CP-20A Control Panel Operation
Introduction
Introducing the CP-20A
This section is specifically written for AutoPatch enclosures with either a front or
remote CP-20A Control Panel. The CP-20A is used for controlling the system’s
switches and system attributes. Although control panels are optional, we
recommend one per system for system verification, redundant control, and
troubleshooting.
Figure 1 illustrates an Optima Distribution Matrix with a CP-20A Control Panel.
Other models may vary slightly in appearance.
Figure 1: Front view of an Optima with a CP-20A Control Panel
Note: AutoPatch enclosures can also be controlled using BCS (Basic Control
Structure) commands transmitted through an external controller; see the BCS
Serial Control Protocol or Serial Control Operation section of this binder.
AutoPatch control software can also be used to control an AutoPatch system;
see the AutoPatch Software & Documentation CD for more information.

Introducing the CP-20A
Introduction
CP-20A Control Panel
A CP-20A Control Panel has a graphic LCD with a dynamic menu area,
dynamic menu keys, a Function key, and a Take key.

An LCD with a backlight displays instructions and selection entry fields. The
backlight automatically turns off after 15 minutes of inactivity. Press any key
to reactivate the light.
Note: To adjust the contrast of the LCD, see Chapter 7, “Adjusting LCD
Contrast.”
Dynamic Menu Area
The menu displays different command options across the bottom of the LCD,
depending on which screen is active. These options can be accessed using the
corresponding dynamic menu keys. The menu options are multilevel with the
ability to display custom input (source) and output (destination) names (labels).
The default channel name (e.g., O_Ch:0003 for Output 3) appears unless the
name has been modified in the configuration file* using X NConnect (see
Chapter 8 of the Installation & Setup section of this binder).
* The configuration file (.xcl file) contains routing and control information for
a system and is modified with XNConnect, which graphically displays the file.
Both the configuration file and XNConnect are on the AutoPatch Software &
Documentation CD.

section of the dynamic menu area. The four keys across the bottom allow you to
select from the corresponding commands across the lower part of the screen.
The four keys on the right side of the LCD are used to scroll through lists, adjust
sliders, select an action, or return to the previous screen. The associated
commands on the right side of the Dynamic Menu Area vary by screen and
include the following:
q
Back key – Use to return to the last screen. This key will not undo a
completed operation.
q
Arrow keys – Use to scroll through lists and adjust sliders. When scrolling,
press and hold an arrow key to increase scrolling speed. When at the bottom
of a list, press the down key to access the top of the list. When at the top of a
list, press the up key to access the bottom of the list. Scrolling from the
bottom of a list may sometimes be more efficient depending on the matrix
size.
q
Select key – Use to enter a selection. This key will not execute operations.
Function Key
The Function key accesses the Main Menu screen. From the Main Menu, the
Function key accesses additional menu options. From any other screen, it returns
to the Main Menu.
Take Key
The Take key functions much like the Enter key on a computer keyboard.
Pressing the Take key instructs the system to execute a selected operation. Prior
to pressing the Take key, the individual operation component(s) must be selected
by pressing the Select key.
CP-20A operations combine the following four basic tasks:
To choose a command, press the dynamic menu key along the bottom that
corresponds with the command you want to choose.
To locate values for fields (such as virtual matrix, input, output, and preset
values), press the dynamic menu keys on the right that correspond to the arrows.
To enter a selection, press the Select key. (The key that corresponds to the
Select option on the dynamic menu area is found on the right.)
To execute an operation, press the Take key.

CP-20A Control Panel Operation
A switch is an active connection between an input (source) device and one or
more output (destination) devices. The signals routed in a switching operation are
individual signals or groups of individual signals coming through the connectors
on the rear of an enclosure. Executing a preset is a quick way to execute multiple
switches at a time. For information on presets, see page 5-1.
Switches are executed on the default virtual matrix unless otherwise specified.
When specifying a virtual matrix, be sure it includes all the signals you want to
route. The number of the virtual matrix (VM) that operations are currently being
performed on is displayed in the upper-right of the display. If you need to change
the virtual matrix, see “Changing the Virtual Matrix” on page 2-7.
You can return to the Main Menu screen at any time by pressing the Function
key.
Note: In each switch command, you can enter multiple output signals, but only
one input signal. However, you must select the input first in order to select
multiple outputs. The Take key must be pressed for the switch operation to
execute.

