Maxi Power pinout

Post by mihhailov » Mon Jan 13, 2020 6:32 pm

Hey,
I have got a Controllino Maxi Power edition. I am bit stuck with controlling Nextion display with it, so I am ćhecking every detail now. One thing I am missing is a pinout table for Power edition (Controllino website says it is "coming soon").
Just wondering + Is there any way to get it ? I am particularly interested in Serial2 Rx,Tx which should be pins 17(RX), 16(TX). I am using Maxi Automation pinout (X2 physical pins 12 and 13), but as stated above this does not work.

Hello,
the UART connection shall be the same like on the MAXI Automation.
Serial 2 is the best solution. We are still working on the new version of documentation, but pinheader is compatible with Standard MAXI.

Thank You for the response.
I managed to get it working - for anyone who might be interested - the solution was to connect GND of Nexus to GND of controller. Logical but not very obvious for the beginner.
