seen. What literature?

>BTW, the DigiKey catalog rates the Panasonic/Matsushita 3W at 350V,
? In the current catalog, the max. v rating of the 1w, 2w and 3w units
are all 350v. This is not logical since the film path in a 3w unit is
not the same as a 1w unit. . Previous catalogs listed the Panasonic3w
units at 500v max.
