Touchpanel: Crestron Isys™
TPS-5000L
Introduction
Features and Functions
The TPS-5000L series packs all the power and performance of an Isys panel in a
stylish lectern or wall-mount model. Its size and capabilities make it perfect for the
conference room and home theater.
These touchpanels are available with two different faceplate colors: black, or white.
The suffixes ‘B’ or ‘W’ respectively denotes color; i.e., TPS-5000LB is a touchpanel
with a black faceplate. For simplicity within this guide, color suffix is omitted.

The TPS-5000L's audio capabilities include stereo audio speakers that offer volume
control, a built-in microphone with line-level output, built-in WAV sound file
capability and line-level input for other audio sources.
The purpose of the TPS-5000L touchpanel is to replace large, complicated hardwired panels in either a Cresnet® system or an RS-232 system with a series of
simpler screens each specific to the control problem at hand. Thus, a very large
number of functions can be made available to the user without the confusion
associated with hardware panels of that complexity. Icons, graphics, and text can
dramatically increase any user's comprehension of the control environment. Devices,
functions, and control zones are quickly organized and more easily accessed.
The TPS-5000L has the ability to transmit touch coordinates when "RS-232 Port for
Touch Output" is selected. Currently Telestrator devices are supported on the
TPS-5000L. Refer to the "RS-232 Menu" section of "Configuring the Touchpanel"
on page 11 and “Appendix C: Configuring the RS-232 Port for Use” on page 48 for
instructions on selecting this feature.

Expansion Slots
The TPS-5000L’s functionality can be expanded by installing optional cards into the
expansion slots. Each card has a specific function and is sold separately. Installation
instructions are provided with each card. The available cards for the TPS-5000L are:
•
TPS-ENETL – a 10/100 BaseT Ethernet card provides Ethernet
capability to the touchpanel.
•
TPS-VIDL-1/TPS-VIDL-2 – a TV video digitizer card that allows
NTSC/PAL video to be played in a window on the touchpanel or full
screen. The TPS-VIDL-2 adds the capability of displaying two
composite video sources.
•
TPS-XVGAL – a RGB digitizer that scan converts a computer source
up to 1600 x 1200 at 85 Hz (110 Hz @ 640 x 480) vertical rate to a
window on the touchpanel or full screen.
NOTE: The three cards are NOT interchangeable and can only be installed in their
dedicated expansion slots.
Memory
The TPS-5000L ships with 4MB of flash and 8MB of DRAM. Additional memory
by Crestron can be purchased separately and installed in the field. Refer to the latest
revision of the Flash Memory for TPS User Interfaces Installation Guide (Doc. 5927)

Industry Compliance
As of the date of manufacture, the touchpanel have been tested and found to comply
with specifications for CE marking and standards per EMC and
Radiocommunications Compliance Labelling (N11785).
NOTE: This device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to
the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference,
and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation.
Setup
Network Wiring
NOTE: When installing network wiring, refer to the latest revision of the wiring
diagram(s) appropriate to your specific system configuration, available from the
Downloads | Product Manuals | Wiring Diagrams section of the Crestron website
(www.crestron.com).
When calculating the wire gauge for a particular Cresnet run, the length of the run
and the power factor of each Cresnet unit to be connected must be taken into
consideration. If Cresnet units are to be daisy-chained on the run, the power factor of
each network unit to be daisy-chained must be added together to determine the
power factor of the entire chain. The length of the run in feet and the power factor of
the run should be used in the following resistance equation to calculate the value on
the right side of the equation.
Resistance Equation
R < 40,000
L x PF
Where: R = Resistance (refer to table below).
L = Length of run (or chain) in feet.
PF = Power factor of entire run (or chain).
The required wire gauge should be chosen such that the resistance value is less than
the value calculated in the resistance equation. Refer to the table after this paragraph.

NOTE: All network wiring must consist of two twisted pairs. One twisted pair is
the +24V conductor and the GND conductor. The other twisted pair is the Y and Z
conductors.
NOTE: When daisy-chaining Cresnet units, strip the ends of the wires carefully to
avoid nicking the conductors. Twist together the ends of the wires that share a pin on
the network connector, and tin the twisted connection. Apply solder only to the ends
of the twisted wires. Avoid tinning too far up the wires or the end becomes brittle.
Insert the tinned connection into the Cresnet connector and tighten the retaining
screw. Repeat the procedure for the other three conductors.
NOTE: For larger networks (i.e., greater than 28 network devices), it may become
necessary to add a Cresnet Hub/Repeater (CNXHUB) to maintain signal quality
throughout the network. Also, for networks with lengthy cable runs, it may be
necessary to add a Hub/Repeater after only 20 devices.
Identity Code
Every equipment and user interface within the network requires a unique Cresnet
identity code (NET ID). These codes are recognized by a two-digit hexadecimal
number ranging from 03 to FE. Refer to “Interface Menu” on page 10 for
instructions on setting the unit's NET ID. The NET ID of the unit must match the
NET ID specified in the SIMPL Windows program. Refer to “Setting the Net ID in
Device Settings” on page 25 for information about changing the ID in a SIMPL
Windows program.
Configuring the Touchpanel
NOTE: The only connection required to configure the touchpanel is power. Refer to
“Hardware Hookup” on page 16 for details.
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.
The MAIN MENU for configuring the touchpanel appears when a finger is held to
the touchscreen as power is applied. Remove your finger when the message “SETUP
MODE” appears on the touchscreen.
NOTE: The SETUP MODE can also be accessed through the Viewport Utility if the
touchpanel is connected directly to a PC.
This menu can also be obtained via
digital reserved join number, 17242.
Upon entering SETUP MODE, the MAIN MENU, shown to the left, displays four
buttons: Touch Screen Calibration, Exit and Run Program, Setup, and
Diagnostics.
The Exit and Run Program button verifies that all of the setup information has
been saved to EEPROM and displays the main page that has been programmed into
your system. The remaining buttons on the MAIN MENU open other menus, which
are discussed in subsequent paragraphs.

