DOC # SW000027-B (Preliminary) August 13, 1998 SmartSet Technical Reference Manual—Addendum for the E281-2310 Controller 2 Serial Controller Installation This section assumes you are integrating the E281-2310 serial controller board into your system as a component. The following information gives you mounting dimensions, touchscreen connections, power connections and requirements, and data output connections. It is your responsibility to determine how best to mount the controller and data connector in the display or separate enclosure, and provide a power supply. Mounting the Controller and Connecting Chassis Ground The mounting dimensions for the E281-2310 controller are shown in Figure 1, page 1. Remember that the cable headers will increase the space required. The mounting holes fit common 0.156 inch plastic snap-in standoffs. A chassis ground connection is required through one of the plated through mounting holes (PTH) or P4 pin 8 to provide adequate shielding for the touchscreen cable. Conductive mounting hardware can provide a chassis ground connection for the controller. Serial Controller Connections Power Connections The E281-2310 controller operates on a single voltage, positive with respect to ground. See page 10 for power requirements. Connect a power cable harness to P4 on the controller, a 2x5 header with pins on 0.100" centers. Use a ribbon cable with an IDC connector or crimp-to-wire pin receptacles. An acceptable plug can be selected from Molex series 70450, Amp AMPMODU Mod. IV product line, or Berg mini-latch housing with Mini-PV pins. Connect a power supply to the harness and then to AC. 9 7 5 3 1 · · · · · X · · · · 10 8 6 4 2 Figure 2.

N/C CAUTION Observe polarity when connecting the power leads to the power supply. Reversing polarity may damage the controller. Serial Connections The E281-2310 controller operates at standard RS232C levels. The serial port connector, P2, is a 2x5 header with pins on 0.100" centers. It is configured so a ribbon cable and commonly available insulation displacement connectors (IDCs) may be used. 7 5 3 1 · · · · · · · · · X 9 10 8 6 4 2 Figure 3.

For two-way communications, the controller Receive Data (P2 pin 5) should also be connected to the host Transmit Data pin. Data Set Ready (DSR) and Clear to Send (CTS) may be used by the host to verify controller connections and operation. DSR is asserted when power is applied to the controller and CTS is asserted when the controller's power-on sequence is complete. Data Terminal Ready (DTR) and Request to Send (RTS) can also be connected for full hardware handshaking. Elo driver software typically requires two-way communication (unless ELODEV’s -p- flag is used), and all four handshaking lines. If you are installing the controller inside a display, we recommend that you make a cable that connects P2 to a DB9 female connector mounted on the back of the display, or use Elo's serial cable P/N 012138. (Male connectors are used on TouchMonitors with external controllers.) The shell of this connector should be tied to chassis ground. Use an additional cable from the back of the display to your serial port. Elo can provide suitable adapters and cabling. See the IntelliTouch Product Manual for details. Touchscreen Connections A round multi-conductor cable terminated in a 2x6 female connector is attached to the IntelliTouch touchscreen. One of the following cabling options normally applies: • If the controller will be located inside the display, the touchscreen cable connects directly to the 2x6 header at P3 on the controller (see Figure 1, page 1). SmartSet Technical Reference Manual—Addendum for the E281-2310 Controller • 5 If the controller will be external to the display, the touchscreen cable should be terminated at the back of the display with a DB9 male connector. Use Elo's IC1 adapter cable (P/N 012226). Then connect a cable from the DB9 male connector to the controller using Elo's cable P/N 002863-6-2 with the Elo 002861-2-12 adapter. Unlike the serial cable, the touchscreen cables have a special construction. Use only Elo Touchscreen cables and adapters. 2 4 6 8 10 12 · · · · · · · X · · X · 1 3 5 7 9 11 Figure 4. P3 Touchscreen Connector Pin Positions, End View Diagnostic LEDs The E281-2310 controller has one green diagnostic LED. Following power on, the controller performs a short self-test, where the LED stays lit. After the self-test, the LED flashes once per second, indicating normal operation. The self-test results are displayed by most Elo driver software. During normal operation, the LED also indicates controller/host communication is in progress. When the touchscreen is touched, the LED should light continuously, then return to the normal flash rate. If the host does not remove the packet from the controller, the LED will stay lit. The LED will also stay lit without a touch if the touchscreen or cabling is disconnected or not functioning. If the LED flashes about two times per second, a warning error condition is indicated, such as improper communication from the host. Suspect an invalid command sequence from the host. Remote LED Capability The microprocessor pin that drives the status LED is connected to pin 5 of the P4 power supply connector. This signal from the microprocessor may also be used to drive an external indicator such as another LED. To operate an external LED, connect the LED anode to a +5 Vdc power supply and the cathode to pin 5 of the P4 connector. (Nominal current through the LED will be 3 mA—the LED will be comparatively dim.)

If the number of times that a coordinate repeats in X, Y, and Z exceeds this value, then the controller relearns the touchscreen waveform. This parameter determines the tolerance of contaminants on the touchscreen. The factory default value is 2432, which is about 25 seconds. The Ofs byte specifies the amount (0-255) of surface wave energy absorption that is recognized as a touch. A small value increases touch sensitivity. A large value increases noise rejection. The factory default value is 2. The MinLen byte specifies the minimum width of a touch (0-255). As with the previous argument, a small value increases the sensitivity and a large value increases noise rejection. The factory default is 2. The MaxLen byte specifies the maximum width of a touch (0-255). This parameter controls the rejection of multiple touches and splattered contaminants. The factory default is 22. page 91 Not supported. page 92 Not supported.
