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. It is
management’s responsibility to see that the following safety information is provided to
each person who will operate, observe, perform maintenance, or work in close proximity
to this piece of equipment.
Installation, as well as repairs, made to the ProLine 2260 system should only be
performed by qualified personnel. The ProLine 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 ProLine 2260 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.
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.
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.

ProLine 2260 User’s Manual REV N
Electric Shock Prevention
The ProLine 2260 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 ProLine system. Observe the following guidelines to protect
against electric shock:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
A wall-mounted disconnect should be installed and fused according to local and
national electrical codes. The disconnect 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 ProLine 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 ProLine power supply. Make sure the connection is securely
tightened.
Make sure the positive output (work ground) of the ProLine 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 ProLine system is switched off at the wall disconnect before
servicing the power supply or torch.
Never change torch consumable parts unless the ProLine 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 ProLine 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 5 for additional
safety precautions.
Never operate the ProLine system without all of the covers in place. See Section
5 for additional safety precautions.
Preventive maintenance should be performed daily to avoid possible safety
hazards.

Safety
ProLine 2260 User’s Manual REV N
Fire Prevention
When using the ProLine 2260 system, it is necessary to exercise good judgment. While
cutting, the arc produces sparks that could cause a fire should they fall on flammable
material. Make sure that all flammable material, such as paper, cloth, etc., is 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 ProLine 2260 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 ProLine 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.
• Compressed gas cylinders should be maintained properly. Never attempt to use
a cylinder that is leaking, cracked, or has other signs of physical damage.
• All gas cylinders should be secured to a wall or rack to prevent accidental knock
over.
• If a compressed gas cylinder is not being used, replace the protective valve
cover.
• Never attempt to repair compressed gas cylinders.
• Keep compressed gas cylinders away from intense heat, sparks, or flames.
• Clear the compressed gas cylinder connection point by opening the valve
momentarily prior to installing a regulator.
• Never lubricate compressed gas cylinder valves or pressure regulators with any
type of oil or grease.
• Never use a compressed gas cylinder or pressure regulator for any purpose other
than which it is intended.
• Never use a pressure regulator for any gas other than which it is intended.
• Never use a pressure regulator that is leaking or has other signs of physical
damage.
• Never use oxygen hoses and pressure regulators for any gas other than oxygen.
• Never use any gas hose that is leaking or has other signs of physical damage.

The ProLine 2260 is a microprocessor controlled, 275 amp, 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 from gauge to 2" thick and stainless steel from gauge to 11/2” thick. The maximum piercing capacity is 1-1/4” thick material. The ProLine 2260
is equipped with a manually operated gas console with pressure readouts for all gases.
All gas inlets and outlets are connected to the rear of the gas console. For excellent cut
quality on mild steel, the ProLine 2260 uses oxygen for the plasma gas and either oxygen
or air for the shielding gas. When cutting stainless steel or other non-ferrous materials,
either 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. Air or nitrogen is used for the
preflow and postflow gases.
When cost is of greater concern than cut quality, the
system can be configured to use clean, dry, oil-free shop air for all gas types.
The ProLine 2260 is technologically advanced to produce the highest quality cuts while
maximizing consumable life. 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.

Power Supply Installation
The ProLine 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 Figure 2-1 for power supply
dimensions.
Remote High Frequency Console Installation
The Remote High Frequency (RHF) Console should be mounted in a convenient location
that is away from other electronic control devices. The high voltage, high frequency
signal generated inside the unit can interfere with the operation of certain control
systems. The RHF console is usually mounted on the gantry of the cutting machine or on
the cutting table. See Figure 2-2 for RHF console mounting dimensions.
Torch Installation
The ProLine 2260 torch must be installed on the positioner of an arc voltage control
capable of maintaining the cutting arc voltage within 1 arc volt. The arc voltage must be
adjustable in 1 arc volt increments. The positioner must be rigid to ensure cut quality and
a torch collision sensor is highly recommended. See Figure 2-3 for torch mounting
dimensions.
Primary Power Connection
** Before connecting primary power, check the data plate to verify the
voltage required by the ProLine power supply **
A primary disconnect switch, switching all ungrounded supply conductors, should be
provided for each ProLine power supply. 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 should be equipped with time delay fuses only.
The magnetic inrush current of the power supply will cause fast acting fuses to blow.
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:

top of the torch head. Reminder: do not use an excessive amount of o-ring
lubricant.
2. Align the indicator on the torch head (small 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 LEFT to tighten.
4. Keep tightening the attachment ring until it stops. As shown below, the
attachment ring will NOT cover the o-ring. This is only a visual indicator; no
seal is created. However, there should be no gap between the attachment ring
and the o-ring.
During the tightening process (after the initial install) 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.

