Installing RS485 kit on 45XP - anyone?

Postby DMoneyAllstar » Wed Apr 19, 2017 11:15 am

I've got the HYP088123 version of the 45XP (came with mech torch, hand torch, CPC port and pendant) and also picked up the #228539 RS-485 field kit. Running this on CommandCNC with CandCNC full automation bundle.

Seen plenty of info on the field kit install on the 65, but nothing on the 45XP. I have no doubts in my abilities, but it sure is nice to see it with my own eyes before I start disassembling my $2.6k toy. 8-)

Any 45XP how-to's out there?

Thanks!

Dan. I have a 45 Xp on the floor with the RS485 installed. If you will drop me a line directly (tom at the website
address) I will have one of the guys open it up and snap a few pics. I got this one with it already installed so I can't address the processs . I HAVE donw it on several 65 and 85 machines and its was drop-dead-easy/

Ok, thanks. It does look drop dead easy on 65-85.

I also see Hypertherm now has kit #428654 for the RS485 upgrade for the 45xp. WTH?????? A couple months ago the HYP customer rep told me to buy the 228539 kit to upgrade the 45xp, so i did. >=(

I'm disappointed in the lack of info on this.

Talked to HYP. The 228539 kit will not work on the 45XP. Need the 428654 kit. Connectors are different.

Grrrr. Could be worse I guess. :oops: :roll:

Going to call my local Baker's Gas & Weld to try and exchange the wrong kit (doubtful). So there may be a new 228539 kit for sale here soon at a discount!

HYP rep sent me the "protocol 807220r4" PDF document, but it doesn't show anything regarding installation of the correct kit 428654. Beginning to wonder if finding the Lost Ark of the Covenant is an easier task! lol

Also got some pics from HYP of the 45XP guts. See attached. Enjoy.

Many thanks to "Charles" at HYP for super fast response!
