Electrical characteristics of the Ultimaker Print Core AA 0.40mm

Posted (edited) · Electrical characteristics of the Ultimaker Print Core AA 0.40mm

Hello,

 

Currently I am trying to use the electronics  printcore AA 0.40mm for a research project. Although I was able to find on the internet some characteristics with the sensor (PT100, I was not able to find any further details on the heating element.

Does anyone know what operating voltage and amps range might be used or what type of heating element it is?

    So 3dsolex cores are 30W.  Ultimaker cores (all the one's I've tested which I think is all of them) are 25W.

     

    You can change the heater to a 35W and it will work but it may oscillate a bit unless you also modify the PID values.  I recommend sticking with 25W.

     

    They are "ceramic" heaters.  I don't know what that means.  The diameter is an even integral mm.  I forget if it's 2mm, 3mm, or 4mm.

    You got the 24Volt part right.  So UM cores are around 24 ohms and 3dsolex cores are around 19 ohms.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
