TriangleLab Filament Runout Sensor
Free shipping in Canada for orders over $140 before tax. (via Canada Post)
This filament run out sensor unit is design to detect whether your printer has run out of filament. During printing, if the unit detects that there is no filament, it will send a signal to the main board. With correct firmware settings the printing will pause until the operator reloads the filament and resumes the print.
- It works with all available materials;flexible,clear,opaque,filled,etc.
- The unit can handle as many filaments simultaneously.As soon as one of them will be missing,the unit will send a message to the next one,up to your main board.
- Two screws are provided so you can install it where you want.
- Works with almost any printer.
- Durable injection modeling casing and industrial grade components.
- Supply Voltage: 3.3-5V
- Operating Temperature: below 80℃
- Filament Diameter: 1.75MM(1-2MM)
- Filament Presence: LOW
- Filament Absent: HIGH(equal to Supply Voltage)
Please install the unit after the spool and before your extruder. Fix it on your printer along the path of filament Please pay attention to the direction indicated by the arrow on the body. Insert the 4mm PTFE tube in both sides of the unit for guiding the filament and helping to reduce friction.
- Red 3-5V
- Yellow/Blue Signal
- Black GND
Servo pins always have the right pins: 5V,Ground and Signal. Most endstop pins will have the same 3 pins,and sometimes only Signal and Ground.If you only have these two,there should be a 5V somewhere else on your main board. In theory you can choices any input pins on your main board for the signal.
If you want install more than one unit on same printer, just connect the units to each other then connect to the main board at the end. They are parallel connections on the circuit Level. The signal output can’t tell which filament is run out actually, but the flashing LED on the unit shows which is out of filament.

Make sure your firmware has the filament runout feature,you need Marlin 1.1.0-RC7 or newer.If you are using an older version,contact your 3D printer manufacturer or update your firmware configuration manually.
Make sure your firmware has the filament runout feature,you need Repetier 0.92.9 or newer.If you are using an older version,contact your 3D printer manufacturer or update your firmware configuration manually.

Pause when out of filament
This configuration allows you to use a pin to detect when the machine is out of filament. When the switch is hit by the filament not being present, the machine is put into pause.
Another switch is configured to allow you to resume the machine once the button is pressed.
Additional configuration allows you to specify commands that are executed when the machine suspends, and when it resumes.switch.filamentout.enable true # Enable this moduleswitch.filamentout.input_pin 1.30^ # Pin where filament out button is connectedswitch.filamentout.output_on_command suspend # Suspend commandswitch.resume.enable true # Enable this moduleswitch.resume.input_pin 1.31^ # Pin where resume button is connectedswitch.resume.output_on_command resume # Resume commandafter_suspend_gcode G91_G0E-5_G0Z10_G90_G0X-50Y-50 # Gcode to run after suspend, retract then get head out of waybefore_resume_gcode G91_G1E1_G90 # Gcode to run after temp is reached but before resume - do a prime
