Revision to Connecting an LCD control panel

Manuel Coenen

* PanelDue generally expects a 1:1 relationship between tools and heaters. This means:
-** If there are more tools than heaters (ie some tools share a heater), the heater will be shown under the first-defined tool; subsequent tools will show '0' for Current temp and for Active and Standby. However, setting temperatures on these tools will still work.
+** If there are more tools than heaters (ie some tools share a heater), the heater will be shown under the first-defined tool; subsequent tools will show '0' for Current temp and for Active and Standby. However, setting temperatures on these tools will still work. (Fixed in PanelDueFirmware 3.2.5)
** If there are more heaters than tools (ie some tools have multiple heaters) only the first heater defined per tool will show. However, setting temperatures for the tool will still work, and apply to all heaters connected to a particular tool. If you define a tool for each heater, even if you don't use it, you will be able to see each heater temperature.
* Due to constraints on display resolution, PanelDue can only display 7 tool/bed/chamber heaters in total on 5" and 7" screens, and 5 heaters on 4.3" screens.
-* PanelDue does not recognise additionally-defined bed heaters, and does not display them.
+* PanelDue does not recognise additionally-defined bed heaters, and does not display them. (Fixed in PanelDueFirmware 3.2.7 as far as space allows displaying these heaters - see above)
These limitations will be addressed in forthcoming firmware versions.
