Hi guys. Really nice that topic is still alive.
Just finished reading that I missed )))

Does this sound familiar to anyone, or am I the only one experiencing this?


I had the same isue. But I solved that swapping touch sensor to optic one.
It looks now like this

yeah, I have optic sensing as well, but it does not support instant set back upon switching cartridges. I prefer touch sensing.

Hi Talkos, please where did you learn how to create custom PID profiles? Is there a procedure I overlooked?

I just wanted to share that I had purchased the completed PCBs that @vulkan35 has linked above and can confirm everything is working properly! I received the kit ~7 days after ordering and was able to put everything together without a hitch. It even came with an updated contact sensor board based on @minkok design.

The kit definitely helps bring this into the more affordable range and widens the audience. I do kind of wish I got to solder up a board myself however the parts alone would've been ~200 dollars range and then another 10-20 dollars for PCB to be made. I did get an extra set of pcbs from the seller so maybe I will end up assembling my own in the future. 🙂

Designed and printed a case for use with the T245, still finalizing some of the details but really happy with how it turned out.

On a side note, I currently have a fuse on the primary coil and have had to size it up to a 3A slow blow fuse due to the inrush current into the toroidal transformer. I was looking into adding in a AC slow start circuit such as this one : https://www.pcbway.com/blog/technology/Inrush_Current_Limiter__Soft_Starter__for_AC_DC_Loads.html Has anyone done something similar?

I've also seen @Iwanushka posting some custom firmware updates, are there any plans to source control on github/gitlab? Would be great to be able to contribute to the most up to date community firmware.

Hi 4nthonylin, nice set up. Where you got Pen holder plate? Is it from aluminum or Zn, Al, Cu alloy? Mine is from aluminum and I found it a bit inconvenient - touching to rust free steel  from the pen it gets oxidized quickly. I need some better solution.
You can use NTC Inrush Current Limiters, I think it is simpler option, but if you have a good main socket and stable mains , you do not need any.

2 separate heater control channels

it is with 2 x channels like with put 2 x 245Handle   ? ? ?
