You will need to install the screen found in the download folder and place the macro in the macros directory for the profile folder.
STEP 5: Configurations Screen
Torch motion starts the number of seconds you set as DT after the ARC signal is determined. This can be a value between 0.1 to 9.9 seconds.
Set the height.
Set the Cut height.
Set the OFF SET_Z of the switch of a floating head as a probe when using a probe signal to determine the material position.
Z Top Set the safety height, the Z axis will move to this height with the M2015 macro for ending the cut.
Set the velocity/FeedRate at which the probing is executed.
Z Min Height
Set the travel height when probing.
STEP 6: Macros:
M03: Probes, does the initial pierce, and sets the head at the cutting height:
Run G31 Z “Z min. height” F “Probing FR”
Move the Z Offset Z and set Z0
Move the Z Height
Wait for Pierce_Delay
Move the Z Cut_Height
M05: Ends cutting.
Move Z to Z_Top
M62: Start Cutting.
M63: Ends Cutting.
STEP 7: Test the Wiring and Configuration:
Press the knob three times to enter test mode in the THC and observe the ARC OK signal activate.
Turn the knob up or down to move the axis and observe the Torch UP and Torch Down LEDs activate when moving in each direction. The Z-Axis should also move to adjust the position.
To exit test mode, press the knob once.
If the height adjustment is not smooth or overshoots the position, lower the % of correction speed.
Make sure MACH3 is properly licensed, and THC does not work on DEMO Mode.
If you do not see action on the signals coming from the THC, try tracing them by measuring them at the output of the THC, the input of the breakout board, the LEDs of the breakout board, the Software Diagnostics, the software function, etc... You need to understand where you are losing them.
