Identity Codes
The ST-1550C touchpanel uses two distinct types of identity codes: Cresnet identity
(NET ID), and RF ID. These codes are assigned to the touchpanel from the Interface
Submenu when the unit is configured. Refer to “Interface” on page 11. For the
touchpanel to be identified within the Cresnet system, these assignments must match
assignments made in the SIMPL Windows program.
NET ID
Every equipment and user interface within the Cresnet system requires a unique NET
ID. The NET ID is a two-digit hexadecimal number that can range from 03 to FE.
The NET ID of the unit must match the NET ID specified in the SIMPL Windows
program. The NET ID is used when the touchpanel is wired directly to the control
system during uploading a VisionTools™ Pro-e (VT Pro-e) project or upgrading the
touchpanel firmware.
RF ID
Every ST-1550C touchpanel communicating with a Cresnet control system via an
ST-CP or CNRFGWA requires a unique RF ID to secure RF communications. There
are 15 useable codes for multiple touchpanel(s) ranging from 01 to 0F (hexadecimal
number). The RF ID of the unit must match the RF ID specified in the SIMPL
Windows program.
NOTE: Do not set the RF ID to “00”; it is not supported in SIMPL Windows.

Power, Contrast, and Backlight
(PCB)
To obtain the Power, Contrast, and Backlight (PCB) screen, shown to the left, touch
the Power / Contrast / Backlight button from the Preferences Menu. Each option is
explained in the following paragraphs.
Power
Turning off the backlight can lengthen the touchpanel battery life when the
touchpanel is inactive. Two buttons, Off and Standby, located in the left column of
the PCB screen are available to conserve power. The Off button completely shuts
down the touchpanel so that no power is drawn from the ST-BTPN, ST-DSN, or
external AC power pack. The Standby button shuts down the touchpanel display so
that minimal power is drawn from the ST-BTPN, ST-DSN, or external AC power
pack. These buttons have special software identities (reserve join numbers) and can
be recreated and programmed onto any page in the project. To reactivate the
touchpanel after the Off or Standby buttons have been utilized, simply press the
touchscreen.
Contrast
Screen contrast may need to be altered because of ambient light conditions, viewing
angle, panel temperature, or personal preference. One of the two contrast buttons
located centrally in the PCB screen may be held down for continuous and smooth
adjustment of the screen.
Backlight
Screen brightness may need to be altered because of ambient light conditions or
personal preference. Three brightness buttons, Low, Medium, and High, located in
the right column of the PCB screen may be selected to assign the backlight setting.
NOTE: Display backlight requires warm-up time to reach full brightness.
Touch RETURN, after parameters have been set, to return to the Preferences Menu.
Power Management
Timeout
To obtain the Timeout screen, shown to the left of this paragraph, touch the Power
Management button from the Preferences And Settings screen. Turning off the
backlight when the touchpanel is inactive can lengthen the life of the touchpanel
battery (ST-BTPN). The length of touchpanel inactivity can be specified to minimize
power utilization.
Standby Timeout is displayed in the top left corner of the Timeout screen. This
setting turns the display and backlight off when the touchpanel is inactive for the
specified time. When the touchpanel is activated, the last screen to be displayed
reappears. The specified time is displayed in minutes. A two-minute Standby
Timeout is shown in the illustration. Minutes can vary from 0 to 120, where 0
disables the timeout. Down and up arrow buttons decrease and increase the timeout,
respectively.
Power Down Timeout is displayed in the top right corner of the Timeout screen.
This setting turns off all power when the touchpanel is inactive for the specified
time. When the touchpanel is activated, the first page of the project appears or the
last screen to be displayed reappears. Selection depends on how you setup your
custom program. (Refer to “Power Up On Last Page” on page 11 for details.) The
specified time is displayed in minutes. A 10-minute Power Down Timeout is shown
in the illustration. Minutes can vary from 0 to 120, where 0 disables the timeout.

