UMO+ screw terminal for heater cartridge and heated bed wires missing

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am in the final stage of assembling my UMO+ and I want to attach the heater cartridge wires and heated bed wires to the main board. However, there is no screw terminal, just the naked pins:


Should I just solder the wires to the pins? Can I buy the missing screw terminals somewhere? What exactly do I need to buy? Where?

Thank you very much for your help.

Yours baffled,

Michael Wegelin

The newest boards have detachable connector blocks. They come off in pairs and just slide onto those pins. But yes, contact your seller so that they can get that sorted out for you. If they have any spare boards in stock they can just pull those blocks off for you and send them to you in an envelope.

Umm, this kind of stuff should be added on the UMO+ manual, or at least someone could post it to the moderators? @sandervg ?

@IRobertI do you have an image of the connector block outside the board? Maybe @michaelwegelin can check on the UMO+ box to see if the block is around dancing and he might be able to 'click' it ?

    • "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.
