Introduction
2.1
Overview
The SmartFlow Plasma Cutting System is a
streamlined, high performance plasma cutting
package designed for use exclusively with the
ESAB Vision CNC. ESAB’s exclusive SmartFlow
technology integrates gas and water control into
the cutting machine CNC.
Using a system of proportional valves driven by
CNC outputs, this system dramatically reduces the
amount of plumbing hardware necessary to control
the plasma torch. Operation is simplified by putting
control of gas and water flow rates on screen at the
Vision CNC.
2.2
System Description
2.2.1 Component Description
The SmartFlow system components include a
plumbing box, a flow tube box, and a regulator
panel. The plumbing box contains the proportional
valves and plumbing necessary to control gas and
water flows. The flow tube box contains three flow
indicator tubes, which provide visual feedback to
the machine operator of the actual gas and water
flow rates. The regulator panel provides pressure
regulation for the incoming gas and water supplies.
When the PT-15XL water injection torch is used,
the complete SmartFlow cutting system also
includes a plasma power supply, a recirculating
water cooler, a cut water pump, an air curtain
control, and the Vision CNC. If the PT-19XL dry
torch is used, then the cut water supply system and
air curtain control are omitted.
The following pages show the complete system
overviews.

Connections
3.2.1 Hose and Cable Connections
The SmartFlow Plasma Cutting package is
designed to be interfaced with the ESAB Vision
CNC and any ESP Plasma Power Supply.
Connections to the plumbing box are illustrated
here.
A color code is used on the hose
connections between the flow tube box and the
plumbing box:
Green = Oxygen
Yellow = Nitrogen
White = Cooling Water

The Control Cable Entrance plate can be removed,
allowing the control cables to be installed or
removed without any re-wiring at the plug terminals.
The Options Cover is replaced by an additional
hose adaptor when the PT-19XL is used with a
Secondary Shield kit, allowing the plumbing box to
control shield gas flow. The Options Cover also
allows space for a third power cable connector for
PT-15XL installations cutting at 1000 Amps.
3.2.2 Pilot Arc Cable Connections
The Pilot Arc Cables must be connected properly
to the insulated high voltage terminals at the Arc
Starter Box, as shown here.
The Pilot Arc Ground Cable (from the plasma power
supply) is connected to TB1, toward the open side
of the plumbing box.
The Pilot Arc Torch Cable (from the torch leads) is
connected to TB3, toward the back of the
plumbing box.

4.4
CNC Setup
The SmartFlow Plasma System may is interfaced to
the ESAB Vision CNC. The following parameters
are adjusted through the CNC. Prior to plasma
cutting, check these parameters at the Vision CNC:
Page 16
Standoff
This parameter adjusts the actual cutting height
that the torch will maintain, after the arc has
started.
Initial Height
Set the distance to raise the torch after sensing the
plate. When VHC is turned on, the torch will lower
to the plate, then retract this distance before
starting the arc.
Start Gas Flow
This parameter adjusts the flow of gas prior to and
during arc starting. Start Gas, which is Nitrogen, is
flowed at this rate during preflow and postflow.
Cut Gas Flow
This parameter adjusts the flow of plasma gas
during plasma cutting. When the arc starts, the
gas supplied to the torch switches from the Start
Gas Flow rate to the Cut Gas Flow rate. Cut Gas
may be Oxygen or Nitrogen.
Start Water
Flow
Systems equipped with a water injection torch use
Cut Water. It can be flowed at a reduced rate prior
to and during arc starting. This parameter sets the
water flow during preflow, arc starting, and
postflow.
Cut Water
Flow
This parameter sets the water flow rate after arc
starting, during the cutting process.
Start Shield
Gas
Systems equipped with a secondary shield instead
of a cut water system use the SmartFlow plumbing
box to control Shield Gas flow. This parameter
sets the Shield Gas flow rate during preflow, arc
starting, and postflow.
Shield Gas
This parameter sets the Shield Gas flow rate after
the arc starts, during the cutting process.
Remote
Current
Set the cutting Amperage for the plasma power
supply.
Pre Switch Cut
Gas
This timer sets the length of time prior to starting
the arc that the system will switch from start gas to
cut gas. This allows the system to be used equally

