Using the PM-311
3.1. Introduction
This chapter describes the basic features and procedures for using the panel PC. It includes the I/O
ports connecting and the touch screen operation.
3.2. Using the USB Ports
USB (Universal Serial Bus) is a hardware interface that enables you to connect multiple devices (such as
printers, mice, keyboards, storage devices, joysticks, digital cameras, and video conference cameras,
etc.) to your tablet pc and up to 127 devices can be attached. Besides, USB’s hot swap capability
allows everything to be plugged in and unplugged without turning the system off.
USB 2.0 is fully backward compatible, you will be able to use an USB 1.1 device in an USB 2.0 compliant
system.
1. Connect the external device to the system.
2. The USB ports support hot plug-in connections. Install the device driver before using the device.
3.3. Using the External Audio System
At the right side of your Tablet PC, you will find the built-in audio ports for connecting Microphone jacks,
earphone or powered speaker.
To connect to an audio jack:
1. Locate the audio ports (Microphone and Headphone) that you want to use to the target device.
2. Plug the jack into the port on the right side of the system.
3.4. Installing the Battery (optional)
PM-311 provides optional external battery to extend the power of your system.
For installing the battery pack, please follow the steps below:
1. Turn off the system.
2. Align the hook wall at the rear side, then place and screw it securely.
19 |
PM-311 User Manual
3. Remove the cover of the external battery connector (as marked  below) and place it on the lower position
(as marked  below).
4. Snap the battery pack into the external battery connector and latch into the hook wall securely.
For removing the external battery, repeat the above steps in reverse order to remove the battery.
3.5. Using a SIM Card
Your PM-311 can be equipped with a 3.5G module (optional) that can work with SIM card. (SIM card is
always working with 3.5G module.)
3.5.1. Inserting a SIM Card
To insert a SIM card into the SIM Card slot:
1. Turn off your System.
The PM-311 must be powered off while the SIM Card is being connected. Otherwise, it is harmful to both devices and it shortens the
