Industrial 20.1" Flat Panel Monitor Installing the 6185-E Flat Panel Monitor 5 This section describes how to install the monitor. Tools Needed In addition to the tools required to make the cutout, you will need the following tools: • 3/8” Deep Well Socket • 1/4” Drive Extension - 6” or longer • 1/4” Drive Ratchet or 1/4” Drive Torque Ratchet Before Installation When installing the unit, it is important to consider environmental factors at the site that could affect performance as well as possible effects from equipment operation on personnel and nearby equipment. Following the guidelines will help ensure that the monitor will provide 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. A user supplied fan, heat exchanger or air conditioner may be required to meet this condition in some installations. • 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 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. Publication 6185-5.2 6 Industrial 20.1" Flat Panel Monitor • Determine the minimum and maximum ambient humidity for the monitor by consulting the specification sheets at the back of this manual. 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. Panel Mounting When properly installed, the 6185-E Flat Panel Monitor is designed to provide protection against water and dust to NEMA 4 and NEMA 12 standards. No slides or shelves are required because the 6185-E Flat Panel Monitor is designed to be supported by the panels in which it is installed. Figure 1 Generic Panel Mount Diagram Publication 6185-5.2 Industrial 20.1" Flat Panel Monitor 7 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. A cabinet with a minimum depth of 5.12 in. (130 mm) 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 prior to installation. ATTENTION: Failure to follow these warnings may result in personal injury or damage to the panel components.

Connecting AC Power The 6185-E Flat Panel Monitor requires 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 (below the power connector) to establish a chassis-to-earth ground connection. Secure one end of a ground strap to the ground terminal. Connect the other end of the ground strap to a good earth ground. The ground terminal is an M5 screw. 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 rear panel of the monitor. Position the power cord retaining clip attached to the rear panel connector over the cord’s socket to secure it in place. 4. Connect the plug end of the AC power cord to the main outlet. 5. Restore AC power to the outlet. Publication 6185-5.2 Industrial 20.1" Flat Panel Monitor 15 Connecting DC Power The 6185-E Flat Panel Monitor requires 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 of the monitor (below the power connector) to establish a chassis-to-earth ground connection. Secure one end of a ground strap to the ground terminal. Connect the other end of the ground strap to a good earth ground. The ground terminal is an M5 screw. 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. 3. Connect the +VDC wire to the “+V” screw terminal. Connect the VDC wire to the “-V” screw terminal. Connect the power source ground wire to the GND screw terminal. Tighten down the screw terminals. 4. Restore DC power. Publication 6185-5.2 16 Industrial 20.1" Flat Panel Monitor Initial Video Setup The 6185-E Flat Panel Monitor is configured at the factory, but typically requires initial adjustments to ensure the best screen image. Rockwell Automation provides the Flat Panel Monitor Adjustment Utility with each flat panel monitor to assist you in adjusting the monitor settings. Important: Flat panel monitors are fixed resolution devices and work best when set at their native resolution. If you switch the resolution of this monitor from 1280 x 1024 resolution, the display may look distorted. Common Flat Panel Video Adjustments The 6185-E Flat Panel Monitor provides controls to adjust the following aspects of the monitor video display: • Horizontal and vertical position • Horizontal size of the display • Clock phase • Brightness and contrast It is important that you make initial adjustments to these settings to ensure that the screen image on the flat panel monitor is set up correctly. If the horizontal or vertical position of the display is not adjusted correctly, one edge of the screen image extends 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 contains vertical shaded bars. If the clock phase setting is not properly adjusted, the screen image is “jittery.” Figure 7 Monitor Video Adjustments Publication 6185-5.2 Industrial 20.1" Flat Panel Monitor 17 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. Adjusting Settings Use these instructions to adjust the video settings to achieve the best screen image. Note: For more information on the location and operation of the controls on the monitor, refer to Page 19. Step 1 - Start the Adjustment Utility 1. Insert the diskette which was provided with the monitor in the floppy drive of the host computer 2. Start the Flat Panel Monitor Adjustment utility using the instructions on the diskette label. The utility displays an image on the screen to assist you in adjusting the monitor settings. Note: The utility may take several seconds to display the screen image. Step 2 - Access the controls and use the auto-adjust feature 1. Loosen three of the four screws on the access panel on the back of the unit. 2. Slide the access panel to reveal the control panel inside the unit. 3. Press the CLK- and CLK+ simultaneously to enable the auto-adjust feature. The monitor will attempt to adjust the settings properly based on the current signal. This process may take up to 20 seconds, during which time the screen will be dark. 4. Do one of the following: • If the display looks acceptable, go to Step 6. • If the display does not look acceptable, repeat the auto adjust process two or three more times. If the display still does not look acceptable, proceed to the next step. Publication 6185-5.2 18 Industrial 20.1" Flat Panel Monitor Step 3 - Adjust the horizontal size Use the H+ and H- controls to adjust the horizontal size until the vertical shaded bars disappear and the screen image fits the display precisely. Note: The vertical size is fixed and requires no user adjustment. Step 4 - Adjust the horizontal and vertical position 1. Use the H LFT and H RT controls to adjust the horizontal screen position. 2. Use the V UP and V DN controls to adjust the vertical screen position. Step 5 - Adjust the clock phase Use the CLK+ and CLK- controls to adjust the clock phase until the screen image is sharp and there is no screen “jitter.” The change should be most apparent in the vertical lines of the screen. Step 6 - Saving Settings Press SAVE to save the current settings for the current resolution. Note: Publication 6185-5.2 Each resolution can have its own custom settings. You can have different settings at 1280 x 1024, 1024 x 768, 800 x 600, 640 x 480, and 720 x 400 resolution.

