Dual Stepper Driver Expansion Module on a Duet Wifi/Ethernet



  • Can i use a Duet Maistro Expansion module to use the two extra steppers which are available with the CONN_LCD pin connector.

    I upgraded my meastro to a duet wifi so i already have the expansion module.
    I noticed the expansion module mention a uart pin in the connection. and the Duet Wifi a direction pin.

    so is that the same or can i do something with it so i can use that module.

    Johan



  • the duet requires all smart drivers to be of the same type, so no, not without modifications. (i.e. maestro uses uart, wifi uses spi to talk to the drivers, you'd have to add uart support to firmware, or modify the hardware to make the drivers "dumb" if at all possible)
