Hand torch or machine torch? (completely different wiring based on safety interlock).

If hand torch....then you must follow the directions supplied by Plasmacam that are in their video manual. There are two wires (red black pair) that connect to screw terminals on the main power board inside the Powermax45 XP, these are for reading the cutting voltage which is used to start and stop motion as well as for height control feedback. The other two wires (black white pair) are the torch trigger connections....when using a hand torch these are spliced into the torch safety trigger wiring inside the Powermax45 XP.....you must cut a wire and splice the white and black wires to the ends. (this modifies the trigger wiring....so Hypertherm cannot help with these connections.

If a machine torch.....you need to be sure your Powermax45XP is equipped with the CPC interface connector (round 14 pin Amp connector on rear panel). If not, this connector and its related wiring and voltage divider board can be purchased from any Hypertherm dealer , part number 428653, and installed in the field. Then, you should order a plug and play cable from www.pjmetalfab.com which plugs into the CPC connector, the other end plugs into the connector on the Plasmacam control box. If you have the ability to make this cable yourself, then contact me and I can provide details for connections as well as manufacturer numbers for the connectors for each end of the cable. Best regards, Jim Colt Hypertherm
