Multiple graphics can be displayed on the TPS-4000 without any shift in color depth
or quality. The TPS-4000 can display real-time video from any Crestron balanced
video distribution product or any balanced video, S-video or composite video source.
The TPS-4000’s audio capabilities include stereo audio speakers that offer volume
control, a built-in microphone with line-level output, built-in WAV sound file
capability and line-level input from other audio sources.
The TPS-4000 has the ability to transmit touch coordinates when “RS-232 Port for
Touch Output” is selected. Currently Telestrator devices are supported on the
TPS-4000. Refer to the “RS-232 Menu” section of “Configuring the Touchpanel” on
page 13 and “Appendix: Configuring the RS-232 Port for Use” on page 38 for
instructions on selecting this feature.
The purpose of the TPS-4000 touchpanel is to provide an economical replacement
for multiple controllers or older control panels having a complicated user interface in
either a Cresnet system or an RS-232 system with a series of simpler screens each
specific to the control problem at hand. Thus, a very large number of functions can
be made available to the user without the confusion associated with hardware panels
of that complexity. Icons, graphics, and text can dramatically increase any user's
comprehension of the control environment. Devices, functions, and control zones are
quickly organized and more easily accessed.

Sound
The TPS-4000 has built-in speakers with power amplifiers. Sound can be generated
by the panel using downloaded wave files (.WAV) or can be mixed in from an
external line level audio source. The audio amplifiers output 2 Watts per channel.
Refer to “WAV File Audio Messages” on page 23 for WAV file details. There is a
built-in microphone in the touchpanel, which is amplified to produce a line level
differential output. The microphone amplifier has two modes, AGC or fixed gain.
The AGC is selectable using an internal join number. Refer to “Reserved Join
Numbers” on page 26 for more information.
A “Dynamic range” compression feature is provided for the TPS-4000. When
enabled, the audio amplifier gain is reduced dynamically for loud signal levels, thus
eliminating most distortion at the speakers. For quiet audio signals, the gain is not
reduced. When “Dynamic range” compression is turned off (default), the audio
amplifier gain remains fixed for all signal levels at the given volume setting.

Interface Modules
Connect the TPS-4000 to an outboard interface module, which provides expanded
network, video, and audio connections for the touchpanel system. A 15-foot
connecting cable assembly is supplied. Cable assemblies of other lengths are
available and can be purchased from Crestron. There are two interface modules
available: TPS-IMPC and TPS-IMW.
The TPS-IMPC is supplied with every TPS-4000. This module is housed in a black
enclosure with a labeled top panel and network, interface, audio, and video
connectors. At the shorter sides of the unit, the enclosure extends to form feet at a
right angle to the side. These feet have mounting holes. Consult the latest revision of
the TPS-IMPC Operations Guide (Doc. 6162) for more details.
The TPS-IMW is not provided with the TPS-4000; it must be purchased separately.
This unit installs into a two-gang electrical box (2.5-inch depth minimum). A
Decora®-style wallplate can be mounted over the unit once it is installed to offer a
more eye-pleasing appearance. Consult the latest revision of the TPS-IMW
Operations & Installation Guide (Doc. 5857) for more details.
Tilt Angle Tension Adjustment
Use a 9/64 in (3.5 mm) socket (supplied by other) with a hex drive key (allen
wrench) to increase or decrease pivot tension at the base of the touchscreen. Turning
the key clockwise increases tension, counterclockwise decreases tension.
Tension Adjustment Screw
Industry Compliance
As of the date of manufacture, the TPS-4000 has been tested and found to comply
with specifications for CE marking and standards per EMC and
Radiocommunications Compliance Labelling (N11785).

