AMX Limited Warranty and Disclaimer
This Limited Warranty and Disclaimer extends only to products purchased directly from AMX or an AMX Authorized Partner which
include AMX Dealers, Distributors, VIP’s or other AMX authorized entity.
AMX warrants its products to be free of defects in material and workmanship under normal use for three (3) years from the date of
purchase, with the following exceptions:
Electroluminescent and LCD Control Panels are warranted for three (3) years, except for the display and touch overlay compo-
nents are warranted for a period of one (1) year.
Disk drive mechanisms, pan/tilt heads, power supplies, and MX Series products are warranted for a period of one (1) year.
AMX lighting products are guaranteed to switch on and off any load that is properly connected to our lighting products, as long
as the AMX lighting products are under warranty. AMX also guarantees the control of dimmable loads that are properly con-
nected to our lighting products. The dimming performance or quality there of is not guaranteed, impart due to the random combi-
nations of dimmers, lamps and ballasts or transformers.
AMX software is warranted for a period of ninety (90) days.
Batteries and incandescent lamps are not covered under the warranty.
AMX AutoPatch Epica, Modula, Modula Series4, Modula CatPro Series and 8Y-3000 product models will be free of defects in
materials and manufacture at the time of sale and will remain in good working order for a period of three (3) years following the
date of the original sales invoice from AMX. The three-year warranty period will be extended to the life of the product (Limited
Lifetime Warranty) if the warranty card is filled out by the dealer and/or end user and returned to AMX so that AMX receives it
within thirty (30) days of the installation of equipment but no later than six (6) months from original AMX sales invoice date. The
life of the product extends until five (5) years after AMX ceases manufacturing the product model. The Limited Lifetime Warranty
applies to products in their original installation only. If a product is moved to a different installation, the Limited Lifetime Warranty
will no longer apply, and the product warranty will instead be the three (3) year Limited Warranty.
All products returned to AMX require a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number. The RMA number is obtained from the AMX
RMA Department. The RMA number must be clearly marked on the outside of each box. The RMA is valid for a 30-day period. After
the 30-day period the RMA will be cancelled. Any shipments received not consistent with the RMA, or after the RMA is cancelled, will
be refused. AMX is not responsible for products returned without a valid RMA number.
AMX is not liable for any damages caused by its products or for the failure of its products to perform. This includes any lost profits, lost
savings, incidental damages, or consequential damages. AMX is not liable for any claim made by a third party or by an AMX Autho-
rized Partner for a third party.
This Limited Warranty does not apply to (a) any AMX product that has been modified, altered or repaired by an unauthorized agent or
improperly transported, stored, installed, used, or maintained; (b) damage caused by acts of nature, including flood, erosion, or earth-
quake; (c) damage caused by a sustained low or high voltage situation or by a low or high voltage disturbance, including brownouts,
sags, spikes, or power outages; or (d) damage caused by war, vandalism, theft, depletion, or obsolescence.
This limitation of liability applies whether damages are sought, or a claim is made, under this warranty or as a tort claim (including
negligence and strict product liability), a contract claim, or any other claim. This limitation of liability cannot be waived or amended by
any person. This limitation of liability will be effective even if AMX or an authorized representative of AMX has been advised of the
possibility of any such damages. This limitation of liability, however, will not apply to claims for personal injury.
Some states do not allow a limitation of how long an implied warranty last. Some states do not allow the limitation or exclusion of inci-
dental or consequential damages for consumer products. In such states, the limitation or exclusion of the Limited Warranty may not
apply. This Limited Warranty gives the owner specific legal rights. The owner may also have other rights that vary from state to state.
The owner is advised to consult applicable state laws for full determination of rights.

