15 Inch Lectern Touchpanel:
Crestron Isys™ TPS-6000L
Description
Functional Description
The Crestron Isys™ TPS-6000L is a 15-inch (38.1-cm) XGA (1024 x 768) display
suitable for lectern or wall mount in any Crestron remote control system (herein
referred to as the Cresnet system). The unit operates in a 16-bit graphics mode
(65,536 colors); palettes are not required. When displaying video or RGB sources
with the appropriate expansion card installed, the TPS-6000L can display up to
262,144 colors. There are two TPS-6000L models. The only difference between the
two units is that one has a black bezel (TPS-6000LB) and the other has a white bezel
(TPS-6000LW).
The purpose of the TPS-6000L touchpanel is to replace large, complicated hardwired panels 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, 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. The TPS-6000L
touchpanels offer:

Expansion Slots
Each TPS-6000L has three dedicated slots for additional functionality. The slots are
empty with blank cover plates. Cards are purchased separately. Installation
instructions are provided with each card. Each card features the following:
•
TPS-ENETL – a 10/100 BaseT Ethernet card provides Ethernet
capability to the touchpanel.
•
TPS-VIDL – a TV video digitizer card that allows NTSC/PAL video
to be played in a window on the touchpanel or full screen.
•
TPS-XVGAL – a RGB digitizer that scan converts a computer source
up to 1280 x 1024 at 60 Hz (110 Hz @ 640 x 480) vertical rate to a
window on the touchpanel or full screen.
NOTE: The three cards are NOT interchangeable.
Memory
The TPS-6000L ships with 8MB of flash and 8MB of DRAM. Additional memory
(purchased separately) can be installed in the field. The flash can be replaced with
modules of up to 64MB. The DRAM module can be replaced with modules up to
32MB. Installation instructions are provided with each memory module.
Sound
The TPS-6000L has four built-in speakers with power amplifiers. Sound can be
generated by the panel by using downloaded wave files (.WAV) or can be mixed in
from an external line level audio source. The audio amplifiers output two watts per
channel. Refer to "Appendix A: WAV File Audio Messages" on page 28 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 24.
I/O Connectors
All totaled, there are 13 potential I/O connectors available on the TPS-6000L. Four
of the 13 connectors are resident on the touchpanel as shipped from Crestron. The
remaining nine connectors are optional and require the additional purchase and
installation of expansion cards.

As of the date of manufacture, the touchpanel has been tested and found to comply
with specifications for CE marking.
NOTE: This device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to
the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference,
and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation.
Installation/Setup
Identity Code
Every equipment and user interface within the network requires a unique identity
code (NET ID). These codes are assigned a two-digit hexadecimal number from 03
to FE. Refer to "Setup Menu" on page 11 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 "Programming with SIMPL™ Windows" on page 20
for a sample.
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. Remove bezels to clean entire
touchscreen surface. Apply cleaning solution to the cloth rather than the surface of
the touchscreen. Wipe touchscreen clean and avoid ingress of moisture within the
panels.
Network Wiring
NOTE: When making wire connections, refer to the latest revision of the Cresnet
Network Interconnect Drawing (Doc. 5411). The document can be obtained from the
Downloads page (CABLES and MANUAL Libraries) of the Crestron website
(www. crestron.com). Search for the CRESNET.PDF files.
When calculating the wire gauge for a particular network run, the length of the run
and the power factor of each network unit to be connected must be taken into
consideration. If network 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
6 • 15 Inch Lectern Touchpanel: Crestron Isys™ TPS-6000L
Where: R = Resistance (refer to table below).
L = Length of run (or chain) in feet.
PF = Power factor of entire run (or chain).
Operations Guide - DOC. 5825
Crestron Isys™ TPS-6000L

