    Thumbs up

    dave and aijii are the sellers from eBay and both members here. They also have a website off eBay.

    I bought a set of these about a year ago and they have been great. I just had to RMA them, but as they are/were my first set of scanners, I may have been a little rough on them. My Y galvo started to overshoot. Not sure what causes this, but with my room, I have a small "throw" and used a slightly larger scan angle than they were rated but also dropped the PPS. I also am not great with electricity and have had a few wiring mishaps...

    As for service, they are great! dave is usually logged in here and has helped me though several of my mishaps. When my Y galvo stated to have issues, dave got me off my ass to send them back so I wouldn't go beyond my warrenty. I just got them back today. I think it took about 3 weeks round trip, including the week long Chinese Holiday that started the day I mailed them...

    I would definatly recommend them to anyone. I also have a set of the scanco20ks that they donated to the SELEM door prize stash. I'm a winner!
    Love, peace, and grease,

    Cool

    I am currently working on a review of those scanners. If you can wait a while, I'll be happy to share the results. If you're in a hurry, I can say that a lot of people here like them. (Both the scanners themselves as well as the cool guys at LaserShowParts.com)

    I was lucky to get 2 sets of CT 6800HP. The life span of those galvos are about 10-15 years. Yes they are 1000$ for a set but they will last very long.
    I hired an Italian guy to do my wires. Now they look like spaghetti!

    I bought a set of the 30k galvos. Not the pro ones with closed loop.

    For home use is open loop galvos okay for beam, text and animation shows?. This is a home setup just for fun and not for pubs or club use.

    Cheers

    I'm not sure but I don't think openm loop scanners are good for text or animations, maybe for beams.

    as far as i know the eco and pro versions are both closed loop

    and all the 30K scanners i have seen have been closed loop


    open loop scanners like the Gen scanning G124s are really only good for about 12k and thats with a good amp board there are ways to improve position control by monitoring the back EMF from the coil, so it may be yours work like that, just guessing

    hopefully Dave can verify


    all the best ... Karl

    Yea, I agree with Karl. I don't think dave sells any open loop scanners.

    He sells the SCANPRO30 - 30kpps and the SCANECO30 - 30kpps.
    For the Pro it says "The driver board features differential inputs and feedback outputs."
    For the Eco it says it has differential inputs but does not mention the feedback output.
