Identity Codes The ST-1700C touchpanel uses two distinct types of identity codes: Cresnet identity (NET ID), and RF ID. These codes are assigned to the touchpanel from the Interface Submenu when the unit is configured. Refer to “Setup Menu” on page 7. For the touchpanel to be identified within the Cresnet system, these assignments must match assignments made in the SIMPL™ Windows® program. NET ID Every equipment and user interface within the Cresnet system requires a unique NET ID. The NET ID is a two-digit hexadecimal number that can range from 03 to FE. The NET ID of the unit must match the NET ID specified in the SIMPL Windows program. The NET ID is used when the touchpanel is wired directly to the control system during uploading a VisionTools™ Pro-e (VT Pro-e) project or upgrading the touchpanel firmware. RF ID Every ST-1700C touchpanel communicating with a Cresnet control system via a CNRFGWA requires a unique RF ID to secure RF communications. There are 15 useable codes for multiple touchpanel(s) ranging from 01 to 0F (hexadecimal number). The RF ID of the unit must match the RF ID specified in the SIMPL Windows program. NOTE: Do not set the RF ID to “00”; it is not supported in SIMPL Windows. 6 • 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel: ST-1700C Operations Guide – DOC. 6050 Crestron ST-1700C 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel Configuring the Touchpanel MAIN MENU To configure the unit, it may be necessary to access a series of setup screens prior to viewing run-time screens that are loaded into the touchpanel for normal operation.

Have a comment about Crestron software? Direct software related suggestions and/or complaints to Crestron via email (email@example.com). Do not forward any queries to this address. Instead refer to “Further Inquiries” on page 31 for assistance. You can create a program that allows you to set up the ST-1700C to operate a Crestron control system 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 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. VT Pro-e is a Windows compatible software package for creating Crestron touchpanel screen designs. Refer to “Programming with VisionTools™ Pro-e” on page 22 for additional details regarding VT Pro-e. The following are recommended software version requirements for the PC: • SIMPL Windows version 2.02.11 or later. Requires SIMPL+ Cross Compiler version 1.1. • Crestron Database version 15.7.5 or later. • Application Builder version 1.1.6 or later. Requires SIMPL Windows. • VisionTools Pro-e version 188.8.131.52 or later. Used for graphical touchscreen design. 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, 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. Programming with SIMPL™ Windows NOTE: The following assumes that the reader has knowledge of SIMPL Windows. If not, refer to the extensive help information provided with the software. NOTE: In the following description, the PRO2 control system is used. SIMPL Windows is Crestron's software for programming Crestron control systems. It provides a well-designed graphical environment with a number of workspaces (i.e., windows) in which a programmer can select, configure, program, test, and monitor a Crestron control system. SIMPL Windows offers drag and drop functionality in a familiar Windows® environment. This section describes a sample SIMPL Windows program that includes a touchpanel. 18 • 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel: ST-1700C Operations Guide – DOC. 6050 Crestron ST-1700C 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel Configuration Manager is where programmers “build” a Crestron control system by selecting hardware from the Device Library. In Configuration Manager, drag the PRO2 from the Control Systems folder of the Device Library and drop it in the upper pane of the System Views. The PRO2 with its associated communication ports is displayed in the System Views upper pane. PRO2 System View The System Views lower pane displays the PRO2 system tree. This tree can be expanded to display and configure the communications ports. Expanded PRO2 System Tree C2Net-Device Slot in Configuration Manager To incorporate a wireless RF touchpanel into the system, a gateway device is required. The C2Net-Device Slot can accept a gateway such as the CNRFGWA. Once a gateway is configured in a C2Net-Device Slot, the slot allows Cresnet communication between the touchpanel and the control system. In Configuration Manager, drag the CNRFGWA gateway from the Wireless Receivers (RF) folder of the Device Library. The System Views upper pane displays the CNRFGWA device icon below the PRO2 graphic. NOTE: An ST-CP control processor is automatically configured with a CNRFGWA in its STCP-Net Device Slot 3, with a fixed NET ID of 2, when the ST-CP is dragged into the upper pane of System Views. Drag the ST-1700C from the Touchpanels (Wireless | Wireless one way) folder of the Device Library and drop it on the CNRFGWA symbol in System Views. The PRO2 system tree displays the CNRFGWA gateway in Slot 9, with a default NET ID of 24. The CNRFGWA displays the touchpanel at the touchpanel’s default RF ID location, “10,” as shown in the following illustration.

