PWM Control of Laser
« on: March 01, 2017, 04:55:37 PM »
I got the laser install working with simple on / off, but now I want to get PWM functions to work.. I don't completely understand how PWM is supposed to be configured, I followed the instructions on the JTEC site to get it configured, but I do not think it is working right.. as when i enter M3 s1 I am still getting a high powered laser.

For some reason I could only upload 4 screenshots.. so i removed them and put everything in google drive and shared them below..

This is all my setting, that i think are required to enable PWM.. Thanks for the help.. Also in its current state the Laser does turn on / off with the M3 / M5 commands from MDI  / gcode, but in gcode i use the M11p and M10p commands to remove the delay..
