Spirit II User’s Manual
Section 1: Safety
Section 1: Safety
General Precautions
Whereas plasma cutting has been used safely for years, it does require certain
precautions to ensure the safety of the operator and other people around the
equipment. The following safety information must be provided to each person who will
operate, observe, perform maintenance, or work in close proximity to this piece of
equipment. Always wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).
Installation, operation, and repairs made to the Spirit system should only be performed
by qualified personnel. The system makes use of both A.C. and D.C. circuitry for
operation. Fatal shock hazard does exist. Exercise extreme caution while working
on the system.
Ultraviolet Radiation Protection
Plasma cutting produces ultraviolet radiation similar to a welding arc. This ultraviolet
radiation can cause skin and eye burns. For this reason, it is essential that proper
protection be worn. The eyes are best protected by using safety glasses or a welding
helmet with an AWS No. 12 shade or ISO 4850 No. 13 shade, which provides protection
up to 400 amperes. All exposed skin areas should be covered with flame-retardant
clothing. The cutting area should also be prepared in such a way that ultraviolet light
does not reflect. Walls and other surfaces should be painted with dark colors to reduce
reflected light. Protective screens or curtains should be installed to protect additional
workers in the area from ultraviolet radiation.
Noise Protection
The system generates high noise levels while cutting. Depending on the size of the
cutting area, distance from the cutting torch, and arc current cutting level, acceptable
noise levels may be exceeded. Proper ear protection should be used as defined by
local or national codes. See Section 2 for noise emission levels.
This information is subject to the controls of the Export Administration Regulations [EAR]. This information shall not be provided to
non-U.S. persons or transferred by any means to any location outside the United States contrary to the requirements of the EAR.

Section 1: Safety
Spirit II User’s Manual
Toxic Fume Prevention
Care should be taken to ensure adequate ventilation in the cutting area. Some
materials give off toxic fumes that can be harmful or fatal to people in the vicinity of the
cutting area. Also, some solvents decompose and form harmful gases when exposed
to ultraviolet radiation. These solvents should be removed from the area prior to cutting.
Galvanized metal can produce harmful gases during the cutting process. Ensure proper
ventilation and use breathing equipment when cutting these materials.
Certain metals coated with or containing lead, cadmium, zinc, beryllium, and mercury
produce harmful toxins. Do not cut these metals unless all people subjected to the
fumes wear proper air breathing equipment.
Electric Shock Prevention
The Spirit system uses high open circuit voltages that can be fatal. Extreme care
should be used when operating or performing maintenance on the system. Only
qualified personnel should service the system. Observe the following guidelines to
protect against electric shock:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
A wall-mounted disconnect switch should be installed and fused according to local
and national electrical codes. The disconnect switch should be located as close as
possible to the power supply so it can be turned off in case of an emergency.
The primary power cord should have a 600 volt minimum rating in order to protect
the operator. In addition, it should be sized according to local and national electrical
codes. Inspect the primary power cord frequently. Never operate the system if the
power cord is damaged in any way.
Make sure the primary power ground wire is connected to the input power ground
stud on the power supply. Make sure the connection is securely tightened.
Make sure the positive output (work ground) of the power supply is connected to a
bare metal area on the cutting table. A driven ground rod should be placed no
further than five feet from this connection. Make sure this ground point on the
cutting table is used as the star ground point for all other ground connections.
Inspect the torch leads frequently. Never use the system if the leads are damaged
in any way.
Do not stand in wet, damp areas when operating or performing maintenance on the
system.
Wear insulated gloves and shoes while operating or performing maintenance on the
system.
Make sure the system is switched off at the wall disconnect before servicing the
power supply or torch.
This information is subject to the controls of the Export Administration Regulations [EAR]. This information shall not be provided to
non-U.S. persons or transferred by any means to any location outside the United States contrary to the requirements of the EAR.

Section 1: Safety
Never change torch consumable parts unless the system is switched off at the wall
disconnect.
Do not attempt to remove any parts from beneath the torch when cutting.
Remember that the workpiece forms the current path back to the power supply.
Never bypass the safety interlock devices.
Before removing any of the covers, switch the system off at the wall disconnect.
Wait at least five (5) minutes before removing any cover. This will give the
capacitors inside the unit time to discharge. See Section 6 for additional safety
precautions.
Never operate the system without all of the covers in place. See Section 6 for
additional safety precautions.
Preventive maintenance should be performed daily to avoid possible safety hazards.
Fire Prevention
When using the Spirit system, it is necessary to exercise good judgment. While cutting,
the arc produces sparks that could cause a fire if they fall on flammable materials.
Make sure that all flammable materials are a suitable distance away from the cutting
area. All flammable liquids should be at least 40 feet away from the cutting area,
preferably stored in a metal cabinet. Plasma cutting should never be attempted on
containers that contain flammable materials. Make sure that fire extinguishers are
readily accessible in the cutting area.
Make sure that the cutting area is properly ventilated when using oxygen as a cutting
gas.
Explosion Prevention
The Spirit system uses compressed gases. Use proper techniques when handling
compressed gas cylinders and other compressed gas equipment. Observe the
following guidelines to protect against explosion:
•
•
•
•
Never operate the system in the presence of explosive gases or other explosive
materials.
Never cut pressurized cylinders or any closed container.
When using a water table and cutting aluminum under water or with water touching
the underside of the aluminum plate, hydrogen gas is produced. This hydrogen gas
may collect under the plate and explode during the cutting process. Make sure the
water table is properly aerated to help prevent the accumulation of hydrogen gas.
Handle all gas cylinders in accordance with safety standards published by the U.S.
Compressed Gas Association (CGA), American Welding Society (AWS), Canadian
Standards Association (CSA), or other local or national codes.

