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.
