@monster-delta said in smart effector not working:
The green light does flash randomly without any kind of pattern to it
If it flashes randomly with no heaters or fans turned on, and you haven't increased the sensitivity, that suggests a hardware fault - possibly in the effector, but more likely a bad crimp connection in the +3.3V or ground wire between the 8-pin connector and the Duet.
We use the 6-pin Microfit 3.0 connector on the Smart Effector to connect the heater and fan wires. They are good, however once you have inserted the pins into the shell, they are impossible to remove without a special (and expensive) tool.
Due to the risk of miswiring, we put the low voltage connections for the nozzle contact probe and the temperature sensor on a separate connector.

@CaLviNx great to hear that, do you have a pic of your setup? thanks
erm no not on me so to speak, because im on rotation at work in Saudi and the printer is at home for the next 5 weeks until i am back home again sorry.
I think that was part of it.
This is the new config that works. The facebook group helped me figure out. It is working pretty well finally. Now I just have the get the prints looking a little better with the 0.8 nozzle.

Thanks for the reply. I emailed Blue Eagle Labs about the Haydn rods before making this post and they said "When it comes to temperature, the bottleneck would be the magnets. N50 magnets are good to 100C. "
Please follow the commisisoning instructions at https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Smart_effector_and_carriage_adapters_for_delta_printer?revisionid=HEAD#Section_Commissioning and let us know at which step it fails and what happens.
I have never had any problems with the E3D pushfit collets. Whereas I have had one of the metal teeth of a screw-in pushfit fitting break off and wreck the hot end.
Perhaps the OD of your Bowden tube is under-sized? You might want to buy some new collects and some Capricorn tubing from E3D.
@dc42 Wow! That's messed up. I would never have guessed nor figured that out. Makes sense and sure enough I had like poles at the top of the smart effector right near each other. Switched it around and poof it works. Thanks for the help!
Looks like your connection to Duet3D was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