Composite or S-Video), data (via Ethernet), and audio to Modero touch panels located up to 200 feet (60.96 m)
from the breakout box. NXD-700Vi panels are ideally suited for displaying full motion video and audio with
overlay graphics for applications with demanding visual requirements.
Key features common to both panels include:
-NXD-700Vi panels are based on the latest display technology and support AMX's 4th generation
(G4) graphics which provide higher brightness, richer colors, and deeper contrast. The new G4
graphics technology is supported by the latest AMX TPDesign4 Touch Panel Design program
(version 2.6 or higher).
-NXD-700Vi panels display eye-catching images and full-motion video on a large 16:9 image
format, while providing a wide 100-degree top-to-bottom viewing angle.
-NXD-700Vi panels feature a front panel light sensor, motion sensor, IR receiver and a Sleep/Setup

Wiring the NXA-AVB/ETHERNET Connectors And Cables
The inputs and outputs on the breakout box are separated into front and rear connectors. The rear connectors
are used to input external signals. The front connectors are used to communicate signals between the NXA-
AVB/ETHERNET and a target Modero panel. FIG. 8 provides a layout of the wiring connection both into and
from the breakout box.
The rear-panel wiring connections are described below (from left to right):
FIG. 8 NXA-AVB/ETHERNET Breakout Box connector wiring diagram
AUDIO IN: 6-pin mini-Phoenix connector, divided into left and right audio channels. Each
channel is divided into GND, IN+, and IN- terminal cable connectors
(2 sets of 3 for each channel).
An example of this cable is to strip the ends of 2 RCA audio cables and insert
them into their respective locations on the Audio In port.
Either a balanced (+, -, and GND) or unbalanced (+ and GND) audio
signal can be connected to this input.
MIC OUT: 4-pin mini-Phoenix connector, divided into GND, OUT-, and OUT+ terminal
connectors.
An example of this cable is to strip the terminal ends of a 3.5mm mini-jack and
insert them into their respective locations on the Mic Out port. This signal can
be fed as a Line Level In to either an amplifier or an AMX VOL card.
Either a balanced (+, -, and GND) or unbalanced (+ and GND) audio signal
can be connected to this output.
Video In BNCs: Feeds either Composite/S-Video Luma or S-Video Chroma signals into the
NXA-AVB/ETHERNET. This feed is then redirected out to a Modero panel
through the front Audio/Video CAT5 port.
•ETHERNET: RJ-45 connector routes data to the G4 touch panel through the front Ethernet
port. These connections use a standard CAT5 Ethernet cable to provide
communication between the target touch panel, breakout box, and NetLinx
Master.
•PWR: 2-pin mini-Phoenix connector that connects to a 12 VDC-compliant power
supply. This port can be used to provide power to a Modero panel by sending it
through the NXA-AVB/ETHERNET (rear power connector through to the front
power connector).

Wiring the NXA-AVB/ETHERNET for Unbalanced Audio
Most domestic audio equipment has unbalanced audio inputs and outputs. This means that the audio output
(left, right, or mono) appears on a single wire, and is referenced to "0 V" or "Ground". Typical connectors used
are RCA "phono" connectors, DIN plugs/sockets, and 0.25" (6.3mm) or 3.5mm jack plugs/sockets.
Unbalanced audio is adequate for most domestic environments and for line-level signals in a typical broadcast
studio. Problems may occur if the signals are carried over long distances, especially if the source and
destination have separate main supplies. Use the following wiring drawing (FIG. 9) to configure an
unbalanced audio connection.
When using unbalanced audio for the AUDIO IN connector (FIG. 9), the "-" and the "GND" terminals should
be connected together and then connected to the GND of the unbalance audio signal. When connecting to an
unbalanced audio input from the MIC OUT connector (FIG. 9), wire the "+" terminal to the signal input, and
the "GND" terminal to the signal ground.
Wiring the NXA-AVB/ETHERNET for Balanced Audio
Professional audio equipment will often use balanced audio inputs and outputs, usually on 3-pin "XLR"
connectors. A balanced audio signal consists of a pair of wires carrying the audio signal in anti-phase with
each other (if one wire carries a positive voltage, the other carries an equal and opposite negative voltage).
The advantage of balanced audio over unbalanced audio is its ability to reject external interference added as
the signal is carried over the wire. The receiving equipment takes the voltage difference between the two wires
as the input signal. Interference will usually get added to both wires equally, and so gets cancelled by the
receiving equipment.
The 3 wires used in a typical XLR lead are often referred to as Ground, Live (Hot) and Return (Cold). "Live"
and "Return" carry the "in-phase" and "out-of-phase" versions of the audio respectively. The pins of the XLR
plug/socket are as follows:
When connecting the MIC OUT connector to a balanced audio input (FIG. 10), use all three audio terminals
(+, -, and GND), then connect the "+" terminal to the "live" signal, the "-" terminal to the "return" signal, and
the "GND" terminal to the ground signal.

