Lotos LTP5500D CNC Cut Chart

Hi All, I’ve finally gotten my CrossFire table operational and have come up with the cut chart for the LTD5500D CNC plasma cutter I’m using. Since I’m new to this forum, I’ll try to upload the cutchart here, but if that doesn’t work, the cut chart and related info is at https://github.com/TomWS1/CrossFire
To determine cutting parameters, I used G-Code scripts modified from those contributed by @Mike_C in Test cut program to find the ideal cutting speed and have placed those files in the repository as well.

For what it’s worth, the cutter, delivered, was $529 on Amazon (uwelding lists at same price, but I don’t know if they have free shipping). Make sure you specify the CNC version as the other version don’t have the right connectors on the back. It took all of 5 minutes to set it up as the cutter includes the CNC connector needed to control it from the CrossFire controller and I’ve had no issues with noise.

TomWS,
I just bought the same plasma and would like to see if you would share some pictures or schematic on how you connected CONTROL SIGNAL (on/ off), VOLTAGE OUTPUT and CONTROL SIGNAL (left and right).

Here is the sheet, documenting the CNC connectors on the back panel, that came with the CNC version of the LTP5500D. As you can see, the Start (CONTROL SIGNAL) is connected to pins 1 & 2 of the 4 pin connector. These two pins connect to the free end of the CrossFire torch control cable - the order isn’t important - it’s just a switch contact.

The Voltage output, which I don’t use yet as I don’t have THC yet, is on the separate 2 pin connector. NOTE: this voltage is a 1:1 divider so is FULL voltage and would need a divider board to process it.

My unit came with the mating connectors, so it was easy to hook up.

Thank you for the reply. To use the THC, i would need a THC controller module, correct?

To use THC on a CrossFire (not Pro), you’ll need more than that. You’ll need to add Z Axis track and motor, Z Axis driver, some SW changes to your configs, and, yes, a THC controller. See @Dicky’s thread to see what’s involved. (THC Installation Step by Step)

Thank you.

Hi tomws how can i contact you for some question about lotos ltd5500D ?

Since you’re new to the forum and aren’t allowed to send personal messages, using posts is the only option. So, what do you want to know?

Thanks for respond
Do you are using lotos LTP5500D in your langmuir?
I recently bought a crossfire and I have no idea if it works or not because this plasma is blowback start as they recommend on the langmuir page .but they also have a message that says they do not recommend it but I think that the one they do not recommend is the old machine what is hf.

Yes, it works well with no interference.

The information on the CrossFire compatibility page is incorrect and probably relates to an earlier version (LTP5000) as you suggest. The LTP5500D is specifically made for CNC systems and @langmuirsystems should update their compatibility information.

Perhaps if @langmuirsystems took a forum poll on what plasma cutters people are using at this point they would be able to easily update their list.
