Hey everyone! I am upgrading my Lotos LTP5500DCNC to an X45 torch. I installed it last night, and it did not fire. I’m just curious if anyone has a pinout diagram from the Lotos machine and what the pinout should be on the X45 torch? The Lotos machine is flashing “Torch Protection” mode on it. Thanks for any input you can provide!
Pins 8 & 9 on the new X45 torch are shorted to each other, whereas on the IPT60 torch that came with the machine has those two pins running to the torch end. Also, the X45 torch does not have pins in 3 & 5 (if I remember correctly), whereas the IPT60 has pins in those locations.
@TinWhisperer ,The issue is the wires in the Torch connector. Lotos 5500D has a one way of doing it, most mfrs have different ways. Somewhere in my collection of files I have this but won’t be able to dig into it until tomorrow morning.
@insandity Welcome to the forum. You will have to move some of the pins on the torch connector to get it to work. This is easy to do, but you will need to know how… mañana
Hi Josh - its Pin 8 - 9 continuity issue. My guess is pins came loose during shipment.
We do pin-out test, fire actuation vs psi, and High Amp stress test on every torch we ship.
Please call us and we’re happy to get you going -
I picked up an LTP5500DCNC from Amazon for my Crossfire that’s in the mail. How do you like the X45 torch compared to the original PT60 that the Lotos came with?
Are the improvements in cut quality and consumable life significant enough that you would make the purchase over again?
