S5 not seeing Material Station

Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 not seeing Material Station



We have just unboxed our S5 and installed the air handler and material station, neither of which is recognized by the device when fully assembled.  The air handler is not recognized even when it is plugged directly into the printer.


The printer came with firmware 5.4.6, and we installed the latest version, 5.4.27.  We have factory reset the machine several times and have plugged / unplugged everything and checked the cables, everything looks good from a physical connectivity standpoint.


Any suggestions on troubleshooting this peripheral challenge?


Thank you,

Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station IT Department

    Maybe it's an issue with the internal wiring to one of the connectors or something like this; most probably an issue where the community cannot help you. Please get in contact with your reseller for coordination of the next steps (if not done already).

    Hi @SouthPoleStation, could you provide me with a picture of how you have connected/wired everything together? I guess that would be the easiest and safest way to verify. Thanks!
