UMO thermistor reading limited

Recommended Posts

Recently, the readings of the thermistor on my UMO are limited.

A completely cold printhead will show ~120°C, when heating up this value does not change until the printhead actually reaches ~120°C.

Then the temperature readings seem to be accurate within a margin of error.

This all wouldn't be a problem, if the printer wouldn't abort heating before the printhead reached said thereshold.

Of course the first thought is about a defect component, so I replaced:

  • The thermistor
  • The thermocouple
  • The Ultiboard
  • The Arduino

I also checked the cables, of course.

On the new arduino I flashed a customized fork of the Marlin firmware available on GitHub, forked from the Marlin_UM_HeatedBedUpgrade branch.

Here's the link to my repo: https://github.com/MarkusA380/Marlin

What could be the problem?

    • "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.
