Where to buy 10k thermistor for the heatbed? Reference
December 24, 2012 01:49PM
Hello,

I bought a complete reprap kit and I'm trying to build everything...

I blew off my 10k thermistor... the wire breaks just near the component. Impossible to fix!

Where can I buy another 10k thermistor? What's the reference? If it's possible, I prefer to buy it on Farnel or RS component.

Thank you!

I read all the informations on the wiki and I found this:
[reprap.org]
[reprap.org]
Others:
[knoxmakers.org]
[blog.reprap.org]


All 100k thermistors are documented but not the 10k!!! All thermistors were from EPCOS. I did some research on Farnell and RS-Components and I found these interresting documents:
[docs-europe.electrocomponents.com]
[docs-europe.electrocomponents.com]
[docs-europe.electrocomponents.com]

I think that I need to get B57551G1103F or 0103F?

Ok, I command a B57560G103F and B57550G103F. The difference is the diameter 1.3 vs 2.3mm .
I couldn't find a B57540G103F (diameter 0.8mm) in Europe (+25€ from USA).

If you speak about this file: [github.com]
They only say: 10k thermistor

I was able to source a replacement for my reprappro from sparkfun 10K Thermistor. It is quite a bit larger than the original, but I was able to drill the hole in the heatbed out to fit, and used some thermal paste to improve the heat transfer. The thermistor calibration value needed to be updated in the firmware as well, B25/85 to 3977. It seems to work better than the original since it is not as thin and is less prone to breaking.

Finally, I used:
EPCOS - B57560G104F - THERMISTOR, NTC
EPCOS - B57560G103F - THERMISTOR, NTC

Datasheets:
[www.farnell.com]
[www.farnell.com]

I must change beta values for both thermistor:
M304 H0 B3450 R4700 T10000
M304 H1 B4036 R4700 T100000

Followed by M500 to store these informations in non-volatile memory
