I am assuming it is possible to use the hypertherm 1000s arc ok or machine xfer dry contact signal to tell the soundlogic board, and then mach to start machine motion after arc is made, but how would that be done?

Torchead or anyone else got any ideas?

Use pin 12 and 14 from the back of the Hypertherm to turn on THC On input in the pin config table.

That easy? Wow, no wonder I couldnt figure it out!! LOL I thought that was something to actually turn on the THC or similar, not for arc ok. I will try it out tonight.

I failed to mention that you need to turn the THC box on in the run screen so it doesn't move until the Hypertherm says the arc has transferred. I made that omission when I first set it up.
