Two additional “trigger” style buttons are positioned on top of the TPS-6X for easy control of the display brightness, Sleep mode and other programmable functions. High Powered Wireless The TPS-6X brings a new level of wireless versatility to the Isys family of touchpanels. With both 2-way RF and 1-way IR wireless capabilities built in, the TPS-6X offers a choice of wireless platforms to suit the environment. Crestron’s high power 2.4 GHz RF technology allows long range performance up to 200 feet (61 meters) indoors using the CEN(I)-HPRFGW High Powered RF Gateway (sold separately). A range of selectable RF channels and power levels helps to maximize performance for both small and large facilities, from boardrooms, classrooms and home theaters to auditoriums and convention centers. High speed bidirectional communication supports true feedback with dynamic graphics and text, affording the capabilities of a wired Isys touchpanel in a fully wireless portable package. NOTE: Indoor RF range is 100-200 feet (30-61 meters), subject to site-specific conditions. Built in IR capability affords a wireless alternative that is immune to extremely noisy RF environments and suitable for sensitive applications where RF may not be permitted. An operational range of up to 50 feet (15 meters) line-of-sight is possible using a C2N-IRGW-1G or C2N-IRGW-F IR Gateway or CNXRMIRD IR Receiver (all sold separately). TableTop Tilt Docking Station Placing the touchpanel onto the TPS(I)-6X-DS Docking Station (included) converts it to a stylish tilt touchpanel, providing wired communications and video capability while charging the touchpanel’s internal battery. Both wired Ethernet and Cresnet® connectivity are available. When the touchpanel is placed on the docking station, it will switch automatically from RF wireless to fully wired operation if either Ethernet or Cresnet is connected. Without a wired Ethernet or Cresnet connection present, the touchpanel will continue to operate wirelessly while it charges. The docking station features a triple lock tiltable docking port, allowing the touchpanel to be tilted at any angle up to 45 degrees for optimal viewing and operation when docked. The angle can be freely adjusted during use or locked down at a fixed angle. A finger operated latch can be engaged at any time to lock the touchpanel securely to the docking station or left unlocked for easiest removal after recharging. The touchpanel can even be semi-permanently attached to the docking station for a sleek, full time tabletop touchpanel solution.

Many options available on the DIAGNOSTICS menu, shown in the following illustration, are numeric in nature and their interpretation is beyond the scope of this manual. DIAGNOSTICS Menu Hardware Hookup The TPS-6X comes in a soft felt bag to protect it during shipping. The TPS-6X does not require any connections for wireless operation but does need to be acquired by a CEN(I)-HPRFGW gateway (sold separately). Refer to “WIRELESS” which starts on page 27 and to the “Operation” section of the latest version of the CEN(I)-HPRFGW High Powered Gateway Operations Guide (Doc. 6587) for details. For Cresnet or Ethernet connection or to upgrade touchpanel firmware, the TPS-6X must be placed on the TPS(I)-6X-DS Docking Station, which must be connected to the TPS-6X IMCW Interface Module (both included), which in turn must be connected to a control system via Cresnet or Ethernet. For details, refer to the latest version of the TPS-6X-DS Operations & Installation Guide (Doc. 6576) and the TPS-6X-IMCW Installation Guide (Doc. 6533). Make the necessary connections as called out in the illustrations on the following pages. Refer to “Network Wiring” on page 12 before attaching the 4-position terminal block connector. Apply power after all connections have been made. When making connections to the TPS-6X-IMCW, use Crestron power supplies for Crestron equipment. To mount the TPS-6X, the touchpanel must first be positioned onto the docking station at a slight angle to latch the top portion of the docking station onto the touchpanel. Magnets on the TPS(I)-6X-DS attach to metal plates installed on the TPS-6X to secure the touchpanel in place (refer to the following illustration).

Recommended Cleaning Touchscreen 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 getting moisture beneath the bezels. CAUTION: Do not apply excessive pressure to the touchscreen display during handling. Doing so can crack the screen and damage the touchpanel. Enclosure Operations Guide – DOC. 6575B The soft felt bag the TPS-6X came shipped in can be used to clean the bezel and the rest of the touchpanel enclosure.