torch
Plasma Rise
On Pierce
Set this timer according to the length of time you
want the plasma torch to raise, starting at the
moment the arc strikes. This can be used to raise
the torch while piercing to avoid blow-back and
spatter. See the chart following this list.
Plasma Pierce
Time
This timer starts when the Plasma Rise On Pierce
time ends. The lift motor is de-energized, AHC is
turned OFF, and machine motion is held. This
timer can be set longer for thicker material, to allow
more time to pierce through the material, while the
torch is held at a set height. See the chart below.
Plasma Travel
Delay
This timer starts when the Plasma Pierce Time
ends. AHC is turned ON, but Travel is delayed.
This can be set longer for thicker materials to allow
time to pierce through the material. It also allows
the torch to reach the cutting height before travel
starts. See the chart following this list.
Master Up
This timer sets the length of time the torch will be
raised at the end of each cut.
Refer to Section 5 of this manual for the appropriate
values for each of these parameters.

Technical Description
6.2.1 Gas Control
Control of cut gas and start gas is accomplished
with two solenoid valves, a fixed pressure regulator,
and a proportional valve.
Start gas (Nitrogen) and cut gas (Oxygen) are both
supplied to the plumbing box, where they are
applied to the inlets of the solenoid valves. Only
one of these two valves will be open at a time. The
outlet of the two valves are manifolded together
then fed into the fixed pressure regulator. This
regulator sets the incoming line pressure to the
proportional valve at a value within the range of the
valve. The proportional valve is controlled by a
voltage signal from the CNC, and sets the flow rate
of gas based on the status of the plasma cutting
cycle. A pressure switch monitors line pressure
into the fixed pressure regulator, and provides an
input into the CNC. The CNC can then shut down
the process if gas pressure drops below a preset
threshold. A pressure gauge displays actual gas
pressure supplied to the torch by tapping off of the
output manifold. This important indication provides
visual feedback to the operator, and can be helpful
in spotting torch problems.

6.2.2 Cut Water Control
Control of cut water is accomplished with a
solenoid valve and a proportional valve.
Deionized cut water is supplied to the plumbing box
and applied to the inlet of the solenoid valve. The
outlet of the valve is fed into the proportional valve,
and is also monitored by a pressure switch. The
proportional valve is controlled by a voltage signal
from the CNC, and sets the flow rate of water
based on the status of the plasma cutting cycle.
The pressure switch monitors line pressure into the
proportional valve, and provides an input into the

6.2.3 Secondary Shield Gas Control
The SmartFlow Plumbing Box is designed to
support both the PT-15XL and PT-19XL torches.
Since the PT-19XL is a dry torch, meaning it does
not use cut water, the cut water control
components can be used to control the secondary
shield gas. An additional hose connection is
installed on the rear of the plumbing box in place of
the options cover, to connect the controlled shield
gas to the secondary shield.
Control of secondary shield gas is accomplished
with a solenoid valve and a proportional valve.
Shield gas is supplied to the plumbing box through
a pressure regulator, then applied to the inlet of the
solenoid valve. The outlet of the valve is fed into
the proportional valve, and is also monitored by a
pressure switch.
The proportional valve is
controlled by a voltage signal from the CNC, and
sets the flow rate of shield gas based on the status
of the plasma cutting cycle. The pressure switch
monitors line pressure into the proportional valve,
and provides an input into the CNC. The CNC can
then shut down the process if gas pressure drops
below a preset threshold.

6.2.4 Cooling Water Circuit
The cooling water circuit consists of two reverse
flow check valves and a flow switch.
The cooling water circuit is a closed loop
recirculating system which cools the electrode and
torch body of the PT-15XL, or cools the electrode,
nozzle, nozzle retaining cup, and torch body of the
PT-19XL. The primary concern of the cooling water
system is the flow rate. Insufficient cooling water
flow results in insufficient cooling of the electrode
and/or nozzle. The result can be catastrophic
damage to the consumables and torch body. The
reverse flow check valves prevent the cooling water
system from draining when the consumables are
removed, and prevent the system from functioning
if the cooling water hoses are connected improperly
The flow switch is calibrated to close at or above a
flow rate of 1.0 gallons per minute, and is located in
the cooling water return line so that it indicates
actual flow through the torch. The switch is wired
as an input to the CNC so that the system can be
shut down if cooling water flow falls below this
threshold.

