Connection to your board

Wiring Endurance lasers to TOP popular boards


Connecting the laser to the main board of you machine is very easy.

An option without Endurance MO1 PCB:

TTL*+ (small wire) connects to PWM pinout (if there is no PWM then connect TTL to 12V+ power supply.
The laser connects directly to your mainboard (Fan, Spindle)

An option with Endurance MO1 PCB:

TTL+ (small wire) connects to PWM pinout (if there is no PWM then connect TTL to 12V output on Endurance MO1 PCB
An Endurance MO1 PCB connects to: laser & external power supply & controlling pins (+ & GND)

Control the laser

The laser can be turned on of using different commands such as M03 / M05 or M11 / M12, depending on your board.
Laser power can be changed using the S parameter or L parameter, depending on your board.

*TTL works out of 1-12V and changes the duty ratio of the MOSFET which changes power.
Voltage does not matter. Type of signal matters. (Learn more about TTL signal).

Endurance lasers with MillRight CNC machines

Before connecting the laser please read the manual of your controller (mother) board first.
All controller (main) boards have power output for fans, lasers, spindles, etc..
You need to find 12V output and a ground.

How to connect the laser to 3D printers and CNC machines
If you already found 12V output – make sure that I have enough amperage capacity. For different types of lasers, you need different amperage. You may require from 2 up to 6 amps capacity.

Never connect the laser if there is only 12V and 1A output o less. That will simply burn this output.
If the laser you choose requires more power then you have, then you need Endurance MO1 PCB.

If you want to use TTL to turn on / off the laser – it should be connected to PWM output. Usually, it is 0-12V output (does not matter)
If you do not have PWM (like most 3D printers), simply connect TTL (small wire) with 12V+ (the same output that goes to the laser)
