1. WHERE TO LOCATE YOUR PLASMA CUTTING MACHINE
Before you unpack your machine, select the area where you will use your machine. There are no hard-and-fast rules for its location, but below are a few guidelines.
1.1 There should be an area around the plasma cutting machine suitable for the length of job that you will be cutting.
1.2 Adequate lighting. The better the lighting, the more accurate and safely you will be able to work
1.3 Solid floor. You should select a solid flat floor, preferably concrete or something similar.
1.4 Close to power source and ground rod.
1.5 Adequate air ventilation.
2. ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
Ensure that when installing the electrical supply to the machine, that 220v single-phase is supplied. For the plasma power supply, refer to the manufacture’s technical manual for power specifications. It is not possible to recommend a breaker size, as this will be dependent on the specification of the machine that you purchase.
Note: A qualified electrician must carry out the electrical installation.
3. PLASMA POWER SUPPLY
Place the plasma power supply and/or remote arc starter at the rear of the frame. Keep the CNC computer controller as far from the power supply and/or remote arc starter as possible. Follow the power supply grounding diagram found in the system manual.
