Thread: Basic THC?

    Default Basic THC?

    I'm a small operation so I can watch over any cutting done by the machine.

    What is the simplest/cheapest THC controller out there?

    I've got a Primeweld Plasma cutter with CNC outputs.

    Thanks in advance!!

    We are using this one, see if it is suitable for you or not?

    Linuxcnc, QTplasmac config, mesa THCAD and Mesa 7i96s will give you a high performance plasma controller that will blitz any external THC for < $200
    Linuxcnc does not use a traditional THC. Instead it does the torch height internally. It uses a Mesa THCAD to read torch voltage. It is a high performance voltage to frequency converter. The frequency is sent to an encoder input on the 7i96s and its converted to a voltage in software where high performance PID routines keep the torch height constant under control of the motion planner. Because the motion planner knows everythuing thts going on it does a better job.

    I ordered a cut60 on Black Friday so just started looking into a THC myself. This is just a hobby machine for me and trying to balance the cost vs performance tradeoffs...... so I'm curious if you got one installed and what you think of it. I also ordered a tig325x to upgrade my 225x so trying to stay more towards the cost side of the equation without going too cheap. Thanks.
