PNP Z-probe connections....



  • Hey guys,

    New here, and i'm a noob when it comes down to electronics, i know how to solder and stuff, but i don't know anything about resistance etc...
    i've been looking all afternoon on how to wire my Zprobe.... i'm scared to do it, cause i found different solutions....

    i'm using a IME08-2N5PSZT0S that i want to connect to the Duet2Wifi. I've found this connection diagram, it's for the NPN, i'm using PNP.

    I read the explanation on the site link text

    I don't know where to start, do i really need the output to be at 3v? in the text is says says it can handle up to 30volts...

    i managed to reduce the voltage to 3volts when it's triggered, but when it's not triggered it's 8-9 volts...
    How does the IN knows the sensor is triggered, can anyone provide me a simple drawing how to hook it up, which resistors, and what values it supose to have triggered and not triggered? that would be very helpfull, i don't want to fry this board, it's awesome!

    Thanks in advance

    Pieter

    The wiring is as described in that link, and two 10K resistors are suitable. The input at the Z probe connector (connected to the junction of the two resistors) should be less than 1V when the probe is not triggered, and 3V or more when it it triggered.

    I'll try to get a wiring diagram added to the wiki page.



  • @dc42 Thanks, i've installed 2 new resistors, think i missed me on the color code before, now i'm using 1 of 10K and 1 of 30K, works perfectly, got 3 volts when triggered and 0 when not triggered 😄

    Sounds good!


 

Looks like your connection to Duet3D was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
