I have that, save your $$$ it will not mean much working with Mach3's " CB "  MACRO LANGUAGE.

hIYA Jeff, Do you have the Mach3 programmers reference manual ???  IF not it would be a BIG help to you (;-).

By the way I have not dumped on you , just waiting to see what your next move would be (;-)

hIYA Robert if you have looked at some of the "others" cut values you will see MOST are not even close to HT specs (;-) And that is bascially a design issue because MOST of them are using old technology. It is simply BEST to do as Keith suggested and do a simple test cut to determene a good setting as far as height and set volts . You can figure it out in one or two simple test cuts.

Also if there are ZERO values published then the Manf does not really care about its customers (;-)

And YES I am a Loyal HT fan. And THEY have earned every bit of that respect over the years. Their HARD WORK has made my job a LOT easier and has put a LOT of money in my pocket. (;-)

IF I ever run into a weird problem I can simply call Jim and ask him about it. So far I have always gotten an answer. NOT always what I WANTED to hear but an honest answer all the same.

Look in the config I think you will find a setting to LOCK/UNLOCK  the DROS to the setup units.

YOU are using Metric units but running in INCH mode . FOR best results IF you are going to normally  RUN in inches you need to setup the machine for inches.

(;-) When cutting I normally adjust to BEST cut and that does not always agree with HTs chart data. Remember that that data was derived from LAB data not real world cutting where the variable conditions can be  a lot different.

NOW most times the data is  close but sometimes NOT so close. (;-)

I think you WILL find out differently in the real world (;-)  Even Jim will tell you two things.  Teh Amp rating sets teh power density of the plasma arc so always try to cut at  MAXIUMUM power density( 40 amp tip and 40 amp setting)  And teh Cut height is teh important value not arc voltage. They give you the arc voltage to get you in the ball park. You would set YOUR voltage value to represent teh actual cutting height listed in teh table BASED on your torch components reguardless of what your voltage display says.

Torch and tip design also plays a large part of what teh actual voltage will be cutting at a preset height.   A longer length combination of nozzle components will give you are higher voltage than a shorter length combination .

Just a thought, (;-) TP

The cutting voltage is actually irrellavant. It is the cutting HEIGHT that is important. The voltage level will be what it will be depending on all the elctronics and calibration involved.  BUT teh cut charts are a great starting point.

The nice thing about the HT units are they STAY on the leading edge of plasma cutting technology. A lot of others may lag behind as much as 20 years in Plasma cutting technology and design. A lot of them are actually using OLD HT tech that the patents have run out. Most of the times even the NEW torch tech can be upgraded to an older unit.

Could you not buy a HT voltage divider card and install it on another brand  ????

The absolute easiest way to GOTO is simply use the MDI line. Type in where you want to go and hit enter

G0 X25.25 then hit enter and away you go.