Crestron ST-1550C
Down and up arrow buttons decrease and increase the timeout, respectively.
NOTE: Power Down Timeout should be set low to maximize battery life. However,
Power Down Timeout should be set greater than Standby Timeout. Otherwise, the
Standby Timeout is meaningless.
NOTE: If the external AC power pack is attached to the touchpanel and plugged
into an active AC receptacle or if the touchpanel is resting in the docking station
(ST-DSN) and plugged into an active AC receptacle, the panel does not power down
when the power down timeout is achieved. Recall that the purpose of the timeout is
to maximize battery life. Standby timeout still functions.
After timeout parameters have been set, touch the SAVE TIMEOUTS button in the
lower left corner of the ST-1550C to save the new settings. Touch the RETURN
button to display the Preferences And Settings screen.
Advanced Settings Screen
Advance Settings
The Advanced Settings button from the Preferences And Settings screen opens the
Advanced Settings screen, shown to the left of this paragraph.
The Advanced Settings screen contains diagnostic buttons (Display EEPROM,
Display Touch Data, Firmware, Display Palette, and Self Test). Diagnostic
buttons should only be used under supervision of a Crestron technical support
representative during telephone support. These options are numeric in nature and
their interpretation is beyond the scope of this Operations Guide.
This screen also contains special settings buttons (DayLight Savings, Power Up On
Last Page, and Interface). Details of the special settings buttons are discussed in the
following paragraphs.
Touch the RETURN button to return to the Preferences And Settings screen.
Daylight Savings Screen
Daylight Savings
To access the Daylight Savings screen, shown to the left of this paragraph, touch the
Daylight Savings button from the Advanced Settings screen. Two options are
available: Set Daylight Savings Time Northern Hemisphere and Set Daylight
Savings Time Southern Hemisphere. Each button can be toggled (ON/OFF states).

1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel
Power Up On Last Page
The Power Up On Last Page button lets you specify which screen appears when
unit is powered up. When set to ON (indicated by the button’s background color
changing to blue), the last screen to be displayed reappears and all feedback is
restored when the touchpanel is reactivated. When set to OFF (the button’s text
assumes the same shade as all the other buttons on the screen), the first page of the
project appears when the touchpanel is activated.
Interface Screen
Interface
The touchpanel communicates with an ST-CP (for SmarTouch) or other Crestron
control system (for Cresnet) via wireless RF (through a CNRFGWA gateway). To
do so, the touchpanel Cresnet ID and RF ID settings and those assigned in the
control system program must match. To set the Cresnet ID and RF ID, select the
Interface button from the Advanced Settings screen and display the Interface screen,
shown to the left of this paragraph.
The CRESNET ID network identity number (NET ID), displayed in the top left
corner of the Interface screen, is only used during screen uploads to the touchpanel,
and consists of a two-digit hexadecimal number. “03” is shown as an example in the
illustration and happens to be the default. The down and up arrow buttons decrease
and increase the NET ID by one, respectively (i.e., 01, 02, 03, . . . FE).
The radio frequency identity number (RF ID), displayed in the top right corner of the
Interface screen, is necessary to secure RF communications such that controls can be
activated from the touchpanel. The RF ID consists of a two-digit hexadecimal
number. The touchpanel can be set to one of fifteen numbers; “10” is shown as an
example in the illustration and happens to be the default. The down and up arrow
buttons decrease and increase the RF ID most significant digit by one, respectively
(i.e., 10, 20, 30, …, F0). The RF ID of the unit must match the RF ID specified in
the SIMPL Windows program.
NOTE: Do not set the RF ID to “00”; it is not supported in SIMPL Windows.
After the Cresnet ID and RF ID settings have been verified, touch the RETURN
button, located at the bottom of the screen, to save the settings and display the
Advanced Settings Screen.
General Use and Safety
WARNING: To avoid shock hazard and possible damage to the unit, do not use
touchpanel in rain or expose it to unnecessary moisture.
Recommended Touchpanel 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 that may detrimentally affect image quality.
For best cleaning results, use a clean, damp, non-abrasive cloth with any
commercially available non-ammonia glass cleaner. The surrounding plastic
enclosure may not provide a completely watertight seal. Therefore, apply cleaning
solution to the cloth rather than the surface of the touchscreen. Wipe touchscreen
clean and avoid leakage of moisture beneath panels.

