Cheap Plasma Digital THC
« on: March 05, 2009, 03:54:00 PM »
Hi all,

Im  looking to gauge interest on a product which i could develop a little further and bring to market but dont want to spend a load of time on it if no one is interested.

Basically the product is a $100 digital torch height control providing all the functionality of other systems, preset profiles for different materials, on screen display of torch volts, on screen adjustment of target volts etc etc.

The product would connect to any plasma cutter, probabaly those with hf start also

it could be connected through either a couple of pins on you standard parrallel port or via the modbus

im not gonna tell you it will be perfect or claim to hold it accurate to 0.25volt because it wont and i dont think it needs to but it will keep a good enough distance between the torch and the work to work on warped paltes, i think it is accurate to about 5 volts, jim colt mentioned somewhere this is good enough for air plasma and it cheap so you cant expect it to be perfect

So what do you think? would you be interested?
