Ubis 13HT Requirements

Postby KreskinsFolly » 2018-Jun-Wed-22-Jun

I have 2 questions about the UBIS 13 High Temp hotend:

1) Is the UBIS 13HT (High Temp) hot end compatible with my Simple Metal with the Rev F4 board?
The PrintrBot site says you need the Rev F6 but I thought that might be just because that's the board they currently sell.

2) The other 'requirement' to use the UBIS 13HT is a firmware update: "Temperature sensor table must be updated for PT1000 w standard 4.7k ohm pull up"
but there's no indication as to where to get the updated firmware.
I've looked through the PrintrBot GitHub and I can only find what looks like the generic firmware for the Simple Metal.
Does anyone have a source for that firmware with the updated temp sensor table?

Thanks in advance :)

1) I agree with you, I don't see any reason why the F4 would not work.

2) If you download the source code, you can look inside "Configuration.h" and see a number of different temperature tables available for selection. A PT1000 sensor is a platinum resistance sensor, not a thermistor, so be sure your configuration is set up for this.

Thanks for the reply, I checked out the source code, there's no table for the PT1000.
I sent in a ticket asking for the modified firmware but not holding out hope.

pt1000 is listed here in current Marlin code...

Are you trying to use old Marlin code? You'd be better off with current Marlin. I have a thread here with a link to patched Marlin 1.1.8. You could config that for the pt1000 and you'd be set.
