The Kit Includes Universal PLH3D-CNC Laser Adapter

The fundamental functionality of the PLH3D-CNC Adapter is to “arm” and “disarm” laser head systems. Arming is defined as switching the laser head power supply on. The armed cutting and engraving laser is then capable of producing the laser beam. Vice versa, disarming (turning off the laser power supply) brings the laser head into a safe state in which generating the blue laser beam is simply impossible.

In addition, the PLH3D-CNC adapter provides you with the means to swiftly check your Onefinity CNC laser head system by generating a short laser pulse at its maximum power. This functionality does also verify whether you wired your laser head correctly.

Built-in safety features avoid misuse and unforeseen behavior in case of an emergency situation. The key switch prevents the engraving laser from being armed by minors and other unauthorized people. Arming the laser needs to always be done manually by the user, by simply pressing a button. Special circuitry also prevents laser arming in case of any internal electronics malfunction.

Overall, your laser head is disarmed automatically in case of emergencies such as:

  • PSU Failure
  • Loss of the Mains Supply
  • Breaking or Disconnecting the Laser Head Wire

Once it is disarmed, the laser system stays in a safe state. Subsequent rearming requires the laser system user to press the button.


Principal Features of the PLH3D-CNC Adapter:

  • Built-in Smart Microcontroller Controlling the Laser Head System
  • Automatic Disarm Functionality After Power-Off
  • Straightforward One-Button System (For Arming, Pulse Testing and Adapter Program (Enable Option) Setting)
  • Swift One-Second Pulse Laser Test
  • Compatibility With the Whole Range of PLH3D-Series Laser Heads
  • Soft Start
  • Indication LEDs - Power, Armed, Laser On
  • Two Programmable Enable Inputs
  • Two External Safety Terminals (For Example: Safety Key, E-Stop)
  • Keylock for Preventing Unauthorized People Usage
  • Highest Quality Machined Aluminum Enclosure

Woodworking - Cutting and Engraving Wood

Blue laser engraving can produce a detailed pattern with round edges as well as darken the color of the wood. Laser engraving can be used to engrave a logo or a photo, which can’t be done with milling bits. With PLH3D-6W, you can laser engrave wood and wood-based materials, including cork, chipboard, particleboard, alder, cherry, maple, MDF, basswood, balsa, veneers, medium-density-fiberboard and high-density-fiberboard.

Cutting Textiles and Thin Synthetic Materials

The high absorption of blue laser light for numerous materials enables fast cutting without damaging protection layers used in textile cutting. Blue laser cutting and engraving are suitable for diverse types of textiles including Cordura™, Alcantara, felt, 1080 denier nylon, jeans, short-staple fiber cotton, wool, tartan, fleece, white polyester, softshell, silk, lace and linen. High power density enables laser cutting textiles with carbon-reinforced yarn and nylon-reinforced yarn as well as white textiles. Many robust materials used in the production of tents, kites, and bags can be cut at 60 mm/s.

Product Features

 

Powered by Blue Laser Diodes

Unlike infrared light, blue light is more easily absorbed by numerous industrial materials. This directly translates to several advantages including reduced power consumption and more compact heat sinking.


Integrated Control Electronics

In many laser heads that have the diode connected to the diode’s driver via a long cable and the coupling is done with connectors. Long wires are characterized by substantial inductive effects. This results in delays of the diode’s response in relation to the diode’s driver and as extension it also results in blurred lines. Connectors are more prone to disconnections than coupling done via direct soldering. Disconnecting during laser processing can damage the laser head.

Accessories

LaserDock (Included in the Kits)Speeds up your work and keeps your laser clean

An effective solution for both large and small CNC machines and 3D printers, this magnetic docking station allows the PLH3D-XT Series laser for engraving to be quickly attached or removed. This facilitates quick access for CNC milling or 3D printing. By protecting the laser head from plastic or wood dust from your printer or CNC mill, it can extend the lifetime of the engraving laser and reduce maintenance. It also allows you to take advantage of the entire working area of your 3D printer or CNC machine.

High-Pressure Air Assist Nozzle

PLH3D-CNC Adapter (Included in the Kits) - Easy connection to any CNC machine

Many types of CNC machines and 3D printers with different control voltage standards and levels available on the market may be used to control the PLH3D head. The PLH3D-CNC Adapter converts all these signals to the standard compatible with the PLH3D head. The PLH3D-CNC Adapter contains widely used industry-standard screw connectors. A dedicated desktop low-noise power supply unit assures compatibility and reliability as well as eliminates problems caused by using third-party power supplies. The general status (power, armed, laser working) may be checked at a glance by watching three LEDs.

PLH3D-CNC Adapter

Laser Safety Glasses (Included in the Kits) - Ensure the highest quality of protection

These laser glasses can help reduce the probability of light entering the eye from the diffusely reflected laser light. It is important to note that while these laser glasses may be helpful at adding an additional layer of safety for diffusely scattered light, the user should not depend on them to protect against the beam entering the eye, either directly or indirectly. It is necessary to take additional precautions when working with lasers, receive proper training on how to do so and not depend on equipment as an alternative to safe practices.

High-Pressure Air Assist Nozzle

Other accessories (Included in the Kits) - To make your Opt Lasers Kit plug & play

With these accessories, it is a plug & play kit. Height Reference - helps you set your working distance, power adapter with AC adapter to allow you to plug into all outlets (US, AU and Europe), wiring and screw set to connect everything together and mount to connect the machine.

High-Pressure Air Assist Nozzle

Blue Laser Safety Window (Compatible with all Blue Lasers) - Install as you need

These laser windows can help reduce the probability of light entering the user’s eye from a diffusely backscattered laser light. This product is rated at OD 6+ over the range of 190 to 540 nm, blocking deep ultraviolet to green including violet and blue light.

High-Pressure Air Assist Nozzle

High-Pressure Air Assist Nozzle (Compatible with XT-50 & XT-10 and XF+) - Speeds up laser cutting and engraving up to 6 times

Being compatible with the XT and XF+ Laser Head, the High-Pressure Air Nozzle is a priceless asset for laser cutting and engraving.