Section 2: Specifications
System Description
The Spirit II 275 is a 275 amp microprocessor controlled, 100% duty cycle high current
density plasma cutting and marking system. It utilizes a precision, dual gas torch that is
capable of cutting mild steel up to 2" thick and stainless steel up to 1-1/2” thick.
The system contains a computer controlled automatic gas console with a touch screen
interface (plasma console). All cutting parameters are controlled through the plasma
console. Setting up a cut is as simple as selecting the material type, material thickness,
and process (cutting or marking). All gas types and pressures are set automatically.
The operator can easily view pictures and part numbers of the torch consumables.
Another screen shows the recommended cutting speed and torch height for making the
cut. These parameters can be transmitted to an X/Y machine controller or an arc
voltage control system via RS-422 serial communication. The RS-422 port also allows
for full control of the cutting parameters from an x/y machine controller. The system
keeps a detailed record of errors that may have occurred during the cutting sequence.
Additionally, systems utilizing the automatic gas console can use argon for marking,
which produces improved mark quality.
The Spirit II system is available with an Arc Starting Console (ASC) that utilizes
CleanStrike™ technology, which results in reduced EMI and thereby minimizes
interference with sensitive electronic equipment.
For cutting mild steel, the system uses oxygen for the plasma gas and either oxygen or
air for the shielding gas. When cutting stainless steel or other non-ferrous materials, air
or H17 (17.5% hydrogen, 32.5% argon, 50% nitrogen) is used for the plasma gas and
either air or nitrogen is used for the shielding gas. Oxygen and nitrogen are used for
the preflow and postflow gases.
The torch is water-cooled and consumables are machined to exacting dimensions and
checked with the latest computerized measuring systems. Eight nozzle sizes (30, 50,
70, 100, 150, 200, 260, and 275 amps) are available to produce excellent cut quality
throughout the cutting range.
Each enclosure in the system is rated for IP21S sealing, which is intended for
indoor use only. The system is not suitable for use in rain or snow.
Systems containing an ASC with CleanStrike™ Technology are only
recommended for use with downdraft cutting tables.

Torch Coolant Specifications
Note: Refer to the supplier’s most current Material Safety Data Sheet for
information regarding safety, handling, and storage of torch coolant.
The Spirit system is shipped without torch coolant in the reservoir. Coolant
must be added before applying power to the system. Only use approved
torch coolant solution for optimal system performance as commercially available
antifreeze contains corrosion inhibitors that will damage the cooling system. The
standard coolant solution consists of 25% industrial grade propylene glycol and
provides freezing protection down to -13º C (9º F). The standard solution can be
ordered in one-gallon containers, PN BK500695. For operating temperatures
below -13º C, a 50% solution of industrial grade propylene glycol can be ordered
in one-gallon containers, PN BK500895, providing protection down to -36º C
(-33º F).
Failure to use the proper propylene glycol solution may result in cooling
system and/or torch damage.
The torch coolant should be flushed out of the Spirit system every six months
and replaced with new coolant. The coolant filter / deionization cartridge should
also be changed at the same time. See Section 6 for details.

A potential fire hazard exists when cutting with oxygen. It is recommended that
an exhaust ventilation system be used when cutting with oxygen. Flashback
arrestors must be supplied (unless they are not available for the chosen gases
and pressures) to prevent a possible fire from propagating back to the gas
supplies.
Ensure that oxygen lines remain free from contaminants such as oil and grease. The
mixture of such contaminants with oxygen presents an additional fire hazard.
Compressed air must be clean, dry, and oil-free and may be supplied from compressed
cylinders or from an air compressor. Be aware that shop air systems are prone to oil
and moisture contamination. If shop air is used, it must be cleaned to ISO 8573.1:
Class 1.4.1. Specify dry air when using compressed cylinders. Breathing quality air
contains moisture and must not be used.
3/8” (inside diameter) hoses are required for all inlet gas connections. Mating
connectors are available as an option. Quick-connect fittings must not be used.

Initial Inspection
All systems undergo full testing before being shipped from the factory. In the unlikely
event that one of the components is defective or missing, please contact customer
service so that a replacement can be sent. Also, special care has been taken in the
packaging of the system. If the system was damaged during shipment, file a claim with
the shipping company, and then contact customer service to order the necessary parts.
Component Placement
Plasma Power Supply
The power supply should be lifted by a forklift or pallet jack. In order to prevent
damaging the power supply, the forks should be of adequate length to protrude on the
far side of the power supply. The proper location of the power supply will provide
dependable service and reduce periodic maintenance time. Choose a location that will
provide unrestricted air movement into and out of the power supply. Maintain at least
24 inches of space on all sides of the unit. The location should subject the power
supply to the least amount of dust, dirt, moisture, and corrosive vapors. The surface on
which the power supply is located should have a grade of no greater than 10º to
eliminate the risk of toppling over. The power supply must be cleaned as often as
necessary to prevent the accumulation of metallic dust inside the unit. See Section 2
for unit dimensions.
Automatic Gas Console (AGC)
The AGC is usually mounted on the gantry of the cutting machine. See Section 2 for
mounting dimensions.
Plasma Console
The plasma console should be mounted near the CNC controller so that it is easily
accessible by the operator. See Section 2 for mounting dimensions.
Arc Starting Console (ASC)
The ASC should be mounted in a convenient location that is away from other electronic
control devices. The ASC with CleanStrike™ Technology offers significantly reduced
emissions compared to ASC with RHF, however, the high voltage pulse generated
inside the unit may interfere with the operation of sensitive control electronics. The ASC
is usually mounted on the gantry of the cutting machine or on the cutting table. See
Section 2 for mounting dimensions.
5-Gang Manifold
The 5-gang manifold assembly must be mounted within 6 feet (1.8 m) of the torch. See
Section 2 for mounting dimensions.

