Default Newbie with a question.

Great site. I am a newbie and wanted to know if anyone is familiar with the PLC CO2 TMR heart laser. I can not get it to fire during the cal. phase. Everthing else seems to be okay at this point, I cannot go any further with the cal test passed.

Also what can this laser be used for? I was hoping for engraving or other art work. The spec are 8 - 80 joules with pulse with of 10 - 99 mS, delayu of 1- 999 mS. It is a slab laser, RF excited. 125 mm focal length.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated,


Todd

Welcome Todd.

I'm no C02 expert, we do have a couple here, so it may take a day or so to get your answers.

Daguin and HemlockMike come to mind right away.

I take it you got a good deal on a used C02 laser??

Meanwhile, here is some good reading materials, it will help keep you busy while you wait for the answers.

Thanks photonaholic I will give Sam's site a look. Great amount of info available, I'm sure that it will take some time to digest. Thanks. I hope to get the laser home next week and get the covers off and get to troubleshooting. I will keep you all informed.

FS --

Read all the info you have on that laser. Many have so many interlocks required by the FDA that it can be hard to get it running. Sometimes a burned out warning light is enough to disable the system.
Pictures? Did you do a google search on it? You may find a manual for it.
I have called the manufacturers on some things and they emailed me the entire manual.

Once I get it home I will be able to spend more time with it. I did locate the manufactuer and their tech support line, I will give them a call if it requires a little more troubleshooting. The hospital that I got the laser from purchased a manual from the manufactuer but we sold the manual to a third party service company for contract related purposes. I will see if I can social engineer a manual from the manufactuer

I will post some pictures of the laser hopefully this week.

As promised I have uploaded some photos of the laser that I brought home today. I worked with it for a couple hours tonight trying to get it to fire. No Luck... I plan on contacting the manufactuer maybe tomorrow. I will keep everyone posted.

Feel free to comment.