This window displays CNRFGWA device information. Select the Net ID tab to change the gateway Net ID, as shown in the following figure. “Device Settings” Window for the CNRFGWA NOTE: Recall that if the CNRFGWA is part of an ST-CP configuration, its NET ID is fixed at 02 and cannot be changed. Similarly, expand the system tree in the lower pane and double-click the ST-1700C icon to open the “Device Settings” window for the touchpanel. Select the RF/IR ID tab to change the touchpanel RF ID, as shown in the following figure. For more information on setting the RF/IR ID, see “Select Interface on page 8. NOTE: The hardware and software settings of the RF ID must match. Although the device setting window in SIMPL Windows allows choices through the range of twodigit Hexadecimal numbers from 01 through FE, the RF ID setting for the hardware is limited to numbers in increments of the most significant digit (i.e., 00, 10, 20). Since 00 is not a valid selection in SIMPL Windows, the RF ID number is limited to the fifteen numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, . . .F0. 20 • 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel: ST-1700C Operations Guide – DOC. 6050 Crestron ST-1700C 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel Touchpanel “Device Settings” Window ST-1700C Symbol in Programming Manager Programming Manager is where programmers “program” a Creston control system by assigning signals to symbols.

A set of pages, which make up a project, can be designed for each application. Each touchpanel can be organized with the ideal, color-oriented control environment with custom control graphics: icons, two and three-dimensional buttons, and floor plans. The project is uploaded to the touchpanel’s flash PROM. The touchpanel uses the project until another is uploaded from the PC. The PC may be disconnected from the control processor except when uploading a project. For additional software information, refer to the help file provided with the software. The latest version of VT Pro-e can be obtained from the Downloads | Software Updates section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com). Virtual Feedback Programming a one-way RF touchpanel such as the ST-1700C requires consideration of “feedback." Since the panels are one-way only, and there is no true feedback, you must create "virtual feedback" so that buttons respond appropriately when pressed and the user perceives no real difference between a one-way panel and a two-way panel. The Application Builder takes care of all of this for you, as did its predecessor, the SmarTouch Pro Editor. However, if you are programming your panels with SIMPL Windows and VT Pro-e, you must follow the procedure described below to add logic both to the touchpanel for button feedback and to the control system program to properly process the signals, and to make sure that the state of the buttons on the panel and in the control system remain in sync. Button press feedback produces a change in appearance from the inactive state to the active state, or vice versa, as defined in the program. • Momentary feedback, from inactive to active and back to inactive, has a short duration, lasting only as long as the button is pressed. • Toggle feedback produces a change of state each time the button is pressed. • With Interlock feedback, only one button in an assigned interlock group can be active at a time. Pressing an inactive button changes its state to active, and forces the other buttons in the group to inactive. (To clear all buttons in the interlock group requires that an extra button be added whose sole purpose is to force all the others to the inactive state.) • Duration feedback is assigned to a button that is to be activated and remain active for a specified period of time, and then return to the inactive state. In the following paragraphs, each feedback type will be discussed in detail as applicable. VT Pro-e Procedures Buttons requiring feedback need to have the feedback type assigned as if it were a property of the object. Button feedback logic is classified as momentary, toggle, interlock, or duration. Logic is added to the buttons on the panel (after join numbers and other properties have been assigned), by right-clicking the button in VT Pro-e and selecting Feedback, which displays the “Feedback” window. 22 • 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel: ST-1700C Operations Guide – DOC. 6050 Crestron ST-1700C 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel “Feedback” Window NOTE: When the Feedback window is open, you can click on any of the buttons on the page and view their various feedback properties. Interlock An interlock consists of a number of assigned buttons grouped together so that button selection is mutually exclusive within the group. This is an important feature when you wish to guarantee that button selection can only be made when all the other buttons of the group are or will be forced inactive. For example, three sources (CD, VCR, tape deck) are controlled and designed within an interlock. This ensures that if CD is chosen, all other sources are inactive. To create the interlock group, right-click on one of the buttons to be in the group, and select Feedback to display the “Feedback” window. Select Interlock as the feedback type. The window changes to show any existing interlock group(s), and includes a Groups button. “Feedback” Window Operations Guide – DOC. 6050 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel: ST-1700C • 23 