the MAIN MENU.
NOTE: When touching the screen during calibration, be as accurate as possible.
Use the tip of a capped pen or the eraser end of a pencil. To cancel calibration and
return to the CALIBRATION MENU without saving calibration data, create a
calibration error by touching the screen in an area that is opposite from the instructed
area.
Setup Menu
SETUP MENU
To access the SETUP MENU, shown to the left, press the Setup button from the
MAIN MENU. The SETUP MENU offers a series of buttons, which opens
additional menus and displays, which are detailed in subsequent paragraphs. Many
touchpanel options (i.e., standby timeout and brightness) are available directly from
the SETUP MENU and are explained in the following paragraphs. Other setup
parameters (i.e., interface, RS-232, audio, RGB, and video) use additional menus
and are detailed in subsequent paragraphs as well. After setup parameters have been
set, select the Return button to return to the MAIN MENU.
NOTE: The current CRESNET ID setting is displayed in the upper left corner of
the SETUP MENU.
NOTE: All touchpanel settings are automatically saved in non-volatile memory.

MENU, can change the brightness level of the display. The current brightness setting
is shown as a percentage in the SETUP MENU (e.g., 99% brightness is shown in the
illustration). Percentage can vary from 0% (low brightness) to 100% (full
brightness). DOWN and UP buttons decrease and increase the brightness,
respectively.
Interface Menu
INTERFACE MENU
The touchpanel communicates with a control system to activate commands or to
display feedback from components within the system. The communication interface
must be correctly specified or communication will not occur. To set communication
parameters select the Interface button located on the SETUP MENU and display the
INTERFACE MENU, shown to the left.
The Cresnet network identity number (CRESNET ID) is displayed on the
INTERFACE MENU. CRESNET ID is the two-digit hexadecimal number. The
hexadecimal number can range from 03 to FE and must correspond to the NET ID
set in the SIMPL Windows program of the Cresnet system. Matching IDs between
touchpanel and SIMPL Windows program is required if data is to be successfully
transferred. NET ID for the TPS-5000L is factory set to 03, and no two devices in
the same system can have the same ID.
Two buttons adjacent to the hexadecimal display, UP and DOWN, increase and
decrease the CRESNET ID by one, respectively.
The touchpanel usually communicates with a Cresnet system. Occasionally the
touchpanel can be used in a demo mode where it merely displays various menus, but
does not communicate with a Cresnet system. In demo mode, the directory buttons
change pages, but buttons requiring feedback do not work. Two side-by-side buttons
to the right of the CRESNET ID, Enable CRESNET II and Disable CRESNET II,
determine communication mode. Select Enable CRESNET II for normal Cresnet
communication mode and Disable CRESNET II to set the touchpanel into demo
mode. Text within the selected button changes color from black to red.
Communication mode is factory set to Enable CRESNET II.
It is possible to maintain touchpanel control (with the Enable Touch Screen button)
while communicating via RS-232 with the console or non-Crestron device.
Otherwise, choose Disable Touch Screen to discontinue touchpanel control. Text
within the selected button changes color from black to red.
There may be Ethernet devices (i.e. a control system) on the network that
communicates with the touchpanel via CIP (Cresnet Internet Protocol). Two buttons
centrally located on the Interface Menu determine if the touchpanel is capable of this
type of communication. Select Enable CIP to permit this protocol recognition and
Disable CIP to prohibit any CIP connection. CIP must be enabled for the touchpanel
to communicate with other Crestron Ethernet devices.
NOTE: The CIP control buttons will only be displayed when the TPS-ENETL is
properly installed.
NOTE: Refer to “Diagnostics Menu” on page 16 for instructions on enabling the
Ethernet card.
NOTE: If an Ethernet card is installed and enabled, and CIP control is disabled, the
touchpanel will not be able to communicate with other Crestron Ethernet devices, but
will be able to communicate with utilities such as Viewport via TCP/IP.

