So I started again from scratch and managed to get it working. I must have somehow screwed up the settings before. I suspect that it was the line relating to the X/Y limits as this time I did not get a limit error message, at any rate it is now searching and starting the arc as expected. I did not need to uncomment the line regarding the Z-axis.

Unfortunately I did not manage to get any further. I was not getting the arc confirm signal, which I traced to me leaving the THC interface unplugged whilst I tested the signals. After plugging it back in I retried and ended up with smoke coming from inside my THC unit. Not good. Looks like I will need to get it replaced / fixed.

Thanks for the help Tom. it really was simple to setup.

You are welcomed, always.
Take some pictures of the innards of the thc, in particular the part that got devoid of it's mortal coil ( the burnt parts ), maybe i can help there also if it ends up being something that you can replace, but first check the wiring from the plasma cutter and the power supply wiring to the thc.

Thanks for the assistance, very much appreciated.

After speaking with the supplier I've got a replacement part on order, its the voltage regulator, and the reason that it fried was that the connections to the plasma unit arced out on the metal case of the THC unit. The THC unit is not a great design as the terminals are every close to the case but an issue easily remedied once I get the replacement part in, this will hopefully be tomorrow.

Sorry for asking this here, but I don't know where else.

I have been trying to communicate with Proma.

Sent message via their website.

Several emails.

Even message via ebay.

Can't get a response.

Is there a contact I can use. (I only speak English. Sorry)

Well i have not been in contact with them lately, been busy with KUKA robots and some other stuff and i have not sold the last cnc plasma i have built so i did not have the need for THC. I can happily report that none of their THC i sold with my machines had any issues, none, null, 0 !!! They are running all day long every day, so i am extremely happy with them. I mention this because i live in a country with a messed up mentality so if any of them would fail, i would have A LOT of problems.
Regards,
Tom

Yes you can, but not strictly, they can be anywhere and still work.
There is a read me with those files, and at the begining of this thread. Read that carefuly and do the changes.
There is also info on seting up the Proma elektronika 150 THC in this thread.

Have you also checked the step and dir pins?
Right click on the ini file and choose open with, enter linuxcnc under use custom command.
It should open and run.
