12 Inch Tilt/Lectern Touchpanels
Crestron TPS-4500V & TPS-4500LV
Featuring a 12-inch (30.5 cm) active matrix display the TPS-4500V/LV uses the
65,536-color Isys engine, which allows all graphics to be displayed with incredible
brightness and depth.
Multiple graphics can be displayed on the TPS-4500V/LV without any shift in color
depth or quality. The touchpanel supports real-time video with the built-in
TPS-VID-1 (VIDL-1 for the 4500LV) video digitizer card.
The purpose of the TPS-4500V/LV touchpanel is to replace large, complicated hardwired panels in either a Cresnet® system or an RS-232 system with a series of
simpler screens each specific to the control problem at hand. Thus, a very large
number of functions can be made available to the user without the confusion
associated with hardware panels of that complexity. Icons, graphics, and text can
dramatically increase any user's comprehension of the control environment. Devices,
functions, and control zones are quickly organized and more easily accessed.
The TPS-4500V/LV has the ability to transmit touch coordinates when “RS-232 Port
for Touch Output” is selected. Currently Telestrator devices are supported on the
TPS-4500V/LV. Refer to the “RS-232 Menu” section of “Configuring the
Touchpanel” on page 13 and “Appendix C: Configuring the RS-232 Port for Use”
on page 45 for instructions on selecting this feature.

Video
The TPS-4500V/LV comes with a TPS-VID-1 single source video digitizer card that
can display an S-video or composite video signal in a touchpanel project. For more
information on configuring the touchpanel to display video signals, refer to “Video
Menu” on page 13.
Memory
The TPS-4500V/LV ships with 4MB of flash and 8MB of DRAM memory.
Additional memory by Crestron can be purchased separately and installed in the
field. Refer to the latest revision of the Flash Memory for TPS User Interfaces
Installation Guide (Doc. 5927) for an installation procedure.
Interface Modules (TPS-4500V only)
Connect the TPS-4500V to an outboard interface module, which provides expanded
network/video connections for the touchpanel system. The connecting cable
assemblies are supplied. There are two interface modules available: TPS-4500IMPC
and TPS-4500IMW.
The TPS-4500IMPC is supplied with every TPS-4500V. This module is housed in a
black enclosure with a silk-screened top panel and several I/O ports. At the shorter
sides of the unit, the enclosure extends to form feet at a right angle to the side. These
feet have mounting holes. Consult the latest revision of the TPS-4500IMPC
Operations Guide (Doc. 6163, included with the TPS-4500V touchpanel) for more
details.
The TPS-4500IMW is not provided with the TPS-4500V; it must be purchased
separately. This unit installs into a one-gang electrical box (2.5-inch depth
minimum). A decorator style wallplate can be mounted over the unit once it is
installed to offer a more eye-pleasing appearance compared to the TPS-4500IMPC.
Consult the latest revision of the TPS-4500IMW Operations Guide (Doc. 5913) for
more details.
Position Lock Buttons (TPS-4500V only)
These buttons are used to make angular adjustments to the touchpanel screen. Each
incremental angular position is indicated by an audible click (unless the position lock
button is held down). Two position lock buttons are located on the backside of the
touchscreen, shown after this paragraph. The two buttons function together so that if
one is held down, the other is held down as well. This makes tilting the touchpanel
comfortable for left and right-hand users. Furthermore, button position allows for
one-hand tilting.

