Bulletin 6185-C and 6185-B Industrial Flat Panel Monitors
Installing Your Monitor
Before you Begin
This section describes how to install the 6185-C and 6185-B.
When installing the monitor, it is important to consider environmental
factors that could affect performance as well as possible effects from
equipment operation on personnel and nearby equipment.
The figure on the left displays the general process to install, connect, and
adjust your monitor.
Installation Guidelines
Following these guidelines will help ensure that the monitor provides
safe and reliable service.
• Ensure that sufficient power is available from a single phase AC
outlet at the site.
• Ensure that sufficient space is available around air inlets and outlets
to provide the circulation necessary for cooling. Never allow air
passages to become obstructed.
• Ensure that the ambient air temperature will not exceed the
specified maximum temperature. You may need a user-supplied fan,
heat exchanger, or air conditioner to meet this condition in some
installations.
Note:
Remember that heat rises—many times the temperature at
the top of an enclosure is much higher than the rest of the
enclosure if the air is not circulating.
Important: This monitor is designed to operate at a range of extremes,
however it is not good design practice to continuously
operate the monitor at the highest end of the specified
temperature range.
While the product will operate at its highest specified
temperature, the overall life span of any electronic device is
shortened when it operates at its highest rated temperature.
• Leave the monitor’s enclosure or cover in place at all times during
operation. The cover affords protection against high voltages inside
the monitor and inhibits radio-frequency emissions that might
interfere with other equipment.
• The Federal Communications Commission has prepared a pamphlet
that addresses the problem of radio frequency interference to radio
Publication 6185-5.1
Installing Your Monitor
11
and television reception, which should be consulted in case of
problems with such interference. This publication, “How to Identify
and Resolve Radio/TV Interference Problems” (Stock #004-00000345-4) may be obtained from the US Government Printing Office,
Washington, DC 20402.
• Determine the minimum and maximum ambient humidity for the
monitor by consulting the Appendix E: Product Specifications on
page 50. Ensure that the humidity of the ambient air will not exceed
these limits. In very dry environments, static charges build up very
readily. Proper grounding of the equipment through the AC power
cord can help reduce the likelihood of static discharges, which may
cause shocks and damage electronic components.
Publication 6185-5.1

Bulletin 6185-C and 6185-B Industrial Flat Panel Monitors
Installing Your Monitor
Panel mount monitors are designed to provide protection against water
and dust to NEMA 4 (IP65) and NEMA 12 (IP53) standards.
Slides or shelves are not required because the panel mount monitor is
designed to be supported by the panel in which it is installed.
Note:
Using optional rack adapters, you can install the 6185-C
into a rack. For procedures, skip this section and see
Appendix A: Installing Your Monitor in a Rack on page 38.

Panel Mounting Guidelines
Observe the following precautions before installing the unit in a panel:
• Confirm that there is adequate space behind the panel. Remember to
allow extra space (0.5 in. or 12.7 mm behind and on each side) for air
circulation.
− For a 6185-C, a cabinet with a minimum depth of 4.4 in. (112mm)
is sufficient.
− For a 6185-B, a cabinet with a minimum depth of 3.25 in.
(82.6mm) is sufficient.
• Take precautions so that metal cuttings do not enter any components
that are already installed in the panel.
• Supporting panels should be at least 14 gauge to ensure proper
sealing against water and dust and to provide proper support. The
mounting hardware supplied accommodates panels up to 0.25 in.
(6.35 mm) thick.
Note:
Supporting panels must be cut and drilled to
specifications before installation.
ATTENTION: Failure to follow these warnings may
result in personal injury or damage to the panel
components.
Before Unpacking the Monitor
Before unpacking a new monitor, inspect the shipping carton for
damage. If damage is visible, immediately contact the shipper and
request assistance. Otherwise, proceed with unpacking.
Note:
Make sure you keep the original packaging for the monitor
in case you need to return the monitor for repair.
Installing Your Monitor
1. Prepare panel cutout for monitor. Refer to specific cutout drawings
in Appendix B: Monitor Dimensions on page 41.
2. Carefully remove the monitor from its packaging.
Publication 6185-5.1
14
Bulletin 6185-C and 6185-B Industrial Flat Panel Monitors
3. If access to the side of the monitor is not available following
installation, attach the power and video cables to the side of the
monitor at this time. Refer to the figure on Page 15.
4. Install the monitor in the prepared cutout.
5. Install the lock nuts and washers, supplied with the monitor, around
the perimeter of the monitor. Extra lock nuts and washers are
provided.
Note:
Use #10-32 or M5 self-locking nuts for mounting.
ATTENTION: You must apply nuts and washers on all
studs for NEMA 4/12 fluid applications.
6. Tighten all mounting nuts evenly to a torque of 24 inch-pounds.
ATTENTION: Mounting nuts must be tightened to a
torque of 24 inch-pounds to provide panel seal and avoid
potential damage. Rockwell Automation assumes no
responsibility for water or chemical damage to the
monitor or other equipment within the enclosure due to
improper installation.

