UM2 and UPS power supply

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2 and UPS power supply

Hello,

Anyone plugged his Ultimaker 2 to a UPS? I already got 2 power cut recently and one occurred after 8 hours of print just one hour before the end...

I'm looking for something that would hold for at least 15min up to an hour.

Thanks

It's not too hard to continue a failed print - most important thing is to keep the bed hot so the part doesn't pop off when it cools.

First you need to use pronterface to find the exact layer to continue on. Pronterface is here:

Í've had my UM2 connected to a APC SmartUPS1000 for a while now. works like a charm. no power cuts eperienced but it shows me it could support up to 30 mins..
