Introducing the Radiant Model P1520 POS Terminal
The Radiant P1520 Point-of-Sale is the newest member in the Radiant
Systems family of open retail platforms. The terminal utilizes Intel’s
Mobile Technology which combines a Pentium M or Celeron M
processor, 852GM chipset, and optional PRO/Wireless card. The
highly efficient Pentium M or Celeron M processor equates to greater
performance than a standard Pentium 4 design, but with lower power
consumption for a more reliable design.
Open Platform Highlights
o Standard Intel Architecture
o Industry standard storage (hard drive or CF Card), DDR
memory, PCI and Mini-PCI expansion slots, and USB/RS232
connectivity
o Multiple operating systems including Windows XP or XPEmbedded
o OPOS drivers available
The countertop enclosure provides many benefits, including a small footprint and multiple mounting options.
The cable management system provides for ease of installation, controlled access to connectors, and concealed
cable routing for better reliability. This all-in-one solution provides very tight integration of core point-of-sale
hardware including a touch screen, magnetic stripe reader, and much more.
This package includes a 15” active matrix, color, 1024X768 main display with a resistive or capacitive touch
screen. The 15” display is a 56% increase in surface area over the 12” models which allows for faster
transactions due to less toggling between application screens, more application design flexibility, and better
resolution. The bright active matrix screen provides the best possible display quality, with excellent contrast
and brightness. Additionally, the P1520 provides the very best in retail multimedia, including full motion video.
The resistive touch screen provides a very durable, accurate, and fast touch interface even with a gloved hand or
stylus. Alternatively, the capacitive touch screen offers a highly durable, accurate, and fast touch interface for
applications that do not require gloved or stylus input.
The P1520 also has more powered serial ports than most alternative POS terminals including six RS232, four
USB, and two dedicated cash drawer ports. This provides expansion capabilities if new devices/peripherals
need to be supported without having to buy an add-on expander. Also, the powered serial ports eliminate the
need for power bricks, thereby reducing another point of potential failure.
The retail hardened design offers a spill resistant, high impact enclosure that is built to withstand tough instore conditions with continuous operation. Eliminating the active CPU fan increases reliability by preventing
forced air through the unit, thereby reducing contaminants in the system. The P1520 can be configured as a
silent, thin-client, fanless, solid-state terminal for maximum reliability.
The P1520 supports multiple operating systems including Windows XP Professional and XP Embedded. The
P1520 provides full support for TCP/IP networking on a 10BaseT or 100 BaseT Ethernet network and it has full
support for a wireless network (optional). Upgradeability and expandability are fundamental to the P1520 and
it offers a field replaceable MSR and power supply, upgradeable RAM and storage, and expansion through the
low-profile PCI and mini-PCI slot. High performance, high connectivity, and openness and are the key benefits
of the P1520.

uses a low-profile riser (3.3V) in combination with a low-profile PCI card (3.3V or Universal card). For more
information, contact Radiant or reference http://www.pcisig.org.
¾
Typically, Radiant will install the riser and specific PCI card at manufacturing since it is connected directly
to the motherboard. It is not recommended to install a card in the field.

Storage
The P1520 can be configured with USB Disk on Chip (uDOC), Compact Flash, or 3.5” Hard Disk Drive
storage.
Hard Drive Storage
NOTE: Unplug the terminal before opening the back panel door.
You can access the hard drive on the P1520 located on the top panel. See picture 2-2 for a visual
reference of the slots’ location.
Compact Flash Storage
NOTE: Unplug the terminal before opening the back panel door.
You can access the compact flash slot located on the top panel. See picture 2-2 for a visual reference
of the slots’ location. The compact flash slot will only support storage media cards since it is an IDE
interface.
uDOC Storage
A qualified technician is needed to access the uDOC on the P1520 as it is an internal component on the
motherboard and requires disassembly of the front bezel.

Using the P1520
The P1520 platform functions as a POS terminal for your business. Performance and functionality will differ
according to the operating system, software, and peripheral devices you install.
Starting Up the P1520
In order to run your operating system and access your software and data, you must start up the P1520 platform.
To start up the P1520, complete the following step:
¾
Simply plug the power cord into an electrical outlet. The system automatically turns on once plugged into
the outlet.
NOTE: Depending on your installed operating system and your selected settings, your system will vary in
the amount of time it takes to boot up.
Shutting Down the P1520
It is highly recommended to properly shut down the P1520 to avoid operating system corruption due to hard
power loss. To shut down the P1520, complete the following steps:
1.
If using a software application, typically there is a software shutdown button in the manager’s setup screen
which should be used to properly shut down the terminal. If a shutdown button does not exist, then exist
Version 1.2

P1520 User Guide
the application to the operating system and shut down gracefully through the operating system (see #2
below)
2.
Properly shut down your operating system. For Windows operating systems (XP-Embedded and XPProfessional), you can do this by selecting Shut Down from the Start menu.
NOTE: The above steps may vary depending on your installed operating system and software application.
3.
If proper shutdown through the software application or operating system is not achievable. Then, press the
“On/Off” button located on the I/O connectivity panel at the bottom P1520. This will create an operating
system shutdown.
4.
If none of the options above are responding or simple not available, then unplug the terminal from the
outlet. Note: This should be avoided at all times to avoided operating system corruption due to hard power
loss.
Optional Mylar Overlay on the P1520 Resistive Touchscreens
Resistive touch screens wear over time, as do other input devices such as keypads and keyboards. To preserve
the touch screen, Radiant offers a thin, mylar overlay affixed over the touch screen for protection. This overlay
is similar to those used on Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) found in the consumer market for touch screen
protection. The overlay is easily field replaceable and provides an effective way to extend the touch screen life.
The part number is P770F001 for a pack of 4 replacement overlays when the overlay becomes worn or needs
replacement.

