New laser and tube, seem to be underpowered.
analog milliammeter reads a max of 5mA on a scale of 30
tested with potentiometer set at max, min, and in between values.
lower values on potentiometer lowers ammeter value, higher values, and even mid values max out at 5mA
tested using laser “test” button on the LPSU, as well as a momentary push button wired to ‘L’ & ‘P’ terminals
LPSU is 80W
attempts at trying to cut material, prove to me its power is being limited, and not a simple malfunction of the ammeter.
what could cause the laser to be so weak?
long wire runs?
wrong gauge wires?
ill include a wiring diagram.
