Wall Mount 2-Way RF Compact
Color Touchpanel: STX-1550CW
Description
Functional Description
The STX-1550CW is a 2-way radio frequency (RF) compact color SmarTouch™
touchpanel that, when used with the BB-1550CW back box and DA-1550CW
docking assembly, is wall mounted and provides a user interface to a Crestron
remote control system (herein referred to as the Cresnet system). While the
touchpanel is docked, the DA-1550CW provides operating power, hard-wire
communications with standard Crestron remote control system (herein referred to as
the Cresnet system), and recharges the Crestron High Performance Rechargeable
Power Pack (ST-BTP) of the touchpanel.
The STX-1550CW touchpanel offers:
•
256 color display
•
pop-up subpages to reduce memory requirements, providing optimal
speed and performance
•
multiple button and icon configurations
•
up to 999 functions and 96 screens
•
imported photographs, drawings, and icons
•
support for downloadable fonts, proportional and non-proportional
•
foreign language text
When not docked in the DA-1550CW, the touchpanel is a handheld, long range, RF,
2-way wireless transceiver that communicates through a RF transceiver/gateway,
STRFGWX (sold separately) to the Cresnet system. The 2-way communications
provide delivery of commands to the Cresnet system and provide dynamic onscreen
feedback for real-time confirmation of commands. Up to 15 touchpanels can
communicate with one STRFGWX. The RF signals can travel from a minimum of
three feet up to a maximum of 150 feet. The location of the STRFGWX and the
orientation of the antenna are important factors in the RF performance.

Inquiries” on page 13 for assistance.
The STX-1550CW is supported by the VisionTools™ Pro-e (VT Pro-e) SmarTouch
Wizard that automatically configures the entire system and the touchpanel pages. VT
Pro-e, a design and programming Windows®-based software, permits the creation of
unlimited control screen variations incorporating two and three-dimensional graphics
and text. A set of pages which make up a project can be designed for each
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 Cresnet system. The project is uploaded to the touchpanel and
programmed into the flash PROM. The touchpanel uses the programmed project
until another set is uploaded from the PC. The PC may be disconnected from the
rack 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.
A copy of the software can be obtained from the Downloads page (TOUCHPNL
Library) of Crestron’s website (www.crestron.com). New users are required to
register in order to obtain access to the FTP site. A tutorial is provided as a guide for
the novice programmer.

Recommended Touchpanel Cleaning
Keep the surface of the touchscreen free of dirt, dust, or other materials that could
degrade optical properties. Long term contact with abrasive materials can scratch the
surface which may detrimentally affect image quality.
For best cleaning results, use a clean, damp, non-abrasive cloth with any
commercially available non-ammonia glass cleaner. Surrounding plastic enclosure
may not provide a complete water-tight seal. Therefore, apply cleaning solution to
the cloth rather than the surface of the touchscreen. Wipe touchscreen clean and
avoid ingress of moisture beneath panels.
Applying Power
The touchpanel can be powered via the DA-1550CW while docked, the ST-BTP, or
external AC power pack. Each of these items has their own Operations Guides which
details proper usage. Refer to the table on the next page for the required document.