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.
Hardware Hookup
The TPS-6000L touchpanel installs simply and cleanly into existing or newly
constructed walls, with back box and drywall mounting options.
Back Box Mounting
Back box mounting is typically used at new construction sites. The optional back
box, BB-6000, includes the necessary hardware, brackets and electrical box, which
provides a secure enclosure that, can be fastened directly to a stud. The details for
this optional mounting method are provided in the latest revision of the BB-6000
Installation Guide (Doc. 5826). After completing the steps in the installation guide,
simply mate the four posts of the bezel with the holes drilled into the mounting
surface and firmly press the bezel over the touchpanel.
NOTE: The mounting hardware and accessories supplied with the TPS-6000L are
not required for the back box mounting option.
Direct Mounting
The TPS-6000L is a low-voltage unit that can be installed directly into a mounting
surface. Each touchpanel is provided with mounting hardware and accessories, as
shown in the table after this paragraph.

MODE" appears on the touchscreen. Holding a finger to the touchscreen for five
seconds after the "SETUP MODE" message is displayed sets the brightness to high.
Upon entering SETUP MODE, the Main Menu, shown after this paragraph, displays
four buttons: Touch Screen Calibration, Exit and Run Program, Setup, and
Diagnostics.
Main Menu
The Exit and Run Program button verifies that all of the setup information has
been saved to EEPROM and displays the main page that has been programmed into
your system. The remaining buttons on the Main Menu open other menus, which are
discussed in subsequent paragraphs.
Calibration Menu
Calibration of the touchscreen is required if the active touch area of a button does not
coincide with the button's image. Select the Touch Screen Calibration button to
display the Calibration Menu, shown after this paragraph. The Calibration Menu
offers the choice to initiate calibration with the Perform Calibration button or

Setup Menu
NOTE: All touchpanel settings, except those menus with a Save and Return
button, are automatically saved in non-volatile memory.
Standby Timeout
The touchpanel display can be turned off (standby mode) when not in active use.
STANDBY TIMEOUT, located in the middle of the Setup Menu, can turn off the
touchpanel when it is inactive for a specified time frame (minutes, shown as XXX in
the illustration). When the touchpanel is activated, the last screen to be displayed
reappears. Minutes can vary from 0 to 120, where 0 disables the timeout. DOWN
and UP buttons decrease and increase the timeout, respectively.
Brightness
Screen brightness may need to be altered because of ambient light conditions or
personal preference. BRIGHTNESS, located in the lower left corner of the Setup
Menu, can change the brightness level of the display. The current brightness setting
is shown as a percentage in the Setup Menu (e.g., 99% brightness is shown in the
illustration). Percentage can vary from 0% (low brightness) to 100% (full
brightness). DOWN and UP buttons decrease and increase the brightness,
respectively.
Panel Tracking
Panel tracking is a useful communication feature between touchpanels when more
than one touchpanel exists on the network. Two buttons centrally located in the
bottom row of the Setup Menu control panel tracking. Button selection is indicated
by red text. When the Enable Panel Tracking button is selected, a given touchpanel
maintains communication in such a way that a page change to any touchpanel on the
network forces the same page change to all enabled touchpanels. Panel tracking is
disabled for a given touchpanel when the Disable Panel Tracking button is selected.
When disabled a given touchpanel does not respond to page changes made to other
touchpanels on the network. Panel tracking is factory set with the Disable Panel
Tracking button selected.

the left-most column in the Interface Menu. CRESNET ID is the two-digit
hexadecimal number represented by ## in the figure for illustrative purposes. The
Operations Guide - DOC. 5825