Section 3: Installation
Radio Frequency (RF) and
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)
Overview
This section describes the proper grounding of the Spirit II Plasma System components
to minimize Radio Frequency (RF) and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI).
The Arc Starting Console (ASC), by nature of its function in the system, is a source of
RF/EMI along with other system components such as drive amplifiers. If proper
grounding techniques are not employed during system installation, RF/EMI can couple
into other components causing system malfunction and/or component failure. While this
section outlines best practices for grounding, this does not guarantee system immunity.
These guidelines should be the basis for initial installation and modifications made as
necessary to achieve complete immunity.
Types of Grounds
There are three different types of grounds in a plasma system.
1. Service or Protective Earth (PE) ground. This is the ground associated with the
mains power supplied to the system. The purpose is to prevent a shock hazard with
respect to the plasma equipment and work table. It represents the service ground
connected to the plasma power supply and all other system components such as
drive amplifiers and CNC. The PE or Service ground must be connected to each
piece of equipment per local and national codes.
2. DC power ground. This is the work lead of the power supply and is connected to the
cutting table to complete the electrical path for the cutting current.
3. RF/EMI ground. This is the ground for limiting RF/EMI noise in the system. This is
the ground that this section addresses.
RF/EMI Grounding Rules
1. The cutting table is used as the common star grounding point. All RF/EMI grounds
should terminate at this point. The star ground connection to the table should have
welded studs to the table with a copper bus bar mounted to them. All hardware
used for ground connections should be copper or brass with exception of the studs
welded to the table.
2. A ground rod that meets all applicable local and national electrical codes must be
installed within 20 ft. of the star ground point. This is the PE ground and should be
connected to the star ground with a minimum of a 6 AWG green/yellow cable.
3. The work, electrode and pilot arc leads from the power supply should be bundled
together for as long a distance as possible and segregated from control leads.
Ideally the power and control leads should run in separate cable tracks – if not, a
minimum separation of 6 in. is recommended.
This information is subject to the controls of the Export Administration Regulations [EAR]. This information shall not be provided to
non-U.S. persons or transferred by any means to any location outside the United States contrary to the requirements of the EAR.
3-7
Section 3: Installation
Spirit II User’s Manual
4. The braided shield on the torch leads must be electrically connected to the ASC
console and to the torch handle. The length of the braid must be insulated from any
metal contact or contact with the floor. The braid can be insulated with a plastic or
leather sheath or run in a plastic track.
5. Each plasma system component as well as any other related equipment (CNC,
motor drives) must have a separate ground connection to the star ground point even
if bolted to the gantry or power supply. Grounds are not to be daisy-chained.
6. For components mounted to the cutting table gantry, it is acceptable to create a star
ground at the gantry with a single ground cable connecting the gantry star ground
with the cutting table star ground. The exception is the Arc Starting Console – this
should always have a separate ground cable connected directly to the cutting table
star ground.

Power Supply Primary Power Connections
** Before connecting primary power, check the data plate
on the power supply to verify the voltage required **
A primary disconnect switch, switching all ungrounded supply conductors, should be
provided for each Spirit system. The disconnect switch should be located as close as
possible to the power supply so it can be turned off quickly in case of an emergency.
The disconnect switch must be equipped with time delay fuses only. The magnetic
inrush current of the power supply can be up to 30 times the steady state load current
for 0.01 seconds and up to 12 times for 0.1 sec. With non-delay fuses, the fuse will
clear due to the inrush current. The same applies for circuit breakers which have an
instantaneous magnetic trip. Use of a motor-start circuit breaker or equivalent is
recommended if time delay fuses are not used or allowed by local or national codes.
The main feed device (breaker or fuse) and any branch protection (breaker or
fuse) upstream of the power supply must be sized to handle all branch loads for
both steady state and inrush current.
The disconnect switch should be sized according to local and national codes. The
rating must meet or exceed the continuous rating of the fuses used. See the following
chart for recommended fuse sizes:

CNC Machine Interface Connections
Perform the following steps to properly interface the Spirit system with a CNC cutting
machine. See the system schematic for additional information.
Plasma Start Input
The power supply requires a contact closure between P8 pins 3 and 4 to commence the
cutting or marking sequence. The sequence is terminated when the contacts are
opened. The contacts should be rated for 24VDC - 7.3mA.
Plasma Cut/Mark Input
The power supply requires a contact closure between P8 pins 1 and 2 to put the system
in plasma marking mode. Opening the contacts puts the system in cutting mode. The
operating mode should be selected prior to applying a start signal. The contacts should
be rated for 24VDC - 7.3mA.
Arc Hold Input
The power supply requires a contact closure between P8 pins 10 and 11 to inhibit arc
starting even though a plasma start signal has been applied to the unit. When the
contacts are opened, the arc is initiated. This feature is used to decrease cycle time by
allowing pre-cut gas and contact sequencing to occur simultaneously with initial torch
height positioning. The contacts should be rated for 24VDC - 7.3mA.
Motion Output
The power supply provides a maintained contact closure output between P8 pins 12
and 14 as long as an arc is maintained between the torch and the workpiece. The
motion contacts are rated for 24VDC – 10mA.
Remote On/Off Input
The power supply requires a maintained contact closure between P8 pins 5 and 6 to
energize the system from a remote location, provided that the OFF Button on the
plasma console is released. The contacts should be rated for 24VAC – 10mA.
Opening the contacts deenergizes the system. If the remote on/off feature is to be
used, remove the jumper between positions 1 and 2 on the J17 connector on the
microprocessor DSP board.
Power Supply Ready Output
The power supply provides a maintained contact closure output between P8 pins 7 and
8 when the system is ready to cut or mark. The contacts are open during gas purge or
when an error occurs. The contacts are rated for 24VDC – 10mA.
RS-422 Serial Communication Link
An RS-422 serial communication link can be connected between the plug on the rear of
the plasma console and a CNC machine or automatic height control system. All
process parameters can be controlled via the RS-422 communication link. Also, cutting
or marking information such as initial height, cutting or marking height, recommended
arc voltage, and recommended travel speed can be transmitted from the plasma
console to the CNC machine or height control. See Appendix B for additional serial
communication information.

