UMO+ what type of thermistor (for firmware)?


Recommended Posts

Posted · UMO+ what type of thermistor (for firmware)?

Hey guys,

I upgraded my UMO+ with the UM2 upgrade kit, so I have my old UMO+ hotend lying around doing nothing.

I'm going to be modding my new CR-10 to use the UMO+ hotend, but I need to know what type of thermistor the UMO+ uses so that I can change the thermistor type in the firmware.

Does anyone know which type of thermistor the UMO+ uses?

    It is not a thermistor, it is PT100 RTD. In Marlin it is:

    // 20 is the PT100 circuit found in the Ultimainboard V2.x

    Be aware that you can't connect it directly to your board, you need an additional circuit (like the E3D PT100 amplifier)

    Thanks for the info. Looks like I might just replace the PT100 with a normal thermistor, just to make things a little easier.

    The documentation on the E3D PT100 amplifier is great, but it appears to be out of my scope for electronics, unfortunately.

    Installing the E3D amplifier is relatively straightforward, but I tend to agree with you, the easiest is to keep a thermistor if this is what you have on this printer. You can always upgrade afterwards if yo want a more precise temperature control.

    Agreed. I'm sure it's probably a fairly simple process, but I have a couple of normal thermistors lying around here, so it's probably best I use those for the time being.

    I'd love to learn more about the E3D amplifier and PT100, though. I started reading the wiki for the amplifier, but they use a RAMPS board as an example, and the CR-10 doesn't use a RAMPS board. They may be similar, but I'll have to do a bit more research before I attempt to use the PT100.

    Really great info, though. I appreciate it ;-)

      • 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.
