The PLX DM-5 WaterTemp is a standard size 2 1/16" (52mm) LED automotive display designed to display the values measured from the SM-FluidTemp. Measuring only 0.7" (18mm) thick, it can virtually be mounted anywhere. The DM-5 is designed to fit into most aftermarket 2 1/16" (52mm) cups, and mounts for seamless integration into your vehicle. This is an ideal accessory for your SM-FluidTemp module. Up to 32 can be daisy chained together in the iMFD system.
3.3V from SM - Connects to the SM-FluidTemp module's 3.3V output. This is where the DM-5 gets it's power.
Serial RX - Digital Serial input from iMFD chain
Serial TX Digital Serial output to remaining iMFD chain
*No ground connection is necessary. Ground obtained from Serial RX, TX
There are two recommended uses for the DM-5. The simple setup connects to just one SM module. This is great for stand alone gauges. The full setup is great for monitoring several SM modules simultaneously. Looking at the above diagram. the DM-5 WaterTemp labeled (1) automatically displays the information from SM-FluidTemp labeled (4). The DM-5 WaterTemp labeled (2) automatically displays the information from SM-FluidTemp labeled (5). The DM-5 WaterTemp labeled (3) automatically displays the information from SM-FluidTemp labeled (6) and so on.... The DM-5 automatically "knows" where to look for the information with respect to where it is connected in the iMFD chain.
