3M Touch Systems Proprietary Information
CHAPTER 1
Introduction to Flat Panel Displays
The 3M Touch Systems product line of Flat Panel Display (FPD) touch monitors offers
the M150 monitor for desktop and countertop applications with built-in multimedia
options.
Yoke
Adjustment Knob
Spine
The newly redesigned M150 monitor features an innovative design adjustable to
approximately 60° off the vertical to accommodate different counter and user heights, a
positive locking mechanism, a weighted base for additional stability, a touch screen
interface, several mounting options, and built-in cable management.
The M150 monitor also features a space saving design, high resolution, low radiation,
and low power consumption. These qualities make the M150 FPD touch monitor ideal
for applications that require superior color, resolution, and clarity.
The M150 FPD is available in a 15" diagonal screen size using active-matrix thin-film
transistor (AM-TFT) liquid crystal display technology. The M150 monitor supports a
full-screen resolution of 1024 x 768.
Note: The M150 FPD has a power LED as well as four buttons for using the on-screen menu and
adjusting the video display. Refer to Chapter 3 for more information on these controls.
3M Touch Systems Proprietary Information

M150 FPD Monitor Installation Guide
Capacitive and Resistive Options
The monitor is available with 3M Touch System’s ClearTek® capacitive touch screen.
Capacitive is the touch screen of choice for public access applications requiring high
levels of durability and reliable performance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
For those applications that require flexibility of input, including gloved hand use, we
offer the M150 with a 5-wire resistive touch screen. This technology has been tested in a
laboratory environment to withstand 35 million mechanical touches without noticeable
degradation to the surface.1
Native Video Resolution on a Flat Panel Display
Flat panel displays, unlike CRTs, are optimized to run at one resolution. A flat panel
display has discrete points that determine the exact location of a pixel. Each flat panel
display has an exact number of pixels associated with it. There is a one-to-one mapping
between the number of pixels and the video resolution.
A flat panel display should be used at the resolution dictated by the number of pixels on
the panel for optimum performance. For example, the M150 monitor has 1024 pixels
across the screen and 768 lines of pixels down the screen and can accurately display this
resolution at full screen.
Options for Using Other Video Resolutions
The M150 monitor supports all standard resolutions up to their respective native
resolution for monitor setup. Many video cards initially display a screen image at the
SVGA or VGA resolution. By supporting these resolutions, the monitor can display the
desktop controls that let you change to the optimal resolution of 1024 x 768.

CHAPTER 2
Setting Up Your M150 FPD Monitor
This chapter describes how to set up and integrate your 3M Touch Systems M150 FPD
monitor into a touch application. You need to complete the following tasks:
• Unpack the components
• Connect the video, touch screen, and power cables
• Power on the monitor and test your setup
• Install the touch screen software
• Calibrate the touch screen
System Requirements
The M150 flat panel touch monitor requires a personal computer (PC). This touch
monitor will not work with Apple Macintosh computers.
The requirements for your PC are as follows:
• Your PC must have an available RS-232 serial communication (COM) port or USB port. You
connect the touch screen to this port.
• Your PC must have a video card and video driver already installed for the monitor. If you
need to install a video card or a video driver, refer to your computer documentation for
instructions.
• Your PC must have a unique interrupt request (IRQ) available to the touch screen COM port.
The touch screen cannot share an IRQ with another device.
• If the only serial port available on your PC has 25 pins, you will need a 9-pin to 25-pin
adapter.
When choosing your workspace, select a sturdy, level surface. Also, make sure you can
easily access the back of the touch monitor and the computer. Easy access helps ensure a
smooth setup of the touch monitor.
Note: Before setting up your M150 FPD, refer to the Important Safety Information section at the
beginning of this document.

“Yes” is selected an automatic configuration is started. After the process is completed
successfully, a confirmation box “Does this image look correct?” is displayed. If image is
correct, select “Yes” to exit confirmation box. If image isn’t correct, select “No” to go to
PHASE item adjustment and adjust the phase manually to the best image quality.
If you change your display to Windows shut down mode, this noise will be more visible,
and easier to eliminate. Click on the "Start" button and then click Shut Down. This will
bring you to the Windows shutdown mode. After finishing phase adjustment, click on the

Phase: If the phase of your monitor is not fine-tuned, you may observe unstable
horizontal noise lines and cross-talk stretching from the edge of small windows on your
display.
If you change your display to Windows shut down mode, this noise will be more visible,
and easier to eliminate. Click on the "Start" button at the bottom right side, and then click
Shut Down. This will bring you to the Windows shutdown mode. After finishing phase
adjustment, click on the "Cancel” to return to your original Windows display.
Clock: If the clock setting of your image is not fine-tuned, you may observe periodic
vertical bars of video noise on your image. These bars of noise are usually adjusted out
when an Auto Configuration is performed. If the bars of noise are still present, this
setting can be adjusted manually.
Adjust this setting so that either the vertical bars of noise are replaced by an even amount
of noise across the whole screen, or the noise disappears completely.
If you do an Auto Config, the monitor will try to find the best Clock/Phase setting. If you
are not satisfied with the auto adjustment, fine-tune the phase manually as described
above.

Maintenance and Troubleshooting
If you have a problem setting up or using your monitor, you may be able to solve it
yourself. Before calling 3M Touch Systems, try the suggested actions that are
appropriate to the problems you are experiencing with the monitor. You may also want to
consult your video card user’s manual for additional troubleshooting advice.
Maintaining Your Touch Monitor
To maintain your display and keep your monitor operating at peak performance:
• Keep your monitor and screen clean.

adequate ventilation to protect the display from overheating and to ensure reliable and
continued operation.
Touch Screen Care and Cleaning
The touch screen requires very little maintenance. 3M Touch Systems recommends that
you periodically clean the glass touch screen surface.
Typically, an isopropyl alcohol and water solution ratio of 50:50 is the best cleaning
agent for your touch screen. You can also use straight isopropyl alcohol. In addition, 3M
Screen and Keyboard Cleaner CL680 has been tested and approved for this use.
CAUTION

solvents which may result in minor or moderate injury or property damage:
• Follow all instructions and recommendations in the manufacturer's Material Safety Data
Sheet and product label.
• Be sure to follow solvent manufacturer's precautions and directions for use when using any
solvents
• It is important to avoid using any caustic chemicals on the touch screen. Do not use any
vinegar-based solutions.
