extended period of time as it will become harder to 35 3mm
(1 /8" )
(1 3/8" )
erase.
• Do not erase with an overly dirty eraser (see page
75).
25 mm (1" )
• Periodically wipe the screen film gently with a
water-dampened cloth that has been thoroughly wrung. (See page 75.)
• Use a commercially available white board cleaner for hard-to-erase stains.
(SANFORD® EXPO® white board cleaner etc.)
• Do not touch the screen, write with markers, or erase while the screen is moving as this may
result in damage to the unit.
• Do not attach chart paper to the screen film for copying as this may result in damage to the
unit.
Markers,
Erasers and
Thermal
Transfer Film
• Use only the included or designated markers, erasers and thermal transfer film. (See page
82.)
Use of accessories other than those included or designated (such as oil-based
markers) may damage the screen or result in hard-to-erase markings.
Before You Start
Precautions
• Copy quality increases with the thickness of the drawn line. To ensure quality copies, please
use the markers (big).
• The markers for interactive (small) draw thin lines. The quality of the copies may be reduced
when these markers are used.
• Do not store the thermal transfer film in a location subject to extreme changes in
temperature (such as near air conditioning or heating equipment) as this may cause
condensation on the thermal transfer film and result in poor print quality and/or paper jams.
• Store markers horizontally as vertical storage may stop the ink from coming out.
• The length of one roll of designated thermal transfer film (Replacement film: UG-6001) is
approximately 50 meters (164 ft.). One roll of thermal transfer film can make approximately
150 sheets of copies.
Note that the total number of copies may differ depending on the operating conditions.
Also note that the length of the thermal transfer film supplied with the unit is shorter
than the replacement film roll and is only approximately 10 meters (32.8 ft.).
Power Cord
and USB
Cable
• When moving the unit, disconnect the power cord from the electrical power socket and from
the printer’s power connector, and disconnect the USB cable from the printer’s USB
connector and a computer. Then coil them for transportation as stepping on the power cord
and USB cable or having them catch on something during movement may result in damage
to the cord and cable.
• If you connect the electronic board to a USB hub, it is not guaranteed to work.
• Do not connect two or more Panasonic electronic boards to a computer. It may cause the
computer operation to become unstable.
11
Precautions
Replacing
the Thermal
Transfer Film
• Dispose of the used thermal transfer film in a trash receptacle for burnable trash.
• A negative of the copied image will remain on the thermal transfer film. (To protect the
security of your information, we recommend cutting up the used thermal transfer film with
scissors or shredder before disposing of it.)
Electronic
Pen and
Electronic
Eraser
Transmitter
• Do not cover the transmitter with your hand while using an interactive function as this may
cause the position of the Electronic Pen or the Electronic Eraser not to be normally
detected.
NG
OK
• Press down firmly with the point of the Electronic Pen or the eraser cloth of the Electronic
Eraser on the screen film until you hear a buzzing sound, and then move it slowly.
However, do not press down the point of the Electronic Pen too much strongly as this may
make a dent in the screen back panel.
• Do not use two or more the Electronic Pens or the Electronic Eraser at the same time as this
may cause the position of the Electronic Pen or the Electronic Eraser not to be normally
detected.
• For precise positioning, keep the Electronic Pen and Electronic Eraser perpendicularly to
the screen during use.
• Since ultrasonic is used to detect the position of the Electronic Pen and Electronic Eraser
when they are being used, you may hear a buzzing sound, but this is not harmful to the
human body or peripheral hardware. It will also not result in an electric shock.
12

* Do not use the shaded area.
• When using a projector to project images, be sure to display the image so that it is centered left-to-right on the
Interactive Panaboard screen and with at least a 50 mm (2”) gap between the top of the image and the screen
border. Note that the Electronic Pen does not always operate properly when within 50 mm (2”) of the top of the
screen, 100 mm (3 15/16”) of the position receiver and 35 mm (1 3/8”) from the both sides of the screen.
• Since the Electronic Pen position may shift if the image on the screen is trapezoid, adjust the projector so that the
image on the screen is rectangular.
• When projecting an image on the Interactive Panaboard using a projector, the image on the screen may become
difficult to see depending on the viewing angle and position due to reflected projector light. If this happens, adjust
the location of the projector or change your viewing position.
• When using a projector to project a computer screen, be sure to use optimum resolution settings for the projector
and the computer. The image may be difficult to see if optimum settings are not used. Fine lines in the image on
the Interactive Panaboard screen may appear broken particularly if the projector resolution is lower than the
computer resolution.
• When using a projector to project images, the Electronic Pen position may shift if the projection position shifts due
to the following causes. If this happens, it becomes necessary to perform calibration to reposition the projected
image on the screen. (For details on calibration, see page 33.)
- When the installed location of the projector is changed.
- When the position of the Interactive Panaboard is changed.
- When the projection area and position has changed due to using a projector function such as zoom.
- When the display resolution of the projector or computer has changed.
Note that the position of an Interactive Panaboard attached to a stand may shift if it is struck carelessly.
Always make sure the stand's casters are locked in place.
• Light from the projector may enter the eye when using a projector to project images for the purpose of making
presentations and so on. Be very careful as direct projector light may hurt the eyes.

which function to display and edit IPB documents.
Basically, they both have identical functions. However,
the Whiteboard window has some functions the View
window does not have as follows.
For more detailed information, refer to “Managing IPB
Documents” on page 57.
System of units:
• The View window displays IPB documents which
record the drawing on the Interactive Panaboard
screen projecting the computer screen.
Consequently, the size is represented by dots.
• In the Whiteboard window the drawing on the
Interactive Panaboard screen using the Electronic
Pen and Electronic Eraser is virtually displayed in a
computer window. Consequently, units of length are
standard. You can choose between units in
millimeters or inches.
New in the File menu:
• The View window is used to display and edit IPB
documents created by the Desktop Drawing Tool.
Consequently, the New menu does not exist.
• Closes the IPB document currently displayed in the
Whiteboard window and displays a new IPB
document.
Add New Page in the Edit menu:
• The View window is used to display and edit IPB
documents created by the Desktop Drawing Tool.

Optional Wall-mounting Kit (KX-B063)
Before attempting installation of this wall-mounting kit, we strongly recommend consulting with the building manager,
engineer, or architect. The installer needs to know the type of construction used for the wall intended for this
installation and the location of wall studs. Selection of hardware is critical for safe wall-mounting, and depends on
the nature of wall construction. Installation should not occur until this consultation takes place.
Caution
• Do not attach the electronic board to mortared walls. Accidental electric leakage from the wall-mounting
fixture bolts to metal laths or wire laths can cause heat, smoke or a fire.
1. Tools required:
A minimum of eight (8) pieces of appropriate wall-support hardware (molley, toggle, etc.)
NOTE: THIS HARDWARE MUST BE LOCALLY PROCURED, IT IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE KIT.
Drill (and drill bit of correct size) for hardware installation
Screw driver (Both phillips (+) and slotted (–) will be required.)
Tape measure
Tape or thumb-tacks (2 pcs)
Bubble type level
2. Pre-requisites
1. Before installation, make sure that the wall intended for installation is capable of supporting flushmounted.
UB-8325 is 103 kgf (227 lbs.).
2. The position of the intended installation is of adequate size for the selected Panaboard.
UB-8325 is 1,516 mm (H) × 1,550 mm (W) [5' (H) × 5' 2" (W)].
3. An outlet is within 3 m (9' 101/8" ), and not located behind the Panaboard.
■ Accessories
The package box for the optional wall-mounting kit includes the parts noted below; please confirm that all parts are