CNC Machine Interface Connections
Perform the following steps to properly interface the ProLine 2260 system with a CNC
cutting machine. See the system schematic for additional information.
Plasma Start Signal
• The ProLine 2260 requires a contact closure between P8 pins 3 and 4 to commence
the cutting sequence. The cutting sequence is terminated when the contacts are
opened. The contacts should be rated for 12VDC - 10mA. If the ProLine 2260 is
ordered with the integrated Inova system, see below for interface information.
Arc Hold / IHS Complete Signal
• The ProLine 2260 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 arc
hold / IHS complete contacts are opened, the cutting 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
12VDC - 10mA. If the ProLine 2260 is ordered with the integrated Inova system,
see below for interface information.
Motion Output Signal
• The ProLine 2260 provides a maintained contact closure output between P8 pins 12
and 14 as long as a cutting arc is maintained between the torch and the workpiece.
The motion contacts are rated for .6A - 125VAC / .6A - 110VDC / 2A - 30VDC. If
the ProLine 2260 is ordered with the integrated Inova system, see below for interface
information.
Inova Connections (optional)
• When the ProLine 2260 is ordered with the integrated Inova torch height control
system, connect the Inova C cable between P8 on the rear of the power supply and
P3 on the Inova control panel. The C cable is used to interface the plasma start,
plasma hold, and machine motion signals between the Inova and the ProLine 2260.
Next, connect the Inova D cable between P7 on the rear of the power supply and P2
on the Inova control panel. The Inova D cable is used to interface the cutting arc
voltage and plate sensing circuit between the Inova and the ProLine 2260. Next,
connect the Inova E cable between the Work terminal on the ProLine power supply
and the Ground lug on the Inova control panel. Note that the E cable is not a safety
ground. It is part of the voltage feedback circuit used for arc voltage control. See
the Inova manual for details on x/y machine, operator’s remote, and positioner
interface.

Torch Coolant Requirements
Note: Refer to the supplier’s most current Material Safety Data Sheet for
information regarding safety, handling, and storage of
torch coolant.
The ProLine 2260 system is shipped without torch coolant in the reservoir.
Coolant must be added before applying power to the system. Only use
Kaliburn 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 500695. For
operating temperatures below -13º C, a 50% solution of industrial grade
propylene glycol can be ordered in one-gallon containers, PN 500895, 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 water filter/deionization cartridge should also be
changed at the same time. See Section 5 for details.

if the coolant level drops below the minimum level inside the reservoir. If this
happens, add more coolant solution to the reservoir and return to Step 3.
5. When the Coolant Flow LED illuminates, release the green ON switch. The
ProLine system should remain energized and continue pumping coolant
through the system.
6. Locate the small red push-button on top of the coolant filter/deionization
cartridge. Depress and hold the button until no air is seen inside the clear
filter housing.
7. Fill the reservoir with coolant solution until the coolant gauge indicates full.
Coolant should be added to the system any time the level drops below half
full.
8. Check for coolant leaks at all hose connections inside the power supply, RHF
console, and at the torch.

Setting up a Cut
Note: When installing the torch parts, 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, cause starting problems, and shorten consumable life.
1.
Turn off the primary power to the unit.
2.
Using the cutting charts found in the rear of this section, determine the proper torch
parts and cutting conditions for the material being cut.
3.
If using a copper electrode, apply a small amount of o-ring lubricant to the two orings on the electrode. Then, use the tool (P/N 277087) to tighten the electrode into
the torch head. If using a silver electrode, apply a small amount of o-ring lubricant
to the o-ring on the electrode. Then, use the tool (P/N 279061) to tighten the silver
electrode into the torch head.
4.
Apply a small amount of o-ring lubricant to the two o-rings on the swirl ring and
insert the swirl ring into the nozzle.
5.
Apply a small amount of o-ring lubricant to the two o-rings on the nozzle and push
the swirl ring/nozzle assembly into the torch head until it is seated properly.