Touch Calibration
The P1520 with resistive or capacitive touch screen will already be calibrated before it ships from Radiant
Manufacturing. It should not require a recalibration through the life of the terminal. However, if touch issues
arise, it is recommended that re-calibration be tried first before returning the terminal.
A way to determine if you have resistive or capacitive touch screen is to gently touch the screen with an object
different from a finger. This could be a plastic part of a pen, cardboard, etc. Resistive screens will accept all
input devices including finger or styluses whereas capacitive will just accept finger and/or conductive input
devices. If the plastic part of the pen does not register a touch, the terminal is likely to have a capacitive touch
screen which requires finger input for best results.
Resistive touch screen
For resistive touch screen, Radiant uses 4 point calibration to achieve the best accuracy. The below steps
outline how to re-calibrate the touch screen. Note: Do not use any sharp objects, pens, pencils, or any material
expect a finger to contact touch screen sense it could damage the touch sensing layer.
With a Radiant application, from the managers menu, select calibrate touchscreen.
From the desktop or startup menuÆrunÆtype: tcalib
You can also run the tcalib from the P15xx folder.
See picture below.
\
Additional Touch settings for Resistive
Below are some variables that can be adjusted in the control panel in the P15xx Hardware to help with touch
parameters such as internet browser buttons.
Touch double-click speed settings
Go to Hkey_current_userÆcontrol panelÆmouseÆdoubleclickspeed
The number is the time (in milliseconds) in between clicks to register as a double-click. If it's set
extremely low, you can eliminate double-clicking altogether. For example, at the default value of 500
DoubleClickSpeed you have 1/2 a second to click twice. At 100 DoubleClickSpeed you have 1/10 of a
second, and at 1500 DoubleClickSpeed you have 1 1/2 seconds. The clicks must happen inside the
height and width restrictions, which are in pixels.
Touch drag settings
This changes the size of the area Windows uses to differentiate between a click and a drag. The user
can change the DragWidth and DragHeight to 30 pixels from the default value of 4. This prevents the
'Forbidden' symbol ; from appearing when you try to click buttons that are made with pictures.
Capacitive touch screen

04/02/07
P1520 User Guide
For Capacitive touch screen, Radiant uses calibration to achieve the best accuracy. To re-calibrate, go to
desktop or programsÆ TouchwareÆCalibrate. In addition to calibration, you can adjust touch settings,
curser, etc. from the Touchware interface (see picture below). The capacitive touch screen does not connect to
the touch screen port on the top of the terminal.
Note: The P1520 will already be calibrated before it ships from Radiant Manufacturing. It should not require a
recalibration.
Touch Screen Cleaning
Any standard glass cleaner or water can be used to clean the resistive or capacitive touchscreen. Always spray
the glass cleaner on the cloth or towel and then clean the touchscreen.

P1520 User Guide
The Radiant dvOCD plugs into the secondary video port on the P1550 via the DVI-I connector. The P1550 has
plug and play logic to detect the screen and adjust video parameters when it is attached or detached. When
attached, the windows desktop and the screen in general are extended onto the dvOCD. As shown below, the
dvOCD is virtually to the right of the main screen with an upper left corner at x=1024,y=0 and a size of
320x240.
The Intel video driver will recognize the dvOCD as a 640x480 display. There is currently no fix for this. So
maximizing a window on the dvOCD is not recommended as you will only see a quarter of it. Applications will
need to specifically create their window in and draw only to the 320x240 visible area of this
screen.
Main Screen
dvOCD
Application Programming
Applications can draw to the dvOCD by drawing to its area of the virtual screen. For example, an application
could draw a 50x50 bitmap to x=1124,y=100.
Applications written on top of Radiant's RadIoApi, a Radiant Systems specific application, can also easily write
to the dvOCD. Each Radio video call has a screen number (or device number) parameter. This parameter
should be set to 0 for the main screen and to 1 for the dvOCD.
It is possible during runtime to determine if the dvOCD screen is plugged in and recognized by querying
Windows for the screen size. The Win32 function for doing this is prototyped below along with 4 pertinent
values for nIndex. Querying for SM_CXSCREEN and SM_CYSCREEN will return the size of the Main
screen. Querying SM_CXVIRTUALSCREEN and SM_CYVIRTUALSCREEN will return the entire size of all
the combined screens. So if GetSystemMetrics reports the virtual screen is larger than the screen, there is a
dvOCD attached and configured. Otherwise, there is not.
int GetSystemMetrics( int nIndex );
nIndex values: SM_CXSCREEN, SM_CYSCREEN, SM_CXVIRTUALSCREEN,
SM_CYVIRTUALSCREEN
Sample Applications
Radiant provides two sample programs for displaying content on the dvOCD. The first, BBDemo.exe, will play
a motion video file, positioning and resizing it to fill up the dvOCD. It accepts most motion video file formats.
The second, BBSlides.exe, will play a slideshow on the dvOCD. It takes a folder of image files and loops
through them, resizing each to fit on the dvOCD and displaying each for a configurable number of seconds.
Both apps are part of the driver package and should be in the C:\P15xx folder. BBSlides is a recent addition
and may not be on all P1550s.