Overview
Upgrading the cards within the Wall Mount panel involves removing the rear plastic outer housing (back box),
removing the existing card, replacing it, and then placing the back box back onto the NXD panel, as described
in the following sections.
Step 1: Remove the existing NXD Outer Housing
1. Carefully detach all connectors from the side of the touch panel and remove the Faceplate from the front
of the panel.
2. Place the LCD facedown on a soft cloth to expose the under-side of the unit (FIG. 3). This step helps
prevent scratching of the LCD.
3. Firmly press down on both connector overlay release latches (located in front of the connectors). Pressing
down releases the connector overlay from atop the connectors.
4. Gently slide the connector overlay away from the back box housing.
5. Unscrew the outer housing (back box) by using a grounded Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two
sets of pan-head Housing Screws, located on both sides of the housing (FIG. 3).

6. Carefully lift-off the back box housing and angle it over to the side of the unit where the wires are
connected to the circuit board.
7. Gently lay the back box to one side of the unit. This exposes the internal circuit board (FIG. 4). Take care
not to place undue strain on the speaker cables.
Step 2: Install the new Compact Flash Memory card
1. Discharge any static electricity from your body by touching a grounded metal object and then locate the
existing 128 MB Compact Flash card on the main board (FIG. 5).
2. Insert the tip of a grounded flat-head screwdriver into one of the card removal grooves (located on either
side of the existing card), and gently pry the card out of the slot (FIG. 6). Repeat this process on the
opposite card removal groove. This alternating action causes the card to "wiggle" away from the on-board
connector pins.
3. Grip the old card by its sides and then carefully pull it out of the slot.
4. Remove the new CF memory card from it’s anti-static bag.
5. Grip the sides of the new CF memory card and firmly insert it into slot opening (with the arrow facing
towards the pins) until the contact pins are completely inside the flash card and it is then securely attached
to the pin sockets.

1. Gently place the outer housing back onto the panel and align the four pan-head Housing Screws holes
along the edges of the outer housing.
2. Insert and secure the four pan-head Housing Screws back into their pre-drilled holes by using a grounded
Phillips-head screwdriver.
3. Slip the connector overlay back into the connector opening by inserting the top of the overlay into the
connector opening in an upwards direction.
4. Align the connectors to their respective locations and secure the overlay by pushing it towards the
connectors until the overlay securely snaps back into the overlay release latches.
5. Re-install the faceplate back onto the panel. Refer to the Installing the Button Trim Ring section on
page 26 for more detailed faceplate installation information.

Overview
NXD-700Vi panels are installed into either a pre-wall surface (using a CB-TP7 conduit/wallbox) or a solid
surface (using either solid surface or drywall screws).
Installing the No-Button Trim Ring
The NXD-700Vi panel is shipped from AMX with the default Button Trim Ring already installed. The unit is
also shipped with an included Trim Ring containing no button openings (a No-Button Trim Ring) that allows
you, if desired, to change the default configuration of the NXD panel Faceplate to that with no-button
openings. In order to install this included No-Button Trim Ring, you must first remove the factory-installed
default Button Trim Ring, the six small buttons, and associated two clear light pipes.
1. The Faceplate is secured to the panel with plastic latches. To remove the Faceplate, simply pull it away
from the panel by gently tugging it outwards until the entire Faceplate comes away from the panel.
2. Turn the Faceplate over to expose the inside surface and view the Trim Ring latches (FIG. 7).
3. In a single motion, press down and then outwards on the three Trim Ring latches located along the top of
the internal surface of the Faceplate to begin removing the Button Trim Ring. Removing the Internal
Faceplate from the panel exposes the pushbuttons and light pipes along the inside of the Internal
Faceplate.
4. Gently tug along the edges of the Button Trim Ring and work your way around the edges to remove it
from the Faceplate (FIG. 7).
It is recommended that if you are planning on upgrading your flash memory, you do
so before beginning any panel installations.

