OPERATION
General safety regulations for handling of the equipment can be found on
page 4. Read through before you start using the equipment!
WARNING
If the switch under the upper, hinged cover has tripped, dangerous voltage may
exist between the return cable and earth. This is usually caused by poor or broken
contact between the return cable and the workpiece. The return cable must always
be in electrical contact with the workpiece, otherwise there is a risk of dangerous
electric shock.
WARNING
Always ensure that the power supply to the torch is off before performing any
adjustments or maintenance on the torch.
CAUTION
Do NOT start the power source under any circumstances with the cover removed.
Operating without a cover does not just cause personal safety risks but also reduces
cooling and can therefore damage the equipment.
The side panels must be closed when the equipment is powered.
Wear appropriate personal protective equipment before you begin cutting - welding helmet
and gloves must always be worn.
See page 2 for further safety information.
CAUTION
The main switch in the hinged cover is powered when the voltage is input to the terminal
board, even when the main POWER switch is off.
This chapter describes the power source control device and handling and gives
some tips on cutting quality.

Indicator lamps
'
OVER TEMP
Indicator lamp for overheating, comes on if one or more of the thermal
cut-outs in the power source breaks due to overheating. The lamp can
illuminate weakly during gas after flow.
Stop cutting if the lamp illuminates, and let the equipment cool. If the
lamp illuminates despite the fact that overheating could not occur,
examine the thermal cut-outs and check for loose connections.
READY/LOW GAS
The lamp indicates that the equipment is ready for operation, but also
serves as an indicator for the torch's trigger, for the gas mode switch as
well as a warning indicator for low gas pressure or low gas flow. The lamp
illuminates when the mains voltage switch is on but not used (cutting not in
progress). The lamp stays on when the gas mode switch is set to CUT
mode, even when the gas flow or pressure is correctly set. The lamp does
not go out when the gas mode switch is set to OPERATE mode (the gas
solenoid valves close).
In OPERATE mode, the lamp acts as a warning lamp for LOW GAS. If the lamp
illuminates whilst the torch's trigger is pressed, the gas pressure or gas flow is too
low.
- 18 bp04de2
© ESAB AB 2010
GB
HIGH FREQ ENERGIZED
The lamp illuminates when the equipment is in OPERATE mode and
the torch's trigger is pressed. The lamp should remain lit until the
plasma arc is lit.
TORCH ON
The lamp is lit when the power source sends out voltage to light and
maintain the plasma arc.
NOTE! Never touch the front parts and do not perform any torch
adjustments if the TORCH ON lamp is lit, even if the main switch is off.
5.2
Setting the power source
1. Open all gas valves slowly.
2. Set the gas mode switch to GAS MODE in OPERATE mode and the power
source mains voltage switch to POWER in OFF mode.
3. Set the switch (wall socket or similar) to on.
4. Set the mains voltage switch POWER to ON. The indicator lamp POWER must
illuminate and the cooling fan must run.
5. When the gas mode switch GAS MODE is in START/SHIELD mode, the gas
solenoid valves must be open. Set the start respectively shielding gas regulator .
Set the switch to CUT mode and set the cutting gas regulator.
6. Allow the gases to flow a few minutes to blow out ant condensation from the
hoses.
7. Set the gas mode switch GAS MODE to OPERATE mode. The gas flow should
then be switched off.
8. Set the CURRENT CONTROL knob to the desired current.

Spark gap adjustment
The spark gap, that is part of the high frequency generator, has a default setting of
0.635 +/- 0.002 mm. After long periods of operation, or if a malfunction is observed,
the electrodes may need to be adjusted or replaced. Adjust the spark gap using a
feeler gauge. The spark gap electrodes should not be cleaned or trimmed. Always
replace both electrodes at the same time.
