This is worth review. Check to ensure the ‘S-value max’ (‘Device Settings’) value and you $30 match, and check here in the document below. “if you ask the controller to go faster than it’s allowed to, it will reduce the output power to compensate”.

Your maximum machine speed is set to 500 mm/minute, which is about 8.3 mm/sec. If you attempt to go faster, it won’t, but it will lower the power for you to give you the exact amount of burn you requested.

LaserGRBL by default uses ‘constant power’ mode, which is the same as LightBurn’s ‘GRBL-M3’ device. If you use that, it will give you full power even when you ask for impossible speeds, but it will cause different problems, so you are much better off working within the range of settings your machine allows.