Maintenance Procedures
6.3.1 Introduction
The following section contains maintenance
procedures for many of the systems and devices
used in the SmartFlow Plumbing Box. These
procedures are for use by qualified maintenance
personnel. These procedures are intended to give
sufficient detail to allow maintenance personnel to
maintain the system.
Electrical Shock Can Kill You! Always turn
off power to the plasma power supplies
before opening or servicing the plasma
plumbing box.
6.3.2 Gas Pressure Switch
The gas pressure switch monitors the pressure of
plasma gas supply to the plumbing box. The
switch is wired as an input to the numerical control.
Logic codes in the control look for a change of
state of the input signal, therefore the switch can
not be jumpered out of the circuit. The gas
pressure switch should be set to close at 50 PSI.
Page 34
Maintenance
SmartFlow Plasma System
To adjust the gas pressure switch:
1. Switch OFF all power to the Plasma Power
Supply.
Electrical Shock Can Kill You! Always turn
off power to the plasma power supplies
before opening or servicing the plasma
plumbing box.
2. Set a voltmeter to read 24 Volts DC. Install the
volt meter across the terminals of the gas
pressure switch, or across P3 plug, terminals 7
and 10. Refer to the schematics in this section.
The voltmeter should read 24 Volts DC when
the switch is open, 0 Volts when the switch is
closed.
3. Turn ON the Plasma Test Mode. The start gas
solenoid valve will open allowing start gas to
preflow through the torch.
4. Observe the pressure at the nitrogen supply
regulator on the plasma regulator panel.
5. Adjust the nitrogen pressure regulator until the
gauge reads 40 PSI. The pressure switch
should be open.
6. Slowly turn in the nitrogen pressure regulator
until the gauge reads 50 PSI. The switch
should close at 50 PSI.
7. Adjust the thumbwheel on the pressure switch
as necessary to make the switch close at 50
PSI.
8. Turn OFF the Plasma Test Mode.
9. Remove the volt meter from the plumbing box.
10. Readjust the nitrogen pressure regulator to 100
PSI.

4. Adjust the cut water pump pressure down to 40
PSI. The pressure switch should be closed.
5. Slowly increase the cut water pump pressure to
50 PSI. The switch should close at 50 PSI.
6. Adjust the thumbwheel on the pressure switch
as necessary to make the switch close at 50
PSI.
7. Turn OFF the Plasma Test Mode.
8. Remove the volt meter from the plumbing box.
9. Readjust the cut water pump pressure regulator
to 120 PSI.
6.3.4 Gas Regulator
The gas regulator is mounted to the output of the
manifold assembly. It regulates the gas pressure
input to the gas proportional valve. This ensures
accurate gas delivery since the proportional valve
always receives the same input pressure. The
proportional valve is rated for inputs up to 90 PSI.
Therefore, the gas regulator is adjusted to deliver
80 PSI. This regulator is factory preset and should
not be adjusted in the field, unless the regulator
must be replaced.
To set the gas regulator pressure, the plumbing box
gas output must be restricted. Use the torch
nozzle with the smallest available orifice size.
Partially plug the orifice if necessary so that only a
small amount of gas will leak. Turn out the
pressure adjusting screw on the regulator. Turn on
the cut gas and slowly turn in the pressure
adjusting screw on the regulator.
Adjust the
regulator until a pressure of 80 PSI is achieved on
the plumbing box pressure gauge. Replace the
torch nozzle.

