Blower fan for Ultimaker 2 controller board

Posted (edited) · Blower fan for Ultimaker 2 controller board

I need some help, i am not electronic savvy.

The question is i have 2 identical fans ( SUNON, 12 VOLTS ) ( 50mm x 50 mm )

Each fan has these specifications

Power current:  105 mA

Power consumpion: 1.26 watts

I want the 2 fans to  cool the controller board. I have built a PLA housing for the 2 fans to sit on top of board.

I am also using the same power supply GS220A24-R7B -- DC VOLTAGE 24V same used on the ULTIMAKER 2.

I have attached images below. The specs for the power supply is highlighted in green.

I have already connected the 2 fans in parallel, but when i plug the connector onto the

board J20  ( fan 19-24 v )  the fans do not want to spin, i feel the motors on the fans

vibrating but no spinning.

Can someone please help me, i don't know why they don't want to spin.5a331fec1d5e5_SUNONFAN12V.thumb.JPG.232fa6a348b038104120b22b204021c9.JPG[/media]5a331fec7824d_POWERSPECS.thumb.jpg.cd05e64ee227b1361606314b16402da7.jpg

    x2 12V fan in parallel on a 24V plug... Do you see the probem?

    Run them in series so they actually use 12V on a 24V plug. Also, I might be wrong, but pluging 12V fans on a 24V can destroy them. So, test serial.

    just for clarity, as you say you are not 'electronic savvy' running in series means the current goes through one first and then the other

    If you were to look inside the black block of the print head you would see this is how they are wired, if a connection breaks both fans will stop working

    hope that is clearer - good luck

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
          • Thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
