RE: Continuous laser burn times
Odds are thats correct, if i wire it up to a 12 volt source reversed, "neg to positive", power it then wire it correctly, "positive to positive" it fires up once. As soon as i kill the power i need to rewire it backward again. Im gonna order a updated board "Mana 3" and a newer 2.5watt that has the driver on top. I need it to soon to wait on the 2.5 watt blue aluminum elekslaser to come from china.
The old one only had power going to the laser unit and no ttl.
On a side note the old board, drivers or such make a high pitched whine or screech when fired up, is that normal ?
Continuous laser burn times
Hey guy's just went to run a test on some birch rounds and found my 2.5watt laser was kinda shot. Last thing i burnt was aprox 2.5 hours continuously. I once did a burn that was well onto 4 hours on the original 1.5watt so i didnt think continuously buring was an issue.
Troubleshooting the laser i can get it to fire up on 12 volts if i wire it up backwards for a second then wire it normal andpower it up. But as soon as i cut power and turn it on again ot fails to power on.
Going with a diffeent setup from banggood. New board and laser.
