PlasmaGun Control Console

CP-620 Series

The new CP-620 Control Console features the time tested concepts of compact styling, simplified operation, and minimal maintenance. It incorporates many features required for today's operation and provides the opportunity to create tomorrow's technology. By virtue of increased gas volume capability and multiple mixing gas capability, a wide variety of high energy/high velocity parameters may be achieved. Without sacrificing the compact styling which allows the plasma console to be positioned as close to the workplace as possible, many new features have been added. Included are controls of some of the more distant auxiliary equipment such as power supply cooling and water control circuits. In addition, the operation of all required utility functions are controlled and monitored at the workplace. In critical areas, audio as well as visual indications are given.

Another feature of the new control console is a mode switch allowing for operation of a single selected utility circuit. This feature allows simplified trouble shooting without the interference and expense of operating other utilities. The above functions allow constant monitoring of the spray operation and greater ease in trouble shooting without sacrificing the ease of operation traditional with Bay State/Sterling equipment. The CP.-620 incorporates new features to control and monitor plasma gases. The system monitors both pressure and flow of any of the plasma forming gas or gas mixtures, and provides the ability to operate with multiple mixing gases. Using percentage meters and charts, a single meter can be used to set all gas flows in English or Metric units. Included is a protective circuit that eliminates flowmeter breakage caused by high-pressure gas surges.

Featured in the electrical control and monitoring circuits is a new and highly accurate digital readout for both voltage and current. At a glance, voltage and current can be monitored or controlled at the point of operation. Control of water cooling system, essential to protection and efficient operation of a plasma spray gun is provided by circuitry in the control console. By interconnecting with a flow  switch kit or booster pump or heat exchanger, circuitry is provided to automatically shutdown the PlasmaGun operation should the water system fail. The monitoring system provides both visual and audio indicators. This is down without the need for water to flow through the control console itself.  The CP-620 Control Console provides simplified operation of every aspect of the plasma spraying operation. By virtue of gas, electrical, and water control and monitoring, all important spray parameters can be maximized. The simplified trouble shooting circuits enable the spray operator to quickly determine the source of operational problems. It puts ease and simplicity into the operation of plasma spraying.
