2-wire ac NC proximity sensor
These are not used very often I know. I do not have a PLC on this piece of equipemnt that I am attempting to install a monitoring/alarm circuit in. My intent is to use this prox to monitor for weld wire presence and to switch the load to a timer relay when no wire is detected. When the relay times out at 11 seconds it will latch a relay that sounds/lights an alarm condition that requires a key reset to unlatch. I installed the prox using a micro qd with #3 suppling load(120VAC) and #2 to the timer relay. Sometimes the prox doesn't light at all and other times after cycling power I have gotten a flash on/off from the red LED indicating a short circuit. Also, the micro qd cable I have the red/white to load and the red/black to the relay
How far off the track am I?
