I’m currently using a CrossFire with the XL kit and water tray. I’ve added a Z control with inductive sensors, limit switches, and am cutting with a HyperTherm Powermax 30 (NOT an XP) and the manual torch. It has no CPC control, but I’ve got a Robot THC3T-02 wired up with the Robot 50:1 divider and see what I think are voltages within expected range. The probing and retract works flawlessly, and every new hole is measured before cutting. The problem is that I have tried everything I can think of but cannot get values into the THC controller that automatically control a set distance. I either have values that don’t change the Z, or it will invariably rise or fall until out of bounds or crashing. So until I can afford an HP45XP my ability to cut warped sheets is maybe just a dream.
So my question is has anyone out there gotten a HyperTherm 30 to work with THC, and what settings did you start with (Height, Area, Sensitivity and Arc-Voltage)?
Special thanks go out to Tool Junkie and Dicky for inspiring me to mod my table!
