Ultimaker Temp Sensor: Pt100?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Some of us try to find an easy solution to measure how accurate the temperature sensor on our machines is.

Therefore i tried to measure the resistance of the PT100 with an Ohm-meter. The funny thing is, at about 22°C it shows me around 3Ohm - that's kinda weird since a real PT 100 should have 100 Ohm at 0°C as far as i know.

Am I missing something? Why isn't it like I expected? Is it really an Pt100 in the UMO or maybe something else?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