28 NXD-700Vi 7" Modero® Wall/Flush Mount Touch Panel with Intercom
Pre-Wall Installation of the Conduit Box
Wall Mount panels (NXDs) are contained within an outer housing (back box). This back box is not removed
when installing the NXD into a Conduit Box (CB-TP7). The back box is only removed to gain access for the
replacement of the internal components.
The CB-TP7 is an optional metallic box that is secured onto a stud/beam in a pre-wall setting (where no walls
are present). Installation procedures and configurations can vary depending on the installation environment.
This section describes the installation procedures for the most common installation scenario. The most
important thing to remember when mounting this conduit box is that the NXD-700Vi Mounting Tabs must lie
flush against the outside of the sheetrock (FIG. 11).
-Refer to SP-2258-02 for detailed installation dimensions.
-It is recommended that you cut out the surface slightly smaller than what is outlined in the
installation drawings so that you can make any necessary cutout adjustments.
-The wiring knockouts on the left side will be used for the NXD-700Vi Wall Mount panel
connectors, so always secure the conduit box to the stud using the Stud Mounting Holes on the
right side of the box.
1. Rest the right Stud Mounting tabs onto the stud (keeping the knockouts on the left). Be sure to leave
enough of a gap between the stud and NXD Mounting tabs to accommodate the installation of the
drywall or sheetrock after the conduit box has been mounted. Ultimately, the Mounting Tabs
should lie flush against the outside of the sheetrock.
2. Fasten the CB-TP7 conduit box to the stud through the holes on the right Stud Mounting tabs (FIG. 11),
using either nails or screws.
3. Remove the wiring knockouts from the left side of the conduit box (CB-TP7) (FIG. 11) to accommodate
the cables being threaded through to the NXD touch panel.

Wiring Guidelines for the NXD-700Vi Panels
NXD-700Vi panels use a 12 VDC-compliant power supply to provide power to the panel via the 2-pin
3.5 mm mini-Phoenix 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.
Preparing Captive Wires
You will need a wire stripper and flat-blade screwdriver to prepare and connect the captive wires.
1. Strip 0.25 inch (6.35 mm) of insulation off all wires.
2. Insert each wire into the appropriate opening on the connector (according to the wiring diagrams and
connector types described in this section).
3. Tighten the screws to secure the wire in the connector. Do not tighten the screws excessively; doing so
may strip the threads and damage the connector.
Don’t disconnect the connectors from the touch panel. The unit must be installed with
the necessary connectors before being inserted into the equipment rack.
These units should only have one source of incoming power. Using more than one
source of power to the touch panel can result in damage to the internal components
and a possible burn out.
Apply power to the panels only after installation is complete.
Never pre-tin wires for compression-type connections.