Bulletin 6185-C and 6185-B Industrial Flat Panel Monitors
Safety Considerations
When connecting the monitor, note the following safety considerations:
ATTENTION: EXPLOSION HAZARD! – Substitution
of components (6185-C) may impair suitability for Class
I, Div. 2.
EXPLOSION HAZARD! – Do not disconnect
equipment (6185-C) unless power has been switched off
or the area is known to be non-hazardous.
Connecting a Host Video
Source
The video connection to the host is made through a HD-15 (female)
connector located on the side panel.
Note:
For more information on using a HD-15 video cable to
connect to the host computer, see page 49.
To establish a signal using the HD-15 connector:
1. Obtain a shielded, properly terminated video cable of length as short
as possible. Longer cables (up to approximately 75 feet in some
cases) may be used, provided they are properly constructed. Your
package may include a six-foot or 15-foot video cable, if specified.
2. Connect one end of the cable to the female HD-15 video input
connector on the side panel of the monitor.
3. Connect the other end to the output of any IBM-compatible VGA
adapter or other video generator.
Note:
Publication 6185-5.1
You may connect the monitor to video generators that
do not conform to VGA standards. The main
requirement is that the generator provides analog RGB
video signals (0.714V above reference black into 75
ohms) and separate horizontal and vertical sync signals.
Making Connections
Connecting the
Touchscreen Interface
(Optional)
17
The serial touchscreen interface connection to the host is made through
an RS-232 DE-9 (female) D-shell connector located on the side panel.
The optional touchscreen provides a high-resolution touch input system.
Driver software included with the package allows the touchscreen to
function with many popular DOS and Windows® -based industrial
applications as a pointing device (mouse).
Note:
Refer to Appendix C: Touchscreen Serial Interface on page
46 for additional details on the installation and operation of
the touchscreen.
To connect the touchscreen:
1. For units with the touchscreen option, make sure you have one of the
optional serial cables.
2. Connect one end of the touchscreen serial cable to the T/S port
connector on the side of the monitor.
3. Connect the other end to any communications port on the host
computer.
4. Tighten the captive screws on the cable connector to secure it.
Connecting Power
Allen-Bradley monitors can be ordered with either AC or DC power
option.
Connecting AC Power
The 6185-C and 6185-B monitors with an AC power option require a
single-phase power supply providing 85 to 264V AC at 47 to 70 Hz.
Power must be available at a grounded three-pin outlet located nearby.
Whenever possible, connect the monitor to the same AC source that
supplies the computer.
To connect AC power to the monitor:
1. Turn off the main switch or breaker.
2. Use the ground terminal of the monitor to establish a chassis-to-earth
ground connection. The ground terminal is an M5 screw. Secure one
end of a ground strap to the ground terminal. Connect the other end
of the ground strap to a good earth ground.
Publication 6185-5.1
18
Bulletin 6185-C and 6185-B Industrial Flat Panel Monitors
ATTENTION: Chassis ground must be connected for
safe operation of the monitor. The AC receptacle on the
monitor is a 3-wire type with chassis ground pin, and the
mating AC cord supplied is a 3-wire type, designed for
connection to a grounded 3-pin AC outlet. However, a
properly ground AC outlet is not always available, and
grounding using a 3-wire cord can easily be defeated. If
you fail to ground the monitor properly, the setup may
result in personal injury from electrical shock or damage
to the equipment.
3. Connect the socket end of the AC power cord to the mating
connector on the side of the monitor and secure the cord with the
power cord retainer clip. See the figure on page 15.
ATTENTION: EXPLOSION HAZARD! You must
install the power cord retainer clip to ensure safety in
hazardous locations.
Failure to secure the power cord with the retainer clip
could result in hazardous conditions if the power cord is
accidentally disconnected.
ATTENTION: EXPLOSION HAZARD! – Do not
disconnect equipment unless power has been switched off
or the area is known to be non-hazardous.
4. Connect the plug end of the AC power cord to the main outlet.
5. Restore AC power to the outlet.
6. Proceed to Configuring Video Setup on page 20.
Connecting DC Power
The 6185-C and 6185-B monitors with a DC power option require a DC
power supply providing 18 to 32V DC.
To connect DC power to the monitor:
1. Turn off the main switch or breaker.
2. Use the ground terminal on the monitor to establish a chassis-toearth ground connection. The ground terminal is an M5 screw.
Secure one end of a ground strap to the ground terminal. Connect the
other end of the ground strap to a good earth ground.
Publication 6185-5.1
Making Connections
19
ATTENTION: Chassis ground must be connected for
safe operation of the monitor. The DC screw terminals on
the monitor have a chassis ground pin. However, some
DC sources may not provide a proper ground path. If you
fail to ground the monitor properly, the setup may result
in personal injury from electrical shock or damage to the
equipment.
ATTENTION: EXPLOSION HAZARD! – Do not
disconnect equipment unless power has been switched off
or the area is known to be non-hazardous.
3. Route the power wires from your 18-32 VDC power supply and
connect the leads to the DC input terminal block on the monitor as
shown in the following figure. Tighten the screw terminals to ensure
a good connection.

