This product is highly professionalized equipment. The installation of an OS
into a machine without any preloaded OS could be a major difficulty for
average user or obstacle by possibly unintentional negligence even for PC
veterans to accomplish such a task. Therefore, OS installation into a system
without preloaded OS is highly discouraged. Posiflex Technology, Inc. shall

not be responsible for any technical support to questions on this aspect.
It is very important that you check the following operational guidelines:
This terminal must NOT be operated in an environment with restricted
ventilation. There must be at least 25 mm air clearance around any top or side
ventilation holes with a free flow of air around the unit at ALL times for the
Operating Environment
The equipment must not be operated or stored in extremes of both temperature
and humidity/moisture. (Operating range 0°C to 40°C and up to 80%
humidity – non condensing, max. wet bulb 26°C)
Touch Open Cover
Please refer to the previous chapter PRODUCT PICTURE during this part in
order to find out the buttons. A gentle tap on the touch open cover at left side
of the main unit will open the cover and show the power switch at top area. It
is preferable to keep this door closed through daily operation.
There must always be at least 10 seconds waiting before switching on again
once the system is powered off successfully.

Hardware Power Switch
The power switch located in the touch open cover of the main unit is a tactile
pushbutton switch. This switch controls the power on/off of the system. This
switch turns the system on when pushed only when external power is present.
This switch turns the system off when pushed again during power on status.
However, if the system hangs due to any reason such as software resource
conflict a simple push on the switch may fail to turn off the power. In this case,
please utilize the forced power off feature by pressing the switch and holding
for within 10 seconds. In case the turmoil is so vigorous that some hardware
registers may be confused causing trouble for system restart or even this forced
power off, please disconnect the UPS battery if installed and the AC power
supply for few minutes. This may reset all hardware registers.
This switch can also be programmed as an ON only switch. That means, if the
application program issues a command compliant with the XT series technical
manual, this switch will always turn the system on when activated, but will not
power off the system when pushed again (the forced power off feature will not
work in this mode). When using this feature, please make sure that the
software application has the ability to power off the machine. In preloaded
Windows, “Posiflex Power Switch Manager” in “Posiflex Tools” in the
Program Files helps managing these functions.
Software Support Features
The XT series provides a software power off command for application
program maneuvers. The XT also provides a specific means for the software to
detect if the system is working on external or UPS battery power. Due to this
feature, compatible software applications have the ability to change operating
conditions when running on standard/backup power. The software programmer
may take reference from the KS technical manual to apply such features.
Automatic Power on Control
The XT system may also turn on according to some preset conditions such as
Alarm Clock Wake Up or LAN Wake Up.
To utilize Alarm Clock Wake Up function, the user should enter the BIOS
setup by pressing “Del” key at system boot up, choose in “Power Management
Setup” and enable the “Resume by Alarm” for Alarm Clock Wake Up. Save
the configuration and exit the BIOS setup program. The Preset Power On
Control will then be ready. For LAN wakeup, the item “PCI Express PM
Function” must be enabled in “Power Management Setup” and an operating
caller system connected through LAN to the system is required. It also requires
a qualified networking technician to check the LAN chip ID of the system for
Part 12
the caller system to wake up.
When the XT system is turned off after a successful boot up, the preset
automatic power on functions will keep monitoring for the preset conditions]
and turn on the system when the preset conditions are met.
Please note that if the XT system is improperly turned off before a complete
boot up procedure, the above preset power on control functions will be
disabled until next turning off after a complete boot up.
In the left side of the main unit below the power switch, there are brightness
adjust push button switches and one USB connector. Each single press on the
+ or – button changes the LCD panel display brightness by a small amount.
When you press and hold the button the change will keep on until release or
extreme condition matched. For those control buttons, please refer to the
previous chapter.
Main LCD Display
For best viewing result, please set your display resolution at 1024 x 768 for
15” LCD. The system Video Memory is shared with system memory, and
supports DVMT 4.0.
VGA Port
The VGA port in the XT-3015 system supports either a separately connected
LCD monitor or touch monitor. To support the DC power to the Posiflex LCD
display, have a qualified technician to set the power supply in XT main unit
through the VGA connector according to Posiflex technical information. Do
not connect other monitor to this port before the power in this port is
Note: When 2nd display is connected, the screen display of system boot up
stage and application in some OS will be smaller than usual in both 1st and 2nd
In XT-3015 system, there are 3 serial ports in form of DB 9 pin male
connectors and 1 in form of 10 pin RJ45 type modular connector available.
DB 9 serial ports can supply a +5 V and +12V DC after proper BIOS and
jumper setup. However, do not connect any other device to this port before
the power in this port is disabled.
Part 13
In XT-3015 system, the parallel port can be available only through use of the
optional conversion cable. It should be connected to the special connector
inside the service window as described earlier. The other end of the cable is the
normal 25 pin D sub female LPT connector.
All paragraphs below are applicable for models with touch panel only. The
user of those models without touch panel can ignore them and consider this
user’s manual ends here.
Mouse Emulation
When the touch driver is properly installed, this touch panel works exactly like
a standard mouse for each interface. However, if the system is running under
safe mode, the touch panel calibration may become unsatisfactory due to
disabled drivers. It is recommended to use a standard USB mouse or keyboard
in this mode.
All the below mentioned mouse emulation functions can be manipulated
through relevant software. The system can give a beep and a click on the left
button of a mouse at the point when the touch panel is touched. If the point
touched is dragged across the screen surface, it works as the mouse drag and
drop feature. If the point is touched, released and touched within a short time
interval, it is double-clicking left button of the mouse. To obtain the effect like
clicking on the right button of a mouse, touching any point on the screen
surface after touching the right-click sticky button results as a click on the right
button of the mouse at that point.
Touch Manager
Touch Terminal Manager for each type of touchscreen is available for user to
set up touchscreen functions. If your system is preloaded with the OS of your
choice, the chances are the Manager is already installed on your system.
Nevertheless, you can also download the Manager from our website:
Visit us at http://www.posiflex.com, and click Support on the main
menu bar.
On Support page, click Download on the left to access Download page.
In Search by keyword search bar on Download page, type “Touch
Terminal Manager”, and then press Enter.
In the search results, select and download the Manager that suits the
touchscreen type of your system.
