PanelDuet connecting

  • My PanelDuet always reads connecting and I am unable to control anything with it, despite the fact that the board is connected to wifi and can be used with the web interface.

    Most likely the cable is faulty, or you have the baud rate mis-matched between the PanelDue and the Duet. Both default to 57600 but both can be changed. So:

    • Check the baud rates are both 57600 (Setup page on PanelDue, and M575 command in config.g)
    • Check that the wire colours are in the same order (but reversed) at the 4-pin connectors at either end of the cable
    • Connect a PC running Pronterface or YAT via USB and send M111 S1 P3. This will echo all GCode commands received. If you see lines starting with "aux:" then the wire from the PanelDue Dout pin to the Duet is OK, and the fault probably lies in the wire to Din. Otherwise the Dout wire is faulty.

  • Thanks for your help. You were quite right, it was dissimilar baud rates.
