Identity Codes
The ST-1700C touchpanel uses two distinct types of identity codes: Cresnet identity
(NET ID), and RF ID. These codes are assigned to the touchpanel from the Interface
Submenu when the unit is configured. Refer to “Setup Menu” on page 7. For the
touchpanel to be identified within the Cresnet system, these assignments must match
assignments made in the SIMPL™ Windows® program.
NET ID
Every equipment and user interface within the Cresnet system requires a unique NET
ID. The NET ID is a two-digit hexadecimal number that can range from 03 to FE. The
NET ID of the unit must match the NET ID specified in the SIMPL Windows program.
The NET ID is used when the touchpanel is wired directly to the control system during
uploading a VisionTools™ Pro-e (VT Pro-e) project or upgrading the touchpanel
firmware.
RF ID
Every ST-1700C touchpanel communicating with a Cresnet control system via a
CNRFGWA requires a unique RF ID to secure RF communications. There are 15
useable codes for multiple touchpanel(s) ranging from 01 to 0F (hexadecimal number).
The RF ID of the unit must match the RF ID specified in the SIMPL Windows
program.
NOTE: Do not set the RF ID to “00”; it is not supported in SIMPL Windows.

Configuring the Touchpanel
MAIN MENU
To configure the unit, it may be necessary to access a series of setup screens prior to
viewing run-time screens that are loaded into the touchpanel for normal operation.
The MAIN MENU for configuring the touchpanel appears when a finger is held to
the touchscreen for about 5 seconds from the powered down state.
Upon entering SETUP MODE, the MAIN MENU, shown to the left, displays four
buttons: Touch Screen Calibration, Exit and Run Program, Setup, and
Diagnostics.
This menu can also be obtained via
digital reserved join number, 17242.
The Exit and Run Program button verifies that all of the setup information has
been saved to EEPROM and displays the main page that has been programmed into
your system. The remaining buttons on the MAIN MENU open other menus, which
are discussed in subsequent paragraphs.
Calibration Menu
CALIBRATION MENU
Calibration of the touchscreen is required if the active touch area of a button does
not coincide with the button's image. Select the Touch Screen Calibration button to
display the CALIBRATION MENU, shown to the left. The CALIBRATION MENU
offers the choice to initiate calibration with the Perform Calibration button or
return to the previous screen with the Return button. Choose an option by touching
the correct button.
If you proceed to calibrate the touchpanel, the screen displays the message "Touch
Upper Left" centered on the panel with a cross hair in the upper left corner. Touch
the cross hair in the corner of the screen to initiate calibration. Another message,
"Touch Upper right", appears with a cross hair in the correct corner. Touch the
corner of the screen. A final message, “Touch Lower Left”, appears with a cross hair
in the correct corner. Touch the corner of the screen to conclude calibration and
return to the MAIN MENU.
NOTE: When touching the screen during calibration, be as accurate as possible. Use
the tip of a capped pen or the eraser end of a pencil.

