connecting laser
« on: May 28, 2020, 02:50:11 AM »
Good Morning,
I just received my new Eleksmaker 2.5w laser and can't figure out how to connect it. The Eleksmaker Mana has a 3 prong connector for the laser and the laser has the same connection. My problem is there is no connection for the power supply (the module that came with the laser) with 3 wires. No voltage rated and no place to connect it. See attached photo. I don't want to screw it up.
Thanks for any help.
Paul

Power it up like that and say goodbye to the laser driver board, the wires are reversed.

They are marked.

+ is Vcc (always red)
- is GND (usually black, yours appears blue)
S is TTL/PWM (usually yellow)
