About laser driver & laser control board


A laser driver is one of the most important components in the laser module. The laser driver controls the voltage and the current that goes to the laser diode itself. It is important so that the laser driver sets and keeps the voltage and the current stable. It keeps the laser diode safe. Also the laser dirver turns on/off both lasers at the same time.

We add a Zener diode as an additional laser diode protection.

TTL wires (PWM) are also added to the laser driver. With a TTL (PWM) you may change the laser power (duty ratio) in the range of 3.5V to 12V For 20-watt laser module we use special tuned and set-up two step down (buck) DC/DC converters with a current stabilizer on board. A buck converter (step-down converter) is a DC-to-DC power converter which steps down voltage (while stepping up current) from its input (supply) to its output (laser diode).

All Endurance driver/laser control boards are very reliable and been tested before shipment.

What is so great about the Endurance 20 laser?

  • The first such powerful unit on the market
  • New fashion design
  • Portable
  • Compatible with many 3D printers / CNC mills.
  • Easy to install and mount
  • Advanced electonic components

AC/DC 12V 1A
an additional power supply for the fans.
Endurance laser box x2
is a nice gadget (add-on) for your laser module to measure incoming voltage, outcoming voltage and current on a laser diode, laser driver module, Endurance MO1 PCB, temperature sensor and Arduino board for changing laser power.
Air pump
laser addition that allows blowing the air to the place of laser cutting / laser engraving. Increases speed of a laser cutting up to 50% and reduce charring.
The laser does not work
Please, check the power adapter’s (voltage & current) performance. Connect the TTL wire to the 12V+ to test if the laser is working. It should work full power. Watch this video.
The laser works full power but the laser power cannot be changed
Please check the g-code parameters (S / L) used for the pin to change the power. Either your PWM does not change the duty ratio or the contact of any of the laser connectors (if you run without TTL) is broken. Check with the voltmeter and ammeter if the voltage on this pin changes. Watch a video about TTL signal. Arduino with TTL.
I did everything as described but the laser does not work
We need to see a detailed photo and video of what you have done to help you with further steps.
Sometimes 13N10 or LM338 die and need to be replaced. We will guide you how to do that.
Endurance MO1 PCB does not work
The Endurance MO1 PCB is a quite a simple circuit and works pretty stable, however, there is a simple way to check it out. (described on this page + video guidance)
How do I find a proper pin to connect the laser?
We provide an ultimate guidance and tutorials. The laser is usually connected to the fan output on 3D printers or spindle output on CNC machines or can be connected to any other pin that is controllable, such as: D11 on the Arduino Nano. Detailed pinouts you may find here.
The laser lost its power.
The probability that this might happen is 5%. It might happen due to overheating. Avoid the laser diode and laser control board overheating. Check the temperature of the heatsink or laser driver. They must not be VERY hot (if you can touch these elements and hold on – it means that the temperature is less than 70C). If the temperature rises too high we can guide you how to reduce the voltage going to the laser diode and causing the loss of power.
I am trying to cut 3-5mm plywood using the laser, however I still did not manage to cut it with a single pass. Please assist
0. use a G-2 lens for laser cutting.
1. setup a perfect focus on a G-2 lens (make sure that focal range is something like 4-8 mm)
2. make sure that a plywood is very dry (you may use a 3D printer bed to warm it up)
3. speed parameters should be 50-150 in your g-code
4. make sure that the plywood is not specially treated with anti-inflammable materials
5. make sure that the laser runs full power and you have enough power that goes to the laser
6. make sure that the lens is clean and has no dust on it.

About

Endurance presents a 20-watt double beam diode solid-state laser attachment for 3D printers and CNC machines.
The uniqueness of the product is that we focus two combined beams at one spot doubling the laser power.

The 20-watt laser attachment consists of 2 x 10-watt modules installed on one aluminum flexible plate.

By focusing two combined beams at one spot you get a higher power & temperature to speed up cutting, engraving and engrave on metallic surfaces without additional chemicals.

An Endurance 20 watt semiconductor laser add-on device is one of the most powerful units on the market with 445 nm wavelength and relatively small sizes enabling easy installation on almost any 3D printer and CNC router.

2 x 10-watt lasers are aimed at one spot by adjusting the laser direction over X & Z axes using M6 and M4 screws on the aluminum plate which holds both lasers very tightly.

The Endurance 20-watt laser addition consists of:

  • 2 x 10-watt laser modules
  • An aluminum plate to hold the lasers
  • A laser box (x2) [one sensor for each laser]