Setup
Network Wiring
CAUTION: Use only Crestron power supplies for Crestron equipment. Failure to
do so could cause equipment damage or void the Crestron warranty.
CAUTION: Provide sufficient power to the system. Insufficient power can lead to
unpredictable results or damage to the equipment. Please use the Crestron Power
Calculator (http://www.crestron.com/ dealer-tech_resources/power_calculator.asp) to
help calculate how much power is needed for the system.
CAUTION: Possible equipment damage if miswired.
NOTE: When installing network wiring, refer to the latest revision of the wiring
diagram(s) appropriate to your specific system configuration, available from the
Downloads | Product Manuals | Wiring Diagrams section of the Crestron website
(www.crestron.com).
NOTE: Do not power up system until all wiring is verified. Care should be taken to
ensure data (Y, Z) and power (24, G) connections are not crossed.
When calculating the wire gauge for a particular Cresnet run, the length of the run
and the power factor of each Cresnet unit to be connected must be taken into
consideration. If Cresnet units are to be daisy-chained on the run, the power factor of
each network unit to be daisy-chained must be added together to determine the
power factor of the entire chain. The length of the run in feet and the power factor of
the run should be used in the following resistance equation to calculate the value on
the right side of the equation.
Resistance Equation
R < 40,000
L x PF
Where: R = Resistance (refer to following table).
L = Length of run (or chain) in feet.
PF = Power factor of entire run (or chain).
The required wire gauge should be chosen such that the resistance value is less than
the value calculated in the resistance equation. Refer to the following table.

NOTE: All network wiring must consist of two twisted pairs. One twisted pair is
the +24V conductor and the GND conductor. The other twisted pair is the Y and Z
conductors.
NOTE: When daisy-chaining Cresnet units, strip the ends of the wires carefully to
avoid nicking the conductors. Twist together the ends of the wires that share a pin on
the network connector, and tin the twisted connection. Apply solder only to the ends
of the twisted wires. Avoid tinning too far up the wires or the end becomes brittle.
Insert the tinned connection into the Cresnet connector and tighten the retaining
screw. Repeat the procedure for the other three conductors.
NOTE: For larger networks (i.e., greater than 28 network devices), it may become
necessary to add a Cresnet Hub/Repeater (CNXHUB) or Cresnet Network Poll
Accelerator (C2N-NPA8) to maintain signal quality throughout the network. Also,
for networks with lengthy cable runs, it may be necessary to add a Hub/Repeater
after only 20 devices.
Identity Code
All equipment and user interfaces within the network require a unique identity code
(Net ID). These codes are two-digit hexadecimal numbers ranging from 03 to FE.
Refer to “Interface Menu” on page 10 for instructions on setting the unit's Net ID.
The Net ID of each unit must match an ID code specified in the SIMPL Windows
program. Refer to “Setting the Net ID in Device Settings” on page 19 for details of
the SIMPL Windows procedure.
Configuring the Touchpanel
NOTE: The only connection required to configure the touchpanel is power (+24V
and Ground). Refer to “Hardware Hookup” on page 14 for details.
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 as power is applied. Remove your finger when the MAIN MENU
appears.
NOTE: The SETUP MODE can also be accessed through the Viewport Utility if the
touchpanel is connected to a control system via Cresnet or to a PC via RS-232 by
selecting Functions | Put Touch Panel into Setup Mode… from the Viewport
menu.
This menu can also be obtained via
digital reserved join number, 17242.
Upon entering SETUP MODE, the MAIN MENU, shown to the left, displays four
buttons: Touch Screen Calibration, Exit and Run Program, Setup, and
Diagnostics.
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.

Recommended 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, which may detrimentally affect image quality.
For best cleaning results, use a clean, damp, non-abrasive cloth with any
commercially available non-ammonia glass cleaner. Bezels 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 the bezels.

