I just recently bought a used K40 laser and I was thinking about upgrading the board to use lightburn. It doesn’t seem to be a standard nano2 board and was wondering what would need to be changed to install the cohesion board? I know I can’t upload pictures as a new user but the model # is 6C6879-Laser-M2:5
With some mild rewiring, it seems your machine is compatible.
The power plug (with 1 green wire and 3 blue wires) is a 6 pin variant, which we cover in this article:
The 4 pin connectors for the X and Y steppers (to the left of the power plug) and the 5 pin plug (on the far right) for your endstops all should be plug and play, as they appear to be the same as what is covered in our installation instructions:
We also recommend reading our Buyer’s Guide for more information:
Thank you for getting back to me. I had saw the 6 pin laser power guide you had posted but wasn’t sure how plug and play my particular board was. So from the guides and what you are saying the only thing I would need to do for rewiring is take the correct 2 wires and plug them into the cohesion board correct screw terminals. If that is all that really needs to be done that is great since I was worried about it being more complicated.