The Audio button, located on the top row of the SETUP MENU, is used to display
the AUDIO MENU. Use this screen to activate sounds (recorded WAV files or line
level input from an external source), the microphone Automatic Gain Control
(AGC), and audible key clicks. This feature is a useful feedback tool or can enhance
a custom interface.
Volume (for WAV & line input) is controlled with the DOWN and UP buttons in
the first row. For example, the WAV File Volume value is shown as a red bar graph
and is controlled with the DOWN and UP buttons. Line and key click volume is
similarly adjusted.
Balance (for each audio type) is controlled with the LEFT and RIGHT buttons in
the third row. For example, the WAV File Balance value is shown as a red bar
graph and is controlled with the LEFT and RIGHT buttons. Line balance is
similarly adjusted.
The Play WAV File button appears beneath AUDIO MENU title block. Select this
button to adjust the volume and balance as a pre-loaded WAV file plays. WAV file
audio messages can provide that custom interface with a touchpanel, assuming this
feature is enabled. To enable this feature, verify that the WAV On button is active
(red text). An active WAV Off button disables the feature. Refer to "WAV File
Audio Messages" on page 29 for more information on WAV files.
Line level audio is possible only when enabled and the proper external connections
are made. Refer to "Hardware Hookup" on page 16 for information about the
AUDIO INPUT port. To enable this feature, verify that the Line On button is active
(red text). An active Line Off button disables the feature.
Confirmation of a button press on a touchpanel is acknowledged by an audible click
assuming this feature is enabled. To enable this feature, verify that the Key Click
On button is active (red text). An active Key Click Off button disables the feature.
NOTE: If key click is enabled on a touchpanel, each press of the touchpanel results

Video Setup (Horizontal Lines Portray Video Sample)
Use this screen to select one of the video inputs and adjust the brightness, contrast,
saturation, and hue, if necessary. The user has the option to force the video image to
a certain mode (i.e., composite video or S-video if using the TPS-VIDL-1 or
TPS-VIDL-2 in S-video configuration) or switch modes automatically after checking
the image for colors. Use either the TP Composite / BNC Composite or
TP S-Video / BNC S-Video buttons to manually control the mode. TP or BNC on
the selected button specifies the video input connector. TP corresponds to the twisted
pair connector (balanced video from a PVID, Room Box, etc.) and BNC corresponds
to the BNC connectors (unbalanced video from a VCR, DVD, etc.). Use the
appropriate Auto Detect button for automatic control. The text color of the selected
button is red rather than black.
NOTE: When configuring the TPS-VIDL-2, the Video 1 signal type can be
automatically detected as long as one signal is sent to the touchpanel.
NOTE: Up to four composite video feeds can be physically connected to a TPSVIDL-2 (two BNC feeds and two twisted-pair feeds). However, only two composite
video channels can be selected for viewing. Specify the connections to use by
selecting TP composite, TP S-Video, BNC Composite, or BNC S-Video for each
channel.
NOTE: A solid blue screen is displayed in the video window if a video signal is not
detected or is very weak. Verify that the video source is functioning and properly
connected. If the source is properly connected and functioning, a distribution
amplifier may need to be used.
Fast motion mode (if the Fast Motion button is selected) reduces motion artifacts
and should be used for most video sources. Still video mode (if the Still Video
button is selected) works best for still pictures. It has a maximum resolution and
reduces flicker. However, it suffers from motion artifacts. The text color of the
selected button is red rather than black.
Select the Soft button for soft mode video. In this mode, video filtering and noise
reduction can produce a better image from some sources. Alternatively, select the
Sharp button for sharp mode video. This mode provides maximum detail, but is
more susceptible to noise in source. The text color of the selected button is red rather
than black.

Do not forward any queries to this
address. Instead refer to “Further
(i.e., SIMPL™ Windows and Crestron VisionTools® Pro-e (VT Pro-e) software
Inquiries” on page 44 for assistance. packages).
The program output of Crestron AppBuilder is a SIMPL Windows program with
much of the functionality encapsulated in macros. Therefore, extending the
capabilities of the system is very easy. Crestron AppBuilder and SIMPL Windows
are intended for users with different levels of programming knowledge. Crestron
AppBuilder is easier to use for the beginning programmer, and much faster for all
programmers. However, it does not allow the degree of control and flexibility that
SIMPL Windows does. 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.
Crestron AppBuilder comes with templates for all supported interfaces. If a user
wishes to create a touchpanel project using templates with a different look-and-feel
this can be accomplished by making a custom template. This custom template can
then be used by Crestron AppBuilder to create the final project files to be loaded into
the panels. Alternatively, VT Pro-e can be used to tweak projects created with
Crestron AppBuilder or develop original touchpanel screen designs.
The following are recommended software version requirements for the PC:
•
Application Builder version 1.1.6 or later with Application Builder
Templates version 2.12 or later. Requires SIMPL Windows.
•
SIMPL Windows version 1.50.05 or later with library update file.
Requires SIMPL+ Cross Compiler version 1.1.
•
Crestron Database version 14.1 or later. Required by SIMPL Windows.
•
VisionTools Pro-e version 2.2.0.0 or later. Used for graphical touchscreen
design.
NOTE: The latest versions can be obtained from the Downloads | Software Updates
section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com). Crestron software and any files
on the website are for Authorized Crestron dealers and Crestron Authorized
Independent Programmers (CAIP) only. New users may be required to register to
obtain access to certain areas of the site (including the FTP site).
Digital, analog and serial join numbers are a common thread between VT Pro-e and
SIMPL Windows. These numbers define how the objects on a touchpanel page of a
VT Pro-e project interface to the outside world, specifically the Cresnet system as
defined in the SIMPL Windows program. There are digital join numbers that carry
out some predetermined function (a logical high or low); analog join numbers for
displaying incremental values, sliders, gauges and bar graphs; and serial join
numbers that allow for the display of variable text and transmission/reception of
serial commands from other manufacturers. Unjoined objects are not interfaced with
the system and thus cannot initiate any logic functions (although they can perform
page flips).

