Replacement PT100B sensor not shielded

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I bought this PT100B sensor as a replacement part for an UM2 and it looks different to the original sensor.

As you can see from the image, the leads are not shielded.

Just wondering if this would cause an issue with accuracy since the leads run in parallel to the leads of the heater cartridge and fan cables which might couple some noise into the sensor leads.

The part was ordered as a spare part from an official UM distributor.

Thanks for any feedback.

Flo

(old sensor was impossible to get out without destroying it)

 

Ha! It seems impossible when you are frustrated but iRoberti can take out 99 out of 100 of these things. He has magic, genius techniques. My technique involves WD-40, 150C heat and a sewing needle.

    • "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.
