FA277438

23 January 2021

Issue:
The LC1F500 flashes near the coil when the unit is energized.  Is this normal?

Product Line:
IEC Contactors and Starters

Environment:
Tesys F Contactors

Cause:
Product Characteristics

Resolution:
This "coil flash" is normal.  When the unit pulls in, the coil circuit is switched internally via a snap switch.  When the first circuit is broken, there is a brief flash of light from the arc which is normal.