Programming Software
Have a question or comment about Crestron software?
Answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) can be viewed in the Online Help
section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com). Go to
http://support.crestron.com to post your own question or view questions you have
submitted to Crestron’s True Blue Support. First-time users will need to establish a
user account.
Setup is easy thanks to Crestron’s Windows-based programming software. Crestron
Application Builder™ (AppBuilder) creates a complete project, with no special
programming required. Crestron AppBuilder completes all necessary programming
for a base system including all touchpanel screens and the control system program.
Once Crestron AppBuilder creates the project, the system interfaces and program
logic can be customized. It can easily be modified with Crestron development tools
(i.e., SIMPL Windows and Crestron VisionTools® Pro-e (VT Pro-e) software
packages).
The program output of Crestron AppBuilder is a SIMPL Windows program with
much of the functionality encapsulated in macros. Therefore, extending the
capabilities of the system is very easy. Crestron AppBuilder and SIMPL Windows
are intended for users with different levels of programming knowledge. Crestron
AppBuilder is easier to use for the beginning programmer, and much faster for all
programmers. However, it does not allow the degree of control and flexibility that
SIMPL Windows does. 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.
Crestron AppBuilder comes with templates for all supported interfaces. If a user
wishes to create a touchpanel project using templates with a different look-and-feel
this can be accomplished by making a custom template. This custom template can
then be used by Crestron AppBuilder to create the final project files to be loaded into
the panels. Alternatively, VT Pro-e can be used to tweak projects created with
Crestron AppBuilder or develop original touchpanel screen designs.
The following are the minimum recommended software versions for the PC:
•
(Optional) Application Builder version 1.1.6 or later with Application
Builder Templates version 2.12 or later. Requires SIMPL Windows.
•
SIMPL Windows version 1.50.05 or later. Requires SIMPL+ Cross
Compiler version 1.1.
•
Crestron Database version 16.2.0 or later. Required by SIMPL Windows
and VT Pro-e.
•
VisionTools Pro-e version 3.2.17 or later. Used for graphical touchscreen
design. To use Synapse graphics and multi-byte international characters in a
touchpanel screen, VT Pro-e version 3.1.2.0 or later is required. Touchpanel
firmware version 2.060.0 or later is also required.
NOTE: The latest versions can be obtained from the Downloads | Software Updates
section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com). Crestron software and any files
on the website are for Authorized Crestron dealers and Crestron Authorized
Independent Programmers (CAIP) only. New users may be required to register to
obtain access to certain areas of the site (including the FTP site).

Digital, analog and serial join numbers are a common thread between VT Pro-e and
SIMPL Windows. These numbers define how the objects on a touchpanel page of a
VT Pro-e project interface to the outside world, specifically the Cresnet system as
defined in the SIMPL Windows program. There are digital join numbers that carry
out some predetermined function (a logical high or low); analog join numbers for
displaying incremental values, sliders, gauges and bar graphs; and serial join
numbers that allow for the display of variable text and transmission/reception of
serial commands from other manufacturers. Unjoined objects are not interfaced with
the system and thus cannot initiate any logic functions (although they can perform
page flips).
Programming with the Crestron AppBuilder
The easiest method of
programming, but does not
offer as much flexibility as
SIMPL Windows.
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. Crestron AppBuilder then programs the system, including touchpanel
projects and control system logic.
Crestron AppBuilder is fully integrated with Crestron's suite of software
development tools, including SIMPL Windows, VT Pro-e, and the Crestron
Database. 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: The following are acceptable file extensions for programs that include a
TPS-4000, developed for specific control system types:
.smw: projectname.smw (SIMPL Windows source file)
.spz: projectname.spz (compiled file for 2-series)
.bin: projectname.bin (compiled file for CNX generation)
.csz: projectname.csz (compiled file for CNX generation with SIMPL+)
.ush: projectname.ush (compiled file for CNX generation with SIMPL+ header file)
.usp: projectname.usp (source code module for SIMPL+)
.umc: projectname.umc (user macro for SIMPL)
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
TPS-4000 touchpanel. A Join Number Remapping (JNR) program can be written to
augment the functionality of the touchpanel by making some of the touchpanel’s
internal functions available to the SIMPL Windows programmer. Refer to “Join
Number Remapping” on page 22 for more information.
Configuration Manager is where programmers “build” a Crestron control system by
selecting hardware from the Device Library. In Configuration Manager, drag the

NOTE: SIMPL Windows automatically changes Net ID values of a device added to
a program if a duplicate device or a device with the same default Net ID already
exists in the program. Always ensure that the hardware and software settings of the
Net ID match. For Net ID hardware settings details, refer to “Interface Menu” on
page 10.
TPS-4000 Symbol in Programming Manager
Programming Manager is where programmers “program” a Creston control system
by assigning signals to symbols. The following diagram shows the TPS-4000 symbol
in the SIMPL Windows’ Programming Manager.

