In continuation of the evolution of the products related to the parts that are part of the extruder, E3D has designed a new temperature measuring element. This element is an Upgrade Kit that has a PT100, which replaces the thermistor cartridges. The PT100 of E3D are sensors able to measure temperatures up to 400ºC with a high precision (of tenth of a degree), qualities increasingly demanded by the users of 3D printers. These sensors are very simple to assemble in the Heater Block v6 E3D, you just have to introduce it in its corresponding housing and tighten the security screw, no further operation is needed.
Certain materials of great potential such as thel Taulman Tritan-BluPrint (290ºC) or the PEEK (345ºC) need a printing temperature much higher than usual and a very meticulous control to get a piece of quality, something that many 3D printers aren't able to reach. Therefore, E3D has this PT100 Kit that eliminates one of the most common problems when printing this type of material.
The PT100 Kit includes everything necessary for the 3D printer: an electric amplifier board to connect the PT100 to the control board of the 3D printer and 1 m of extension cable.
If only the temperature sensor is required, there is an option to purchase it separately. In this case the temperature sensor would be included, as well as an extension cable.
It should be noted that in most cases an amplifier board with 5V supply and a signal pin will be required. It is recommended to check the requirements of the printer before choosing the kit or the sensor.
Both products are compatible with all 3D printers on the market that use a controller board that runs Marlin or Repetier and a free analog input pin.
