Using Deans Ultra Plugs for Heatbed Power Quick Disconnect


Recommended Posts

Posted · Using Deans Ultra Plugs for Heatbed Power Quick Disconnect

Does anyone here have experience using Deans Ultra Connectors? I was thinking about using them to make a quick disconnect point for my Heated Bed build I am doing so that I could remove the PCB without having to de-solder all the connections if I ever needed to. They seem hefty enough.

    I used them in my RC models, never had a problem with them. Also take a look at the XT60 connectors, I've upgraded to those, Deans are a pita to solder and use.

    I wouldn't recommend the original Dean's plugs. It's pretty much impossible to unmate these connectors without ripping off the wires...

    There are chinese knockoffs (for example the hobbyking ones) which have grips. These are actually better, but I'd still recommend using XT60 plugs or whatever else.

    You'll need a good soldering iron with a wide tip. It takes a lot of heating power to solder these plugs.

      • 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
