Thermal Dynamic Cutmaster 82 with Proma 150 THC?

Post by No Lemon » Mon Oct 02, 2017 10:42 pm

Just wondering if anyone has the Cutmaster 82 working with a Proma 150 THC?

Do I need a Thermal Dynamics 9-8311 interface kit? I talked to Thermal Dynamics today and was more confused when I got off the phone than when I started. I am using the factory torch that came with the Cutmaster 82.

Should I get a different THC?

I am using Mach3 and Sheet Cam software and a table I got plans from acourtjester on here. I am using Mach3 Plasma as my post processor in Sheet Cam.

I have had my table working for years but can never get the Proma 150 THC to work. I have tried 3 different times now.

I have it hooked up right now but when I start a job with the THC turned on in Mach3 it gets to the first M03 and the torch turns on and it just stops. If I turn off the THC in Mach3 it works fine but no THC.

When I run the test simulator on the Proma THC my DRO shows up and down movement along with the Z axis on my table.

Thanks for any help that someone may have in advance.

First thing I would try is disable the "arc OK" signal. (have it permanently on)

Not meaning you should leave it like that. Just see what happens then.

If you only just want full arc voltage, torch contactor,and arc good, then no on the interface. It's all on the main board. J-10 pins for the Arc good, and trigger. It's in your Manual. If you need divided arc voltage, then you will need the 9-8311 interface kit.

Simple as that...( Page A=7 ) pins 1-3 on the J-10 for arc good.. Pins 6-8 for trigger contactor.. Full arc voltage on the V-1 out, and work 2 main board (Memory there, but close) :lol: Once you add the 9-8211 interface, your machine becomes a A-60 with a roll bar..(-the SL-100 SV torch)