BATTERY STATUS
To access the BATTERY STATUS screen, shown to the left, press the Battery
Status button on the SETUP MENU.
This screen indicates the amount of charge (or life) remaining in the battery as a
percentage of full capacity, if the battery is installed. An analog bar is provided
below the percentage amount as a quick visual reference to the approximate level of
charge remaining. The EXTERNAL POWER label appears if external power is
applied either through the docking station or via the optional power pack. Note that
battery recharging takes place only through the docking station. Touch the Return
button to display the SETUP MENU.
NOTE: When the touchpanel is in the docking station to recharge the battery, the %
CAPACITY display is not an accurate indicator of battery charge level. The display
will indicate a full charge (100%) before charging is actually complete. The docking
station indicates that charging is complete by illuminating the RDY indicator.
Select Interface
SELECT INTERFACE
CRESNET INTERFACE MENU
The touchpanel communicates with a control system to activate commands or to
display feedback from components within the system. The communication interface
must be correctly specified or communication will not occur. To set communication
parameters, first select the Interface button on the SETUP MENU to display the
SELECT INTERFACE screen, shown to the left. Then, select either the CRESNET
or the RF button to display the CRESNET INTERFACE MENU or the SELECT RF
ID screen, respectively. Use these screens to set the Cresnet network identity (NET
ID) and the RF ID numbers.
CRESNET ID is a two-digit hexadecimal number that can range from 03 to FE, used
only during screen uploads to the touchpanel or upgrading the touchpanel firmware.
NET ID for the ST-1700C is factory set to 03.
The UP and DOWN buttons increase and decrease the CRESNET ID by one digit
(i.e., 03, 04, 05, . . . FE).
Select the Return button to return to the SELECT INTERFACE screen.
SELECT RF ID
RF ID, the radio frequency identity number, is necessary to secure RF
communications such that controls can be activated from the touchpanel. The RF ID
consists of a two-digit hexadecimal number. The touchpanel can be set to one of
fifteen numbers; “10” is shown as an example in the illustration and happens to be
the default.
The UP and DOWN buttons increase and decrease the RF ID most significant digit
by one, respectively (i.e., 10, 20, 30, …, F0).
After the Cresnet ID and RF ID settings have been verified, touch the Return button
to save the settings and display the SELECT INTERFACE screen.

Power Management Timeout Settings
POWER MANAGEMENT TIMEOUT
SETTINGS
The Power Management feature is intended to conserve energy and to extend the
service life of the battery. From the STARTUP screen, press the Power
Management button to display the POWER MANAGEMENT TIMEOUT
SETTINGS Screen. Use the STANDBY and POWER DOWN UP and DOWN
buttons to set the respective timeouts from 0 through 120 minutes, where 0 disables
the timeout. The time settings are in single-minute increments from 0 to ten minutes,
and in 10-minute increments from 10 minutes through 120 minutes.
Use the Standby Now and Power Down Now buttons to immediately enter the
respective mode.
STANDBY timeout turns the display and backlight off when the touchpanel is
inactive for the specified time. When the touchpanel is reactivated, the last screen to
be displayed reappears. The specified time is displayed in minutes. The default
STANDBY timeout is 10 minutes.
POWER DOWN timeout turns off all power when the touchpanel is inactive for the
specified time. When the touchpanel is activated, either the first page of the project
appears or the last screen to be displayed reappears, depending on the setting of the
Power Up On Last Page option on the Startup Preference screen. The specified time is
displayed in minutes. The default POWER DOWN timeout is 30 minutes.
NOTE: Power Down Timeout should be set low to maximize battery life. However,
Power Down Timeout should be set greater than Standby Timeout. Otherwise, the
Standby Timeout is meaningless.
NOTE: When the panel is powered down, it will take about 1.5 seconds to power up
and respond to a button press. There is no such delay from Standby mode
NOTE: If the external AC power pack is attached to the touchpanel and plugged into
an active AC receptacle, or if the touchpanel is resting in the docking station (ST-DSN)
and plugged into an active AC receptacle, the panel does not power down when the
power down timeout is achieved. Recall that the purpose of this timeout is to maximize
battery life. Standby timeout still functions.
Press Return to save the settings and return to the SETUP MENU.

General Use and Safety
WARNING: To avoid shock hazard and possible damage to the unit, do not use
touchpanel in rain or expose it to unnecessary moisture.
Recommended Touchpanel Cleaning
Keep the surface of the touchscreen free of dirt, dust, or other materials that could
degrade optical properties. Long-term contact with abrasive materials can scratch the
surface that may detrimentally affect image quality.
For best cleaning results, use a clean, damp, non-abrasive cloth with any commercially
available non-ammonia glass cleaner. Surrounding plastic enclosure may not provide a
complete watertight seal. Therefore, apply cleaning solution to the cloth rather than the
surface of the touchscreen. Wipe touchscreen clean and avoid ingress of moisture
beneath panels.

