Full Digital Torch Height Control Expansion Module


HUH?  What's this?  Because the DTHC is now a tiny plug-in module you can make ANY UBOB based product into a full blown Digital Torch Height Control.  Comes with a matching THC Sensor Card for interface to your Plasma cutter.
NOTE:  YOU CANNOT HAVE A ISS-O2 SPINDLE SPEED AND DTHC-Expansion Module plugged in at the same time.





Spindle Saver is a defined (by the user) spindle soft start and burn-in profile that provides warming the spindle and bearings up slowly as required by the manufacturer.  Screen settings allow the profile to be applied anytime the spindle has been inactive for over 10 minutes.

ISS-02 Spindle Speed Expansion Module

With exclusive Spindle Saver technology to use a stepped speed increase on commercial spindles.

(DISCONTINUED!  ISS-03 due to be released April 2013)

Control your VFD (for 3Phase, AC Spindles or your DC  Motor control if equipped with an input for 0-10VDC) from the MACH screen, or from "S" commands in G-code.  The SPS module is extremely linear and uses an embedded processor.  It gets its speed commands from the UBOB interface (serial connection to MACH) so it does not use up 2 valuable MACH signal pins like the PWM or S&D designs.  The module installs in 5 minutes into the front panel expansion port of the MP3000.  It comes with a remote interface card to make the connections to the VFD easy.  It is totally isolated from PC logic so you don't have to worry about the VFD or DC control not being at the same ground.  It puts out a voltage that is proportional to the persentage of max RPM you define (so if you have a 20,000 RPM spindle and you command 10,000) it puts out 5.0 volts. The card has a RUN relay and REVERSE relay. (Most VFD's require use one or both signals.) 

Auto-test functions and custom screens and plug-ins for MACH make this one easy to install and easy to troubleshoot.  Ships with Remote VFD Breakout and 25ft DB9 cable for the Breakout.
