This command immediately turns on the laser engraving PWM output at the level specified by the S command.
This command is used where the laser needs to turn on at a specified location to drill a hole or for applications like spot welding
Syntax & Parameters
- M04 - Laser on can be used or without S value.
- M4 - The same as M04
- S - The S value can be 0 to 1000 and defines the PWM power level of 0 to 100%. If the S value is not given then the last S value is automatically used.
