Plasma cutter shuts off after 5 seconds
« on: December 18, 2017, 04:37:53 PM »
Hello I am converting my router table to plasma, So far everything is going great except  my plasma cutter shuts off after 5 seconds, I have it connect from the hand torch trigger to my spindle start relay.     I can hear the relay click the torch fires then it starts to lower and then nothing, If the two wires going to the relay are crossed it will stay on all day.

If I reset the plasma cutter without doing anything else it will give me an error saying that the torch trigger is depressed during startup.

Never mind found out the torch shuts itself off if it does not make good contact within a few seconds.