12 Inch Tilt/Lectern Touchpanels
Crestron TPS-4500V & TPS-4500LV
Range of motion is adjustable for user comfort and can vary from 30 to 80 degrees of
inclination from the horizontal. Thus each user can position the touchscreen to a
comfortable angle, just as a microphone can be repositioned to a suitable height for
each speaker. The comfortable angle is herein referred to as user position. The
position lock guarantees that once a user position is established or locked, the angle
will not change from repeated presses on the touchscreen.
The touchscreen is free to move up from the nearly horizontal position to a larger
incremental angle. Grasp the touchscreen with a hand at each side (or just one hand
at either side, as shown after this paragraph) and gently tilt up to a comfortable
position. To activate position lock, slightly reverse the motion until the touchpanel
stops moving. The touchscreen is now set into user position.
NOTE: If the position lock button is held down as the screen is tilted, there are no
audible clicks.
Two-Hand Placement for Tilting a Touchpanel to a Vertical Position
Once in user position, position lock is activated which means the touchscreen cannot
be forced to a horizontal position without pressing the position lock button(s). The
touchscreen is still free to tilt up; a new user position is established at each increment
or audible click.
A position lock button needs to be pressed before the touchscreen can be returned to
a more horizontal position. To press the button, slightly position the touchscreen in
the vertical direction with one or two hands, avoiding any horizontal movement. The
position lock button can then be held down and the touchscreen can be tilted to a
more horizontal position.
Industry Compliance
As of the date of manufacture, the touchpanel 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
CAUTION: Use only Crestron power supplies for Crestron equipment. Failure to
do so could cause equipment damage or void the Crestron warranty.
CAUTION: Possible equipment damage if miswired.
NOTE: When installing network wiring, refer to the latest revision of the wiring
diagram(s) appropriate to your specific system configuration, available from the
Downloads | Product Manuals | Wiring Diagrams section of the Crestron website
(www.crestron.com).
NOTE: Do not power up system until all wiring is verified. Care should be taken to
ensure data (Y, Z) and power (24, G) connections are not crossed.
NOTE: All network 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.
When calculating the wire gauge for a particular Cresnet run, the length of the run
and the power factor of each Cresnet 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 network unit to be daisy-chained must be added together to determine the
power factor of the entire chain. 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.
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 after this paragraph.

12 Inch Tilt/Lectern Touchpanels
Crestron TPS-4500V & TPS-4500LV
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 and tighten the retaining
screw. Repeat the procedure for the other three conductors.
NOTE: 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.
Identity Code
Every equipment and user interface within the network requires a unique identity
code (Net ID). These codes are two-digit hexadecimal numbers ranging from 03 to
FE. Refer to “Interface Menu” on page 12 for instructions on setting the unit's Net
ID. 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 25 for
details of the SIMPL Windows procedure.
Configuring the Touchpanel
NOTE: The only connection required to configure the touchpanel is power. Refer to
“Hardware Hookup” on page 14 for details.
MAIN MENU
To configure the unit, it may be necessary to access a series of setup screens prior to
viewing run-time screens that are loaded into the touchpanel for normal operation.
The MAIN MENU for configuring the touchpanel appears when a finger is held to
the touchscreen as power is applied. Remove your finger when the message “SETUP
MODE” appears on the touchscreen.
NOTE: The SETUP MODE can also be accessed through the Viewport Utility if the
touchpanel is connected directly to a PC.
This menu can also be obtained via
digital reserved join number, 17242.
Upon entering SETUP MODE, the MAIN MENU, shown to the left, displays four
buttons: Touch Screen Calibration, Exit and Run Program, Setup, and
Diagnostics.
The Exit and Run Program button verifies that all of the setup information has
been saved to EEPROM and displays the main page that has been programmed into
your system. The remaining buttons on the MAIN MENU open other menus, which
are discussed in subsequent paragraphs.

