    TP-2000X-PC - Overview

    DSan TP-2000X-PC is a RS485-to-RS232 adapter that will allow the Cue Lights to be Triggered by Touch Panel Control Systems. Control cue lights with touch panel systems or other show control systems that accept serial data. Program button controls with simple plain-text commands. The touch panel can trigger any of the three commands (typically Forward, Back and Screen Blank) and can display lights associated with these commands as triggered by the remote transmitter.

    This is connected to the RJ-45 jack of a PerfectCue or PerfectCue-Mini. The DB-9 side is connected to the serial port of a touch panel controller. Port settings are the same as above. Three commands can be sent as plain text messages to PerfectCue. The commands consist of a start-of-message character, a command verb, a space, a check sum, and a carriage return.

    The commands trigger the illumination of the green, red and yellow lights respectively on the cue light, similar to the behavior of the PerfectCue wireless actuator. They also cause a PerfectCue that is connected to a computer, to deliver keystrokes that are configured, by default, as Right Arrow, Left Arrow, and B, respectively. On presentation systems such as PowerPoint® these keystrokes initiate next slide (or next build), previous slide and screen blank.

    In response to each command, PerfectCue - through the TP-2000X-PC - returns the "On" status of the cue lights: FRWLEDON, RVSLEDON and BLKLEDON. After approximately 1.4 seconds, TP-2000X-PC returns the "Off" value: FRWLEDOF, RVSLEDOF. The yellow light has a different behavior: its off status, BLKLEDOF, is not returned until another command is sent. These status messages can be used by the touch panel system to swap dark and light green, red, and yellow bitmaps.