Making a Cut
Once the unit has been properly set up and the x/y machine and height control systems
have been properly configured, perform the following steps to cut with the system:
1. Use the x/y machine control to apply a start signal to the system. Upon the
reception of a cycle start signal, the following sequence will take place:
• Two second gas preflow
• High frequency starting circuit energized
• Pilot arc initiation
• Transferred arc (cutting arc) established
• Motion output relay energized after Pierce Delay timer complete
2. Upon removal of the cycle start signal, the following sequence will take place:
• Cutting arc extinguished
• Motion output relay deenergized
• Gas postflow
Consumable Life
Use the following guidelines to maximize consumable parts life:
1. 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.
2. Make sure the arc extinguishes properly at the end of each cut. Program the leadout such that the arc is not lost before the lead-out is complete. The arc must
remain transferred to the workpiece throughout the turn-off sequence. A
“popping” noise can be heard if the arc extinguishes abnormally.
3. Make sure the torch does not touch the plate while cutting. Shield cap and nozzle
damage will result.
4. Use a chain cut when possible. Starting and stopping the torch is much more
detrimental to the consumables than making a continuous cut.

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 ProLine 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.

Maintenance and Troubleshooting
ProLine 2260 User’s Manual REV N
Section 5 Maintenance and Troubleshooting
WARNING: Only qualified maintenance personnel should perform maintenance on
the ProLine 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, front, and rear panels of the power supply.
2. Using clean, dry, compressed air, blow out all accumulated dust inside the power
supply, including dust on p.c. 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 that all torch lead and work ground connections are secure and free from
corrosion.
4. Verify that the primary three phase A.C. voltage connections are tight
5. Verify that all p.c. board connectors are installed securely.
6. Verify that the rear panel cable connectors are installed securely.
7. Verify that the gas console connectors are installed securely to the plugs on the
bottom of the gas console.
8. Check the torch coolant filter/deionization cartridge at the rear of the power supply
and replace if dirty.
9. Flush the cooling system every six months and replace the coolant and coolant
filter/deionization cartridge.
Gas Console
1. Remove the cover of the gas console.
2. Using clean, dry, compressed air, blow out all accumulated dust inside the unit. In
an excessively dirty environment, blow out the unit on a weekly basis.
3. Verify that all p.c. board connectors are installed securely.
4. 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.
5. Inspect all gas hoses to ensure no damage exists. Immediately replace any damaged
gas hoses.

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 water leaks. Only tighten the fittings enough to make a water 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 remote high frequency console. Also, make sure
the shield adapter is secured tightly to the high frequency 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 water or gas seal. The fittings
are subject to damage if over tightened.
5. Make sure the torch lead insulating sleeves are positioned to properly cover the
brass torch fittings at the rear of the torch.
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 the o-rings on the
torch base. Replace any o-rings with cuts, nicks, abrasions, or any other signs of
wear. Faulty o-rings may cause gas or water leaks, which will affect cut quality.
8. With the electrode removed, inspect the cooling tube in the torch head for damage. If
using a copper electrode, the torch head uses cooling tube P/N 277007. If replacement
is required, use tool P/N 200109.
If using a silver electrode, the torch head uses cooling tube P/N 279117 and cooling
tube holder P/N 279116. Remove the cooling tube holder using tool P/N 277087 and
inspect the o-rings for damage. Apply a small amount of o-ring lubricant before reinstalling in the torch head.
9. Wipe any excess o-ring lubricant off of the torch base and head.
Remote High Frequency Console
1. Open the cover of the RHF console and verify that all leads and hoses are tightened
securely. Only tighten the fittings enough to make a water or gas seal. The fittings are subject
to damage if over tightened.
2. 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
The torch coolant should be flushed out of the system every six months and
replaced with new coolant. The following procedure should be used to prevent
damage to the cooling system.
Note: When handling coolant, it is recommended that you wear nitrile gloves
and safety glasses.
1.
Remove primary power to the system.
2.
Remove the rear cover of the power supply to expose the cooling system.
3.
Remove the coolant reservoir cap/level gauge.
4.
Make sure that consumables are properly installed in the torch head and that
the torch head is installed on the torch base.
5.
Using a funnel to collect the coolant, unscrew the drain petcock on the
bottom of the coolant reservoir. Leave the funnel in place after the coolant
drains out of the reservoir.
6.
Remove the torch coolant supply hose from the rear of the power supply.
Note that the coolant supply hose has right hand threads.
7.
Blow compressed air (100 psi maximum) into the coolant supply hose. This
will clear the coolant out of the torch, torch leads, and heat exchanger. Note
that the coolant will be forced into the reservoir and will drain out of the
drain petcock.
8.
Unscrew the lower portion of the coolant filter housing and remove the
coolant filter/deionization cartridge.
9.

