UM2 and UPS power supply


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2 and UPS power supply


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.

    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..
