Bob's Plasmac Build
tommylight wrote: Bob, I think I already mentioned it here somewhere, the client I built the rotaray plasma ( links to YouTube videos in the show your stuff section of this forum ) requested a 6X2meter cut area so I do have to leave some room and that makes it at least 7X2.5 meters. Chasing unicorns, or 7m rails !!!
Rod, I would highly suggest not using the spindle on directly wired to a plasma cutter, I am sure it is OK in most cases but I have seen a fair share of manufacturing cost cuts in all sorts of equipment.
Oh and Bob, you've been holding on us, what is that on the monitor? A new screen, or did I miss something somewhere???
Thats Silverdragon under gscreen. It’s badass perfect.

I used the ones you have there and replaced most of them when I added ohmic sensing (becasue I had to by a pack of 5). The only one left disables the stepper drives on estop (Just becasue I've been lazy but I have the part here.).
The 7i77 has opto couplers on them why would you need opto isolated relays?
I just got an isolated power supply for the ohmic stuff.