7. Press the Take key to execute the operation.
The switch to Output 15: Main Monitor Rm B from Input
10: DVD #1 Control Rm occurs as soon as the Take key is pressed.
The system returns to the Change Output screen.
8. Make additional switches.
Or press the Function key to return to the Main Menu screen.
Virtual matrices are defined in XNConnect and stored in the system’s
configuration file (see the XNConnect Help file). Systems usually have a virtual
matrix that contains all signals, so that any input can be routed to any or all
outputs. The same system may have other VMs that switch only audio signals or
only video signals.
Occasionally you may need to execute switches (or other operations) on a virtual
matrix other than the current virtual matrix. Changing the virtual matrix does not
change the default virtual matrix. The system will revert to switching on the
default virtual matrix when the power is cycled.
The example below gives the steps for changing from routing signals on the
“Audio follow Video,” virtual matrix, to routing on the “Audio, Stereo” virtual
matrix that switches only audio signals. Although this example accesses the VM
(Virtual Matrix) option from the Change menu, this option can be selected from
most of the command menus found along the bottom of the screen.
To change the virtual matrix:
1. At the Main Menu screen, choose the Change command.
If the Change command is not available, press the Function key to view
additional Main Menu options.

Disconnecting Switches
Disconnecting a switch deactivates the connection between an input (source)
signal and one or more output (destination) devices. Disconnecting an input
disconnects all outputs receiving that source signal. You can disconnect a switch
by selecting either inputs or outputs from the CP-20A Control Panel.
If you need to change the virtual matrix, see “Changing the Virtual Matrix” on
page 2-7.
Note: You can select multiple inputs or outputs by scrolling through the list and
pressing the Select key. The Select key functions as a toggle switch, selecting
and unselecting inputs or outputs in the list each time it is pressed. The Take key
must be pressed for the disconnect operation to execute.

CP-20A Control Panel Operation
Executing Presets
Global and local presets are predefined sets of switches that can be easily executed.
Local Presets
At the time of this publication, local presets cannot be executed using the CP-20A
Control Panel. Local presets are defined in XNConnect (see the XNConnect Help
file) and can be executed using BCS commands. More information on local presets
and other operations executed with BCS commands can be found in the BCS Serial
Control Protocol section of this binder.
Global Presets
Global presets allow you to replicate an entire system state. The system state
includes all current signal routings (regardless of the number of virtual matrices
involved) and any digital gain and/or volume settings. A global preset number is
assigned to a system state during runtime using the CP-20A Control Panel (or BCS
commands) and stored by the system. That system state can then be restored at any
time by selecting the assigned global preset number.
Note: We strongly recommend keeping track of the number used and the system’s
routing state for each global preset. If another system state is assigned a previously
used number, the former state will be automatically overwritten.
Global presets cannot be defined (created) in XNConnect.
Caution: If the system is reconfigured, global presets may be lost, depending on
the method used to load the new configuration file (see the X NConnect Help file).
The example on page 5-2 defines the current system state as 3: Global Preset 3 .
The example on page 5-4 executes 3: Global Preset 3 , which restores the
system to the state it was in when the global preset was defined.
CP-20A Control Panel Operation
5-1
Executing Presets
The CP-20A stores up to 64 global presets and displays 64 numbers. Since the
panel can be used to operate different types of matrix switchers, check the product
documentation for any limitations to the number of supported global presets.

