Machine: _ full spectrum laser_
Board: Cohesion3d LaserBoard v1.0
Firmware: _ "I have a new board and I’m using whatever it came with!_
Problem/ Question: I have everything hooked up and I can move the gantry home etc, but the last problem is getting the laser to fire.
I have been doing a lot of reading and I get how it’s supposed to be hooked up but I think my laser power supply has different pinouts from the standard pinout I see online. (The power supply has absolutely no markings identifying the pins)
Laser Power Supply Model from label: MY JG80W EKR0421
Standard pinout from web:
-Test button on the power supply does fire the laser.
-Grounding the 5v and hooking up the yellow wire to laser fire on the smoothie board causes the laser to fire weakly (I did this by accident following connection diagrams on the web) (the green light also glows dimly)
Has anyone come across this before or have any troubleshooting ideas?
