A V6 aluminium HeaterBlock upgrade kit to upgrade an old thermistor clamping type V6 block to the cartridge type Heaterblock to enable the use of cartridge type temperature sensors.
Cartidge type HeaterBlock
The V6 HeaterBlock is a core part of the E3D ecosystem as the standard heater block used in most of our HotEnds.
Cartridge type thermistor
Cartridge type thermistors use a Semitec 104GT thermistor, potted in a cylindrical stainless steel cartridge with a high conductivity ceramic based adhesive. The legs are insulated with fibreglass sleeving and terminated with a Molex Microfit 3.0 connector. This makes it easy to disconnect your entire HotEnd without the need for rewiring, especially when paired with our high precision heater cartridges.
Supplied with an M3 grub screw to secure a cartridge-style Thermistor, PT100 or Thermocouple, and an M3 dome head screw to clamp the heater cartridge.
