Wireing Heated Bed

Posted · Wireing Heated Bed

Hello guys,

I'm building the Ultimaker Aluminium Version and bought therefore a heated bed with PT100 soldered in. Now I want to connect the heated bed with the 3D Printer.

I think the two thik wires for heating up the bed are normal wires.

The question is, if I have to buy special wires for wireing the PT100 from the clamp of the bed to the mainboard.

Normally PT100 Sensors have special wires, that are part of the resistance of the sensor.

Can someone help my please?

Thanx

    I don't think this is super critical, but why not just try it out. The PT100 at room temp is about 108 ohm if I'm right, just measure with and without cables....

    Anyhow even if the temp is a bit of, if it's just a single printer, without the need to have multiple exact matching machines its less relevant imho.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
