I have a Nertajet ZIP 5 Plamsa Cutter and am just wanting to find out if there will be any issues using it with a TM1 Setup ?
Typically the only issues that come up with unknown plasma cutters is High Frequency electronic interference, and automatic height control.
If the cutter produces High Frequency noise, typically we would recommend shielding and grounding of all of the electronic equipment and the plasma cutter itself. We typically resell Thermal Dynamics and Hypertherm plasma cutters that are not High Frequency generating devices that work very well with out system, although we do have a few customers running High Frequency cutters, in the range of people who have done no shielding, to people who have shielded everything because the noise was causing communication problems.
The second issue was Arc Voltage, if you are never planning on putting an Automatic Height Control system on the table, then it wouldn't be an issue. But if you were planning on purchasing one of our AVHC systems, we would want to see if the plasma cutter had available to us the Raw Arc-Voltage take off points, and what the voltage range for those points is. Our height control operates in a range of 0-300 volts.
