EZNeo – EZBoard V2.X Board Setup

What you will need #

  1. The EZNeo Strip

Plug it in! #

The EZBoard V2 board has a dedicated NeoPixel header. This pin is pre-setup in our firmware and Marlin 2.0.

Just simply plug in the EZNeo cable to the NeoPixel header on the board as shown below and the other end of the cable into the EZNeo strip.

Firmware Setup #

Unified 2 Firmware #

If you are using our Unified 2 firmware, there are preset settings in the Configuration.h file to support the EZNeo strip. All you need to do is uncomment the line for the EZNeo strip you are using. No pin number is needed to be specified for this board as it has a dedicated header.

Vanilla Marlin Setup #

If you are using a standard build of Marlin (aka “Vanilla” Marlin), follow the directions below to set the correct options to use the strips with your Marlin build. These directions are based on Marlin 2.0.9.1. Older/newer versions of Marlin may have different values than shown below.

Configuration.h Settings #

In Configuration.h make the following changes:

  • Uncomment the NEOPIXEL_LED line
  • Set the NEOPIXEL_TYPE to NEO_GRB
  • Set the NEOPIXEL_PIN line to whatever IO pin you are using to control the strip.
  • Change the NEOPIXEL_PIXELS value to 15
  • Uncomment the NEOPIXEL_STARTUP_TEST line

Configuration_adv.h Settings #

In Configuration_adv.h make the following changes:

  • Uncomment the LED_CONTROL_MENU line

These settings will enable all the Marlin RGB LED control options. You can change the LED colors from your printer LCD menu or through Gcode commands (M150)
