7” Modero G5 Wall Mount Touch Panel Overview

The MD-702 (FG5969-55BL) 7” Modero G5 Wall Mount Touch Panel features the G5 Graphics Engine, Quad Core Processor, and a capacitive multi-touch display. This panel now supports two operational modes: as a customizable Modero panel to be configured with RPM or TPDesign5/Netlinx Studio, or as an Acendo Book scheduling panel which connects directly to popular room scheduling software.

After ensuring proper placement, cut an opening in the mounting surface for the Backbox, using the included Installation Template as a guide Note: Consider making the actual cutout opening slightly smaller than the provided dimensions. This provides a margin of error if the opening needs to be expanded. Too little wall material removed is always better than too much.

2. Thread the incoming cables (Ethernet and Micro-USB) from their terminal locations through the surface opening, leaving enough slack in the wiring to accommodate any re-positioning of the panel.

3. Remove the Backbox knockouts and thread incoming cables through the knockouts.

4. Gently push the Backbox into the mounting surface.

• This Backbox uses two Locking Tabs to secure the Backbox to the wall. For typical mounting surfaces, such as drywall, the locking tabs are the primary method for securing the Backbox to the wall. • To ensure a stable installation, the thickness of the wall material must be a minimum of .50 inches (1.27cm) and a maximum of .875 inches (2.22cm). The mounting surface should also be smooth and flat. For thin walls or solid surfaces, use mounting screws (not included) - see FIG. 2.

5. Extend the Locking Tabs by tightening the Locking Tab screws until snug (FIG. 3):

MD-702 Installation

The MD-702 can be installed via several mounting options: Use the included clear plastic Backbox to attach the panel to most standard wall materials. Other optional AMX mounting solutions include the MSA-MMK2-07 Multi Mount Kit, the MSA-AMK2-07 Any Mount Kit, CB-MXSA-07 Rough-In Box and the MSA-RMK-07 Rack Mount Kit. Refer to the Quick Start Guide included with each mounting kit for instructions.

Power Over Ethernet

Power for the MD-702 is supplied via Power Over Ethernet (PoE), utilizing an AMXcertified PoE injector such as the PS-POE-AF-TC PoE Injector (FG423-83). Connect the incoming Ethernet cable to the RJ-45 port on the MD-702.

Plastic Backbox

The MD-702 comes with a clear plastic Backbox (FIG. 2). This Backbox can be used to mount the touch panel into most standard wall materials. The Backbox can also used to mount the panel into other mounting options.

FIG. 3


CAUTION: The maximum recommended torque to screw in the locking tabs on the plastic Backbox is 5 IN-LB [56 N-CM]. Excessive torque on the tab screws can strip out the locking tabs or damage the Backbox.

• Extend the Locking Tabs only AFTER the Backbox is inserted into the wall.

• When installing the Backbox, make sure that it is positioned correctly. • The Backbox is clear to allow visual confirmation that the tabs have been extended and are gripping the wall, as well as in assisting with removal if necessary.

STEP 2: Insert Connectors on the Touch Panel

1. Before installing the touch panel into the Backbox, connect the Ethernet and USB cables to the rear of the panel.

2. Remove power at the terminal end before continuing with the installation.

Note: Do not disconnect the connectors from the touch panel. The unit must be installed with the attached connectors before being inserted into the mounting surface.

STEP 3: Secure the Touch Panel To the Backbox

The Backbox uses notches on the front edges (top and bottom) to secure the panel into place. Follow the steps below to install the panel into the Backbox, starting the upper edge of the touch panel:


1. Center the top edge of the touch panel against the upper outside edge of the Backbox and latch the top of the panel onto the Backbox top-hooks (FIG. 4): Use the top-hooks on the top edge of the Backbox to latch the top of the touch panel into place Plastic Backbox MD-702 Touch Panel Mounting holes (X4) for use with mounting screws (not included) Use these mounting holes to install the Backbox into thin walls (less than 0.5” thick) or solid surfaces Mounting holes for installing the Backbox into a Rough-In Box (screws not included)

FIG. 2


STEP 1: Install the Plastic Backbox

Use the included Installation Template to determine the placement of the Backbox in the mounting surface. The outside edges of the template are the same dimensions as the touch panel, which allows you to troubleshoot possible conflicts with wall edges, doors, and other potential obstacles.

FIG. 4

ENGAGING THE TOP EDGE OF THE PANEL WITH THE TOP HOOKS ON THE BACKBOX 2. Gently press the top edge of the touch panel into place to engage the panel’s notches and the top-hooks on the Backbox.

LOWER TABS- Gently Press Into Place

1. Swing the bottom edge of the touch panel into position until it rests against the lower outside edge of the Backbox.

Note: If a gap is observed between the panel and the Backbox, or binding is felt while locking down the panel, stop and verify there are no cables in the electronics may be damaged.

2. Gently press the bottom edge of the panel gently but firmly and ONLY IN THE PLACES INDICATED BELOW until the tabs click into place to secure the panel (FIG. 5):

FIG. 5

SNAPPING THE BOTTOM EDGE OF THE PANEL INTO THE BACKBOX 3. Reconnect the terminal Ethernet and USB to their respective locations on either the Ethernet port or NetLinx Master.

Removing the MD-702 from the Backbox

The tabs on the bottom edge of the Backbox lock down the MD-702 and must be unlatched in order to remove the touch panel from the Backbox. To do this, you’ll need a small flathead screwdriver


1. With a small flathead screwdriver, carefully press straight into the access holes on the bottom of the bezel (near the center of the bottom tabs) to disconnect the two bottom clips (FIG. 6): 2.

Use your other hand to stabilize the front of the touch panel (FIG. 7): Lift the bottom edge of the panel by the plastic bezel and gently rotate up and away from the base

Note: To avoid damaging the panel, always pull on the plastic bezel - do not pull on the glass.

Note: Hold the panel to prevent it from falling once the bottom edge is free

3. With the edge of the touch panel free, carefully lift up and out to remove the touch panel from the Backbox. Be careful not to pull on the cables or connectors.

Powering On/Off Modero G5 Panels

Modero G5 touch panels may be powered on by touching and holding the select Power Off on the on-screen menu (FIG. 8):

FIG. 8


Selecting Modero Or Acendo

MD-702/MD-1002 panels will be configured in the field to operate as either a Modero G5 panel or as an Acendo Book scheduling panel.

Upon first boot, a wizard application allows the user to select the operating mode for the device to run – either Modero G5 or Acendo Book Once the operating mode is configured, that operating mode will be set from then on.

In order to change operating mode after one was selected, a Factory Data Reset will reset the operating mode back to a point to which the user can select the operating mode using the wizard application.

Select Operational Mode

Select either Modero G5 or Acendo Book mode (will prompt panel reboot). This option is presented for brand new units or a unit that is reset to factory settings. (FIG. 9) When Modero G5 is selected (in Fig 9), this is the default screen until a UI is loaded via USB or TPDesign5.
