Revision to Connecting an LCD control panel

Jason Znack

== Connecting a PanelDue ==
+There are two cable options for connecting the PanelDue, both options are included with the PanelDue kit. Option 1 is the included 10-wire ribbon cable. Option 2 is the included 4-wire cable with Molex KK connector ends.
+
=== PanelDue version 3.0, and Duet 2 (WiFi/Ethernet) revision 1.01 or later ===
==== Option 1: Ribbon cable ====
+
+In order to use the SD card slot on the PanelDue, you must use the ribbon cable option. If you do not wish to use the SD card slot, it's recommended to use the 4-wire cable option described in option2.
Connect a 10-way ribbon cable between socket X5 on the PanelDue and socket CONN_SD on the Duet 2. The connector is a standard 10 pin 2 row 2.54mm pitch box connector that accepts IDC connectors for 1.27mm ribbon cable.

-The length of the 4-way cable is not critical, however the resistance per conductor should not exceed 0.1 ohm. The SD card socket on the TFT panel will not be functional. The cables supplied by Escher3D and Duet3D are about 800mm long.
+The length of the 4-way cable is not critical, however the resistance per conductor should not exceed 0.1 ohm. The SD card socket on the TFT panel will not be functional. The cables supplied by Escher3D and Duet3D are about 800mm long. There have been reports of cables up to 1500mm long being successfully used. Take care to route the cable away from motor and endstop cables. Twisting the cables may help prevent cross talk interference.
