24V Duet with 12V Duex Fans not working



  • So I fixed up my printer with an ew Duet2 WiFi and a Duex5. Fans on the Duet2 work fine. Everything as it should.
    Unfortunately the 12V Fan pins (set by jumper) do not produce any usable Voltage.

    However when attaching the voltmeter to the fan output and activating the relative fan-port I observe that the trickle voltage of a few mV disappears and goes to zero. When deactivating the port again, the trickle charge comes back.

    I have tried it a number of times, and have written a script to make sure I dont muck something up just because of typos of something:

    Is the 12V_EN jumper fitted on the DueX?

    When you send M115, does the response mention the DueX?

    Updated Firmware, still nothing.

    While I was at it, I just replaced the Jumper to its previous (VIN) position: I get a 24V output! So something in there is alive. It just does not work with the jumper set to 12V. Unfortunately I have not tried this with the previous software package.

    So its just the 12V output that is not working.

    Is this a user error (2 jumpers necessary or something else), or is the integrated stepdown not working?



  • So it was a user fault after all!

    I failed to set the 12V_EN which is the jumper to enable the 12V output on the Duex. But to be frank, I did not find that information anywhere reasonable. @dc42 Can you please input that info into the guides? I do not find it there.

    So one has to set the 12V voltage selection jumper (green) AS WELL AS the 12V_EN 12V enabling jumper (yellow) ...
