532 and American Laser 60X Umbilical Connector
WARNING: DOES NOT APPLY TO NEC GLG3020, GLG3030 OR GLG3050 SERIES HEADS EVEN THOUGH THEY USE THE SAME CONNECTOR. CONNECTING AN NEC HEAD TO A OMNICHROME OR AMERICAN SUPPLY WILL RESULT IN PSU FAILURE
Connector type: The mating connector is AMP Part number 206612-1
Umbilical Connector Pinout
A/ Thermal/fan interlock wires also run outside of the
head, among with the two 110 VAC wires for the fan. Use an
ohmmeter to locate the fan wires and interlock wires by measuring
from the pins on the connector to each of the four wires.
Cross-connecting a fan wire to an interlock wire will severely
damage the Power supply.
B/ For those building or servicing Power Supplies, note that a 100K resistor inside the PSU must be with the pin marked boost via 100K. Failure to have this installed or reversing these two leads will result in ignitor failure and/or tube damage!
C/ The 60X/532 is an OEM laser and thus not all pins
will be connected or in use. Having a pin 4 on the connector is a
dead give-away that you have a supply that uses 220 VAC North
American or 250 VAC 50 Hz European power. A system of this type
will not run from North American 110 VAC power lines without a tap
change or transformer change inside the PSU (it can be run form a
stove/dryer connection that provides 220 VAC. If pin 7 is present,
the unit has external ignition shut-off, consult your vendor or
D/ While the Omnichrome 532 and American Laser 60X are
designed to be interchangeable, there are some differences.
Omnichrome heads are designed to operate in light control mode and
will not have a current sense pin on the 22 pin connector. The AC
power LED on the head is is powered by +15 Volts from the the
light control care in the ALC 60X, but by -15 Volts in the
Omnichrome laser heads.
POWER CONNECTOR PINOUT FOR 7 PIN AC POWER CONNECTOR - AMERICAN/LANDMARK/MARLIN "GOLD BOX" or "XEROX" Power Supply
On the Gold Box power connector, pins 1 and 6 go to the 110V AC
HOT line (black wire) , Pins 7 and 2 go to the 110V AC neutral
wire (white wire) , and pin 4 is safety ground (green wire) Other
pins are unused.
60C/60B Physical Differences, How to tell if you have a 60C/60B
There are two fans on the side instead of one fan on the top.
All other pins match the general 60X pinout.