Programming with the Crestron AppBuilder
The easiest method of
programming, but does not
offer as much flexibility as
SIMPL Windows.
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. Crestron AppBuilder then programs the system, including touchpanel
projects and control system logic.
Crestron AppBuilder is fully integrated with Crestron's suite of software
development tools, including SIMPL Windows, VT Pro-e, and the Crestron
Database. 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: The following are acceptable file extensions for programs that include a
TPS-5000L, developed for specific control system types:
.smw: projectname.smw (SIMPL Windows source file)
.spz: projectname.spz (compiled file for 2-series)
.bin: projectname.bin (compiled file for CNX generation)
.csz: projectname.csz (compiled file for CNX generation with SIMPL+)
.ush: projectname.ush (compiled file for CNX generation with SIMPL+ header file)
.usp: projectname.usp (source code module for SIMPL+)
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
TPS-5000L touchpanel. A Join Number Remapping (JNR) program can be written to
augment the functionality of the touchpanel by making some of the touchpanel’s
internal functions available to the SIMPL Windows programmer. Refer to “Join
Number Remapping” on page 28 for more information.
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.

TPS-5000 Symbol in Programming Manager
Programming Manager is where programmers “program” a Creston control system
by assigning signals to symbols. The following diagram shows the TPS-5000 symbol
in the SIMPL Windows’ Programming Manager.
Detail View of the TPS-5000 in SIMPL Windows’ Programming Manager
Digital
Analog
Serial
NOTE: Join numbers are expandable to 4000 digital & analog, 999 serial.
Signal Types
Signals interconnect the various devices and logic symbols that comprise a SIMPL
program. Signals can be one of three types: digital, analog, or serial. For any given
signal, the signal type is determined by its driving source. That is, if the symbol that
drives the signal has an analog output, then, by definition, the connecting signal is
analog.
In SIMPL Windows, the signal types are color-coded as follows:
Digital = Blue
Analog = Red
Serial = Black
Undefined/Other = Green

Crestron Isys™ TPS-5000L
12 Inch Lectern/Wall Mounted Touchpanel
NOTE: “Other” signals are a combination of the three basic types (e.g. many
symbols accept either analog or serial signals; the combination is shown as a green
signal). The signal type is displayed on the Status Bar when the signal is highlighted.
For additional information, refer to Doc. 6120, Crestron SIMPL Windows Symbol
Guide. It may be downloaded from the Downloads | Product Manuals | Software
section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com).
Digital Signals
A digital signal contains one bit of information and usually takes on one of two
values: 1 or 0. These two digits can represent the logical values true and false, and
they can be represented in an electronic device by the states on/off or high/low,
recognized as two voltage levels. (Other common descriptors are active/inactive.)
Analog Signals
Unlike digital signals, analog signals can vary continuously in value, in the same
manner as a parameter such as volume, temperature, or pressure. Analog signals
contain 16 bits of information, which means that this type of signal can have values
ranging from 0 to 65535 (216-1). This 16-bit property makes analog signals useful for
controlling devices that do not have discrete settings, such as volume controllers,
pan/tilt head controllers, and lighting dimmers.
Serial Signals
Serial signals are much like analog signals, in that they, too, contain 16 bits of
information. However, whereas the value of an analog signal is used directly-to
control volume or temperature, for instance–the value of the serial signal is used as a
pointer to a location in memory that contains a string of characters. When a serial
signal is routed to a symbol, that symbol can identify the signal as serial rather than
analog and it will automatically look at the data it points to.
Thus serial signals are used to facilitate the transmission of serial data (strings of
characters). These signals can be generated by incoming data on a COM port or by a
symbol that has a serial output.
TPS-5000L Input/Output Signals
The TPS-5000L symbol provides up to 4000 digital input and output joins, 4000
analog input and output joins, and up to 999 serial input joins. The programmer
selects the signal types by clicking on the appropriate button at the top of the Symbol
Detail view when programming the panel.
The following tables list and give functional descriptions for the touchpanel outputs
and inputs.