Adjusting Audio
Some audio boards in AutoPatch Distribution Matrices offer optional volume
control and digital input gain adjustment features. If your system contains these
boards, output volume or digital input gain can be adjusted using either the
CP-20A control panel or BCS commands sent through a serial controller. For
more information on audio adjustment using BCS commands, see the BCS Serial
Control Protocol section of this binder.
When volume or digital input gain is adjusted for a device on one virtual matrix,
the adjustment remains in effect for that device on all virtual matrices switching
audio signals.
You can return to the Main Menu screen at any time by pressing the

Adjusting Digital Input Gain
If your system has digital input gain control, adjustments (within the gain range
for the specific audio input board) can be made at any time during normal
operation. When audio is adjusted for a device on one virtual matrix, the
adjustment remains in effect for that device on all virtual matrices switching
audio signals.
Caution: We strongly recommend that digital input gain adjustments be made
only by a qualified dealer.
The purpose of controlling input gain (the nominal level of the signal from the
source device) is to allow source signals of various amplitudes to be equalized
before they are routed and the volume is adjusted. Equalizing source levels
provides a consistent reference for volume adjustments and eliminates jumps
when routing a new source to a destination.
Typical uses for input gain include switching consumer and professional grade
audio equipment (whose levels can vary noticeably) in the same matrix switcher.
Input gain adjustment is also used for equalizing amplitudes between balanced
and unbalanced source inputs.
The example below adjusts the input gain for Input (source)
26: Main Mic Mtg Rm A on Virtual Matrix 2.
To adjust input gain to equalize input levels:
1. At the Main Menu screen, choose the Audio command.

CP-20A Control Panel Operation
A configuration file (.xcl file) is a text file containing a system’s routing and
control information that has been previously downloaded to the CPU in your
matrix switcher before shipment. Each enclosure’s CPU references this
information during any type of switching operation. Unless the configuration file
has been modified, you will not need to reload it. Two of the most common
configuration file modifications are creating custom names (labels) and defining
local presets. For more information on configuration files and how to modify
them, see Chapter 8 of the Installation & Setup section of this binder.
If the configuration file has been changed, it must be downloaded to your
enclosure’s CPU (see Chapter 8 of the Installation & Setup section of this
binder) and then uploaded to the control panel.
To upload the new configuration file from the enclosure’s CPU to the CP-20A
control panel, follow the instructions on page 8-2.

Rack Installation
CP-20A Remote Panels are designed to fit in a standard EIA 19 in. (48.26 cm)
rack.
Once the CP-20A Remote is wired, follow the rack installation instructions
below. If linking multiple panels, see “Linking Multiple Panels” on page 10-5
before installing the panels in a rack.
Note: The optimum viewing angle for the screen is eye level.
To install the CP-20A Remote in a rack:
1. Insert the wired panel through the rear of the rack.
2. Attach the panel with front-mounting screws to hold it firmly in place (see
Figure 7).
Installing Remote
Tip: For a multi-panel system, you may find it easier to install the top panel first
and move down from there.
Figure 7: Place in rack and fasten with mounting screws
3. Apply power to the panel(s).
4. Wait briefly for the system to establish communication with the remote
panel.
Execute a test switch to make sure the system is working properly (see Executing
Switches on page 2-2). If the system is not working properly, check all system
connections and retry the test switch before contacting AutoAssist (see Technical
Support, page 1-4).
Note: If the remote panel was not part of the original system, you will need to
load the configuration file to the CP-20A Remote; see page 8-2 for instructions.

timeout error
One or more of the enclosures
in a multi-enclosure system did
not acknowledge a control
operation command.
System Error Codes
Troubleshooting
Error codes can appear either on the control panel or in a terminal emulation
program, such as HyperTerminal.
When you are using a control panel, one of the most common troubleshooting
strategies is to resend the command to see if the error was simply a timeout error.
When you are using BCS (Basic Control Structure) commands, one common
troubleshooting strategy is to enter the command again. Often the command has
simply been entered incorrectly (e.g., omitting an output in a Change command).
In other cases, the command has specified a value that is not valid (e.g., entering
a decibel value in an adjust volume command that is outside the volume range
for the audio board).
Technical Support
For questions concerning CP-20A error or warning messages, note the specific
information and contact AutoAssist.
AutoPatch provides technical support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (except for
U.S. holidays). Before contacting technical support with a question, please
