Industry Compliance
As of the date of manufacture, this unit has been tested and found to comply with
specifications for CE marking and standards per EMC and Radio Communications
Compliance Labeling.
NOTE: These devices comply with part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to
the following two conditions: (1) these devices may not cause harmful interference,
and (2) these devices must accept any interference received, including interference
that may cause undesired operation.
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 to help calculate how much power is needed for the system
(http://www.crestron.com/calculators).
NOTE: When installing network wiring, refer to the latest revision of the wiring
diagram(s) appropriate for your specific system configuration, available from the
Crestron website.
When calculating the wire gauge for a particular Cresnet run, the length of the run
and the Cresnet power usage of each network unit to be connected must be taken into
consideration. If Cresnet units are to be daisy-chained on the run, the Cresnet power
usage of each unit to be daisy-chained must be added together to determine the
Cresnet power usage of the entire chain. The length of the run in feet and the Cresnet
power usage of the run should be used in the following resistance equation to
calculate the value on the right side of the equation.
Resistance Equation
40,000
R< LxP
Where: R = Resistance (refer to the following table).
L = Length of run (or chain) in feet.
P = Cresnet power usage 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, and the other twisted pair is the Y
conductor and the Z conductor.
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 be
necessary to add a Cresnet Hub/Repeater (CNXHUB) to maintain signal quality
throughout the network. Also, for networks with lengthy cable runs, it may be
desirable to add a hub/repeater after only 20 network devices.
Identity Code
Every equipment and user interface within the Cresnet system requires a unique
identity code (Net ID). These codes are two-digit hexadecimal numbers from 03 to
FE. Refer to “Interface Menu” on page 8 for instructions on setting the unit’s Net ID.
The Net ID of the unit must match the Net ID specified in the SIMPL Windows
program. Refer to “Setting the Net ID in Device Settings” on page 12 for details of
the SIMPL Windows procedure.
Configuring the Touchpanel
Main Menu for CT-1550
NOTE: The only connection required to configure the touchpanel is power. Refer to
“Hardware Hookup” on page 8 for details.
It may be necessary to make adjustments or configure the touchpanel to accommodate
proper operation for the end user. This is accomplished through the Setup Mode.
Instructions for configuring the touchpanel are given in the following paragraphs.
The Main Menu, shown to the left of this paragraph, appears when a finger is held to
the touchscreen for about three seconds from the powered down state. This screen
indicates that you are in “setup mode” and can proceed to configure the touchpanel.

NOTE: Calibration works best
when performed with a narrow,
blunt instrument (i.e., pencil eraser).
Calibration of the touchscreen is required if the active touch area of a button does
not coincide with the button’s image. Select the Main Menu TOUCH SCREEN
CALIBRATION button to display the Calibration Menu, shown to the left. Select
the Perform Calibration button to initiate “calibration mode.” The touchpanel
prompts you with a message, “Touch Upper Left Corner.” Touch the corner of the
screen; be as accurate as possible. Another message, “Touch Lower Right Corner,”
appears. Perform the operation to complete calibration and return to the Main Menu.
Pressing the Return to Main Menu button at any time before completing calibration
returns you to the Main Menu without changing any settings.
NOTE: When touching each location during calibration, be as accurate as possible.
Use the tip of a capped pen or the eraser end of a pencil. To cancel calibration and
return to the Calibration Menu without saving calibration data, create an error
condition by touching the screen in an area that is opposite from the instructed area.
Setup Menu

Screen contrast may need to be altered because of ambient light conditions, viewing
angle, panel temperature, or personal preference. The CONT <<, and CONT >>
buttons adjust the screen contrast to a desired level. The buttons may be held down
for continuous and smooth adjustment of the screen.
Panel Tracking
Panel tracking is a useful communication feature between touchpanels when more
than one touchpanel exists on the network. Panel tracking is enabled when the
PANEL TRACKING button is selected. When enabled, a page change to any
touchpanel on the network forces the same page change to all enabled touchpanels.
Panel tracking is disabled when the PANEL TRACKING button is deselected.
Panel tracking is factory set with PANEL TRACKING deselected.
Brightness
Screen brightness may need to be altered because of ambient light conditions or
personal preference. The BRT LOW, BRT MED, and BRT HI buttons let you
choose from among three pre-set levels of screen brightness.
Backlight Timeout
Backlight Timeout Screen
The Backlight Timeout screen, shown to the left, appears when you press the
MANAGE POWER button on the Setup menu. Turning off the backlight when the
touchpanel is inactive can extend the life of the display hardware. When the
touchpanel is activated following a timeout, the last screen to be displayed reappears.
The default timeout value is displayed in the top portion of the screen, as shown. Use
the DOWN and UP buttons to change the value. Backlight Timeout can be set
between 0 and 120 minutes. The SAVE TIMEOUT button saves the current value.

