  1. The LED Light Ring mounts onto the two back threaded holes on the underside of the Router-Clamp. If you have the Mafell, you will need to mount it over the top of the Dust-Shoe-Adaptor. Use two spare M5-Button-Head-Bolt-8mm bolts to secure it to the back two threaded holes.

    • Use two spare M5-Button-Head-Bolt-8mm bolts to secure it to the back two threaded holes.

    • You will need to forgo the two front mounting bolts.

    • We sell Silicone Wire to connect it. Make sure you buy enough to go through the Drag-Chain-X.

    • Wire the LED Light Ring into the Extruder 1 Heater outputs on the controller.

    • There is a slot in the Controller-Case-Body directly opposite for the wires.

  2. Under File Management > System click on 'config-user-settings.g'. Then add the following lines

    • M42 P0 S1 ; Enable the LED Light Ring

    • This will turn the LED Light Ring on when the machine is turned on.

    • Press the software emergency stop in the top right corner to restart the controller.

    • Use M42 P0 S0 to turn the LED Light Ring off.

    • The S value can be between 0 - 1. It is a sliding scale between off and full brightness.

Instead of to use the E1 terminal you can use one fan output so you can turn on/off and dim the led light

Hi Mirco, the guide above has been fixed to say H1 Terminal, which you can also turn on/off and dim the led light. We use H1 as it is a screw terminal so doesn’t require a crimped wire. Ryan

Hi Ryan

i have followed the guide to install the light ring

how do I switch it on and off

Hi, Step 2 above would turn on the light ring. Ryan

Hi Pete.

M42 P2 S1 turns ON the led

M42 P2 S0 turns OFF the led

M42 P2 S0.5 dims the led at 50%

M42 P2 S0.7 dims the led at 70%

Hi Ryan yes I copied this text and pasted it to the customconfig.g

Pete Beetschen - Reply

Can M42 P2 S1 be used either at the start of the Gcode itself or in the user interface as a pre-script in order to turn on the light when it’s needed? The other bit I don’t fully understand is how it knows which output to switch i.e. H1 or H2. Is it only because it is preceded by a M307 switching off the H2? I’m trying to use both H1 and H2 to switch on the led and trip a SSR controlling the DeWalt. Do I just omit the M307 command in my case?

Hi Peter, yes you can remove it from customconfig.g and put it at the start of your file, or anywhere else you want it come on. The M307 is just to insure nothing else is enabled on that port. For H2 it would be: M307 H3 A-1 C-1 D-1, M42 P3 S1.

Hi Ryan.

I’m sorry but i think there is a little of confusion in this guide.

You are using the ‘H1 Terminal’ term to refer where to connect the led ring.

But on the board the printed label is ‘E1 Heat’.

So probably it is better if you substitute ‘H1 Terminal’ term with ‘E1 Terminal’ term.

Also it is a useful info if you specify that this port manages the Heater 2 on the Duet2 board (Heater 0 = Bed; Heater 1 = E0; Heater 2 = E1 )
