Introduction to Connectivity Peripherals
Connectivity peripherals for the Point 510 and Point 1600 pen tablet systems are engineered using
modular design principles. Each connectivity peripheral is assembled using components which may be
used in different connectivity peripheral products. Components that make up connectivity peripherals
are shipped unassembled.
This chapter gives an introduction to each connectivity peripheral. Use this chapter to verify that the
components comprising the connectivity peripheral you intend to assemble are present. For details on
assembling these peripherals, refer to the appropriate section of Chapter 2.
Table 1-1 shows the model numbers for connectivity peripheral products. Note that some models are
available in locking and non-locking versions. The components used to assemble each connectivity
peripheral are described later in this chapter.

Introduction to Connectivity Peripherals
Cradle Module
1
The cradle module is a central component in the following connectivity peripherals:
•
•
•
•
port replicator
high-usage cradle
high-connectivity cradle
wall-mount cradle
The cradle module holds the pen tablet when it is inserted in these connectivity peripherals. Two types of
cradle modules are available, a locking version (cradle module FMW26CR8), and a non-locking version
(cradle module FMW26CR28). The non-locking version is not equipped with the tubular lock and cradle
latches that are present on the locking version. The locking version of the cradle module is used to
assemble locking versions of connectivity peripherals while the non-locking version of the cradle module
is used to assemble the non-locking connectivity peripherals.
Cradle
Module
Assembly and installation instructions given in this manual generally refer to the locking version of the
cradle module; however, these instructions also apply to the non-locking version (with the exception of
instructions regarding locking and latching the pen tablet into the cradle module).
The Portable Port Expander
1
The portable port expander is best suited for mobile computing tasks where a quick and temporary
connection to peripheral computer equipment is needed and the pen tablet alone does not provide the
necessary connectivity.
The portable port expander is shipped from the factory fully assembled and ready for use. The portable
port expander is equipped with a mechanical latch and spacer that help secure the portable port expander
to the pen tablet. Before using the portable port expander, confirm that the latch and spacer are installed
on the portable port expander. See “Portable Port Expander” on page 2-1 for details.

The port replicator is best suited for use on a desk top and is designed for use with the FMWDS3 folding
desk stand. The port replicator replicates ports that are built into the pen tablet and adds connectivity that
is not built in. Typically, the port replicator is connected to peripheral computer equipment and the pen
tablet can then be inserted in the port replicator when the peripheral equipment is needed.
High-Usage Cradle
1
The high-usage cradle is designed for applications where the pen tablet is inserted into and removed
from the cradle frequently. The high-usage cradle is equipped with special “high-usage” connector pins
that are designed to withstand a high number of pen tablet insertion and removal operations. This cradle
is best suited for desk-top or counter-top installations where the cradle remains stationary. Locking
versions are equipped with a tubular lock which allows you to lock the pen tablet into the cradle. The
high-usage cradle assembly includes the cradle module and the cradle base. An AC adapter must also be
installed in the cradle base if the cradle is to provide power to the system. (An AC adapter is shipped
with each pen tablet and can also be purchased separately.)

1.
Attach the portable port expander to the cradle module using the two screws provided with the
portable port expander as shown in Figure 2-10. To do so, remove the latch and spacer from the
portable port expander. See “Removing the Latch and Spacer” earlier in this chapter for details.
2.
Insert the cradle module into the cradle base, as shown in Figure 2-10. Note that this may be a snug
fit. The cradle base is equipped with metal brackets, one at each end where the screws fasten the
cradle module. A felt pad is glued onto each bracket. Ensure that the felt pads remain in position
(between the cradle module and the bracket) as you insert the cradle module.
3.
Line up the screw holes in the side of the cradle module with those in the cradle base.
4.
Determine which side the adjustment knob will be installed on. The knob can be installed on either
the right or left side of the cradle module to accommodate right-handed or left-handed users.
5.
Install the #10 screw, lock washer, and nylon washer on one side (opposite the side where the knob
will be installed) to fasten the cradle module to the cradle base. (Do not fully tighten the screw at this
time.) Ensure that the nylon washer is installed closest to the cradle base as shown in Figure 2-10.
6.
Install the knob and spacer on the desired side of the cradle. (Do not tighten the knob in this step.)
7.
Tighten the screw (that you installed in step 5) to 1/2 turn past finger tight and install the cover over
the head of the screw as shown in Figure 2-10. To do so, remove the protective backing and apply the
adhesive side of the cover toward the cradle.

