Isys®
Isys power and beauty are infused throughout Crestron’s entire touchpanel lineup.
Under the hood, the TPS-12L/15L/17L offers vibrant 24-bit color depth to produce
incredible 3D graphics, high-res images, translucence, dynamic text and graphics,
full-motion animations, multimode objects and dramatic transition effects, all with
astonishing speed.
Synapse™
Crestron’s exclusive Synapse Image Rendering Algorithm enables system
programmers to produce amazing graphics – faster and easier. Advanced antialiasing
delivers crisper, sharper objects and text. Enhanced 3D effects add new depth and
style. And because Synapse is native to the touchpanel, memory requirements and
upload time are substantially reduced.
High Performance Video
The TPS-12L/15L/17L can display full-motion video from an external AV source,
either full screen or in a scalable window. Motion adaptive deinterlacing brings out
the finest detail, minimizing visible scan lines and motion artifacts for a truly
remarkable picture. Advanced gamma correction and built-in time base correction
ensure accurate color reproduction and a jitter-free image. Two video inputs provide
for connectivity to QuickMedia and PVID video distribution switches (such as the
CNX-PVID8X3 or CNX-PVID8X4).
High Quality Audio
The high-powered biamplified speaker system provides amplification for external
AV sources and supports intercom functionality in combination with the integrated
microphone. Customized WAV files can be loaded on the touchpanel to add
dimension to the touchscreen graphics with personalized sounds, button feedback
and voice prompts. The TPS-12L/15L/17L touchpanels are also equipped with
balanced output for microphone audio that can be connected to a Crestron
CNX-BIPAD8 or similar Crestron CAT5 audio receiver.
Crestron Home® CAT5 AV
Connecting audio and video sources to the TPS-12L/15L/17L is facilitated using
inexpensive CAT5 wire, enabling direct connection to Crestron’s popular CAT5
balanced audio and video distribution switchers. A single video input port accepts
signals from composite, S-video and standard definition components sources over
wiring distances of up to 750 feet. A bidirectional audio port receives stereo program
audio and intercom signals and outputs audio from the internal microphone. To
facilitate direct connection of conventional video and audio devices, an external
interface module is included.

Crestron TPS-12L/15L/17L
QuickMedia™
The TPS-12L/15L/17L is also equipped with a single QuickMedia input port.
Through QuickMedia (QM), the TPS-12L/15L/17L interfaces directly with
Crestron’s QM-based MediaManager products using a single CAT5e type cable.
Over wiring distances of up to 300 feet, the QM input port accepts video signals
from composite, S-video and standard definition component sources along with
discrete audio signals from one stereo program source and up to two microphones.
For more information on QM applications, refer to the latest revision of the Crestron
MediaManager Applications Guide (Doc. 6244) which is available from the Crestron
website (http://www.crestron.com/manuals).
NOTE: The TPS-12L/15L/17L does not support RGB.
High-Speed Connectivity
Both Cresnet and high-speed Ethernet are standard on the TPS-12L/15L/17L,
providing for easy network integration and seamless communications with Crestron
control systems. In addition, a USB port is provided for future applications. The
"RS-232 Port for Touch Output" operation transmits touch coordinates to external
devices via RS-232 for “Touch-The-PC” and other functions.
Cresnet®
Cresnet is the communications backbone for many Crestron touchpanels, keypads,
lighting controls and other devices. The Cresnet bus is a simple, yet flexible 4-wire
network that provides rock-solid bidirectional communication and power for up to
252 Cresnet devices.
Memory
The TPS-12L/15L/17L touchpanels feature 128 MB DDR RAM and 32 MB Flash,
with a built-in Compact Flash slot that allows flash memory expansion up to 160
MB.
Versatile Flush-Mount Design
The TPS-12L/15L/17L is designed for flush-mount installation in a wall, lectern or
similar flat surface. A variety of mounting accessories is offered including optional
back box and 19” rack mount kit. Five backlit pushbuttons are also provided,
allowing for quick access to commonly used functions such as volume, home and
reset.