Configuring Video Setup
After making the connections, you are ready to setup your monitor.
This section describes how to setup and configure your monitor.
You will need to use the following procedures:
• Setting Up Your Workstation - verifies that your workstation is using
the appropriate settings. See page 21.
• Using the Screen Setup Utility - provides graphical guidelines to use
when adjusting the OSD settings. See page 24.
• Working with the OSD - allows you to physically change the monitor
settings on the monitor. See page 25.
In the figure on the left, the gray shaded areas represent where you are
now in the general process to install, connect, and adjust your monitor.
Importance of Correctly Setting Up the Monitor
If you do not correctly set up the flat panel monitor, the image may
appear correct when you view the Windows Desktop (the screen
displayed initially displayed when Windows starts). However, when you
display an application with certain colors or patterns, you may notice
noisy video or jitter problems at that time.
For example, if the horizontal or vertical position of the display is not
adjusted correctly, one edge of the screen image may extend beyond the
side of the monitor screen.
The horizontal size and clock phase adjustments are especially important
for flat panel monitors. If the horizontal size setting is not properly
adjusted, the screen image may contain vertical shaded bars or the image
may be too wide or too narrow for the screen. If the clock phase setting
is not properly adjusted, the screen image may be “jittery.”
Publication 6185-5.1
Configuring Video Setup

Monitor Video Adjustments
You may also need to adjust the brightness or contrast of the screen
image based on the conditions of the location in which the monitor is
installed.
Setting Up Your
Workstation
Note:
The screen setup utility delivered with this flat panel
monitor is designed to present the "worst case" scenario for
graphic display. It shows a range of colors and presents a
pattern you can use to ensure that the monitor is adjusted
properly.
Note:
Flat panel monitors are not susceptible to magnetic
interference in the same way that CRT monitors are.
However, all monitors are susceptible to ground loop
problems between the computer and the monitor. Ground
loops occur when two or more devices with different
ground potentials are connected with cables and ground
currents flow between. These currents may cause vertical or
horizontal noise bars to move through the display screen.
Verify and change these settings for your workstation using the Windows
Control Panel.
To access monitor settings, select the Start button and select Settings to
access Control Panel. In Control Panel, select Display to access monitor
settings. The options on the Control Panel screens may vary depending
on your video driver.
Selecting the Monitor Type
If you are using Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows 2000 and your
video card supports it, you should enable your workstation to detect Plug
& Play monitors and select Plug and Play as the monitor type.
Publication 6185-5.1
22
Bulletin 6185-C and 6185-B Industrial Flat Panel Monitors
Note:
These monitors use a flat panel display, but they use the
workstation’s analog VGA interface. Because of this, some
setup screens may indicate that the monitor is operating as a
CRT (analog) device, rather than a flat panel (digital)
device.
If your video card does not support Plug and Play, or if you are using
Windows NT, you should the monitor type manually. These settings are:
• Plug and Play Monitor - 6185-C and 6185-B with Plug and Play
enabled system
• Super VGA 1024x768 - 6185-C manual setting
• Super VGA 800x600 - 6185-B manual setting
Depending on if you are using Windows NT, Windows 95 or Windows
98, accessing the settings differ.
Use the following table as a procedure guideline for accessing the
monitor types manually.