Piercing Thick Materials
Care must be taken when piercing thick materials in order to prevent damage to the
shield cap and nozzle. As with all thicknesses, the pierce height must be set high
enough so the metal ejected while piercing does not come into contact with the shield
cap. Also, some of the material ejected during the pierce may adhere to the top side of
the plate and form a ring of solidified material around the pierce point.
Action must be taken so the torch does not move from the pierce height down to the
cutting height and come into contact with this solidified metal. The torch should not
move from the pierce height down to the cutting height until the X/Y controller has
moved the torch away from the pierce point.
One way to accomplish this may be to program the pierce time on the torch height
control system to a value that is longer than the X/Y controller motion delay time.
Moving Pierces and Edge Starts
On very thick materials, an edge start or moving pierce may be required to prevent
damage to the torch consumables.
With a moving pierce, the X/Y machine should begin moving at approximately 5–10
inches/minute (125–250 mm/min) as soon as the arc transfers to the plate. After the arc
completely penetrates the plate, the torch should be positioned at the proper cutting
height and the X/Y machine speed should be increased to the correct level.
With an edge start – the edge start required icon (
) will appear at the top of the
screen – the torch should be positioned at the edge of the material prior to starting the
arc.

Spirit II User’s Manual
Section 4: Operation with Automatic Gas Console
Cut Quality
Before the optimum cutting condition can be achieved on a particular material type and
thickness, the machine operator must have a thorough understanding of the cutting
characteristics of the Spirit system. When the cut quality is not satisfactory, the cutting
speed, torch height, or gas pressures may need to be adjusted in small increments until
the proper cutting condition is obtained. The following guidelines should be useful in
determining which cutting parameter to adjust.
Note: Before making any parameter changes, verify that the torch is square to
the workpiece. Also, it is essential to have the correct torch parts in place and to
ensure that they are in good condition. Check the electrode for excessive wear
and the nozzle and shield cap orifices for roundness. Also, check the parts for
any dents or distortions. Irregularities in the torch parts can cause cut quality
problems.
1. A positive cut angle (top dimension of piece smaller than the bottom dimension)
usually occurs when the torch standoff distance is too high, when cutting too fast, or
when excessive power is used to cut a given plate thickness.
2. A negative cut angle (top dimension of piece larger than the bottom dimension)
usually occurs when the torch standoff distance is too low or when the cutting speed
is too slow.
3. Top dross usually occurs when the torch standoff distance is too high.
4. Bottom dross usually occurs when the cutting speed is either too slow (slow-speed
dross) or too fast (high-speed dross). Low-speed dross is easily removed, while
high-speed dross usually requires grinding or chipping off. When using oxygen as
the shielding gas, bottom dross can sometimes be removed by increasing the shield
gas pressure. However, increasing the shield pressure too much can cause cut face
irregularities (see below). Bottom dross also occurs more frequently as the metal
heats up. As more pieces are cut out of a particular plate, the more likely they are to
form dross.
5. When using oxygen as a shielding gas, cut face irregularities usually indicate that
the shield gas pressure is too high or the torch standoff distance is too low.
6. A concave cut face usually indicates that the torch standoff distance is too low or the
shield gas pressure is too high. A convex cut face usually indicates that the torch
standoff distance is too high or the shield gas pressure is too low.
7. Note that different material compositions have an effect on dross formation.
8. If the material is not being completely severed, the likely causes are that the cutting
current is too low, the travel speed is too high, the gas pressures are incorrect, the
incorrect gas types are selected, the incorrect consumables are installed in the
torch, or the consumables are worn.

When any of the following errors occur, measures should be taken to avoid further
errors. The following is a description of the errors and possible causes:
• Transferred arc not established
This error occurs when the arc fails to transfer to the workpiece. It primarily causes
nozzle damage and is typically due to a pierce height that is too high.
•
•
Transferred arc lost before upslope
This error occurs when the arc transfers to the workpiece but is lost immediately. It
primarily causes nozzle damage and is typically due to a pierce height that is too
high.
Transferred arc lost during upslope
This error occurs when the arc transfers to the workpiece but is lost before steady
state operation. It primarily causes electrode damage and is typically due to a pierce
time that is too long or when cutting a given thickness with excessive current.
•
Transferred arc lost during cut
This error occurs when the arc is lost during steady state operation. It substantially
shortens the electrode life and is typically due to a torch standoff distance that is too
high or a travel speed that is to slow.
•
Transferred arc lost during downslope
This error occurs when the arc is lost after a stop signal is received but before the
current downslope completes. It substantially shortens the electrode life and is
typically due to an incorrect lead-out or when cutting a given material thickness with
excessive current. When cutting small pieces that tend to drop into the table after
being cut, there should be a very short lead out or none at all. On thicker materials,
the arc is sometimes lost when crossing the kerf during the lead out. It is critical
that the lead-outs be fine-tuned so the arc is not lost before downslope is
complete.

Installing / Removing the Torch Head
DANGER!
Electric Shock Can Kill.
• Remove primary power from the Spirit system before installing or
removing the torch head.
WARNING!
Hot Parts Can Burn Skin.
• Do not touch hot parts bare handed.
• Always use gloves when handling the torch as it can be hot after
•
cutting, especially with high amperages and long cut times.
Allow cooling period before working on the torch.
1. Each time the torch head is connected to the torch base, use a cotton swab to apply
a small amount of o-ring lubricant on each of the seven o-rings on the top of the
torch head. Reminder: do not use an excessive amount of o-ring lubricant.
2. Align the indicator on the torch head (circle) with the one on the torch base (slot).
3. Apply enough upward force to engage the threads while tightening the attachment
ring. Turn the attachment ring to the RIGHT to tighten.
4. Keep tightening the attachment ring until it stops. There should be no gap between
the attachment ring and the o-ring on the torch base.
During this process, a small amount of coolant will collect in the torch head.
It is normal for this coolant to discharge between the o-ring on the torch base and
the attachment ring while the system is being pressurized. If coolant continues to
discharge after the system is pressurized, turn off the plasma power supply, remove
the torch head and inspect the o-rings for damage.

