Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.Unfortunately, the Omron H3Y-2 by itself will not perform what you need.It doesn't have any instantaneous contacts only the timed contacts, so there is no way to seal the circuit to allow the timer to time and complete the functions.You will need another small cube relay to see inline that will allow a it all to work together.See the diagram below for the wiring, let me know any questions.Thanks
