Sorry, it's the new pt100 temperature sensor...'E3D V6 PT100 Total Upgrade Kit' from E3D-online. I am trying to install an e3dv6 hot end on the UM2 clone i'm building, and the um2 mainboard gives me a 'TEMP SENSOR ERROR message when I power it up. The kit comes with an amplifier board which is supposed to be connected to a 'spare analog input pin' on the mainboard. I have no idea how to change the firmware to enable it, although I think I have coneected it to the right pin selected

The um2 clone is an aluminium extrusion version...it has the white mainboard plus ultiLCD

thanks...the instructions on the wiki above clearly state that you can't just plug it into the mainboard? The connector does fit the TEMP1 pin but I still get the same error message.

Also I can't upload the firmware for UM2 from Cura...but It will upload the UO firmware??

Ahh. Well aliexpress china clones from the board are know to be unreliable so if you get troubles to upload a firmware...

Also. Any 2.1 board already has pt100 and it doesn't use the pt100 amplifier. E3D amplifier it's for Ultimaker boards 1.5.X or other boards without pt100.

Yeah pt100 for hotend 1 goes in temp 1. Temp 3 it's for the bed.

It's true that Ultimaker should say to the users that there's a github with all the part numbers and that this numbers can be used to buy any part from a distributor... I wonder why this isn't explained clearly anywhere.

    • "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.
