General Mach Discussion / Re: Mach3, Opt Laser 5W and Aspire
« on: February 24, 2021, 12:50:04 PM »
When I run some gcode I get 4.95v between pin 3 & 4 with it wired pin 8 10k resistor from 5v to pin 8 on bob
that's like it should be M11P1 is switching Output and Output gives the 5v to Enable Input 1.
so Mach3 and Output are OK, but laser is not turning ON.

so maybe contacting

contact@optlasers.com

would be an Option, for the Moment i can't see, what we are doing wrong.

4.95v Between pin 3 & 4
but laser is not turning ON?
Mode2?

pls check the voltage between Pin3 and 4 when the 5V are connected.

this Manual (https://optlasersgrav.com/index.php?controller=attachment&id_attachment=56)
say's Mode 2 will enable Laser with Input 1 High
and on page 20/21 Hight Level is from 3-24V so for the Moment i have no answer why it's not
starting if you put 5V to terminal 3 (after M2 S1000)

maybe Manual is wrong.

step by step:

-put it back to mode 2, witch should enable laser beam by using input1
-MDI M3 S1000 -> beam should stay off
-measure with between GND and input1 (input1 disconnected)
-if you measure the 4.9v make link from Input 1 to  GND

so with a M3 S1000 the laser beam itselv should stay off now?
and if you put 5V with a wire from your BOB to the enable Input 1 (terminal 3) it should turn on?

ok small correction:

you will Need a 10k pullup resistor connected between 5v and pin8 at bob.

ok that means we have General power control from laser with S command.

next step would be to get ON/OFF control via Output (M10/M11)

if i look to this Manual:
https://optlasersgrav.com/index.php?controller=attachment&id_attachment=56

there are two Enable Inputs listed on the Interface.

on page 29 is descibed

How to Check Enable Option in PLH3D-CNC Adapter

can you pls do this check?

then you have to set enable Options like described on page 30

mode 2 (mode description page27) should be the right one.
then you Need to connect port1 pin8 to enable input1 (terminal 3), and the you should
have ON/OFF control via M10P1/M11P1

did you do the test with MDI?
