Does it need a relay or can you push that thru most typical boards such as printrboard and RAMPS?

The 12V version uses 9.5A (115 watts), and we have not had any problems driving it with a RUMBA or RAMPS directly. The 24V uses 6A (144 watts), and we have not had any problems driving it directly either.

Two spare a click, here is one of the most impressive things with the HB 8.8

The HB 8.8 is capable of heat-up times around 3 minutes to reach 100° C from room temperature. Please see the product images for temperature curve and thermal imaging data

I am anxious to toss this on an SD3 I got from another user. If someone has not beat me to it, I will have a walkthrough in due time, though it is fairly straighforward.

Very interested in this, as I'm tired of constantly waiting for my stock SD4 bed to heat up.  At the moment, I'm waiting for it to hit 105C...which takes a while, and is about the max I can get out of it.

hmmm... looks very interesting... smile might have to grab one of these and try it out.

currently takes 10-15 mins to hit 100C with the stock heat pad on my thicker aluminum plate/mirror combo on #1 - and then I have issues with the edges not getting warm enough to hold larger parts...even after it has been on for a while...

SD4 #1 - Lawsy carriages, E3D v6, Rumba controller board, mirror bed plate, X motor fan & upgraded PSU & Mica bed heater
SD4 #2 - basically the same as SD4 #1 now... wink
