GENERAL CONNECTIONS

 

POWER

The SMT is powered from a "switched" +12V (+8 to +16V) battery. It takes, depending on the operating mode, 0.02 - 0.1 Amps.

 

Ground, Chassis, -12V : Black : Pin 1
+Battery, +12V : Red : Pin 1

 

 

RS232 CONNECTIONS

 

Once the SMT has power, the RS232 port to the computer (PC) or laptop is working. A three-pin connector provides :


Ground, Chassis, -12V : Pin 1
SMT6 RX (input) : Pin 2
SMT6 TX (output) : Pin 3


The protocol to the unit is propriety, and the unit will only respond to the SMT DOS or  the Windows program.

 

A connection cable, SMT to D9 PC, is available from the manufacturer.

 

A good communications link up is indicated by the display of some numbers in the left side of the screen.

 

The port number can be set.