CALIBRATION MENU
Calibration of the touchscreen is required if the active touch area of a button does
not coincide with the button's image. Select the Touch Screen Calibration button to
display the CALIBRATION MENU, shown to the left. The CALIBRATION MENU
offers the choice to initiate calibration with the Perform Calibration button or
return to the previous screen with the Return button. Choose an option by touching
the correct button.
If you proceed to calibrate the touchpanel, the screen displays the message “Touch
Upper Left” centered on the panel with a cross hair in the corner. Touch the cross
hair in the corner of the screen to initiate calibration. Another message, “Touch
Upper Right”, appears with a cross hair in the correct corner. Touch the corner of the
screen. A final message, “Touch Lower Right”, appears with a cross hair in the
correct corner. Touch the corner of the screen to conclude calibration and return to
the MAIN MENU.
NOTE: When touching the screen during calibration, be as accurate as possible.
Use the tip of a capped pen or the eraser end of a pencil. To cancel calibration and
return to the CALIBRATION MENU without saving calibration data, create a
calibration error by touching the screen in an area that is opposite from the instructed
area.
Setup Menu
SETUP MENU
To access the SETUP MENU, shown to the left, press the Setup button from the
MAIN MENU. The SETUP MENU offers a series of buttons, which opens
additional menus and displays, which are detailed in subsequent paragraphs. Many
touchpanel options (i.e., standby timeout and brightness) are available directly from
the SETUP MENU and are explained in the following paragraphs. Other setup
parameters (i.e., interface, RS-232, and video) use additional menus and are detailed
in subsequent paragraphs as well. After setup parameters have been set, select the
Return button to return to the MAIN MENU.
NOTE: The current CRESNET ID (a.k.a. Net ID) setting is displayed in the upper
left corner of the SETUP MENU.
NOTE: All touchpanel settings are automatically saved in non-volatile memory.
The touchpanel display can be turned off (standby mode) when not in active use.
STANDBY TIMEOUT, located in the middle of the SETUP MENU, can turn off
the touchpanel when it is inactive for a specified time frame (minutes, shown as 30
in the illustration). When the touchpanel is activated, the last screen to be displayed
reappears. Minutes can vary from 0 to 120, where 0 disables the timeout. DOWN
and UP buttons decrease and increase the timeout, respectively.
Screen brightness may need to be altered because of ambient light conditions or
personal preference. BRIGHTNESS, located in the lower left corner of the SETUP
MENU, can change the brightness level of the display. The current brightness setting
is shown as a percentage in the SETUP MENU (e.g., 99% brightness is shown in the
illustration). Percentage can vary from 0% (low brightness) to 100% (full
brightness). DOWN and UP buttons decrease and increase the brightness,
respectively.

Interface Menu
INTERFACE MENU
The touchpanel communicates with a control system to activate commands or to
display feedback from components within the system. The communication interface
must be correctly specified or communication will not occur. To set communication
parameters select the Interface button located on the SETUP MENU and display the
INTERFACE MENU, shown to the left.
The Cresnet network identity number (CRESNET ID) is displayed on the
INTERFACE MENU. CRESNET ID is the two-digit hexadecimal number. The
hexadecimal number can range from 03 to FE and must correspond to the Net ID set
in the SIMPL Windows program of the Cresnet system. Matching IDs between
touchpanel and SIMPL Windows program is required if data is to be successfully
transferred. The Net ID for the TPS-4500V/LV is factory set to 03, and no two
devices in the same system can have the same ID.
Two buttons adjacent to the hexadecimal display, UP and DOWN, increase and
decrease the CRESNET ID by one, respectively.
The touchpanel usually communicates with a Cresnet system. Occasionally the
touchpanel can be used in a demo mode where it merely displays various menus, but
does not communicate with a Cresnet system. In demo mode, the directory buttons
change pages, but buttons requiring feedback do not work. Two side-by-side buttons
to the right of the CRESNET ID, Enable CRESNET II and Disable CRESNET II,
determine communication mode. Select Enable CRESNET II for normal Cresnet

