Board edge switches

Board edge switchesUsing board edge switches on the module itself is one control option offered by Crystal Vision, and is available for some products in the Indigo range.

Board edge control is not available for the Vision frame system.

This method of control requires the Indigo frame front panel to be in the open position.

So how does board edge operation work?

 

Using board edge control

The latest Indigo boards offer an intuitive board edge interface at the front of the module, with two push button switches (Up and ENTER) which allow the operator to navigate within the menu structure and a rotary encoder (SCROLL/ADJUST) which is used to navigate through the menu categories and adjust parameter values.

Some older boards have piano switches which allow control options to be selected, with up and down positions for each lever.

On some boards, jumper links can be moved to configure the board – such as to select input termination (75 ohm or 110 ohm), select output configurations or select the input and output format.

Board edge LEDs are available on all Indigo boards and are used to identify the state of the power supplies, input format, GPIs and other features particular to that board. These LEDs may be used in conjunction with status information from any connected remote panel display or from the Statesman Lite PC control software or VisionWeb web browser control.

To use board edge operation on the module, you will need to set its local/remote switch to local.

Board edge control was removed from some of our products during 2019. This is because boards that previously featured a ten character alphanumeric display are no longer being fitted with the display and are therefore no longer controllable from the board edge.

The display will continue to be fitted to the MultiLogo logo keyers and Clip N Key clipstores because a board edge menu showing the board’s IP address allows the user to configure their control software correctly.
