specified environment.

3 watt UV (355 nm) laser moduleDanger! This product should be integrated in the terminal equipment, and needs to use 12V power supply, supporting switching power supply for 220V input. High voltage danger. Beware of electric shock!
3 watt UV (355 nm) laser modulePrecaution! To prevent accidental exposure to laser or reflected laser, laser protective glasses with specific wavelength (355-1064nm) should be worn when using, maintaining and repairing the laser.
3 watt UV (355 nm) laser moduleDanger! The laser has enough energy to burn the skin. And in a certain distance, the laser can ignite the volatile substances, which may cause the explosion of volatile substances. It is forbidden to place inflammable and explosive dangerous goods in the laser processing area

and use volatile substances carefully.

3 watt UV (355 nm) laser moduleWarning! Visible or invisible laser emitted by laser can cause serious damage to eyes and skin and may cause blindness. Reflected, scattered and diffuse light are also dangerous. Please note: the human eye is not visible to the laser whose wavelength is beyond 400-700nm (visible). That is, the laser may actually exist,

but the human eye can not see the laser.

Introduction

Compared with IR lasers, the UV laser is directly breaking the chemical bond in materials. This process generates much less heat and separate matter into atom level, without destroying the environment. The UV laser has the advantages of short wavelength, easy focusing, small spot size, intense energy and high resolution. Because of its high processing accuracy, narrow line width, high quality and precision, small heat-affected area, good long-term stability, it can process various irregular patterns and heterogeneous patterns. It is mainly used in fine micro-processing, especially in high-quality drilling, cutting and grooving. It has been successfully applied in metals, semiconductors, ceramics, glass and a variety of polymer materials.

Seal-355-3E laser is all-solid-state UV lasers with end-pumped structure. Stable and compact resonator design makes high electro-optical conversion efficiency, good beam quality, high reliability, good consistency and maintenance-free operation. The new integrated structure design not only saves installation space for customers, but also greatly enhances the anti-interference ability of laser head. The introduction of a new optical cavity self-purification system greatly improves the service life of the laser.

Notice:

No matter whether you use our GUI to control the laser or not, you need to turn on the start button, shown in the following figure, when the connection lines of the laser and the external connection are finished. Otherwise, the Q-switch and pump can not work and the laser will not work either. When you want to turn off the laser, the start button needs to be pressed down again.

Laser control

Control mode

The output control of laser is mainly controlled by GATE signal, and the output frequency and power are controlled by PWM signal, mainly by changing the frequency cycle and duty cycle of PWM.

Duty ratio: the ratio of the high level holding time to the time of the clock cycle in the output PWM signal. For example, if the frequency of a PWM is 50KHZ, then its clock cycle is 20 mu s. If the time of high level is 6 mu s, then the time of low level is 14 mu s, then the duty cycle is 6:20, that is to say, the duty cycle of PWM is 3:10.

Our lasers are very reliable and powerful. We are ready to asssit you in our

At a certain frequency, the ADJUST = 100% corresponds to the high level of the laser PWM signal when it is 1us, which represents the maximum power, the minimum pulse width and the highest peak power at that frequency. Increasing the high level pulse width (i.e. reducing the ADJUST value), the power of the flat rate laser decreases and the optical pulse width increases.

Through the frequency and duty ratio of the PWM signal (the signal driven by Q), the frequency, power and pulse width of the optical pulse can be controlled.

Control timing

When the laser is in the external control mode, it could control the laser output, frequency and PWM (pulse width modulation) by external signal.

In order to control the laser, it needs the correct timing signal for control card. When the laser works, the GATE corresponds to the Laser and the TRIG corresponding to the PWM. Need the following timing.

* For the use of different boards, we have made transfer cards. Customers can get the timing required for laser control through transfer cards.

Convert card connection

Connect instruction

① Laser Control Interface of Marking Card Connected by Three Joints on the Left

② The right DB15 plug is connected to the corresponding interface of the laser head. Method:

3 watt UV (355 nm) laser module

Fig.13 Convert card

  1. Convert card VCC +5V to marking control card VCC +5V; convert card GND to marking control card GND.
  2. “Laser” on convert card means the input laser on signal is the same polarity as the GATE, “-L-a-s-er” means the input laser on signal is the converse polarity as the GATE. When the laser on signal to “laser”, use the short cap short circuit PIN2 and PIN3 of J1. When the laser on signal to “-L-a-s-er”, use the short cap short circuit PIN1 and PIN2 of J1.
  3. “PWM” on convert card means the input modulation signal is the same polarity as the TRIG, “ -P-W–M” means the input modulation signal is the converse polarity as the TRIG. When the modulation signal to “PWM”, use the short cap short circuit PIN2 and PIN3 of J2. When the modulation signal to “P–W–M”, use the short cap short circuit PIN1 and PIN2 of J2.
  4. “FPS” on convert card means the input first pulse killer signal is the same polarity as the FPS, “ -F-P-S- ” means the input first pulse killer signal is the converse polarity as the FPS. When the first pulse killer signal to “FPS”, use the short cap short circuit PIN2 and PIN3 of J3. When the first pulse killer signal to “F–P-S-”, use the short cap short circuit PIN1 and PIN2 of J3. When the FPS function is not enabling, please use jumper cap to connect 1,2 pins of J3

Operation

Boot procedure

  1. Connect chiller with laser water connector, lock tight.
  2. Turn on chiller and set temperature at 25℃ until it is stable at 25±0.5℃
  3. Check laser outlook condition. If any particle/sticker blocks output port, please remove it.
  4. Make sure laser controller and laser head properly connected, check if marking system and laser System been connected properly.
  5. Switch on 12V DC power supply, turn on the key switch (before operation, we must connect the control card and ensure that the card has been supplied to prevent laser damage). Confirm there is no abnormal indicator, and wait for the laser to get stable then we can use the laser to mark.
*When laser temperature abnormal, the protection will lock the laser, please check if chiller is running or the power cable is connected properly.

Shutdown procedure

1)Stop the processing. 2)Turn off key switch. 3)Turn off power supply. 4)Turn off the chiller.

Caution

  1. Wear Laser safety glasses all the time;
  2. Stop marking first, and then turn off the laser.
