Resolution

  • If you have an ARCnet version Touchscreen, (TS or TSP) by removing the ARCnet daughter board the Touchscreen would become an NCP type.
  • If you have a LON version Touchscreen, (TS or TSP) by removing the LON board would not revert the Touchscreen an NCP type. The LON Touchscreen firmware is different to that of the NCP.ARCnet version.
  • If this modification is carried out, it is advised the controller is clearly mark to save confusion by others.
