Ultimaker S5 - new version?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker S5 - new version?

I was looking for the latest S5 firmware on the Ultimaker site and I came across this:




What is the real difference between the old and new models? (other than the logo on the side) Has anyone noticed any improvements or changes in the newer model? And maybe the most important question, does the older model have a hidden issue which was quietly fixed? It doesn't make sense to me to keep the name intact but change something undisclosed for any other reason than because of some failure or issue.

    Why did Ultimaker release a different version of the Ultimaker S5?

    Firstly, the new version of the Ultimaker S5 includes the branding updates to align this printer with the other products in the S-line, such as the Ultimaker S3 and the Ultimaker S5 Material Station. 

    Next, the changes made under the cover of the Ultimaker S5 improve the electromagnetic compatibility of the printer and help ensure that the new version of the Ultimaker S5 is Class B compliant.

    Lastly, the 2018 version of the Ultimaker S5 conforms to safety standard IEC 60950-1 and the new version to IEC 62368-1. The standard IEC 62368-1 is mandatory per December 2020.
