Manual Laser Pulse Unit

In the video I show two methods of making a manual pulse button for the Co2 Laser, to enable you to pluse the laser for mirror alignment without needing to pulse from the Laser Control Panel.  This allows for quicker alignment and less walking around the laser machine.

IMPORTANT: Proper safety precautions should be used including Protective Eye Glasses when using the Co2 Laser Machine.

DISCLAIMER: The producer of this video under no circumstances can be found liable for negligence by a viewer if they are seriously injured, dies or suffers damage to their property after acting upon or using the content contained in this video production.  Any person/s acting on information contained in this video do so at their own risk. The viewer also acknowledges they must follow all local and national laws and regulations when performing any work described in this video production. MAINS POWER CONNECTIONS MUST ONLY BE INSTALLED BY A LICENSED PROFESSIONAL.

The 1st Method shown uses a potentiometer, enabling you to safely set the laser power to low milliamps for mirror alignment, and also features a safety switch to disable the momentary switch to prevent accidental pulsing of the laser tube.

The 2nd method only provides 100% laser power and does not include a safety protection switch.  Extreme care should be taken when using this method, and MW Laser will not be held liable for any personal injury or equipment failure or damage.
