Decorator Wall Panels:
C2N-DBN12 and C2N-DBF12
Introduction
Features and Functions
The numeric (C2N-DBN12) and function (C2N-DBF12) Decorator Wall
Panels are wall-mounted single-gang user interfaces that can be part of a
Crestron® solution total control system. The panels are standard Cresnet®
devices, and provide finger-tip control when the control system is
properly programmed using SIMPL Windows, Application Builder or
D3 Pro software. Each of these panels is available in three colors:
almond, black, and white. The letter at the end of the product name, ‘A’,
‘B’, or ‘W’, denotes the color (e.g., a C2N-DBN12A is an almond
numeric panel.) For simplicity within this guide, the letter designating
color is omitted. Since the internal functions of the wall panels are
identical, all references in this guide to either unit apply equally to both,
except where noted.
The C2N-DBF12 serves as a source keypad. The C2N-DBN12 can be
used to expand the capabilities of the source keypad, and is ideal for
audio device functions such as selecting a particular CD track number or
a certain CD from a CD changer.
NOTE: Wall panels can also be mounted in multi-gang electrical boxes.
Functional Summary
• Ergonomic buttons are easy to read from any angle
• LED indicators provide visual feedback of commands
• Panels accommodate standard faceplates
• Panels can be mounted singly, or in multi-gang configurations.

Crestron C2N-DBN12 & C2N-DBF12
Faceplates are not supplied; the wall panels accept faceplates that can be
obtained in any store selling lighting supplies and accessories, making it
easy for the wall panels to match the appearance of the site’s other switch
and outlet styles.
The buttons have fixed text. Additional source buttons for the C2NDBF12 are also provided (refer to illustration on page 5).
All buttons on the wall panel are functionally identical and have light
emitting diodes (LEDs) that serve as user feedback indicators. Each
LED’s illumination (on/off) is independently addressable, and is
programmable using SIMPL Windows.
In the program, the intensity level for all of the button LEDs can be set
from 0 to 100%. Refer to “Wall Panel Symbol in Programming Manager”
on page 18 for details.

Button Replacement
Replacing/changing the removable buttons in a wall panel is a simple
process. Refer to the illustrations above and the following procedures.
1. If the wall panel is installed in an electrical box, remove the two
1-inch securing screws, carefully pull the wall panel from the
electrical box, and disconnect the Cresnet cable.
2. Remove the four screws that attach the divider, and remove the
divider.
CAUTION: The removable buttons fit snugly on the rubber membrane
and must be removed carefully to avoid pulling the membrane from the
unit. Once the membrane is detached, you may be unable to reattach it.
3. While holding adjacent buttons in place, carefully pull the
button(s) to be replaced from the rubber membrane.

4. Carefully press the replacement button(s) in place, make sure LED
window(s) orientation is correct, and attach the divider using the
four screws removed in step 2.
5. If applicable, reinstall the wall panel in the electrical box.
Industry Compliance
As of the date of manufacture, the keypads 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 for 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 network 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 unit to be daisy-chained must be
added together to determine the power factor of the entire chain. If the
unit is a home-run from a Crestron system power supply network port,
the power factor of that unit is the power factor of the entire run. 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.

NOTE: All Cresnet wiring must consist of two twisted-pairs. One
twisted pair is the +24V conductor and the GND conductor and the other
twisted pair is the Y conductor and the Z conductor.
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 plug and tighten the retaining
screw. Repeat the procedure for the other three conductors.
Identity Code
Every equipment and user interface within the network requires a unique
identity code (Net ID). These codes are two-digit hexadecimal numbers
from 03 to FE. The Net ID of each unit must match an ID code specified
in the SIMPL Windows program. Refer to “Setting the Net ID in Device
Settings” on page 17 for details of the SIMPL Windows procedure.

Crestron C2N-DBN12 & C2N-DBF12
Refer to the
note on page
20 for a
definition of
Viewport.
Decorator Wall Panels
The Net ID of the wall panel has been factory set to 71. The Net IDs of
multiple wall panels in the same system must be unique. Net IDs are
changed from a personal computer (PC) via the Crestron Viewport.
NOTE: For detailed information on establishing communication
between the PC and control system, refer to “Communication Settings”
on page 21. If communication cannot be established, refer to the
“Troubleshooting Communications” section in the respective
Operations Guide for the control system.
There are two different methods—Method A or Method B—for setting
the Net ID:
Method A (Cresnet address-settable ID), described below, applies to
devices in a Cresnet system with a CNX control system or with a 2Series control system and requires that a single unit be the only network
device connected to the control system.
Method B (Touch Settable ID or TSID), which begins on page 10,
applies to all TSID-ready devices in a Cresnet system with 2-Series
control system upgrade file (CUZ) version 3.029 or later. TSID
functionality makes it possible for the control system to recognize a
network device via its serial number, which is stored in the device’s
memory. This method does not require that any devices be disconnected
from the network; Net IDs may be set with the entire Cresnet system
intact. This method requires the use of the Crestron Viewport version
3.35 or later.
Use the appropriate method to set the Net ID.
Method A (Cresnet address-settable ID)
1. Ensure that the device requiring a Net ID change is the only
unit connected to the control system.
2. Open the Crestron Viewport.
3. From the Viewport menu, select Functions | Set Network ID.
The software checks the baud rate and then opens the "Set
Network ID" window.
4. In the "Set Network ID" window, select the device requiring a
Net ID change from the Current Network Devices text window.

