Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the Centurion tablet
LCD monitor, which allows you to work directly
on the screen and offers an alternative to keyboard and mouse. You can navigate your cursor, and design, paint, draw, write or sign in an
intuitive and natural way by means of Wintime’s
exclusive wireless and pressure sensitive digital pen.
The Centurion tablet LCD monitor provides optimum hand-eye coordination, allowing users
to work with a pen on the screen as easy as on normal paper. This input device is designed
for everybody who wants to creatively and efficiently design, produce documents, and make
presentations. Its versatility makes the Centurion the ultimate tool for graphic and industrial
design, 3D-animation and game design, multimedia, education, database management, and
the production of audio and video.
Wireless and pressure sensitive stylus pen
With a pressure sensitivity of 1024 levels, the digital pen is an ideal tool to intuitively draw or
manipulate digital images, and for shading in sketches. By pressing harder on the tip of the
pen you can effectively create thicker or stronger lines or dose digital paint to create stunning
artwork.
Freely programmable pen buttons
The buttons of the digital pen are freely programmable and you may add or customize their
function according to your own personal preferences (see chapter 4).

Taking care of your tablet LCD monitor
1. Always disconnect the power cord from the Centurion tablet LCD monitor before
making any installation. Make sure both the system and external devices are
turned off, and that the monitor is properly grounded.
2. Turn off the system power before cleaning. Clean the system using a cloth with
some mild detergent only. Do not spray any liquid cleaner directly onto the
screen, but spray the cleaner on a cloth first before wiping the screen.
3. Avoid using other objects than the digital pen to operate the system. Scratches
on the screen may cause malfunction or internal failure to the unit.
4. Do not open or attempt to disassemble the unit, but leave reparations to a qualified technician.
5. The Centurion tablet LCD monitor is fortified with an extra thick case, which
makes it sturdy, but not invulnerable. Don’t put too much weight on the screen.
Troubleshooting
The digital pen doesn’t function.
- Please check the status of the battery
of your digital pen.
- Always connect the Centurion tablet
LCD monitor to the same USB-port as
the one you used during the installation
of the device driver. Not doing so may
cause the digital pen to malfunction. If
you need to connect to a different USBport you must reinstall the driver (see
chapter 2 of this manual).
