Power Input Connector

The product CS19108R173P-C111 uses a wide-range power input DC 15~36V. The total power consumption is normally about 15W. The Power Input Connector is 3 Pin 3.81mm Screw Terminal Connector as Figure 3 shows. A detailed description of the power input connector pins is provided in Table 1

Figure 3: Power Input Connector

Table 1

Power Input Pin Definition:
Pin Number Definition Description
Pin 1 Positive Input Connect to DC Power Positive Terminal
Pin 2 Negative Input Connect to DC Power Negative Terminal
Pin 3 Ground Connect to Power System Ground

ATTENTION:

The system ground “G” has been connected to power negative “-” on board.

Capacitive Touch

The product CS19108R173P-C111 uses ten-point capacitive touch.

ATTENTION:

Capacitive touch screens are very sensitive to power noise. Ripple voltage/current from the power adapter can cause the LCD ripples, as well as the capacitive touch malfunction. If you use the APK Multi-Touch under Android to test it, you can find the touchpoint float. There are several ways to solve this problem:

1)  Use a high-quality power adapter. Or a battery to provide power like a cell phone or tablet PC. 

2)  If the power adapter isn’t good enough, make sure the power input connector Pin 3 is connected to the Ground. This method can eliminate the problem totally. You can test it by touching the GND with one hand, while the other hand operates on the capacitive touch screen. In this case, the user’s body acts as the Power System Ground.

DB9 Connector

The product CS19108R173P-C111 has 6*DB9 connectors configured as RS232 by default. COM3/COM4/COM5/COM6 can be customized to RS485. If you need any other setting different from the default one, please contact us.