Device Extenders
Device extenders provide additional logic and functionality to a device. The Poll
Manager and Sleep/Wake Manager symbols are device extenders for touchpanels.
Poll Manager takes the touchpanel on and off line during polling by the control
system. Sleep/Wake Manager suspends and restores operation of the touchpanel. For
additional information about Device Extenders, refer to the latest version of the
Crestron SIMPL Windows Symbol Guide (Doc. 6120), or the on-line help included
with SIMPL Windows.
Example Program
An example program for the TPS-5000L is available from the Crestron FTP site
(ftp.crestron.com/Examples). Search for the file TPS5000_SIMPL_Windows_example_(Doc.5863)_TPS-5000L_(Doc. 5783).SMW that
contains the example program.
Join Number Remapping
Join Number Remapping (JNR) is a programming concept that allows a TPS Series
Panel to use join numbers with values over 4000 (Join Numbers 4001 to 15999 and
Reserved Join Numbers) by bringing them within the range of the TPS touchpanel
symbol, thereby increasing a touchpanel’s functionality. Through JNR, a TPS Series
Panel’s internal functions become accessible to a control system and can activate the
local functions of other touchpanels, route its internal feedback back to the control
system, and receive feedback from remote locations. JNR provides the additional
capability of managing IP IDs in Ethernet applications where a touchpanel
communicates with multiple control systems that have been uploaded with the same
program. Refer to the latest version of the Join Number Remapping Reference Guide
(Doc. 5969) and the SIMPL Windows help file for more details.
Programming with VisionTools® Pro-e
VT Pro-e, a design and programming Windows®-based software, permits the
creation of unlimited control screen variations incorporating two and threedimensional graphics and text as well as video and sounds (recorded as WAV files).
A set of pages, which make up a project, can be designed for each TPS-5000L
touchpanel application. Each page contains objects such as custom control graphics,
two and three-dimensional buttons, sliders, and digital readouts which allow the user
to interface with the control system via join numbers. Unjoined objects are not
interfaced with the system and thus cannot initiate any functions. The completed and
compiled project is uploaded to the touchpanel and programmed into the flash

PROM via the File | Upload Project command. The touchpanel uses the
programmed project until another project is uploaded from the PC. Programs cannot
be extracted from the touchpanel. The PC may be disconnected from the control
system or panel except during reprogramming. VT Pro-e also allows users the option
to generate projects destined for web browsers rather than for physical touchpanels.
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).
NOTE: The following are acceptable file extensions for programs that include a
TPS-5000L:
.vtp
projectname.vtp (VT Pro-e source file)
.vtz
projectname.vtz (compiled file)
Multi-Mode Objects
Multi-mode objects offer highperformance programming!
The single most-advanced VT Pro-e high-performance programming technique
involving the TPS-5000L is the concept of multi-mode objects. A multi-mode object
(i.e., button, legend, etc.) is an object drawn on a VT Pro-e page that can have one or
more active and inactive visible settings (modes).
For examples, refer to the MULTI-MODE_OBJECT_EXAMPLES_OF_VTPROE_PROJECTS_USE_WITH_ISYS_TOUCHPANELS.ZIP file. It is available from
the Crestron FTP site (ftp.crestron.com/Examples). This file contains the VT Pro-e
touchpanel files and SIMPL Windows files that illustrate the high-performance
capabilities of multi-mode objects.
WAV File Audio Messages
The TPS-5000L is capable of playing audio messages as system prompts and
responses. These files are recorded as WAV files on a PC using an audio utility such
as Sound Recorder that is packaged with Microsoft Windows 95/98/Me/XP/NT/
2000™. Files from other sources may also be converted to an acceptable format by
using this or a similar utility. Many other audio utilities are available commercially
or as shareware. The TPS-5000L touchpanel only accepts the following WAV file
format: PCM, 8, 11, 16, 22, or 44KHz, mono or stereo, 8 or 16 bit. For more
information about how to use Sound Recorder, refer to its User’s Guide and
extensive help information provided with the software.
Pre-recorded WAV files for voice prompts and responses are available from
Crestron. These files can be stored into and programmed for use in the touchpanel
directly or may be edited with the Sound Recorder. For example, the individual files
can be combined to create custom messages.

12 Inch Lectern/Wall Mounted Touchpanel
Crestron Isys™ TPS-5000L
NOTE: WAV files (for the TPS-5000L touchpanel) can be obtained from the
Crestron FTP site (ftp.crestron.com/Wave LC/).
Since the CT/LC-1000 touchpanel accepts the same WAV file formats, only use
those WAV files designated for the CT/LC-1000, TPS-2000L, or TPS-5000
touchpanels. These WAV files are different than those made available for the
CNXTA, Crestron CNX Telephone Audio Interface Card.
NOTE: WAV files reside in the touchpanel’s Flash memory and will affect the
amount of available space for touchpanel screens.
Sound Manager
NOTE: If keyclick is enabled on a touchpanel, each press of the touchpanel results
in an audible click. It may be desirable to conceal the keyclick sound for certain
buttons (e.g., if the button triggers playing of a WAV file). Using VT Pro-e, the
panel designer has the option to suppress the keyclick on a button-by-button basis
from the “Button Properties” window.
Crestron VT Pro-e (version 2.1.0 and later) contains an audio tool, Sound Manager,
which permits the panel designer to attach WAV files to a touchpanel project. Sound
Manager is available from the Tools pull-down menu and opens the “Sound
Manager” window, shown after this paragraph.
“Sound Manager” Window
Sound Manager Guidelines
There are three things to keep in mind when using Sound Manager.
1.
Each WAV file must be assigned a unique digital join number. The join
number options include none, keyclick, or a number (1 through 4000).
The default is none. If the keyclick option is selected, this WAV file
becomes the default keyclick sound for all buttons. The other WAV
files can be played by having the SIMPL Windows program assert the
assigned join number.