Have a question or comment about Crestron software?
Answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) can be viewed in the Online Help
section of the Crestron website. To post a question or view questions you have
submitted to Crestron’s True Blue Support, log in at http://support.crestron.com.
First-time users will need to establish a user account.
You can create a program that allows you to set up the ST-1550C to operate a
Crestron control system using the Crestron programming tools Crestron
SystemBuilder™ and SIMPL Windows. These tools are intended for users with
different levels of programming knowledge. The flexibility of each tool is
proportional to the degree of programming expertise (i.e., the more flexible, the
more a programmer needs to know and account for). Of course, one can initiate
programming using the easiest method (SystemBuilder) and use advanced
techniques that are available from SIMPL Windows to customize the job.
VT Pro-e is a Windows® compatible software package for creating Crestron
touchpanel screen designs. Refer to “Programming with VT Pro-e” on page 16 for
additional details regarding VT Pro-e.
Earliest Version Software Requirements for the PC
NOTE: Crestron recommends that you use the latest software to take advantage of
the most recently released features. The latest software is available from the Crestron
website.
The following are recommended software version requirements for the PC:
•
SIMPL Windows version 1.61.05 or later.
•
Crestron Database version 11.7.211 or later.
•
VisionTools Pro-e version 2.2.3.1 or later. Used for graphical
touchscreen design.
•
SystemBuilder version 1.02 or later. Requires SystemBuilder templates
1.01 or later. (If used, may require newer versions of above software.
SystemBuilder displays version requirements messages, if any, upon
launch.)
•
(Optional) Crestron Engraver version 2.3.0.0 (only required if using
SystemBuilder).
Programming with the Crestron SystemBuilder
The easiest method of
programming, but does not
offer as much flexibility as
SIMPL Windows.
The Crestron SystemBuilder 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. SystemBuilder then programs the system, including all touchpanel
projects and control system logic.

Crestron ST-1550C
1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel
SystemBuilder is fully integrated with Crestron's suite of software development
tools, including SIMPL Windows, VT Pro-e, Crestron Database, User IR Database,
and User Modules Directory. SystemBuilder accesses these tools behind the scenes,
enabling you to easily create robust systems.
SystemBuilder includes Scheduler programming which allows you to define weekly,
periodic, or by-date events that run at scheduled times of day. Scheduler properties
can be adjusted via a touchpanel. Refer to the extensive SystemBuilder help file for
details.
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. SIMPL Windows offers drag and drop
functionality in a familiar Windows® environment.
This section describes a sample SIMPL Windows program that includes an
ST-1550C touchpanel.
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.

To incorporate a wireless RF touchpanel into the system, a gateway device is
required. The C2Net-Device Slot can accept a gateway such as the CNRFGWA.
Once a gateway is configured in a C2Net-Device Slot, the slot allows Cresnet
communication between the touchpanel and the control system.
In Configuration Manager, drag the CNRFGWA gateway from the Wireless
Receivers (RF) folder of the Device Library. The System Views upper pane displays
the CNRFGWA device icon below the PRO2 graphic.
NOTE: The ST-CP control processor is automatically configured with a
CNRFGWA in its STCP-Net Device Slot 3, with a fixed NET ID, when the ST-CP is
dragged into the upper pane of System Views. Similarly, the MC2W control
processor is configured with a CNRFGWA in its MC2W-Net Device Slot 8.
Drag the ST-1550C from the Touchpanels (Wireless | Wireless one way) folder of
the Device Library and drop it on the CNRFGWA symbol in System Views. The
PRO2 system tree displays the CNRFGWA gateway in Slot 9, with a default NET ID
of 24. The CNRFGWA displays the touchpanel at the touchpanel’s default RF ID
location, “10,” as shown in the following illustration.
C2Net Device, Slot 9
Double-click the CNRFGWA icon in the upper pane to open the “Device Settings”
window. This window displays CNRFGWA device information. Select the Net ID
tab to change the gateway Net ID, as shown in the following figure.

