UM2 heatbed power consumption

Recommended Posts

Hi

Good question :idea:

During heating to the desired temperature, it will be between 110 - 130 watts. After that, the energy consumption is reduced because it is reheated only in short intervals in order to maintain the desired temperature. Similarly, the hot-end works in intervals and requires a maximum of 35 - 40 watts.

The average energy consumption is therefore dependent on the ambient temperature, the desired temperature, and the total run time.

So I suspect that the total average power requirement of the machine at about 100 watts per hour 2.4 kilowatts per day, is located.

The heating bed and the hot end probably need more than two-thirds of the total demand.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