Crestron Isys™ TPS-6000L
hexadecimal number can range from 03 to FE and must correspond to the NET ID
set in the SIMPL Windows program of the Cresnet system. Matching IDs between
touchpanel and SIMPL Windows program is required if data is to be successfully
transferred. NET ID is factory set to 03.
Two side-by-side buttons beneath the hexadecimal display, DOWN and UP,
decrease and increase the ID by one, respectively.
The touchpanel usually communicates with a Cresnet system. Occasionally the
touchpanel can be used in a demo mode where it merely displays various menus, but
does not communicate with Cresnet II system. In demo mode, the directory buttons
change pages, but buttons requiring feedback do not work. Two side-by-side buttons
above the CRESNET ID, Enable CRESNET II and Disable CRESNET II,
determine communication mode. Select Enable CRESNET II for normal Cresnet
communication mode and Disable CRESNET II to set the touchpanel into demo
mode. Text within the selected button changes color from black to red.
Communication mode is factory set to Enable CRESNET II.
There may be Ethernet devices on the network that communicate with the control
system via CIP (Cresnet Internet Protocol). Two buttons in the top left corner of the
Interface Menu determines if the touchpanel is capable of this type of
communication. Select Enable CIP to permit this protocol recognition and Disable
CIP to prohibit any CIP connection.
The Interface Menu allows for four RS-232 communication options: console (i.e.,
loading programs), control (i.e., non-Crestron device), mouse input, or external touch
screen input. The four buttons in the upper right corner of the menu are available for
selection.
Crestron suggests that even if there is no intent to use the RS-232 port, the user
should select one of the four RS-232 communication options. Crestron recommends
the default, RS-232 Port for Console, if the port is not being used. If the panel is not
operating within a Cresnet system, it is possible to use Control or perhaps CIP
(Ethernet). Some advanced users may combine Control or CIP with Cresnet. Text
within selected buttons change color from black to red.
It is possible to maintain touchpanel control (with the Touch Screen Input button)
while communicating via RS-232 with the console or non-Crestron device. Text
within the selected button changes color from black to red. The Touch Screen Input
button is repeated on the RS-232 Menu for convenience.
Select the Save and Return button, located at the bottom right corner of the
Interface Menu, after interface parameters have been set.
RS-232 Menu
RS-232 parameters, shown after this paragraph, must be set when communicating via
the RS-232 port. Options for baud rate, data bits, parity, stop bits, and handshaking
are available. Text within the selected button changes color from black to red.

Audio Menu
The Audio button, centrally located on the top row of the Setup Menu, is used to
display the Audio Menu, shown after this paragraph. Use this screen to activate
sounds (recorded WAV files or line level input from an external source) and audible
key clicks on each individual touchpanel. This feature is a useful feedback tool or
can enhance a custom interface.
Audio Menu
Volume (for each audio type) is controlled with the up and down arrow buttons in
the first row. For example, the WAV File Volume value is shown as a red bar graph
and is controlled with the WAV down and WAV up arrow buttons. Line and key
click volume is similarly adjusted.
Balance (for each audio type) is controlled with the < and > arrow buttons in the
third row. For example, the WAV File Balance value is shown as a red bar graph
and is controlled with the WAV < and WAV > arrow buttons. Line balance is
similarly adjusted.
The Play WAV File button appears beneath Audio Menu title block. Select this
button to adjust the volume and balance as a pre-loaded WAV file plays. WAV file

audio messages can provide that custom interface with a touchpanel, assuming this
feature is enabled. To enable this feature, verify that the WAV On button is active
(red text). An active WAV Off button disables the feature. Refer to "Appendix A:
WAV File Audio Messages" on page 28 for WAV files.
Line level audio is possible only when enabled and the proper external connections
are made. Refer to "I/O Connectors" on page 2 for information about the AUDIO
INPUT port. To enable this feature, verify that the Line On button is active (red
text). An active Line Off button disables the feature.
Confirmation of a button press on a touchpanel is acknowledged by an audible click
assuming this feature is enabled. To enable this feature, verify that the Key Click On
button is active (red text). An active Key Click Off button disables the feature.
NOTE: If key click is enabled on a touchpanel, each press of the touchpanel results
in an audible click. It may be desirable to conceal the key click 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 key click on a button-by-button basis
from the "Button Properties" dialog.
It is possible to enable/disable all audio types (WAV, line, and key click) with the
press of a single button. The All Audio On and All Audio Off buttons allow for
global muting. Select the All Audio On button to enable audio; select the All Audio
Off button to disable audio.
The built-in microphone AGC mode can be controlled with two buttons on the Audio
Menu: Mic Audio AGC On and Mic Audio AGC Off.
Select the Default Settings button to restore all Audio Menu buttons and settings to
a factory-adjusted preset. Select the Return button, located at the lower right corner
of the Audio Menu, after audio parameters have been set.
RGB Menu
NOTE: The RGB button is displayed on the Setup Menu only if the TPS-XVGAL
is properly installed. Selection of the RGB button opens the RGB Menu from which
the user can adjust RGB settings.
The TPS-6000L can display a computer-generated video format. The type of format
must be selected carefully or the video may appear unstable or noisy. Selecting the
RGB button, located to the right on the top row of the Setup Menu, displays the