Publication 6185-5.2 22 Industrial 20.1" Flat Panel Monitor Dimmer Control The 6185-E is equipped with proprietary display dimming circuitry that allows full range control of image luminance from the front panel. The LEDs are present with or without the dimmer control, but the two buttons that adjust the luminance of the display are optional. Figure 9 Dimmer Control The control buttons adjust the luminance of the image, which is not the same as the 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. 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 down 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. Publication 6185-5.2 Industrial 20.1" Flat Panel Monitor 23 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. Table D Interpreting the Dimmer LED Green LED Amber LED Condition On Off Normal Operation - The monitor is receiving a valid video signal. Off On Signal Not Received - The monitor is not receiving a valid video signal. On (blinking slowly) Off Backlight Off - The monitor is still ON but the backlight is powered OFF. Hold down both buttons for 2 seconds to disable the backlight. Press either button to enable the backlight. On (blinking fast then slow) Off Changing Dimmer Setting - When you are pressing one of the dimmer buttons, the LED blinks fast and slows down as you reach the end of the possible dimmer adjustments in that direction. The light stops blinking when you stop pressing the button, and the amber LED blinks twice when the change has been saved. Once a dimmer setting has been saved, it will be used each time the monitor is powered ON. On On (blinking slowly) Calibration Mode - The monitor has a calibration mode to compensate for abnormal signal levels. Calibration mode is started by holding down both buttons for 8 seconds. To turn off the calibration mode, hold down both buttons for 2 seconds until the amber light is turned OFF. The amber light will blink twice after calibration mode to indicate that the calibration is complete. If you need to adjust the calibration mode, contact Rockwell Automation. These instructions are provided only so you can get out of calibration mode if you get into it accidentally. Publication 6185-5.2 24 Industrial 20.1" Flat Panel Monitor 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. Never use alcoholic or ammoniac cleaners. Replacing a Line Cord 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. Other Maintenance Qualified service personnel should perform all maintenance, except for the power cord replacement described above.

Publication 6185-5.2 Industrial 20.1" Flat Panel Monitor 27 $ SSHQGL[ $ 7RX RXF FKVF KVFU U HHQ 6 6H HULDO ,QWHUIDFH 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 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 using the 6185-E Flat Panel Monitor. 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 Enabling the Touchscreen Interface The 6185-E Flat Panel Monitor provides a female DB-9 connector on the side panel. This connector provides the serial interface for the touch controller.
