Thermistor and Thermocouple won't work together

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a Problem with my DIY UMO.

I installed a Thermocouple for the Hotend, like Ultimaker does as well.

It Works just fine if i define everything like it is told in this wiki article:

http://reprap.org/wiki/ExtThermoCouple_1.0

But i now installed a heated bed with a Thermistor. When i declare it in my marlin fimware its not working. Both are measuring the temp. correct. (tested it with a lighter). But Cura does not allow to heat up the Hotend.

#define TEMP_SENSOR_0 -1

#define TEMP_SENSOR_1 0

#define TEMP_SENSOR_2 0

#define TEMP_SENSOR_3 0

#define TEMP_SENSOR_BED 1

I always get this message:

Error:Heated bed switched off. MAXTEMP triggered !!

Error:Printer stopped due to errors. Fix the error and use M999 to restart. (Temperature is reset. Set it after restarting)

If install 2 thermistors, one for extruder and one for the heated bed everythings just working fine.

#define TEMP_SENSOR_0 1

#define TEMP_SENSOR_1 0

#define TEMP_SENSOR_2 0

#define TEMP_SENSOR_3 0

#define TEMP_SENSOR_BED 1

What am i doing wrong?

Hardware: DIY UMO

Electronics: Ramps 1.4

What are these values set to?

 


#define BED_MINTEMP 5
#define BED_MAXTEMP 150

Also how *long* does it take for the error to occur? Immediately? Or after 10 (or more) seconds?

I recommend you go here

http://marlinbuilder.robotfuzz.com

and experiment with your current setup and only download Configuartion.h and use a program like winmerge to compare the Configuration.h files that you edited versus robotfuzz created.

 

Both are measuring the temp. correct. (tested it with a lighter). But Cura dows not allow to heat up the Hotend.

 

Yes but are both in the range above?

The weird thing is, that the thermocouple works if i do not define a second temp. sensor (the one for the heatbed) in the marlin firmware.

If i only use the thermocouple everything works fine.

Even if i use for hotend and heatbed a thermistor and do not use the thermocouple, it works.

But i really want to use my thermocouple ;-)

How do you have the pins defined? Is it possible you have the same pin assigned for both?

If not, does the thermocouple read correctly? In other words does it read room temperature?

How about when the thermisistor use used for both? Do they both read room temperature?

Do you have the pullup in correctly when using the thermisistor?

    • "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.
