this is the only part witch is  urgent for now:

Notes:
 When in THC mode, motion will not begin until THCON (Torch OK) signal becomes active.

This being said, my TORCH ON is lit up anytime the THC is in test mode, the TORCH UP and TORCH DOWN were alternating but the TORCH ON was a solid led on.

ok your M3 macro is Standard, should be no Problem.

what are your Settings in

Config -> Ports&Pins -> Spindle Setup ->CW Delay Spin Up ?

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

This setting I have always adjusted based on material thickness, but I usually leave it on .5 seconds as a standard. My spin down is 1 second and the immediate relay off is checked

i have tested this Little GCode:

F50
S0
G1 X0 Y0
M3
G1 X10 Y0

here:

i have two situations tested

1. run Programm without THC ON Signal -> machine waits after M3 until THC ON is high.
2. run Programm with THC ON allready high -> Machine start's M3 immediately (after CW Delay Spin Up time)

so i am a little bit out off ideas now.

BTW Config ->Ports&Pins -> Spindle Setup -> Special Option's are all disabled ?

Torch/code freezes after M03....


That is correct behaviour - the the torch is firing on the M03 signal BUT mach3 is NOT seeing an Arc-Ok signal so it will NOT move at all.

The Proma is either not sending or not seeing the arc-ok.

As a test, go ports&pins and disable Arc-Ok IIRC this should let it move without seeing the signal.

one more idea:

pls doublecheck that the port and pin you have configured is nowhere else used in Input configuration.

I got arc ok signal, torch is firing and moving. I had to disable my x home z home a home y home, but getting proper signal now. Now the issue is that the THC is diving the torch head into the material when it’s going for its 2nd pierce
