MPxx5004 temperature ratings.

The temperature rating numbers are confusing for this series of sensors.  There is the "Ambient Operating Temperature (Min-Max) (°C)" value of -40 to 100 from the Product selector.  That looks good to me.  But then there are two numbers on the datasheet Absolute Maximum Ratings table: Storage Temperature of -30 to 100 °C and Operating temperature of 0 to 85 °C.  Which is it?


My application would be in an environment -40 to 85 °C, but the sensor would only be read when the temperature was in the 0-60 °C range (it would always be powered).
