PLH3D-CNC Adapter

Feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss cooperation

 

The PLH3D-CNC Adapter serves as a versatile interface and safety unit connected between a CNC machine and a high-performance PLH3D laser head. Many types of CNC machines and 3D printers available on market, with different control voltage standards and levels available, may be used to control the PLH3D head. The PLH3D-CNC Adapter converts all these signals to the standard compatible with the PLH3D cutting laser. Possibility of connecting to different machines of different heads provides versatility of the system.

Product Features

Rapid Laser Cutting with High-Pressure Air-Assist Nozzle

Multi-functionality of PLH3D-CNC Adapter

Built-in safety mechanisms prevent misuse and unexpected behavior in case of an emergency. The key switch protects the laser head from being armed by children and other unauthorized people. Arming the laser head is always done manually by the user, by pressing a button. Special circuitry prevents arming during an internal electrical malfunction.


Safe start

The laser head can be made operational by selecting to “arm” and “disarm” the laser head. Arming means turning the head power supply on; the armed head is then able to generate a laser beam. Disarming (turning the head power supply off) brings the laser head to a safe state where generating a laser beam is altogether impossible.

Industrial Quality

Additional feature are industry-standard screw connectors. A dedicated, low-noise desktop power supply unit assures compatibility and reliability as well as eliminates problems caused by using third-party power supplies. The general status (power on, arming, laser working) may be inspected at a glance by looking at the three LEDs.


Safety mechanisms and automatic reset

Additional safety mechanisms can be incorporated into the system by adding up to two external switches (e.g., a limit switch, a key switch, or an e-stop). There is also an additional extension connector for future purposes.At power failure requires rearming.

  • The key function of the PLH3D-CNC Adapter is to “arm” and “disarm” the laser head

  • Arming means turning the head power supply on; the armed head is then able to generate a laser beam

  • Disarming (turning the head power supply off) brings the laser head to a safe state where generating a laser beam is fully impossible

  • The laser head may be checked by generating a short laser pulse at maximum power

  • Built-in safety means preventing misuse and unexpected behavior in an emergency. The key switch protects the laser head against arming by children and other unauthorized persons
