    You definitely have power and ground wrong. If you hook up the LCTHC wrong it will energize the relay.

    Are yoy sure your connecting the lcthc the right way? Torch in means the relay is getting energized and most likely not a fault of thw lcthc. Your g540 was it new? Can you test it for power coming out of the 2 outputs? You may just have it flipped around the wrong way.

    My specific problem is that when I turn the controller on, as soon as the splash screen on the LCTHC closes and goes to the voltage screen, the torch on circuit fires and stays on. The red light on the front panel comes on, TOR shows on the LCD, and I can hear the relay click on the sensor card. In Mach diagnostics, torch on is not "on", and in fact the same symptom occurs even if I start the g540 with parallel cable disconnected. It is not being triggered by Mach despite Tom's instance that the only thing that can trigger torch on is Mach.

    I know the candcnc is a well respected company, and that Tom is the driving force behind that, but I found him to be less than helpful (or even pleasant) considering that the specs on the LCTCH say that they offer 60 days free phone support and unlimited online support.

    Regardless, I am not giving up! I know it can work, and I will get it working one way or another.

    Again, thanks for your time and I am sorry to have gone on so long!

    Thanks for the reply! I followed the newest rev. of the manual to the letter, and have re-done my work form scratch three times to make sure I did not make a mistake. I was just grasping at straws when I saw your post.

    I have noticed several inaccuracies or missing information in the most current manual, so I was hoping that might be part of my problem. One perfect example is that they show all of the connections from the LCTHC to the g540, but omitted the jumper from the g540 pin 10 to ground. Granted, this is a g540 requirement, but to be fair to a g540 non-expert, the manual does not really show "all" of the necessary wiring. I was just wondering if there is anything else I need to do but that is not in the manual.

    The new updated manual has all the wiring Erik. LCTHC has a specific wiring method outlined in the schematic. You would have to ask the right question here...ie....my torch isn't firing....my tip volts aren't reading. What exactly is the issue your having? In CandCNCs defense they cannot support a product like that and list out that they don't do phone support on that product.

    Greetings! I am having a heck of a time trying to get my new LCTHC from candcnc to work with my g540 system. In a thread a while ago you mentioned something about a ground that is needed but not in the LCTHC manual. Are you still willing to share your "correct" wiring diagrams? I am getting no help from Tom at candcnc and your post was the first time I saw some information that made me hopeful! If you can still help with the diagrams, my address is eriklas@hotmail.com. I really appreciate it!

I'll be using a manual milling machine and I was thinking about cutting it with a fly cutter...........Thanks for any input

Fly cutter yes, dont know much about that vise. Tilt your head the intake angle and trim away. You will quickly find out how good your tool cutter geometry...
