Upgrades For Red & Black Chinese Laser

Cloudray – AliExpress

 

I chose the RDC6445G Standard Kit – No Extra Power Supply Was required as I had a power supply in my existing machine that met the requirements for this new controller

I Chose The Ultimate Air Assist Kit – You will need some low voltage wire to complete the installation.

 I chose the 30mA model for my 80W machine, but either model will be ok – You will need some low voltage wire to complete the installation.
