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. Operations & Installation Guide - DOC. 6200 Decorator Wall Panels: C2N-DBN12 & C2N-DBF12 • 1 Decorator Wall Panels 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%.

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. Operations & Installation Guide - DOC. 6200 Decorator Wall Panels: C2N-DBN12 & C2N-DBF12 • 7 Decorator Wall Panels Crestron C2N-DBN12 & C2N-DBF12 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 below. Wire Gauge Values RESISTANCE (R) WIRE GAUGE 4 16 6 18 10 20 15 22 13 Doubled CAT5 8.7 Tripled CAT5 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. 8 • Decorator Wall Panels: C2N-DBN12 & C2N-DBF12 Operations & Installation Guide - DOC. 6200 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.

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). 10 • Decorator Wall Panels: C2N-DBN12 & C2N-DBF12 Operations & Installation Guide - DOC. 6200 Crestron C2N-DBN12 & C2N-DBF12 Decorator Wall Panels “Set Net ID by TSID” Window 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. Serial Number to TSID Conversion This utility is useful in a case where there are multiple devices of the same type on a network, you need to locate a particular one, you know the TSID but not the serial number, and your site installation list is based on device serial numbers.

Direct software related suggestions and/or complaints to Crestron via email (software@ crestron.com). Do not forward any queries to this address. Instead refer to “Further Inquiries” on page 30 for assistance. 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.

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.

This section explains how to create a SIMPL Windows program that includes a wall panel. 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. 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. Expanded PRO2 System Tree C2Net-Device Slot in Configuration Manager To incorporate a C2N-DBF12 into the system, drag the C2N-DBF12 from the Wired Keypad folder of the Device Library and drop it in System Views. The PRO2 system tree displays the C2N-DBF12 in Slot 9, with a default Net ID of 71 as shown in the illustration on the next page. 16 • Decorator Wall Panels: C2N-DBN12 & C2N-DBF12 Operations & Installation Guide - DOC. 6200 Crestron C2N-DBN12 & C2N-DBF12 Decorator Wall Panels NOTE: The first C2N-DBF12 in a system is preset with a Net ID of 71 when its symbol is dragged into the upper pane of System Views.

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. 20 • Decorator Wall Panels: C2N-DBN12 & C2N-DBF12 Operations & Installation Guide - DOC. 6200 Crestron C2N-DBN12 & C2N-DBF12 Decorator Wall Panels 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).
