Power Input Connector

The product CS10600T070E/CS10600T070P uses a wide range of power Input: DC 6~42V. And the total power consumption is normally around 6W. The Power Input Connector is 3 pin 3.81mm Screw Terminal connector as Figure 5 Power Input Connector and Figure 4 Back View. It is labelled as P6 on the PCB, P2 on the backside of the metal case. The character “+” means power Positive input, The character “” means power Negative input. The character “G” means system Ground. Table 2 has detailed descriptions about the connector definition.

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

Please note:

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

Capacitive Touch

Product CS10600T070E/CS10600T070P uses capacitive touch, As Figure 6 shows.

Figure 6 Capacitive Touch Connector


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

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

2)  If the user’s power adapter isn’t good enough, there’s another effective method to solve this problem: Make sure the CS10600T070E-C211 Power Input Connector P6 Pin 3 really connect to user “Power System Ground”. This method can eliminate the problem totally. The user can also use another method to test this problem: Touch the GND of CS10600T070E-C211 by one hand, the other hand operates on the Capacitive Touch Screen. In this case, the user’s body acts as the Power System Ground.

CAN+RS485+RS232 Connector

The RS232 / RS485 / CAN connector is a 12 Pin 3.81mm Screw Terminal connector. 

It is defined as P16 on the PCB, P1 on the backside of the metal case, as shown in Figure 4 Back View and Figure 7 RS232 / RS485 / CAN Connector.

Figure 7 RS232 / RS485 / CAN Connector

 As for the definition of every Pin, please refer to Table 3. This product can be customized to inherit two CAN channels. If two CAN channels are needed, please contact us.

  • 1 x RS485, 2 x CAN

USB Connector

The product CS10600T070E/CS10600T070P has two USB connectors,as Figure 8 shows. These two USB connectors can be customized to HOST or SLAVE. All these two connectors have been defined as HOST by default.

(a) CS10600T070E

(b) CS10600T070P

Figure 8 USB connector

Please note:

The OTG Connector P14 (USB0) is defined as HOST by default. If it’s needed to be defined as SLAVE (OTG), please Remove two 0603 package 0 Ohm resistors R119 and R121 as Figure 8 shows.

LAN Connector

The product CS10600T070E/CS10600T070P features one channel 100Mbit Ethernet. The connector can be found on the PCB labelled as P13 as Figure 9 LAN Connector shows.

Figure 11 TF Card (uSD) Connector

Please note: The uSD card Slot is NOT Mounted with any uSD card by default.

Boot Switch

The device features a boot switch which can be used to change the boot sequence. It is defined as SW2 on the PCB as shown in Figure 4 Back View and Figure 11 Boot Switch. The position can either be eMMC or SD. The device will boot from the location that’s selected.

Figure 13 WiFi+BT module

Please note: 

  1. The WiFi/BT module is NOT Mounted by default. If the user needs WiFi/BT, please contact us.
  2. This WiFi/BT module uses USB1 channel to communicate with CPU, so it will occupy the USB1 channel when mounted on.

Expansion Connector

There is an Expansion Connector labelled as P18 on the PCB as figure 14 shown, it is connected to CPU GPIO/ADC/SPI/I2C signals。The connector is not mounted by default.

Figure 14 Expansion Connector

As for the definition of every pin, please refer to Table 4。

ATTENTION: All these signals connect to the CPU directly. Please use it carefully or the CPU will be damaged easily.