The symbol can be viewed by double clicking on the icon or dragging it into Detail View. Each signal in the symbol is described in the SIMPL Windows help file (F1). Programming with VisionTools® Pro-e Touchpanel screens should be created in VisionTools Pro-e (VT Pro-e) to allow switching of source signals to desired outputs as well as selection of the system mode. There are no special programming requirements to use the functions of the TPS-6X in a room control system. RF or IR Operation Using VT Pro-e, the TPS-6X can be set to communicate via either RF or IR. This selection is made using the Panel Type drop down menu at the time a new TPS-6X project is created, as shown in the following illustration. 42 • Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel: TPS-6X Operations Guide – DOC. 6575B Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel Crestron TPS-6X VT Pro-e New Project Window (Showing Selection of Panel Type) The TPS-6X project type, when loaded, will place the TPS-6X into an RF only mode. The TPS-6IR project type will place the TPS-6X into an IR only mode. When in IR only mode, the RF is turned off and will not function. In this mode, there is no RF radiation present. You must set the IR ID information to match your program. This is done on the WIRELESS SETUP menu (refer to “WIRELESS” which starts on page 27) and in the SIMPL Windows program (refer to “Programming with SIMPL Windows” which starts on page 36). Multi-Mode Objects Multi-mode objects offer highperformance programming! The single most advanced VT Pro-e high performance programming technique involving the TPS-6X is the concept of multi-mode objects. A multi-mode object (i.e. button, legend, etc.) is an object drawn on a VisionTools Pro-e page that can have one or more active and inactive visible settings (modes). For examples, refer to www.crestron.com/exampleprograms and search for multimode object examples. This file contains the VT Pro-e touchpanel files and SIMPL Windows files that illustrate the high-performance capabilities of multi-mode objects. Bit Depth and File Size A balance of performance and quality can be achieved by using VT Pro-e to configure the size of graphics in a project. Read this section to learn about bit depth and how to maximize the quality and performance of a TPS-6X project. Bit depth refers to the number of memory bits used to store color data for each pixel in a raster image. A touchpanel raster image consists of a rectangular grid of picture Operations Guide – DOC. 6575B Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel: TPS-6X • 43 Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel Crestron TPS-6X elements (pixels). Each pixel uses the same amount of memory to store its color data. The amount of memory is called the bit depth of the image. Greater bit depths are required to represent finer gradations of color. Increasing bit depth necessarily increases file size. A black and white drawing requires only one bit per pixel to store all the available color information. Using a 32-bit per pixel bit depth for a black and white image increases the file size 32 times without adding anything to the black and white image quality. In an 8-bit per pixel system, the associated 8-bits of video memory for every screen pixel contain a value referring to a location in an 8-bit color table. In this way, any one of the specific 256 color table locations is assigned to a pixel. A 16-bit highcolor system is considered sufficient to provide life-like colors. It is encoded using 5-bits to represent red, 5-bits to represent blue and (since the human eye is more sensitive to the color green) 6-bits to represent 64 levels of green. These can therefore be combined to provide 65,536 mixed colors (32 x 32 x 64 = 65,536). In a 24-bit graphics display, the video memory allocates 24 bits for each pixel on the screen enabling each pixel to take on any one of a possible 16.7 million colors. Each 24-bit value is composed of 8-bits for red, 8-bits for green and 8-bits for blue. These triplets of 8-bit values are also referred to as the red, green and blue color planes. A 24-bit image is actually composed of three component images which combine to create the truecolor picture. The reason this is called truecolor is that this is near the maximum number of colors the human eye is able to detect. Truecolor images are sometimes represented by a 32-bit value. The extra 8-bits do not enhance the precision of the color representation but act as an alpha channel that represents pixel translucence. 32-bit truecolor has become popular on the computer desktop to provide effects such as translucent windows, fading menus and shadows. In graphics intensive applications such as touchpanels, raising or lowering the color depth of the displayed graphics can achieve a balance of performance and quality. Lower color depths do not require as much frame buffer memory or display bandwidth, allowing them to be generated and displayed more quickly. Increasing color depth results in higher color quality at the expense of display speed and responsiveness. By using mostly 8-bit or 16-bit graphics and holding 32-bit graphics to a minimum (e.g. for a family photo, etc.), you can create a sophisticated project that will fit in the memory space provided and have the touchpanel remain very responsive. Relationship of Bits to Colors NUMBER OF BITS NUMBER OF COLORS 1 bit Black and White 2 bits 4 Colors 4 bits 16 Colors 8 bits 256 Colors 16 bits 65,536 Colors (Highcolor) 24 bits 16.7 million Colors (Truecolor) 32 bits 16.7 million Colors plus Transparency When creating a VT Pro-e project you can elect to compress and reduce the image size in the “Page Properties” window for the entire page and/or perform the same function of reducing the image size using the “Image Properties” window. A reduction in image size will save a considerable amount of memory space for your project. 44 • Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel: TPS-6X Operations Guide – DOC. 6575B Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel Crestron TPS-6X In VT Pro-e, the Compress checkbox permits the image to be compressed when compiling. This conversion may cause the loss of some subtle shading. To compensate for this, use the dithering to simulate the original shading. Check your image with each of the available dithering types to determine which will deliver the best quality image. Dithering type selection can be accessed from the “Page Properties” or “Image Properties” windows in VT-Pro-e. Refer to the following illustrations. VT Pro-e “Page Properties” Window – Bit Depth Selection VT Pro-e “Image Properties” Window – Bit Depth Selection Pushbutton Programming Any of the buttons can be programmed to access any frequently used command. Each button has a permanently fixed digital join number. Refer to the following illustration for their assigned join numbers. A description for each button signal is described in the SIMPL Windows help file (F1).

