I’m awaiting delivery of a new 100-watt CO2 laser with a Ruida controller. Until now I’ve used diode lasers mounted on my CNC. My question is about control wiring.
On a diode laser, power is supplied to the driver from a discrete power supply. The laser connects to the driver and a control signal is sent to the driver from the controller through two wires.
Is the control setup the same with a CO2? Obviously the laser has its own power supply. I know the controller also controls motion, but does it have two wires that control the laser output?
