Scenario: Customer needs to wire a RST Thermistor String to RST DT2055B Data Logger.

Solution: Follow the steps in the guide below to do the job. 

This document is intended to be a supplement to the DT Logger Host software manual as it assumes users have a basic understanding of setting up DT series data loggers with DT Logger Host software.  please refer to the DT Logger Host Instruction Manual, Document Number ELM0080M, available for download at RST website:

The DT2055B Data Logger has 10 ports on the circuit board so a maximum of 10 thermistor connections can be made. Each port can be used to connect the two sensors, one in the 1A/1B terminal connections,  and one in the 2A/2B terminal connections.

Once the thermistors are connected in order on the circuit board, the sensors can be setup on the Sensor tab in DT Logger Host. The easiest way to set it up is to delete all but first two tabs using the ‘Del Sel’ button. Make sure that the proper sensor type is selected (3K Ohm is the default standard, but that can be designated by the customer before purchase). Change the names of the tabs to reference the prefered nomenclature for the thermistor string. The subsequent thermistors can be added by clicking ‘New Copy’ and then change the tab name. Make sure to click ‘Upload to Logger’ to save the settings to the data logger memory. 

Once the sensor tab is set, set the information in the Logging tab and choose ‘Apply Settings’ to start the data logger’. Refer to the DT Logger Host software manual for preferred Logger Options. 

To watch real-time readings, click on the Monitor tab. 

*Note: Thermistors were not connected to this data logger when this document was written, so there are no values displayed in the screenshot below.

Choosing the Status tab will allow the operator to see the status of the data logger and to download the data.