The characteristics of the input signal are displayed centrally at the bottom of the
RGB Menu. For example, in the above illustration, the input signal has a resolution
of 1024 x 768 with a frequency of 60.9 KHz (horizontal) and 76.1 Hz (vertical). If
the input signal has the same video (plus or minus some noise) as one of the presets,
The Detected Preset box shows the value. For the sake of this procedure, Detected
Preset 16 is shown as an example. If there is no preset detected, the box shows 0 as
the value.
The touchpanel is capable of storing 16 VGA formats; the panel is factory set with
the presets empty. To assign a format to a preset, complete the following steps:
1.
Select a preset button (numbered 1 through 16). For the sake of this
procedure, select 11.
2.
Select the Display RGB button at the top of the RGB Menu to display
the screen after this step.

3.
While viewing the sample of the input signal, use the arrow buttons
around the Center button and then the other arrow buttons to position
and compress/expand the sample so that it fills the entire screen.
NOTE: The Center button only needs to be used if the sample disappears from the
screen while making adjustments in step 3.
4.
While viewing the sample of the input signal, use the Phase Rev and
Phase Fwd buttons to adjust the timing of the sample.
5.
If necessary, select the More Controls button to show additional
controls for RGB.
6.
In the box beneath the characteristics of the input signal, confirm that
the Selected Preset number matches the one selected in step 1.
If 0 appears, no preset was selected in step 1. To correct, perform the
following steps (in sequence): 8, 1, and 2. Then continue with the next
step.

There are two buttons on the RGB Menu that influence the storage of format presets.
Use the Erase Selected Preset button to eliminate the stored format for the
highlighted preset. The Clear All Presets button eliminates the formats for all
presets. The touchpanel prompts the user for confirmation.
NOTE: If no presets are stored or the input does not closely match a stored preset,
the panel makes a 'best guess' for image settings.
The user has the option to manually select a preset for the incoming format or have
the touchpanel select one automatically. On the rare occasion, the user may want to
choose the Manual Select button to force a preset on an incoming format.
Otherwise, select the Auto Select button to have the touchpanel automatically search
through the preset formats for a match to the input signal.
Select the Return button, located at the lower right corner of the RGB Menu, after
RGB parameters have been set.
Video Menu
NOTE: The Video button is displayed on the Setup Menu only if the TPS-VIDL is
properly installed. Selection of the Video button opens the Video Menu from which
the user can adjust video settings.
The TPS-6000L can display video from up to two different video sources. Both of
these signals are automatically set up as NTSC or PAL, composite or S-Video.
Selecting the Video button, located to the right on the top row of the Setup Menu,
displays the Video Menu, shown after this paragraph.
Video Menu
Use this screen to select one of the video inputs and adjust the brightness, contrast,
saturation, and hue, if necessary. The user has the option to force the video image to
a certain mode (i.e., composite video or S-video) or switch modes automatically after
checking the image for colors. Use either the Composite Video or S-Video buttons
to manually control the mode. Composite video mode uses a single video signal for
luminance and chrominance. S-Video mode uses separate signals for luminance and
chrominance, which results in superior resolution and color fidelity. Use the Auto
Detect button for automatic control. The number (1 or 2) on the selected button
specifies the video input connector. Number 1 corresponds to the twisted pair
connector and number 2 corresponds to the BNC connectors. The text color of the
selected button is red rather than black.

