New laser, should I set max-power and how?

Post by apmadsen » Mon Apr 19, 2021 6:54 am

I've recently got a 50W chinese co2 laser, and all the videos I've seen, says that the first thing I should do, is setup the max power, but is this necessary with a Ruida RDC6442G-B controller (the laser has no amp-meter)?

And if it is indeed necessary, how do I calculate the correct value? The power supply is 60W, so should i calculate it as 50/60 = 83%?
