I had the Ultimate Air Assist connected to my laser for a few weeks. Loved it.
I was hoping to allow the relay to stay open for 30 - 60 seconds after I ran a job, so that the exhaust and air assist could clear out, by adding a large capacitor to the relay. Worked like a charm.
However, I must have done something wrong, because now the voltage from the status and 24v wires to the relay remain powered at 12v, with or without the capacitor, and so the relay will not de-energize.
Before a run, I measure 0v from the Status to Ground, and 24v from Wind to Ground. Then when I do a run, and it ends. I get 12v from Status to 24v pin, and 12v from Wind to Ground.
Yes, I had the diodes connected correctly, but I don’t know if they got damaged while I was fiddling, and the damage was done, and now a diode won’t matter.
Any advice would help greatly.