Fast motion mode (if the Fast Motion button is selected) reduces motion artifacts
and should be used for most video sources. Still video mode (if the Still Video
button is selected) works best for still pictures. It has a maximum resolution and
reduces flicker. However, it suffers from motion artifacts. The text color of the
selected button is red rather than black.
Select the Soft button for soft mode video. In this mode, video filtering and noise
reduction can produce a better image from some sources. Alternatively, select the
Sharp button for sharp mode video. This mode provides maximum detail, but is
more susceptible to noise in source. The text color of the selected button is red rather
than black.
Use the Display Video button to actually display the video input signal. Select the

Multi-mode objects offer highperformance programming!
VisionTools™ Pro-e (VT Pro-e), a design and programming Windows-based
software, permits the creation of control screen variations incorporating two and
three-dimensional graphics and text. A set of pages, which make up a project, can be
designed for each TPS-6000L 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. The
project is uploaded to the touchpanel and programmed into the flash PROM. The
touchpanel uses the programmed project until another set is uploaded from the PC.
VT Pro-e also allows users the option to generate projects destined for web browsers
rather than for physical touchpanels. For additional software information, consult the
VT Pro-e help file.
The single most-advanced VT Pro-e high-performance programming technique
involving the TPS-6000L 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). Each multi-mode object has a
minimum of one inactive analog join; buttons and legends have a digital join with an
active and inactive analog join. There are actually 100 possible modes for each
active and inactive analog join. In other Crestron touchpanels, these settings are
limited to two visible settings. One setting is the active object's face, frame and text
color. The second setting is the inactive object's face, frame and text color.
Multi-mode objects offer power and versatility with simplicity. These three attributes
of a multi-mode are definitely intertwined. For example, assume a user wanted a
touchpanel page to display an object that changed color and associated graphic/text
based on the state of an analog join number controlled by a Crestron control system.
This example is analogous to a traffic light that changes colors as well as controlling
the text on a walk/don't walk sign. Using single-state objects, the user would have to
draw and manage five objects and three digital join numbers: one 3-D border, one
animation object, and three transparent buttons with active and inactive text color.
However, using a single multi-mode object, the programmer gets the same result
with less effort. All that is needed is one multi-mode button having an inactive state
with three modes. Furthermore, if the project needs to be edited, only one "Object
Properties" window needs to be accessed. And when it is time to recompile and
upload the file to the touchpanel, time is saved as well. VT Pro-e reworks only those
parts of the project that have changed since the last compile and upload.
Programmers no longer have to wait while each unedited graphic in a graphicintensive project is recompiled. It is plain to see that multi-modes are a programmer's

