ems headache

Posted by g-star on 09/14/09


i finally got my ems 300 and to be honest it's great but has given me a bit of a headache.
i had my solution working real nice, you know big long stroke and when you look at the a-bar its floating up and down, i loved working with it this way.
but the ems says it runs at 40% duty when i was lead to believe 50% was the best duty to run by.
now has my machine been running wrong and ive just adapted to using it or are those numbers on the front not that important.?

While those numbers can be a blessing, they also can be a curse. Don't get too hung up on them. You will drive yourself crazy chasing down the perfect numbers.
What I found works best is use them as a baseline for each individual machine.

For example, my micky sharpz tdial runs at 37% and it puts ink in the way I like it. Whenever I tune any tdial I own, it is set up near the 37 to 40 range. However I would never tune my next generation to that. More like 45 to 50%. And each machine design seems to have sweet spots. When you have a machine working great, just write down the numbers, then in the future tune to those .
If your pulse was working well at the range you mentioned why change? Its been a while since I've used my solution , but if memory serves me correct the numbers you mentioned seem close to what I ran. Also a long stroke machine will produce a lower % than mid or short stroke machines.

don't get hung on numbers. Instinct and experience can NEVER be replaced by technology. If it aint fuckin broke,,, don't fuckin' fix it. God Bless

yeah dude a solution is almost impossible to get to run with 18 and 18 with a high duty cycle with out it running like shit if you got yours in the 40s thats actually pretty high most run fine in the 30s and is the reason a lot of people run the solution at such high voltage if you put 20 and 20 its much easier to tune with a high duty 50 is crazy for any pulse machine