Section 6
6.3.5 Interlock Switch
The Door Interlock Switch is mounted to the top of
the plumbing box, and is positioned to actuate
when the cover is installed. This switch has three
positions: open, closed, and defeated. When the
plumbing box cover is installed, it depresses the
switch plunger, closing the switch. When the
plumbing box cover is removed, the plunger is
released, and the switch returns to the open
position. The plunger may also be manually pulled
out, where it locks in the defeated position. In this
position the switch contacts are closed. The
defeated position should only be used during
service by qualified technicians.
Electrical Shock Can Kill You! The Door
Interlock Switch should only be defeated
by a qualified service technician. High
Voltage, High Frequency .electricity can be
generated when the Door Interlock Switch
is defeated.
The Door Interlock Switch is wired in series with the
High Frequency Arc Starter, as shown below.
When the switch is open, the 120 VAC input to the
arc starter is disconnected. When the switch is
either closed or defeated, the arc starter will
generate high frequency when the 120 VAC input is
supplied.
Page 38
Maintenance
SmartFlow Plasma System
Spark Gap
The SmartFlow plumbing box uses a high
frequency arc starter to initiate the plasma arc
within the cutting torch. The arc starter box is
mounted in the upper left hand corner of the
plumbing box, and contains an adjustable spark
gap.
The spark gap forms one component of an L-C
tank circuit. A capacitor discharges across the
spark gap to create a high frequency signal which is
then coupled to the torch nozzle through the pilot
arc cable.
The spark gap setting is a compromise between
reliable firing and high frequency electrical noise.
As the spark gap setting is increased, more energy
is coupled to the torch, which results in more
reliable firing, and creates more high frequency
noise. As the spark gap setting is decreased, less
electrical noise is generated, but a point may be
reached where the torch will not fire reliably. The
spark gap in the SmartFlow plumbing box should
be adjusted to .060 inches.
Adjustment Procedure
Electrical Shock Can Kill You! Always turn
off power to the plasma power supplies
before opening or servicing the plasma
plumbing box.
1. Remove the cover from the plumbing box.
2. Remove the cover from the arc starter box.
3. Use a feeler gauge to measure the spark gap
setting.
4. If adjustment is required, loosen the locknut on
one of the spark gap electrodes.
5. Turn the hex head on the electrode as
necessary to increase or decrease the spark
gap, then lock in place with the lock nut.

Section 6
6.3.6 Cut Water Pressure
The cut water system uses a carbonator pump with
bypass type pressure regulation to supply high
pressure water to the plumbing box. This pump
requires at least 25 PSI input to prevent cavitating,
and should be adjusted to deliver 120 PSI output.
Output pressure is adjusted by turning the pressure
adjusting screw on the pump body, which is
located beneath an acorn nut.
Adjustment Procedure
1. Remove the acorn nut with an adjustable
wrench.
2. Turn ON the Plasma Test Mode. The cut water
pump will energize, and the cut water solenoid
will open, allowing cut water to preflow through
the torch.
3. Using a screwdriver, turn the pressure adjusting
screw until the pressure gauge reads 120 PSI.
4. Reinstall the acorn nut, then recheck the
pressure setting.
5. Turn OFF the Plasma Test Mode.

