    hypertherm powermax 85

    I just started a new job and they have used apm 85, the Forman med up an extension cord to connect it to the lincoln welder. it worked well for about 20 minutes then it quit and showed a code 99. I checked the cords and found it was connected to a single phase outlet. I redid the wires in the cutter to single phase but it still is displayin a code 99

    There are no "reconnections" in a Powermax85 for single phase....it is an auto link system that runs on any voltage between 200 VAC and 600 VAC, either single or 3 phase. I suggest contacting Hypertherm technical service for help. 1 800 643 9878 or technical.service@hypertherm.com Jim Colt Hypertherm

    There are no links to change voltage. For single phase use connections L1 and L2, for three phase use three wires, L1, L2, L3. So the only change from three phase to single phase is to cut off the L3 (red wire on the factory pigtail) if you want to.

    Regardless....if you have an 0-99 code I suggest contacting tech support.....probably is a low voltage condition from the generator, but they can help troubleshoot.