To install the high-connectivity cradle,
1.
Determine the appropriate desktop location. Account for:
• Distance to an AC outlet.
• Distance from desk edge to allow for easy access and positioning of a keyboard and mouse pad.
• Desk or table legs so it is easy to sit in front of and use the system.
• Routing the AC adapter power cord over the back edge of the desk, a notch in the desktop, or
through a hole drilled in the desktop. Ensure that the wire will not get entangled in the user’s feet
or in the feet of those who walk by the desk.
2.
Turn the cradle upside-down.
3.
Attach the keyboard, mouse, and floppy disk drive cables, if used, and other peripheral devices that
will be used with the cradle to the corresponding ports on the bottom of the cradle module. Note that
you can route these cables through the following paths:
• Through the cutouts provided in the front and sides of the cradle base called out in Figure 2-11.
• Out the back of the cradle base via the channel in the middle.
4.
Turn the high-usage cradle upside-up and place it at the desired location. (Be sure the cables are still
routed properly and are not pinched under the cradle base.)
5.
Check for free play of the cradle module by adjusting the viewing angle. To do so, loosen the
adjusting knob and rock the cradle module forward and backward. After you verify that the wires
do not bind or restrict use of the cradle, tighten the knob.
6.
Ensure that the high-usage cradle is in the desired location.
7.
As an optional step, you can secure the cradle at the work site using the following methods:
• Secure the cradle using a Kensington lock. The cradle base provides a Kensington Security
Standard slot, called out in Figure 2-10, which is designed for use with Kensington locking
devices such as the Kensington MicroSaver security system. Contact a Kensington dealer to
obtain an appropriate security product.
• Fasten the cradle to the desktop by installing 1/4” screws in the mounting holes in the cradle
base. The location of the mounting holes in the cradle base are shown in Figure 2-9. (Obtain
screws of an appropriate type for your installation.)
8.
Attach the power cord to the AC adapter and plug the other end into the AC outlet.
The high-connectivity cradle is ready to use. To confirm that external power is being supplied to the pen
tablet by the AC adapter, see “Confirming External Power Is Supplied” at the end of this chapter.
Peripheral connectors on the high-connectivity cradle are described in Table 2-4. Figure 2-11 shows the
location of these connectors on the high-connectivity cradle. Note that the ability of the pen tablet to

Installing the Wall-Mount Cradle
2-19
To prepare the installation site for the wall-mount cradle,
1.
Determine the appropriate location for the wall-mount cradle. Account for the following factors
when selecting the location:
• The wall-mount cradle protrudes from the wall about 3.5 inches with the keyboard tray in the
closed position and about 10 inches with the keyboard tray in the open position. Ensure that the
location you choose is compliant with local building codes and does not obstruct other activities
in the work area.
• The wall-mount cradle mounting plate is designed to attach to a standard 2-wide electrical
junction box. Electrical AC power must be supplied to the wall-mount cradle via the junction box.
Consider the accessibility, routing, and electrical and building code requirements for AC wiring
in the building.
2.
Install the standard 2-wide electrical junction box in the desired location and route AC supply wire
to the junction box. A metal junction box must be used and it must be grounded in accordance with
electrical and building codes.
Warning
Shut off power before working on a circuit. Use approved
materials and conform to all electrical codes.
Use the mounting plate template provided with the wall-mount cradle to determine the appropriate
height and location of the junction box. The template indicates the location of mounting holes and
the cut-out for the junction box in the mounting plate. Ensure that the height of the junction box
allows the user to easily see the pen tablet display screen and access the keyboard. (The template
indicates the center of the pen tablet screen when the pen tablet is in the cradle.)
