This is the component that contains the CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) that is excited by the voltage coming from the 40W Power Supply. The diameter of the tube is 50mm (approximately 2 inches). The length of the tube is 730.25mm (28.75 inches)
This CO2 Laser Tube has an inlet and outlet for water cooling and wire connections for the anode and cathode sides of the tube.
How to Test a CO2 Laser Tube for Power
In this tutorial we'll explain the process for properly testing a CO2 laser tube for power. In this example we are testing a 40W CO2 laser tube and 40W power supply.
