Power Input Connector

The product CS12800F101E/CS12800F101P uses a wide-range power input DC 12~36V. The total power consumption is normally about 7W. The Power Input Connector is a 3 Pin 3.81mm Screw Terminal Connector, as Figure 5 shows. A detailed description of the power input connector pins is provided in Table 1

Figure 5: 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 “GND” has been connected to power negative “-” on board.

Capacitive Touch

The product CS12800F101E/CS12800F101P uses ten-point capacitive touch.

ATTENTION:

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 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 CS10600U070E/CS10600U070P 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 of CS10600U070E/CS10600U070P 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.

CAN+RS485+RS232 Connector

The CAN+RS485+RS232 connector is a 16 Pin 3.81mm Screw Terminal Connector, as Figure 6 shows. As for the definition of every pin, please refer to Table 2. This product has 5 channels of UART in total that can be freely configured as RS232 or RS485. If you need any other setting different from the default one, please contact us.

ATTENTION:

  1. UART2 signal has been used by Bluetooth signal onboard. The RS485_2 function has been disabled by default. If you need the RS485_2 function, please contact us to disable the Bluetooth function.  
  2. A 120Ohm resistor doesn’t come mounted by default with the product.

USB HOST Connector

There are two USB connectors, as shown in Figure 7, that can provide 500mA current each.

Figure 7: USB HOST Connector

USB OTG Connector

And one USB OTG connector as Figure 8 shows. It works as a slave by default and can be used to connect the host PC. 

Figure 8: USB OTG Connector

Figure 10: TF Card Connector

ATTENTION:

The TF card doesn’t come with the product by default.

SIM Card Holder

The SIM card holder is shown in Figure 11. To read the SIM card data, you need a 4G/LTE module. There is a mini-PCIe connector inside the CS12800F101E/CS12800F101P that enables a 4G/LTE module to be mounted. To connect the external 4G Antenna, shown in Figure 12, use a connector on the backside of the case.