WARNING!
Hot Parts Can Burn Skin.
• Do not touch hot parts bare handed.
• Always use gloves when handling the torch as it can be hot after
•
cutting, especially with high amperages and long cut times.
Allow cooling period before working on the torch.
Note: When installing the consumables, do not use an excessive amount
of o-ring lubricant. Also ensure that the lubricant is placed only on the
o-rings. Excess lubricant can interfere with gas flow, which can cause
starting problems, poor cut quality, and short consumable life.
1. Unthread the torch head from the torch base by turning the attachment ring to
the LEFT. Verify the torch base doesn't unthread from the torch handle.
2. Remove the outer retaining cap from the torch head.
3. Remove the inner retaining cap from the torch head.
4. Separate the shield cap from either the inner retaining cap or the outer
retaining cap.
5. Use the nozzle removal tool (P/N BK277056) to remove the nozzle from the
torch head. To do this, insert the tool into the groove on the nozzle and hold
the tool/nozzle in the palm of your hand. Pull both hands apart using a linear
motion as shown in the left image below. Do not use a prying or bending
motion as shown in the right image below.

Section 5: Torch Consumables and Cutting Charts
Maximizing Consumable Life
Use the following guidelines to maximize consumable parts life:
1. The Spirit system utilizes the latest advancement in technology for extending the life
of the torch consumable parts. To maximize the life of the consumable parts, it is
imperative that the shutdown procedure of the arc is carried out properly. The arc
must be extinguished while it is still attached to the workpiece. A popping
noise may be heard if the arc extinguishes abnormally. Note that holes are usually
programmed without lead-outs to prevent loss of the arc during shutdown. There is
a time delay between the reception of a stop signal and when the arc is
extinguished. During this time, the gases and cutting current are changed to
optimum values for extinguishing the arc. Ideally, the x/y machine controller should
provide a plasma stop signal prior to the end of the cut path so the gases and
current reach the shut off values at the same time that the part has been completely
cut. The shut down times are different for each current and are given below.
Arc Shutdown Times
Current (A)
Time (ms)
30

2. Use the recommended pierce height given in the cutting charts. A pierce height that
is too low will allow molten metal that is ejected during the piercing process to
damage the shield cap and nozzle. A pierce height that is too high will cause the
pilot arc time to be excessively long and will cause nozzle damage. See “Piercing
Thick Materials” in Section 4.
3. Never fire the torch in the air. Nozzle damage will occur.
4. Make sure the torch does not touch the plate while cutting. Shield cap and nozzle
damage will result.
5. Use a chain cut when possible. Starting and stopping the torch is more detrimental
to the consumables than making a continuous cut.
6. Always use error tracking on the plasma console to keep track of cut errors. See
Section 4 for information on error tracking.

Cutting Charts
The cutting charts shown on the following pages are intended to give the
operator the best starting point to use when making a cut on a particular material
type and thickness. Small adjustments may have to be made to achieve the best
cut. Also, remember that the arc voltage must be increased as the electrode
wears in order to maintain the correct cutting height.

Section 6: Maintenance & Troubleshooting
WARNING: Only qualified maintenance personnel should perform
maintenance on the Spirit system.
The system utilizes potentially fatal A.C. and D.C. voltages. All maintenance
should be performed with safety in mind.
Use extreme caution when working near the power conversion module (i.e.,
chopper). The large electrolytic capacitors store large amounts of energy
even after power has been removed from the system. Wait at least five
minutes after turning off power, and then use a voltmeter to verify that the
capacitors are fully discharged before touching the power conversion module.
Capacitor failure can injure and/or cause property damage.
If troubleshooting requires the system to be powered with the enclosure
panels removed, remain clear of the capacitors. Failure of a capacitor can
result in a sudden release of stored energy causing rupture of the capacitor
case.
Routine Maintenance
Note: At minimum, these checks should be performed on a monthly basis. In
excessively dirty environments or in heavy usage situations, the checks
should be performed more frequently.
Power Supply
1. Remove the left, right, and top covers on the power supply.
2. Using clean, dry, compressed air (30 psi maximum), blow out all accumulated dust,
including dust on PC boards and fans. Be sure to blow out the fan and heat
exchanger at the rear of the unit. In an excessively dirty environment, blow out the
unit on a weekly basis.
3. Verify the ground and primary three phase A.C. voltage connections are tight.
4. Verify all PC board connectors are installed securely.
5. Verify all rear cable connectors are installed securely.
6. Verify the electrode lead and work ground lead are secure and free from corrosion.
7. Check the torch coolant filter / deionization cartridge at the rear of the power supply
and replace if dirty.
8. Flush the cooling system every six months and replace the coolant and coolant filter
/ deionization cartridge.

