Installing a Timer

Postby Kobar » Tue Nov 12, 2019 11:09 am

Our Raise is based in the university and I don't have access in the nights or weekends to turn the machine off.
We also can't use RaiseCloud for some reasons ...

I want to ask if it is a problem to use a timer which simply turns the machine off.
Since it doesn't have a shutdown process it should be okay shouldn't it?

Best wishes,

In case you didn't know what I exactly mean:

The missing term is "digital electric timer"

Maybe you should indicate what model of printer it is ? Mine is an E2 and I turn it on and off for the power distribution block it is connected, I cannot easily access power switch at the rear of the printer. Do sounds to me to be a problem, it is even able to recover in case of AC power loss during a print, up to now never has to test it.
E2 + Prusa Mini (soon) <- UM 2+ <- Replicator2

Unfortunately, at this time there is no way to completly power off the machine for the Pro2 series. The E2 is equipped with a power saving feature that can power off the LED's and touchscreen.

There are switchable sockets or socket strips via WiFi. That could solve your problem.
