PM45 not coming on

Post by pcilse33 » Sun Nov 26, 2017 6:25 pm

Setting up a new Eagle Plasma 5X10. Bought a new PowerMax45 with a CPC port & interface #228350.
Table seems to be working. Following path.
Problem is PM45 not coming on.
Even tried touching the green and black wires and still nothing from cutter.
Not sure where to go from here. Any help greatly appreciated.

More info is needed what do you mean not coming on, no power on the unit, not making plasma.
How are we to know what the green and black wires go to.
remember we are not there looking at what you see!

Plasma machine is on with all green lights. When I touch the green and black wires (to trigger the unit) no air comes out of the machine head and no arc

According to owners manual green and black are the "start Plasma"

Do you have a machine torch or a hand torch with it?

Sound like a call to Hypertherm support is in order.
