Bltouch problems with duex 5

  • I used to run my printer without an expansion board, and had the bltouch working properly. I have recently installed the duex 5 expansion board and connect the bltouch to the corresponding pwm port. Now when I run the same commands as before, I do not get any reaction from the probe. It is possible that I have it plugged into the wrong pwm port. I also wouldn't be surprised if there was an error in my configuration. FYI I have no heaters plugged into the duex.
    Thanks for any help,
    Here is my config.g in case it is needed: {

  • I think this section of the BLTouch setup would be relavent to you.

    It is required to invert the signal “I1” when using the expansion header pins and not the Duex to connect the BLTouch.

    So now that you are using a Duex5 you no longer need to invert. At least that's what I gather.
