Accelerometer on E3D V6

Hi all,
Does the Accelerometer have to be a aligned in any way with the E3D head?
It seems that its the case with the HE280 (as per instructions one side is aligned with the flat of the heated end) but there isn't any guidance for other heads?
Thanks in advance,
J.

Now to stress test the Fotek and the PSU along with the new 24V bed. Thanks for everyones help, such a friendly, useful forum here...

Re: Faster Heated Bed Issue

Measured across solder points on the bed I get 0V when they are connected to the Rambo though I get 11.27V so close enough to 12v not to matter. The Resistance of both beds is around 1.2 ohms. Not measured the amps running through it yet as I only have a 10A Amp Meter so need to get one that can mea...

Re: Faster Heated Bed Issue

So, I changed the SSR to a DC to DC one. 3-32V in 5-110V out and rated to 60A. Its this one: m Different issue. SSR still comes on buy there is no heat at the bed. Checked all connectors and 24V is being provided (23.7) but there is no heat at either the 12V or the 24V beds. Could it be there isn't ...

Re: Faster Heated Bed Issue

Not the one I used anyway. To be honest will be keeping an eye on the replacements. I have order 2 different ones, both from reputable suppliers (significantly more expensive too) and both supposedly handle 60 and 100 amps respectively so hoping now I have a proper DC to DC on the way it'll be fine....

Re: Faster Heated Bed Issue

I have only just noticed.
My SSR is DC in to AC Out. I think that might be the issue.
Looks like ordering a DC -> DC one and seeing if that fixes it :)

Re: Faster Heated Bed Issue

Hi Dwight,
I am seeing a steady 12V at the SSR input.
The LED On the SSR is also lighting and goes off at the set temperature too.
So, I don't think its the input of the SSR that is the issue sadly.
Thanks,
Jason.

Faster Heated Bed Issue

Hi all, Issues with my 24v Heated bed. Have set it up as per the picture below but have the same issue whether I use 12v or 24v beds (have a V3 24V Bed as well as the standard bed that came with the printer). So what happens is: 1. Switch on Printer, 2. Switch on Switched 24V PSU, 3. Set a temperatu...

Re: Faster Heated Bed

Thanks Xeno,
Thats what I thought.
The resistor I had in mind is in that range too.
I just wanted to make sure I don't blow anything and check my understanding.
Thanks :)

Re: Faster Heated Bed

Hi all, Long time reader, first time poster here. I built my V2 only around 4 months ago but took this long to sort out a faulty log in here. I also want to upgrade to a faster heating bed so the 24V route seems to be the right one. To do that I have bought a 24V 25A 600W PSU, a 24-280V 40A SSR and ...
