Crossfire Pro / HTP Microcut 875 with machine torch head and cnc connections. Has cut fine for two weeks
Ran into an issue yesterday 1/4 of the way through a cut, in which I lost Arc voltage which stopped my cut, after tinkering around I noticed the machine would cut for a couple moments and then shut off acting as if their was no ground. I replaced my consumables, and disconnected and reconnected all cables to plasma torch and usb/ thc connections. After this the table seemed to return to normal as i tested several small pieces, shortly after i ran a large cut file and it began failing 1/2 of the way through displaying IHS fail, the torch is not in the expected initial state before starting IHS cycle, ensure sufficient slack in your torch lead. I attempted to run the file from the most recent code line and the torch failed again, upon inspection of my connection to my torch lead to my plasma cutter i noticed pin 8 had seated incorrectly and bent the bracket it sits in. The torch still fires and the plasma itself is not throwing any error codes. THC light on firecontrol v20.4 is only on when metal surface in contacted by torch
However I suspect this is not the main issue to my problem, on several occasions I have been shocked through my laptop during cuts as it sits on the laptop stand. My laptop is connected to my charger as well as connected through USB to Langmuir control unit.
I will take video of the failed cut tomorrow if I continue to encounter the issue however below I’ve attached the torched lead possible connection issue I spoke about, any input on error code being generated as well as getting zapped through my laptop would be greatly appreciated.
