S5 Olimex Board


Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 Olimex Board

Is anybody familiar with the Olimex Board that sits inside the S5, first version.

We have a faulty USB port, and it's not the cable.

Olimex.com has several versions listed for the A20 board.

But wich one is the correct one?


  • A20-OLinuXino-LIME2
  • A20-OLinuXino-LIME2-e16Gs16M
  • A20-OLinuXIno-LIME2-n8G
  • A20-OLinuXino-LIME2-s16M
  • T2-OLinuXino-LIME2-e8Gs16M-IND
  • T2-OLinuXino-LIME2-IND
  • T2-OLinuXino-LIME2-s16M-IND

    Technically it's none of those.  Ultimaker got a slightly customized one with some connectors removed and a USB connector swapped with a different type of connector.


    Someone at Ultimaker told me the board is basically this one: UM3 / S5: A20-OLinuXIno-LIME2-n8G for €48  (aka olimex lime2 with these features).  I'm not 100% sure that's all correct if you go to olimex.com they explain the numbers.  A20 and lime2 are definitely correct.  8G is the overall memory and that's enough.  n is for nand memory, e is for eMMc memory.  I have a demo S5 that came with the eMMc memory but you will want to get the "n" type as that is what the latest firmware expects and does better with.  But you will need to remove some parts and change the USB connector.  You can steal the USB connector from your old broken board.  or maybe you can't???


    You can save some money by ordering the UM3 olimex and put it in your S5 but you have to change something in the eeprom.


    Also if you order the board from olimex it won't have the printer type saved into the eeprom.


    I have instructions on how to save the printer type into the eeprom here:

      • 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
