Pwr Control

I cannot get lightburn to control my power…
I set the max power on the machine and set the differant powers needed to do a burn but lightburn will not accept the settings.
It burns what i have set on the machine//


Hi James,

Please provide clear pictures of your machine, control panel, board, other electrical components, and wiring. We need to see how and where everything is connected.

Thank you for the photos, James.

What are you setting your digital panel at when doing your tests?

If you are setting it too high (max), you could overdrive your tube and shorten its lifespan. It would be helpful to know how many mA your tube is using at the percentage you are setting it at, so we recommend installing an ammeter. There is a link included for PWM control in that article, which is also relevant.

What are you setting the layers at in LightBurn? Can you double click to open the layer settings and provide screenshots (no cell phone pics, please) of the entire LightBurn window for the file you are working with?
