PT100's are high temperature, high accuracy temperature sensors that you can now on your E3D-v6 HotEnd instead of a thermistor or thermocouple. PT100's are able to measure higher temperatures than thermistors - upto 400C, and are more accurate then both thermistors and thermocouples in general. Our PT100 sensors are also very easy to handle, being of a metal cartridge construction that is secured with a set screw, no more fiberglass sleeving or clamping washer.
If you want experiment with printing the crazy high temperature materials, get more accurate temperature readings, and have a much more robust and easy to assemble temperature sensor then a PT100 is an ideal option.
This is a kit that provides everything you need to get up and running with a PT100 sensor on most machines. Requires a controller board that is running Marlin or Repetier with a spare analog input pin.
This kit contains a PT100 sensor, a heater block that is compatible with that sensor, an electrical amplifier board to connect the PT100 to your printer controller board, and the required screws for holding everything together. This kit is compatible with all E3D HotEnds except for Cyclops and Volcano.
Did you know we now make PT100 Volcano blocks as well?! Check it out here.