The left trigger key toggles power when the unit is undocked and initiates Sleep mode when docked. In addition, when held for five seconds, it initiates a touchpanel reset. The right trigger key toggles screen brightness, unless it is disabled with the on-screen button in the BACKLIGHT SETUP menu (refer to “BACKLIGHT” which starts on page 30). While both of these join numbers can be programmed to perform other functions, their main functions as outlined above will still be in effect, i.e. each button will perform both its default and its newly programmed operation. MultiByte International Characters Most languages use a single byte of eight bits to represent a character, e.g. English, French, German, Hebrew, Russian, Thai, etc. Multibyte character fonts require more than the usual eight 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 applications with multibyte characters – static text on buttons and indirect text on buttons. No Isys touchpanel firmware changes are required in either case. Indirect text on a button is entered in VisionTools Pro-e and the actual string to be displayed is entered in SIMPL Windows. As of this publication date only completely single byte or completely multibyte strings may be entered or they will not be compiled correctly in SIMPL Windows. In other words, you cannot enter Chinese characters interspersed with numbers. You can enter Chinese characters or numbers in separate strings or you can pad each number with “\x00” to make it multibyte and then combine it with Chinese characters in the same string. Of course, you can always use the workaround of showing a graphic that displays the string but it is not dynamic. To compile and use multibyte characters it is essential that the operating system understand the language. Windows XP and Vista are available in many international languages and add-on software is available for other versions of Windows. Example Program An example program for the TPS-6X is available from the Crestron website (www.crestron.com/exampleprograms). 46 • Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel: TPS-6X Operations Guide – DOC. 6575B Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel Crestron TPS-6X Uploading and Upgrading Crestron recommends using the latest programming software and that each device contains the latest firmware to take advantage of the most recently released features. However, before attempting to upload or upgrade it is necessary to establish communication. Once communication has been established, files (for example, programs, projects or firmware) can be transferred to the control system (and/or device). Finally, program checks can be performed (such as changing the device ID or creating an IP table) to ensure proper functioning.

