Question about Omron E2K-C25MY1 Proximity Switch

1 Answer

Proximity Switch faulting out irregulary

What: Omron E2K-C25MY2 Capacitive Proximity Switch
Problem Summary:
I have the switch wired in series with a manual on/off switch to a time delay that controls a motor starter.
When I turn the manual switch to the off position and back on, the light on the proximity switch is dull red. I have to wave my hand in front of the switch a few times for it to become bright red and function properly.
Also, after the light becomes bright red, the switch will work properly for 50+ cycles and then become dull red again, requiring me to wave my hand in front to reset it.
This condition has occurred on 2 brand new switches and I've tried wiring into both sides of the manual switch.
Please help.
Thank you,
Stephen

I dont know what the inviroment is but it sounds like a plant of some sort, the inviroment is important and the electrical service is important. There could be serveral issues here. I would check the electrical service for phase balance and investigate harmonics created through electronics.

when you write that you had found no fault with the switches, what were you trying to find? I'm not familiar with the wiring in your car, but in my vehicle everything is in series and parallel relays. So if one drops out or malfunctions, the fan does not function. Most cars keep the fan running after the car has been stopped from running because of residual heat in the engine. If it runs beyond 15 minutes I would start to be suspicious.

You can use a multi voltage mains adapter for your Omron. These are available at electronic stores ot on the Internet. Make sure it is a DC adapter and switch to 6 volts also make sure the power connector is set correctly to the polarity of the Omron power socket.

I use Omron blood pressure monitors and I can say that they are up to the mark. Their readings are very accurate and have not caused any problems so far.

You want 3 minute 'off delay' timer.
When timer is energized with push button or momentary electrical signal, circuit remains ON for set amount of time, and then turns OFF.

Aug 15, 2011 Dayton/ Grainger website is offline

Most delay timers have 1 amp capacity rating, so circuit needs fast acting 1 amp fuse, and timer controls separate relay or contactor unless Load is equal to 100 watt light bulb.

1998 bmw 740 il will not start....lights, radio come on, doors lock and unlock, not sure why it won't strart seems to be locked, is it the alarm system?


Could be the alarm system, the key proximity sensor, etc.
But start with the easy stuff first, like the neutral safety switch, etc.
If it does not start in park, try neutral.
To see if the starter is ok, jump the large terminal at the solenoid, to the small solenoid energizing push on terminal. (make sure in park or neutral, and parking break engaged!)
It is possible to simply wire a momentary contact switch and bypass all the alarm stuff.
