PT100s 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 - up to 400C and are more accurate than 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 fibreglass sleeving or clamping washer.
If you want to 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, an electrical amplifier board to connect the PT100 to your printer controller board. This kit is compatible with all E3D HotEnds that use the newer cartridge-style thermistors.
