Safety Precautions
Warning!
Always completely disconnect the power cord from
your chassis whenever you work with the hardware. Do not
make connections while the power is on. Sensitive
electronic components can be damaged by sudden power
surges. Only experienced electronics personnel should
open the PC chassis.
Caution!
Always ground yourself to remove any static charge
before touching the CPU card. Modern electronic devices
are very sensitive to static electric charges. As a safety
precaution, use a grounding wrist strap at all times. Place all
electronic components in a static-dissipative surface or
static-shielded bag when they are not in the chassis.

Chapter 3 Touch Driver Installation
3-1 Introduction
The PPC supports three kinds of Touch Panel Solutions: ELO AccuTouch
touch-screen, ELO Infrared touch-screen and Premier Touch system. All of the
touch-screen consists of a touch-screen and an electronic touch-screen
controller.
The G-WIN Rugged Series Panel PC’s touch device is used RS232
interface touch controller card via the COM3 port inside Panel PC. When the
touch driver installed either for ELO or Premier Touch systems, it will detect
COM3 port automatically.
The ELO AccuTouch and Premier touch-screen are based on patented
resistive technology. The touch-screen may be a flat, spherical, or cylindrical. It
is installed over the face of the display. Since its shape matches of the display
face, the touch-screen has excellent clarity and minimal parallax.
The ELO CarrollTouch infrared (IR) technology uses a small frame around
the display with LEDs and photoreceptors on opposite sides, hidden behind an
IR-transparent bezel. The Controller sequentially pulses the LEDs to create a
grid of IR beams. A touch obstructs one or more the beams which identify the
X and Y coordinates. CarrollTouch technology combines superior optical
performance with excellent gasket-sealing capabilities, so it's an excellent
choice for harsh industrial and outdoor kiosk applications. Touched with a
finger, gloved hand, fingernail, or stylus, it delivers a fast, accurate response
every time.

KNOWN ISSUES
1. There might be some image noises displayed at the time of PC boot and
Windows start up.
2. When use an “external display” as CRT or LCD for external mode (Panel &
CRT), the resolution of external display may be recommended equal to the
CMOS setting for panel [Flat Panel Type]. If the external display is lower
resolution than CMOS setting in Windows, it may cause display indistinct.
Recommendation in CMOS setting:
i.
Choose “CRT” only when use external display.
ii.
Choose “Panel” only when use internal panel display.
3. If customers need to use USB-HDD or USB-CDROM for booting an
operating system at start-up time, and we recommend to disable the “Quick
Power On Self Test” function in CMOS setting
G-WIN AMD Rugged Series Panel PC User Guide

NOTICES
1. The Operation Systems we currently support are Windows XP and XP
Embedded. When installing driver, please make sure you’re using Windows
XP Service Package 2.
2. The VGA output port for A831 is only for displaying the same images as
built-in display. The extended mode is not available for A831.
3. When you use CF card as storage of Operation System, you need to use
“Fixed Disk Mode” type Compact Flash Card instead of removable disk
mode.
4. The internal Compact Flash socket is NOT A PLUG & PLAY DEVICE;
you may remove the CF card only at POWER-OFF status.
