Re: Cetus3D MkII on 24V?

I can't give you an official answer, but mine is still going strong on 24V (From Mean Well 250W 24V supply) with no issues at all. I've also wired up both heating elements in the bud to the wire terminals so they are BOTH controlled by my TinyFab headbed driver (aka: mosfet board) under the control ...

Re: Cetus3D MkII on 24V?

So, I might as well answer the question. After reviewing every IC on the main board, I found nothing on there that couldn't handle a bit higher voltage. All the 5V and 3.3V stuff was fed from a DC-DC 5V converter that could handle way more than 24V. So, I hooked it up to my 30V bench supply and dial...

Cetus3D MkII on 24V?

Question: Can the Cetus3D MkII be powered by 24V? It looks like the stepper drivers can handle it with problems (DRV8824). I guess the question is can the other "high" voltage caps handle 24V as well as the voltage regulators for the 5V and (I think) 3.3V supplies? The reason I ask is I have a pair ...