Setting Up Video Resolution
Flat panel monitors are fixed resolution devices and the image looks best
when operated at their native resolution.
If you switch the resolution of this monitor from the native resolutions,
the display may look slightly distorted due to replication techniques used
to display the full screen. The native resolutions are as follows:
• 1024x768 for 6185-C
• 800x600 for 6185-B
The following table lists the amount of video memory you need to run in
each video mode:

8-bit, 16-bit, or 24-bit color, you must operate the monitor
in True Color mode (24-bit color) to use the full color range
of the monitor. The monitor will interpret the colors
correctly.
Verifying Video Refresh Rate
Unlike CRT monitors, there is no benefit to operating a flat panel
monitor at higher vertical refresh rates. It is best to select 60 Hz.
You can verify video refresh rate for your workstation using the
Windows Control Panel.

Full Range Dimming
Control
(Optional 6185-C Only)
31
Allen-Bradley provides a full range dimming control option for the
6185-C that allows full range control of image luminance from the front
panel. The full range dimming control option is Accessory option A.
Adjusting the Full Range Dimming Control
The LEDs are present with or without the dimmer control, but the two
buttons that adjust the luminance of the monitor are optional.
Figure 11
Optional Full Range Dimming Control
Note:
The dimming controls are located on the rear of the monitor
with the optional stainless steel front panel.
The control buttons adjust the luminance of the image, which is not the
same as a brightness setting. Luminance refers to the actual intensity of
the light emitted from the monitor. Brightness refers to the appearance of
the image displayed – a range between dark and dazzling. The backlights
are controlled by the luminance control.
Publication 6185-5.1
32
Bulletin 6185-C and 6185-B Industrial Flat Panel Monitors
To adjust the luminance of the monitor:
Press and hold either one of the dimmer buttons until the luminance is
adjusted as desired.
• The left dimmer button reduces the luminance and the right button
increases it.
• The green LED blinks fast when you first press the button and slows
as you reach the end of the adjustment range.
• When you release the dimmer button for three seconds, the amber
LED blinks twice to indicate that your changes have been saved and
will be used each time the monitor is powered ON.
To turn off the monitor without turning off the power:
1. Press and hold both buttons for 2 seconds, until the monitor’s
backlight is turned OFF.
2. Press either button to turn the backlight back ON.

Publication 6185-5.1
Configuring Video Setup
Calibrating the Video Gain
33
Monitors with this a full range dimming control option have a calibration
mode to allow you to compensate for abnormal video signal levels.
Many PC video cards drive the video signal above the .714V as defined
by the VGA standard. You may need to calibrate the video gain if you
see “ghosting” (shadows to the right of the image) or washed out colors.
To calibrate the monitor:
1. Insert the diskette provided with the monitor in the floppy drive of
the host computer.
Note:
The adjustment utility is designed for 32-bit operating
systems only (Windows 95/98/2000 or
Windows NT 4.0 or greater).
2. Start the screen setup utility using the instructions on the diskette
label.
3. Press and hold down both luminance buttons for eight seconds.
Note:
The screen will go blank after two seconds and will
come back on after eight seconds.
The amber LED blinks slowly to indicate that you are in calibration
mode.
4. Use the left luminance button to lower the contrast until the white
bar stays white and the first light gray bar changes back to light gray.
This is the optimal setting for the video gain. (See the figure on
Page 29.)
5. Press and hold down both luminance buttons for two seconds to exit
calibration mode.
The amber light blinks twice when the calibration is complete.

Performing Routine Maintenance
Cleaning
Occasionally clean the display panel and cabinet with a soft cloth
dampened (not soaked) with a mild (non-abrasive) glass cleaner. Keep
turning a fresh side of the cloth toward the screen surface to avoid
scratching it with accumulated grit.
Note:
The solvent should be applied only to the cloth, and not
directly on the monitor screen.
Do not use paper products as they may scratch the surface.
To minimize the risk of abrasion, allow the screen to
stand dry.
Special care should be taken when cleaning a touchscreen or
polycarbonate shield that is installed over the screen. Abrasive and
certain chemical cleaners can easily damage the surface.
Note:
Replacing a Line Cord
For best results cleaning a monitor with the optional,
antireflective tempered glass display shield, a solution of
denatured alcohol is recommended to thoroughly clean the
display. Never use alcoholic or ammoniac cleaners to clean
the polycarbonate shield or a touchscreen.
To avoid shock and fire hazards, the monitor’s power cord should be
replaced if the insulation becomes broken or if it develops a loose
internal connection.
ATTENTION: EXPLOSION HAZARD! – Substitution
of components (6185-C) may impair suitability for Class
I, Div. 2 hazardous locations.

