* The Total Combined Current refers to the current that will be drawn from the external power supply to supply the expander and any devices connected to its outputs. The Auxiliary outputs are directly connected via thermal resettable fuses to the N+ N- input terminals, and the maximum current is governed by the trip level of these fuses.