SmartFlow Plasma System
6.3.7 Gas Filters
The nitrogen and oxygen gas supplies must be
filtered before entering the plumbing box. When
using a PT-19XL with secondary shield, the air
supply must also be filtered. Check these filters
regularly and replace the filter element when
necessary. Unfiltered gas supplied to the plumbing
box will result in clogging of the proportional valves
or other plumbing box components.
The gas filters should be installed in the gas supply
lines prior to the Gas Regulator Panel, as shown
below. Use a 5 micron filter.
6.3.8 Gas Proportional Valve
The gas proportional valve controls the flow of gas
to the plasma torch. The same valve is used to
regulate both start gas and cut gas. The Vision
CNC outputs an analog DC voltage signal between
0 and 10 volts representing the desired gas flow
rate. The proportional valve is fully open for a signal
of 10 volts, fully closed at 0 volts.
The gas proportional valve contains no user
servicable parts. In case of failure, the valve should
be replaced or returned to ESAB for repair.
Maintenance
Page 41
Section 6
6.3.9 Water Proportional Valve
When the SmartFlow plumbing box is used with a
PT-15XL torch, the water proportional valve
controls the flow of cut water.
When the
SmartFlow plumbing box is used in conjunction
with a PT-19XL torch, the water proportional valve
may be used ton control shield air. The Vision CNC
outputs an analog DC voltage signal between 0 and
10 volts representing the desired water flow rate.
The proportional valve is fully open for a signal of 10
volts, fully closed at 0 volts.
The water proportional valve contains no user
servicable parts. In case of failure, the valve should
be replaced or returned to ESAB for repair.
6.3.10 Cooling Water Flow Switch
The cooling water circuit uses a 1.0 gallon per
minute flow switch to monitor cooling water flow.
This flow switch is located in the cooling water
return line, so that it indicates actual flow through
the torch. The flow switch is wired as an input to
the numerical, which looks for a change of state of
the input signal when the plasma station is turned
on. Therefore the switch input cannot be jumpered
out of the circuit.
Cooling water flow problems may fall into one of the
following categories:
1. Insufficient flow due to a restriction in the
cooling water circuit.
If a cooling water flow restriction is traced to the
flow switch, the switch may be disassembled
and cleaned, or it may be replaced.
2. Sufficient flow but no flow switch closure.
If measurement of the actual cooling water flow
rate indicates more than 1.0 gallons per minute,
but the flow switch does not close, then the
switch may be damaged or clogged.
If
disassembly and cleaning does not remedy the
situation, then the switch must be replaced.

Troubleshooting
The following error messages are associated with
the SmartFlow Plasma System, and will appear on
screen at the Vision CNC.
PLASMA STATION n CUT WATER PRESSURE
This error is generated if the Cut Water Pressure
switch input is in the wrong state. When controlling
a PT-19XL torch’s secondary shield, the Cut Water
Pressure switch monitors shield air pressure.
The CNC watches this input for a change of state,
from the off condition to the on condition when the
cut water solenoid valve is energized. An error is
generated if the input is on when it should be off, or
if the input is off when it should be on.
If this error message appears, check the following:
1. Check the cut water pump, it should be
adjusted to deliver 120 PSI when pumping.
2. Check the appropriate BITI at the Vision CNC.
It should turn on and off with the cut water.
PLASMA STATION n CUT GAS PRESSURE
This error is generated if the Cut Gas Pressure
switch input is in the wrong state. This pressure
switch is actuated by start gas during the start gas
sequence, then by cut gas during cutting.
The CNC watches this input for a change of state,
from the off condition to the on condition when one
of the gas solenoid valves is energized. An error is
generated if the input is on when it should be off, or
if the input is off when it should be on.
If this error message appears, check the following:
1. Check the Nitrogen and Oxygen supply
pressures at the regulator panel. They should
be adjusted to deliver 120 PSI to the plumbing
box.
2. Check the appropriate EPEP at the Vision CNC.
It should turn on and off with the gas flow.
Maintenance
Page 47
Section 6
PLASMA STATION n COOLING WATER FLOW
This error is generated when the Cooling Water
Flow Switch input is in the wrong state. The
Cooling Water Flow Switch is in the return line of
the cooling water circuit, and is calibrated to close
at or above 1.0 gallons per minute of flow.
The CNC watches this input for a change of state
from the off condition to the on condition when the
plasma station is turned on. An error is generated if
the input is on when it should be off, or if the input
is off when it should be on.
If this error message appears, check the following:
1. Make sure the Water Cooler is turned on.
2. Check the cooling water recirculator pump. It
should be adjusted to deliver 150 PSI.
3. Check the plasma consumables.
PLASMA STATION n DID NOT FIRE
This error is generated all inputs from the plumbing
box are correct, but the torch still does not fire.
The CNC monitors the Arc On input from the
plasma power supply to determine if the arc has
transferred.
If the CNC completes a firing
sequence, including energizing the high freq. arc
starter, but does not receive an Arc On input, then
this message is generated.
If this error message appears, check the following:
1. Check the torch consumables for wear or
damage.
2. Open the spark gap cover on the High Freq.
Arc Starter and observe the spark gap while
firing the torch. Verify that a spark is being
generated in the spark gap. Make sure that the
interlock switch in the plumbing box is pulled
out, in the bypass position.
