Upgrading to 60w, drop in replacement (plus power supply)?

I’m considering an upgrade/rebuild and my case already has a built in opening for an extended tube, so I just have to get the casing to go around that and I’m golden. I wanna go with a “real” 60w (whatever that tube length is) and get a power supply to match. My question is, can I just replace those two (and whatever wiring necessary, I’d guess to go along with the higher power output) and keep the control board and everything else intact/in place? Or do I need to consider/prepare for other upgrade requirements to go along with that much of a power jump?

The LPS and laser are independent of the controller in most machines. So the simple answer to your question is YES.

  1. What machine do you have?
    Depending on what LPS your have and which 60W LPS you pick will determine how much wiring will need to be done. It’s not a tough upgrade and we can walk you through it.
  2. Post picture of you current LPS and the one that you want to replace it.
  3. Post picture of your control panel.

And, of course, I see the email that I got a response at almost midnight when the response came at 10am. I haven’t decided on any of the replacement parts yet. I’d been looking around, but didn’t wanna make a decision until I was sure. I don’t wanna order the wrong thing and have to try to return it or go through WAY more work than planned originally. I’ll try to take pictures in the morning or on Sunday. Should I focus my pictures on anything specific to help identify things?
