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

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.

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.

Publication 6185-5.2
Industrial 20.1" Flat Panel Monitor
13
Connecting the 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 an HD-15 video cable to
connect to the host computer, refer to Appendix B
(Page 30).
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 50 feet in some
cases) may be used, provided they are properly constructed. Your
package may include a six-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:
You may connect the monitor to video generators that
do not conform to VGA standards. The main
requirement is that the generator provide analog RGB
video signals (0.714V above reference black into 75
ohms) and separate horizontal and vertical sync signals.
Connecting the Touchscreen Interface
The serial touchscreen interface connection to the host is made through
an RS-232 DB-9 (female) 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 the manual included with the touchscreen option
and Appendix A of this manual (page 27) 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.
Publication 6185-5.2
14
Industrial 20.1" Flat Panel 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 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.

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

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.

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.

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

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-E uses 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.
