Wipe the whiteboard with a clean, soft, dry cloth or a duster.
•
Clean whiteboard parts with a cloth dampened with mild soap and
water. Stubborn stains can be removed using isopropyl alcohol.
•
Do not use spray cleaners (such as whiteboard cleaner). Spray cleaners
will damage the board.
•
Do not use abrasive cleaners or cloths.
Use the care instructions below if your board’s serial number begins with
any other letter:

Appendix 3: Using the TS Wireless option (IR)
TS Wireless uses reflected infrared (IR) light to communicate between
transceivers on your whiteboard and your computer. A direct line of sight
between the transceivers is not needed for reliable communication. Both
transceivers are designed to shine and detect IR light using the ceiling.
Install TS Wireless so both transceivers have an unobstructed view of the
area of the ceiling between the two transceivers. This allows the IR from
each transceiver to bounce over the heads of people writing on the board
and sitting near the computer.
TS Wireless works best when the two transceivers are within 24 feet (7 m)
of one another. The TS wireless option only words with TS interactive
whiteboards.
Ceiling height and material also make a difference in performance. The
higher the ceiling, the closer together the transceivers need to be. A non-IR
reflective ceiling also reduces the range. The 24-foot (7 m) range assumes
a typical office conference room with a ceiling height of between 8 and 12
feet (2.5 and 3.5 m) and a light-colored, acoustic tile ceiling. If your ceiling
is not IR reflective, try using one of your walls. Do this by mounting one
transceiver on the side of your whiteboard and pointing the other
transceiver toward the wall on that side of the whiteboard.
Position the transceiver so the curved edge of the transceiver points
toward the transceiver on the board.

Appendix 3: Using the TS Wireless option (IR)
Adjust the position of the computer and whiteboard transceiver until both
transceivers show a green light, then use the double-sided tape to fasten
the whiteboard transceiver in place.
Once TS Wireless is installed and while a wireless link is established (green
lights on both transceivers) most TS whiteboard systems function just as
they did with the serial or USB cable in place.
Transceiver LEDs
The lights on both transceivers must be green for TS Wireless to work
properly. It is possible for one transceiver to have a green light when the
other transceiver only has an amber light. Be sure to check the lights on
both transceivers before trying to use your whiteboard. It is also possible to
have two green lights without the transceivers being plugged into the serial
ports of the board or the computer and when either the board or the
computer is not turned on.
Under certain circumstances the link breaks between TS Wireless
transceivers. The light in the center of each TS Wireless transceiver tells
you the current status:
OFF:
Transceiver is not receiving power.
AMBER:
Transceiver is receiving power.
GREEN:
Transceiver is receiving power and a signal from the
other transceiver.
Establishing a wireless link
TS Wireless transceivers attempt to establish a wireless link automatically
whenever they are powered on. Connecting power to a TS Wireless
transceiver does two things:
•
The transceiver starts sending out a signal that the other transceiver can
receive.
•
The transceiver starts looking for a signal from the other transceiver.
The green light comes on when the transceiver with the green light can see
the signal from the other transceiver.
PolyVision

Appendix 3: Using the TS Wireless option (IR)
When a wireless link breaks
When the wireless link breaks:
•
The light on one or both of the transceivers turns amber.
•
Data stops flowing between your whiteboard and your computer.
•
Your Webster software may give you an error message.
The Webster software error message can appear even when both
transceiver lights are green. This means that one of the two transceivers
has come unplugged from the serial connection on the board or the PC or
that the board itself has lost power.
Re-establishing a broken link
It is possible to break the link in several ways. The two most obvious ways
are to cover one of the transceivers or to unplug one of the transceivers
from power. It is also possible to break the link by “shadowing” one of the
transceivers. Because you can’t see IR light, you can’t see a shadow in the
IR light being sent from one transceiver to another. A shadow usually
occurs when a large object, like a person, is placed very close to one of the
transceivers so it cannot see or bounce light off of the ceiling.
Remove the cause of the broken link and the link will automatically restore
itself. The troubleshooting section gives you a list of symptoms, probable
causes and cures for broken links.