Monitor in a Rack
Installing the 6185-C with
Optional Rack Adapters
You can also install the 6185-C into a rack using optional rack adapters.
The rack adapters are designed for installation in a rack cabinet that
conforms to EIA standards for equipment with 19" (483 mm) wide
panels. The rack adapters option is Accessory option R.
Tools Needed
You will need the following tools:
• EIA panel mounting hardware
• Phillips screwdriver (medium)
6185-C Monitor Rack Mounting Guidelines
Observe the following precautions when installing this unit in a rack:
• The cabinet must be tall enough to accommodate the monitor's panel
height of eight rack units, 14.00" (400 mm), and deep enough to
accommodate the monitor's depth while providing rear clearance for
cabling and air flow. A cabinet with depth of 4.4" (112 mm) is
sufficient.
• No slides or shelves are required because the rack mount (6185-C)
monitor is designed to be supported by the panels in which it is
installed.
Publication 6185-5.1
Appendix A: Installing Your Monitor in a Rack

Installing Rack Adapter Brackets on a 6185-C Monitor
1. Carefully remove the monitor from its packaging.
2. Locate four mounting studs on each side of the monitor’s back
enclosure.
3. Install handles onto rack adapter brackets, if required.
4. Install the rack adapter brackets onto the four mounting studs on the
monitor’s back enclosure.
5. Secure the rack adapter brackets with the provided nuts for all eight
mounting studs (4 studs for each rack adapter bracket).
Publication 6185-5.1
40
Bulletin 6185-C and 6185-B Industrial Flat Panel Monitors
Installing a 6185-C Monitor into a Rack
1. Verify that you have eight rack units (14.0”) available to mount your
monitor.
2. Locate holes in the rack mounting rails corresponding to the holes in
the monitor front panel. Install clip nuts behind the holes in the rails
if threaded rails are not provided.
Note:
The mounting rails that run vertically along the inside
edges of the front opening of an EIA rack cabinet can
be of two types:
• “Wide” rails have holes spaced 0.5"(12.7 mm) and
1.25"(31.8 mm) on centers, in a repeating pattern.
Wide rails are prevalent in Europe.
• “Universal” rails have holes spaced 0.5"(12.7 mm),
0.625"(31.8 mm), and 0.625"(31.8 mm) on centers,
in a repeating pattern. Thus, the universal rails have
a hole pattern that contains the wide pattern but
provides an additional hole at the midpoint of the
pattern. Universal rails are most prevalent in the US.
3. Install the monitor into the cabinet from the front.
4. Secure the monitor chassis to the cabinet by installing panelmounting screws through the holes in the monitor’s front panel and
into the rails behind.

Appendix C: Touchscreen Serial
Interface
Description
All touch controllers are configured by default to provide serial
communications at 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity.
For Allen-Bradley monitors equipped with touchscreens, a serial
communications cable is required. A suitable cable can be obtained from
Rockwell Automation or you can create one. The cable is a straightwired serial (RS-232) cable with a male DE-9 D-shell connector on the
monitor end.
The cable provides a communications channel between the touchscreen
controller, which is mounted inside the monitor, and an RS-232-C serial
port on the host computer. Because the touch controller obtains power
from the monitor's power supply, no external touch power connections
are necessary.
Software supplied with the touchscreen must be loaded on the host
computer to handle communications with the touch controller over the
channel.
Because the touchscreen emulates a mouse, there may be compatibility
issues involving how the touchscreen emulates mouse buttons, especially
multiple buttons. For a complete discussion of these issues and how to
troubleshoot them, refer to the touchscreen documentation.
Setting Up the
Touchscreen Interface
This section describes how to set up the touchscreen system. Setup
involves the following:
• Enabling the touchscreen interface
• Installing the software on the host computer that will handle
communications with the touchscreen controller
• Performing a calibration
Publication 6185-5.1
47
Appendix C: Touchscreen Serial Interface
Enabling the Touchscreen Interface
The 6185-C and 6185-B monitors provide a female DE-9 connector on

Installing the Touchscreen Driver Software
To install the touchscreen driver software correctly, obtain the following
information about the host hardware:
• The COM port in use for the touchscreen. Ensure that the RS-232
cable is properly installed between the monitor port and the host’s
COM port.
• The baud rate at which the controller is operating. You will need to
match the baud rate at the COM port. The controller baud rate is
factory set at 9600.
Note:
If you are using older touchscreen software, you may be
prompted for the type of touchscreen controller being used.
The 6185-C and 6185-B monitors use the following
controllers:
• Resistive: Elo TouchSystems model E271-2210.
• Capacitive: MicroTouch model SMT-3.
Once you have obtained this information, install the software using the
installation disks found in the touchscreen accessory package.
