My warehouse and demo room is pretty much ready for the public and I'm going to provide in store laser machine lease program. Now a customer can come to my shop to use the laser machine charged by minute. To be fair, I charge only when the laser tube is firing. So, how do I do it?

Well, after spending a few hrs playing with my Q484S timer, I finally make it possible. What I need to do is to install relay as triggering to the timer from the output of AWC608 DSP mainboard . FYI, AWC608 has to output modes: 1) Activated when XY start moving 2) Activated only laser is firing

Timer: ... -P464.aspx

To make thing easier, I have ordered DC24V relay break-out board and one can connect it direct to the AWC608 DSP controller on OUT1 or OUT2 board where output 0V level low signal. With this relay board, one can use it for the timer purpose or one can use it to control a air-pump. I'll test the board once arrived and I'll post more info here and on my support forum
