The VIP-882-V-TS "TouchMux"™ Video Splitter allows 2 monitors with touch screen capabilities to be connected to one PC for simultaneous viewing of the same image at all times with one touch screen monitor being active at a time, while the -KS model allows a fixed (for security purpose with key removal) selection of one active Touch Screen input to the PC only.


1. Connect PC to Video Splitter unit:

Connect the PC's video output to the Video Splitter using the HDD15 male/female extension cable supplied with the Video Splitter. This connection is made from the PC's video output to the Video Splitter's backpanel connector marked "TO PC VIDEO". Connect the PC's Touch Screen inputs to the Video Splitter using a DB9 male/female extension cable supplied with the Video Splitter. Make this connection from the PC's touch screen input to the Video Splitter's backpanel connector marked "TO PC TS".

2. Connect Monitors to the Video Splitter:

Connect the first VGA monitor to the Video Splitter's backpanel HDD15 connector marked "STA-1-MON". Connect the Touch Screen portion of the VGA monitor to the Video Splitter's backpanel DB9 connector marked "STA-1 TS.

Repeat the above step for the second monitor.

3. Connect the Power Supply to the Video Splitter:

The Video Splitter is powered by an external wall plug-in supply the VIP-210 (+5 Vdc 2A reg. 110 - 240 Vac 50 - 60 Hz). First plug the power output plug of this external supply into the mating jack on the backpanel of the Video Splitter marked "+5VDC", and only then plug the supply into a suitable AC power source. Since the Video Splitter has no separate power on/off switch, it is recommended that the power supply be connected to an AC power source that has a power on/off switch.

When the Video Splitter is powered up, observe on the Video Splitter that the front panel Led marked "PWR ON" comes on.

2. Touch Screen Selection

Switching from one active (powered on) Touch Screen monitor to another may be accomplished via touching the Touch Screen of the monitor that an operator would like to use.

3.Key Switch Selection (-KS Models only)

The key switch option of the Video Switch allows lockout tagout of a Touch Screen Monitor with key removal. The operator selects video monitor (1 or 2) to be active to the PC. The other monitor is locked out from communication to the PC via the touch screen. Both monitors will continue to display the same image, but only one will be active.
