Delay Start Printing
I have a farm with 9 printers.
Today I m noticed burning smell in my garage.
One of my Sonoff Pow2 to measure current are burning at wires contact.
I m awarenes off this problem but I have measured the consumption of six printers connected to the same line starting at the same time 12A Max for a few secconds and the device is rated to 15A.
After this introduction we get to the point.
A functionality that delays / limits the start of several jobs at the same time would be very useful.
This would decrease the peak current draw that occurs mainly when heating the bed. When the machines are in regime they consume only 20% of that load.
Maybe some option to start only 2 jobs every 1 minute or something like that would be enough.
I think that would be the easiest way out. Something more complex would be to limit the simultaneous preheating but I don't think it is necessary.
Normally, when starting jobs manually, this problem would not be so bad, since a few seconds of delay are generated until all printers start printing, but when being able to send a job en masse, the power lines suffer.
What you tink about that?
It is a security feature that no software currently has on the market.