POSSIBLE CAUSE(S) CORRECTIVE ACTION Touchpanel is set to wrong RF channel. Refer to “WIRELESS” which starts on page 27 to verify the touchpanel RF channel is set to match the CEN(I)-HPRFGW gateway’s channel ID. Touchpanel RF ID does not match the RF ID in the SIMPL program. Use Crestron Toolbox to poll the network. Check the RF ID for the touchpanel. Then refer to “WIRELESS” which starts on page 27 to set its RF ID to match the RF ID in the SIMPL program. Touchpanel is out of range of CEN(I)-HPRFGW gateway. Position the touchpanel within operating range or relocate the CEN(I)-HPRFGW. Refer to “Specifications” which starts on page 5 for operating range details. Touchpanel display is dark. Standby timeout has elapsed. Touch the screen to reactivate. Unexpected response from touchpanel. Touchpanel is incorrectly calibrated. Recalibrate the touchscreen (refer to “Configuring the Touchpanel” which starts on page 13 and “CALIBRATION MENU” on page 15). TPS-6X boots up with message saying “Your desired page was not found.” Invalid VT Pro-e project or no VT Pro-e project is loaded. Load/reload VT Pro-e project using Crestron Toolbox. Check Network Wiring Use the Right Wire In order to ensure optimum performance over the full range of your installation topology, Crestron Certified Wire and only Crestron Certified Wire may be used. Failure to do so may incur additional charges if support is required to identify performance deficiencies because of using improper wire. Calculate Power 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 (www.crestron.com/calculators). When calculating the length of wire for a particular Cresnet run, the wire gauge and the Cresnet power usage of each network unit to be connected must be taken into consideration. Use Crestron Certified Wire only. If Cresnet units are to be daisychained on the run, the Cresnet power usage of each network unit to be daisychained must be added together to determine the Cresnet power usage of the entire chain. If the unit is home-run from a Crestron system power supply network port, the 50 • Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel: TPS-6X Operations Guide – DOC. 6575B Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel Crestron TPS-6X Cresnet power usage of that unit is the Cresnet power usage of the entire run. The wire gauge and the Cresnet power usage of the run should be used in the following equation to calculate the cable length value on the equation’s left side. Cable Length Equation 40,000 L< RxP Where: L = Length of run (or chain) in feet R = 6 Ohms (Crestron Certified Wire: 18 AWG (0.75 MM 2 )) or 1.6 Ohms (Cresnet HP: 12 AWG (4 MM 2 )) P = Cresnet power usage of entire run (or chain) Make sure the cable length value is less than the value calculated on the right side of the equation. For example, a Cresnet run using 18 AWG Crestron Certified Wire and drawing 20 watts should not have a length of run more than 333 feet. If Cresnet HP is used for the same run, its length could extend to 1250 feet. NOTE: All Crestron certified Cresnet 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. Strip and Tin Wire 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. Add Hubs For larger networks (i.e., greater than 28 network devices), it may become 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 necessary to add a Hub/Repeater after only 20 devices.

The 16 channels define the frequencies at which the RF device will communicate. RF devices on different channels will not communicate or interfere with each other. However, since some of the channels are in the 2.4GHz ISM band (as shown in the following diagram), interference can occur with other devices using this band, such as 802.11b/g Wi-Fi devices, Crestron infiNET™ devices or Zigbee devices, although the differing protocols will not allow a link to be established or data to be transferred. Wireless 2.4GHz telephones and microwave ovens may also cause interference with the network.

While an effort has been made to determine operating specifications, some specifications are not constant. RF Communication can be limited by several factors including but not limited to EMI (electromagnetic interference), intervening objects, antenna orientation and receiver placement. To obtain maximum reliability and performance, some basic rules for installing RF transceivers are listed below. Minimize Interference RF reception range can be hindered by spurious EMI noise that may interfere with or mask the desired frequency, thereby reducing useable range. EMI is generated by any electrical device at various RF noise levels depending on the device. Sources of EMI include computers, video equipment, digital processors, lighting dimmers, lighting ballasts, motors or any large AC source. Every effort should be made to separate any RF transceiver from these sources of RF noise including Audio Visual equipment in racks. If a gateway must be installed in an equipment rack, make sure you have ample separation between the equipment and the gateway. Gateway Placement Optimum reception for any RF transceiver is obtained by installing the gateway transceiver in an open area or shelf with a clear line of sight (no obstructions between gateway and receiver). Crestron recommends that the gateway is at least five to six feet high for best results. Avoid placing transceivers or transmitters at a low height or on the ground. Placing RF equipment near metal objects, walls, corners or metal enclosures will compromise RF propagation and reception. Try to avoid installing gateways in equipment racks, service rooms, electrical closets or in rooms other than that which the panel is located. Antenna Orientation The antenna orientation on Crestron gateways has considerable effect on range and reliability. The best orientation is unique to each installation. There are three possible antenna orientations: Point the antenna horizontally (parallel to the ground) Point the antenna vertically. Point the antenna at a right angle to the gateway. Never point the antenna downward as this will decrease range and reliability. Refer to illustrations on the following pages for examples of the different antenna orientations. NOTE: RF propagation is best from the sides of the antenna. 54 • Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel: TPS-6X Operations Guide – DOC. 6575B Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel Crestron TPS-6X Horizontal Orientation Building Antenna Top of gateway Vertical Orientation Building Antenna Rear of gateway Operations Guide – DOC. 6575B Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel: TPS-6X • 55 Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel Crestron TPS-6X Right Angle Orientation Building Antenna Top of gateway 56 • Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel: TPS-6X Operations Guide – DOC. 6575B Isys® 5.7” Wireless Touchpanel Crestron TPS-6X Software License Agreement This License Agreement (“Agreement”) is a legal contract between you (either an individual or a single business entity) and Crestron Electronics, Inc.
