Detachable Casing with RJ45 Connectors



  • I want to share may latest project, a detachable Panel Due caring using RJ45 connectors.

    I am building a Duet controlled MPCNC and to be able to move my panel due between my printer and the upcoming CNC. I used RJ45 connectors from a server room patch panel.

    I have tested with different LAN cable lengths, 3 m works but not 10 m 🙂 , it communicated but the touch control did not respond. 3 m will be more than enough.

    The hole is for an emergency stop button to be used with the CNC. This is a prototype printed printed with a 0.6 nozzle and 0.4 layer height so it is not the prettiest print.

    Happy with the solution so far.

  • @fotomas nice, which version of the PanelDue is this?



  • It is probably the first version with a 5" screen.