Using the Site Survey tool
This tool allows a user to "sniff-out" all transmitting Wireless Access Points within the detection range of the
internal NXA-WC80211GCF. Once pressed, the panel displays the Site Survey page which contains categories
such as:
-Network Name (SSID) - Wireless Access Point names
-Channel (RF) - Channel currently being used by the WAP (Wireless Access Point)
-Security Type (if detectable - such as WEP, OPEN and UNKNOWN) - security protocol enabled
on the WAP
-Signal Strength - None, Poor, Fair, Good, Very Good, and Excellent
-MAC Address - Unique identification of the transmitting Access Point
In the Protected Setup page:
1. Press the Wireless Settings button (located on the lower-left) to open the Wireless Settings page.
2. Navigate to the Access Point MAC Address section of this page and press the on-screen
Site Survey button. This action launches the Site Survey page which displays a listing of all detected
WAPs in the communication range of the internal card.
-The card scans its environment every four seconds and adds any new WAPs found to the list. Every
scan cycle updates the signal strength field.
-Access points are tracked by MAC Address.
-If the WAP’s SSID is set as a blank, then N/A is displayed within the SSID field.
-If the WAP’s SSID is hidden (not broadcast) it will not show up on the site survey screen but
it can still be configured via the SSID field on the specified security mode screen.
Check with your System Administrator for a pre-reserved Static IP Address assigned
to the panel. This address must be obtained before Static assignment of the panel
continues.

-If a WAP is displayed in the list is not detected for 10 scans in a row it is then removed from
the screen. In this way, a user can walk around a building and see access points come and go
as they move in and out of range.
3. Sort the information provided on this page by pressing on a column name and toggling the direction of
the adjacent arrow.
-Up arrow - indicates that the information is being sorted in a Ascending order.
-SSID (A to Z), Channel (1 to 14), Security (Unknown to WEP), Signal (None to Excellent).
The firmware considers the following to be the security order from least secure to most
secure: Open, WEP, WPA, WPA2, and Unknown.
-Down arrow - indicates that the information is being sorted in a Descending order.
-SSID (Z to A), Channel (11 to 6), Security (WEP to Unknown), Signal (Excellent to None)
4. Select a desired Access Point by touching the corresponding row. The up arrow and down arrow will be
grayed out if there are ten or less access points detected. If there are more, then they will be enabled as
appropriate so that the user can scroll through the list.
5. With the desired WAP selected and highlighted, click the Connect button to be directed to the selected
security mode’s Settings page with the SSID field filled in. You can then either Cancel the operation or
fill in any necessary information fields and then click Save.
If you select an Open, WEP, and WPA-PSK Access Point and then click Connect, you will be flipped to the
corresponding Settings page. For any other security mode, if you click Connect you will only return to the
previous page without any information being pre-filled out for you.
-In an Open security mode, when a target WAP is selected and the connect to, the SSID name of the
selected WAP is saved for the open security mode.
-In a Static WEP security mode, when a WEP Access Point is selected and then connected to, the
user is then redirected back to the Static WEP security screen where the SSID field is already filled
out and the user is only required to enter in the remaining WEP key settings.
-A similar process occurs for WPA-PSK access points. For any other case, the firmware switches
back to the previous page and security and connection parameters must be entered in as normal.

Configuring the Modero’s wireless card for secured access to a WAP200G
After logging into the WAP200G, the default Status page appears within the web browser. These
read-only values are "pulled" from some of the other user-configurable Configuration Utility pages. By
default, wireless Modero panels are configured for unsecured communication to a Wireless Access Point. To
properly setup both the WAP200G and panel for secure communication, you must first prepare the Modero
panel and then use the information given to fill out the fields within the WAP’s
browser-based Basic Wireless Configuration page.
Since the code key generator on Modero panels use the same key generation formula, all panels will generate
identical keys for the same Passphrase. The generators used on WAPs will not produce the same key as the
Modero generator even if you use the same Passphrase. For this reason, we recommend FIRST creating the
Current Key on the Modero and then entering that information into the appropriate NXA-WAP200G
fields.
Automatically set SSID
In the Protected Setup page:
1. Select Wireless Settings.
2. Press the Site Survey button.
3. Select a WEP secured WAP from within the Site Survey page, and press the Connect button.
4. Write down the SSID name, Current Key string value, and panel MAC Address information so you can
later enter it into the appropriate WAP dialog fields in order to "sync-up" the secure connection. These
values must be identically reproduced on the target WAP.

