Different colors on heated bed cable

Recommended Posts

I just noticed, that the cable which came with my heated bed kit has different colors than what they mention in the users manual. So in case someone is confused, the brown and the blue wires go where the gray wires are in the manual, and the black and the white wires go where the black wires are in the manual:

The skinny wires go to the temp sensor (you can see the traces on the board going over to the tiny temp sensor part) and the thick wires go to the heater (you can see those traces also - they cover the whole board). Both objects are pure resistors and can be wired up either way (no polarity - it works backwards and forwards).

    • "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.