NOTE: Recall that in both the ST-CP and the MC2W configurations, the
CNRFGWA has a fixed NET ID, which cannot be changed.
Similarly, expand the system tree in the lower pane and double-click the ST-1550C
icon to open the “Device Settings” window for the touchpanel. Select the RF/IR ID
tab to change the touchpanel RF ID, as shown in the following figure. For more
information on setting the RF/IR ID, refer to “Interface Screen”on page 11.
NOTE: The hardware and software settings of the RF ID must match. Although the
device setting window in SIMPL Windows allows choices through the range of twodigit Hexadecimal numbers from 01 through FE, the RF ID setting for the hardware
is limited to numbers in increments of the most significant digit (i.e., 00, 10, 20).
Since 00 is not a valid selection in SIMPL Windows, the RF ID number is limited to
the fifteen numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, . . .F0.

Programming with VT Pro-e
Control screen variations incorporating two- and three-dimensional graphics and text
are possible and can be created with VT Pro-e, a design/programming Windows
-based software program. A set of pages, which make up a project, can be designed
for each application. Each touchpanel can be organized with the ideal, color-oriented
control environment with custom control graphics: icons, two and three-dimensional
buttons, and floor plans. The project is uploaded to the touchpanel’s flash PROM.
The touchpanel uses the project until another is uploaded from the PC. The PC may
be disconnected from the control processor except when uploading a project.
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.
Virtual Feedback
Programming a one-way RF touchpanel such as the ST-1550C requires consideration
of “feedback." Since the panels are one-way only, and there is no true feedback, you
must create "virtual feedback" so that buttons respond appropriately when pressed
and the user perceives no real difference between a one-way panel and a two-way
panel. The SystemBuilder takes care of all of this for you. However, if you are
programming your panels with SIMPL Windows and VT Pro-e, you must follow the
following procedure to add logic both to the touchpanel for button feedback and to
the control system program to properly process the signals, and to make sure that the
state of the buttons on the panel and in the control system remain in sync.
16 • 1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel: ST-1550C

Crestron ST-1550C
1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel
Button press feedback produces a change in appearance from the inactive state to the
active state, or vice versa, as defined in the program.
•
Momentary feedback, from inactive to active and back to inactive, has a short
duration, lasting only as long as the button is pressed.
•
Toggle feedback produces a change of state each time the button is pressed (a
logical active vs. inactive).
•
With Interlock feedback, only one button in an assigned interlock group can be
active at a time. Pressing an inactive button changes its state to active, and
forces the other buttons in the group to inactive. (To clear all buttons in the
interlock group requires that an extra button be added whose sole purpose is to
force all the others to the inactive state.)
•
Duration feedback is assigned to a group of buttons that are to be activated
simultaneously, remain active for a specified period of time, and then return to
the inactive state.
In the following paragraphs, each feedback type will be discussed in detail as
applicable.
VT Pro-e Procedures
Buttons requiring feedback need to have the feedback type assigned as if it were a
property of the object. Button feedback logic is classified as momentary, toggle,
interlock, or duration. Logic is added to the buttons on the panel (after join numbers
and other properties have been assigned), by right clicking the button in VT Pro-e
and selecting Feedback, which displays the “Feedback” window.
“Feedback” Window
NOTE: When the Feedback window is open, you can click on any of the buttons on
the page and view their various feedback properties.

Interlock
An interlock consists of a number of assigned buttons grouped together so that
button selection is mutually exclusive within the group. This is an important feature
when you wish to guarantee that button selection can only be made when all the
other buttons of the group are or will be forced inactive. For example, three sources
(CD, VCR, tape deck) are controlled and designed within an interlock. This ensures
that if CD is chosen, all other sources/subpages are inactive.
To create the interlock group, right-click on one of the buttons to be in the group,
and select Feedback to display the “Feedback” window. Select Interlock as the
feedback type. The window changes to show any existing interlock group(s), and
includes a Groups button.
“Feedback” Window
Use the drop down Interlock Group: field to select an existing group, or click on
Groups to open the “Edit Interlock” window, which allows you to edit the existing
groups or create a new group.
“Edit Interlock” Window
Select New to create a new interlock group. Select Edit if you wish to modify an
existing group. In either case, the “Create Interlock” window appears.