Automatic Gas Console (AGC)
1. Remove the cover of the automatic gas console. Using clean, dry, compressed air
(30 psi maximum), blow out all accumulated dust inside the unit. In an excessively
dirty environment, blow out the unit on a weekly basis.
2. Verify that all PC board connectors are installed securely.
3. Verify that all gas hose connectors are tight and that there are no leaks. Only
tighten the gas fittings enough to make a gas seal. The fittings are subject to
damage if over tightened.
4. Inspect all gas hoses to ensure no damage exists.
damaged gas hoses.
Immediately replace any
5. Drain the coalescing filter bowl as needed and replace the filter element as needed.
6. Replace the 90 micron filter as needed. During replacement, torque the connection
between the filter and coupling to 225 in-lbs.
Plasma Console
1. No maintenance is required on the inside of the plasma console.
2. With primary power removed from the Spirit system, clean the touch screen as
necessary with a soft clean cloth and a cleaner approved for television or computer
screens.
Torch, Torch Leads, and Gas Hoses
1. Verify that all torch lead and gas hose connections are tight and that there are no
gas or coolant leaks. Only tighten the fittings enough to make a coolant or gas
seal. The fittings are subject to damage if over tightened.
2. Verify that the braided shield of the torch leads is fastened securely to the brass
shield adapter that connects to the arc starting console. Also, make sure the shield
adapter is secured tightly to the arc starting console enclosure.
3. Inspect the braided shield for nicks or cuts and replace if necessary.
4. Remove the torch handle and verify that the connections at the torch base are
tightened securely. Only tighten the fittings enough to make a coolant or gas
seal. The fittings are subject to damage if over tightened. Coolant leaking from
the drain hole in the torch handle indicates damaged or loose torch leads.
5. Make sure the torch lead insulating sleeves are positioned to properly cover the
brass torch fittings at the torch base.
6. Inspect the outer sleeve on the torch base's electrode/coolant supply lead. If
nicks, cuts or holes are found, replace the torch base.
7. Remove the torch consumables from the torch head and inspect all o-rings.
Replace any o-rings with cuts, nicks, abrasions, or any other signs of wear.
Faulty o-rings may cause gas or coolant leaks, which will affect cut quality.

8. With the electrode removed, inspect the cooling tube in the torch head for
damage.
If using the copper electrode, the torch head uses cooling tube P/N BK277007. If
replacement is required, use tool P/N BK200109.
If using the silver electrode, the torch head uses cooling tube holder assembly
P/N BK279216. Remove this using the tool (socket P/N BK277087 & driver P/N
BK277086) and inspect the o-rings for damage. Apply a small amount of o-ring
lubricant before re-installing in the torch head.
9. Wipe any excess o-ring lubricant off of the torch base and head.
Arc Starting Console (ASC)
1. Open the cover (door) of the arc starting console and verify that all leads and hoses
are tightened securely. Only tighten the fittings enough to make a coolant or
gas seal. The fittings are subject to damage if over tightened.
2. For systems that include ASC with RHF, check the spark gap electrodes for signs of
wear. Replace electrodes that have rounded faces. Use a clean feeler gauge and
set the spark gap to .015” (.38 mm).
Work Ground
1. Verify that the work ground lead is securely fastened to the star ground on the
cutting table, and that the connection point is free from corrosion. Use a wire brush
to clean the connection point if necessary.

Replacing the Torch Coolant and Filter
WARNING: Do not touch the fans inside the power supply.
Important: Never turn on the system when the coolant reservoir is empty.
Important: When handling coolant, wear nitrile gloves and safety glasses.
Important: Only use approved coolant. Commercially available antifreeze
contains corrosion inhibitors that will damage the cooling system.
See Section 2 for more information.
The torch coolant should be flushed out of the system every six months and replaced
with new coolant. Replace the coolant filter / deionization cartridge at the same time.
1. Remove primary power from the Spirit system.
2. Ensure the torch base and torch head (with consumables) are properly installed.
3. Ensure the coolant supply (in and out) hoses are properly installed.
4. Remove the coolant reservoir cap/level gauge.
5. Remove the top, left and right covers from the power supply.
6. Connect a 3/8" ID hose and bucket to the drain petcock on the bottom of the
reservoir. Unscrew the petcock to drain the reservoir. Leave the hose and bucket in
place after the coolant drains out.
7. Remove the coolant supply hose (coolant out) from the rear of the power supply.
Note that the coolant supply hose has right hand threads. Be prepared for some
coolant to escape from the fitting on the power supply and from the supply hose.
8. Blow compressed air (100 psi maximum) into the coolant supply hose. This will force
the remaining coolant from the torch, torch leads, and supply hose into the reservoir
and out of the drain petcock. Continue until coolant stops flowing into the bucket.
9. Tighten the drain petcock and remove the hose and bucket.
10. Protect the area beneath the coolant filter housing as coolant will leak during this
step. Unscrew the coolant filter housing and remove it from the power supply. Use

Spirit II User’s Manual
Section 6: Maintenance &Troubleshooting
Chopper Test Procedure
WARNING: Only qualified maintenance personnel should perform the chopper
test procedure. The system utilizes potentially fatal A.C. and D.C. voltages. All
maintenance should be performed with safety in mind.
Use extreme caution when working near the power conversion module (i.e.,
chopper). The large electrolytic capacitors store large amounts of energy even
after power has been removed from the system. Wait at least five minutes after
turning off power, and then use a voltmeter to verify that the capacitors are fully
discharged before touching the power conversion module.
Capacitor failure can injure and/or cause property damage. If troubleshooting
requires the system to be powered with the enclosure panels removed, remain
clear of the capacitors. Failure of a capacitor can result in a sudden release of
stored energy causing rupture of the capacitor case.
IMPORTANT: Depending upon the system, there are one, two or three chopper
assemblies in the power supply. The following steps must be performed on each
chopper with the other chopper(s) disabled. To disable a chopper, remove the
plug from J1 on the chopper PCB (see drawing on next page).
1. Remove primary power from the Spirit system.
2. Remove the top, left, right and front covers from the power supply to expose the
DSP PCB, input and output terminal blocks and chopper(s).
3. Remove the HF/ISC wire connected to TB2 side 2 (right side) from position 2 or 3.
Make sure to isolate the connector so that it doesn’t come in contact with anything
metal during this test. Return the jumper wire to the original position at the end of
this test.