Serial
NOTE: Join numbers are expandable to 4000 digital & analog, 999 serial.
Signal Types
Signals interconnect the various devices and logic symbols that comprise a SIMPL
program. Signals can be one of three types: digital, analog, or serial. For any given
signal, the signal type is determined by its driving source. That is, if the symbol that
drives the signal has an analog output, then, by definition, the connecting signal is
analog.
In SIMPL Windows, the signal types are color-coded as follows:
Digital = Blue
Analog = Red
Serial = Black
Undefined/Other = Green
NOTE: “Other” signals are a combination of the three basic types (e.g. many
symbols accept either analog or serial signals; the combination is shown as a green
signal). The signal type is displayed on the Status Bar when the signal is highlighted.

For additional information, refer to the latest version of the Crestron SIMPL
Windows Symbol Guide (Doc. 6120). It can be downloaded from the Downloads |
Product Manuals | Software section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com).
Digital Signals
A digital signal contains one bit of information and usually takes on one of two
values: 1 or 0. These two digits can represent the logical values true and false, and
they can be represented in an electronic device by the states on/off or high/low,
recognized as two voltage levels. (Other common descriptors are active/inactive.)
Analog Signals
Unlike digital signals, analog signals can vary continuously in value, in the same
manner as a parameter such as volume, temperature, or pressure. Analog signals
contain 16 bits of information, which means that this type of signal can have values
ranging from 0 to 65535 (216-1). This 16-bit property makes analog signals useful for
controlling devices that do not have discrete settings, such as volume controllers,
pan/tilt head controllers, and lighting dimmers.
Serial Signals
Serial signals are much like analog signals, in that they, too, contain 16 bits of
information. However, whereas the value of an analog signal is used directly-to
control volume or temperature, for instance–the value of the serial signal is used as a
pointer to a location in memory that contains a string of characters. When a serial
signal is routed to a symbol, that symbol can identify the signal as serial rather than
analog and it will automatically look at the data it points to.
Thus serial signals are used to facilitate the transmission of serial data (strings of
characters). These signals can be generated by incoming data on a COM port or by a
symbol that has a serial output.
TPS-4000 Input/Output Signals
The TPS-4000 symbol provides up to 4000 digital input and output joins, 4000
analog input and output joins, and up to 999 serial input joins. The programmer
selects the signal types by clicking on the appropriate button at the top of the Symbol
Detail view when programming the panel.
The following tables list and give functional descriptions for the touchpanel outputs
and inputs.