Do not forward any queries to this
address. Instead refer to “Further
(i.e., SIMPL Windows and Crestron VisionTools® Pro-e (VT Pro-e) software
Inquiries” on page 41 for assistance. packages).
The program output of Crestron AppBuilder is a SIMPL Windows program with
much of the functionality encapsulated in macros. 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
Crestron AppBuilder or develop original touchpanel screen designs.
VT Pro-e is used to create interactive touchpanel screen designs to access functions
of the control system program. When using VT Pro-e version 3.1.2.0 or later, a
programmer can take advantage of Crestron’s Synapse™ graphics and multi-byte
international character support.
The following are recommended software version requirements for the PC:
•
Application Builder version 1.1.6 or later with Application Builder
Templates version 2.12 or later. Requires SIMPL Windows.
•
SIMPL Windows version 1.50.05 or later with library update file.
Requires SIMPL+ Cross Compiler version 1.1.
•
Crestron Database version 14.1 or later. Required by SIMPL Windows.
•
VisionTools Pro-e version 2.2.0.0 or later. Used for graphical touchscreen
design. To use Synapse graphics and multi-byte international characters in a
touchpanel screen, VT Pro-e version 3.1.2.0 or later is required. Touchpanel
firmware version 2.000.0 or later is also required.
NOTE: The latest versions can be obtained from the Downloads | Software Updates
section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com). Crestron software and any files
on the website are for Authorized Crestron dealers and Crestron Authorized
Independent Programmers (CAIP) only. New users may be required to register to
obtain access to certain areas of the site (including the FTP site).
Digital, analog, and serial join numbers are a common thread between VT Pro-e and
SIMPL Windows. These numbers define how the objects on a touchpanel page of a
VT Pro-e project interface to the outside world, specifically the Cresnet system as
defined in the SIMPL Windows program. There are digital join numbers that carry
out some predetermined function (a logical high or low); analog join numbers for

Programming with the Crestron AppBuilder
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 touchpanel
projects and control system logic.
Crestron AppBuilder is fully integrated with Crestron's suite of software
development tools, including SIMPL Windows, VT Pro-e, and the Crestron
Database. Crestron AppBuilder accesses 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: The following are acceptable file extensions for programs that include a
TPS-4500V/LV, developed for specific control system types:
.smw: projectname.smw (SIMPL Windows source file)
.spz: projectname.spz (compiled file for 2-series)
.bin: projectname.bin (compiled file for CNX generation)
.csz: projectname.csz (compiled SIMPL+ file for CNX generation )
.ush: projectname.ush (compiled file for CNX generation with SIMPL+ header file)
.usp: projectname.usp (source code module for SIMPL+)
.umc: projectname.umc (user macro)
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. SIMPL Windows offers drag and drop
functionality in a familiar Windows® environment.
This section describes a sample SIMPL Windows program that includes a
TPS-4500V/LV touchpanel. A Join Number Remapping (JNR) program can be
written to augment the functionality of the touchpanel by making some of the
touchpanel’s internal functions available to the SIMPL Windows programmer. Refer
to “Join Number Remapping” on page 28 for more information.
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.

TPS-4500 Symbol in Programming Manager
Programming Manager is where programmers “program” a Creston control system
by assigning signals to symbols. The following diagram shows the TPS-4500 symbol
in the SIMPL Windows’ Programming Manager.
Detail View of the TPS-4500 in SIMPL Windows’ Programming Manager
Digital
Analog
Serial
NOTE: Join numbers are expandable to 4000 digital & analog, 999 serial.
Signal Types
Signals interconnect the various devices and logic symbols that comprise a SIMPL
program. Signals can be one of three types: digital, analog, or serial. For any given
signal, the signal type is determined by its driving source. That is, if the symbol that
drives the signal has an analog output, then, by definition, the connecting signal is
analog.
In SIMPL Windows, the signal types are color-coded as follows:
Digital = Blue
Analog = Red
Serial = Black
Undefined/Other = Green

