This is an expansion module specifically designed to connect to the two external stepper headers on the Duet 2 Maestro. It has two TMC2224 drivers on board, bringing the total drivers on the Maestro to 7.
The Duet 2 Maestro has two external stepper driver ports and this module is design to connect to them and provides:
The 2 sets of 8 pins mate with the matching headers on the Duet 2 Maestro:
Optionally a plastic stand off can be used to support the module through the matching hole in the Duet 2 Maestro.
One or two motors can be connected to the expansion module. They are numbered Drive 5 (E2) and Drive 6 (E3) within RepRapFirmware.
A PCB layout error (this board was not designed by Duet3D) has been discovered that causes Drive 5 (E2) to function poorly at high speeds. See this thread on the forum for how to fix this.