Identity Codes
The STX-1550CW touchpanel uses three distinct types of identity (ID) codes:
Cresnet identity (NET ID), RF ID, and RF CHANNEL. These codes are assigned to
the touchpanel from the Interface Submenu when the unit is configured. Refer to
“Interface Submenu” on page 7. For the touchpanel to be identified within the
Cresnet system, these assignments must match assignments made in the SIMPL
Windows program. The RF CHANNEL assignment made for the STRFGWX is
made in the Crestron Viewport via SIMPL Windows or VT Pro-e. Refer to
“Programming in SIMPL Windows” on page 9.
NET ID
Every equipment and user interface within the Cresnet system requires a unique NET
ID. These codes are recognized by a two-digit hexadecimal number from 03 to FE.
The NET ID of the unit must match the NET ID specified in the SIMPL Windows
program.
RF ID
Every STX-1550CW touchpanel communicating with a STRFGWX requires a
unique RF ID to secure RF communications. There are 15 useable codes for multiple
touchpanel(s) ranging from 1 to F (hexadecimal number). The RF ID of the unit must
match the RF ID specified in the SIMPL Windows program.
RF CHANNEL
Each STX-1550CW touchpanel communicating to the network via a specific
STRFGWX transceiver must have a RF CHANNEL that matches the RF CHANNEL
of the STRFGWX. Each STRFGWX in a system requires a unique RF CHANNEL.
There are 16 possible RF CHANNELS ranging from 0 to F (hexadecimal number).
The RF CHANNEL of the unit must match the RF CHANNEL assigned to the
STRFGWX via the Viewport in SIMPL Windows or VT Pro-e.
Configuring the Touchpanel
To configure the touchpanel, it is 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. Holding a finger to the touchscreen for five
seconds after the “SETUP MODE” message is displayed sets the brightness to high.

Manage Power Submenu
Manage Power Submenu
NOTE: Display backlight requires warm-up time. A display reaches 80% of its
final level in five minutes and full brightness in 20 minutes.
The touchpanel display hardware life can be lengthened by turning off the backlight
when the touchpanel is inactive. The MANAGE POWER button on the Setup
Menu reveals the Manage Power Submenu, shown to the left. The length of
touchpanel inactivity can be specified to minimize power utilization.
BACKLIGHT TIMEOUT is displayed on the Manage Power Submenu. This
setting turns the backlight off when the touchpanel is inactive for the specified time
(shown in minutes). When the touchpanel is activated, the last screen to be displayed
reappears. A two minute BACKLIGHT TIMEOUT is shown in the diagram.
Minutes can vary from 0 to 120, where 0 disables the timeout. The DOWN and UP
buttons decrease and increase the timeout, respectively.
NOTE: Power Down Timeout should be set low to maximize power pack/battery
life. However, Power Down Timeout should be set greater than Backlight Timeout.
Otherwise, the Backlight Timeout is never reached.
NOTE: The purpose of the Power Down Timeout is to maximize power
pack/battery life. If the touchpanel is docked in the DA-1550CW docking assembly
or utilizes an external AC power pack, the panel does not power down when the
power down timeout is achieved. Standby timeout still functions.
Touch the RETURN button, located in the bottom right corner of the screen, to

must be correctly specified or communication will not occur. To set communication
parameters select the INTERFACE button from the Setup Menu to display the
Interface Submenu, shown to the left.
The NET ID is represented by ID # # for illustrative purposes on the Interface
Submenu. NET ID is the two-digit hexadecimal number that can range from 03 to FE
and must correspond to the NET ID set in the Crestron Viewport via SIMPL
Windows or VT Pro-e software. Matching NET IDs between the STX-1550CW
touchpanel and a VT Pro-e program is required if new touchpanel screens are to be
loaded. Matching NET IDs between touchpanels and a SIMPL Windows program is
required if data is to be successfully transferred. The NET ID of each STX-1550CW
is factory set to 03.
Two side-by-side buttons, < CRESNET ID and CRESNET > ID, decrease and
increase the NET ID by one, respectively.

The location of the STRFGWX and the orientation of the antenna are important factors in
the RF performance. Locate the unit outside of any metal enclosures and position the
antenna horizontally, pointing straight out of the unit. Adjust the antenna to achieve the
best range. The range of the unit is also dependent on its placement and the construction
of the building that it is used in.

