I’ve been using my Shapeoko for around a year now without having any issues at all, but i’ve recently been doing some processes where i have a need to blow air as i’m cutting.
Unfortunately when my compressor starts up, it sometimes trips the control board, causing the machine to stop instantly, and require a reset.
I was just wondering if anyone could suggest an easy fix for this. I’m in a location where i don’t really have the option of utilising separate mains circuits - so i was hoping that there may be some kind of device i could plug in between the compressor and mains to mitigate spikes and surges, or alternatively, whether i should consider upgrading the psu to the Shapeoko to increase resilience.
As i said, i’ve never had any real problems with the machine before, so i don’t think this is related to interference, missed steps, or anything technical. The machine just stops dead, and vanishes from the control software without any messages, so i think it is just a power disruption.
I’m in the UK so i’m using 230v 60hz AC.
Any suggestions would be appreciated…
