I ordered the wrong power supply & cable

Recommended Posts

Hello,

recently ordered a ultimaker 2 and had it shipped to Canada. When I opened my printer I noticed that I had received the EU power cord instead of the US power cord.

I want to know if I need to buy a new power supply and power cord cable, or if I can just use an adapter with the EU power cord and cable that I ordered.

Will this have any negative impact on the printer or negatively impact the overall performance if I take this route.

Power supply model : GS220A24

Thanks

Just use another cable and it'll work fine. You might even have a suitable one around the house, it's the same type of cable that is used for PC power supplies. If you don't have a spare you can walk into any PC store and buy one cheaply (or ask family/friends if they happen to have a cable lying around).

    • "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.
