There are probably 50 or so PlasmaCam machines running in the field with Powermax30 XP's as the cutting process of choice. Yes, there are easy wiring connections.....simply follow the suggestions in the PlasmaCam video manual, if that is not adequate then call PlasmaCam tech support. Even better than tech support is to go to www.plasmacam.com
and click on "Owners Community".....and join the owners community. There you will find about 1000 or so machine owners that all help each other out. You will need your Plasmacam serial number in order to join.
Using the search function on the owners community you can find threads where others have posted proper wiring of the Powermax30, as well as an easy way to fabricate an ohmic contact plate sensor (assuming your machine is upgraded with the advanced height control software version).
I can help you as well, but will not be back in my office until February 25. Contact me at [email protected]

Hey fellas !! Has anyone ever modified a hypertherm 30xp to work with a plasma cam ?
Apparently they are not designed for a plasma table use. They told me to I had to modify the shield so it doesn’t touch the nossle . Plus I have to make the connection to the hieght control sensor ??? I’m almost finished and this hiccup is really stressing me out . Does anyone have any suggestions??
