The data sheet describes the main technical properties of a product. As the publisher, the manufacturer of the product in question thus passes on a great deal of information relevant to the use of the product.
The information on a data sheet includes
- Exact product name
- General properties such as dimensions and weight
- Mechanical properties
- Thermal properties
- Electrical properties
Data sheets are primarily used to inform interested parties about the most important product features. They are therefore often part of the product selection process when making purchasing decisions. Many of the characteristic values in data sheets are determined by testing, so there may be deviations between the product and the data sheet information.
