Dual Extruder Changing Servo

Recommended Posts

Posted · Dual Extruder Changing Servo

I'm actually constructing a new printhead with a dual extruder and a lifting system. Therefore I need a servo.

1. Has the Ultimaker 2 board a free PWM connector?

2. Can I use every RC Servo on these PWM connector?

3. Do I need a special PWM Servo driver?

And an additional question because I want to change the fan system. The Ultimaker 2 fans are powered by 12V, arn't they?

Thanks for informations,

    OK I'm no electronic engineer! I can only see two pwm connectors used for fan and led. Am I right that's there no pwm connector left for a servo on the Ultimaker2 mainboard?

    The only two gcode controlled pwn connections on um2 (as far as I know) are led and fan yeah.

    For just pwn there's a 24v (designed for board cooling fan). But can't be controlled it's always on.