Appendix: P1520 Troubleshooting Guide
This document provides a checklist of troubleshooting steps to review before replacing a P1520 POS.
Hardware Troubleshooting:
Is the P1520 calibrated correctly?
Re-calibrate through the application managers menu or through the operating system. At command
prompt type tcalib for RESISITIVE touchsreens. See below for capacitive touchscreen
troubleshooting.
Is the touch screen going blank when idle?
This is a critical feature of the P1520. After a period of time (30 minutes or more), the screen will go
blank in a screen saver mode. This helps prolong the bulb life of the LCD. If you touch the screen or
press any key on the keyboard, it should wake up. Do not replace the touchscreen until this has been
checked.
Is there no image after touching the screen?
a.
Check the underside of the touch head. There are network lights that should be on:
Green - "Lnk" - is active and solid with functioning network connection.
Yellow - "Act" - is active if activity (transmit and receive) data is on the network
b.
Check to make sure the unit is plugged in at BOTH the wall and at the bottom of the terminal.
Also, check the power connection from the base to the touch head located at the I/O panel at
the bottom of the touch head.
c.
If there is still no power, trace the power cable from the terminal to the source (usually a
power strip or a battery backup) and verify power there.
d.
If power is good at the source but still not at the touch head, try swapping out the power cable
from another POS. If another power cable provides power, then the cable is the bad part. You
will have to replace the power cable.
e.
If the screen does not come on, check all connections. Reboot the POS. If the screen does
not work at this point, you may have to replace the unit.
f.
If all the above did not work, it is most likely a hardware problem with the touch head or
power supply, and the power supply or entire terminal should be replaced.
Is the Hard Disk Malfunctioning?
If there is a message on the screen indicating hard disk failure, try powering down unit using on/off
button and rebooting. If no response, pull the power cord. If unit doesn’t boot and says hard disk
failure or Unmountable Boot Volume error, you will probably have to replace the unit.
Is the MSR malfunctioning?
Version 1.2
a.
You will need to determine if the application is causing the issue or if it appears to be
hardware problem. To determine if it is hardware, go to C:/P1520/. Search for
MSRWIN.exe. Run this program which will bring up a new window.
b.
Try swiping a known good card and it should display text. MSR cards can have 1, 2, or 3
tracks of data. If it is reading all errors, “EEE” will be displayed. Try a different card to
make sure a bad card is being swiped.
c.
If it continues to display EEE or does not display any information, reboot the terminal via
software or the On/Off button.
30
04/02/07
P1520 User Guide
d.
If that does not resolve the issue, replace the MSR or terminal.
e.
If MSR is just intermittent, try cleaning the MSR by using a card wrapping in a cleaning cloth
with cleaning solution (ie. paper towel sprayed and then wrapped around a card)
Warning! The OS on the P1520 is typically Windows XP. There is a known issue with Windows XP when
cold/hard booting which can make the P1520 inoperable and require replacement due to operating system
corruption. Use the On/Off button on the P1520 BEFORE unplugging the terminal. Only power down or
unplug the P1520 as a last resort.
Are the serial ports working?
Using Hyperterminal to test COM ports on Radiant Systems POS systems. Basic instructions:
1)
Cabling: For Radiant Systems RJ-type ports, you can communicate between ports using any of the
standard RJ cables that ship with our products. These cables have a ‘half-twist’ so that all outbound signals will
automatically be routed to the appropriate inputs on the other side. (RJ ports are the ones using the standard
telecom modular plugs with the locking tabs).
For standard DB-9 ports, a null modem cable must be used. This is a cable that swaps all of the signal pairs
and has a female DB-9 connector on each end. Alternately, if you have a DB-9 to RJ adapter such as CN00322
you can connect a DB-9 port to an RJ-type port or two DB-9 ports together. See RJ_End diagram for details on
pinouts.
Connect two serial ports together
a. For RJ12 ports use a twisted RJ12 cable
b. For DB9 use NULL Modem cable
RJ_End Diagram
2)
Launch HyperTerminal
a. Either launch from Start > Programs > Accessories > Communications >
HyperTerminal or C:\Program Files\Windows NT\hypertrm.exe
b. Configure HyperTerminal with the COM port to test and set the Baud to 115200.
c. Launch two copies of HyperTerminal to communicate between the ports
3)
The program will have several prompts, some will only appear the first time you run the program:
