In the Image... I am trying to put 30A 12V Relay OMRON G8P-1A4P 12VDC parallel to Push Start Button (Dual Starter control for 1HP Pump Motor). But every time relay picks up contact stick... Before using the Relay I was using 25A 24-480VAC SSR (Zero Crossing) but 4-5 of them failed due to large Surge / Inrush current. So I switched to mechanical Relay. But now the relay contacts are sticking.Do I have a weld current issue?
I also tried to add RC Snubber 0.1uF 600V + 66 Ohms but did'nt help.
Please suggest some idea of how I can avoid Arcing. Relay contacts are rated for 30A / 250VAC my load is max 20A for just 0.5-1 Second. Then contactor picks up and motor is operated through Contactor. No load is given to relay later on.Could I have underestimated the surge current?
