Please observe the described hints in the chapter “Safety
Instructions” and the specification listed in the chapter “Main
Specifications”.
Instruction for Mounting
Please take into account the needed free space on the interface
side, before you install the monitor into an industrial cabinet, an
instrument panel or other cabinets.
You find the description of the interfaces being available in the
section “Interfaces”.
Important Instructions!
KFM15_e has to be installed only by trained and qualified
personal.
Make sure there is sufficient air circulation around the device
when installing the KFM15_e.
The openings for cooling (on upper and bottom side of the device)
must not be obstructed.
When installing KFM15_e into an industrial cabinet, leave at least
5 cm (approx. 2”) of free space around the unit to prevent the
device from possibly overheating!
The 19” industrial cabinet must stand firmly in place.
If further stabilisation is necessary, then bolt the industrial cabinet
to the floor or anchor it on the wall.
The voltage feeds must not be overloaded. Adjust the cabling and
the external overcharge protection to correspond with the
electrical values indicated on the type label.
The type label is located on the left side of the monitor.

Installation Instructions
Panel Mount Version
If you install the panel version of the KFM15_e into an instrument panel or other
cabinet, use the eight threaded studs M4 on the rear side of the front plate.
For the panel assembly, cut a window and eight pre-drill holes according
figure 6. The system must be attached firmly with eight M4 metric nuts. Before
mounting, remove the protective film on the rubber seal at the rear side of the
display front plate. The contact surface with the rubber seal must be clean and
flush.

Monitor Connecting and Turning On
Monitor Connecting and Turning On
The industrial LCD monitor KFM15_e can be connected to IBM PC-systems
equipped with corresponding graphics capability.
1. Connect the PC-system’s video signal-output interface to the video signalinput of the KFM15_e, by use of the supplied video signal cable (depending
on your ordering).
2. If your KFM15_e is equipped with touch screen (COM or USB terminal) you
have to connect the touch screen terminal to the corresponding interface of
the PC system by use of the supplied touch screen cable connector.
3. Connect the power cord as described in the chapter “Power Cord
Connection”.
4. Push the Power On/Off-button to turn on the monitor.
The PC needs to be set to an appropriate graphics mode that
has the same resolution with the LCD panel to have clear screen
image.
The colour representation of the image on each monitor can
differ by physically causes and is dependent on the video signal
source.
If you prefer another colour temperature or want to adapt the
colour representation of images on two monitors, you have to
install these features in the OSD menu under “Color”.
Execute these settings only after reaching of the full operating
temperature of the monitor (approx. 30 minutes).
When the screen is not in use, it must be turned off or the pattern
must be frequently changed by a screen saver.
If it displays the same pattern for a long period of time,
brightness down or “image sticking” may develop due to the
structure of LC-Displays.

Monitor Connecting and Turning On
Calibrating the Touch Screen
After the installing and connecting your KFM15_e monitor and installing the touch
screen, you have to calibrate the touch screen. Calibration serves two purposes:
❏ Sets the active area of the touch screen
❏ Aligns the active area of the touch screen to the screen’s image
Before you calibrate the touch screen, let the monitor warm up
for 30 minutes and then center the screen’s image within the
screen area.
Calibration aligns the active touch-sensitive area of the touch screen with the
image on the display. Calibration also determines the edges of the screen’s image
and locates the center of the touch screen. If the touch screen is not calibrated
properly, the active area of the touch screen may not be aligned with the screen’s
image or may be unnecessarily small in size.
To calibrate the touch screen, open the touch screen control panel program, and
then select “Calibration”. Follow the directions displayd on the screen. Fore more
information on calibration, refer to the user documentation enclosed on the
supplied CD with the touch screen drivers.
Whenever you change the resolution you have to calibrate the
touch screen.