4. Remove the Electrode, Work and Nozzle leads from the output terminal block, which
is located on the left side of the unit.
5. Ensure the torch head (with a full set of consumables) is properly installed onto the
torch base.
6. Apply primary power to the Spirit system.
7. Release the OFF Button on the Plasma Controller or Manual Gas Console to enable
the system. Press or SELECT the ON Button to energize the system. After the
gases set, prepare to apply a start signal to the unit.
8. With a start signal applied, check the three phase voltage input to each chopper at
the diode bridge terminals (three screws on the left side of each chopper). Refer to
TABLE 1 for the proper three phase AC voltage.
Note that the system will only energize for approximately two seconds each
time a start signal is applied.
If the voltage is not present, check for primary voltage on the main contactor
(CON 1) and on the primary side of the power transformer.

the bottom right of the output bus bars.
If the fuse is open, replace chopper and fuse.
11. If the fuse(s) is good, check if the chopper PWM LED illuminates when a start signal
is applied:
a) check D24 on the DSP PCB – If D24 doesn’t illuminate, replace DSP PCB.
b) check D2 on the chopper PCB – If D2 doesn’t illuminate green, go to step 12.
12. Check PCB power to the chopper from the DSP:
a) Push the OFF Button.
b) Disconnect the J1 plug from the chopper PCB.
c) Leave the OFF Button pushed in.
d) With a digital voltmeter, measure the following voltages on the J1 plug:
J1-5 (ground) to J1-1
+15vdc Supply
J1-5 (ground) to J1-2
+5vdc Supply
J1-5 (ground) to J1-3
+5vdc (PWM Signal)
If ALL of the voltages are present, replace chopper. If any of the voltages are not
present, go to step 13:

Section 8: Internal Inova Console Option
Overview
This optional Inova system is designed to provide arc voltage control to any plasma
cutting system, however, combining it with the Spirit II provides the added convenience
of having Inova console built directly into the plasma power supply.
This section only covers topics unique to the Spirit II system with the internally installed
Inova console. See the standard Inova manual for all other Inova information.
Plug Identification
Connections for the internal Inova console option are distinguished from other
connections on the back of the power supply by the addition of the letter "I" before the
plug number. The function of each plug (e.g., IP1) is the same as the corresponding
plug found on the external Inova console (e.g., P1).

Appendix A: Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
Appendix A:
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
Background
The 380V 50/60Hz and 415V 50/60Hz CE marked Spirit plasma cutting systems are
manufactured to comply with the European standard EN 60974-10 (Electromagnetic
compatibility (EMC) – Product standard for arc welding equipment). The system has
been tested in accordance with CISPR 11, EMC classification – Group 2 ISM (Class A).
The limits used in this standard are based on practical experience. However, the ability
of plasma cutting equipment to work in a compatible manner with other radio and
electronic systems is greatly influenced by the manner in which it is installed and used.
For this reason, it is important that the plasma cutting equipment be installed and used
in accordance with the information below if electromagnetic compatibility is to be
achieved.
Plasma cutting equipment is primarily intended for use in an industrial environment.
There may be potential difficulties in ensuring electromagnetic compatibility in other
environments.
Installation and Use
The user is responsible for installing and using the plasma cutting equipment according
to the manufacturer’s instructions. If electromagnetic disturbances are detected then it
shall be the responsibility of the user of the plasma cutting equipment to resolve the
situation with the technical assistance of the manufacturer. In some cases this remedial
action may be as simple as earthing the plasma cutting circuit, see Note. In other cases
it could involve constructing an electromagnetic screen enclosing the plasma power
source and the work, complete with associated input filters.
In all cases,
electromagnetic disturbances shall be reduced to the point where they are no longer
troublesome.
Note: The plasma cutting circuit may or may not be earthed for safety reasons.
Changing the earthing arrangements should only be authorized by a person who is
competent to assess whether the changes will increase the risk of injury, e.g. by
allowing parallel plasma cutting current return paths which may damage the earth
circuits of other equipment. Further guidance is given in IEC 974-13 Arc welding
equipment – Installation and use.
This information is subject to the controls of the Export Administration Regulations [EAR]. This information shall not be provided to
non-U.S. persons or transferred by any means to any location outside the United States contrary to the requirements of the EAR.
A-1
Appendix A: Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
Spirit II User’s Manual
Assessment of Area
Before installing plasma cutting equipment, the user shall make an assessment of
potential electromagnetic problems in the surrounding area. The following shall be
taken into account:
a) other supply cables, control cables, signaling and telephone cables; above, below
and adjacent to the plasma cutting equipment;
b) radio and television transmitters and receivers;
c) computer and other control equipment;
d) safety critical equipment, e.g. guarding of industrial equipment;
e) the health of the people around, e.g. the use of pacemakers and hearing aids;
f) equipment used for calibration or measurement;
g) the immunity of other equipment in the environment; the user shall ensure that other
equipment being used in the environment is compatible; this may require additional
protection measures;
h) the time of day that plasma cutting or other activities are to be carried out.
The size of the surrounding area to be considered will depend on the structure of the
building and other activities that are taking place. The surrounding area may extend
beyond the boundaries of the premises.
Methods of Reducing Emissions
Mains Supply
Plasma cutting equipment should be connected to the mains supply according to the
manufacturer’s recommendations. If interference occurs, it may be necessary to take
additional precautions such as filtering of the mains supply. Consideration should be
given to shielding the supply cable of permanently installed plasma cutting equipment in
metallic conduit or equivalent. Shielding should be electrically continuous throughout its
length. The shielding should be connected to the plasma power source so that good
electrical contact is maintained between the conduit and the plasma power source
enclosure.
Maintenance of the Plasma Cutting Equipment
The plasma cutting equipment should be routinely maintained according to the
manufacturer’s recommendations. All access and service doors and covers should be
closed and properly fastened when the plasma cutting equipment is in operation. The
plasma cutting equipment should not be modified in any way except for those changes
and adjustments covered in the manufacturer’s instructions. In particular, the spark
gaps (if the system includes ACS with RHF) and stabilizing devices should be adjusted
and maintained according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Plasma Cutting Cables
The plasma cutting cables should be kept as short as possible and should be positioned
close together, running at or close to the floor level.
This information is subject to the controls of the Export Administration Regulations [EAR]. This information shall not be provided to
non-U.S. persons or transferred by any means to any location outside the United States contrary to the requirements of the EAR.
A-2
Spirit II User’s Manual
Appendix A: Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
Equipotential Bonding
Bonding of all metallic components in the plasma cutting installation and adjacent to it
should be considered. However, metallic components bonded to the workpiece will
increase the risk that the operator could receive a shock by touching these metallic
components and the electrode at the same time. The operator should be insulated from
all such bonded metallic components.
Earthing of the Workpiece
Where the workpiece is not bonded to earth for electrical safety, nor connected to earth
because of its size and position, e.g. ship’s hull or building steelwork, a connection
bonding the workpiece to earth may reduce emissions in some, but not all instances.
Care should be taken to prevent the earthing of the workpiece increasing the risk of
injury to users, or damage to other electrical equipment. Where necessary, the
connection of the workpiece to earth should be made by a direct connection to the
workpiece, but in some countries where direct connection is not permitted, the bonding
should be achieved by suitable capacitance, selected according to national regulations.
Screening and Shielding
Selective screening and shielding of other cables and equipment in the surrounding
area may alleviate problems of interference. Screening of the entire welding installation
may be considered for special applications.

