Integra 7766 - Mach4 Plasma
« on: November 21, 2020, 07:09:51 PM »
I'm having some troubles with running programs with my plasma build. I can only cut when I have the THC enabled. If I try to run a program without it, the torch fires but doesn't move. I'm using a Robot3T THC3T-02 THC with UP/DOWN controls, and using the ARC-OK Signal from the THC.

Currently our 7866 plasma package we offer a new Screen with profiles for the plasma settings which can be changed by setting the tool number in mach4 so that you can instantly switch your plasma settings when you change the work piece you are cutting and a new firmware along with it which has proven to be very stable.

We no longer provide support for the 7766 plasma setup but attached is the last updated screen for it. Please save your current screen/profile in case you need to go back to it.

I already have that screen set installed. I've never even been able to finish a successful cut on my plasma table after finishing the build yet. I bought your 7766 then you come out with the 7866 8 months later during the middle of my build, then just this past May you forced me to buy the THC add on strictly for the 7766 that cost an additional $350, and now you won't even provide any support for it?

The old Integra 7766 is still supported.  Since we released a better plasma screen using tip voltage sensor, we stopped updating the plasma screen that use up/down signal from external THC unit.  We have many user who installed the old screen that you are unable to use.  See example here

I have attached the manual and the screen. 

There is a section to test THC logic using emulated up/down/arcok signals so you can verify mach, plugin and controller are working properly without firing the torch, similar to dry run.

It may be your external THC device you are using is not turning on the ARC OK signal at the right time. 

The other option is if you like to use the latest screen http://www.vitalsystem.com/arcpro and get all the high-end features in the new screen, you can purchase the tip voltage sensor adapter board and we will replace your old Integra 7766 with the newer model 7866 at no extra charge.  You can still use the $350 activation you purchased on the new controller. Please email to support at vital if you like to pursue this option.

regards

Im still having problems with the Z axis locking up. I sent an email to your support email asking for instructions to upgrade.
