Firmware Configuration for EPCOS Modular M3 Stud Thermistor

Modular M3 Stud thermistor is based on non-obsolete EPCOS 100K Thermistor B57560G1104F. Part designed for use in 3D printer extruders. For safety and long life - do not run over 280C.

Marlin

Reconfigure your firmware for the EPCOS 100K Thermistor B57560G1104F: In configuration.h:

  • #define TEMP_SENSOR_0 1

For safety it is strongly recommended to do the following:

  • Set the minimum temperature to detect bad wiring (HEATER_0_MINTEMP 5 in configuration.h)

In newer versions of Marlin there are extra features for Thermal Runaway Protection should your thermistor come loose. Upload the new firmware to your electronics.

Repetier

Use thermistor definition number 8:

  • #define EXT0_TEMPSENSOR_TYPE 1

For safety it is strongly recommended to do the following:

  • Set the Minimum defect temperature to ensure that the thermistor shorting out is caught by the firmware.

New in Online Configuration Tool (v092) are the two options to also improve safety:

  • Decouple hold variance and Decouple min temp. rise to detect the thermistor coming loose. These must be set appropriately for your system to ensure that they work properly.

Upload the new firmware to your electronics.

Smoothieware

Use thermistor the following definition:

  • temperature_control.hotend.thermistor  EPCOS100K

Upload the new firmware to your electronics.
