GT2560 A+ 3D printer controller board

GT2560 is a compact board that is integrated with the mighty function of the  Arduino Mega2560 +Ultimaker and Arduino Mega2560+ramps 1.4 on respect of both software and hardware and has more premium features: the streamlined interfaces effectively avoid the unnecessary troubles, well-regulated compaction of components highly integrated saves more space and easier to be mounted on most applications.

 

5 stepper motors, swappable driving modules, mighty ATmega2560 processor with 256k memory, 16MHz operating frequency, high-performance USB serial converter FT232RQ/CH340, all these make the GT2560 an ideal option for a 3D printer control board. What’s more, GT2560 can run over 12V to 24V which gives higher torque and higher rotation rate.

Update log:

1. A 3-pin straight pin is added to connect with 3D touch auto leveling sensor.

2. The USB connector will not provide 5V for the board, if you need to refresh the firmware, please provide external power supply.

3. The power port has been changed from hollow to solid one to provide higher current-carrying capability.

4. The three heater connecter has been changed into blue ones: 2-pin RC301 5.0mm 15A

Features:

1.Integrated with the mighty function of the Arduino Mega2560+Ultimaker and the Mega2560+ramps 1.4 kit , GT2560 can not only take full place them on respect of both software and hardware, but also features compact size, more convenient connection, and more stable.

2. Adopt ATmega2560 as the main control chip, coupled with the high-performance USB serial converter CH340C.  

3. The power pack: operating voltage is 12V-24V; double power supply design feeds for heatbed and logical part separately. The current is 12A for heatbed and 5A for other parts. The cooling fan can support 12V

4. The main circuit adopts SMD fuse tube, the diode added to the power port can provide reverse protection to the whole circuit, in addition, the 5V USB is USB port protected with 500mA Recoverable fuse.

5. 3 12v fan output and one PWM output for LED or other lighting equipment.

6. 3 55Amp MOSFET (with LED indicator, the actual output is restricted by the PCB board and the connector), all 3 MOSFET are equipped with heat sink to ensure sufficient heat dissipation and stable operation.

7. Support 5 A4988 stepper drivers (3 for X/Y/Z axis, and 2 for extruders); the subdivision of stepper motor can be setup by dial switch, eliminating jumper caps, easier to operate.

8. 3 temperature sensor input (100k thermistor is recommended)

9. Extended LCD and SD card interface support both LCD2004 and LCD 12864, with which you can print without your PC.

10. The firmware is the prevalent Marlin, which is known for its stability, usability, and high-performance.

 

* The specifications of Pin connectors:

Motor: XH (2.54mm-4pin)

Fan: PH (2.00mm-3pin)

 

Endstop and thermistor: XH (2.54mm-2pin)

    Just finished assembly of the I3 Pro W and the extruder motor will not turn. 1. Plug extruder into x driver and it turns. 2. Take stepper driver from x axis into extruder slot on control board it doesn't turn extruder. 3. Extruder stepper plugged into x axis slot on control board and it doesn'turn x anymore. 4. Even tried Extruder 2 slot with the original extruder driver and the x axis driver. Neither work there. I believe i have a bad control board and stepper driver for the extruder. Please advise.

    Hi, I just assembled the Rostock mini GS2 Pro. Love the machine btw. After connecting everything to the main board i noticed a little problem. The probe for bed levelling is the same micro switch as used on the axis end stops, only difference is the L shaped probe, so far nothing to worry about, two wires can be connected... the problem is that on the print board is a Z min and a 3d touch connector. which should i use? the 3d touch has a 3 wire connector so obvious i suspect it wil have a positive, a signal and a gnd pin. i'm a total newbie on the frontier of 3D DIY kits so here i could really use some help.

    • Zina Luo   |   07/28/2017

      Hi Johan,For G2S Pro, you should use the L shaped probe.

    When using a 24V power supply with this controller board, is 24V applied to the extruder heater ports?

      Hi Benjamin ,if you want the controller by 24V ,you also need make sure the extruder and the heat bed are 24V,or the controller will be burnt out by 24v .

    Hello, I have bought Reprap Prusa i3 Pro-B from ebay and it contains GT2560. It was working fine and I have no issues printing from USB, the issues started when I started upgrading the printer with lead screws and I needed to changed steps on z-axis. It seems printer board doesn't accept instruction from programmer. I am not sure what I am doing wrong and whenever the board is any good. I am suspecting that maybe programmer on boars is either not loaded or was removed after programming. Now my question is whenever I can update setting in the board to work or I need to buy new board, but I don't want to do it before making sure new board is the only option. Here is more information regarding my issue, I have raised it in Arduino forum: https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=431223.new#new

    Hi, I recently purchased a Prusa i3 Pro B equipped with GT2560 and all went well, I can print flawlessy; now I'm trying to implement the auto-leveling feature, but before to attempt changes on firmware I'd be sure I can restore old firmware. Could you kindly send me the original firmware? (francescangeli.f@gmail.com) Thanks in advance...

