PT100's are high temperature, high accuracy temperature sensors that you can now use on your E3D-v6 HotEnd instead of a thermistor or thermocouple. PT100's are able to measure higher temperatures than thermistors - upto 400C, and are more accurate then both thermistors and thermocouples in general. Our PT100 sensors are also very easy to handle, being of a metal cartridge type construction that is secured with a set screw, no more fiberglass sleeving or clamping washer.
The PT100 sensor will not fit in the standard E3D Hotends, but can be used with E3D-v6, Chimera, Lite6, and Kraken by using the PT100 Heater Block available in the spares and extras section.
Please be aware that a PT100 is not the same as a thermistor and unless your electronics explicitly supports RTD Sensing devices you will need an amplifier board.
The Ultimaker 2 uses PT100 sensors by default, and this sensor allows you to connect your E3D Hotend and Ultimaker electronics with no alteration to the electronics or firmware of the Ultimaker 2.
