Does lightburn controller control k40 power

(Darren Hawkes) #1

Will lightburn controller the power on my k40

I have the c3d fitted and going but I can’t figure out the power and scan gap

LightBurn will tell the C3D what power and speed to use, and ‘Scan Gap’ is called Interval (or DPI) in LightBurn.

Are you still having this issue? I notice this post is over a week old, but you haven’t gotten a reply yet.

What I meant to ask was do I set the k40 power controller to full and set the power in lightburn to say 5% for 3 / 5 ma

This is covered in a power control article under FAQ in the C3D Forum.

You set the laser to 12 to 15ma when you press the test button, then use LightBurn to control a percentage of that. Don’t set the laser to max power on the panel itself ‘cause it can damage the tube - stay under 15ma and the tube will last longer.