Device Extenders
Device extenders provide additional logic and functionality to a device. The Poll
Manager and Sleep/Wake Manager symbols are device extenders for touchpanels.
Poll Manager takes the touchpanel on and off line during polling by the control
system. Sleep/Wake Manager suspends and restores operation of the touchpanel. For
additional information about Device Extenders, refer to the latest version of the
Crestron SIMPL Windows Symbol Guide (Doc. 6120), or the on-line help included
with SIMPL Windows.
Example Program
An example program for the TPS-4000 is available from the Crestron FTP site
(ftp.crestron.com/Examples). Search for the file TPS4000_SIMPL_Windows_example_(Doc.5863)_TPS-4000L_(Doc. 5783).smw that
contains the example program.
Join Number Remapping
Join Number Remapping (JNR) is a programming concept that allows a TPS Series
Panel to use join numbers with values over 4000 (Join Numbers 4001 to 15999 and
Reserved Join Numbers) by bringing them within the range of the TPS touchpanel
symbol, thereby increasing a touchpanel’s functionality. Through JNR, a TPS Series
Panel’s internal functions become accessible to a control system and can activate the
local functions of other touchpanels, route its internal feedback back to the control
system, and receive feedback from remote locations. JNR provides the additional
capability of managing IP IDs in Ethernet applications where a touchpanel
communicates with multiple control systems that have been uploaded with the same
program. Refer to the latest version of the Join Number Remapping Reference Guide
(Doc. 5969) and the SIMPL Windows help file for more details.
Programming with VisionTools® Pro-e
VT Pro-e, a design and programming Windows®-based software, permits the
creation of unlimited control screen variations incorporating two and threedimensional graphics and text as well as video and sounds (recorded as WAV files).
A set of pages, which make up a project, can be designed for each TPS-4000
touchpanel application. Each page contains objects such as custom control graphics,
two and three-dimensional buttons, sliders, and digital readouts which allow the user
to interface with the control system via join numbers. Unjoined objects are not
22 • 10.4 Inch Tilt Touchpanel: Crestron Isys® TPS-4000
Operations Guide - DOC. 6268
Crestron Isys® TPS-4000
10.4 Inch Tilt Touchpanel
interfaced with the system and thus cannot initiate any functions. The completed and
compiled project is uploaded to the touchpanel and programmed into the flash
PROM via the File | Upload Project command. The touchpanel uses the
programmed project until another project is uploaded from the PC. Projects cannot
be extracted from the touchpanel. The PC may be disconnected from the control
system or panel except during reprogramming. VT Pro-e also allows users the option
to generate projects destined for web browsers rather than for physical touchpanels.
Crestron’s Synapse image-rendering algorithm supports advanced anti-aliasing for
crisper, sharper images, as well as new shaded styles for all objects, new frame styles
(neon and raised), and new text styles (embossed, raised, and shadow). The Synapse
algorithm allows the touchpanel to process these styles internally, without the use of
large bitmap files that increase project size and upload time. Synapse delivers high
impact touchpanel graphics more efficiently than ever. To utilize Synapse graphics,
you must use VT Pro-e version 3.1.2.0 or later and Isys touchpanel firmware 2.060.0
or later.
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).
NOTE: The following are acceptable file extensions for programs that include a
TPS-4000:
.vtp
projectname.vtp (VT Pro-e source file)
.vtt
projectname.vtt (VT Pro-e template file)
.vtz
projectname.vtz (compiled file)
Multi-Mode Objects
Multi-mode objects offer highperformance programming!
The single most-advanced VT Pro-e high-performance programming technique
involving the TPS-4000 is the concept of multi-mode objects. A multi-mode object
(i.e., button, legend, etc.) is an object drawn on a VT Pro-e page that can have one or
more active and inactive visible settings (modes).
For examples, refer to the MULTI-MODE_OBJECT_EXAMPLES_OF_VTPROE_PROJECTS_USE_WITH_ISYS_TOUCHPANELS.ZIP file. It is available from
the Crestron FTP site (ftp.crestron.com/Examples). This file contains the VT Pro-e
touchpanel files and SIMPL Windows files that illustrate the high-performance
capabilities of multi-mode objects.
WAV File Audio Messages
The TPS-4000 is capable of playing audio messages as system prompts and
responses. These files are recorded as WAV files on a PC using an audio utility such
as Sound Recorder that is packaged with Microsoft Windows 95/98/Me/XP/NT/
2000™. Files from other sources may also be converted to an acceptable format by
using this or a similar utility. Many other audio utilities are available commercially
or as shareware. The TPS-4000 touchpanel only accepts the following WAV file
format: PCM, 8KHz, mono, 8 bit. For more information about how to use Sound
Recorder, refer to its User’s Guide and extensive help information provided with the
software.
Pre-recorded WAV files for voice prompts and responses are available from
Crestron. These files can be stored into and programmed for use in the touchpanel
directly or may be edited with the Sound Recorder. For example, the individual files
can be combined to create custom messages.

