Ormerod proximity sensor upgrade
October 31, 2015 04:54AM
I have now run out of the Ormerod height sensor boards with the thermostatic fan control, and it is unlikely that I will make any more. However, I have plenty of mini differential IR sensor boards available. These are proving to be very popular and are standard parts of E3D's BigBox printer kit and Think3dPrint3d's latest Mini Kossel kit. For more details, see [miscsolutions.wordpress.com].

Unlike the standard Ormerod proximity sensor, mine works on almost any bed surface. So it does not require white targets and can be used anywhere on the bed. Please note, I do not yet have a design for a printable mount to fit this sensor to an Ormerod hot end.
