50w Chinese laser tube maxed at 30ma

Hey, does anyone know why my cutter is maxing out at 30ma at 100% I thought around 20ma was the tap put for these tubes. I did a test of ten lines at 100speed and power from 10-100%. I have a video of my meter but I can’t upload it.

Well, because… China.

Yes, about 20mA is the maximum current for a 50 watt tube. You need to find out what percent power gives maximum current for your tube and don’t run it higher than that .For my 80 watt tube, about 65% is as high as I can go for good life.