NOTE: WAV files (for the TPS-4000 touchpanel) can be obtained from the Wave
LC Library of the Crestron FTP site (ftp://ftp.crestron.com/Wave LC/).
Since the CT/LC-1000 touchpanel accepts the same WAV file formats, only use
those WAV files designated for the CT/LC-1000, TPS-2000L, TPS-3000, or
TPS-4000 touchpanels. These WAV files are different than those made available for
the CNXTA, Crestron CNX Telephone Audio Interface Card.
NOTE: WAV files reside in the touchpanel’s Flash memory and will affect the
amount of available space for touchpanel screens.
Sound Manager
NOTE: If keyclick is enabled on a touchpanel, each press of the touchpanel results
in an audible click. It may be desirable to conceal the keyclick sound for certain
buttons (e.g., if the button triggers playing of a WAV file). Using VT Pro-e, the
panel designer has the option to suppress the keyclick on a button-by-button basis
from the “Button Properties” window. A button must have a page flip or a join
number other than “0” assigned for it to click.
Crestron VT Pro-e (version 2.1.0 and later) contains an audio tool, Sound Manager,
which permits the panel designer to attach WAV files to a touchpanel project. Sound
Manager is available from the Tools pull-down menu and opens the “Sound
Manager” window, shown after this paragraph.
“Sound Manager” Window
Sound Manager Guidelines
There are three things to keep in mind when using Sound Manager.
1.
Each WAV file must be assigned a unique digital join number. The join
number options include none, keyclick, or a number (1 through 4000).
The default is none. If the keyclick option is selected, this WAV file
becomes the default keyclick sound for all buttons. The other WAV
files can be played by having the SIMPL Windows program assert the
feedback side of the assigned join number.
2.
Each WAV file must have the correct audio format and attributes for
the TPS-4000 target type selected in VT Pro-e. The correct audio
format is PCM, 8KHz, mono, 8 bit.

The first, sound playing from panel, differs from the other two in that it
is triggered from the panel.
a.
Sound Playing from Panel – The signal for this join number goes
high when the WAV file plays.
b.
Mute Sounds – All WAV files (except the keyclick) in the project
are muted when this join number goes high.
c.
Mute Key Click – The keyclick sound is muted when this join
number goes high.
Using Sound Manager
Sound Manager is broken into two distinct components. The Project Audio Joins
component, shown below, permits the designer to assign the three system-wide join
numbers described in the previous section. The three system joins can be assigned
automatically with the Auto button or by scrolling down to the desired number.
Project Audio Joins Component
The Sound List component, shown below, permits the designer to attach WAV files
to the touchpanel project. Complete the following steps to attach (add) a WAV file.
Sound List Component
1.
Use the Browse button to locate the desired WAV files. It should
appear in the field adjacent to the Browse button.
2.
If necessary, select the Play button to verify that the file in the browse
field is the desired file.
3.
Select the Add button to transfer the WAV file to the Sound List table
located below the browse field. The audio parameters of the file also
appear to the right of the table.
4.

5.
Select a WAV file in the Sound List table and click Properties to open
the “Sound Properties” window. Assign a join number either
automatically with the Auto button or by scrolling down to the desired
number. Select Description to enter comments about the WAV file and
click OK when done.
NOTE: The assigned WAV file will play once when the feedback join goes high.
6.
Repeat for each WAV file.
Reserved Join Numbers
A reserved join number is a touchpanel feature that enables a designer to create a
button in VT Pro-e that performs a predetermined function entirely within the
touchpanel that is not transmitted to the control system. By assigning a reserved join
number to a button, functions such as touchpanel volume control or LCD brightness
can easily be created in a touchpanel project without additional programming in
SIMPL Windows. The following tables list some reserved join numbers that can be
included in a touchpanel project.
NOTE: Many touchpanel configuration “shortcuts” are available via the software.
A button can be created on a page that either calls up the Preferences Menu, adjusts
brightness, etc., via reserved join numbers.
NOTE: Reserved join numbers can also be automatically activated by a control
system when using join number remapping. Refer to the latest version of the Join
Number Remapping Reference Guide (Doc. 5969) and the SIMPL Windows help
file for more details.

