Laser power supply question - input defintions

Postby Ischcuch » Sat Jun 22, 2013 10:26 pm

Can anyone please provide me with a link or some detail on what the connectors are for?

what i have gained so far:

+5V DC: ?
Input: ?
Ground: Ground for water pump flow sensor
Water pump: + voltage (v?) to water pump flow sensor
Level low: ?
Level high: Signal that activates laser beam

Thanks in advance.

Ok, after some digging I have come to the following conclusion:

Level high can be used for the input signal in two ways:

1 pwm: square wave digital signal for power control. No other connections are required except for cooling interlock.

2 analogue: level high +5v provides on / off signal and a pot wired between 5v and input provides analogue power control when the on signal is active.

Am I on the right track? Any help will be appreciated.