Operations Guide - DOC. 5783A
Crestron Isys™ TPS-5000L
12 Inch Lectern/Wall Mounted Touchpanel
2.
Each WAV file must have the correct audio format and attributes for
the TPS-5000L target type selected in VT Pro-e.
The correct audio format is PCM, 8 or 16 KHz, 8 bit, mono.
3.
There are three system-wide join numbers that the designer can define.
The first, sound playing from panel, differs from the other two in that it
is triggered from the panel.
a.
Sound Playing from Panel – The signal for this join number goes
high when the WAV file plays.
b.
Mute Sounds – All WAV files (except the keyclick) in the project
are muted when this join number goes high.
c.
Mute Key Click – The keyclick sound is muted when this join
number goes high.
Using Sound Manager
Sound Manager is broken into two distinct components. The Project Audio Joins
component, shown below, permits the designer to assign the three system-wide join
numbers described in the previous section. The three system joins can be assigned
automatically with the Auto button or by scrolling down to the desired number.
Project Audio Joins Component
The Sound List component, shown below, permits the designer to attach WAV files
to the touchpanel project. Complete the following steps to attach (add) a WAV file.
Sound List Component
Operations Guide - DOC. 5783A
1.
Use the Browse button to locate the desired WAV files. It should
appear in the field adjacent to the Browse button.
2.
If necessary, select the Play button to verify that the file in the browse
field is the desired file.
3.
Select the Add button to transfer the WAV file to the Sound List table
located below the browse field. The audio parameters of the file also
appear to the right of the table.
4.
Repeat steps 1 through 3 for each desired WAV file.

NOTE: To remove a WAV file from the Sound List table, highlight the file and
click on the Remove button.
The Properties button opens the “Sound Properties” window for a highlighted WAV
file in the Sound List table. The designer can assign a join number either
automatically with the Auto button or by scrolling down to the desired number.
Select Description to enter comments about the WAV file.
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. The tables on the next few pages
provide lists of reserved join numbers available within the software.
NOTE: Many touchpanel configuration “shortcuts” are available via the software.
A button can be created on a page that either calls up the Preferences Menu, adjusts
brightness, etc., via reserved join numbers.
NOTE: Reserved join numbers can also be automatically activated by a control
system when using join number remapping. Refer to the latest version of the Join
Number Remapping Reference Guide (Doc. 5969) and the SIMPL Windows help
file for more details.

MultiByte International Characters
Most languages use a single byte of 8 bits to represent a character, e.g. English,
French, German, Hebrew, Russian, Thai, etc.
Multibyte character fonts require more than the usual 8 bits to specify a character.
This occurs when a language has more than 256 characters (28) in a font. For
example, Chinese fonts contain several thousand characters. Other multibyte
languages include Japanese and Korean.
There are two separate issues with multibyte characters - static text on buttons and
indirect text on buttons. No Isys touchpanel firmware changes are required in either
case.
Static text on a button, entered in the standard way in VT Pro-e, always works under
Windows 98. Under Windows XP, you must use VT Pro-e 3.0 or later.
Indirect text on a button is entered in VT Pro-e and the actual string to be displayed
is entered in SIMPL Windows. You must use VT Pro-e 3.0 or later to guarantee that
the full set of characters in the font is stored on the touchpanel. You must use SIMPL
Windows 2.03.11 or later to enter Chinese characters directly. As of this publication
date, only completely single byte or completely multibyte strings may be entered or
they will not be compiled correctly in SIMPL Windows. In other words, you cannot
enter Chinese character interspersed with numbers. You can enter Chinese characters
or numbers in separate strings. Crestron is scheduling time to fix this in the near
future and the release notes for SIMPL Windows will mention it.
For now, the workaround of showing a graphic that displays the string can be used,
but it is not dynamic.

Uploading and Upgrading
Assuming a PC is properly connected to the entire system, Crestron programming
software allows the programmer to upload programs and projects to the system and
touchpanel after their development. However, there are times when the files for the
program and projects are compiled and not uploaded. Instead, compiled files may be
distributed from programmers to installers, from Crestron to dealers, etc. Even
firmware upgrades are available from the Crestron website as new features are
developed after product releases. In those instances, one has the option to upload via
the programming software or to upload and upgrade via the Crestron Viewport.
NOTE: Currently, the Crestron Viewport is only available as a pull-down command
from SIMPL Windows and VT Pro-e (Tools | Viewport). The Viewport utility
accomplishes multiple system tasks, primarily via an RS-232 or TCP/IP connection
between the control system and a PC. It is used to observe system processes, upload
new operating systems and firmware, change system and network parameters, and
communicate with network device consoles and touchpanels, among many other
tasks. Viewport can also function as a terminal emulator for generic file transfer. All
of these functions are accessed through the commands and options in the Viewport
menus. Therefore, for its effectiveness as a support and diagnostic tool, the Crestron
Viewport may be preferred over development tools when uploading programs and
projects.
The following sections define how one would upload a SIMPL Windows program,
VT Pro-e project or upgrade the firmware of the TPS-5000L touchpanel. However,
before attempting to upload or upgrade, it is necessary to establish communications.
Communication Settings
Connection of a PC to the TPS-5000L touchpanel can be direct via the RS-232 port
on the touchpanel or through a control system (Cresnet). Both methods of connection
provide setup for RS-232 communication.
To prepare the TPS-5000L for uploading or upgrading, refer to the following figure
for a typical connection diagram.

