Take care not to scratch the touchscreen. Use your finger to tap the touchscreen or
use plastic-tipped pens intended for use with a touchscreen.
Keep the MT-500C away from heat sources.
Do not expose MT-500C to rain or excessive moisture. If you spill water on the
MT-500C, remove battery pack and allow unit to dry for 48 hours before replacing
battery pack.
Do not drop MT-500C or subject unit to hard impact.

Use a soft, damp cloth to clean the unit. If the touchscreen is dirty or soiled, clean
it using a soft cloth moistened with a diluted window cleaning solution.
NOTE: Do not use a corrosive detergent or abrasive cleaning pad.
Establishing Communication with the MT-500C
Before uploading a program to the MT-500C, you must connect the control system
to the PC. This connection is through a serial port on the PC and the RS-232 port on
the MT-500C (or the RS-232 port on the docking station with a docked MT-500C).
Serial Connection
Connect the RS-232 port to the MT-500C serial port (or docking station serial port)
and to one of the COM ports (usually COM 1) on the PC using the supplied cable.
Open the Crestron Viewport and click Setup | Communication Settings to display
the “Port Settings” window (refer to graphic below). Then click RS-232 as the
connection type.
The PC communication settings specified below should match the protocol that the
MT-500C expects:
•
Port = COM 1 through COM 8. Select the correct COM port on the PC.
•
Baud rate = 115200 (Fixed).
•
Parity = None.
•
Number of data bits = 8.
•
Number of stop bits = 1.
•
Hardware handshaking (RTS/CTS) not enabled.
•
Software handshaking (XON/XOFF) not enabled.
“Port Settings” Window: Settings for RS-232 Communication with the MT-500C
To verify communications, load a project file (refer to “Loading a VT Pro-e
Project”) on page 16.

MiniTouch Color RF Wireless Handheld
Crestron MT-500C
Programming
The MT-500C provides a wireless RF user interface in a Cresnet 2-Series control
system.
You can create a program that allows you to set up the MT-500C to operate a
Crestron control system using the Crestron programming tool SIMPL™ Windows®.
This tool is intended for users with different levels of programming knowledge. The
flexibility of this tool is proportional to the degree of programming expertise (i.e.,
the more flexible, the more a programmer needs to know and account for).
The following are recommended software version requirements for the PC:
•
SIMPL Windows version 2.03 or later. Requires SIMPL+ Cross Compiler
version 1.1.
•
Crestron Database version 15.8 or later.
•
VisionTools Pro-e version 2.5. Used for graphical touchscreen design.
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 MT-500C.
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 (refer to graphic below).
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 (refer to graphic on
next page).

Operations Guide – DOC. 6101
Crestron MT-500C
MiniTouch Color RF Wireless Handheld
Expanded PRO2 System Tree
C2Net-Device Slot in Configuration Manager
To incorporate a MT-500C into the system, a gateway device is required. The
C2Net-Device Slot can accept a gateway such as the CNRFGWA-418. Once a
gateway is configured in a C2Net-Device Slot, the slot allows Cresnet
communication between the MT-500C and the control system.
In Configuration Manager, drag the CNRFGWA-418 gateway from the Wireless
Receivers (RF) folder of the Device Library. Also, drag and drop the MT-500C from
the Wireless remotes folder on the CNRFGWA-418.
Expand the system tree in the lower pane and double-click the MT-500C icon to
open the “Device Settings” window for the wireless handheld (refer to graphic
below). Select the RF/IR ID tab to change the handheld’s RF ID, as shown in the
following figure.
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 (if you need to use multiple units).
“Device Settings” Window
MT-500C Symbol in Programming Manager
Programming Manager is where programmers “program” a Creston control system
by assigning signals to symbols. The following diagram shows the MT-500C symbol
in the SIMPL Windows’ Programming Manager.

VT Pro-e
Unlimited control screen variations incorporating two and three-dimensional
graphics and text are possible and can be created with VT Pro-e, a design and
programming Windows-based software. A set of pages that make up a project can
be designed for each application. Each wireless handheld 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
handheld and programmed into the flash memory. The wireless handheld uses the
programmed project until another is uploaded from the PC. The PC may be
disconnected from the control processor except when loading a program.
The latest software version can be obtained from the Downloads | Software Updates
section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com). For additional software
information, refer to the help file provided with the software.
NOTE: The MT-500C is a one-way RF touchpanel without local logic. Therefore,
analog and serial signals do not exist, i.e. gauges, sliders, indirect text, and multimode are not available for this panel. Subpages also do not exist for this panel.
Converting projects from other panel types to an MT-500C will convert all subpages
into corresponding pages. The transparency option is not available for buttons or
graphics in a project. Animation effects are also not available in a project.

•
2D and 3D styles
•

NOTE: If you use a Return button in a project, selecting it will always return the
display to the first page of the project. For more information on new features and
enhancements in VT-Pro-e, refer to the VT Pro-e online help.
NOTE: The RF ID in a project must match the RF ID in the SIMPL Windows
project. Select the RF tab of “Project Properties” to select the correct RF ID.
“Project Properties” Window (RF Tab)
NOTE: You can program the bottom four hard keys on the MT-500C to perform
page flips by using the Hard Keys tab of “Project Properties”. You can also use this
tab to label the four blue buttons (labels) at the bottom of the display that represent
the four hard keys.

Loading a VT Pro-e Project
Before loading a VT Pro-e project, the serial cable supplied with the MT-500C must
be connected to the unit and the PC’s serial port. The graphics on the next page show
the two ways to plug the serial cable: directly in the MT-500C or in the docking
station that has a MT-500C docked to it.
NOTE: You cannot operate the MT-500C while a file is loading.
NOTE: If you load a file using VT-Pro-e, the software automatically sets the baud
rate to 115200.
