I have the same laser and Eleksmaker board.
Have you been able to make this work?  My laser is always on.

I had a spare board ordered but got the wrong one.
Could therefore not try the connection because if it fails I have nothing anymore.
I think I have bought something that i can't use with this board.
The biggest problem is according to me the speech confusion and the explanation of the sellers in china

There are several posts with the connection details, but yes you can use that with the Eleks Mana board.

Hi zax. I have this question also at the forum in eleks maker but no solutions.
Maybe like ....... ?
But no one who knows how the wiring?  Only suggestions.
I have paid for the t2 but i cannot test the 15w laser with no wiring.

Connect the power supply directly to the input +/- and then connect the Mana board S-pin to the TTL input.

If your Mana is powered with a separate power supply (not a splitter) then you will need to connect the Mana - (ground) to the laser driver - (ground).