Appendix B: Serial Communication
Appendix B: Serial Communication
Initializing the Spirit System
The Spirit system uses an RS-422 serial communication port located on the rear of the
plasma console to receive and respond to commands that are transmitted from an x/y
controller. The communications ground is isolated to prevent ground loops. System
initialization is simple. Apply power, wait until the plasma console has finished booting,
then transmit the desired material type, material thickness, and optionally the process
(cutting or marking) and the system will be ready for operation. All other parameters will
be set to their default values and may be changed at any time.
Transmitting Parameters to the Spirit System
To transmit parameters to the Spirit, convert the following hex strings to 8 bit binary
arrays (AA = 10101010) and transmit them using a 9600 baud RS-422 serial
communication port. The port settings should have a start bit, one stop bit, and no
parity. A table can be found in this section that lists the RS-422 commands and their
descriptions. This table contains the necessary hex strings for sending different
commands and parameters to the system. For example, to switch the material type
from mild steel to stainless steel, look up the command for setting material type in the
table. You will see the following table entry:
Command
Set Material Type
# Hex String
1
AA nn FA 01 00 -- 0D
Additional Information
00 = Mild Steel – Hot Rolled
01 = Stainless Steel
02 = Aluminum
03 = Other
04 = Mild Steel – Cold Rolled
Note that spaces in the command string are shown for clarity only and should not be
sent as part of the command. A command string always begins with the value AA hex.
The “nn” is the net node (communication node) of the Spirit system that is to receive the
command. The net node value of a system is set via the Set Communication Node
selection on the maintenance screen. See Section 4 for detailed information on setting
the net node. The value FA hex is the Spirit identifier. The value 01 hex is the value
that signifies the Set Material Type command. The value 0D hex is the end of
command character. In the above example, the following hex string would need to be
transmitted to switch the material type to stainless steel for a Spirit system on node 1:
AA 01 FA 01 00 01 0D
To send a parameter, the parameter value needs to be sent as part of the command.
For example, to send a desired cutting pierce time of 1000 milliseconds to the system,

Time in mS (seconds / 1000)
Valid range: 0 to 5000
Once again, AA hex signifies the start of the command, “nn” is the net node of the
power supply, and FA hex is the Spirit identifier. The value 04 hex signifies the Set
Pierce Time command, and 0D hex signifies the end of the command. The “-- --” in the
hex string is the MSB followed by the LSB of a type int. The integer is the value used in
the additional information column. Thus, the “-- --” is sometimes referred to as the
additional information value. In the example, we wanted to transmit a pierce time of
1000 mS (1 second). This value in hexadecimal would be 03E8 (msb=03, lsb=E8). In
this example, the following string would be transmitted in order to set the pierce time to
1000mS for a power supply on net node 1:
AA 01 FA 04 03 E8 0D
For multiple power supply installations, commands can be sent to all power supplies at
the same time. This is referred to as a global command. To send a global command,
set the net node value to C8 hex (200 decimal). In the example above, the following
string would be transmitted to set the pierce time to 1000mS for all power supplies
connected on the network:
AA C8 FA 04 03 E8 0D
Communication Error Checking
With a single torch system, all commands and parameters transmitted to the Spirit will
be back transmitted in exactly the same form for error checking. With a multiple torch
system, only the system with node focus will back transmit the commands. The
purpose of the node focus command (#254) is to allow one Spirit system to use the
transmission lines at a time. If no node focus is set on initialization, the first system to
receive a command will receive node focus automatically. Commands may be
transmitted to systems without node focus, but there will be no back transmission from
those systems. Also, all parameters can be read at any time by transmitting a Send
Parameter command (#30) to the Spirit, followed by the appropriate parameter to be
read.

Spirit II User’s Manual
Appendix B: Serial Communication
Default Cutting Parameters
In order to initialize parameters on a Spirit system an external device must
communicate, in sequence, the material type, material thickness, process (cutting or
marking) and the cutting current. Once the Spirit system receives the cutting current, all
other parameters will be set to their default values. Whenever the material type,
material thickness, process or cutting current is changed, new default values will be
retrieved for all other parameters. If a changed is desired, cutting current must be sent
last for the updated to occur, To use non-standard parameters, first set the material
type, material thickness, process and cutting current (in sequence), and then set the
remaining parameters (i.e. Pierce time) to the desired values.
Troubleshooting Serial Communication
When troubleshooting serial communication with the Spirit system, switch to the View
Serial Communication Screen to view incoming and outgoing data. See Section 4 for
information on the RS-422 Tab.
