MSD-431-L 4.3” Modero S Series® Wall Mount Touch Panel
The Modero S
is a touch panel family sophisticated enough for room
control yet priced right for the most cost sensitive installations, including small
huddle spaces and dedicated room scheduling. The smallest of our Modero S
Series wall mount touch panels, the MSD-431-L 4.3” Wall/Flush Mount Touch
Panel (FG2265-03) still features the advanced technology empowering users to
conduct seamless meetings including VoIP, brilliant 24-bit color depth, PoE
connectivity, and streaming video.

Panel Connectors and Wiring
FIG. 1 shows the connectors located on the back of the MSD-431-L.
Power for the MSD-431-L via Power Over Ethernet
Power for the MSD-431-L is supplied via Power Over Ethernet (PoE), utilizing an
AMX-certified PoE injector such as the PS-POE-AF-TC PoE Injector
(FG423-83) or other approved AMX PoE power source. The incoming Ethernet
cable should be connected to the RJ-45 port on the MSD-431-L.
Note: The Micro A/B USB port is used only for firmware uploads, as it is
inaccessible when the device is installed within its back box.
Installing the MSD-431-L
The MSD-431-L can be installed either directly into a solid surface environment,
using either solid surface screws or the included locking tabs for different
mounting options. For more information, please refer to the MSD-431-L/MST431 Operation/Reference Guide, available at
The MSD-431-L is contained within a clear outer housing known as the back
box. This back box is removed when installing the device into a wall or into a
Rough-In Box.
Installing the MSD-431-L into a wall
The back box (FIG. 2) is designed to attach the panel to most standard wall and
solid surface materials. This back box has two locking tabs (one on the top and
one at the bottom) to help lock the back box to the wall. These locking tabs are
only extended AFTER the back box is inserted into the wall. Using the locking
tabs is highly recommended for standard mounting surfaces such as walls. For
thin walls and solid surfaces, use #4 mounting screws (not included).

FIG. 2 MSD-431-L Back Box (Side View)
WARNING: When installing the back box, 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 back box may be difficult without having
access to the back of the wall or causing damage to the wall.
Note: In order to guarantee a stable installation of the MSD-431-L, the thickness
of the wall material must be a minimum of .50 inches (1.27cm) and a maximum
of .875 inches (2.22cm). The surface should also be smooth and flat.
WARNING: The maximum recommended torque to screw in the locking tabs on
the plastic back box 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 plastic back box.
After ensuring proper placement, cut out the mounting surface. Use the
included mounting template (68-2265-01) or refer to the dimensions in the
MSD-431-L/MST-431 Operation/Reference Guide, available from, for more information.
CAUTION: Making sure the actual cutout opening is slightly smaller than the
provided dimensions is highly recommended. This action provides the installer
with a margin for error if the opening needs to be expanded. Too little wall
material removed is always better than too much.
Remove either the top or the bottom knockout from the back box,
depending upon the required installation. Thread the incoming wiring
through the hole in the rear of the back box.
Thread the incoming Ethernet wiring from their terminal locations through
the surface opening and through the access slot.
Push the back box flat into the mounting surface and secure with either the
locking tabs or #4 mounting screws (not included). 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
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.
Latch the panel onto the top hooks on the back box and rotate it down.
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.
Press the Device Name field to open the Device Name keypad.
Enter a unique Device Name assignment for the panel and press OK.
Accessing the Connection & Networks Page
From the Settings Page, select Connection & Networks. If the page is
password protected, this opens a password keypad.
Enter the panel password into the keypad (the default is 1988) and select
OK to access the page.
Connecting to a Master
The panel requires that you establish the type of connection you want to make
between it and your Master.
In the Connection & Networks page:
Select Master Connection to open the Master Connection page (FIG. 4).
Reconnect the terminal Ethernet and USB to their respective locations on
either the Ethernet port or NetLinx Master.
Uninstalling the MSD-431-L
In order to access the back of the MSD-431-L, such as to install a USB
connection for firmware upgrades, the device may need to be uninstalled from
the back box. To uninstall the MSD-431-L:
From the bottom, pull gently outward from the back box. Gently rock the
panel back and forth to free the bottom from the back box.
Rotate it up to release the top latch hooks, and carefully pull the device
free from the back box. Take care not to damage or pull the connections on
the back of the device.
Configuring the MSD-431-L
The MSD-431-L is equipped with Settings Pages that allow you to set and
configure various features on the panel. For more information on connecting and
configuring the MSD-431-L to a network, please refer to the Modero S Series
Programming Guide, available at
