Apparently the planer shut off in the middle of a cut and the badge reader had no lights and wasn’t beeping. It was already disassembled and bypassed when I first saw it so I didn’t get to witness the fault myself, but @Kevin and maybe @shoottx saw it first-hand.
I took the interlock to electronics and bench tested it and couldn’t find any problems so I reinstalled it on the planer and magically it’s working again. Maybe there was a loose wire somewhere, but that’s just rampant speculation.
Anyway I’m just posting this for documentation in case it happens again or if @Robert_Davidson wants to investigate further.
Oh and I just remembered the one thing I didn’t test is whether the current transformer keeps the interlock from timing out while the motor is running.