dream, come true. For more examples including the one described in this Operations
Guide, refer to the MULT-MOD.ZIP file. It is available from the Downloads page
(EXAMPLES Library) on the Crestron website (www.crestron.com). This file
contains the VT Pro-e touchpanel files and SIMPL Windows files that illustrate the
high-performance capabilities of multi-mode objects.
Not every VT-Pro-e object possesses the multi-mode feature. Only those objects that
lend themselves to valid applications are capable of multiple modes. These objects
include:
•
Border – Permits multiple indirect text, text position, font, frame, and
color.
•
Button – Same as a border for inactive states as well as active states,
multiple graphic and graphic positions.
•
Clock – Permits multiple formats and colors.
•
Digital Gauge - Permits multiple formats and colors.
•
Gauge – Same as digital gauge as well as line, bars, and 2-D lines.
•
Legend – Same as borders for inactive and active states.
•
Percent – Permits multiple formats.
•
Slider – Same as gauge.
•
Time - Permits multiple formats, colors, and styles.
Programming with SIMPL™ Windows
NOTE: VisionTools Pro-e (VT Pro-e) is a Windows compatible software package
for creating Crestron touchpanel screen designs. Refer to "VisionTools™ Pro-e
(Multi-Mode Objects)" on page 19 for additional details regarding VT Pro-e.
SIMPL (Symbol Intensive Master Programming Language) is an easy-to-use
programming language that is completely integrated and compatible with all
Crestron system hardware. The objects that are used in SIMPL are called symbols.
SIMPL Windows offers drag and drop functionality in a familiar Windows®
environment.
SIMPL Windows is Crestron Electronics' 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.
The next two subsections describe a sample SIMPL Windows program that utilizes a
TPS-6000L touchpanel. The first subsection details how the sample program works
with a textual description and block diagram. The second subsection provides a
broad description of how to actually create the SIMPL Windows program.
NOTE: The following description assumes that the reader has knowledge of SIMPL
Windows. If not, please refer to the extensive help information provided with the
software.
NOTE: There is no need to recreate the sample SIMPL Windows program. A
similar copy of this program is available from Crestron’s ControlCD (version 6.2 and
later). Search for the TPS-6000.SMW project in the SIMPL Windows Example
Base. A copy can also be obtained from the Downloads page (EXAMPLES Library)
of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com). New users are required to register in
order to obtain access to the FTP site.

How the Program Works
A basic TPS-6000L touchpanel SIMPL program is shown after this paragraph in
block diagram form. For this example, the TPS-6000L is the user interface in a
control system containing a CNMSX-PRO, which has a CNXRY-16 occupying slot
1. Assume that the TPS-6000L is used to control a lighting system via relays in two
rooms. Each room can have up to eight scenes of lighting. A scene is engaged by
latching a relay. Only one scene can be activated in a room at a time.
Block Diagram of System Incorporating a TPS-6000L
Room 1 uses relays A1 through A8; room 2 uses relays B1 through B8. When the
user presses any of the buttons on the TPS-6000L for room 1 (join numbers 1
through 8), the corresponding signal goes high on the input of the Interlock symbol
for room 1. The corresponding output of the Interlock latches high. Since the
Interlock is mutually exclusive, only that output is high. The corresponding relay
then latches high on the CNXRY-16 card.
How to Create the Program
Configuration Manager
NOTE: SIMPL Windows v1.50.05 or later is required to program the control
system containing a TPS-6000L touchpanel. If using an earlier version of SIMPL
Windows, Crestron recommends a SIMPL Windows and operating system upgrade.
The latest version can be obtained from the Downloads page (SIMPLWIN Library)
of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com). New users are required to register in
order to obtain access to the FTP site.

Appendix A: WAV File Audio Messages
The TPS-6000L touchpanel 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/NT™. 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-6000L touchpanel only accepts the following WAV file formats:
•
PCM
•
8000, 11025, 16000, 22050, and 44100 Hz
•
8 and 16 Bit
•
Mono and Stereo
NOTE: If the Sound Recorder program is not available on the PC, select Start |
Help at the Windows taskbar. Click on the Index tab and type in Sound Recorder.
For Windows 95/NT, double-click the installing entry. For Windows 95/98/NT,
follow the directions provided to add the Sound Recorder program. (The Sound
Recorder is part of the Multimedia component). The Windows install CD is
required.
This section mentions the location of the Crestron pre-recorded files and contains
descriptions as well as procedures on how to use Sound Recorder to record, edit, and
convert WAV file messages. For more information about how to use Sound
Recorder, refer to its User’s Guide and extensive help information provided with the
software. The last section of this appendix describes how to use VT Pro-e to attach
WAV files to a touchpanel project.
Downloadable WAV Files
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. "To Create WAV Messages from
Individual Files" on page 31 describes how to create custom messages.
NOTE: WAV files (formatted specifically for the TPS-6000L touchpanel) can be
obtained from the Downloads page (WAV_ISYS Library) of the Crestron website
(www.crestron.com). New users are required to register in order to obtain access to
the FTP site.
These WAV files are different than those made available for other Crestron products.
Be sure to use only those WAV files designated for the TPS-6000L touchpanel.

