Sourcing Power from the 5V pin in the Expansion Area



  • Hi,

    I wanted to ask how much current can be continuously & safely sourced from the 5V output pin in the Expansion area of the Duet Wifi (I think it's marked Pin 1).

    Many thanks in advance.

    The regulator can supply 2A total. From that total, the Duet itself takes about 200 to 300mA, and if you have a PanelDue connected that's another 300 to 700mA depending on screen size.

    Thanks for the quick and detailed reply, dc42! Much appreciated!