12 Inch Tilt/Lectern Touchpanels
NOTE: “Other” signals are a combination of the three basic types (e.g. many
symbols accept either analog or serial signals; the combination is shown as a green
signal). The signal type is displayed on the Status Bar when the signal is highlighted.
For additional information, refer to Doc. 6120, Crestron SIMPL Windows Symbol
Guide. It may be downloaded from the Downloads | Product Manuals | Software
section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com).
Digital Signals
A digital signal contains one bit of information and usually takes on one of two
values: 1 or 0. These two digits can represent the logical values true and false, and
they can be represented in an electronic device by the states on/off or high/low,
recognized as two voltage levels. (Other common descriptors are active/inactive.)
Analog Signals
Unlike digital signals, analog signals can vary continuously in value, in the same
manner as a parameter such as volume, temperature, or pressure. Analog signals
contain 16 bits of information, which means that this type of signal can have values
ranging from 0 to 65535 (216-1). This 16-bit property makes analog signals useful for
controlling devices that do not have discrete settings, such as volume controllers,
pan/tilt head controllers, and lighting dimmers.
Serial Signals
Serial signals are much like analog signals, in that they, too, contain 16 bits of
information. However, whereas the value of an analog signal is used directly-to
control volume or temperature, for instance–the value of the serial signal is used as a
pointer to a location in memory that contains a string of characters. When a serial
signal is routed to a symbol, that symbol can identify the signal as serial rather than
analog and it will automatically look at the data it points to.
Thus serial signals are used to facilitate the transmission of serial data (strings of
characters). These signals can be generated by incoming data on a COM port or by a
symbol that has a serial output.
TPS-4500 Input/Output Signals
The TPS-4500 symbol provides up to 4000 digital input and output joins, 4000
analog input and output joins, and up to 999 serial input joins. The programmer
selects the signal types by clicking on the appropriate button at the top of the Symbol
Detail view when programming the panel.
The following tables list and give functional descriptions for the touchpanel outputs
and inputs.

Device Extenders
Device extenders provide additional logic and functionality to a device. The Poll
Manager and Sleep/Wake Manager symbols are device extenders for touchpanels.
Poll Manager takes the touchpanel on and off line during polling by the control
system. Sleep/Wake Manager suspends and restores operation of the touchpanel. For
additional information about Device Extenders, refer to the latest version of the
Crestron SIMPL Windows Symbol Guide (Doc. 6120), or the on-line help included
with SIMPL Windows.
Example Program
An example program for the TPS-4500V/LV is available from the Crestron FTP site
(ftp.crestron.com/Examples). Search for the file TPS4500_SIMPL_Windows_example_file.smw that contains the example program.
Join Number Remapping
Join Number Remapping (JNR) is a programming concept that allows a TPS Series
Panel to use join numbers with values over 4000 (Join Numbers 4001 to 15999 and
Reserved Join Numbers) by bringing them within the range of the TPS touchpanel
symbol, thereby increasing a touchpanel’s functionality. Through JNR, a TPS Series
Panel’s internal functions become accessible to a control system and can activate the
local functions of other touchpanels, route its internal feedback back to the control
system, and receive feedback from remote locations. JNR provides the additional
capability of managing IP IDs in Ethernet applications where a touchpanel
communicates with multiple control systems that have been uploaded with the same
program. Refer to the latest version of the Join Number Remapping Reference Guide
(Doc. 5969) and the SIMPL Windows help file for more details.
Programming with VisionTools® Pro-e
VT Pro-e, a design and programming Windows®-based software, permits the
creation of unlimited control screen variations incorporating two and threedimensional graphics, video, and text. A set of pages, which make up a project, can
28 • 12 Inch Tilt/Lectern Touchpanels with Video: TPS-4500V & TPS-4500LV
Operations Guide - DOC. 6160
Crestron TPS-4500V & TPS-4500LV
12 Inch Tilt/Lectern Touchpanels
be designed for each TPS-4500V/LV touchpanel application. Each page contains
objects such as video windows, custom control graphics, two and three-dimensional
buttons, sliders, and digital readouts that allow the user to interface with the control
system via join numbers. Unjoined objects are not interfaced with the system and
thus cannot initiate any functions. The completed and compiled project is uploaded
to the touchpanel and programmed into the flash PROM via the File | Upload
Project command. The touchpanel uses the programmed project until another project
is uploaded from the PC. Programs cannot be extracted from the touchpanel. The PC
may be disconnected from the control system or panel except during reprogramming.
VT Pro-e also allows users the option to generate projects destined for web browsers
rather than for physical touchpanels.
Crestron’s Synapse image-rendering algorithm supports advanced anti-aliasing for
crisper, sharper images, as well as new shaded styles for all objects, new frame styles
(neon and raised), and new text styles (embossed, raised, and shadow). 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 3.1.2.0 or later and Isys touchpanel firmware 2.000.0
or later.
NOTE: The following are acceptable file extensions for programs that include a
TPS-4500V/LV:
.vtp
projectname.vtp (VT Pro-e source file)
.vtz
projectname.vtz (compiled file)
Creating a Video Window
A video window object must reside on a page within the uploaded VT Pro-e
touchpanel project for video signals to be displayed.
The video window object properties must have the video source specified in the
Input number field of the Source tab. Select Composite 1 as shown in the following
illustration and click OK.

