Lower ma reading on higher power setting

lightburn software tells me i have set at 95% power but laser ma is no more than 10 to 12ma. Went back to Ruida software and used same settings… The ma meter went to 37 to 40ma. Also the lightburn settings did not cut the project and the Ruida software had no problem.The laser console tells me i am at correct speed and power using both softwares.

Something is not right here, they both control the laser in the same way.

If lightburn is set for 80% pwm, then it will generate 80% pwm from the controller.

How powerful is your laser? 40mA is a lot of current…

Something else is going on… I’m just trying to think of what… :thinking:

Are you confirming it’s the same on the run display with all the layers ?
