* Powerful 32 Bit Processor: [http://www.atmel.com/devices/ATSAM4E8E.aspx|Atmel SAM4E8E]: 120MHz ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller with floating point unit, 512Kb flash memory, 128Kb RAM and many peripherals.
* Setup your printer and update the firmware through the web interface. No need to compile your own firmware.
* Also connect via USB or serial if desired.
* The Duet 2 Wifi uses WPA-2 encryption for network security. The DuetWifiDuet 2 Wifi does not need to be connected to the internet - keep it on a local network for added security.

* Most printers supported: All common 3D printer geometries are supported, with easily modified configuration templates for popular designs. Along with 3D printers a wide variety of CNC machines and lasercutters can be controlled.
* Expandable up to 7 extruders: Support for a further 5 stepper drivers and heaters on the expansion header. The [[Duex2 and Duex5 Features|Duex2 and Duex5 expansion boards]] are available.
* Beta support for the Duet3d Filament Monitor both [[Duet3dFilamentMonitor RotatingMagnetVersion|magnetic]] and [[Duet3dFilamentMonitor LaserVersion|laser]] versions.

== Wiring and pinout ==
* Support for up to five additional heaters and stepper drivers on the expansion bus, instead of four, plus another two additional external stepper drivers to give a total of 12 stepper drivers maximum
* Other design changes to increase board resilience, improve safety, and reduce EMI
 
=== Feature Comparison ===
