You can drive them directly from the Ultimaker PCB. The setup is however a bit tricky.

I don't understand this statement. So can we drive the PCB heated bed from the UM power supply (eg, plugging directly into UM motherboard)? Is the power supply capable of supplying enough power? Are we REQUIRED to have another power supply to power the heated bed?

Has anyone tried powering it directly without adding another power supply or another board, etc??

    You need to add a separate supply, the UM power supply cant deliver enough power (75-100W for the heated bed + 60W for the PCB itself) without shutting down first. So you need some sort of power relay board with a separate power supply to make it function properly.

      • 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
