Some questions before I replace my power supply
My power supply recently died on my MK3. After doing some searching and reading, I plan on replacing it with a Meanwell LRS 350.
I am always a little leery when dealing with electronics so I wanted to ask some questions before I jump in. I have put together a couple computers and bought the MK3 kit so I have some experience.
1. This power supply will work, correct?
2. Can I reuse the power switch and plug from the old unit or should I get new ones?
3. Is there anything I should pay particular attention to when wiring things up? I don't want to fry my printer or burn my house down.
Any advice or wisdom is greatly appreciated.
I purchased the same one and paid a few bucks more. It will work.
I replaced my power supply cables at the same time and added quick connectors:
I also replaced the case:
This allows me to put my power supply on my table outside my enclosure.
Meanwell should be fine. I have the same one sitting, waiting for an excuse to add it in.
Thingiverse has some PSU ends you can print that add a socket and switch. You would need to buy the appropriate parts.
MK3 advantage - you can move the power fail board to the new PSU. Can't do that with the MK3S PSU.
