I just got my X-Carve cnc machine with the Dewalt 611 router as a spindle. It has been amazing so far. Any issues that I have had, I figured out, with little loss of stock.
However, I am having an issue with running other tools while I run my CNC machine. My whole shop shares a 30A breaker, which means it should have no issues running my dust collector, cnc machine, and another pretty high-draw tool without tripping. However, the sudden changes in power draw are causing my cnc controller to have issues. The router spindle will just shut off and come back on, and the controller will just turn off and on as well, but the laptop wont recognize it until I turn the controller back off and on again.
I am thinking of getting an uninterruptible power supply for the CNC machine. The Dewalt 611 is only 7 amps. The x controller is 400w, so I assume maybe 3.5A.
Does this mean that I need a UPS with that much Amperage/Wattage rating? Or can I get something with less if it just needs to smooth out bumps in power caused by me using other tools? Would this likely fix my problem? Is it worth it? Any recommendations?