Maintenance and Troubleshooting
ProLine 2260 User’s Manual REV N
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.
Note: A chopper troubleshooting flow chart can be found at the end of this section.
1. Turn off all power to the ProLine power supply.
2. Open the RHF console door and disconnect the black primary wires of the high
frequency transformer from the 120 VAC line filter. Close the RHF console door
to activate the door interlock switch.
3. Remove the front and left side panels from the power supply to expose the output
terminal block and the microprocessor p.c. board.
4. Remove the Electrode and Nozzle leads from the bottom connections of the
output terminal block (refer to Figure 3-3).
5. Apply three phase power to the unit and check the primary power on the input
terminal block TB5 (refer to Figure 3-2).
6. Depress the ON button to energize the ProLine system, and then apply a start
signal to the unit. Note that the unit will only energize for approximately two seconds each
time a start signal is applied. When making the following readings, be sure the red DC Power
light is illuminated on the front control panel of the unit. After applying the start signal,
check the three phase voltage input to the chopper at the diode bridge terminals
(three right side screws on the chopper assembly) for 225 VAC. If the voltage is
not present, check for primary voltage on the main contactor CON and on the
primary side of the power transformer.
7. With a start signal applied, check for 325 VDC at the ProLine output terminal
block between Electrode and Work. If 325 VDC is present, the chopper is
working properly.
8. If 325 VDC is not present at the output terminal block, install a jumper wire
between P28-7 & P28-8 (ILK1). With a start signal applied, check for 325 VDC
at the Proline output terminal block between Electrode and Work. If 325 VDC is
present, the chopper is working properly. Check the I/O PCB (HV- Output) and
its wiring to the Microprocessor PCB.

ProLine 2260 User’s Manual REV N
9. If 325 VDC is not present at the output terminal block, leave the jumper wire
installed between P28-7 & P28-8 (ILK1). Check the chopper status LED’s when
a start signal is applied:
a) LED’s 4 & 5 off - go to step 10.
b) LED’s 4 & 5 on, LED 6 off - go to step 11.
c) LED’s 4 & 5 on, LED 6 on, LED 7 off - go to step 12.
d) Only LED 4 or LED 5 on (not both) - replace chopper.
e) All LEDs on – replace chopper.
10. Check the 120 VAC supply to the chopper between P1-1 and P1-3 on the chopper
p.c. board. If 120 V is present, replace the chopper. If 120 V is not present,
check fuse F3 and associated wiring.
11. Apply a start signal to the power supply and check the DC voltage between P2-4
(ground) and P2-5 (signal) on the chopper p.c. board. This voltage should change
from approximately 15.5 VDC to less than 1 VDC after the main contactor of the
power supply is energized. If 15.5 VDC is not present, replace the chopper. If no
voltage change occurs, check for approximately 15.5 VDC between P26-1
(ground) and P26-2 (signal) on the microprocessor p.c. board. If 15.5 VDC is not
present, check continuity between P26 on the microprocessor p.c. board and P2
on the chopper p.c. board. If 15.5 VDC is present at the microprocessor p.c.
board, replace the microprocessor.
12. Turn off primary power to the power supply. Disconnect P2 from the chopper
p.c. board and P26 from the microprocessor p.c. board. Check continuity between
P26-8 and P2-1 and between P26-7 and P2-2. Also check that these wires are not
shorted to each other. If the cable is OK, connect P26 to the microprocessor p.c.
board, but leave P2 disconnected from the chopper. With power applied, give the
power supply a start signal and check for approximately 10 VDC between P26-7
(ground) and P26-8 (signal) when the main contactor is energized. If 10 VDC is
not present, replace the microprocessor p.c. board. If 10 VDC is present, turn all
power off, reconnect P2 to the chopper p.c. board, and repeat the test for 10 VDC
between P2-2 (ground) and P2-1 (signal). If 10 VDC is present and LED 7 is not
illuminated, replace the chopper.

Appendix A Electromagnetic Compatibility
(EMC)
Background
The 380V 50/60Hz and 415V 50/60Hz CE marked ProLine 2260 plasma cutting
systems are manufactured to comply with the European standard EN60974-10
(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
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
ProLine 2260 User’s Manual REV N
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 of arc striking and stabilizing devices
should be adjusted and maintained according to the manufacturer’s
recommendations.

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
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
ProLine 2260 User’s Manual REV N
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.
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.