5. Select the new Net ID for the device from the Choose the new
network ID for the selected device (Hex): text box.
6. Click Set ID to initiate the change. This will display the "ID
command has been sent" window.
7. In the "Command Complete" window, click OK.
8. In the Current Network Devices text window, verify the new
Net ID code.
9. In the "Set Network ID" window, click Close.
NOTE: The new Net ID code may also be verified by selecting
Diagnostic | Report Network Devices in the Viewport (alternately,
select F4).
10. Repeat this procedure for each additional network device
requiring a Net ID change.
Method B (Touch Settable ID)
Before using this method, you should have a list of all current network
devices and their Net IDs, to avoid assigning duplicate IDs.
Set Net ID by TSID
These procedures are for TSID-enabled network devices during the initial
configuration of a Cresnet system or when such devices are being
added/replaced.
1. Ensure that all network devices are connected to the control
system.
2. Open the Crestron Viewport version 3.35 or later.
3. From the Viewport menu, select Functions | Assign Cresnet
ID by Serial Number. The “Set Net ID by TSID” window
appears. The window is first displayed with the data fields
empty.
4. Click on the Search for Touch Settable Devices button. The
system searches the network and lists all TSID-enabled devices
found. The list is similar to the report produced by pressing F4
(Report Network Devices); the first eight digits of each line
constitute the TSID number (hexadecimal form of the serial
number).

5. Enter either the serial number or TSID number of the device
that requires a change. The list scrolls to and highlights the
device listing. The listing should show the device’s default
Cresnet ID (a.k.a. Net ID).
6. Enter the Cresnet ID that the device should be set to and click
OK. The number you enter should appear on the list.
CAUTION: This function does not prevent you from setting duplicate
IDs. Be sure to check current assignments before entering the desired
Cresnet ID number.

Setup is easy thanks to Crestron’s Windows-based programming
software. The Crestron Application Builder™ (AppBuilder) creates a
complete project, with no special programming required. Crestron
AppBuilder completes all necessary programming for a base system
including all touchpanel screens and the control system program. Once
Crestron AppBuilder creates the project, the system interfaces and
program logic can be customized. It can easily be modified with Crestron
development tools (i.e., SIMPL Windows and Crestron VisionTools®
Pro-e (VT Pro-e) software packages).
The program output of Crestron AppBuilder is a SIMPL Windows
program with much of the functionality encapsulated in macros and
templates. 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 the Crestron
AppBuilder or develop original touchpanel screen designs.

The following are the earliest useable software version requirements for
the PC:
• (Optional) Application Builder version 1.0.17 or later. Requires
SIMPL Windows.
• (Optional) D3 Pro version 1.0 or later.
• SIMPL Windows version 2.04.11 or later, with Library Update
file 227. Requires SIMPL+® Cross Compiler version 1.1.
• Crestron Database version 15.9.8 or later.
Programming with Crestron AppBuilder or D3 Pro
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 all touchpanel projects and control
system logic.
Crestron D3 Pro similarly offers automatic programming for lighting and
HVAC projects.
Both Crestron AppBuilder and D3 Pro integrate fully with Crestron's
suite of software development tools, including SIMPL Windows, VT
Pro-e, and the Crestron Database. Both access 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.

Crestron C2N-DBN12 & C2N-DBF12
Example Program
An example program for the wall panel is available from the Crestron
FTP site (ftp://ftp.crestron.com/Examples). Search for C2N-DBF12.ZIP.
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 and firmware to the wall panels
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: The Crestron Viewport is available as a pull-down command
from SIMPL Windows and VT Pro-e (Tools | Viewport), or as a
standalone utility. 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 to the control system, or upgrade the firmware of the C2NDBF12. However, before attempting to upload or upgrade, it is necessary
to establish communications.

Communication Settings
NOTE: For laptops and other PCs without a built-in RS-232 port,
Crestron recommends the use of PCMCIA cards, rather than USB-toserial adapters. If a USB-to-serial adapter must be used, Crestron has
tested the following devices with good results:
Belkin (large model) F5U103
I/O Gear GUC232A
Keyspan USA-19QW
Other models, even from the same manufacturer, may not yield the same
results.
The procedure in this section provides details for RS-232 communication
between the PC and the control system. If TCP/IP communication is
preferred, consult the latest version of the Crestron e-Control Reference
Guide (Doc. 6052) or the respective Operations Guide for the control
system. These documents are available from the Downloads | Product
Manuals section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com). Refer to
the figure on the next page for a typical connection diagram when
uploading files.
Note: Use a standard DB9 male to female “straight-through” cable.
