Congratulations on the success. When I read that you had thrown your hands up and quit over a power supply, I thought that maybe the August heat got to you. I could not believe that your embedded hardware and software Fu could be beat by a lowly power supply!
I’ve been out of town the last several days, and had to pause progress.
Back to testing (at least for a couple days, then I am headed out of town for another 10 days)…
I definitely have a power supply issue, though it will probably take some extensive testing to get to the bottom of it.
It will run at full power and reduced power for varying amounts of time before the lights blink and the unit resets. This only seems to happen when the laser is switched on at a set power level for intermittent periods. The test file I run is doing about a 70% duty cycle, and it will run anywhere from 5 to 15 seconds before it bites it.