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 Downloads | Software
Updates section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com).
Multi-Mode Objects
Multi-mode objects offer highperformance programming!
The single most-advanced VT Pro-e high-performance programming technique
involving the TPS-4500V/LV 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 the MULTI-MODE_OBJECT_EXAMPLES_OF_VTPROE_PROJECTS_USE_WITH_ISYS_TOUCHPANELS.ZIP file. It is available from
the Crestron FTP site (ftp.crestron.com/Examples). This file contains the VT Pro-e
touchpanel files and SIMPL Windows files that illustrate the high-performance
capabilities of multi-mode objects.
Reserved Join Numbers
A reserved join number is a feature of the software that enables a designer to create a
button that completes a predetermined function. The tables on the next few pages
provide lists of reserved join numbers available within the software.
NOTE: Many touchpanel configuration “shortcuts” are available via the software.
A button can be created on a page that either calls up the Preferences Menu, adjusts
brightness, etc., via reserved join numbers.
NOTE: Reserved join numbers can also be automatically activated by a control
system when using join number remapping. Refer to the latest version of the Join
Number Remapping Reference Guide (Doc. 5969) which can be found on the
Downloads | Product Manuals section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com),
and the SIMPL Windows help file for more details.

MultiByte International Characters
Most languages use a single byte of 8 bits to represent a character, e.g. English,
French, German, Hebrew, Russian, Thai, etc.
Multibyte character fonts require more than the usual 8 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 issues with multibyte characters: static text on buttons and
indirect text on buttons. No Isys touchpanel firmware changes are required in either
case.
Static text on a button, entered in the standard way in VT Pro-e, always works under
Windows 98. Under Windows XP, you must use VT Pro-e 3.0 or later.
Indirect text on a button is entered in VT Pro-e and the actual string to be displayed
is entered in SIMPL Windows. You must use VT Pro-e 3.0 or later to guarantee that
the full set of characters in the font is stored on the touchpanel. You must use SIMPL
Windows 2.03.11 or later to enter Chinese characters directly. 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 character interspersed with numbers. You can enter Chinese characters
or numbers in separate strings. Crestron is scheduling time to fix this in the near
future and the release notes for SIMPL Windows will mention it.
For now, the workaround of showing a graphic that displays the string can be used,
but it is not dynamic.
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 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 performs 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,
VT Pro-e project or upgrade the firmware of the TPS-4500V/LV touchpanel.
However, before attempting to upload or upgrade, it is necessary to establish
communications.

Crestron TPS-4500V & TPS-4500LV
12 Inch Tilt/Lectern Touchpanels
Communication Settings
Connection of a PC to the TPS-4500V/LV touchpanel can be direct via the RS-232
port on the touchpanel or through a control system (Cresnet). Both methods of
connection provide setup for RS-232 communication.
NOTE: For laptops and other PCs without a built-in RS-232 port, Crestron
recommends the use of PCMCIA cards, rather than USB-to-serial 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.
To prepare the TPS-4500V/LV for uploading or upgrading, refer to the following
figure for a typical connection diagram.
Typical Connection Diagram when Uploading a Project
To prepare the TPS-4500V/LV for uploading or upgrading directly from a PC, refer
to the following figure. Connect the RS-232 port of the computer directly to the RS232 port of the touchpanel. Refer to page 15 for RS-232 cable information.
NOTE: Directly connecting to the touchpanel over RS-232 provides a faster
transmission speed than Cresnet.

