#23 – HEATED BED RELAYS (AND AC) – BUILDING THE BIG PRINTER

https://youtu.be/QLNvtewyGk8 Hi everyone! This week I swapped the two DC heated pads for the anticipated AC heated pads. As these cannot be connected directly to the ramps I'm using two solid state relays to switch the two heated pads but in a different than expected way. The two relays are wired in series so if [...]

For that I bought a 610x300 aluminum plate, and after much thought I ordered what I thought it were three 300x200 heated beds from Amazon. A while later I bought the 300x300 cork plates for isolation and [...]