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel Crestron ST-1700C Use the drop down Interlock Group: field to select an existing group, or click on Groups to open the “Edit Interlock” window, which allows you to edit the existing groups or create a new group. “Edit Interlock” Window Select New to create a new interlock group. Select Edit if you wish to modify an existing group. In either case, the “Create Interlock” window appears. “Create Interlock” Window For new interlock groups, move the cursor over each button to be added and left-click to select it. (Notice that the cursor assumes the pointing hand shape when it is over the page.) If a button is inadvertently placed in the “Buttons:” field, highlight the button and select Delete to remove it from the group. Select OK to confirm and save the interlock group. To edit an existing interlock group, select the group in the “Edit Interlock” window and click Edit to open the “Create Interlock” window. Add or delete buttons as needed. Duration A button defined with duration feedback will remain active for a fixed time period as defined in the Duration field. The purpose of a duration feedback is to simulate a function in the SIMPL Windows program that must remain active for a certain amount of time, such as closing drapes or lowering a screen. Right-click on the desired button, and select Feedback. In the “Feedback” window, select Duration as the feedback type, and enter the desired duration in seconds. Sequence Groups A sequence group consists of a number of assigned buttons that are activated as a group as a result of a single button press. When the first button is activated, the other 24 • 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel: ST-1700C Operations Guide – DOC. 6050 Crestron ST-1700C 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel buttons are activated either sequentially, when one or more of the buttons is defined as having duration feedback, or simultaneously if no durations are included in the group. This is an important feature when one wishes to guarantee that a single selection can activate a number of functions. For example, one can unify the following functions: draw shades closed, dim lights, and start projector. This ensures that when this sequence group is activated, all functions of the collective unit are activated together. Starting from an open page, select (or create) the button that is to activate the group, right click and select Feedback. In the “Feedback” window, select Duration as the feedback type, and enter the desired Duration in seconds. In the Button Action area Joins field, scroll to the desired button joins and click the Add Step button. As each one is added, “Simulate Button xx” appears in the Sequence Group list. When all the desired joins have been added, click Close to accept the entries and close the “Feedback” window. (Refer to the following figure.) “Feedback” Window VT Pro-e always generates the proper virtual feedback logic and appends it to the compiled VT Pro-e file for upload to the panel. However, you must add similar logic to the control system via SIMPL Windows. SIMPL Windows Procedures Momentary Feedback Momentary feedback is when the button feedback state is active as long as the button is pressed and inactive when it is not being pressed. Momentary feedback does not require anything special in the SIMPL Windows program. You simply connect the signal from the appropriate touchpanel join number to the logic in the program (to the feedback of the same digital press). Interlock Feedback Interlock feedback is when the feedback of only one button in a group may be active at any one time. Pressing a button causes its feedback to go high and the feedback of all other buttons to become inactive, or low, as shown in the figure following this paragraph. In this example, join numbers 7 – 10 are in an interlock group; join 7 is pressed, causing join 8, initially high, to go low and join7 to go hi. The one-way touchpanels transmit only the newly pressed button to the control system. The programmer must add a SIMPL Windows INTERLOCK symbol and connect all of the touchpanel output's join numbers in that interlock group as inputs to the INTERLOCK Operations Guide – DOC. 6050 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel: ST-1700C • 25 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel Crestron ST-1700C symbol. All of the outputs are then used to drive the appropriate logic. Note that the output of the interlock corresponding to the pressed button remains high even after the button is released, until the next button is pressed. INTERLOCK J7 F7 J8 F8 J9 F9 J10 F10 To Controlled Device Toggle Feedback Toggle feedback is when the feedback of a button alternates between active and inactive each time the button is pressed. As in the interlock, the toggle feedback remains high even after the button is released, until the button is pressed again. Because there is no way to communicate the state of the toggle button between the panel and the control system by using that single button, Crestron models a toggle on a one-way panel as a two-button interlock group. The button shown on the panel is the first button. The second button (invisible, Crestron-created, not user-created) is the original button's join number + 500, e.g. 1 and 501, 101 and 601, etc. Since there are only 999 join numbers allowed by Crestron's RF protocol, a toggle button may only have a join number of 499 or below. Be aware that you must not use the toggle join numbers + 500 for