Hey Everyone, I’ve heard some general comments about USB serial data connections being finicky and dropping out, but I have not seen any suggestions on how to address the issue.
I’ve had two jobs fail on my Eleksmaker 2.5w diode laser recently because the laser lost connection in the middle of the job and reset. I assume this is due to some kind of electrical interference. One time happened when the motor on my Harbor Freight airbrush compressor (my air assist) cycled on and off… and the second when I plugged a cell phone power charger into the powerstrip that was on the same outlet as the PC, but not the same powerstrip as the PC (using a UPS for the PC to guard against power outages).
Can anyone direct me to some knowledge on this topic? I’m apparently not googling this with the right search terms. I need this laser to keep working whether or not I have to plug or unplug something else in the shop!
