Content, depending on the version of the device, can be transmitted by the following interfaces:
– Ethernet (two-way communication) – standard from Metrix
– RS485 (two-way communication) – optional
– RS422 – 232 (with optical isolation) – optional
– CL 20mA digital current loop (with optical isolation) – optional
Displays communicate with the host system using one of the two protocols:
– MODBUS RTU (RS485 interface only)
– Uncomplicated R004 protocol developed by RGB Technology (included in the price of the device at purchase)
Interfaces with two-way communication enable acknowledgment of the receipt of the data by the display.
The specific capabilities of the device are as follows:
- Displaying flowing or stationary messages (forced flowing text, forced stationary text, switching on the flow of the text automatically when the messages do not fit on the display).
- Available length of messages is from 1 to 100 characters.
- 20 different speeds of the text flow.
- Two font-faces of standard characters (normal and bold).
- Five font-faces of digits with a fixed width dedicated to display numbers, for example finished items, daily schedule, etc.. (two normal font-faces and three bold font-faces).
- Displaying current temperature (extra option).
- Two modes of brightness adjustment: manual (10 different brightness levels) or automatic (4 different profiles of the brightness sensor displaying the 10 brightness levels according to ambient lighting).
The UPWT-1 is supplied with a steel mounting bracket for wall or cabinet mounting.
Mounting brackets are pre-drilled at 316mm centres with 6x10mm oval holes for fixing with pan-head screws or bolts (not supplied).
Captive cross-head screws at each end of the bracket then slot into the body of the UPWT-1 display before tightening to secure.
