Crestron takes advantage of this specification for a variety of audio and video applications. Crestron recommends using CresCAT, CresCAT-D or CresCAT-Q wiring solutions. The following chart shows the maximum recommended cable lengths for various signal formats. Recommended Maximum Cable Lengths for Audio/Video via Crestron Certified Wire FORMAT MAXIMUM DISTANCE Composite 750 feet S-Video 750 feet Component 500 feet Audio 1000 feet For more information, refer to the latest version of the Crestron CAT5 Wiring Reference Guide (Doc. 6137). Operations Guide – DOC. 6355A Isys® Wall Mount Touchpanels: TPS-12L/15L/17L • 21 Isys® Wall Mount Touchpanels Crestron TPS-12L/15L/17L QuickMedia Wiring The Crestron QuickMedia cable (sold under the name “CresCAT-QM”) contains one CAT5E cable and one Cresnet cable in Siamese jackets. Installation of any QM device is as simple as installing CresCAT-QM wires from the output of one device to the input of another. Installations are flexible, affordable and fast. For more information, refer to the latest revision of the Crestron MediaManager Applications Guide (Doc. 6244). CresCAT-QM Cable CresCAT-QM Cable NOTE: Do not untwist the two wires in a single pair for more than 1/3-1/2” (0.84-1.27 cm) when making a connection. The twists are critical to canceling out interference between the wires. The aggregate cable length of a signal path originating at a QM transmitter and terminating at the TPS-12L/15L/17L must not exceed 300 feet (90 meters). Video signals may experience a loss of quality over very long lengths of cable. This phenomenon is due to the added resistance and capacitance of longer cable lengths and is not peculiar to either Crestron and/or QuickMedia systems. To ensure sufficient bandwidth, the maximum aggregate cable length should not exceed 300 feet. The use of lower-resolution signals may allow increased cable length but must be tested by the installer with the sources to be used. The QM pin assignment is based on the EIA/TIA 568B RJ-45 Jack standard. NOTE: When using CresCAT-QM wiring, four additional wires are included for making Cresnet® connections. When connecting multiple QM devices, the route between a QM origination point (transmitter) and a QM endpoint (receiver) cannot have more than two midpoints (e.g. QM-MD7x2 or other QM switchers). Refer to the diagram on the following page when configuring a QM network. 22 • Isys® Wall Mount Touchpanels: TPS-12L/15L/17L Operations Guide – DOC. 6355A Isys® Wall Mount Touchpanels Crestron TPS-12L/15L/17L QM Network Topology Identity Code Net ID The Net ID of the TPS-12L/15L/17L has been factory set to 03.

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 http://www.crestron.com/exampleprograms and search for multi-mode 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. WAV File Audio Messages The TPS-12L/15L/17L touchpanels are 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 46 • Isys® Wall Mount Touchpanels: TPS-12L/15L/17L Operations Guide – DOC. 6355A Isys® Wall Mount Touchpanels Crestron TPS-12L/15L/17L available commercially or as shareware. The TPS-12L/15L/17L touchpanels only accept 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. Also refer to the help file in VT Pro-e to learn how to use its audio tool, Sound Manager, to attach WAV files to a touchpanel project. 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: Touchpanel WAV files can be obtained from the Wave LC Library of the Crestron FTP site. Bit Depth and File Size A 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 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. The 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 the 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.

A reduction in image size will save a considerable amount of memory space for your project. In VT Pro-e, the Compress checkbox permits the image to be compressed when compiling. The 16 Bits checkbox converts a 24-bit or 32-bit image to 16 bits. This conversion to a 16-bit image may cause the loss of some subtle shading. To compensate for this, use the dithering to simulate the original shading. Various dithering types are available. Refer to the following illustrations.

Each button has a permanently fixed digital join number. The sequence of digital join numbers is (left to right) 1 through 4. Refer to the following diagram for their assigned join numbers. A description for each button signal is described in the SIMPL Windows help file (F1). Pushbutton Layout and Join Number Assignment RESET JOIN 1 JOIN 2 JOIN 3 JOIN 4 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 VT 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 is available in many international languages and add-on software is available for other versions of Windows.

Enter “SETUP MODE” and recalibrate. Communications via the LAN port not functioning. Improper Ethernet connection (IEC). Verify proper connection at touchpanel LAN port. Another device set to the same IP address. Obtain new touchpanel static IP address. 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 (http://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 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. Operations Guide – DOC. 6355A Isys® Wall Mount Touchpanels: TPS-12L/15L/17L • 55 Isys® Wall Mount Touchpanels Crestron TPS-12L/15L/17L 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.