NOTE: Additional touchpanel functions with reserved join numbers can also be
accessed in VT Pro-e or by using Join Number Remapping in a SIMPL Windows
program. A listing of available reserved join functions are available when assigning a
Press Join in a Button Properties window in VT Pro-e or when using Join Number
Remapping in SIMPL Windows. For additional information on VT Pro-e, refer to the
help file provided with the software. For additional information on Join Number
Remapping, refer to “Join Number Remapping” on page 22.
MultiByte International Characters
Most languages use a single byte of 8 bits to represent a character, e.g. English,
French, German, Hebrew, Russian, Thai, etc.
Multibyte character fonts require more than the usual 8 bits to specify a character.
This occurs when a language has more than 256 characters (28) in a font. For
example, Chinese fonts contain several thousand characters. Other multibyte
languages include Japanese and Korean.
There are two separate issues with multibyte characters - static text on buttons and
indirect text on buttons. No Isys touchpanel firmware changes are required in either
case.
Static text on a button, entered in the standard way in VT Pro-e, always works under
Windows 98. Under Windows XP, you must use VT Pro-e 3.0 or later.
Indirect text on a button is entered in VT Pro-e and the actual string to be displayed
is entered in SIMPL Windows. You must use VT Pro-e 3.0 or later to guarantee that
the full set of characters in the font is stored on the touchpanel. You must use SIMPL
Windows 2.03.11 or later to enter Chinese characters directly. As of this publication
date, only completely single byte or completely multibyte strings may be entered or
Operations Guide - DOC. 6268
10.4 Inch Tilt Touchpanel: Crestron Isys® TPS-4000 • 27
Crestron Isys® TPS-4000
10.4 Inch Tilt Touchpanel
they will not be compiled correctly in SIMPL Windows. In other words, you cannot
enter Chinese character interspersed with numbers. You can enter Chinese characters
or numbers in separate strings. Crestron is scheduling time to fix this in the near
future and the release notes for SIMPL Windows will mention it.
For now, the workaround of showing a graphic that displays the string can be used,
but it is not dynamic.
Uploading and Upgrading
Assuming a PC is properly connected to the entire system, Crestron programming
software allows the programmer to upload programs and projects to the system and
touchpanel after their development. However, there are times when the files for the
program and projects are compiled and not uploaded. Instead, compiled files may be
distributed from programmers to installers, from Crestron to dealers, etc. Even
firmware upgrades are available from the Crestron website as new features are
developed after product releases. In those instances, one has the option to upload via
the programming software or to upload and upgrade via the Crestron Viewport.
NOTE: The Crestron Viewport is available as a pull-down command from SIMPL
Windows and VT Pro-e (Tools | Viewport) or as a standalone utility. The Viewport
utility performs multiple system tasks, primarily via an RS-232 or TCP/IP
connection between the control system and a PC. It is used to observe system
processes, upload new operating systems and firmware, change system and network
parameters, and communicate with network device consoles and touchpanels, among
many other tasks. Viewport can also function as a terminal emulator for generic file
transfer. All of these functions are accessed through the commands and options in
the Viewport menus. Therefore, for its effectiveness as a support and diagnostic tool,
the Crestron Viewport may be preferred over development tools when uploading
programs and projects.
The following sections define how one would upload a SIMPL Windows program,
VT Pro-e project or upgrade the firmware of the TPS-4000 touchpanel. However,
before attempting to upload or upgrade, it is necessary to establish communications.
Communication Settings
Connection of a PC to the TPS-4000 touchpanel can be direct via the RS-232 port on
the touchpanel or through a control system (Cresnet). Both methods of connection
provide setup for RS-232 communication.
NOTE: For laptops and other PCs without a built-in RS-232 port, Crestron
recommends the use of PCMCIA cards, rather than USB-to-serial adapters. If a
USB-to-serial adapter must be used, Crestron has tested the following devices with
good results:
Belkin (large model) F5U103
I/O Gear GUC232A
Keyspan USA-19QW (Discontinued)
Results may vary depending on the computer being used. Other models, even from
the same manufacturer, may not yield the same results.