    I have a Geeetech Full Aluminium 3d Printer with a Sanguinololu board. I want to upgrade the Sanguinololu to this board. 1. Will I need new stepper drivers or can I use the ones from the old board. 2. Are there any changes needed top be done to the firmware to make this work on my printer? 3. Where can I get the latest firmware for this board and my printer? I notice that this board is included with the Geeetech Aluminium Pro printer. Will that firmware work with my printer?

    • William Kwok   |   08/31/2016

      1.You can use the old ones if they're all working fine.2.You can download the following firmware from here:http://www.geeetech.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=17046 (Prusa I3A 2560.zip, I3_pro_X.zip,Marlin-PI3_Pro_B.zip)The three firmares all fit your printer.

    Hi, I had this board for about 2 weeks and ran it on stock a4988. It ran fine, but I had drv8825 and when I try them at about .6v the motors make more noise and the board heat so much (I have 2 60mm fan on it) and I put an heatshink on the hot part. The drv are not very hot but the black thing between the second extruder driver and the .150 thing become crazy hot. Can I broke the board by printing like that or do you have an idea about what is happening ?

    • William Kwok   |   08/09/2016

        |   reply

      Hi,did you plug your drvs in a wrong direction?Cuz its plugging direction is different from A4988...And when you plug drv,you should change the subdivision of the motor(yes it the jumper caps,drv with one cap and A4988 with 3 caps as you saw).Finally,A4988 is recommended.

    Hi,Bob 1.Did your extruder motor work before?You can try swapping the extruder motor cable with cables of other motor,sometimes the motor cable is broken though it rarely happened. 2.About the engine wiring diagram,you can find it in the "Users Manual of GT2560.pdf" on this page.

    I have asked this question without getting an answer. Q:What is the warranty on the boards. I ask this because I have had my heater bed connection melt and burn weld it's plastic to the base of the plug and melt the solder and fall off the board and that a possible transistor is the culprit, and that I also have a noticeable scorch/burn mark on one of the (4 pin) power lines on the main connector,from the power supply, so could also be the power supply.

    • rita xiang   |   06/21/2016

        |   reply

      Hello Frank, the warranty is 180 days. We have changed the bed heating connecter into the blue one as you can see in the picture, the melting will not happen again. Regarding to the burn mark on the power supply connector, pay attention that never hot Plug andUnplug the wire.

    • Frank Mizzi   |   06/23/2016

        |   reply

      Was anything else replaced because i can see a light brown mark on the track from the transistor. As I stated in my comment I have a scorch mark on one of the lines from the power supply at the plug on the board and was concerned that it might have been a power supply issue than from a plug issue. mainly from the fact that the track on the board from the transistor to the plug was also slightly burnt in a light gold tint, making it look like was getting hot as well. I am trying to supply you with as much information as I can from what I can see. I have recently ordered a board of a seller on ebay as of no shipping cost, but that it is of the older type of board, and that I have concern of this happening again but wonder if just replacing the plug will be enough to solve it as I could do that my self with a soldering iron.

    Hi All. I am using a GeeetechGT2560 controller board, with Davinci 2.0 hardware. My Extruder extrudes well under manual control, (from PronterFace or Repetier-Host), but, during prints, its stops extruding, after a few layers and starts clicking or skipping. A) I have tried several times to adjust the potentiometer on the extruder motor driver board, A4988, finding the right point between when the motor stops turning, when the power is too low and the motor stops turning when the power is too high. As I mentioned, it works smooth under manual control. I still cant get more than 2 or 3 layers to print, because, somewhere after the first few layers, between 2 and 5, the extruder motor starts skipping. B) I have tried printing in PLA at 185 and 190 degrees. The clicking starts either way. C) I dont believe the motor is getting overheated, as it starts clicking after just a few layers being printed. It only feel warm to touch at this point, often, even room temperature. D) The Da Vinci 2.0 has two extruders. I have tried both motors, with different cogs and idlers, both with same results. Hence, I am sure the motors/cogs are not faulty. E) I have tried two different Motor Driver Boards, A4988's, on the same output on the GT2560. Same results. F) I cleaned the nozzle several times, confirming each time after cleaning, that PLA flows freely, through the nozzle, under manual control. G) I have tried slicing with Slic3r and Cura. Print preview shows XY movement and X axis and Y axis move accordingly. I have no idea what to try next as I am out of ideas. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. I have spent a month now, trying to install this GT2560 and still cant get a print done.

    • Mariusz Matłosz   |   12/17/2016

      Why not? You have to connect "+" to 5V on board (lower left side of atmega chip, next to C37). Signal to SIG, ground to GND (on temp JST slot). You also need to desolder R23 for 1st head thermocouple, R21 for 2nd and R4 for heatbed. These three resistors are located below temp JST slots. If need only for head, desolder only R23. It is exactly mega + ultimaker board. Even names are the same. It will void warranty for sure.

    If you run the board at 24 volts are the fans regulated to 12v, or are they just 24v too? Considering this as a replacement for the RUMBA board, and that seems to be the only thing (other than 3rd extruder) missing.

      I'm a bit confused, support told me that when I connect a 24v power supply, also the hot-end heater and all other connectors will have a 24volt output, including the PWM fan and non controlled fans.