Operations Guide - DOC. 5783A
Crestron Isys™ TPS-5000L
12 Inch Lectern/Wall Mounted Touchpanel
Appendix A: RS-232 Protocol
TPS-5000L touchpanels support panel operation via a host computer through the
RS-232 port. Crestron recommends that the following serial data format is set.
Suggested Serial Data Format
Baud Rate: 38400
Data Bits: 8
Parity: None
Stop Bits: 1
These settings may be altered via the RS-232 Menu when configuring the
touchpanel, however, doing so may prevent Crestron supplied software from
operating with the touchpanel. Low baud rates will cause the panel to appear
unresponsive. For example, at 300 baud, a single button press (and release) generates
12 characters and requires more than 0.333 of a second to send. Delays as short as
0.1 of a second are generally considered perceptible and somewhat annoying.
RS-232 Menu Button Selection
To enable
this
capability,
select this
button
Command Format - Command format for all items sent to or from the touchpanel is
very simple. All items are ASCII strings terminated by a <cr>. Line feed characters
are ignored, thus <cr><lf> or <lf><cr> are also acceptable line terminators. When
the touchpanel sends a line, it is always terminated with <cr><lf>.
For all strings, the first character determines command type. Numeric arguments, if
present, are in decimal and separated by commas. No control characters are
embedded in the strings to ease processing the strings with high-level languages. Be
careful when using commas in BASIC, because BASIC uses commas for field
separators when reading strings from a file using the INPUT # statement. Since we
are dealing with complete lines, use the LINE INPUT # statement to cure this
problem.
P<#> and R<#> Commands - When in RUN mode, pressing a button (assuming
that it has been joined) generates a six-character code in the format P###<cr><lf>,
where ### is a three-character decimal number in the range of 1 through 4000,
providing for up to 4000 functions. When the button is released, a similar code is
generated, with an 'R' in place of the 'P'. Given that only one button may be pressed
at a time, an 'R' code always follows a 'P' code. A fixed three-digit format is used to
simplify software on the host.
Operations Guide - DOC. 5783A
12 Inch Lectern/Wall Mount Touchpanel: Crestron Isys™ TPS-5000L • 45
12 Inch Lectern/Wall Mounted Touchpanel
Crestron Isys™ TPS-5000L
Codes may be sent to the touchpanel in the same form as they are received. The 'P'
form turns on a function and the 'R' form turns off a function; sending back
information received from the touchpanel (i.e., jumping pins 2 and 3 on the RS-232
port) makes the buttons momentary. Notice that the touchpanel responds to P and R
commands even when configured for other interface modes. Selecting an RS-232
interface mode merely enables P and R commands to be issued. In addition, the fixed
format is not required for commands sent to the touchpanel; P1, P01, and P001 are
all perfectly valid commands.
Compared to running on Cresnet, an RS-232 interface to a personal computer is
slower, provides less features (such as tracking, among others), is less noise immune
(Cresnet uses balanced transmission for high common mode rejection, RS-232 does
not), and requires the user to supply the control logic program in the PC.
V<chan>,<level> Command - Levels in gauge and slider objects may be set
through the RS-232 port. The command contains both the object channel number (1255) and level (0-65535) in decimal separated by a comma. For example, V6,32768
would set channel 6 to level 128, or half way up.
One quick note on baud rate and smooth ramping. Ramping is accomplished by
sending successive levels to the object. To do this in 64 levels over three seconds, for
example, requires about 576 bytes worth of commands to be sent, and could not be
accomplished at any rate less than 2400 baud. Obviously, ramping several objects at
once requires a baud rate several times as high.
Indirect Text – TPS-5000L touchpanels support a feature that permits the text field
in any user-defined button to be altered on the fly in RUN mode. This is
accomplished by substituting a text pointer for the text in the button. The text pointer
informs the panel to use the contents of a variable that may be dynamically redefined
as the text field for the button. This presents a considerable advantage over other
methods in that changing screens does not destroy information and that information
may be placed in buttons not currently displayed.
The text pointer is a number in the range of ‘1’ through ‘127’ preceded by the
“pound” symbol (#). If [text…] is omitted, the text field is cleared. If [text…] exists,
it is added to the text field. For example, consider the following string:
#3,Now is the time<cr>
#3,for all good men<cr>
#3,to come to the<cr>
#3,aid of the party<cr>
Assuming that a button with an #3 text pointer was being displayed, the contents of
the button would be changed to:
Now is the time
for all good men
to come to the
aid of the party
NOTE: To clear the text field for this example, type in “#3<cr>”.
As each line is entered, the display is updated. Since the text may be placed in
several different buttons, no boundary checking is done to see if the text fits in the
button. If the text overflows the button/boundaries, it remains centered in the
button/boundary.

