Sensors in Ultimaker 2+

I was wondering whether the Ultimaker 2+ has any sensors that keep track of process parameters like temperature of the extruder or of the build envelope etc.?

    Hi and welcome

    There are two sensors in the printer:

    1 temperature sensor in the head that makes sure that the head temperature is correct

    1 temperature sensor in the bed that makes sure that the bed temperature is correct

    You can monitor this by looking at the tune menu, or by connecting your printer with octoprint that has a graph with those temperature readings (if that's what you mean)

    Thanks a lot for the info, Didier. That was pretty much what I was asking about. Would you also happen to know if we can record these sensor readings by some method or if they can be accessed in software like MATLAB? Does the machine make any corrective actions if it notices that there is a drift in the values from the intended values?

    Thanks again.
