Many have contacted us for help in upgrading their current controller to a new and more powerful Ruida controller. This site offers Free Resources, should you wish to attempt this upgrade yourself. All are welcome to use it.  We offer paid conversion plans for those who seek help.

We will recommend a state of the art Ruida Controller! It will run on most operating systems (Mac, Windows 7, 10, etc.). The specific Ruida controller will vary with different laser makes, models and years! IMPORTANT: Once you upgrade you will NO LONGER be tied to the manufacturer. You'll use Lightburn which will be MORE accurate. You can install a camera and more....


Complete the form below and we will get back to you with our recommendation for your specific laser. We will suggest a Ruida  controller  (approx. $450), supply a link on AMAZON. We suggest that you purchase it from Amazon. In this way, YOU are the owner of record. You can return it for a Full Refund, should you choose not to move forward. You will have a warranty to enable you to obtain support directly from Amazon or Ruida.

This is a FREE controller recommendation. The resources, videos, tutorials are for self-installation and are here for the laser community.

The cost of conversion is $700 from us! Together, we will have your laser with the new controller "UP and RUNNING"! This in record time!

What do you get for $700 ?
We provide:
1- Labels for each wire on your current controller. Each wire should already have labeled barrel connections which can fall off. You will receive our labels for each wire with your nomenclature. Each will have installation Group Letters (A,B,C, etc.)
2- You will receive wire transfer instructions telling you which group of wires to switch over first (Group A), second (Group B), etc.  

3- Self-stick labels for your New Ruida Controller with 1-1 correspondence to your current controller labels. So you can confidently transfer Group A wires to the new Ruida connector and then plug it in.

4- Upon wire transfer you will run a test circle file which will be available to confirm that the wire transfer is correct. 

5- You will receive a sample beginning config file to be uploaded to your Ruida controller from Lightburn (Lightburn 30 day Free Trial).

6- You will schedule a one to one telephone/video conference to upload the config file to Lightburn and then to the controller. 

7- Further refinements for your specific laser which includes establishing  Home,  Setting Job Origins, Framing job, Calibration, Optimal Focus of laser with a Ramp Test, and  use of the Ruida  display.

8- Successful running of an Engrave Test File to both Cut and Engrave (view that file on this page).

At this point we consider your laser UP and RUNNING!



Controller wire transfer service-
We will send an agent to your location to swap wires from your current controller to the new Ruida Controller.  This service is currently offered in Long Island, Queens, and Brooklyn. COST varies but is typically  $300 + Travel Time calculated at $50 per hour.

Support After the Controller Upgrade

Once the new controller is up and running you have severed ties with the FSLaser (or your current laser manufacturer). You have a new controller, direct computer to laser USB, new software (Lightburn), can add a camera, etc. We can offer support.

Telephone Support-  At your option we offer support in 3 hour packages, prepaid for $250.
