Cut height Problems

I just recently completed the DHC to DHC2 upgrade along with the switch to Design Edge. I am having trouble with consistent cut heights. Every pierce seems to be at a different height and as it is making longer cuts, the torch keeps plunging into the metal to the point where it shuts down the cut. I am very new to this whole process and am sure it is a simple setting I have wrong. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am having the same issue and since January that I changed to design edge. I have gone through two controllers and as we all know they aren't cheep we all know. I have two plasma tables and just lost total control of the second machine and have know idea where to go or turn now. Is anyone else having issues with this?

1 - When you change settings, or consumables, or when you start a new sheet, tick the Z-shift and arc voltage shift "auto calibrate on next cut" functions under the Height Control settings tab.

2 - I don't remember now if the option is under Height Control or under Machine Control, but you should specify that height control is to be disabled when cut speed drops below xx % of nominal (we use 85%, I think).
