    @pedrofernandez - thanks for your willingness to assist. I have a few of these lying around in my electronics parts bin. Would love to see your suggestion. Thanks

    While I am on this laser topic, one of my goals is to use laser to engrave/cut/prototype PCBs. I understand 2.5W will not do it and found that there are a few 15W laser on ebay. Has anyone here in this forum tried these in your projects.


    I am new to OpenBuilds and this forum.

    that is for a cheap 89$ diode 2.5w,
    the Source pin to Ground on the Xpro card the Drain pin to the negative cable of the laser module the Gate to D11 on the on the Xpro card and a 12 or 24 DC to the laser module from the Power Supply "negative is common"
