Where to buy a new UM2 PSU ?

Recommended Posts

Hi.

Where can I buy a new PSU brick for my old UM2?

It has started to make a 'fleeeer' noise, the display blinks and the leds too. So it seems something is not going well in the PSU.

I have found the Ultimaker store does not sell any original printer parts. Should I start looking on ebay  ?

Try aliexpress and ebay and amazon.  These supplies are expensive but I think it's worth it to get the one from meanwell.

 

There are two that work:

GST220A24-R7B
GS220A24-R7B

 

I find the one without the "T" to be more reliable - it puts out a little more power and is less likely to reboot for no apparent reason (but the reason is the printer went over the power limit for a second or two).

 

On the other hand, the power supply you have now, may be as good as new if you just let it reboot.  I have had these power supplies get into strange software states and if you power it completely off (unplug the cord and turn on the printer to drain it - otherwise it might take days to drain it) and then turn it back on again it can be as good as new.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