“Create Interlock” Window
For new interlock groups, move the cursor over each button to be added and leftclick to select it. (Notice that the cursor assumes the pointing hand shape when it is
over the page.) If a button is inadvertently placed in the “Buttons:” field, highlight
the button and select Delete to remove it from the group. Select OK to confirm and
save the interlock group.
To edit an existing interlock group, select the group in the “Edit Interlock” window
and click Edit to open the “Create Interlock” window. Add or delete buttons as
needed.
Duration
A button defined with duration feedback remains active for a fixed time period as
defined in the Duration field. The purpose of a duration feedback is to simulate a
function in the SIMPL Windows program that must remain active for a certain
amount of time, such as closing drapes and lowering a screen, before turning on the
projector.
Right-click on the desired button and select Feedback. In the “Feedback” window,
select Duration as the feedback type, and enter the desired duration in seconds.
When pressed to initiate the functions (drapes and screen then projector), the button
remains active for the time required to complete the functions.
Sequence Groups
A sequence group consists of a number of assigned buttons that are activated as a
group as a result of a single button press. When the first button is activated, the other
buttons are activated either sequentially, when one or more of the buttons is defined
as having duration feedback, or simultaneously if no durations are included in the
group. This is an important feature when one wishes to guarantee that a single
selection can activate a number of functions. For example, one can unify the
following functions: draw shades closed, dim lights, and start projector. This ensures
that when this sequence group is activated, all functions/join numbers of the
collective unit are activated together.
Starting from an open page, select (or create) the button that is to activate the group,
right click and select Feedback. In the “Feedback” window, select Duration as the
feedback type, and enter the desired Duration in seconds. In the Button Action area
Joins field, scroll to the desired button joins and click the Add Step button. As each
one is added, “Simulate Button xx” appears in the Sequence Group list. When all the
desired joins have been added, click Close to accept the entries and close the
“Feedback” window. (Refer to the following figure.)

“Feedback” Window
VT Pro-e always generates the proper virtual feedback logic and appends it to the
compiled VT Pro-e file for upload to the panel. However, you must add similar logic
to the control system via SIMPL Windows.
SIMPL Windows Procedures
Momentary Feedback
Momentary feedback is when the button feedback state is active as long as the button
is pressed and inactive when it is not being pressed. Momentary feedback does not
require anything special in the SIMPL Windows program. You simply connect the
signal from the appropriate touchpanel join number to the logic in the program (to
the feedback of the same digital press).
Interlock Feedback
Interlock feedback is when the feedback of only one button in a group may be active
at any one time. Pressing a button causes its feedback to go high and the feedback of
all other buttons to become inactive, or low, as shown in the figure following this
paragraph. In this example, join numbers 7 – 10 are in an interlock group; join 7 is
pressed, causing join 8, initially high, to go low and join 7 to go high. The one-way
touchpanels transmit only the newly pressed button to the control system. The
programmer must add a SIMPL Windows INTERLOCK symbol and connect all of
the touchpanel output's join numbers in that interlock group as inputs to the
INTERLOCK symbol. All of the outputs are then used to drive the appropriate logic.
Note that the output of the interlock corresponding to the pressed button remains
high even after the button is released, until the next button is pressed.

