Eleks laser fault

Post by Petejohn11 » Thu Jan 07, 2021 8:35 pm

Hi
I'd be greatfull for any help. i am using ts2 to run a Chinese benbox 2.5 w engraver, up until today all has been well, however when I switched on the 12v supply the laser came on at full power straight away and started burning. I have switched the unit on and off and have also tried with the USB unplugged but this makes no difference at all the laser is flat out as soon as the 12v is switched on. I have checked the voltage at the plug with it unplugged from the laser unit. I have 12v across the red and black wires and 0 v on the yellow signal wire. If I plug the unit back in I get a 5 v reading on the signal wire. Am I correct in thinking it is a fault with the laser unit itself ?.
