Warnings
WARNING
l
l
A minimum of two people are required to mount the DualBoard to avoid personal injury and/or damage to the board.
Stabilize the floor stand before repositioning the board. To stabilize the floor stand, lock down the thumb tabs on the
casters, or push the board against the wall to prevent it from rolling, or place your foot on the floor stand foot.
l
Position the floor stand on a level surface to avoid tipping.
l
Lower the DualBoard to the lowest position before moving the floor stand.
l
Do not hang objects on the DualBoard.
ATTENTION!
l
l
Il faut deux personnes pour fixer le tableau blanc sur le mur ou sur le pied afin d’éviter tout endommagement ou
blessure.
Une seule personne peut ajuster la position du tableau blanc (vers le haut ou le bas) mais assurez-vous que le pied de
sol est bien stable avant de repositionner le tableau. Abaissez les pattes de verrouillage des roulettes avec le pouce,
poussez le pied contre un mur pour éviter qu’il ne roule ou placez l’un de vos pieds sur le pied du tableau pour maintenir
celui-ci en place pendant que vous ajustez sa position.
l
Positionnez le pied du tableau sur une surface plane afin d’éviter tout basculement.
l
Descendez le tableau blanc jusqu’à la position la plus basse du pied avant de le déplacer.
WARNUNG
l
l
Zum Befestigen des DualBoard an der Wand oder am Ständer sind zwei Personen erforderlich, um Personenverletzung
oder Beschädigungen des DualBoard zu vermeiden.
Die Höhe des DualBoard kann auch von einer Person allein verstellt werden, dazu muss jedoch sichergestellt sein,
dass der Ständer des Boards sicher steht und nicht umfallen kann. Dazu entweder die Laufrollen arretieren, den Ständer
gegen eine Wand rollen oder einen Fuß auf den Ständer stellen, damit das DualBoard beim Verstellen der Höhe nicht
wegrollen kann.
l
Stellen Sie den DualBoard-Ständer auf einen ebenen Untergrund, damit er nicht umfallen kann.
l
Stellen Sie das DualBoard vor dem Transport in die niedrigste Position.
l
Hängen Sie keine Gegenstände an das DualBoard.
¡ADVERTENCIA!
l
l
Dos son las personas recomendadas para instalar la pizarra en la pared o en la base de pie con el fin de evitar que se
produzcan heridas personales o se dañe la pizarra.
Una persona puede ajustar la posición de la pizarra hacia arriba o hacia abajo pero asegurándose de que la base de pie
haya quedado estable antes de intentar colocar el tablero. Fije el bloqueo manual de las ruedecillas o coloque la base de
pie contra la pared para evitar que se mueva, también puede poner uno de sus pies en la base para sujetarla cuando
ajuste la posición de la pizarra.
l
Coloque la base de pie de la pizarra en una superficie nivelada para evitar que vuelque.
l
Baje la pizarra hasta la posición más baja de la base de pie antes de transladar esta última.
l
No cuelgue objetos en la pizarra.
AVVERTENZA!

Due persone devono montare la Lavagna sulla parete o su un cavalletto per evitare lesioni o danni alla Lavagna.
Una persona può regolare la posizione della Lavagna verso l’alto o il basso, ma assicurarsi di stabilizzare il cavalletto
prima di tentare di riposizionare la lavagna. Bloccare verso il basso le linguette di bloccaggio sulle rotelle o spingere il
cavalletto contro una parete per impedirne il rotolamento, oppure appoggiare il proprio piede sul piede del cavalletto per
tenerlo fermo mentre si regola la posizione della Lavagna.
l
Posizionare il cavalletto della Lavagna su una superficie piana per evitarne il rovesciamento.
l
Abbassare la Lavagna alla posizione più bassa sul cavalletto prima di spostare il supporto.
l
Non appendere oggetti sulla Lavagna.

Getting Started
DualBoard™ is the first interactive whiteboard designed specifically to allow two interactive electro-magnetic pens to be used
at the same time on a single digital whiteboard.
With DualBoard:
l
l
l
l
l
l
Write, draw, insert images, highlight, interact with, and annotate
over content. Create content in WorkSpace® or project
instructional content from external sources (e.g., PDFs and
webpages).
Participants can work simultaneously, in equal or separate areas
of the board, as defined by the instructor.
Two participants can write on the board at a time ("split screen").
Multiple participants can work in the same display area
("sandbox").
Pens are conveniently seated in the pen charger, ensuring that a
pen is always readily available.
Dry erase markers can be used on the DualBoard.

4 Insert each pen tip-down into the Pen Station.
Mounting the DualBoard
WARNING
It is recommended that a skilled professional assess the strength of the wall and
determine the appropriate hardware required to securely attach the DualBoard to
the wall. A minimum of two people are required to safely lift and mount the
whiteboard to the wall.
Before You Begin
If you are using a ceiling mount projector, ensure that the DualBoard is aligned with the projector
image prior to mounting the board.
NOTE
Due to the sizable number of wall types, hardware for the wall hanger and mounting clips is not
included.
1 Attach the wall hanger to the wall.
2 Hang the DualBoard on the wall hanger.
3 Hook the mounting clips over the back lip of the DualBoard
frame, positioning one mounting clip in each corner at the
bottom of the board.
4 On the wall, mark the location of the mounting clip holes.
5 Install suitable wall anchors into the wall.
6 Install screws to secure the mounting clips to the wall. Use
two screws per mounting clip. The recommended screw
size is number 8 or M4.

Care and Maintenance
This chapter covers basic care and maintenance tips for the DualBoard and pens.
DualBoard
The DualBoard may be used as a standard whiteboard. Expo dry erase whiteboard pens and cleaner are recommended. Use a
soft cloth and gentle cleanser safe for whiteboards to clean the DualBoard.
Pens
Pens are automatically charged when they are correctly seated in the pen charger. The pen charger will beep when the pen is
correctly inserted and a yellow light will indicate that the pen is successfully charging.
If the pen no longer holds a charge, the battery may need replaced. The pen uses one half-cell AAAA NiMH battery.
To change the battery:
1 Depress the small tab and slide the two sections of the digital pen apart.
2 Insert the new battery with the positive (+) terminal facing towards the tip of the pen.
3 Depress the pen tip. The pen LED will flash four times if the battery was correctly inserted.
4 Align the ridges within the rear to the slots in the front section.
5 Slide the two sections together until the tab re-engages.
6 Charge the pen for 8 to 12 hours.