Setup
Network Wiring
When wiring the network, consider the following:
•
Use Crestron Certified Wire.
•
Use Crestron power supplies for Crestron equipment.
•
Provide sufficient power to the system.
CAUTION: Insufficient power can lead to unpredictable results or damage
to the equipment. Please use the Crestron Power Calculator to help calculate
how much power is needed for the system
(http://www.crestron.com/calculators).
•
For larger networks, use a Cresnet Hub/Repeater (CNXHUB) to maintain
signal quality.
For more details, refer to “Check Network Wiring” on page 55.
Ethernet
The TPS-12L/15L/17L also uses high-speed Ethernet for communications between
the device and a control system, computer, digital media server and other IP-based
devices.
For information on connecting Ethernet devices in a Crestron system, refer to the
latest version of the Crestron e-Control Reference Guide (Doc. 6052).
CAT5 Wiring
Category 5 (CAT5) wiring is a twisted pair cable designed for Ethernet networks.
These networks operate at speeds of up to 100 Megabits per second (Mbps) using the
100BaseT standard. Crestron takes advantage of this specification for a variety of
audio and video applications.
Crestron recommends using CresCAT, CresCAT-D or CresCAT-Q wiring solutions.
The following chart shows the maximum recommended cable lengths for various
signal formats.

QuickMedia Wiring
The Crestron QuickMedia cable (sold under the name “CresCAT-QM”) contains one
CAT5E cable and one Cresnet cable in Siamese jackets. Installation of any QM
device is as simple as installing CresCAT-QM wires from the output of one device to
the input of another. Installations are flexible, affordable and fast. For more
information, refer to the latest revision of the Crestron MediaManager Applications
Guide (Doc. 6244).
CresCAT-QM Cable
CresCAT-QM
Cable
NOTE: Do not untwist the two wires in a single pair for more than 1/3-1/2”
(0.84-1.27 cm) when making a connection. The twists are critical to canceling out
interference between the wires.
The aggregate cable length of a signal path originating at a QM transmitter and
terminating at the TPS-12L/15L/17L must not exceed 300 feet (90 meters). Video
signals may experience a loss of quality over very long lengths of cable. This
phenomenon is due to the added resistance and capacitance of longer cable lengths
and is not peculiar to either Crestron and/or QuickMedia systems. To ensure
sufficient bandwidth, the maximum aggregate cable length should not exceed 300
feet. The use of lower-resolution signals may allow increased cable length but must
be tested by the installer with the sources to be used. The QM pin assignment is
based on the EIA/TIA 568B RJ-45 Jack standard.
NOTE: When using CresCAT-QM wiring, four additional wires are included for
making Cresnet® connections.
When connecting multiple QM devices, the route between a QM origination point
(transmitter) and a QM endpoint (receiver) cannot have more than two midpoints
(e.g. QM-MD7x2 or other QM switchers). Refer to the diagram on the following
page when configuring a QM network.

Ventilation
The TPS-12L/15L/17L should be used in a well-ventilated area. The venting holes
should not be obstructed under any circumstances. If the TPS-12L/15L/17L is hot to
the touch, consider using forced air ventilation.
To prevent overheating, do not operate this product in an area that exceeds the
environmental temperature range listed in the table of specifications. Consideration
must be given if installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly since the operating
ambient temperature of the rack environment may be greater than the room ambient
temperature. Contact with thermal insulating materials should be avoided on all sides
of the unit.

Isys® Wall Mount Touchpanels
Make the necessary connections as called out in the illustration on the following
page. Refer to “Network Wiring” on page 21 before attaching the 4-position terminal
block connector. Apply power after all connections have been made.
CAUTION: Do not apply excessive pressure to the touchscreen display during
handling. Doing so can crack the screen and damage the touchpanel.
NOTE: The maximum continuous current from equipment under any external load
conditions shall not exceed a current limit that is suitable for the minimum wire
gauge used in interconnecting cables. The ratings on the connecting unit's supply
input should be considered to prevent overloading the wiring.
NOTE: The headphone output is for WAV and Line audio only. It does not carry
the microphone signal. Use the AUDIO OUT on the TPMC-CH-IMC for the
microphone signal.
NOTE: TPS-12L/15L/17L touchpanels include a TPMC-CH-IMC Interface Module
for system connection. The TPMC-CH-IMC serves as an interface between the
touchpanel, external A/V system, microphone output and the Cresnet system. Refer
to the TPMC-CH-IMC Operations Guide (Doc. 6345) for hardware hookup using
this interface.
NOTE: For CAT5 and QuickMedia connections, use Crestron Certified Wire.
NOTE: Crestron recommends an independent power supply for the touchpanel.

Recommended Cleaning
Keep the surface of the touchscreen free of dirt, dust or other materials that could
degrade optical properties. Long-term contact with abrasive materials can scratch the
surface, which may detrimentally affect image quality.
For best cleaning results use a clean, damp, non-abrasive cloth with any
commercially available non-ammonia glass cleaner. Bezels may not provide a
complete watertight seal. Therefore, apply cleaning solution to the cloth rather than
the surface of the touchscreen. Wipe touchscreen clean and avoid getting moisture
beneath the bezels.