You can create a program that allows you to set up the ST-1700C to operate a
Crestron control system using the Crestron programming tools Crestron Application
Builder™ (AppBuilder) and SIMPL Windows. These tools are intended for users
with different levels of programming knowledge. The flexibility of each tool is
proportional to the degree of programming expertise (i.e., the more flexible, the
more a programmer needs to know and account for). Of course, one can initiate
programming using the easiest method (Crestron AppBuilder) and use advanced
techniques that are available from SIMPL Windows to customize the job.
VT Pro-e is a Windows compatible software package for creating Crestron
touchpanel screen designs. Refer to “Programming with VisionTools™ Pro-e” on
page 22 for additional details regarding VT Pro-e.
The following are recommended software version requirements for the PC:
•
SIMPL Windows version 2.02.11 or later. Requires SIMPL+ Cross Compiler
version 1.1.
•
Crestron Database version 15.7.5 or later.
•
Application Builder version 1.1.6 or later. Requires SIMPL Windows.
•
VisionTools Pro-e version 2.4.1.6 or later. Used for graphical touchscreen
design.
Programming with the Crestron AppBuilder
The easiest method of
programming, but does not
offer as much flexibility as
SIMPL Windows.
The Crestron AppBuilder offers automatic programming for such residential and
commercial applications as audio distribution, home theater, video conferencing, and
lighting. The interface of this tool guides you through a few basic steps for
designating rooms and specifying the control system, touchpanels, devices, and
functionality. The Crestron AppBuilder then programs the system, including all
touchpanel projects and control system logic.
The Crestron AppBuilder is fully integrated with Crestron's suite of software
development tools, including SIMPL Windows, VT Pro-e, Crestron Database, User IR
Database, and User Modules Directory. The Crestron AppBuilder accesses these tools
behind the scenes, enabling you to easily create robust systems.
Programming with SIMPL™ Windows
NOTE: The following assumes that the reader has knowledge of SIMPL Windows. If
not, refer to the extensive help information provided with the software.
NOTE: In the following description, the PRO2 control system is used.
SIMPL Windows is Crestron's software for programming Crestron control systems. It
provides a well-designed graphical environment with a number of workspaces (i.e.,
windows) in which a programmer can select, configure, program, test, and monitor a
Crestron control system. SIMPL Windows offers drag and drop functionality in a
familiar Windows® environment.
This section describes a sample SIMPL Windows program that includes a touchpanel.

C2Net-Device Slot in Configuration Manager
To incorporate a wireless RF touchpanel into the system, a gateway device is required.
The C2Net-Device Slot can accept a gateway such as the CNRFGWA. Once a gateway
is configured in a C2Net-Device Slot, the slot allows Cresnet communication between
the touchpanel and the control system.
In Configuration Manager, drag the CNRFGWA gateway from the Wireless Receivers
(RF) folder of the Device Library. The System Views upper pane displays the
CNRFGWA device icon below the PRO2 graphic.
NOTE: An ST-CP control processor is automatically configured with a CNRFGWA
in its STCP-Net Device Slot 3, with a fixed NET ID of 2, when the ST-CP is dragged
into the upper pane of System Views.
Drag the ST-1700C from the Touchpanels (Wireless | Wireless one way) folder of the
Device Library and drop it on the CNRFGWA symbol in System Views. The PRO2
system tree displays the CNRFGWA gateway in Slot 9, with a default NET ID of 24.
The CNRFGWA displays the touchpanel at the touchpanel’s default RF ID location,
“10,” as shown in the following illustration.

NOTE: The hardware and software settings of the RF ID must match. Although the
device setting window in SIMPL Windows allows choices through the range of twodigit Hexadecimal numbers from 01 through FE, the RF ID setting for the hardware is
limited to numbers in increments of the most significant digit (i.e., 00, 10, 20). Since
00 is not a valid selection in SIMPL Windows, the RF ID number is limited to the
fifteen numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, . . .F0.

