Question: Hey I finally got around to installing the Laserboard and gCLD controller on my K40, took literally 10 mins, awesome! I’ve only added air assist and a bed before this so i’m a little hesitant tinkering with the wiring…
Everything works great, Thanks so much! just a couple of questions moving forwards:
Firstly I hadn’t got around to adding a lid switch before, I ordered one from you with my board although it came with two pin connector so was wondering if there is an interlock feature (and where do i connect) or should I be cutting the end off and wiring it into pins 5 & 6 or something on the PSU?
Secondly, I got a little excited and made the face plate adding the power switch before I had read the install instructions,and seeing the 24v out is now not used, doh! is there anyway I can turn off the Laserboard with the switch instead of at the plug? and also this switch seems to disconnect the 5v (pin 13), Everything still seems to work without it, should it stay connected or can it be left out?
Lastly (bonus question), I originally had the digital display control, based on what i understand of the PSU pin out, it was receiving pin 7 (laser test fire), 8 (Gnd), 9 & 10 Pot) yet it had the ability to turn the laser on and off. just wondering how this works because it seems happy whether these are connected or not.
