I have an relay that's rated for a 250VAC, 16A load. Would it be possible to also use the same relay for say a 25VDC, and less than 1A load?
From here, relay power ratings - AC vs DC , it seems to imply that that due to arcing, an AC relay would be able to support switching DC as long as the DC voltage is about 1/10 of the AC rating.
Would this apply as a general rule even if DC values are not explicitly stated on the relay's spec sheet, as in, there won't be long-term damage from implementing relays in this manner? The particular relay I'm using is "G5LE-1A-E" with a rated load of 250VAC @ 16A, from here: https://www.digikey.com/products/en?keywords=%09Z2619-ND
