Installation Requirements for Separate Installation

  • Check that the installation wall or cabinet surface is flat, in good condition and has no jagged edges. Metal reinforcing strips may be attached to the inside of the wall, near the panel-cut, to increase its rigidity.

  • Decide on the thickness of the enclosure wall, based on the level of strength required. Even if the installation wall thickness is within the recommended range for the Panel Cut Dimensions, depending on wall’s material, size, and installation location of this product and other devices, the installation wall could warp. To prevent warping, the installation surface may need to be strengthened.

  • Check that the ambient air temperature and the ambient humidity are within their specified ranges in Environmental Specifications. When installing this product in a cabinet or enclosure, the ambient air temperature is the cabinet’s or enclosure’s internal and external temperature.

    1. Internal temperature

    2. External temperature

  • Be sure that heat from surrounding equipment does not cause this product to exceed its standard operating temperature.

  • For easier maintenance, operation and improved ventilation, install this product at least 100 mm (3.94 in) away from adjacent structures and other equipment as shown in the following illustration:

  • The panel must be designed to avoid any induced vibration resonance on the rear module exceeding an amplitude factor of 10 and to avoid any induced permanent vibration resonance. To reduce the resonance use the spacer (sold separately).

When transporting the cabinet or enclosure with the product installed, remove its rear module.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in equipment damage.

Pressure Differences

When applying and installing this product, it is important that steps are taken to eliminate any pressure difference between the inside and the outside of the enclosure in which this product is mounted. Higher pressure inside the enclosure can cause delamination of the front membrane of the display. Even a small pressure difference inside the enclosure will act on the large area of the membrane and can result in sufficient force to delaminate the membrane and thus cause failure of the touch capability. Pressure differences can often occur in applications where there are multiple fans and ventilators moving air at different rates in different rooms. Please follow these techniques to ensure that this product's function is not impacted by this mis-application:
  1. Seal all conduit connections inside of the enclosure, especially those that lead to other rooms that may be at a different pressure.

  2. Where applicable, install a small weep hole at the bottom of the enclosure to allow equalization of the internal and external pressure.