Appendix C: Configuring the RS-232 Port for Use
To configure the RS-232 port of the TPS-5000L, a local PC that contains a Crestron
Viewport is required. The Viewport is one of the development tools that is part of
Crestron SIMPL® Windows or VisionTools® Pro-e (VT Pro-e) software.
Obtaining Communications
Refer to “Communication Settings” on page 36 for detailed instructions on
connecting a PC to the touchpanel.
Configuration Options
There are several RS-232 communication options (at the time of this printing, these
were available):
•
CONSOLE – console active on RS-232 port. Use to load programs,
firmware, or to set configuration. This is the default. Use this
configuration if no other option is appropriate.
•
CONTROL – activates special control mode. Use for control by nonCrestron device or within a non-Crestron control system. Refer to
"Appendix A: RS-232 Protocol" on page 45. For details.
•
TOUCHOUT – touchscreen output sent to RS-232 port. Use for serial
mouse control or Telestrator output. Directly connect computer or
Telestrator box to RS-232 port on TPS-5000L (i.e., touch screen
output). For example, use when an RGB window with tablet overlay on
the TPS panel acts as a serial mouse controller for a PC. In this case,
use the Crestron Serial Mouse Control Driver (tpad.exe), which can be
downloaded from the Downloads | Software Updates section of the
Crestron website (www.crestron.com). Another use is with the
Pointmaker telestrator. For details, refer to the Telestrator Integration
Guide, which can be downloaded from the Downloads | Product
Manuals section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com).
•
MOUSE – RS-232 port used for mouse input. For use with a
Microsoft Compatible Serial Mouse as a pointing device on the
TPS-5000L. Also known as “Touch the PC”.
•
EXT_TOUCH – RS-232 port used for external touch screen input (i.e.,
SMART Matisse Overlay or Microtouch Display).
RS-232 Port Configuration
After establishing communication, the RS-232 can now be configured for
communication with an option. Complete the following steps in the order provided.
1.
From the "TPS>" prompt, enter the following command:
rs232 ?
2.
The TPS-5000L responds with the following:
RS232MODE [CONSOLE|CONTROL|RF|TOUCHOUT|MOUSE|EXT_TOUCH]
CONSOLE – console active on RS232 port

3.
Enter a command that chooses one of the RS-232 communication
options. Use the same spelling as shown in the last touchpanel
response.
4.
The TPS-5000L responds with the following:
New RS232mode set. Reboot to take effect.
5.
Enter the following command:
reboot
6.
The TPS-5000L responds with the following:
Rebooting system. Please wait.
7.
From the Viewport, select Remote | Remote Console | Disconnect.
At this point, the PC and the TPS-5000L are no longer communicating. Assuming
that the touchpanel is properly connected for use (as shown in the diagram for
"Communication Settings" on page 36) and the control system is connected to the
PC, the setup screens can be displayed to set the NET ID and other configurations.
NOTE: Alternatively, use a Cresnet command from the Viewport (communicating
to the control system) to access the setup screens. Verify the NET ID of the TPS5000L and select Functions | Put Touch Panel into Setup Mode. Enter the NET ID
and click OK.

Return and Warranty Policies
Merchandise Returns / Repair Service
1.
No merchandise may be returned for credit, exchange, or service without prior authorization
from CRESTRON. To obtain warranty service for CRESTRON products, contact the factory
and request an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number. Enclose a note specifying
the nature of the problem, name and phone number of contact person, RMA number, and
return address.
2.
Products may be returned for credit, exchange, or service with a CRESTRON Return
Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. Authorized returns must be shipped freight
prepaid to CRESTRON, Cresskill, N.J., or its authorized subsidiaries, with RMA number
clearly marked on the outside of all cartons. Shipments arriving freight collect or without an
RMA number shall be subject to refusal. CRESTRON reserves the right in its sole and
absolute discretion to charge a 15% restocking fee, plus shipping costs, on any products
returned with an RMA.
3.
Return freight charges following repair of items under warranty shall be paid by CRESTRON,
shipping by standard ground carrier. In the event repairs are found to be non-warranty, return
freight costs shall be paid by the purchaser.

CRESTRON ELECTRONICS, Inc. warrants its products to be free from manufacturing defects in
materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of three (3) years from the date of

This warranty extends to products purchased directly from CRESTRON or an authorized
CRESTRON dealer. Purchasers should inquire of the dealer regarding the nature and extent of the

CRESTRON shall not be liable to honor the terms of this warranty if the product has been used in
any application other than that for which it was intended, or if it has been subjected to misuse,
accidental damage, modification, or improper installation procedures. Furthermore, this warranty
does not cover any product that has had the serial number altered, defaced, or removed.
This warranty shall be the sole and exclusive remedy to the original purchaser. In no event shall
CRESTRON be liable for incidental or consequential damages of any kind (property or economic
damages inclusive) arising from the sale or use of this equipment. CRESTRON is not liable for
any claim made by a third party or made by the purchaser for a third party.

parts or labor. Repaired or replaced equipment and parts supplied under this warranty shall be
covered only by the unexpired portion of the warranty.
Except as expressly set forth in this warranty, CRESTRON makes no other warranties, expressed
or implied, nor authorizes any other party to offer any warranty, including any implied warranties
of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Any implied warranties that may be imposed