Crestron TPS-4500V & TPS-4500LV
Appendix A: RS-232 Protocol
TPS-4500V/LV touchpanels support panel operation via a host computer through the
RS-232 port. While in this mode, the touchpanel can be used as a stand-alone
controller to a host computer running a third-party or custom program. Crestron
recommends that the following serial data format is set.
Suggested Serial Data Format
Baud Rate: 38400
Data Bits: 8
Parity: None
Stop Bits: 1
These settings may be altered via the RS-232 Menu when configuring the
touchpanel, however, doing so may prevent Crestron supplied software from
operating with the touchpanel. Low baud rates will cause the panel to appear
unresponsive. For example, at 300 baud, a single button press (and release) generates
12 characters and requires more than 0.333 of a second to send. Delays as short as
0.1 of a second are generally considered perceptible and somewhat annoying.
RS-232 Menu Button Selection
To enable
this
capability,
select this
button
Command Format - Command format for all items sent to or from the touchpanel is
very simple. All items are ASCII strings terminated by a <cr>. Line feed characters
are ignored, thus <cr><lf> or <lf><cr> are also acceptable line terminators. When
the touchpanel sends a line, it is always terminated with <cr><lf>.
For all strings, the first character determines command type. Numeric arguments, if
present, are in decimal and separated by commas. No control characters are
embedded in the strings to ease processing the strings with high-level languages. Be
careful when using commas in BASIC, because BASIC uses commas for field
separators when reading strings from a file using the INPUT # statement. Since we
are dealing with complete lines, use the LINE INPUT # statement to cure this
problem.
P<#> and R<#> Commands - When in RUN mode, pressing a button (assuming
that it has been joined) generates a six-character code in the format P###<cr><lf>,
where ### is a three-character decimal number in the range of 1 through 4000,
providing for up to 4000 functions. When the button is released, a similar code is
generated, with an 'R' in place of the 'P'. Given that only one button may be pressed

Operations Guide - DOC. 6160
Crestron TPS-4500V & TPS-4500LV
12 Inch Tilt/Lectern Touchpanels
at a time, an 'R' code always follows a 'P' code. A fixed three-digit format is used to
simplify software on the host.
Codes may be sent to the touchpanel in the same form as they are received. The 'P'
form turns on a function and the 'R' form turns off a function; sending back
information received from the touchpanel (i.e., jumping pins 2 and 3 on the RS-232
port) makes the buttons momentary. Notice that the touchpanel responds to P and R
commands even when configured for other interface modes. Selecting an RS-232
interface mode merely enables P and R commands to be issued. In addition, the fixed
format is not required for commands sent to the touchpanel; P1, P01, and P001 are
all perfectly valid commands.
Compared to running on Cresnet, an RS-232 interface to a personal computer is
slower, provides less features (such as tracking, among others), is less noise immune
(Cresnet uses balanced transmission for high common mode rejection, RS-232 does
not), and requires the user to supply the control logic program in the PC.
V<chan>,<level> Command - Levels in gauge and slider objects may be set
through the RS-232 port. The command contains both the object channel number (1255) and level (0-65535) in decimal separated by a comma. For example, V6,32768
would set channel 6 to level 128, or half way up.
One quick note on baud rate and smooth ramping. Ramping is accomplished by
sending successive levels to the object. To do this in 64 levels over three seconds, for
example, requires about 576 bytes worth of commands to be sent, and could not be
accomplished at any rate less than 2400 baud. Obviously, ramping several objects at
once requires a baud rate several times as high.
Indirect Text – TPS-4500V/LV touchpanels support a feature that permits the text
field in any user-defined button to be altered on the fly in RUN mode. This is
accomplished by substituting a text pointer for the text in the button. The text pointer
informs the panel to use the contents of a variable that may be dynamically redefined
as the text field for the button. This presents a considerable advantage over other
methods in that changing screens does not destroy information and that information
may be placed in buttons not currently displayed.
The text pointer is a number in the range of ‘1’ through ‘127’ preceded by the
“pound” symbol (#). If [text…] is omitted, the text field is cleared. If [text…] exists,
it is added to the text field. For example, consider the following string:
#3,Now is the time<cr>
#3,for all good men<cr>
#3,to come to the<cr>
#3,aid of the party<cr>
Assuming that a button with an #3 text pointer was being displayed, the contents of
the button would be changed to:
Now is the time
for all good men
to come to the
aid of the party
NOTE: To clear the text field for this example, type in “#3<cr>”.
As each line is entered, the display is updated. Since the text may be placed in
several different buttons, no boundary checking is done to see if the text fits in the
button. If the text overflows the button/boundaries, it remains centered in the
button/boundary.

