Problems setting up a 2.5W Diode Laser with Protoneer

Post by JoeBrouhard » Thu Dec 27, 2018 10:34 am

So i have been having an issue getting my LED Diode laser To function with protoneer.

based on what i've read online, and on the wiki, I'm supposed to plug the laser into the PWM controls on the protoneer, which relate to the Spindle_EN and GND pins.

however, when i turn spindle on in bCNC and set it to like 1000 it does not do anything. I haven't been able to check what voltage is going through due to the fact my voltmeter decided to ultimately kill itself (battery died on me.. I don't have a spare for now).

Do i actually have this wired right ? laser diode -> Laser control board -> PWM/GND pins ??
