New OMTech 80W Laser, Cant Connect to Lightburn

Hey Guys, i’ve just received my new OMTech Laser. It’s an 80W Co2 with Ruida Controller.

Actually, i cant really tell you which controller it it, because i’m still playing around with the menu and all the Stuff which is a little confusing at all right now.

I’ve just bought the DSP Licence Key and activated my Lightburn Version (Latest Version).

I installed the FTDI and my Device Manager says everything is working perfectly. Its connected to Port COM5.

Lightburn recognizes the COM5 but cant find my laser. It says Waiting for connection.

The USB-Cable is for sure plugged in to the Laser USB Plug which says USB to PC.

The Laser is turned on.

@LightBurn any help please?

We’ve had some communication issues with the latest release. I’m about to release 0.9.23, which will hopefully address all of this. If you’re still having trouble with it after that, install 0.9.20 from the release archive (linked at the bottom of our download page), and follow up here so we know.

@LightBurn TY for the response.

Nevermind. The 0.9.20 fixed the issue. The Laser wasnt found automatically so i added it through “Create Manually” and found the Ruida Controller which was now available.

Thank You :slight_smile:

BTW: When exactly will the 0.9.23 be released?

We normally do not provide date-certain release information. This is software and stuff occurs. The release Oz mentions is imminent, but the best we usually offer is, “soon-ish”, when we get close to releasing. :wink:

In this case, I actually meant pretty much “right now” - I’m typing up the release notes as we speak.

Well, Oz can say what he wants, when he wants, so yes, what he said. Privilege of being the guy who started all this LightBurn fun! :wink:
