12″ MultiTouch™ Panel
The CP450 Series of touch screen controllers are ideal for a wide variety of applications that include the following: multimedia control systems, general computing, advertising, real-time data terminals, interactive self-service centers, digital surveillance, etc. Each controller is a computer running Windows XP Embedded that includes these key features:
•Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN)
•Bluetooth Personal Area Network (PAN)
•2 COM ports and 2 LAN ports
•Integrated Dual Speakers
•Enhanced Write Filter (EWF) Protection
•AVSnap™ Professional AV System Integration Tool
The CP450 senses “touch” from a finger, stylus, pen, pencil, gloved finger, or other tool. The touch screen is very accurate and responsive to the touch. The CP450 incorporates effortlessly into PC based control systems.
The two COM ports can control virtually any serial device using standard RS-232 communication. The two LAN ports allow connectivity to a local area network or a direct connection to another TCP/IP device. For added flexibility, consider the ALTINEX AC301-201 TCP/IP to RS-232 Adapter. This adapter allows RS-232 communication through a standard LAN connection.
The AC301-201 has both serial (DB9) and network (RJ-45) connections. The AC301-201 connects to a serial device using its DB9 connection, and to the LAN using standard network cable. AVSnap, HyperTerminal, or other RS-232 communication software can then be used to control the serial device using the IP address of the adapter in place of the COM port. In this way, a single controller can be used to control any number of serial devices using their unique IP address.
The built-in wireless LAN can be used to control remote devices through a wireless router or directly to a remote IP. As an information interface in a classroom, public information kiosk, etc., the wireless connection can also be used to upload real-time data to the CP450 ensuring the most up-to-date information is available to the user.
The Bluetooth module inside each CP450-012 is compatible with most peripheral devices like headsets, barcode readers, printers, cell phones, and more.
The Altinex CP450-012 can be mounted to a stand for table use; it can be wall or rack mounted. The 7, 8, and 10-inch models have standard 75mm x 75mm VESA mounting on the back of the unit. The 15, 17, and 19-inch models have standard 100mm x 100mm spacing, while the 12-inch has both 75 and 100mm spacing.
AVSnap provides a complete environment for designing simple to sophisticated graphical user interfaces (GUIs). AVSnap is preinstalled on each CP450 making it easy to integrate into any control environment. Design high-quality GUIs with minimum effort by way of user-friendly toolbars for buttons, volume controls, progress bars, and much more. AVSnap incorporates a simple programming language with an organized interface that makes even complex programming code easy to read and maintain.
Everything needed to start is included in a sample application. Use the predefined procedures and functions to communicate with devices over RS-232 or LAN, or create your own custom subroutines. If you can program Crestron or AMX, you can program AVSnap.
The EWF prevents changes to the internal drive without specific intent and access. This protects the BIOS and operating system files from becoming corrupt due to power outages or other power interruptions.
