Regarding Power consumption data

Recommended Posts

Posted · Regarding Power consumption data

I am working as a student Research assistant at TU Braunschweig. I am currently working on Ultimaker - S5 printer and in which my task is to get the power consumption of the printer during its usage. So, does anyone here can help me or guide me on how could I get or access the data?

    I would have to agree with gr5 on the statement of using a power meter and collecting your own measurements. 

    Overall power consumption of the S5 is subjective to environment (how cold/hot the room is) and what materials your printing and if you have an air manager installed etc.
    The machine will always pull the most power during its pre-heat cycles.. and then bottom out 20min or so into the print job itself.

    For starting reference the S5 has a 24v 500w power supply - so it wont pull beyond that at full power.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
