Upgraded Silent Board with TMC2208 Driver For Creality Ender 5 PLUS/CR-X 3D Printer
This option is the separate upgraded for Ender 5 PLUS, just plug it in and you could start printing.
Notice: This new upgraded silent mainboard does not currently come pre-installed on Ender 5 PLUS.
-Super Quiet and Noise Reduction. Use TMC2208 Stepper Motor Drivers, which the key component to eliminate the printer's motor when printing.
-Bootloader pre-installed. The firmware can be modified by ARDUINO or Cura with the USB cable.
-Concern for safety. Thermal runaway protection is enabled, if the temperature rises out of control, the printer will stop heating and halt automatically.
- Stepper Motor Driver based on TMC2208
- Voltage: Works on 12V and 24V
- Can Work For CR-10S, CR-10S5.<You need to flash the firmware then you could use it> Firmware Download
Creality V2.2 PCB:
Different from Regular V2.2 Board, in the position of stepper motor driver chip, the resistance value is different (can be directly observed on the motherboard).
Conventional: R100 mute: R150
It's an easy upgrade to the 2.2 Silent. The printer is quiet now with the sound only coming from the power supply fans (which are still too loud). However, you don't get the annoying sounds from the motor drivers. It's an upgrade but in reality for 2020, it should be standard on the 5 Plus because all other printers ship with quiet drivers. If this was 2012, that's a different story and it would have been acceptable.
To do the swap over, takes about 45 minutes. The main issue is that Creality hot glues the connectors and it takes time to remove the hot glue. Additional heat sinks would also be nice to keep the new board running cooler.
Just upgraded to this board on my E5Plus, and it went from a fairly loud machine to silent.
I took the dang thing back apart as I didn't think the motors were working when I powered it up the first time, but they are just that quiet. Its eerie after being used to the whine of the other motors. I can't hear them over the fan now.
I was looking for an easy to install board that would make things quieter. This fit the bill.