Program Manager is the view where programmers “program” a Crestron control
system by assigning signals to symbols. The symbol can be viewed by double
clicking on the icon or dragging it into Detail View. Each signal in the symbol is
described in the SIMPL Windows help file (F1).
Programming with VisionTools Pro-e
Touchpanel screens should be created in VisionTools Pro-e to allow switching of
source signals to desired outputs as well as selection of the system mode. There are
no special programming requirements to use the functions of the TPS-12L/15L/17L
in a room-control system.
Multi-Mode Objects
Multi-mode objects offer highperformance programming!
The single most-advanced VT Pro-e high-performance programming technique
involving the TPS-12L/15L/17L is the concept of multi-mode objects. A multi-mode
object (i.e. button, legend, etc.) is an object drawn on a VT Pro-e page that can have
one or more active and inactive visible settings (modes).
For examples, refer to http://www.crestron.com/exampleprograms and search for
multi-mode object examples. This file contains the VT Pro-e touchpanel files and
SIMPL Windows files that illustrate the high-performance capabilities of multi-mode
objects.
WAV File Audio Messages
The TPS-12L/15L/17L touchpanels are capable of playing audio messages as system
prompts and responses. These files are recorded as WAV files on a PC using an
audio utility such as Sound Recorder that is packaged with Microsoft Windows
95/98/Me/XP/NT/ 2000™. Files from other sources may also be converted to an
acceptable format by using this or a similar utility. Many other audio utilities are
46 • Isys® Wall Mount Touchpanels: TPS-12L/15L/17L
Operations Guide – DOC. 6355A
Isys® Wall Mount Touchpanels
Crestron TPS-12L/15L/17L
available commercially or as shareware. The TPS-12L/15L/17L touchpanels only
accept the following WAV file format: PCM, 8KHz, mono, 8-bit. For more
information about how to use Sound Recorder, refer to its User’s Guide and
extensive help information provided with the software. Also refer to the help file in
VT Pro-e to learn how to use its audio tool, Sound Manager, to attach WAV files to a
touchpanel project.
Pre-recorded WAV files for voice prompts and responses are available from
Crestron. These files can be stored into and programmed for use in the touchpanel
directly or may be edited with the Sound Recorder. For example, the individual files
can be combined to create custom messages.
NOTE: Touchpanel WAV files can be obtained from the Wave LC Library of the
Crestron FTP site.
Bit Depth and File Size
A bit depth refers to the number of memory bits used to store color data for each
pixel in a raster image. A touchpanel raster image consists of a rectangular grid of
picture elements (pixels). Each pixel uses the same amount of memory to store its
color data. The amount of memory is called the bit depth of the image.
Greater bit depths are required to represent finer gradations of color. Increasing bit
depth necessarily increases file size. A black and white drawing requires only one bit
per pixel to store all the available color information. Using a 32-bit per pixel bit
depth for a black and white image increases the file size 32 times without adding
anything to the black and white image quality.
In an 8-bit per pixel system, the associated 8-bits of video memory for every screen
pixel contain a value referring to a location in an 8-bit color table. In this way any
one of the specific 256 color table locations is assigned to a pixel.
A 16-bit highcolor system is considered sufficient to provide life-like colors. It is
encoded using 5-bits to represent red, 5-bits to represent blue and (since the human
eye is more sensitive to the color green) 6-bits to represent 64 levels of green. These
can therefore be combined to provide 65,536 mixed colors (32 x 32 x 64 = 65,536).
In a 24-bit graphics display, the video memory allocates 24 bits for each pixel on the
screen enabling each pixel to take on any one of a possible 16.7 million colors. Each
24-bit value is composed of 8-bits for red, 8-bits for green and 8-bits for blue. These
triplets of 8-bit values are also referred to as the red, green and blue color planes. A
24-bit image is actually composed of three component images which combine to
create the truecolor picture. The reason this is called truecolor is that this is near the
maximum number of colors the human eye is able to detect.
Truecolor images are sometimes represented by a 32-bit value. The extra 8-bits do
not enhance the precision of the color representation but act as an alpha channel that
represents pixel translucence. The 32-bit truecolor has become popular on the
computer desktop to provide effects such as translucent windows, fading menus and
shadows.
In graphics intensive applications such as touchpanels, raising or lowering the color
depth of the displayed graphics can achieve a balance of performance and quality.
Lower color depths do not require as much frame buffer memory or display
bandwidth, allowing them to be generated and displayed more quickly. Increasing
color depth results in higher color quality at the expense of display speed and
responsiveness. By using mostly 8-bit or 16-bit graphics and holding the
32-bit graphics to a minimum (e.g. for a family photo, etc.), you can create a
sophisticated project that will fit in the memory space provided and have the
touchpanel remain very responsive.

