Plasma consumable monitoring - Pierce counter and Arc On timer

It would be really useful to track consumable life if Masso could count pierces and if possible, arc on time. I've had this requested as part of this retrofit as the consumables have a life expectancy of 500-1000 pierces depending on material thickness.

great input @derekmccoy

we are in the process of redoing a lot of things in the Plasma version to add more features and this will be a great addition, thanks for sharing your ideas.

I agree this would be very nice. also include an easy on screen way to reset the counter when either a tip or electrode is changed. With the hardware I use, I change the tip 3 times more often than the electrode. I have a counter built into my post processor but that requires me to write things down all the time and frankly I forget too often.
