Introduction
5–2
The C-more touch panels include a series of built-in System Setup Screens that allow the user
to view detailed information about the panel, adjust certain features, configure
communications, test various functions of the touch panel, backup & restore system, recipe, log
and project memory, clear memory, and reset all values and conditions back to the original
factory defaults.
The following is presented to give the user a detailed step by step look at 1.) how to access the
System Setup Screens, 2.) what adjustments and features are available, 3.) when and why the
feature may need to be adjusted or used, and 4.) how to adjust and/or interrupt the features.
The System Setup Screens from the Main Menu are split into four different categories to make
it simple for the user to select the area for viewing information, making adjustments, testing the
touch panel or working with the internal and/or external memory options. The four Main
Menu selections are:
Information
Here you will find detailed information in regards to the touch panel model,
the panel’s name, version information for the hardware, boot loader and
firmware, clock source, battery status and beeper status. Also available are
details on the panel’s internal memory and the status of any external
memory devices, such as CompactFlash memory and USB pen drives. Communication port
details are also available in this area, as well as an error log to help in trouble-shooting the
system.
Information
Setting
This is the area for 1.) making adjustments to the internal clock,
2.) adjusting the brightness (color panels) and contrast (grayscale panels) of
the display, 3.) adjusting (calibrating) the touch panel, 4.) enabling or
disabling the internal beeper, and 5.) the IP Address of the touch panel can
also be configured from this menu area. Access to the IP Address Setting screen is covered later
in this chapter.
Setting
Test Menu
From this sub menu, the user can 1.) test the touch panel, 2.) test the
display, 3.) test the communication ports, and 4.) test both the internal
beeper or the audio line output, if a speaker with an amplifier is connected.
A WAV sound file is system provided for the audio line output test.
Test Menu
Memory
Select the Memory menu item to either backup or restore your project, log
data, recipe data and/or system memory. Selections can be made to backup
to optional CompactFlash memory or USB pen drive memory. The menu
selections also give the user the ability to clear the memory, and there is also
a selection to reset all of the touch panel settings back to the original factory defaults.

Chapter Organization
The System Setup Screens chapter is organized in the following order:
1.) Accessing the system setup screens with no project loaded will take the user directly to the
Main Menu – page 5-4.
2.) Accessing the system setup screens with a project loaded will first take the user to a dialog box
warning the user that the panel will stop running and waits for an acknowledgement – page 5-5.
a.) If a password is not enabled, the user is taken directly to the Main Menu after the warning
message is acknowledged – page 5-6.
b.) If a password is enabled, then the Enter Security Code keypad is presented after the warning
message is acknowledged – page 5-6.
3.) How to enable a password in the C-more Programming software is explained – page 5-7.
4.) System Setup Screens organized as shown in the following flowchart:

Project Executed from CompactFlash (CF Slot #1)

If a CompactFlash card is located in the CF1 slot at the time a project is transferred to the panel,
the project will be stored on the CompactFlash card, not in the internal Built-in FLASH
memory.
If CF1 slot contains a CompactFlash with a project and:
1.) The touch panel’s power is cycled, then
2.) The project file stored on the CompactFlash is loaded into the touch panel’s internal DRAM
memory and executed. Please note that the project stored in the panel’s internal FLASH memory is
NOT loaded into the internal DRAM memory when a CompactFlash memory card is present. Any
project in the internal FLASH memory is cleared.
WARNING: During power up with a CompactFlash plugged into the CF1 Slot, please do not remove the
memory card from the slot. Damage to the CompactFlash and possibly the touch panel may result.
WARNING: After a firmware update, the project files which are located in either the touch panel’s internal
FLASH memory or the CompactFlash plugged into CF1 Slot are cleared. The programming software will
need to be used to Transfer the project file back into the panel. If you wish to retain the project on the
CompactFlash, power down the panel and remove the CompactFlash before performing a firmware
upgrade.
Increasing Project Memory Size using a CompactFlash in CF1 Slot:
If a project is transferred to the panel with a CompactFlash card in CF1 Slot, the Font and
Recipe data files are not included in the 10MB (40MB for 12” and 15” models) project size.
Therefore using CF1 can allow a project to be loaded that is larger than 10MB if the excessive
size is caused by Fonts and/or Recipe Sheets.

Press the Next button to continue to Step 2.
Note: If you have a memory device inserted into the proper port on the touch panel, but it doesn’t show up
as highlighted in Step 1 of the Backup setup screen, then try a different device to determine if the memory
device is defective or if there is a possible problem with the memory device connection. It may not be
compatible with the panel. This rarely happens with CF memory, but some USB pen drives are not USB 1.1
compatible and will not work with C-more touch panels. Also, some USB pen drives may take several minutes
before they are recognized by the panel.

Memory – Restore
5–44
The Memory - Restore function is used to:
1.) Restore a project previously backed up on a
CompactFlash card or USB pen drive memory
device to the same panel. See Memory - Backup
on page 5-37.
2.) Copy a project from one panel to another
panel using a memory device to physically
transport the data files.
3.) Restore a project into the panel that was
transfered to an “External Memory Device” using
the C-more Programming Software.
4.) Restore Recipe Sheet(s) previously backed up
to a memory device or copied to the memory
device using a PC.
The available memory devices will be displayed
showing the total and free available memory for
that device. If the device is not available, it will be
grayed out. The Next button is grayed out until a
device is selected.
The Cancel button can be pressed at any time to
return to the Memory Menu screen.
This is an example of a USB memory device
selected to be used for restoring the data file(s).
The selected device is highlighted. Pressing again
unselects it.
When there are more than two available restore
devices, the one selected will be highlighted. If
there is only one available memory device, it
needs to be highlighted in order to go to the next
step.
Press the Next button to continue to continue to
Step 2.
Note: If you have a memory device inserted into the proper port on the touch panel, but it doesn’t show up
as highlighted in Step 1 of the Restore setup screen, then try a different device to determine if the memory
device is defective or if there is a possible problem with the memory device connection. It may not be
compatible with the panel. This rarely happens with CF mamory, but some USB pen drives are not USB 1.1
compatible and will not work with C-more touch panels. Also, some USB pen drives may take several minutes
before they are recognized by the panel.
