Well. I suppose you talk about thr small pcb that comes with the bed upgrade?

That little board has a pt100 sensor, 24V to heat the bed and a bridge to keep all connected. So, you can't plug it just like that. I think the small board might be available if you ask to resellers. Maybe someone has one in stock?

Also maybe someone knows a trick or a pcb that works with that?

Edit. Maybe I'm wrong and you talking about this? https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ultimaker-heated-bed-mosfet-relay-hack-v2

    It might not be too difficult to replace the damaged chip if you know how to solder or have a friend.

    Maybe someone with more technical knowhow can chip in more suggestions?

    Hi funkydrgonzo,

    As I'll understand this is an upgraded UMO become an UMO+?

    So you have a separated heat bed PCB with the PT100B sensor..

    First, you cannot conect direct to the mother board in your printer!

    You have to repair your old PCB or buy a new PCB.

    I'll guess you mean Q2 here? Have tried to zoom into it but cannot see the type number on top of the Mosfet. Is it a burning mark going across?

    Maybe someone else have this type number?

    It is not that difficult to change this circuit, but you'll need some skill to do it.

    If you can’t do it yourself, find a radio/electronics repair shop or maybe a friend (with this skill) as neotko suggested to help repairing your heat PCB.

    There should be some more information about this PCB in github.com, a schematic would be nice to have, but I can't find it.

    Good luck.

    Thanks.

    Torgeir.

    The PcB info of the extra board is here

    Great info neotko!

    The (N)MOSFET you'll need is CSD18501A from Texas Instrument.

    You can buy it here:

    http://uk.rs-online.com/web/cp/8274877,8274877P/?sra=p&r=t

    But min. order is 5 each. but it's not to bad.. RS is all over the globe, but this is the one in GB.

    I've made some modification of your picture, so you'll see how to remove it and how it is orientated..

    But you'll need a proper side cutter to do it, and knowledge how to proceed, -if you do not know - forget it and leave it to someone that do know.

    OK., here's a picture with some info.

    Good luck.

    Thanks.

    hey guys

    you're awesome. exactly what a friend said. "let's change the ic", he said :-D

    from what i see in the scheme is that it's a IRF8736PBF from infineon or do i look wrong?

    You're absolutely right, this is the one!

    IRF8736PBF is also supplied by RS.

    This one is used for the heat bed, and the "two" heat block (extruders) in the (UM2 - UM2+) as well. :)

    Right on target.

    Good luck.

    Torgeir.

      • 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 5.3.0-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.
