Energy input rate (10.2),
Holding capacity (10.3),
Holding temperature calibration (10.3),
Preheat energy rate, (10.4),
Idle energy rate (10.5), and
Holding energy rate (10.6).
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
