Hello everyone. New to this forum and wow is there a lot of good info here!
Not sure where to post this, so forgive me if it's in the wrong place.
I picked up a used MG systems 6'x20' plasma table with Hypertherm Edge controls and a Hypertherm Max100D for dirt cheap.
To say I don't know what I'm doing would be an understatement (kinda dumb with electronics)! But I'm determined to get this thing going and I'm going to learn alot along the way!
This unit has Dynapar Opal Encoders on it, and I've determined that one is bad (switched from one location to the other and the problem followed the encoder to the other axis). The machine dosen't know where it is in its travel on that axis. Anyway, I'm trying to find a replacement at a decent cost. There are quite a few on ebay that look really really similar and can be bought cheep. My question is how do I know what's interchangeable with what I've got? Is there a cross reference somewhere?
What's on there now: Dynapar Opal Encoder
Any help would be greatly apreciated. I'm trying to avoid buying it from MG due to cost.
