Printrboard heatbed bang-bang configuration

Printrboard heatbed bang-bang configuration

Postby Mad_Gouki » 2014-Feb-Sat-12-Feb

Hi,
I just set up my heated bed and I'm using a G8QN relay. It's a mechanical relay, and when I use it wired to the heatbed pins on the printrboard, it constantly clicks while driving the heater at about 4hz. I'm guessing the pins are set to drive a heated bed with PID, but I'd like to use bang-bang. How do I go about doing this? I am assuming I need to compile the marlin firmware from github/PxT/Marlin and comment out something or other. What do I need to comment out if that's the case?

Is there a way to use the m304 G code command to make it just power full or 0 and no PWM?

Thanks

I figured I would have to recompile from source. It seems fairly straightforward, I'll update on how progress goes.
Is there a way to dump my current firmware settings? I've calibrated my X and Y fairly accurately and don't want to lose those values.
Any reason you suggest unified v2 over unified v3? Which one actually comes stock on the printrbot?

Re: Printrboard heatbed bang-bang configuration

Postby Mad_Gouki » 2014-Feb-Sat-13-Feb

So, after thinking about it for a few moments and digging through my box of tools, I came upon a great solution which required no compilation. As a programmer by trade, I enjoy not having to do such work in my free time (especially not having to set up a development environment and tweak every little setting). My limited experience with electronics gave me the idea to smooth out the PWM signal, so that's exactly what I did.

That said, here's what I did.

Get a 470uf capacitor (mine is rated 35v). shove it in pins 1 and 4 of the HOTBED connector on the board.

That's all.

I'd post a link to the image but it won't let me because it's too spammy for a new user, so I've attached it.

I'm not sure if it matters which direction it goes, but if the cap blows I'll let you know which way it shouldn't go.

That's how I hooked the cap up. I have a lot of trouble finding information like the pinouts and their polarity for the printrboard online. It seems like a lot of the printrbot stuff is not easy to locate. Anyway, it's working great and I haven't smelled anything burning or seen any blue smoke. I realize it gives the relay an intermediate voltage between the spikes, but I'm willing to accept that I may break the relay if it saves me half a day of compiling a new firmware for the board. It seems like it closes pretty quickly (within half a second?) once the current is turned off to the relay. I wonder if a larger capacitor would be better or worse in this case, but I'm not going to mess with it since it seems to be working for the moment.

once you get the arduino apps working it takes about 30s to recompile and another 2 mins to flash and test. its worth getting it set up that way there is nothing in the way if you need to tweek the firmware

I have the same problem since I flashed to unified 3 my relay keeps clicking as soon as I hit the heat the bed button
I had to use a rely because I'm using a 8x12 bed....
Anyway if anyone with the knowledge could modify the firmware for us so we don't have to add capacitors...
I also heard about solid state relay being silent but less reliable that mechanical ones any chance it would work better ?

Cheers

Re: Printrboard heatbed bang-bang configuration

Postby ivymike1031 » 2014-Mar-Sun-14-Mar

could do the mechanical version of your capacitor, and give the thermistor a larger thermal inertia to read from. I have an Al bed about 8mm thick, so it takes a while to heat/cool and the cycle frequency on my mechanical relay is very long ... minutes. Right now I'm printing with the bed at 78C and the indicator LED strip I put on the bed has just turned off for the first time during this print (I'm about 6 minutes in). It turned back on about 30 sec later ...

I suppose it's possible that the firmware is controlling the bed differently too.

Re: Printrboard heatbed bang-bang configuration

Postby protom » 2014-Mar-Sun-16-Mar

so it would be possible to use this kind of SSR ?
Sunkee-Solid-SSR-25-3-32VDC-SSR-25DD

if it is I suppose the fact that the printrbot sending signal that keeps my mechanical relay switching every half second is not good
or does the SSR behave differently and make this a non issue ?

thanks a lot for your reply retireeJ
just a quick last question what would be the wiring for the ssr ?
would I need a diode ?

You could try browsing through this post: viewtopic.php?f=80&t=4975&p=32628
and this post: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2665

With a solid-state relay you don't need a diode.

Re: Printrboard heatbed bang-bang configuration

Postby protom » 2014-Mar-Thu-23-Mar

Thanks retireejay i read the post but my SSR only has
one - and one + input labelled 4 and 3 rated 3~32v Dc
And
One - and one + output labelled as 1 and 2
Rated 24~220v Dc
So where should I plug
the two signal wires coming from my printerboard heat bed output
The two wires going to my heatbed
The two wires coming from my power supply

Also will it work since output is marked as 24~220v and i guess I'm only outputting 12v dc ?

Thanks again for your help

Cheers

I used a 12v car solenoid, $4.14 wired the coil into the printer board, connected the heatbed to the powersupply via tne contacts.

Gives a little click as the bed turns on and off, but its not a problem, and it tells me its working.

I have the ability to rebuild my firmware, so im not using any of the printrbot supplied source or hex files, so seting it to bang bang is trivial. Im not using a printrboard anymore, as mine died.

Low tech, but works like a charm.

so I finally figured it out
1-load/positive from power supply
2-red/positive to heatbed
3-positive from the printrboard heated connector
4-negative from the printrboard heated connector

solder black front he heatbed to black from the power supply

On my fotek ssr, I added a heatsink with a fan to cool the fins as I've noticed that they can get warm. I'll try and get some pics together.

Hi protom, I'm just wondering if your 40A fotek SSR worked out fine in the end using your 12V bed please? I guess you added a fan to it in the end too? Thanks.

If you're into the giant auction site, try a search for "SSR 40DD" (or 25DD) without the quotes. Check the description to make sure it'll work with 12V (it might anyway, but best to have it rated for it).
