back cooling fan Ultimaker 2 specs

Posted · back cooling fan Ultimaker 2 specs

Does anyone know what the power tolerance for the back fan port on the Ultimaker 2 board is? The standard smaller fan that comes stock with the Ulti2 is a DC5V 0.58W fan. This small fan is what normally runs off the board. However,

I am currently running a DC12V 0.08A fan off this back fan port for cooling off prototype hot end systems. The fan is running fine for now. However I would like to know if the back fan port on the Ulti2 board can handle this power pull in the long run? Also, can the back cooling fan speed or power be changed in Cura or must it be done in Marlin?

    The answer from Ultimaker support is that the Ulti2 board supports a DC5V fan. However, the DC 12V fan runs just fine and should not damage the board. Good enough for me. Hope this helps anyone interested in mods to the current system. No need to change firmware settings just plug in it and play.

    Found some more info that might help anyone wanting to use the back cooling fan outlet on the UM2. This is from Daid replying to another post about the power load the back cooling fan outlet is capable of on UM2. Daid "No need to worry about the 5V fan connector, you can safely draw more then 2A out of it."

      • 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
