Finally got around to hooking up my laser to my big compressor. The way I understand it, you wire hot to 24v and ground to the “wind” pin. When air assist is enabled on the layer, it’s supposed to connect that pin to ground, completing the circuit and opening the solenoid…
I’ve got something completely weird going on though…
My multimeter is reading about 22v with the machine idle, and then drops to a out 20v when running. It should be going from zero at idle to roughly 24v when cutting, shouldnt it?
The other weird part is, even at idle with those 22v, it’s not enough to trigger the solenoid. But if I move the wire from “wind” to ground, it has no issues triggering the solenoid.
I’ve tried leaving the machine unplugged overnight. I’ve cycled the air assist option and ran a cut, just in case the controller was stuck in some kind of loop (had it happen with rotary enable before). As a last resort, I reset the machine back to factory parameters… no change. The only thing I can think is that my controller’s gone out.
Any one ever experience anything like this?