Appendix
The purpose of this Appendix is to provide a programming solution for those that
prefer the last screen to be displayed when the touchpanel turns on after encountering
a POWER DOWN TIMEOUT. Stated simply, an INTERLOCK symbol needs to be
incorporated so that the control system flips to the last page rather than the page
marked as first. The information in this Appendix is not meant for everyone; only
those who wish to adopt this feature.
Overview
This Appendix offers a simple example of a control system that has three devices to
control: TV, VCR, and projector. As such, the VT Pro-e project includes three pages,
one for each device. Particular settings must be made on each device page to ensure
proper functionality. To support the goal of having the last page appear, the program
needs to be adjusted via SIMPL Windows. This Appendix provides a SIMPL block
diagram and description to characterize the details of the adjustment.
VT Pro-e Project
NOTE: The control logic for these devices is omitted for the sake of clarity.
NOTE: It is assumed that the reader has a working knowledge of VT Pro-e. If any
of the terms in this discussion are unfamiliar, please review VT Pro-e’s on-line help
contents.
The VT Pro-e project in this example contains three device pages: TV, VCR, and
PROJECTOR, shown below.

Button Assignment
In this system, the buttons labeled Press Here for VCR Control on the TV and
PROJECTOR pages are assigned a page flip to the VCR page and command the
projector to switch to its first video input. The buttons labeled Press Here for TV
Control on the VCR and PROJECTOR pages are assigned a page flip to the TV
page and command the projector to switch to its second video input. The buttons
labeled Press Here for Projector Control on the TV and VCR pages are assigned a
page flip to the PROJECTOR page. No other action is assigned.
All buttons on the device pages that cause page flips must be joined. This setting
permits the control system to keep track of every page flip and determine which page
is currently being displayed. That information is useful if the last page to be
displayed appears after a POWER DOWN TIMEOUT.
Join Number Assignment
In this example, Press Here for TV Control (Join # 6) and Press Here for VCR
Control (Join # 9) already have joined numbers assigned because they perform a
function. Only Press Here for Projector Control requires a new join number
assignment (Join # 22).
Each device page that is a destination of a page flip must be assigned a join number.
For this example, the page join numbers shown in the table below are assigned to the
device pages.
Page Join Number Assignments
DEVICE PAGE NAME
PAGE JOIN NUMBER
PROJECTOR
VCR
23
24
TV
25
SIMPL Program
In the SIMPL program, a signal must be assigned to Join # 22, so that the system
knows when a page is flipped to the PROJECTOR page. The name PROJ-FLIP is
assigned and placed on the button press side. There is no reason to have feedback on
the button since it flips the page immediately. For this example, assume Join # 6 is
assigned the signal name of TV-FLIP and Join # 9 has the signal name of VCR-FLIP.
Refer to the block diagram shown below.

These three signal names should drive an INTERLOCK symbol so that the system
can “remember” which page was shown last on the touchpanel. The outputs of the
INTERLOCK are assigned unique names: TV-FLIP-F, VCR-FLIP-F, and
PROJ-FLIP-F.
Finally, the corresponding feedback signals from the INTERLOCK must match the
appropriate page join number. For this example, the page join numbers shown in the
table below correlate to the INTERLOCK output signals.

Conclusion: How the Example Works
NOTE: Since the control system is controlling the page flips on the touchpanel, the
page flip setting on the buttons shown on the device pages can be removed via VT
Pro-e.
To illustrate how the example works, consider the following actions taken by the
user operating a STX touchpanel.
Operations Guide - DOC. 5849
1.
While viewing the TV page of the VT Pro-e project on the touchpanel,
the user touches the Press Here for Projector Control button.
2.
Join # 22 feedback is activated which forces PROJ-FLIP to logic “1”.
3.
The INTERLOCK symbol outputs PROJ-FLIP-F as logic “1”; all other
outputs from the symbol are logic “0”.
4.
Join # 23 feedback is activated which forces the touchpanel to flip to
the PROJECTOR page of the project.
5.
Let the POWER DOWN TIMEOUT period expire so that the
touchpanel turns off (or turn off the unit) while the PROJECTOR page
is displayed.
6.
When the touchpanel is reactivated, the control system provides the
current state of all the analog and digital feedback signals. A logic “1”
for Join # 23 is one of the signals resynced and therefore, the
touchpanel flips to the PROJECTOR page rather than the page marked
as first.
