    Default Actual power consumption 100w tube

    I figured co2 lasers are somewhat inefficient, but by how much ?


    What kind of wall power suckage goes on if i power 100w tube at 100% (yeah yeah inadvisable..) run included air extractor, water and air pump ? We're talking typical setup that chinese manufacturers send out in a crate. Not discussing chillers here.

    Granted, most will not use tube at anywhere near 100%, but its good to test the limits just to know.

    I'm in UK, that makes 240v supply.

    My machine is bobbling along in the crate on a ship somewhere, 6090 sized 100w EFR tubed. I'm pretty sure i do have capacity to run it but need to make sure wiring is up to snuff if it ever goes above 3kW (13A) with all the accessory bits connected.

    My understanding is 65% is the max power with the stock Chinese laser tubes. Beyond that in continuous cuts & power drops significantly & also reduces the usable life of the tube. I have never run my 50 watt over 65%.