other purposes. Crestron recommends that you keep toggle buttons in one numeric range (such as 100-150) and then make sure you don't use anything in the corresponding +500 range (600-750). When the user first presses and releases the toggle button, the panel transmits the join number press and release. The next time the user presses and releases the toggle button, the panel transmits the join number + 500 press and release, and then continues to alternate between them. By this method, Crestron knows that the user is explicitly turning the toggle on or explicitly turning it off, so that the state on the control system and the state on the touchpanel will match. The programmer must place an INTERLOCK symbol in the SIMPL Windows program and connect the join number and the join number + 500 to it. The feedback corresponding to the original join number should be used to drive the logic corresponding to the toggle being turned on, and the feedback corresponding to the join number offset by 500 is used to drive the logic corresponding to the toggle being turned off. See the following figure. INTERLOCK Performing TOGGLE Function J7 F7 J507 F507 Duration Feedback A button defined with duration feedback will remain active for a fixed period of time as programmed in the Duration field. Active duration is d0efined by selecting Duration as the feedback type, and entering a number of seconds in the Duration field. The programmer should add an MV (one-shot) symbol to the SIMPL Windows program, with the appropriate time parameter, as shown in the following figure. 26 • 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel: ST-1700C Operations Guide – DOC. 6050 Crestron ST-1700C 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel MV J7 one-shot trig out 25s F7 pulse_time Sequence Groups In addition to button feedback, programmers can specify that a single button perform a sequence of operations. The sequence can press other buttons and these buttons may have durations to introduce delays. The virtual feedback generated by VT Pro-e to the one-way panel will approximate as closely as possible the SIMPL Windows program of multi button press feedback generated from a single button press sequence, but the only information that is actually transmitted to the control system is the join number of the button that specifies the sequence. On the touchpanel, if timing is specified in the sequence, the button that specifies the sequence will appear active for the whole sequence; the other buttons in the sequence will go active in the order and for the duration specified in the sequence; if no timing is specified, the other buttons will go active simultaneously. The programmer must duplicate the actual logic, including all button presses, functions and durations, on the control system. Normally, the programmer uses a STEPPER symbol in SIMPL Windows, with the input driven by the join number that initiates the sequence. As shown in the following figure, each output of the STEPPER drives the logic for the next step in the sequence with the appropriate duration and delay as the corresponding parameters. STEPPER J7 delay duration delay duration delay duration To Each Step of the Sequence delay duration Operations Guide – DOC. 6050 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel: ST-1700C • 27 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel Crestron ST-1700C “Quick” Pushbuttons Pushbutton Layout and Join Number Assignment 1 6 2 7 3 8 4 9 5 10 CRESTRON The touchpanel includes ten “quick” pushbuttons, five on each side of the LCD screen. These buttons are used to access any frequently used commands. Each button has a permanently fixed digital join number. The sequence of digital join numbers is (top to bottom) 1 through 5 on the left side and 6 through 10 on the right side. The default feedback definition for these joins is “momentary.” NOTE: A user may not want the LCD screen to come on after a pushbutton is pressed when the unit is off. The Startup Preference option allows the user to select whether the panel’s display comes on or stays off after a pushbutton is pressed. For more information, refer to “Startup Preference” on page 9 for details. NOTE: Assuming that the touchpanel is powered down, pressing a “quick” pushbutton once “wakes up” the touchpanel but no command is sent. A second button press sends the command. However, if the touchpanel is actually in standby mode, the panel is “awake” and the initial button press sends the command. NOTE: If you wish to change the feedback definition for one of these buttons, create another button on a page, assign the digital join, and set the definition as desired (e.g., toggle, interlock, etc.). Use SIMPL Windows to assign the join numbers to specific functions (e.g., power, volume). The buttons can be used to accomplish screen changes (page flips) by assigning the join numbers to the desired pages using Page Properties in VT Pro-e. Refer also to “Virtual Feedback” on Page 22. NOTE: In versions of VT Pro-e prior to 2.5, if you wish to use “quick” pushbuttons 1-10, you must make a new page and draw buttons with join numbers 1-10. 28 • 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel: ST-1700C Operations Guide – DOC. 6050 Crestron ST-1700C 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel Reserved Join Numbers A reserved join number is a feature of the software that enables a designer to create a button that completes a predetermined function (e.g., calls up the Preferences Menu, adjusts brightness, etc.).
