Duet 2 wifi to Maestro

  • Hey all,

    I'm replacing a wifi with a maestro, are there any gotchas I need to look out for as far as the configurations go, or is it pretty much copy one to the other?


  • the resistor for the thermistors is 2200 instead of 4700.
    the max current for the steppers is lower.

  • also the drivers connectors are soldered rotated by 180° so you will have to invert the motors rotation in config.g I think

  • ok thanks guys, I think i'll take it slow and make sure everything is working then.

    Moving the Duet wifi to a different printer and putting the maestro in the old!

  • Great call on the thermistors. I honestly didn't know what you were talking about until my room temperature was coming up at 5C.

    The connectors are rotated, I just had to rotate the connectors and everything worked.

    Thanks again guys!

    One other thing to note is that the Maestro can't handle as much stepper motor current as the WiFi without cooling. As a rough guide, above 1A stepper motor current you are likely to need fan cooling.

  • Cool, thank you. I'm under that (and also have a fan on the steppers.
