Radio Drive Serial Interface (RDSI)
  • Flex M in RDSI

Magnetek’s Radio Drive Serial Interface (RDSI) enables two-way communication between a radio transmitter and variable frequency drive, allowing RDSI to command the drive and the operator to monitor performance parameters right on the transmitter’s display unit. RDSI makes monitoring drive status easy by putting the information at your fingertips. Facilitating communication using RDSI improves safety and functionality while reducing downtime, installation and maintenance costs.

Flexible & Convenient System

RDSI communicates between the receiver and the drive using a RS-485 serial interface. Using a Flex M receiver you can control up to two drives per serial communication card. Just add another module to the receiver to add additional drive pairs.

RDSI’s modular design enables plug-and-play compatibility with the Flex M receiver. Use the same receiver component for every size of application—no switching necessary.

RDSI automatically detects drive types; allowing you to communicate with all of your drives using only 4 wires; and eliminates the need for relay cards, excessive wiring and labor costs.

RDSI Display
RDSI displays feedback parameters directly from the drive, allowing you to access diagnostic and troubleshooting information on the ground.
