FIG. 2 MVP-5200i Connector Locations
With the unit facing you, the mini-USB port (for programming and downloading
firmware, as well as connecting USB headphones using the AMX-provided adaptor
cable) and the DC power jack are located on the lower left side of the device. The
connector for the Table Charging Station is located on the bottom of the device.
The MVP-5200i is the first G4 device to support a new Ethernet over USB driver for
panel downloads and firmware updates. This means that the device can connect to the
Internet through its mini-USB port instead of through a standard Ethernet port.
In addition to its speaker, the MVP-5200i also utilizes its mini-USB port as a connector
for standard headphones or headsets. These headphones must use a mini-USB plug
or adapter, such as the MVP-HP USB 1/8” Adapter, in order to utilize this feature.
While standard input/output headsets may be used in lieu of headphones, the
headset may only be used for output. While you may receive sound from the
headset, its microphone will not function. Always use the MVP-5200i’s microphone
for receiving sound.
WARNING: Although firmware upgrades can be conducted over a wireless
Ethernet connection, transferring firmware KIT files over a direct USB
connection is recommended, and only when the panel is connected to a power
supply. If battery power or wireless connection fails during a firmware
upgrade, the panel flash file system may become corrupted.
Navigation Wheel
The MVP-5200i device uses a button wheel for commands made other than through
the touchscreen. This wheel, known as a navigation wheel, is located in the upper
right corner of the device. Used with the touchscreen, the navigation wheel allows
scrolling and adjusting by turning the wheel with a thumb or finger and then pressing
down on one of the wheel’s compass points for up, down, left, and right. The wheel is
sensitive enough to adjust levels with one-third of a rotation. The center of the
navigation wheel is also a button: for example, pressing down directly upon the
wheel center could be used for the equivalent of an "Enter" keystroke.
If the MVP-5200i needs to be shut down or reset for any reason, press and hold
down the wheel center button until the popup stating “panel shutting down” appears
or the screen goes dark. When in its Standby Power Mode, the MVP-5200i may only
be returned to its Awake state by touching the screen.
The navigation wheel also lights up depending upon the Power Mode it is in at the
time. The navigation wheel LED lights when the touch screen is on and turns off
when the touchscreen is off, with the exception of when the device is charging. The
flashing during recharging may be disabled via the device’s on-board Setup page.
For more information, please see the MVP-5200i Modero ViewPoint Touch Panel
User Manual, available at
Turning on the MVP-5200i
The MVP-5200i uses one of two methods to turn it on. These use either the
navigation wheel or the touchscreen. To learn which method works for your panel:
Press any of the navigation wheel’s compass points and hold until the AMX
splash screen appears on the touchscreen.
If the navigation wheel does not respond, press the touchscreen and hold until
the AMX splash screen appears on the touchscreen.
Accessing the Setup Pages
The MVP-5200i features on-board Setup pages. Use the options in the Setup pages
to access panel information and make various configuration changes.
To access the Setup pages, press the center button on the navigation wheel and
hold for three seconds. A popup screen opens that reads “Release button now to
enter the Setup Pages. Continue holding to enter Calibration.” Releasing the center
button at that time opens the main Setup page.

Setting the Panel’s Device Number
In the Protected Setup page:
Press the Device Number field to open the Device Number keypad.
Enter a unique Device Number assignment for the panel, and press Done to
return to the Protected Setup page. The Device Number range is 1 - 32000,
and the default is 10001.
Configuring the Panel’s Wireless IP Settings

A USB connection is a direct connection from the panel’s mini-USB port to a
corresponding USB port on the PC (acting as a Virtual Master).
A Wireless Ethernet connection involves indirect communication from the
panel to a Master via a wireless connection to the network.
Upgrading Firmware
For the purpose of panel downloads, the MVP-5200i’s download procedure is not
compatible with other AMX panel devices. This is due to the unique configuration of
the device.
The first major change from other AMX devices is that the MVP-5200i uses dynamic
Setup Pages for its displays. Instead of requiring a separate Setup Page project built
within TPDesign 4, the MVP-5200i uses only a single set of Setup Pages for all of its
supported resolutions.
To enable a single Setup Page project to support all resolutions, it will be necessary
to include images for the largest supported resolution with the Setup Page project
and to scale the images to fit for lower resolutions. This modification would apply to
state-level bitmaps and chameleon images, whereas previously, image scaling has
only applied to dynamic images.
For more information, refer to the Upgrading Firmware section of the MVP-5200i
Modero Viewpoint Touch Panel User Manual, available at
Cleaning the Touch Overlay, Case, and Navigation Wheel
Always use a clean cotton cloth and a spray bottle containing water or a vinegarbased cleaner when cleaning the MVP-5200i, as alcohol-based cleaners can
damage the device. Do not directly spray the device: instead, spray the cloth to
clean the touch screen overlay and navigation wheel. Do NOT use an abrasive of
any type to clean the MVP-5200i, as this may permanently damage or remove the
device’s finish.
Battery Life and Replacement
The battery powering the MVP-5200i is designed for upwards of 300 deep discharge
rechargings. Regular shallow rechargings will extensively increase expected battery
life, and the device should be stored in either a Table Charging Station or Wall
Charging Station when not in use to keep it at an optimum charge. The battery has
reached its effective end of life after it can no longer hold more than a 70 percent
Proper Battery Maintenance
NOTE: To insure maximum performance and reliability of your AMX Wireless
Touch Panel, please insure that a full charge is performed every 3 months if
not used regularly. If a battery is left uncharged beyond this time frame, it may
result in premature battery lifespan degradation and will require replacement.
Wireless Communication Using a DHCP Address
In the Protected Setup page:
Select Wireless Settings. Wireless communication is set within the IP Settings
section of this page.
Toggle the DHCP/Static field (from the IP Settings section) until the choice
cycles to DHCP. This action causes all fields in the IP Settings section other
than Host Name to be greyed-out. Once the panel is rebooted, these values
are obtained by the unit and displayed in the DNS fields after power-up.
NOTE: DHCP will register the unique MAC Address (factory assigned) on
the panel and once the communication setup process is complete,
assign IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway values from the DHCP
