Thermistors


The hotend and heat bed thermistor are both 100K NTC resistor with beta 3950.
The stock hotend thermistor uses a glass bead thermistor.
The stock heat bed uses a SMD thermistor but can be easily replaced with a glass bead type.

A few stock replacement options listed below.


As of motion controller firmware version 26 the MP Select Mini is no longer limited to only using a 3950 thermistor for the hotend.
Version 27 added this ability to the heat bed.

Using the custom G-code command M561 the thermistor type can be changed for the hotend and heat bed.
The hotend and heat bed can each use a different type of thermistors.


M561 - Change thermistor type

See the Extended G-code Table page for instructions on how to use custom G-code command M561 - Change thermistor type (Hotend and/or Heat bed)

Type P0 = Default or EPCOS 100K

EPCOS 100K Thermistors B57540G0104F000, B57560G104F, and B57560G1104F have similar Beta values compared to the stocks Beta value of 3950. Because of this you can use any of them as replacement thermistors. Use the stock thermistor setting of Type P0.

Type P1 = 104GT-2 or 104NT-4-R025H42G

Characteristics of 104GT-2 and 104NT-4-R025H42G are nearly identical. Type P1 is used for either thermistor.