-As an example, if you use TECHPUBS as your SSID, you must match this word and the case
within both the Network Name (SSID) field on the touch panel’s Network Name SSID field and on
the WAP’s Basic Wireless Configuration page.
5. Toggle the Encryption field (FIG. 33) until it reads either: 64 Bit Key Size or 128 Bit Key Size.
The 64/128 selection reflects the bit-level of encryption security. This WEP encryption level must match
the encryption level being used on the WAP.
6. Toggle the Default Key field until the you’ve chosen a WEP Key value (from 1- 4) that matches what
you’ll be using on your target WAP200G. This value MUST MATCH on both devices.
- These WEP Key identifier values must match for both devices.
7. With the proper WEP Key value displayed, press the Generate button to launch the WEP Passphrase
keyboard.
If you are wanting to have your target WAP (other than an NXA-WAP200G) generate the Current Key
- Do not press the Generate button and continue with Step 13.
-This keyboard allows you to enter a Passphrase (such as AMXPanel) and then AUTOMATICALLY
generate a WEP key which is compatible only among all Modero panels.
8. Within this on-screen WEP Passphrase keyboard (FIG. 34), enter a character string or word (such as
AMXPanel) and press Done when you have finished.
WEP will not work unless the same Default Key is set on both the panel and the
Wireless Access Point.
For example: if you have your Wireless Access Point set to default key 4 (which
was 01:02:03:04:05), you must set the panel’s key 4 to 01:02:03:04:05.
The code key generator on Modero panels use the same key generation formula.
Therefore, this same Passphrase generates identical keys when done on any
Modero because they all use the same Modero-specific generator. The Passphrase
generator is case sensitive.

wireless connection to the network.
USB
NetLinx Studio can be setup to run a Virtual Master where the PC acts as the Master by supplying its own IP
Address for communication to the panel. For a PC to establish a USB connection with a Modero panel, it must
have the AMX USBLAN driver installed.
It is recommended that firmware KIT files only be transferred over a direct connection
and only when the panel is connected to a power supply. If battery power or wireless
connection fails during a firmware upgrade, the panel flash file system may become
corrupted.

NXD-700Vi 7" Modero® Wall/Flush Mount Touch Panel with Intercom
Upgrading Modero Firmware
Overview
Before beginning the Upgrade process:
-Setup and configure your NetLinx Master. Refer to the your particular NetLinx Master Instruction
Manual for detailed setup procedures.
-Calibrate and prepare the communication pages on the Modero panel for use. Refer to the Panel
Calibration section on page 39.
-Refer to the NetLinx Studio version 2.x Help file for more information on uploading files via
Ethernet.
-Configure your panel for either direct connect or wireless communication. Refer to the Configuring
Communication section on page 41 for more information.
The process of updating firmware involves the use of a communicating NetLinx Master. The required steps for
updating firmware to a Modero panel are virtually identical to those necessary for updating Kit files to a
NetLinx Master (except the target device is a panel instead of a Master). Refer to either your Master’s
literature or Studio 2.x Help file for those procedures.
Upgrading the Modero Firmware via the USB port
Before beginning with this section, verify your panel is both powered and the Type-A USB connector is
securely inserted into the PC’s USB port. The panel must be powered-on before connecting the
mini-USB connector to the panel.
Step 1: Configure the panel for a USB Connection Type
1. After the installation of the USB driver has been completed; confirm the proper installation of the large
Type-A USB connector to the PC's USB port, and restart your machine.
2. After the panel powers-up, press and hold the grey Front Setup Access button (for 3 seconds) to continue
with the setup process and proceed to the Setup page.
3. Select Protected Setup > System Settings (located on the lower-left) to open the System Settings page.
4. Toggle the blue Type field (from the Master Connection section) until the choice cycles to USB.
The latest NXD-700Vi firmware kit file is now panel-specific.
Only NXD-700Vi firmware should be loaded onto this specific panel type.
This new firmware also provides both backwards compatibility with the previous
802.11b cards and new security protocols for the new 802.11g wireless CF card.
It is recommended that firmware Kit files only be transferred over a direct Ethernet
connection and only when the panel is connected to a power supply.
If battery power or wireless connection fails during a firmware upgrade, the panel
flash file system may become corrupted.
A touch panel which is not using a valid username and password will not be able to
communicate with a secured Master. If you are updating the firmware on or through a
panel which is not using a username or password field, you must first remove the
Master Security feature to establish an unsecured connection.
Establishing a USB connection between the PC and the panel, prior to installing the
USB Driver will cause a failure in the USB driver installation.

