The distinctive appearance Left LED Right LED
Power for the MXD-430 is supplied via Power Over Ethernet (PoE), utilizing an AMX-certified, capacitive touch-compliant PoE injector such as the PS-POE-AF TC High Power PoE Injector (
) or other approved AMX PoE power source. The incoming Ethernet cable should be connected to the RJ45 port on the MXD 430 (FIG. 2). Front Access Slot front rear

The MXD-430 comes with a clear plastic Backbox (designed to attach the panel to most standard wall materials. This Backbox has two locking tabs (one on each side) to help lock the Backbox to the wall. These locking tabs are only extended AFTER the Backbox is inserted into the wall (FIG. 3).. Backbox Locking Tab Access Slot
MXD-430 BACK BOX (SIDE VIEW) • When installing the Backbox, make sure that the assembly is in the correct position and in the correct place. Once the locking tabs are extended and locked into place, removing the Backbox may be difficult without having access to the back of the wall or causing damage to the wall. • In order to ensure a stable installation of the MXD-430, 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 best results, use the included Installation Template (
) to ensure proper placement.
WARNING: Using the Installation Template to select the final placement of the Backbox is highly recommended. 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.
Prepare the area by removing any screws or nails from the drywall before beginning the cutout process.
After ensuring proper placement, cut out the mounting surface, using the (included) Installation Template as a guide.
CAUTION: Making sure the actual cutout opening is slightly smaller than the provided dimensions is highly recommended. This action provides a margin for error if the opening needs to be expanded. Too little wall material removed is always better than too much.
Thread the incoming Ethernet cable through the surface opening.
Leave enough slack in the wiring to accommodate any re-positioning of the panel.
thread the incoming wiring through the hole 5.
Push the backbox flat into the mounting surface and secure with either the locking tabs or #4 mounting screws (not included). Extend the locking tabs on the sides of the Backbox by tightening the screws inside the box until snug. Apply enough pressure to the screw head to keep the box flush with the wall: this ensures that the locking tabs will tighten up against the inside of the wall.
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.
Note: The maximum recommended torque to screw in the locking tabs on the Backbox is 5 IN-LB [56 N-CM]. Applying excessive torque while tightening the tab screws, such as with powered screwdrivers, can strip out the locking tabs or damage the Backbox.
For additional strength, #4 mounting screws (not included) may be secured via mounting holes located at the corners of the MXD-430 (see FIG. 1). In order to prevent damage to the touch panel, make sure that any screws used are flush with the back box, and the back box goes freely into the opening.
Insert each connector into its corresponding location along the back of the MXD-430.
Test the incoming wiring by attaching the panel connections to their terminal locations and applying power. Verify that the panel is receiving power and functioning properly to prevent repetition of 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 drywall.
Remove power before continuing with the installation.
10. Latch the panel onto the bottom hooks on the back box and rotate it up. Press gently but firmly and evenly on the surface of the glass until the top panel snap “clicks” to lock it down.
WARNING: if you see a gap between the panel and the back box, or feel any binding while locking down the panel, stop immediately and verify that no cables or other items are in the way. Do not force the panel into position, as this can cause damage to the touch screen or the panel electronics.
11. Reconnect the terminal Ethernet and USB to their respective locations on either the Ethernet port or NetLinx Master.