VT Pro-e: 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” dialog.
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” dialog, shown after this paragraph.

“Sound Manager” Dialog Box
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
assigned join number.
2.
Each WAV file must have the correct audio format and attributes for
the TPS-6000L target type selected in VT Pro-e.
Refer to "Appendix A: WAV File Audio Messages" on page 28 for
acceptable formats.
3.
There are three system-wide join numbers that the designer can define.
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.

15 Inch Lectern Touchpanel
Crestron Isys™ TPS-6000L
Appendix B: RS-232 Protocol
TPS-6000L touchpanels support panel operation via a host computer through the
RS-232 port. Crestron recommends that the following serial data format is set.
Suggested Serial Data Format
Baud Rate: 38400
Data Bits: 8
Parity: None
Stop Bits: 1
These settings may be altered via the RS-232 Menu when configuring the
touchpanel, however, doing so may prevent Crestron supplied software from
operating with the touchpanel. Low baud rates will cause the panel to appear
unresponsive. For example, at 300 baud, a single button press (and release) generates
12 characters and requires more than 0.333 of a second to send. Delays as short as
0.1 of a second are generally considered perceptible and somewhat annoying.
Command Format - Command format for all items sent to or from the touchpanel is
very simple. All items are ASCII strings terminated by a <cr>. Line feed characters
are ignored, thus <cr><lf> or <lf><cr> are also acceptable line terminators. When
the touchpanel sends a line, it is always terminated with <cr><lf>.
For all strings, the first character determines command type. Numeric arguments, if
present, are in decimal and separated by commas. No control characters are
embedded in the strings to ease processing the strings with high level languages. Be
careful when using commas in BASIC, because BASIC uses commas for field
separators when reading strings from a file using the INPUT # statement. Since we
are dealing with complete lines, use the LINE INPUT # statement to cure this
problem.
P<#> and R<#> Commands - When in RUN mode, pressing a button (assuming
that it has been joined) generates a six-character code in the format P###<cr><lf>,
where ### is a three-character decimal number in the range of 1 through 999,
providing for up to 999 functions. When the button is released, a similar code is
generated, with an 'R' in place of the 'P'. Given that only one button may be pressed
at a time, an 'R' code always follows a 'P' code. A fixed three-digit format is used to
simplify software on the host.
Codes may be sent to the touchpanel in the same form as they are received. The 'P'
form turns on a function and the 'R' form turns off a function; sending back
information received from the touchpanel (i.e., jumping pins 2 and 3 on the RS-232
port) makes the buttons momentary. Notice that the touchpanel responds to P and R
commands even when configured for other interface modes. Selecting an RS-232
interface mode merely enables P and R commands to be issued. In addition, the fixed
format is not required for commands sent to the touchpanel; P1, P01, and P001 are
all perfectly valid commands.
Compared to running on Cresnet, an RS-232 interface to a personal computer is
slower, provides less features (such as tracking, among others), is less noise immune
(Cresnet uses balanced transmission for high common mode rejection, RS-232 does
not), and requires the user to supply the control logic program in the PC.
V<chan>,<level> Command - Levels in gauge and slider objects may be set
through the RS-232 port. The command contains both the object channel number (1255) and level (0-65535) in decimal separated by a comma. For example, V6,32768
would set channel 6 to level 128, or half way up.
One quick note on baud rate and smooth ramping. Ramping is accomplished by
sending successive levels to the object. To do this in 64 levels over three seconds, for
example, requires about 576 bytes worth of commands to be sent, and could not be
40 • 15 Inch Lectern Touchpanel: Crestron Isys™ TPS-6000L
Operations Guide - DOC. 5825
Crestron Isys™ TPS-6000L
15 Inch Lectern Touchpanel
accomplished at any rate less than 2400 baud. Obviously, ramping several objects at
once requires a baud rate several times as high.
Indirect Text – TPS-6000L touchpanels support a feature that permits the text field
in any user-defined button to be altered on the fly in RUN mode. This is
accomplished by substituting a text pointer for the text in the button. The text pointer
informs the panel to use the contents of a variable that may be dynamically redefined
as the text field for the button. This presents a considerable advantage over other
methods in that changing screens does not destroy information and that information
may be placed in buttons not currently displayed.
The text pointer is a number in the range of ‘1’ through ‘127’ preceded by the
“pound” symbol (#). If [text…] is omitted, the text field is cleared. If [text…] exists,
it is added to the text field. For example, consider the following string :
#3Now is the time<cr>
#3for all good men<cr>
#3to come to the<cr>
#3aid of the party.<cr>
Assuming that a button with an #3 text pointer was being displayed, the contents of
the button would be changed to:
Now is the time
for all good men
to come to the
aid of the party.
NOTE: To clear the text field for this example, type in “#3<cr>”.
As each line is entered, the display is updated. Since the text may be placed in
several different buttons, no boundary checking is done to see if the text fits in the
button. If the text overflows the button/boundaries, it remains centered in the
button/boundary.

