About to order some Duet items - raising a question
March 03, 2018 03:24PM
I have been letting my delta sleep for a couple of years ( it had a breakdown and I just didn't feel like I had the time with a newborn...) and the other day I got a sudden urge to get it going again.
So I've spent some days reading up about this this stuff and I see there's been a whole lot of development.

One of the last upgrades I did to my printer was a Duet 0.6 and dc42's IR-sensor.
I liked that upgrade a lot, and seeing how thignd have progressed I feel I want to take it even further with Haydn's rods and a smart-effector, but here comes my question:
If I order a Duet-WiFi, Haydn's rods and a smart effector with the "e3d V6 (no Heatsink, 24V ) e3d V6 with PT100"-option, will I also have to order the pt100 daugther-bord or is that included?

You would need to order the PT100 daughter board as well.

I see.

Thank you for the clarification.

There is also experimental support for PT1000 (as distinct from PT100) sensors in RepRapFirmware using the normal thermistor connections, so that the daughter board is not needed. The accuracy isn't as good as for a PT100 (but may well beat a thermistor), also the resolution isn't as good. That's why the support is experimental.

See [duet3d.dozuki.com] for a comparison.
