Hypertherm cpc cable

Postby Blackslacks » Mon Jun 18, 2018 8:30 pm

Hi folks first post but been lurking for awhile, I'm putting together a homemade plasma table and bought a new Hypertherm 45 xp with machine torch.
I recently purchased a cpc cable for the machine from a third party on fleabay. When the cable arrived I noticed the pinout/color was different than stated in the Hypertherm manual. Green/black is 3/4, red/black is 14/12, white/black is 6/5. Why would they do this? Is this color/pinout used for a different model? The cable should be usable but if someone hooked this up assuming it was wired according to Hypertherm it could damage the cutter or THC couldn't it?

When you save money you have trade offs, the main thing is to use the pin numbers as your references and where they go.
Pins 3 and 4 are to fire the torch pin 6 is the + output from the voltage divider and 5 is the negative to a THC. And 12,14 are for the signal there is an arc. These are in the Manual (from my 65 manual)
