PT100's are high temperature, high accuracy temperature sensors that make a great upgrade to your E3D or similar hot end.
This kit provides all that you need to convert you E3D hot end over to PT100 temperature measurement. The PT100 provides accuracy up to 400C. These sensors are also very easy to handle, being of a metal cartridge construction that is secured with a set screw, no more fiberglass sleeving or clamping washer.
If you want experiment with printing the crazy high temperature materials, get more accurate temperature readings, and have a much more robust and easy to assemble temperature sensor then a PT100 is an ideal option.
This is a kit that provides everything you need to get up and running with a PT100 sensor on most machines. Requires a controller board that is running Marlin or Repetier with a spare analog input pin.
This kit contains a PT100 sensor, a heater block that is compatible with that sensor, an electrical amplifier board to connect the PT100 to your printer controller board, and the required screws for holding everything together. This kit is compatible with all E3D HotEnds except for Cyclops.
This upgrade is also compatible with the Hexagon hot end.

No idea what the previous 3 star review is about.... If you are going to buy a PT-100 (or anything for that matter) you should probably research it more before purchasing. A 3 star review because you failed to research if this fits your application is ludicrous. It is the SAME EXACT size as the original E3dV6 thermistor cartridge that comes stock unless you have a OLD E3D that is a different size. Research before you buy.... Its size is 3m by 15m. This sensor works great! I have been using a pt-100 setup with the amp for about 2 years without a issue. The sensors are a little brittle, but so is the stock thermister. After modifiying the firmware and installing the amp, it was off to the races! Thanks!
Was misled and bought more than what I needed :(
I already had the latest E3Dv6 but I wanted to upgrade to a PT-100 thermistor. I read on the site that the PT-100 thermistor is a different size than the original v6 heater block so I unnecessarily spent $50 for the full upgrade kit instead of spending $8 on just the PT-100 thermistor, which WOULD have fit into my v6 heater block. ...Maybe update the listing with a better description that's not two years out of date!?