Return and Warranty Policies
Merchandise Returns / Repair Service
1.
No merchandise may be returned for credit, exchange, or service without prior authorization
from CRESTRON. To obtain warranty service for CRESTRON products, contact the factory
and request an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number. Enclose a note specifying
the nature of the problem, name and phone number of contact person, RMA number, and
return address.
2.
Products may be returned for credit, exchange, or service with a CRESTRON Return
Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. Authorized returns must be shipped freight
prepaid to CRESTRON, Cresskill, N.J., or its authorized subsidiaries, with RMA number
clearly marked on the outside of all cartons. Shipments arriving freight collect or without an
RMA number shall be subject to refusal. CRESTRON reserves the right in its sole and
absolute discretion to charge a 15% restocking fee, plus shipping costs, on any products
returned with an RMA.
3.
Return freight charges following repair of items under warranty shall be paid by CRESTRON,
shipping by standard ground carrier. In the event repairs are found to be non-warranty, return
freight costs shall be paid by the purchaser.
CRESTRON Limited Warranty
CRESTRON ELECTRONICS, Inc. warrants its products to be free from manufacturing defects in
materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of three (3) years from the date of
purchase from CRESTRON, with the following exceptions: disk drives and any other moving or
rotating mechanical parts, pan/tilt heads and power supplies are covered for a period of one (1)
year; touchscreen display and overlay components are covered for 90 days; batteries and
incandescent lamps are not covered.
This warranty extends to products purchased directly from CRESTRON or an authorized
CRESTRON dealer. Purchasers should inquire of the dealer regarding the nature and extent of the
dealer's warranty, if any.
CRESTRON shall not be liable to honor the terms of this warranty if the product has been used in
any application other than that for which it was intended, or if it has been subjected to misuse,
accidental damage, modification, or improper installation procedures. Furthermore, this warranty
does not cover any product that has had the serial number altered, defaced, or removed.
This warranty shall be the sole and exclusive remedy to the original purchaser. In no event shall
CRESTRON be liable for incidental or consequential damages of any kind (property or economic
damages inclusive) arising from the sale or use of this equipment. CRESTRON is not liable for
any claim made by a third party or made by the purchaser for a third party.
CRESTRON shall, at its option, repair or replace any product found defective, without charge for
parts or labor. Repaired or replaced equipment and parts supplied under this warranty shall be
covered only by the unexpired portion of the warranty.
Except as expressly set forth in this warranty, CRESTRON makes no other warranties, expressed
or implied, nor authorizes any other party to offer any other party to offer any warranty, including
any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Any implied
warranties that may be imposed by law are limited to the terms of this limited warranty. This
warranty statement supercedes all previous warranties.
