Duet3D Duet 3 3HC Expansion Board

Everything that makes the Duet 3 a great controller board is present in this expansion board - each stepper driver is capable of up to 4.45 Amps RMS with up to 6.3A peak power. 256 microstepping, StallGuard 2 and StealthChop 2. Along with extra stepper drivers, 9 additional PWM outputs and 6 IO ports allow for additional sensors, fans, or other components. This board allows you to add three more Trinamic 2160 stepper drivers to your Duet 3 mainboard for a total of 9. This expansion board allows for more stepper motors without a loss of processing power as the expansion board has a standalone 32 bit ARM processor. This board communicates with the mainboard via the CAN bus port on the Duet 3 6HC and has an additional CAN port for connecting even more expansion boards.