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 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. Bezels may not provide a
watertight seal. Therefore, apply cleaning solution to the cloth rather than the surface
of the touchscreen. Wipe touchscreen clean and avoid getting moisture beneath the
bezels.

You can create a program that allows you to set up the CT-1550 to operate a
Crestron control system using the Crestron programming tools Crestron
SystemBuilder™ 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 (SystemBuilder) and use advanced
techniques that are available from SIMPL Windows to customize the job.
VisionTools® Pro-e (VT Pro-e) is a Windows® compatible software package for
creating Crestron touchpanel screen designs. Refer to “Programming with VT Pro-e”
on page 14 for additional details regarding VT Pro-e.
Earliest Version Software Requirements for the PC
NOTE: Crestron recommends that you use the latest software to take advantage of
the most recently released features. The latest software is available from the Crestron
website.

Wired 5.7 Inch Tabletop Touchpanel
Crestron CT-1550
The following are recommended software version requirements for the PC:
•
(Optional) SystemBuilder version 2.00 or later. Requires SIMPL
Windows (version 2.06.05 or later) and Crestron Engraver. Requires
SystemBuilder templates 1.01 or later.
•
SIMPL Windows version 2.02.11 or later with library update file.
Requires SIMPL+ Cross Compiler version 1.1.
•
Crestron Database version 15.6.5 or later. Required by SIMPL
Windows.
•
VisionTools Pro-e version 3.0.0.8 or later. Used for graphical

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 functions.
Programming with the Crestron SystemBuilder
The easiest method of
programming, but does not
offer as much flexibility as
SIMPL Windows.
Crestron SystemBuilder 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 SystemBuilder then programs the system, including all
touchpanel projects and control system logic.
Crestron SystemBuilder 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. Crestron SystemBuilder 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 CT-1500
touchpanel.
Configuration Manager is where programmers “build” a Crestron control system by
selecting hardware from the Device Library. In Configuration Manager, drag the
PRO2 from the Control Systems folder of the Device Library and drop it in the upper
pane of the System Views. The PRO2 with its associated communication ports is
displayed in the System Views upper pane.

displays the CT-1550 device information. If necessary, select the Net ID tab to
change the touchpanel Net ID, as shown in the following figure.
Touchpanel “Device Settings” Window
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 setting details, refer to “Interface Menu” on
page 8.
CT-1550 Symbol in Programming Manager
Programming Manager is where programmers “program” a Creston control system
by assigning signals to symbols. The following diagram shows the CT-1550 symbol
in the SIMPL Windows’ Programming Manager.
Detail View of the CT-1550 in SIMPL Windows’ Programming Manager
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 signal connected there
will be an analog signal.
12 • Wired 5.7 Inch Tabletop Touchpanel: CT-1550
Operations Guide – DOC. 6116A
Crestron CT-1550
Wired 5.7 Inch Tabletop Touchpanel
In SIMPL Windows, the signal types are color-coded as follows:
Digital = Blue
Analog = Red
Serial = Black
Other = Green
NOTE: “Other” signals are a combination of the three basic types (e.g. many
symbols accept either analog or serial signals where 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 Doc. 6120, Crestron SIMPL Windows Symbol
Guide. It may be downloaded from the Crestron website.
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 to which it points.
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.
CT-1550 Input/Output Signals
The CT-1550 symbol provides up to 999 digital and 255 analog input and output
joins, and up to 127 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 Doc. 6120, Crestron SIMPL
Windows Symbol Guide, or the on-line help included with SIMPL Windows.
Example Program
An example program for the CT-1550 is available from the “Example Program”
section of the Crestron website (http://www.crestron.com/exampleprograms). Search
for CT-1550.ZIP.
Programming with VT Pro-e
Unlimited 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 Windows-based 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 Crestron website.
Reserved Join Numbers
A reserved join number is a feature of the software that enables a designer to create a
button on a touchpanel page that completes a predetermined function. The table after
this paragraph provides a list of reserved join numbers available within SIMPL
Windows software.
NOTE: Many touchpanel configuration “shortcuts” are available via the software.

Crestron CT-1550
Uploading and Upgrading
NOTE: Crestron recommends that you use the latest software and that each device
contains the latest firmware to take advantage of the most recently released features.
Please check the Crestron website (http://www.crestron.com/updates) for the latest
versions of software and firmware. New users are required to register to obtain
access to this site.
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 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 CT-1550 touchpanel. However,
before attempting to upload or upgrade, it is necessary to establish communications.
Communication Settings
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 (discontinued)
Keyspan USA-19QW (discontinued)
Other models, even from the same manufacturer, may not yield the same results.
Connection to the CT-1550 touchpanel is via a 6-pin RJ-11 connector in the base of
the unit. Therefore, uploading or upgrading must be accomplished through a control
system. The procedure in this section provides details for RS-232 communication
between the PC and the control system. If TCP/IP communication is preferred,
consult the latest version of the Crestron e-Control Reference Guide (Doc. 6052) or
the respective Operations Guide for the control system. These documents are
