3. Operation
3.1. General
The KRT2-RC and the KRT2-transceiver will be synchronized by a serial
RS232-interface after any change at either side of the two devices.
Approx. every 30 seconds the connection is checked an will be confirmed
by showing „r“ in the upper right corner of the display.
With exception of the microfone steeing menu and the transmisson monitor
all functions of the transceiver are accessible.
3.2. Switching ON/OFF
ON / OFF switching is by the self-locking push switch.
After power up the following display will be displayed:
Device name
KRT2-Remote
SoftwareVersion z.B. V2.0
(example)
The order of switching on(RC oder KRT-2) does not matter.
Provided there is a cable connection next to the active frequency the "r"
must appear after at least 1 minute on both devices on the top right

After the first connection confirmation on the part of KRT2 all settings are
transferred from the KRT2 to KRT2-RC.
4. Monitoring of errors
In case of possible transmission errors corresponding messages are
displayed in the error window (third row right)

The error message will disappear once a correct command or a new
frequency is entered or after 5 seconds.
The operation of the KRT2 is not disturbed by the malfunction of the
remote control
The connection between the remote control and the KRT2 is checked
once per minute and of the contact is confirmed with a "r" in the upper right

• Cable length must be such that connectors are accessible for
repair.
• The wiring to the transceiver must be installed such that water
droplets formed by condensation will not run into the connector.
• Remove the turning knob in order to install the transceiver:
o Remove the turning knob cap with an appropriate tool.
o Loosen the screw and remove the turning knob.
o Install cap correctly oriented!
