For more detailed installation, configuration, programming, file transfer, and
operating instructions refer to the MVP-7500 and MVP-8400 Modero
ViewPoint Touch Panels Instruction Manual, available on-line at
Verify the NetLinx Master Firmware is build 117 or greater for the ME260 and
NI-Series Controllers. Verify the TPDesign4 program being used is Version 2.2
or higher. Earlier versions of the Master firmware and TPD4 software are
incompatible with these panels.
The AMX MVP-7500 panel (FG5965-01) uses an internal wireless compact flash
card to communicate with a NetLinx Master via an off-the-shelf 802.11b Wireless
Access Point. MVP units utilize a 7.5" Color Passive LCD to display a 640 x 480
pixel image using over 4000 colors and features programmable firmware that
can be upgraded via either the wireless card or the mini-USB port. The
MVP-7500 panel also features nine programmable external pushbuttons and two
sets of display LEDs. These panels are configured to operate on a standard
802.11b wireless network. On the 4 available IR channels, this panel utilizes both
AMX IR frequencies (38 KHz or 455 KHz) and 2 additional user-defined IR
Connections and Wiring
The PS4.4 Power Supply (with barrel connector) provides power to the
MVP-7500 panel either directly (via the power connector located on the lower
right-side of the panel) or indirectly (by routing incoming power through the
Docking Station’s MVP Interface Connector).
Once the MVP is connected to a docking station; charging priority is
first given to any MVP-BP battery packs found within the MVP-7500
and then to any other batteries inserted into the docking station’s
battery charging compartments.
USB Connection
This panel uses a standard version 1.1 Type A to Mini-B 5-Wire USB cable to
provide communication between the touch panel and the PC. This
communication is used to transfer IR data, firmware KIT files, and TPD4 touch
panel files.
WARNING: Although firmware upgrades can be done over wireless Ethernet; it
is strongly recommended that firmware KIT files be transferred over a direct USB
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.