To prepare the TPS-4000 for uploading or upgrading, refer to the following figure
for a typical connection diagram.
Typical Connection Diagram when Uploading a Touchpanel Project or Firmware
Alternatively, touchpanel projects and firmware can be directly uploaded to the
touchpanel from a PC without the use of a control system. To prepare the TPS-4000
for uploading or upgrading directly from a PC, refer to the following figure. Connect
the RS-232 port of the computer directly to the RS-232 port of the touchpanel. Refer
to page 15 for RS-232 cable information.
NOTE: Directly connecting to the touchpanel over RS-232 provides a faster
transmission speed than Cresnet.
NOTE: The touchpanel must be connected to 24 VDC and ground.

Appendix: Configuring the RS-232 Port for Use
To configure the RS-232 port of the TPS-4000, a local PC that contains a Crestron
Viewport is required. The Viewport is one of the development tools that is part of
Crestron SIMPL Windows or VT Pro-e software.
Obtaining Communications
Refer to “Communication Settings” on page 28 for detailed instructions on
connecting a PC to the touchpanel.
Configuration Options
There are several RS-232 communication options (at the time of this printing, these
were available):
•
CONSOLE – console active on RS-232 port. Use to load programs,
firmware, or to set configuration. This is the default. Use this
configuration if no other option is appropriate.
•
TOUCHOUT – touchscreen output sent to RS-232 port. Use for PC
mouse control or Telestrator output. Directly connect computer or
Telestrator box to RS-232 port on TPS-4000 (i.e., touch screen output).
For example, use when an RGB window with tablet overlay on the TPS
panel acts as a mouse controller for a PC. In this case, use the latest
version of the Crestron Serial Mouse Control Driver, which can be
downloaded from the Downloads | Software Updates section of the
Crestron website (www.crestron.com). Another use is with the
Pointmaker telestrator. For details, refer to the Telestrator Integration
Guide, which can be downloaded from the Downloads | Product
Manuals section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com).
•
EXT_TOUCH – RS-232 port used for external touch screen input (i.e.,
SMART Matisse Overlay or Microtouch Display).
RS-232 Port Configuration
After establishing communication with the control system, the RS-232 can now be
configured for communication with an option. Complete the following steps in the
order provided.
1.
From the Viewport, select Remote | Remote Console | Connect.
2.
From the “TPS>” prompt, enter the following command:
rs232 ?
3.
The TPS-4000 responds with the following:
RS232MODE [CONSOLE|CONTROL|RF|TOUCHOUT|MOUSE|EXT_TOUCH]
CONSOLE – console active on RS232 port
TOUCHOUT – touchscreen output sent to RS232 port.
EXT_TOUCH – rs232 port used for ext. touchscreen input
No parameter – display current setting

Operations Guide - DOC. 6268
Crestron Isys® TPS-4000
10.4 Inch Tilt Touchpanel
4.
Enter a command that chooses one of the RS-232 communication
options. Use the same spelling as shown in the last touchpanel
response.
5.
The TPS-4000 responds with the following:
New RS232mode set. Reboot to take effect.
6.
Enter the following command:
reboot
7.
The TPS-4000 responds with the following:
Rebooting system. Please wait.
8.
From the Viewport, select Remote | Remote Console | Disconnect.
At this point, the PC and the TPS-4000 are no longer communicating. Assuming that
the touchpanel is properly connected for use (as shown in the diagram for
“Communication Settings” on page 28) and the control system is connected to the
PC, the setup screens can be displayed to set the Net ID and other configurations.
NOTE: Alternatively, use a Cresnet command from the Viewport (communicating
to the control system) to access the setup screens. Verify the Net ID of the TPS-4000
and select Functions | Put Touch Panel into Setup Mode. Enter the Net ID and
click OK.
