In order to test the scanning head, a simple air-cooled solid state YAG laser was used. Since the AVI head is fed by fiber optic cable, this was fairly easy to do. Of course, we only get one color - green - but it is enough to exercise the system and still produce stunning although monochromatic displays.
The system came with a white light laser that pulls three-phase and a whole lot of amps (memory escapes me at the moment, just how much). I have the krypton head and water-cooling equipment that also but that must wait for some help with the generator.
I desperately need someone to help wire it and get it plumbed into a propane supply. It is an Onan 35KW with a 6 cylinder ford truck engine. Financial resources last year went into obtaining the equipment, alas, getting it further functional will require more cash.
It shouldn't be that hard to get running. Is it 35KW per phase or the total output for the entire generator? If it is total output then we are only talking about 12KW per 110 volt phase or about 10 amps or so per leg. Standard 12 gauge wire will be more then adequate. Hooking up the gas line shouldn't be much of a problem either. There is probably a regulator mounted on the generator proper so it would be just connect the tank to the unit.
