Question about Omron E2K-C25MY1 Proximity Switch
What: Omron E2K-C25MY2 Capacitive Proximity Switch
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.
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.
