The laser (which includes the air assist pump, extraction fan, and chiller) electrical power specifications are as follows:

NOTE: ALL THUNDER LASER USA MACHINES ARE 110VAC ONLY


You can find this info in our new Nova series Unified Users Manual:

More on the wiring:

Newer Nova series machines power the chiller directly via the Laser Power Switch. See more here:

 July 1, 2020 Nova Series Changes


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 some of the the 130W 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.


Some 130W units come with the 15A plug which is fine and works with 20A outlets. Just be sure not to plug a 130W unit into a 15A 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



40W to 100W Nova series machines have a standard 15A 110VAC plug but that doesn't necessarily mean it only requires 15A to operate the system. A 20A 110VAC dedicated circuit is strongly advised for all installations. 


The 40w and 60w machines can run on a  dedicated 15A 110VAC circuit. 


The 80w and 100w machines must have a dedicated 20A 110VAC supply.


The 130w machines call for a 25A feed according to Thunder Laser Engineering. In the US there is a 30A RV plug but nothing standard in typical residential/commercial installations. In this instance we highly recommend dual dedicated 20A outlets. 

People are, however, running on a dedicated 20A with their 130w units. And remember, in that case, 

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.
