The SIMPL Windows interface provides two workspaces: the Configuration Manager, for configuring the control system, touchpanels, and controlled network devices; and Program Manager, for designing the logic and functionality of the control system. In addition, you can use the powerful Crestron Toolbox utility to accomplish multiple system tasks, such as uploading the program to the control system and performing diagnostic functions. Together with the Crestron Database, these tools provide you with the essential components you need to program the MT-1000C. NOTE: The MT-1000C is shipped with a CD that contains ActiveSync. This must be installed, and your computer rebooted, before running Toolbox. Refer to page 2. NOTE: The information in this section assumes that the reader has knowledge of SIMPL Windows. If not, refer to the extensive help information provided with the software. This section describes a sample SIMPL Windows program that includes an MT-1000C remote control. NOTE: In the following programming example, a PRO2 2-Series processor is used as the control system. 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.

MT-1000C Symbol in Programming Manager Programming Manager is where programmers “program” a Creston control system by assigning signals to symbols. The following describes the MT-1000C symbol in the SIMPL Windows Programming Manager. Detail View of the MT-1000C in SIMPL Windows’ Programming Manager The MT-1000C can transmit up to 999 unique signal joins to a control system. Every button can be programmed with multiple functions. 8 • 3.8 Inch RF Remote: MT-1000C Programming Guide - DOC. 6330A Crestron MT-1000C 3.8 Inch RF Remote The pushbuttons and thumbpad hard keys have fixed join numbers corresponding to the <press1> to <press16> outputs of the touchpanel symbol. NOTE: A hard key button continuously sends signal pulses as long as the button is held (except the MAIN button, join 16 is a momentary pulse). NOTE: If a hard key is not defined, the button will have no function when pressed. Example Program An example program for the MT-1000C is available from the “Example Program” section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com/exampleprograms). Search for the file named MT-1000C.ZIP. Programming with VisionTools® Pro-e VisionTools Pro-e (VT Pro-e), a design and programming Windows-based software, permits the creation of unlimited control screen variations incorporating two and three-dimensional graphics, text and sounds (recorded as WAV files). A set of pages, which make up a project, can be designed for each MT-1000C touchscreen application. Each page contains objects such as custom control graphics, two and three-dimensional buttons which allow the user to interface with the control system via join numbers. NOTE: Shaded buttons are not supported in this application. NOTE: The Clock/Date object does not have a frame, is always rectangular, has a limited font set, and does not have a selectable text style. NOTE: Transparency is not supported for object face or graphic resources. NOTE: The MT-1000C does not support sub-pages. Unjoined objects are not interfaced with the system and thus cannot initiate any control system functions. The completed and compiled project is uploaded to the touchscreen via the File | Upload Project command. The MT-1000C uses the programmed project until another project is uploaded from the PC. Programs cannot be extracted from the touchscreen. The PC may be disconnected from the control system or panel except during programming upload. Crestron’s Synapse™ image-rendering algorithm supports advanced antialiasing for crisper, sharper images for all objects, new frame styles (neon and raised), and new text styles (embossed, raised, and shadow). Shaded style is not supported for the MT-1000C. The Synapse algorithm allows the touchpanel to process these styles internally, without the use of large bitmap files that increase project size and upload time. Synapse delivers high impact touchpanel graphics more efficiently than ever. To utilize Synapse graphics, you must use VT Pro-e version 3.4.x or later. For additional software information, refer to the help file provided with the software. The latest version of VT Pro-e can be obtained from the Crestron website. The RF ID is used for communicating with the RF receiver. VT Pro-e can also be used to program page jumps for soft key presses or hard buttons.
