Detailed guidance of how to connect the Endurance lasers

When you get Endurance lasers or you are about to place an order – here we explain and guide you about what you need to know before getting started with Endurance lasers.

How to connect the laser to 3D printers and CNC machines

Mount

Endurance lasers are quite universal and can be installed on any 3D printer and CNC machine.
We suggest to use mounts like this: П L I T shapes.
laser hook
laser mounts
If you need a mounting pack, please select while placing an order.
Mounting pack includes 4 different typycal connectors that you might need to hook up the laser.

Electronics

Intro video of connecting and running the laser with Endurance MO1 PCB and without it

Endurance has a laser driver that is inside the metal housing (please do not go their unless you have permission from us and you know what to do).

All Endurance lasers have TTL+ output. TTL can be controlled with 3-12V output. Usually it connects with PWM output on your main board (CNC machine, or engraving machine).

If you do not have a PWM (like most 3D printers), then just connect the TTL wire with the 12V input of the laser . It will power the laser to turn it on and off.

Laser power supply

All Endurance lasers work from 9 – 16V.
If you have 24V power output on your 3D printer or CNC router – let us know and we will ship you step-down “buck” DC/DC converter.
For 2.1 watt / 3.5 watt / 5.6 watt / 8 watt/ 8.5 watt you do not need an external power supply if you do not use Endurance MO1 PCB.
10 watt, 10 watt+ laser require additional power supply to run the laser and a power supply to run fans.
Also 10 watt+ requires 12V 5A power supply for TEC cooling.

Getting started with Endurance lasers

Endurance lasers work out of 9-12V and require different amperage (total):

2.1 watt – requires 2 amps. (external power supply is required only if you use Endurance MO1 PCB).
3.5 watt – requires 2-3 amps. (external power supply is required only if you use Endurance MO1 PCB).
5.6 watt – requires 3-4 amps. (external power supply is required only if you use Endurance MO1 PCB).
8 watt – requires 4-5 amps. (external power supply is required only if you use Endurance MO1 PCB).
8.5 watt+ – require 5-6 amps. (external power supply is required only if you use Endurance MO1 PCB).
10 watt – requires 6-7 amps. (external power supply is required for the laser + for the fans).
10 watt+ – requires 10 amps. (external power supply is required for the laser + for the fans + TEC cooling).

Please check with your power adapter and power output. They should have at least +1-2 amps more from their max output. If you run your power adapter and your control board on a maximum output it can cause damage and overheating. Be careful with that!
You power adapters should always stay cold.

Where is positive and negative in the laser jack?

We use standard positive polarity like this

Endurance MO1 board

When do you need an Endurance MO1 PCB?

You need an Endurance MO1 PCB in case your main (control board) does not have enough amperage output.

TTL white wire is connected to input 12V power (red one)

Endurance MO1 PCB allows to have an external power supply to feed the laser while you are keep using your existing power output to just turn on and off the laser.
We suggest to use it if you are not confident with your pin power output.

You have 3 pairs of cables:
First pair goes to the laser.
Second pair goes to the external power supply.
Third paid (the tiniest one) goes to your existing control (main) board.
