PT100 - can't setup channel on Tool, only on bed

  • Hi!
    I good finally my Duet and doing some setup. I can't get PT100 channel mapped to Tool 0, the command M305 P1 X200 makes nothing and when I run M305 P0 X200 the temperature is showed on the bed. What I am doing wrong? Attached my config.g

    ```Probably I am not understanding some g-code command.

  • Oh that is strange, I changed M305 P1 T100000 B4138 C0 R4700 X200 to just M305 P1 X200 and it works now. As far I know other parameters should be ignored when X200 jest present?

    The R parameter is no longer ignored when using a PT100 sensor, it is the reference resistor value (default 400)

  • Hmmm maybe the RepRapFirmware Configuration Tool should change it to 400 (in the entry box) or skip it if you select RTD sensor on a heater?

  • yes I agree just ran one thru the configurator and it does indeed leave all the params in there.

    Thanks for pointing this out. It will be fixed soon.