Appendix C: Configuring the RS-232 Port for Use
To configure the RS-232 port of the TPS-4500V/LV, a local PC that contains a
Crestron Viewport is required. The Viewport is one of the development tools that is
part of Crestron SIMPL Windows or VT Pro-e software.
Obtaining Communications
Refer to “Communication Settings” on page 33 for detailed instructions on
connecting a PC to the touchpanel.
Configuration Options
There are several RS-232 communication options (at the time of this printing, these
were available):
•
CONSOLE – console active on RS-232 port. Use to load programs,
firmware, or to set configuration. This is the default. Use this
configuration if no other option is appropriate.
•
CONTROL – activates special control mode. Use for control by nonCrestron device or within a non-Crestron control system. Refer to
“Appendix A: RS-232 Protocol” on page 42. For details.
•
TOUCHOUT – touchscreen output sent to RS-232 port. Use for serial
mouse control or Telestrator output. Directly connect computer or
Telestrator box to RS-232 port on TPS-4500V/LV (i.e., touch screen
output). For example, use when an RGB window with tablet overlay on
the TPS panel acts as a serial mouse controller for a PC. In this case,
use the Crestron Serial Mouse Control Driver (tpad.exe), which can be
downloaded from the Downloads | Software Updates section of the
Crestron website (www.crestron.com). Another use is with the
Pointmaker telestrator. For details, refer to the Telestrator Integration
Guide, which can be downloaded from the Downloads | Product
Manuals section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com).
•
MOUSE – RS-232 port used for mouse input. For use with a
Microsoft Compatible Serial Mouse as a pointing device on the
TPS-4500V/LV. Also known as “Touch the PC”.
•
EXT_TOUCH – RS-232 port used for external touch screen input (i.e.,
SMART Matisse Overlay or Microtouch Display).
RS-232 Port Configuration
After establishing communication, the RS-232 can now be configured for
communication with an option. Complete the following steps in the order provided.
1.
From the “TPS>” prompt, enter the following command:
rs232 ?
Operations Guide - DOC. 6160
12 Inch Tilt/Lectern Touchpanels with Video: TPS-4500V & TPS-4500LV • 45
12 Inch Tilt/Lectern Touchpanels
2.
Crestron TPS-4500V & TPS-4500LV
The TPS-4500V/LV responds with the following:
RS232MODE [CONSOLE|CONTROL|RF|TOUCHOUT|MOUSE|EXT_TOUCH]
CONSOLE – console active on RS232 port
CONTROL – activates special control mode.
RF – RF wireless interface.
TOUCHOUT – touchscreen output sent to RS232 port.
MOUSE – rs232 port used for mouse input
EXT_TOUCH – rs232 port used for ext. touchscreen input
No parameter – display current setting
3.
Enter a command that chooses one of the RS-232 communication
options. Use the same spelling as shown in the last touchpanel
response.
4.
The TPS-4500V/LV responds with the following:
New RS232mode set. Reboot to take effect.
5.
Enter the following command:
reboot
6.
The TPS-4500V/LV responds with the following:
Rebooting system. Please wait.
7.
From the Viewport, select Remote | Remote Console | Disconnect.
At this point, the PC and the TPS-4500V/LV are no longer communicating.
Assuming that the touchpanel is properly connected for use (as shown in the diagram
for “Communication Settings” on page 33) and the control system is connected to the
PC, the setup screens can be displayed to set the Net ID and other configurations.
NOTE: Alternatively, use a Cresnet command from the Viewport (communicating
to the control system) to access the setup screens. Verify the Net ID of the TPS4500V/LV and select Functions | Put Touch Panel into Setup Mode. Enter the Net
ID and click OK.
