• The DRST-CM detachable display adds Modbus RTU RS-485 serial communications to all current and future DRST Series units.
• The unit converts a wide array of sensors and analog device signals measured by the system like uni- and bipolar mA and voltage signals, potentiometer, Lin. R, RTD and TC, to a Modbus communication line signal.
• All individual unit operating parameters can easily and quickly be configured by using the Modbus communication or by using the front display menu.
• The easily readable DRST-CM display can be used to read the process signal, simulate the output signal, indicate sensor errors and internal device errors.

Technical Characteristics
• DRST-CM has full DRSL-Display functionality for unit programming, process signal monitoring and diagnostics handling.
• Modbus RTU protocol is supported using a serial RS-485 communication wiring.
• Multi-drop half-duplex connection via shielded RJ45 connector.
• High safe galvanic isolation of 2.5 kVAC between the serial wiring and the connected system DRST units.
• Modbus parameters such as address, baud rate, stop bit(s), and parity bit are configured from the DRST-CM display, which also stores parameters.

• Mounting in Zone 2 / Div 2. This DRST-CM can be moved from one device to another. The individual system DRST unit configuration of the first device can be saved and downloaded to subsequent devices.
• Programmed parameters can be protected by a user defined password.
• When mounted on devices that are installed upside down, a menu item allows the display on DRST-CM to be rotated 180o and the up/down buttons to switch function.
