Input voltage for GT2560?

Post by aaronherrick » Fri Jul 03, 2015 11:25 pm

I have been monitoring my power supply (12V, 15A, 180W): with no load it gives 11.4V, when connected to my GT 2560 and the heaters are on (bed and extruder) voltage drops to 8.6V. Is that normal, or an indication my power supply is being over worked? Can I use a 24V, 15A, 360W power supply with the GT 2560?

hi,aaronherrick.i have 2 suggestions.the first suggestion ,you could use supply power which voltage is 12v but with more power. Maybe the load of GT2560 is heavy,so the voltage drops to 8.6v.the second suggestion,if you use 24V, 15A, 360W power supply with the GT 2560,you should use the extruder ,hotbed,fans which voltage is 24v.i suggest you use the first method.
