Upgrade from OX electronics board to Duet 2

Which colour attaches to which pin on the motor headers? The Duet 2 is marked with 1B,L1, L2, 2B for Z-axis; 1B, 1A, 2A, 2B for each of the others. The headers are fitted in the Workbee kit, therefore no need to know, but they were not for the OX.

Update (10/25/2021)

A follow up to this question.

As I am replacing this board onto an OX machine the Y axis stepper motors work in opposite directions, whereas they work in the same direction on a Workbee as it has lead screws. Which Y axis motor needs to be wired back to front? And what is the order of coloured wires for the motor wired back to front?

Is this a good question?

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your question. On the Duet they should be in the colour order, Red, Green, Yellow, Blue.

With the red being at the bottom if looking at the Duet in this orientation -
