Router will not auto start with program

Postby Davisric » Tue Jul 17, 2018 3:36 pm

Just got a new HD4 with a DeWalt DW618 router. When I run a program the the router will not auto start. I've plugged a light into the outlet for the router and it works fine. Any ideas of what could causing

I had the same problem when I set mine up several years ago. I had my controller plugged into a computer battery back (APC) to prevent a shut down in the event of power loss. Well after testing I found that the battery backup will not provide enough amps to spin up the router and the system would shut down. I plugged into a surge protector and all is well. My Bosch router needs extra amps for startup. Most powerful routers need the same.
