I have to change out some relays and I noticed that what we have on hand are 24VDC (which is fine) relays but I noticed that it's rated at 10A 28VDC. Assuming I am reading this correctly and that's the maximum the relay will let through, how big of a problem is it if the unit calls for a 10A 24VDC relay? The difference is very slight, but over the 10% threshold.

Add to that there is one more 24VDC relay that is rated at 30A 28VDC, while the unit calls for 25A 24VDC. Again, how much of a problem is this?


Thank you.
