ok just to confirm wiring:

power supply V+ -> G540 terminal 11
power supply GND -> G540 terminal 12
power supply GND -> Proma terminal COM
Proma terminal UP -> G540 terminal 1
Proma terminal DWN -> G540 terminal 2
Proma terminal ARC -> G540 terminal 3

Mach3 Config -> Ports & Pins -> Inputs
THC ON       - Enabled checked - Port 1 Pin 12
THC UP       - Enabled checked - Port 1 Pin 10
THC DOWN - Enabled checked - Port 1 Pin 11

Mach3 1024 Screen set -> diagostics -right hand side about middle

there are three LED's Torch ON , Torch UP , Torch Down

put just for test a wire from

power supply GND -> G540 terminal 1

now Torch Up LED should be on.


 



anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

My g540 pin 12 goes to my power supply V-. It has always been wired like this.

That is correct, 0v, GND, -v are generally the same thing.

Everything seems to be hooked up correctly and I’m using my proma right now just to test voltage from the arc and the proma is getting a bad arc reading or something it keeps cutting in and out

When I put my proma in test mode it shows arc on and up on proma and in diagnostic it shows torch up, torch on, no movement from torch though. When I run a gcode, it starts, moves to position, fires the plasma and doesn’t move, just continues to blast.
