FS-8700-67 – RussElectric Model 2000

FieldServer Driver – Serial


RussElectric Model 2000



The Serial Russelectric Model 2000 driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over either RS-232 or RS-485 using RTU protocol.  The Russelectric Model 2000 drivers implement a Model 2000 Client and a Model 2000 Server.  The Client driver can read data from a remote Server and send write data commands.  The Server driver emulates a Model 2000 device and responds to data read and write poll commands.