Program Port on the panel. It may take a minute for the panel to detect the new connection and send a
signal to the PC (indicated by a green System Connection icon).
-If a few minutes have gone by and the System Connection icon still does not turn green, complete
the procedures in the following section to setup the Virtual Master and refresh the System from the
Online Tree. This action sends out a request to the panel to respond and completes the
communication (turning the System Connection icon green).
8. Navigate back to the System Settings page.
Step 2: Prepare NetLinx Studio for communication via the USB port
1. Launch NetLinx Studio 2.x (default location is Start > Programs > AMX Control Disc > NetLinx
Studio 2 > NetLinx Studio 2).
2. Select Settings > Master Communication Settings, from the Main menu to open the Master
Communication Settings dialog (FIG. 47).
3. Click the Communications Settings button to open the Communications Settings dialog.
4. Click on the NetLinx Master radio button (from the Platform Selection section) to indicate that you are
working as a NetLinx Master.
5. Click on the Virtual Master radio box (from the Transport Connection Option section) to indicate you
are wanting to configure the PC to communicate directly with a panel. Everything else such as the
Authentication is greyed-out because you are not going through the Master’s UI.
ALL fields are then greyed-out and read-only, but still display any previous network
information.

both the system number used in step 7 for the Virtual NetLinx Master (VNM) is entered into the Master
Connection section of the System Settings page and the panel is restarted.
Step 3: Confirm and Upgrade the firmware via the USB port
Use the CC-USB Type-A to Mini-B 5-wire programming cable (FG10-5965) to provide communication
between the mini-USB Program port on the touch panel and the PC. This method of communication is used to
transfer firmware Kit files and TPD4 touch panel files.
1. Verify this direct USB connection (Type-A on the panel to mini-USB on the panel) is configured properly
using the steps outlined in the previous two sections.
2. With the panel already configured for USB communication and the Virtual Master setup within NetLinx
Studio, its now time to verify the panel is ready to receive files.
3. After the Communication Verification dialog window verifies active communication between the Virtual
Master and the panel, click the OnLine Tree tab in the Workspace window (FIG. 48) to view the devices
on the Virtual System. The default System value is one.
4. Right-click on the System entry (FIG. 48) and select Refresh System to re-populate the list.
Verify the panel appears in the OnLine Tree tab of the Workspace window.

different types of networks/applications or acts as a go-between two or more
networks that use the same protocols.
Host Name Sets the host name of the panel.
Primary DNS Sets the address of the primary DNS server used for host name lookups.
DNS (Domain Name System) is software that lets users locate computers on
a local network or the Internet (TCP/IP network) by host and domain. The
DNS server maintains a database of host names for its’ domain and their
corresponding IP Addresses.
Secondary DNS Sets a secondary DNS value to the panel.
Domain Sets the unique name on the Internet to the panel for DNS look-up.
The panel belongs to the DNS domain.

username/password (if used) on the Master.
- The System Number field is read-only because the panel obtains this
information from the communicating Master.
Listen - In this mode, add the Modero panel address into the URL List in
NetLinx Studio and set the connection mode to Listen. This mode allows the
Modero touch panel to "listen" for the Master’s communication signals.
- The System Number and Master IP/URL fields are red-only.
Auto - In this mode, enter the System Number and a username/password
(if applicable). This mode is used when both the panel and the NetLinx
Master are on the same Subnet and the Master has its UDP feature enabled.
