CHAPTER 1
Introduction to Flat Panel Displays
Overview
The 3M Touch Systems product line of Flat Panel Display (FPD) touch displays offers
the M1500SS Display for desktop and countertop applications with built-in multimedia
options. The display is available with 3M Touch System’s ClearTek® surface capacitive
touch sensor. Surface capacitive is the touch sensor of choice for public access
applications requiring high levels of durability and reliable performance 24 hours a day,
7 days a week.

Spine
The M1500SS Display features an innovative design adjustable to approximately 60ƒ off
the vertical to accommodate different counter and user heights, a positive locking
mechanism, a touch sensor interface, several mounting options, and built-in cable
management.
The M1500SS Display also features a space saving design, high resolution, low
radiation, and low power consumption. These qualities make the M1500SS Display ideal
for applications that require superior color, resolution, and clarity.

3M™ MicroTouch™ Display M1500SS User Guide
The M1500SS Display is available in a 15" diagonal screen size using active-matrix thinfilm transistor (AM-TFT) liquid crystal display technology. The M1500SS Display
supports a full-screen resolution of 1024 x 768.
Note: The M1500SS Display has a power LED as well as four buttons for using the
on-screen menu and adjusting the video display. Refer to Chapter 3 for more
information on these controls.
Native Video Resolution on a Flat Panel Display
Flat panel displays, unlike CRTs, are optimized to run at one resolution. A flat panel
display has discrete points that determine the exact location of a pixel. Each flat panel
display has an exact number of pixels associated with it. There is a one-to-one mapping
between the number of pixels and the video resolution.
A flat panel display should be used at the resolution dictated by the number of pixels on
the panel for optimum performance. For example, the M1500SS Display has 1024 pixels
across the screen and 768 lines of pixels down the screen and can accurately display this
resolution at full screen.
Options for Using Other Video Resolutions
The M1500SS Display supports all standard resolutions up to their respective native
resolution for display setup. Refer to Table 1 for additional details. Many video cards
initially display a screen image at the SVGA or VGA resolution. By supporting these
resolutions, the display can display the desktop controls that let you change to the
optimal resolution of 1024 x 768.

you need to install a video card or a video driver, refer to your computer
documentation for instructions.
• Your PC must have a unique interrupt request (IRQ) available to the touch sensor
COM port. The touch sensor cannot share an IRQ with another device.
When choosing your workspace, select a sturdy, level surface. Also, make sure you can
easily access the back of the touch display and the computer. Easy access helps ensure a
smooth setup of the touch display.

Adjusting the Viewing Angle
The yoke and spine were designed with touch stability in mind. This innovative design
keeps the display face stable during touch. The unit can be adjusted to any locked
position from 0 up to 60 degrees from vertical. This allows for users of different heights
to view the display at the angle that best suits them with no degradation in touch
stability.
Turn the positive locking mechanism adjustment knob one quarter turn (horizontal to
vertical) to loosen. Adjust the M1500SS Display by pushing on the top front of the
display until the screen is at the best viewing angle for you. Then turn the adjustment
knob a 1/4 turn back to lock in place. To raise the display back to vertical, unlock the
adjustment knob, lift slightly on the adjustment knob and pull up.

position it is unlocked.
Always maintain adequate ventilation to protect the display from overheating and to
ensure reliable and continued operation.
Installing the Video Card and Video Driver
Before you can connect your touch display, make sure your computer has a video card
and driver already installed for the display. The video driver is supplied by the video
card manufacturer and may be found on the disks that came with your computer. If you
need information on installing a video card or video driver, refer to your computer
documentation for instructions.

3M™ MicroTouch™ Display M1500SS User Guide
Using the Standard Controls for the Video Card
In addition to the standard controls on the display, each video card has several controls
that let you adjust the display settings. The software and driver for each video card is
unique. In most cases, you adjust these settings by using a program or utility provided
by the manufacturer of the video card.
For example, you can use the Windows Display Properties control panel to adjust the
desktop area (resolution), color depth, and refresh rate. Whenever you change these
settings or calibrate the touch sensor, the image size, position, or shape may change.
This behavior is normal. You can readjust the image using the display controls described
in Chapter 3 of this guide.
For more information on adjusting the desktop area (resolution), color depth, or refresh
rate, refer to your video card documentation.
Multimedia Features
The M1500SS Display comes with multimedia features built-in. It has a microphone and
speakers built into the back of the display bezel and includes multimedia cables. These
cables can be connected from either the rear of the display or in front -- two separate sets
of jacks are included.
Figure 7 Multimedia Cables

Installing Touch Software
A MicroTouch™ MT 7 driver is required to operate your M1500SS Display. To enhance
your touch experience, refer to the MT7 Software User Guide for complete instructions.
These drivers and relevant technical documentation can be found on the enclosed 3M
Touch Solutions CD (31197) and are also available for download from our website at
www.3m.com/touch. After the software is installed, restart your computer to load and
activate the touch sensor driver.
The Touch Solutions CD includes the touch sensor driver and control panel that enable
your touch sensor to work with your computer. When you install the CD included with
your display, MT7 Software will be automatically loaded on your system. MT7 software
provides touch sensor drivers for Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.
For older systems, software is provided on the CD – select the Browse CD option to
enable you to load legacy touch software for Windows NT 4.0, Windows 95 or 98, or
Windows Me. Because these are legacy systems, make sure to install the TouchWare
software before connecting the USB touch sensor cable to your system.
To complete the setup of your touch display, make sure you calibrate the touch sensor.

Use the Ż/left and Ź/right arrow buttons to scroll through the image menu.
Phase: If the phase of your display is not fine-tuned, you may observe unstable
horizontal noise lines and cross-talk stretching from the edge of small windows on your
display.
If you change your display to Windows shut down mode, this noise will be more visible,
and easier to eliminate. Click on the "Start" button at the bottom right side, and then
click Shut Down. This will bring you to the Windows shutdown mode. After finishing
phase adjustment, click on the "Cancel” to return to your original Windows display.
Clock: If the clock setting of your image is not fine-tuned, you may observe periodic
vertical bars of video noise on your image. These bars of noise are usually adjusted out
when an Auto Configuration is performed. If the bars of noise are still present, this
setting can be adjusted manually.
Adjust this setting so that either the vertical bars of noise are replaced by an even amount
of noise across the whole screen, or the noise disappears completely.
If you do an Auto Config, the display will try to find the best Clock/Phase setting. If you
are not satisfied with the auto adjustment, fine-tune the phase manually as described
above.

CHAPTER 4
Maintenance and Troubleshooting
If you have a problem setting up or using your display, you may be able to solve it
yourself. Before calling 3M Touch Systems, try the suggested actions that are
appropriate to the problems you are experiencing with the display. You may also want to
consult your video card user’s manual for additional troubleshooting advice.
