You can find this info in our new Nova series Unified Users Manual:
The chiller electrical power specifications are as follows:
This can be found in the chiller manual:
This is the power consumption as measured in Thunder Laser China's Labs:
|STOCK AIR ASSIST, EXHAUST FAN||STOCK AIR ASSIST, EXH. FAN & CHILLER|
More on the wiring:
Newer Nova series machines power the chiller directly via the Laser Power Switch. See more here:
you can use an 18AWG or better IEC computer power cable to power the chiller from another circuit instead of the laser power to help balance the load if you wish.
The power requirements of the lasers differ by wattage and most of the the units require a dedicated 20A outlet, meaning that a 130W Thunder laser with this 20A plug will not plug into a standard 15A 110VAC outlet.
You cannot swap a 15A plug out with a 20A outlet. The breaker is still 15A and the wire is not rated for 20A circuits. If you have questions about this beyond the scope of the laser's power requirements you may want to seek the advice of an electrician.
PLEASE OBSERVE ALL OF THE THUNDER LASER POWER REQUIREMENTS. LOCAL ELECTRICIAL CODES SUPERCEDE THIS INFO. CONTACT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN IF YOU ARE NOT SURE.
