The Concise RDWorks Learning Lab Series
Welcome to the new Concise RDWorks Learning Lab Series with Russ Sadler. In this session, Russ briefly discusses the workings of the Ruida controller and goes through the key aspects of a typical laser machine circuit diagram. There are a number of Ruida controllers but the 6442S and 6442G are two of the more common variants.
Over the last 6 years, Russ has built up a formidable YouTube following for his RDWorks Learning Lab series which currently has over 200 videos.
The original RDWorks Learning Lab series on his “Sarbar Multimedia” YouTube Channel, follows Russ as he tries to make sense of his new Chinese laser machine and to sort out the truths, half truths and outright misleading information that is available on the web.
Six years later with over 4 million YouTube Views under his belt, Russ has become the go to resource for everything related to the Chinese CO2 laser machine user or wannabe user.
In this new series, Russ has condensed his knowledge and experience of the last 6 years to provide valuable information and insights into the purchasing, understanding, use, repair and maintenance of the Chinese CO2 laser machines and their key component parts.

Reset Ruida Controller
If you need to reset your Ruida Controller to it’s DEFAULT Parameters as defined by your Laser System Manufacturer. This is the procedure to follow:
- Back up your current files if not already done – This is a vital stage as not all Laser System Manufacturers will have loaded a default parameter file onto the controller and you may inadvertently revert to Factory Default. You can save the settings via RSWorks and LightBurn when your laser machine is connected to the software.
- Backup with RDWorks: Open RDWorks > File > Vendor Settings > Password: RD8888 > Read > Save > Filename.RDVSet.
- Backup with LightBurn: Open LightBurn > Edit > Machine Settings > Read > Save > Filename.lbset
- With the Laser machine switched on press Z/U
- Press Down Arrow to “Set Default Para” press <Enter>
- Use keypad to enter the Password: HF8888
- The controller will then beep and the message “Recover Success” will show.
- Press <Enter>
- Then reboot the controller by cycling the main power. Voilà, you now have a Reset Ruida controller!
Please Note: DO NOT carry out a Factory Parameters Reset!