Control screen variations incorporating two- and three-dimensional graphics and text
are possible and can be created with VT Pro-e, a design and programming Windowsbased software program. A set of pages, which make up a project, can be designed for
each application. Each touchpanel can be organized with the ideal, color-oriented
control environment with custom control graphics: icons, two and three-dimensional
buttons, and floor plans. The project is uploaded to the touchpanel’s flash PROM. The
touchpanel uses the project until another is uploaded from the PC. The PC may be
disconnected from the control processor except when uploading a project.
For additional software information, refer to the help file provided with the software.
The latest version of VT Pro-e can be obtained from the Downloads | Software Updates
section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com).
Virtual Feedback
Programming a one-way RF touchpanel such as the ST-1700C requires consideration
of “feedback." Since the panels are one-way only, and there is no true feedback, you
must create "virtual feedback" so that buttons respond appropriately when pressed and
the user perceives no real difference between a one-way panel and a two-way panel.
The Application Builder takes care of all of this for you, as did its predecessor, the
SmarTouch Pro Editor. However, if you are programming your panels with SIMPL
Windows and VT Pro-e, you must follow the procedure described below to add logic
both to the touchpanel for button feedback and to the control system program to
properly process the signals, and to make sure that the state of the buttons on the panel
and in the control system remain in sync.
Button press feedback produces a change in appearance from the inactive state to the
active state, or vice versa, as defined in the program.
•
Momentary feedback, from inactive to active and back to inactive, has a short
duration, lasting only as long as the button is pressed.
•
Toggle feedback produces a change of state each time the button is pressed.
•
With Interlock feedback, only one button in an assigned interlock group can be
active at a time. Pressing an inactive button changes its state to active, and forces
the other buttons in the group to inactive. (To clear all buttons in the interlock
group requires that an extra button be added whose sole purpose is to force all the
others to the inactive state.)
•
Duration feedback is assigned to a button that is to be activated and remain active
for a specified period of time, and then return to the inactive state.
In the following paragraphs, each feedback type will be discussed in detail as
applicable.
VT Pro-e Procedures
Buttons requiring feedback need to have the feedback type assigned as if it were a
property of the object. Button feedback logic is classified as momentary, toggle,
interlock, or duration. Logic is added to the buttons on the panel (after join numbers
and other properties have been assigned), by right-clicking the button in VT Pro-e and
selecting Feedback, which displays the “Feedback” window.

“Feedback” Window
NOTE: When the Feedback window is open, you can click on any of the buttons on
the page and view their various feedback properties.
Interlock
An interlock consists of a number of assigned buttons grouped together so that button
selection is mutually exclusive within the group. This is an important feature when you
wish to guarantee that button selection can only be made when all the other buttons of
the group are or will be forced inactive. For example, three sources (CD, VCR, tape
deck) are controlled and designed within an interlock. This ensures that if CD is
chosen, all other sources are inactive.
To create the interlock group, right-click on one of the buttons to be in the group, and
select Feedback to display the “Feedback” window. Select Interlock as the feedback
type. The window changes to show any existing interlock group(s), and includes a
Groups button.

