Everlast Raw Voltage Wiring- Still Not Working!

Hello everyone,

I have the Crossfire Pro with a Everlast 82i plasma cutter and I am having problems with the THC wiring. First of all it seems like this is nothing new, Everlast units are known to have problems with their CNC port.

First way I had it was using the CNC port. I figured I would try it this way, even though it is known issue, as I ordered my Everlast unit when it was on back order. So this machine is fresh off the boat and figured maybe this issue was fixed. Nope. I could get a torch speed reading, but THC live was reading 0v. So I went through the troubleshooting guide, did some forum reading and decided Raw voltage hookup was the only way.

Here’s what I did…

This is the board you work with inside the Everlast unit. Connections on the right go to your CNC plug. Connections on your left are the “Raw” connections.

Step 1 is I wired the torch On/Off. This is labeled start/stop in my Everlast manual and is pins 1 and 2. I did wire these using the right side of the board connections and this is what the two wires look like…

I put these on connectors to be able to unplug them if needed like so. This goes to the Torch On/Off connector which goes into the Langmuir electronics unit.

Next are the Raw voltage connections. I used the required Raw voltage banana connectors and wired them into the 2 wires off of the left side of the board like so. Red banana connector is positive Raw voltage and goes to clamp which is the red wire inside the Everlast unit. Black banana connector is negative Raw voltage and goes to the torch which is the black wire inside the Everlast unit.

Now to confirm the wiring, I did a continuity test from the black banana connector (torch) to the actual torch connector on the front of the Everlast unit and results came back successful.

I then connected the output cable to PV Output.

SO, all that being said and done, I do have torch speed and I can get an arc when running a file, but it stops after 1 inch and says lost arc. When I watch the THC live voltage I get 0 and it does not change. Can anybody see what I might have wrong?

Thanks,

I have the 62i and went directly to the actual power feeds to the torch to get my raw voltage.
Then I had similar problems andcrefkased my thc.
Try running without thc and see if it works. That will help everyone sort it out withyou

You may want to recheck your banana plug, I think red is neg and black is pos.

And may I ask why you took the unit apart and wired it like that when you have a plug right their to use? I just don’t get why people do this. You do know that can void your warranty.

Ok I will try it without the THC tonight. Thanks

When using the divided voltage red is negative and black is positive. With raw voltage it is opposite. You have to wire Everlast units this way as they have problems with the CNC plug from the manufacture.

Like I said check your banana cable some are wired red pos and black neg and some are red neg and black pos.

Fire the torch and see what voltage you get directly out of the banana plugs. That should be 120-150 volts. If that checks out, measure the voltage out of the THC plug that normally plugs into the Electronics box. That should be around 1.7 to 2.2 volts or thereabouts.

If that voltage looks good, then you can rule out everything that is external to the electronics box.

Are you running a laptop with that charger that uses a third prong? Or a desktop?

Ok I will try that when I get off from work tonight and see what I get. I am running it off a laptop with a 3 prong charger.

So I finally got back to it, I am only getting 1.8v when firing the torch manually and that is at the banana plugs. So that tells me I have it connected to raw voltage incorrectly?

I then tried running the same code with the THC unplugged and still received the “Lost arc…” error code.

Yes you are only seeing 1.8v, then you aren’t tied into raw voltage correctly.
