using the Crestron programming tools Crestron Application Builder™
(AppBuilder) and SIMPL Windows. These tools are intended for users
with different levels of programming knowledge. The flexibility of each
16 • Ethernet Card for TPS/Tilt Panel: TPS-ENET
Operations & Installation Guide - DOC. 6016
Crestron TPS-ENET
Ethernet Card for TPS/Tilt Panel
tool is proportional to the degree of programming expertise (i.e., the more
flexible, the more a programmer needs to know and account for). Of
course, one can initiate programming using the easiest method (Crestron
AppBuilder) and use advanced techniques that are available from SIMPL
Windows to customize the job.
The following are recommended software version requirements for the
PC:
• SIMPL Windows version 2.01.06 or later. Requires SIMPL+
Cross Compiler version 1.1.
• Crestron Database version 15.7.4 or later.
• Application Builder version 1.0.17 or later. Requires SIMPL
Windows.
Programming with the Crestron AppBuilder
The easiest
method of
programming,
but does not
offer as much
flexibility
as SIMPL
Windows.
The Crestron AppBuilder offers automatic programming for such
residential and commercial applications as audio distribution, home
theater, video conferencing, and lighting. The interface of this tool guides
you through a few basic steps for designating rooms and specifying the
control system, touchpanels, devices, and functionality. The Crestron
AppBuilder then programs the system, including all touchpanel projects
and control system logic.
The Crestron AppBuilder is fully integrated with Crestron's suite of
software development tools, including SIMPL Windows, VisionToolsTM
Pro-e (VT Pro-e), Crestron Database, User IR Database, and User
Modules Directory.
The Crestron AppBuilder accesses these tools behind the scenes,
enabling you to easily create robust systems.
NOTE: While the touchpanel can be used to control any device in your
system, Application Builder provides specialized templates for the Audio
Distribution and Audio/Video Distribution plug-ins. To take advantage of
this built-in functionality, make sure you check the appropriate plug-in
check box when adding these interfaces to your AppBuilder project.