Select New to create a new interlock group. Select Edit if you wish to modify an
existing group. In either case, the “Create Interlock” window appears.
“Create Interlock” Window
For new interlock groups, move the cursor over each button to be added and left-click
to select it. (Notice that the cursor assumes the pointing hand shape when it is over the
page.) If a button is inadvertently placed in the “Buttons:” field, highlight the button
and select Delete to remove it from the group. Select OK to confirm and save the
interlock group.
To edit an existing interlock group, select the group in the “Edit Interlock” window and
click Edit to open the “Create Interlock” window. Add or delete buttons as needed.
Duration
A button defined with duration feedback will remain active for a fixed time period as
defined in the Duration field. The purpose of a duration feedback is to simulate a
function in the SIMPL Windows program that must remain active for a certain amount
of time, such as closing drapes or lowering a screen.
Right-click on the desired button, and select Feedback. In the “Feedback” window,
select Duration as the feedback type, and enter the desired duration in seconds.
Sequence Groups
A sequence group consists of a number of assigned buttons that are activated as a
group as a result of a single button press. When the first button is activated, the other
24 • 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel: ST-1700C
Operations Guide – DOC. 6050
Crestron ST-1700C
1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel
buttons are activated either sequentially, when one or more of the buttons is defined as
having duration feedback, or simultaneously if no durations are included in the group.
This is an important feature when one wishes to guarantee that a single selection can
activate a number of functions. For example, one can unify the following functions:
draw shades closed, dim lights, and start projector. This ensures that when this
sequence group is activated, all functions of the collective unit are activated together.
Starting from an open page, select (or create) the button that is to activate the group,
right click and select Feedback. In the “Feedback” window, select Duration as the
feedback type, and enter the desired Duration in seconds. In the Button Action area
Joins field, scroll to the desired button joins and click the Add Step button. As each
one is added, “Simulate Button xx” appears in the Sequence Group list. When all the
desired joins have been added, click Close to accept the entries and close the
“Feedback” window. (Refer to the following figure.)
“Feedback” Window
VT Pro-e always generates the proper virtual feedback logic and appends it to the
compiled VT Pro-e file for upload to the panel. However, you must add similar logic to
the control system via SIMPL Windows.
SIMPL Windows Procedures
Momentary Feedback
Momentary feedback is when the button feedback state is active as long as the button is
pressed and inactive when it is not being pressed. Momentary feedback does not
require anything special in the SIMPL Windows program. You simply connect the
signal from the appropriate touchpanel join number to the logic in the program (to the
feedback of the same digital press).
Interlock Feedback
Interlock feedback is when the feedback of only one button in a group may be active at
any one time. Pressing a button causes its feedback to go high and the feedback of all
other buttons to become inactive, or low, as shown in the figure following this
paragraph. In this example, join numbers 7 – 10 are in an interlock group; join 7 is
pressed, causing join 8, initially high, to go low and join7 to go hi. The one-way
touchpanels transmit only the newly pressed button to the control system. The
programmer must add a SIMPL Windows INTERLOCK symbol and connect all of the
touchpanel output's join numbers in that interlock group as inputs to the INTERLOCK
Operations Guide – DOC. 6050

symbol. All of the outputs are then used to drive the appropriate logic. Note that the
output of the interlock corresponding to the pressed button remains high even after the
button is released, until the next button is pressed.

Toggle Feedback
Toggle feedback is when the feedback of a button alternates between active and
inactive each time the button is pressed. As in the interlock, the toggle feedback
remains high even after the button is released, until the button is pressed again.
Because there is no way to communicate the state of the toggle button between the
panel and the control system by using that single button, Crestron models a toggle on a
one-way panel as a two-button interlock group. The button shown on the panel is the
first button. The second button (invisible, Crestron-created, not user-created) is the
original button's join number + 500, e.g. 1 and 501, 101 and 601, etc. Since there are
only 999 join numbers allowed by Crestron's RF protocol, a toggle button may only
have a join number of 499 or below. Be aware that you must not use the toggle join
numbers + 500 for other purposes. Crestron recommends that you keep toggle buttons
in one numeric range (such as 100-150) and then make sure you don't use anything in
the corresponding +500 range (600-750). When the user first presses and releases the
toggle button, the panel transmits the join number press and release. The next time the
user presses and releases the toggle button, the panel transmits the join number + 500
press and release, and then continues to alternate between them. By this method,
Crestron knows that the user is explicitly turning the toggle on or explicitly turning it
off, so that the state on the control system and the state on the touchpanel will match.
The programmer must place an INTERLOCK symbol in the SIMPL Windows program
and connect the join number and the join number + 500 to it. The feedback
corresponding to the original join number should be used to drive the logic
corresponding to the toggle being turned on, and the feedback corresponding to the join
number offset by 500 is used to drive the logic corresponding to the toggle being
turned off. See the following figure.

