Problem with HBK for UO

Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem with HBK for UO

My Ultimaker original worked fine until after 8 months of waiting i got and installed heated bed kit.

The problem is that when everything is connected as it should be, ulticontroller shows MAX TEMP ERROR.

If I disconnect the black wires that goes from heated plate to HBK PCB - ulticontroler shows 70 C/0C (the bed is cold, but it shows like it has 70 C).

If I disconnect the cable that goes from Ulti. shield pins TEMP3 to HBK PCB pins BED I can heat the bed but cannot control the bed temperature (it heats up to max).

I don`t know what is wrong. Is the HBK PCB destroyed? Is the whole HBK design so bed?

    Is it possible you mixed up the wires for the temp sensor (thin black ones) and for the heater pcb (thick gray ones) when fasten them on the heated bed?

    No that is´t the problem cause i have already tried that.

    If I have everything connected only the black wire that goes from shield to HBK PCB is disconnected i dont get max temp error, but i also have 0 C for bed temperature. As soon as I touch the connector with black wire a get the max temp message.

    If you tried to heat up the temp sensor I guess it is destroyed..

    But how to check if temp sensor is destroyes and where is it located (on HBK PCB or Ultimaker shield).

    I have checked resistance between temp sensor wires and on a resistor of heated plate and they both show about 112 Ohm-if that has any importance.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
