Beacon H

$80.00$91.00

Eddy current displacement sensor for homing and surface scanning in 3D printers.

Works exclusively with Klipper. Comes fully assembled and includes a USB cable.

WARNING: Requires a conductive surface or substrate on printer bed to work. Bed stacks that include oversized fixed magnets are not recommended and may not work with Beacon.

In Stock: Ships in 1-3 days

Eddy current surface scanner for 3D printers:

  • Native displacement output – no z motion necessary for sensing
  • Scan mode mesh – dense grid sampling in a matter of seconds
  • Low thermal drift – minimized by design, active compensation for everything else

RevH:

  • High Temp Accelerometer – measurement up to 100C, standby up to 115C

Printer Compatibility:

  • Firmware: Klipper
  • Connection: USB to Single Board Computer
  • Bed: Conductive surface or substrate, 400um or thicker. Bare steel, WHAM BAM, PEI coated or laminated steel, etc. Use with beds employing large or oversized fixed magnets is not recommended.

Includes:

  • 1x Custom USB cable (6ft free or 10.5ft for an additional fee)
  • 1x Beacon board (main PCB, sensing PCB, headers, cable connector)

Variations – this is important for mounting Beacon to your tool head appropriately:

  • Normal: main PCB and sensing PCB are assembled flat
  • Low Profile: main PCB and sensing PCB are assembled flat (as well as the cable connector)

Warranty:

  • 60-day standard warranty
  • Using any BTT Manta board with the Beacon voids the warranty, since the Manta operates outside the USB voltage rating
