What are the main differences between the Picobilical and the original V0 Umbilical mod?
- The toolhead PCB uses a screw terminal for connecting the hotend heater instead of the original JST-XH connector. The polarity of the fan connectors are also reversed in the LDO toolheadPCB – This brings its polarity in-line with hartk’s toolhead PCBs, as well as the default polarity of most fan connectors. The Frame PCB is heavily modified and features lots of extra electronics (see features)
I already have the original V0 umbilical mod, can I reuse it?
- Yes, the 14pin connector and its pinout is 100% compatible with the original V0 umbilical mod. So in theory, you should be able to reuse the toolhead PCB and the 14pin umbilical cable.
What material is the umbilical cable made of?
- The 14pin umbilical cable uses high strand count UL1332 FEP cabling, most of the wires are 24AWG gauge while some of the current carrying wires are 18AWG gauge.
I use an Orbiter / LGX Lite / Sherpa Mini extruder instead of mini Afterburner, can I use this mod?
- Yes, since the original Mini Afterburner, Orbiter, and LGX Lite extruders all use the same stepper motor (or at least the same form factor). This mod should be compatible with those extruders.
