Super Carver laser diode upgrade?

Post by JasonNB » Thu May 28, 2020 12:01 am

In regards to the Super Carver Engraver, the original unit I bought came with a laser rated 500mW @ 405nm. The company sells a upgraded unit now with a laser rated 1000mW @ 405nm. The laser input voltage for both 5v.

Long story short, my son plugged in a power adapter, because it fit, rated at 19v and fried the original laser diode. So now I’m looking into replacing just the laser. I know that I can go up to 1000mW @ 405nm with no issues.

My question is if I can go up to 1500mW @ 405nm with the same input rating of 5v? What would my benefits be and would the original control board be able to handle the upgrade?

Thanks for taking a look and any input would be appreciated.