Duration Feedback
A button defined with duration feedback will remain active for a fixed period of time
as programmed in the Duration field. Active duration is d0efined by selecting
Duration as the feedback type, and entering a number of seconds in the Duration field.
The programmer should add an MV (one-shot) symbol to the SIMPL Windows
program, with the appropriate time parameter, as shown in the following figure.

Sequence Groups
In addition to button feedback, programmers can specify that a single button perform a
sequence of operations. The sequence can press other buttons and these buttons may
have durations to introduce delays. The virtual feedback generated by VT Pro-e to the
one-way panel will approximate as closely as possible the SIMPL Windows program
of multi button press feedback generated from a single button press sequence, but the
only information that is actually transmitted to the control system is the join number of
the button that specifies the sequence. On the touchpanel, if timing is specified in the
sequence, the button that specifies the sequence will appear active for the whole
sequence; the other buttons in the sequence will go active in the order and for the
duration specified in the sequence; if no timing is specified, the other buttons will go
active simultaneously.
The programmer must duplicate the actual logic, including all button presses, functions
and durations, on the control system. Normally, the programmer uses a STEPPER
symbol in SIMPL Windows, with the input driven by the join number that initiates the
sequence. As shown in the following figure, each output of the STEPPER drives the
logic for the next step in the sequence with the appropriate duration and delay as the
corresponding parameters.

CRESTRON
The touchpanel includes ten “quick” pushbuttons, five on each side of the LCD
screen. These buttons are used to access any frequently used commands. Each button
has a permanently fixed digital join number. The sequence of digital join numbers is
(top to bottom) 1 through 5 on the left side and 6 through 10 on the right side. The
default feedback definition for these joins is “momentary.”
NOTE: A user may not want the LCD screen to come on after a pushbutton is
pressed when the unit is off. The Startup Preference option allows the user to select
whether the panel’s display comes on or stays off after a pushbutton is pressed. For
more information, refer to “Startup Preference” on page 9 for details.
NOTE: Assuming that the touchpanel is powered down, pressing a “quick”
pushbutton once “wakes up” the touchpanel but no command is sent. A second
button press sends the command. However, if the touchpanel is actually in standby
mode, the panel is “awake” and the initial button press sends the command.
NOTE: If you wish to change the feedback definition for one of these buttons,
create another button on a page, assign the digital join, and set the definition as
desired (e.g., toggle, interlock, etc.). Use SIMPL Windows to assign the join
numbers to specific functions (e.g., power, volume). The buttons can be used to
accomplish screen changes (page flips) by assigning the join numbers to the desired
pages using Page Properties in VT Pro-e. Refer also to “Virtual Feedback” on Page
22.
NOTE: In versions of VT Pro-e prior to 2.5, if you wish to use “quick” pushbuttons
1-10, you must make a new page and draw buttons with join numbers 1-10.

Remove the battery, and place the touchpanel face down on a clean work
surface.

Remove the four screws securing the front bezel to the base, and return the
unit to its normal position (use care to prevent the bezel from dropping and
becoming damaged).
3.
Lift the bezel from the touchpanel, and remove the pushbuttons being
replaced. Note that the pushbutton sets fit snugly.

Put the new pushbuttons in place (see following Note), press firmly to ensure
they are seated, and place the bezel back in position.
NOTE: The rear of the pushbuttons are marked TOP 1- TOP 5 and TOP 6 – TOP 10
to ensure correct position and orientation when installed. Do not remove the plastic
frame connecting the buttons together.
