TL331: Input current IIK

Part Number: TL331
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: LM393

Hi E2E,

In the TL331 datasheet, there is an added parameter in the Absolute Maximum Ratings which is the Input current, IIK of -50mA. Could you please explain further this parameter other than what is mentioned in the datasheet that it will be sinking a maximum of -50mA current and it can cause output to be incorrect? Are there any certain conditions in which this will happen?
