#190141 - Not the point
Responding to: Raghunathan's previous message
A power rating is about how much power the thing can dissipate without overheating.

If you have specific concerns about the current rating of the contact, and that isn't covered in the datasheet, then you need to consult the manufacturer (or their representative/distributor) directly.
