Summary

UPDATE 3/17/2017 - I no longer own an Anet A8, I printed the parts and upgraded it, I tested it and sold it, it was only built to be sold. Therefore I cannot really provide much info on it. Except that it worked well!

Remixed to accommodate the following IEC320 C14 3-Pin Socket with Rocker Switch.

The details are a little sloppy. I opened the STL in sketchup and a lot of the faces are offset by a few tenths of a millimeter, which may not seem like a lot but for a slicer that shows up as an extra path that the 3D printer has to travel along. Might want to touch up the 3D model.

How much fuse amps you use?

just printed and it looks great

To all those wondering how to fasten this properly:

  1. Mark a hole on the power supply case using the printed cover.
  2. Remove the case, and drill the hole with a bit the same size as an M3 screw.
  3. Use epoxy (I used JB weld) and a M3 nut, to make a "captive nut" on the inside of the case.
  4. Reassemble the case.
  5. Tighten down the cover with a small M3 screw.

Should look similar to mine.

I found there is only 1 screw hole in the power supply, so the side towards the front of the machine isn't attached. That's the only problem I found with this! I need to figure out how to attach this better, long term.

posted about this above

I received my Anet A8 about 3 weeks ago - still in the box. The included power supply is labeled S-240-12 -- though I'm not sure if that's a model number or the in/out voltages - may be both.

On the power supply shipped with my A8, there is no screw hole (tapped or otherwise) on the left side - the side of the P/S with the 110-220 voltage switch. Maybe I'll use a spot of glue or similar...

Do you have a webpage or resource with a wiring diagram? I have everything I just need to know how to wire it up.

Thanks!

Carlos, others,
Here's a picture of the wiring on the back of the switch module (assumes your module has a neon bulb to light the switch):
(Ignore that piece of black heat-shrink tubing on the white neutral wire)
Also, this shows US wire colors. Other countries will differ but, overall, the wiring is the same. Hot, Neutral, Ground.

I no longer do. I remembered that I googled it and found what I needed to wire it. I only upgraded and built the printer. Then sold it so I haven't looked at that in a very long time.

Thanks for the model, print is ready, just need to buy a switch now.
Do you know if a 10A Max switch will be enough ?
Much cheaper(6$ instead of 29$ with shippings...): https://www.amazon.com/Inlet-Power-Socket-Switch-IEC320/dp/B00511QVVK

Thanks bexwhitt & IsmaelIPR1, I finally found a cheaper one on ebay and bought it to avoid any issue:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/1Pcs-15A-250V-IEC320-C14-3-Pin-Fused-Power-Socket-Connector-Rocker-Switch-/181749779642

It depends on your input voltage, in Europe it will be less than 2 Amps in America less than 4 Amps so yes, 10A is more than adequate.

I'm not sure a out the 10A and I wouldn't want to give you incorrect information. I would try to get higher than 10A nuts that's my own personal opinion.

You are talking input voltages so the amperage is nowhere near 10A

Thanks for the remix, Ismael! Just what I was looking for. Switch looks identical to what I ordered.earlier this week, will check size when it arrives. Will be a very welcome addition.

was this for the s240-12 PSU?

At this point I can't say. I built and upgraded the printer and sold it. Didn't even notice.

Hi pal. I already printed it. Very nice one. Can you advise how much ampere you recommend for fuse? Thanks.

My socket came with a fuse. All depends in your socket, 10A or 15A
