Wiring Guidelines
The MXD-1900L-PAN uses a 12 VDC-compliant power supply to provide power to the
panel via the 2-pin 3.5 mm captive wire PWR connector. Use the previously provided
power requirement information to determine the power draw. The incoming PWR and
GND wires from the power supply must be connected to the corresponding locations
within the PWR connector.
NOTE: Apply power to the panel only after installation is complete.
NOTE: Connecting power to the MXD-1900L-PAN should be done using the included
2-pin 3.5mm captive wire connector included with the device. This connector is
retained within its port with locking screws instead of the pins on each side of standard
captive wire connectors, and using force to insert a standard captive wire connector
may damage the device.
Wiring a Power Connection
To use the 2-pin 3.5 mm captive wire connector with a 12 VDC-compliant power
supply, the incoming PWR and GND wires from the external source must be
connected to their corresponding locations on the connector (FIG. 3). The connector
uses locking screws to insure a connection to the device, so make sure to insert and
tighten the screws before applying power.
Power Supply
GND To the Touch Panel
FIG. 3 NetLinx power connector wiring diagram
Insert the PWR and GND wires on the terminal end of the 2-pin 3.5 mm captive
wire connector cable. Match the wiring locations of the +/- on both the power
supply and the terminal connector.
Tighten the clamp to secure the two wires. Do not tighten the screws
excessively; doing so may strip the threads and damage the connector.
Verify the connection of the 2-pin 3.5 mm captive wire connector to the external
12 VDC-compliant power supply and apply power.
Configuring the MXD-1900L-PAN
The MXD-1900L-PAN 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 MXD-1900L-PAN to a network, please refer to the Modero X Series
Programming Guide, available at
Installing the MXD-1900L-PAN
The MXD-1900L-PAN 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 MXD-1900L-PAN Operation/
Reference Guide, available at
The MXD-1900L-PAN is contained within a clear outer housing known as the back box
(FIG. 4). This back box is removed when installing the device into a wall or when using
the optional Rough-In Box accessory (FG039-15).
Prepare the area by removing any screws or nails from the drywall before
beginning the cutout process.
Since the cutout for the back box is off-center from the edges of the touch panel, use
the MXD-1900L-PAN Installation Template (68-5968-02) to ensure proper placement.
Cut out the surface for the back box. Refer to the dimensions in the MXD-1900LPAN Operation/Reference Guide, available from, for more
CAUTION: Making sure that 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.
Thread the incoming power, Ethernet, and Micro-USB wiring (if Micro-USB
access is desired) from their terminal locations through the surface opening.
Leave enough slack in the wiring to accommodate any re-positioning of the
Push the back box into the wall opening. Insure that the locking tabs lie flush
against the back box.
Extend the locking tabs on the sides of the back box by tightening the screws
inside the box until snug. Not all of the tabs must be extended to lock the back
box in place, but extending a minimum of the top and bottom tabs is highly
recommended. 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 back box 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
For additional strength, #4 mounting screws (not included) may be secured
through circular holes located at the left and right sides of the MXD-1900L-PAN.
In order to prevent damage to the touch panel, make sure that these are flush
with the back box.
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.
10. Insert the four temporary mounting posts of the panel (FIG. 4) into the openings
on the back box and slide the panel onto the back box. This will temporarily hold
the panel during the rest of the installation.
WARNING: When installing the panel, do NOT press on or near the center of the panel. Too
much stress at the center may damage the touch screen surface. When installing the panel,
pressure should be applied toward the ends of the panel ONLY.
Use the six provided screws, three at each end, to secure the touch panel to the
back box (FIG. 5). Use only the provided screws, as other screws may damage
the touch panel.
Touch panel
Installing the MXD-1900L-PAN into a wall
The MXD-1900L-PAN comes with a clear plastic backbox (FIG. 4) designed to attach
the panel to most standard wall materials. This backbox has four locking tabs (two on
top and two on bottom) to help lock the backbox to the wall. These locking tabs are
only extended AFTER the backbox is inserted into the wall.
WARNING: 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.
Note: In order to guarantee a stable installation of the MXD-1900L-PAN, the thickness
of the wall material must be a minimum of .50 inches (1.27cm) and a maximum of .875
inches (2.22cm).
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.
