I need help converting full spectrum 2436 to ruida controller please

I have a 2016 model full spectrum pro2436 laser that I would like to convert to use Lightburn with a Ruida controller. Has anyone been successful doing this?

Probably has been done… All of these use the same control signals… Some controllers are pretty much a swap out using the original connectors…

Which Ruida controller are you going to use?

The Ruida controller usually doesn’t come with the vendor information, it’s just a plain controller. Vendor is put in by whomever built your machine or it’s vendor…

If possible read that information out of the original controller, save it so you can put it in the new controller.

This might be an informative read

Good luck

I don’t know about the controller. I am really new at this…I am hoping others have done this. Thanks for the read, I will research it.

Just swapped out the BeagleBone Green controller from a Full Spectrum 36x24 Pro (2018?) Unit. Upgraded to the Rudia RD6445S/G. The easier part was the wiring, and adding a power supply. The harder part was configuring the controller and steppers in the controller. I crated the config backups from the RDWorks software if anyone wants a copy of the config let me know- this will get most people a starting point. You really should do proper calibration on your machine, cause who knows if they switched out stepper Motors/drivers depending on the batch run for that year. But using this machine with Light Burn is amazing! I hit start, and the machine jumps into action. With Retine Engrage, I always had to wish/hope the job didn’t crash or that it would even start.
