Figure 2.3. (The I/O section includes various I/O ports, including serial ports, USB
ports, the Ethernet ports, KB/MS, the audio jacks, and so on.)
2.2 Preparing for First-time Use
Before commencing set up of the panel PC system, the following items should be
available:
 Keyboard
 Mouse (for system software installation)
2.3 Installation Procedures
2.3.1 Connecting the Power Cord
The panel PC can only be powered through an AC electrical outlet (100 ~ 250 volts,
50 ~ 60 Hz). Be sure to handle the power cords by holding the plug ends only. Follow
these procedures in order:
1. Connect the female end of the power cord to the AC inlet of the panel PC.
2. Connect the 3-pin male plug of the power cord to an electrical outlet.
2.3.2 Connecting the Keyboard and Mouse
Connect the PS/2 mouse and keyboard to the I/O section of PPC.
If using a serial mouse and the panel PC has a touchscreen, it is possible to connect
the mouse to any COM port.
2.3.3 Switching on the Power
Switch on the power switch, which is located inside the bottom side cover.
2.4 Running the BIOS Setup Program
The panel PC will be properly set up and configured by the dealer prior to delivery.
However, it may be necessary to use the panel PC's BIOS (Basic Input-Output System) setup program to change the system configuration information, such as the current date and time, or the type of hard drive. The setup program is stored in read-only
memory (ROM). It can be accessed either when you turn on or reset the panel PC, by
pressing the ‘Del’ key on your keyboard immediately after powering on the computer.
The settings specified with the setup program are recorded in a special area of memory called “CMOS RAM”. This memory is backed up by a battery so that it will not be
erased after turning off or resetting the system. Whenever the power is turned on, the
system reads the settings stored in CMOS RAM and compares them to the equipment check conducted during the power on self-test (POST). If a problem occurs, an
error message will be displayed on screen, and the computer prompts the user to run
the setup program.

4.1 Jumpers and Connectors
The panel PC consists of a PC-based computer that is housed in a metal shielding
case with a plastic cover on the rear and bottom. All the computer devices, like the
CPU, HDD, SDRAM, and power supply are all readily accessible after removing the
rear panel or the HDD cover. Any maintenance or hardware upgrades can be easily
completed after removing the rear panel and/or HDD cover.
For information about complete disassembly of the panel PC, refer to Appendix B.
Warning! Do not remove the plastic rear cover until verifying that no power is flowing within the panel PC. Power must be switched off and the power cord
must be unplugged. Each time the panel PC is serviced, users should
be aware of this condition.
4.2 Disassembling the Panel PC
The following are standard procedures for disassembling the panel PC before
upgrading the system. All procedures are illustrated in Figure 4.1, 4.2, 4.3.
1. Unfasten the screws securing the rear plastic cover and remove it.

4.4 Installing the Central Processing Unit (CPU)
The panel PC is equipped with a central processing unit (CPU) that can be upgraded
to improve system performance. The panel PC provides one 478-pin ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) socket, or “Socket 478”. The CPU must be fitted with an appropriate heatsink and CPU fan to prevent overheating.
Warning! The CPU may be damaged if operated without a heat sink, and if the fan
is not connected to the CPU fan power connector.
Caution! Always disconnect the power cord from your panel PC when you are
working on it. Do not make connections while the power is on as sensitive electronic components can be damaged by the sudden rush of
power. Only experienced electronics personnel should open the panel
PC.
Follow these instructions to install a CPU:
1. Place the CPU carefully into the socket, taking care to align it properly.

Jumpers and
Connectors
This chapter gives information on
setting jumpers and using the
connectors on the PPC-157T
motherboard.
Sections include:
 Setting Jumpers
 Jumpers and Connectors locations
 Connectors
5.1 Jumpers and Connectors
This chapter supplies more detailed information about the internal jumper settings
and an outline of the I/O ports available on the PPC-157T.
5.1.1 Setting Jumpers
The Panel PC can be configured to match the needs of each application by setting
the jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of electrical switch. It consists of two metal
pins and a small metal clip (often protected by a plastic cover), which slides over the
pins to close the circuit and connect them. To ”close” a jumper, connect the pins with
the clip. To “open” a jumper, remove the clip. Sometimes a jumper has three pins,
labeled 1, 2, and 3. In this case, it is possible to connect either pins 1 and 2 or pins 2
and 3 to each other.
Open
Closed
Closed 2-3
The jumper settings are schematically depicted in this manual as follows:
1
Open
Closed
2
3
Closed 2-3
A pair of needle-nose pliers may be helpful when working with jumpers. If there are
any doubts about the best hardware configuration for a particular application, contact
the local distributor or sales representative before making any changes.
An arrow is printed on the motherboard to indicate the first pin of each jumper.
PPC-157T User Manual
