3 Configuration of the display
3.1 Connecting the display
With displays of the type ...-01 with S0, RS232 or RS485 interface the configuration is done
via the serial interface (RS232) of the display.
For configuration via RS232 you need to have ready the following items:

A coss-type cable for the RS232 interface between the PC and the display.

If your PC does not have such an interface, you need an USB on RS232 converter.
Siebert offers such a converter, together with the matching ready-made cable,
as accessories.
With displays of the type ...-05 with Ethernet interface the configuration is done via the
Ethernet. Please have ready the following items:

A cross-type Ethernet cable if you connect the PC for configuration directly with the display.

A patch cable, if you connect the PC for configuration over a switch or router
with the display.
For configuration via Bluetooth, you need a Bluetooth-enabled PC. Falls If your PC does not
have a Bluetooth interface, you need an USB-to-Bluetooth converter. Siebert offers such a
converter.(see Chapter 4 )
