lower powered laser
when I was using my chinese 10W laser hith the original board (Acan) the laser seemed stronger
than presently with my Mana SE . Now using T2laser...
Is there a remedy to this..?
@foodog What firmware are you using? If it's my Grbl 1.1e then laser max 255 is full power. If it is a 2 wire non-TTL laser you can also connect 12VDC directly to check the output power.
Sorry nube... how can I tell about the non-ttl laser
Just upgraded T2 last night when I opened the software..
It is the same laser just changed the board and software... used to be much brighter on full power.
Laser is pluged on to its own power supply as to not burn the board ( being 10W)
@foodog 10W? It's probably a 6W diode that is being over powered, so the life will be pretty poor and you may be seeing that.
TTL = 3 or 4 wires, non-TTL (older laser design) is only 2 wires.
