There should be a small box with a couple outlets on it, that connects to the control box. The Plate Marker plugs into it. When I got my table there were so many things to set up I didn't realize that little box was missing, and was kinda confused as well. I gave TM a call and they were right on it though.

I can't tell you exactly what you need exactly if you are putting it on another brand of machine, but you need a Machine Interface as Dallas mentioned if it is going on a Torchmate table. You plug the Plate Marker into the interface and then plug the interface into the control system that turns on and off the tool when commanded by the computer. Give a call this morning and one of our tech guys can walk you through what needs to happen. (866)571-1066

i have the bladerunner AIO controller. it has on the controller two outlets for powering any 110v product and 2 relays that power it. i figured it out last night after looking at the manual. the platemarker looked to simple to hook up...lol. now i just have to figure out how to get sheetcam to put the marker in its tool paths. its hard for me to call tech support to during the day because im not in front of the machine. my day job doesnt allow me to leave...lol. i dont get to the shop till after 4:30

You have a copy of the Setup and Start Guide on the CD labeled Drivers and Instructions that has a section in it called Multi Tool Guide, that will walk you through configuring multiple tools. Here is a link to the multi tool guide if you do not have the CD http://www.fab-solutions.com/downloa...ol%20Guide.pdf