Toggle Feedback
Toggle feedback is when the feedback of a button alternates between active and
inactive each time the button is pressed. As in the interlock, the toggle feedback
remains high even after the button is released, until the button is pressed again.
Because there is no way to communicate the state of the toggle button between the
panel and the control system by using that single button, Crestron models a toggle on
a one-way panel as a two-button interlock group. The button shown on the panel is
the first button. The second button (invisible, Crestron-created, not user-created) is
the original button's join number + 500, e.g. 1 and 501, 101 and 601, etc. Since there
are only 999 join numbers allowed by Crestron's RF protocol, a toggle button may
only have a join number of 499 or below. Be aware that you must not use the toggle
join numbers + 500 for other purposes. Crestron recommends that you keep toggle
buttons in one numeric range (such as 100-150) and then make sure you do not use
anything in the corresponding +500 range (600-750). When the user first presses and
releases the toggle button, the panel transmits the join number press and release. The
next time the user presses and releases the toggle button, the panel transmits the join
number + 500 press and release, and then continues to alternate between them. By
this method, Crestron knows that the user is explicitly turning the toggle on or
explicitly turning it off, so that the state on the control system and the state on the
touchpanel will match. The programmer must place an INTERLOCK symbol in the
SIMPL Windows program and connect the join number and the join number + 500 to
it. The feedback corresponding to the original join number should be used to drive
the logic corresponding to the toggle being turned on, and the feedback
corresponding to the join number offset by 500 is used to drive the logic
corresponding to the toggle being turned off. Refer to the following figure.

Duration Feedback
A button defined with duration feedback will remain active for a fixed period of time
as programmed in the duration field. Active duration is defined by selecting duration
as the feedback type, and entering a number of seconds in the duration field. The
programmer should add an MV (one-shot) symbol to the SIMPL Windows program,
with the appropriate time parameter, as shown in the following figure.

Sequence Groups
In addition to button feedback, programmers can specify that a single button perform
a sequence of operations. The sequence can press other buttons and these buttons
may have durations to introduce delays. The virtual feedback generated by VT Pro-e
to the one-way panel will approximate as closely as possible the SIMPL Windows
program of multi button press feedback generated from a single button press
sequence, but the only information that is actually transmitted to the control system
is the join number of the button that specifies the sequence. On the touchpanel, if
timing is specified in the sequence, the button that specifies the sequence will appear
active for the whole sequence; the other buttons in the sequence will go active in the
order and for the duration specified in the sequence; if no timing is specified, the
other buttons will go active simultaneously.
The programmer must duplicate the actual logic, including all button presses,
functions and durations, on the control system. Normally, the programmer uses a
STEPPER symbol in SIMPL Windows, with the input driven by the join number that
initiates the sequence. As shown in the following figure, each output of the
STEPPER drives the logic for the next step in the sequence with the appropriate
duration and delay as the corresponding parameters.

Reserved Join Numbers
A reserved join number is a feature of the software that enables a designer to create a
button on a touchpanel page that completes a predetermined function. The table after
this paragraph provides a list of reserved join numbers available within SIMPL
Windows 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: If designing an analog battery gauge bargraph, it can be displayed with any
of the standard command text on analog channel 2. Therefore, `A2 displays the
gauge as a bargraph that fills bottom to top. `D2 displays a bargraph that fills left to
right. Obtain the latest version of VT Pro-e from the Crestron website.
Uploading and Upgrading
NOTE: Crestron recommends that you use the latest software and that each device
contains the latest firmware to take advantage of the most recently released features.
Please check the Crestron website (http://www.crestron.com/updates) for the latest
versions of software and firmware. New users are required to register to obtain
access to this site.
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
Operations Guide – DOC. 6096A
1-Way Wireless RF Touchpanel: ST-1550C • 23

Crestron ST-1550C
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 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 VT Pro-e project or upgrade
the firmware of the ST-1550C touchpanel. However, before attempting to upload or
upgrade, it is necessary to establish communications.
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-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 (discontinued)
Keyspan USA-19QW (discontinued)
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 Crestron website. Refer to the following figure for a typical connection
diagram when uploading files.
NOTE: Use a standard DB9 male to female “straight-through” cable.

Typical Connection Diagram when Uploading a Project from the PRO2 or equivalent
NOTE: If the control system in use has a 4-pin network connector rather than a
modular (RJ-11 type) NET connector, use an ST-CBL cable (sold separately).
NOTE: To make a cable for either configuration, refer to the “Programming Cable
Specifications” diagram after these notes.
NOTE: An adapter such as a CN-RJ11 (sold separately) is required when using the
RJ-11 cable.
NOTE: The RJ-11 (part of ST-PK) and ST-CBL cables can also be found as part
