Gah! I'm such an idiot. I don't have a cyonics uniphase, mine is an Omnichrome. I have no idea why I said that. I must have been out of it.
I read up on sam's laser FAQ how to change mine to current control mode, I opened up the power supply and jumpered the right pins, but it doesn't work. The control knob does nothing and tube is stuck at 6 amps. I triple checked that I did it right and even triple checked that sams pinouts were correct. I don't know much about power supplies, and I'm not going to start poking around in there to find out whats wrong with the current drive circuit. There is a capacitor bank the size of my face in there, and considering I only narrowly escaped death by capacitor bank before, I'm not going to even try.
On a more dissapointing note, I used the remote pinout to get a reading on my tube current. Looks like it's running at just over 10 amps already when I max the knob. 10 amps and only 40mW or so. I re-aligned the mirrors only last month, so I guess my tube is nearing the end of its life. :'(
Oh, and I had the 20 amp circuit installed as a favor by a friend. I only paid the cost of materials, so I can't guess how much it would actually be.