When creating a VT Pro-e project you can elect to compress and reduce the image
size in the “Page Properties” window for the entire page and/or perform the same
function of reducing the image size using the “Image Properties” window. A
reduction in image size will save a considerable amount of memory space for your
project.
In VT Pro-e, the Compress checkbox permits the image to be compressed when
compiling. The 16 Bits checkbox converts a 24-bit or 32-bit image to 16 bits. This
conversion to a 16-bit image may cause the loss of some subtle shading. To
compensate for this, use the dithering to simulate the original shading. Various
dithering types are available. Refer to the following illustrations.

MultiByte International Characters
Most languages use a single byte of eight bits to represent a character, e.g. English,
French, German, Hebrew, Russian, Thai, etc.
Multibyte character fonts require more than the usual eight bits to specify a
character. This occurs when a language has more than 256 characters (28) in a font.
For example, Chinese fonts contain several thousand characters. Other multibyte
languages include Japanese and Korean.
There are two separate applications with multibyte characters – static text on buttons
and indirect text on buttons. No Isys touchpanel firmware changes are required in
either case.
Indirect text on a button is entered in VT Pro-e and the actual string to be displayed
is entered in SIMPL Windows. As of this publication date only completely single
byte or completely multibyte strings may be entered or they will not be compiled
correctly in SIMPL Windows. In other words, you cannot enter Chinese characters
interspersed with numbers. You can enter Chinese characters or numbers in separate
strings or you can pad each number with “\x00” to make it multibyte and then
combine it with Chinese characters in the same string.
Of course you can always use the workaround of showing a graphic that displays the
string but it is not dynamic. To compile and use multibyte characters it is essential
that the operating system understand the language. Windows XP is available in many
international languages and add-on software is available for other versions of
Windows.

Check Network Wiring
Use the Right Wire
In order to ensure optimum performance over the full range of your installation
topology, Crestron Certified Wire and only Crestron Certified Wire may be used.
Failure to do so may incur additional charges if support is required to identify
performance deficiencies because of using improper wire.
Calculate Power
CAUTION: Use only Crestron power supplies for Crestron equipment. Failure to
do so could cause equipment damage or void the Crestron warranty.
CAUTION: Provide sufficient power to the system. Insufficient power can lead to
unpredictable results or damage to the equipment. Please use the Crestron Power
Calculator to help calculate how much power is needed for the system
(http://www.crestron.com/calculators).
When calculating the length of wire for a particular Cresnet run, the wire gauge and
the Cresnet power usage of each network unit to be connected must be taken into
consideration. Use Crestron Certified Wire only. If Cresnet units are to be daisychained on the run, the Cresnet power usage of each network unit to be daisychained must be added together to determine the Cresnet power usage of the entire
chain. If the unit is home-run from a Crestron system power supply network port, the
Cresnet power usage of that unit is the Cresnet power usage of the entire run. The
wire gauge and the Cresnet power usage of the run should be used in the following
equation to calculate the cable length value on the equation’s left side.

Cable Length Equation
40,000
L<
RxP
Where: L = Length of run (or chain) in feet
R = 6 Ohms (Crestron Certified Wire: 18 AWG (0.75 MM 2 ))
or 1.6 Ohms (Cresnet HP: 12 AWG (4 MM 2 ))
P = Cresnet power usage of entire run (or chain)
Make sure the cable length value is less than the value calculated on the right side of
the equation. For example, a Cresnet run using 18 AWG Crestron Certified Wire and
drawing 20 watts should not have a length of run more than 333 feet. If Cresnet HP
is used for the same run, its length could extend to 1250 feet.
NOTE: All Crestron certified 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.
Strip and Tin Wire
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 and tighten the retaining
screw. Repeat the procedure for the other three conductors.
Add Hubs
For larger networks (i.e., greater than 28 network devices), it may become necessary
to add a Cresnet Hub/Repeater (CNXHUB) to maintain signal quality throughout the
network. Also, for networks with lengthy cable runs it may be necessary to add a
Hub/Repeater after only 20 devices.
