Continue to B. Controller & Driver Installation.

3.2. KTMT for monitors (KTMT-1315, 1700, 1900 and 1921):

3.2.1.
For Mounting on LCD monitor: There are two sets of hangers included; one pair of hard plastic hangers and one pair of Velcro hangers.

3.2.1.1.
You may use the plastic hangers. Place the touch screen panel on a flat table with the backside facing up. Screw two hangers into the back of the panel using the top screw holes on the hanger (picture 1).

3.2.1.2. Adhere two Velcro strips provided on the top of the display as indicated by the arrows in picture 2. Mount the touch screen to the display (picture 3).

3.2.1.3.
If you find the top of the touch screen is blocking the view area of the display; you may raise the touch screen by adding the rectangular foam pad underneath the hangers (picture 4).

3.2.1.4. Alternatively, you may use the Velcro hangers (picture 5). The soft surface of the Velcro faces up when fastening them with the screws to the frame. Mount the touch screen to the display and press the Velcro firmly (picture 6).

3.2.1.5.
Must apply the Velcro at the bottom of the screen (picture 7) to secure the mounting. Use the cable clips to secure the touch screen cable (picture 8).

Continue to section B. Controller & Driver Installation.



3.2.2.  Mounting procedures for CRT Monitor and Wide Format LCD Monitors:

3.2.2.1. Measure the top frame of the monitor (picture 1). If it is 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) or less, use the top holes on the plastic hangers to screw into the touch screen panel. Otherwise, use the bottom holes.

1.1.  Screw through the top 2 holes of the hangers to the frame. This mounting should be suitable for most monitors.

1.2. If the top frame of your monitor is very wide, you can drop your touch screen by screwing through the bottom 2 holes of the hangers to the frame

1.3. If the top frame of your monitor is narrow, you can turn the hanger over and screw through the top holes of the hanger to the frame.

1.4. If the top frame of your monitor is extremely narrow, turn the hanger over and screw through the bottom holes of the hanger to the frame.

Magic Touch Monitor (KTSC & KTLC series) connection:

4.1.
Connect the monitor to computer as instructed in the monitor’s manual, which typically involves the power cord and video cable connection. Ignore any contents pertaining to touch screens in the monitor’s manual.

4.2.
Connect the touch screen cable from the back of the monitor to the controller.
Note
: If the cable is not long enough, cal us for extension cable. Regular telephone  cable cannot be used for extension.

Continue to section B. Controller & Driver Installation.



5.
Magic Touch Built-In Kit (KTT series) integration:

Built-in kits must be integrated by experienced technicians.
The integrator will be solely responsible for any damage to the monitor and touch screen kit. Physical damage to the touch screen is not covered by the  warranty. For all standard LAM and CAF1 models, the flex tail should be on the left and its alignment mark (“white dot”) should match the one on the extension cable.

The display needs to have minimum of 3 mm or 1/8” space inside for touch screen integration.

It is impossible to provide a general guideline for integration because different monitor models may have different housing design and wiring connections. The following procedures should be used for reference  purpose only:


5.1. Important:
Test both touch screen panel and monitor before the installation.

5.2. Open and remove the housing of the monitor (check with monitor supplier about the warranty policy regarding to this step).

5.3.
Clean the monitor surface and the back of the touch screen panel (remove the protective film of touch screen).

5.4. It is very important to center the touch screen panel to the opening of the monitor’s front frame, so that the edges of the frame will not contact the active area of the touch screen to prevent shorts caused by constant touching (pre load). The edges of the frame should rest on the clear insulation border of the touch screen. Depending on the structure of the frame, foam strips and washers may be needed to add space for preventing shorts.

5.5.
For service purpose, the touch screen should be removable from the monitor. Therefore, it is not recommended to use double side tape or permanent adhesive to mount the touch screen on top of the display. Use high temperature ducking tape to mount the edges of the touch screen to the metal frame of the display. Add support at the bottom of the touch screen to prevent it from sliding down.

5.6. If the monitor does not have enough space to accommodate the thickness of the touch screen, do not force the housing to close because it may damage both the touch screen and monitor. Do not force the mounting screws beyond finger tightness. Note: Slim LCD and notebook computers usually are not suitable for touch screen integration.

5.7.
Pull the touch screen cable out from the back of the monitor. Replace the connector if necessary – make sure the
wiring is correct.

Note: If the cable is not long enough, contact us  for a custom extension cable. Regular telephone cable cannot be used.

8. Settings and Options of Magic Touch Control Panel (Windows version):

8.1. Mouse speed: Control the tracking speed of mouse cursor.
8.2.
Double click speed: Control the time interval between two clicks to activate a double click. Slow speed makes double click easier. Test the double click by tapping the K logo twice. If successful, the logo rotates.
8.3. Lift Off: When this option is enabled, the click is activated when touch is lifted away from the touch screen. This mode is very useful for clicking hyperlinks, such as Internet browser, or programs that use “mouse-over” function. However, it is impossible to drag or draw in this mode. (available in Mac version)
8.4. Beep: Enable/disable an audible beep when a touch is sensed. Customize the beep’s pitch and duration under ‘Beep Options.’

9.3. Tap twice = left mouse button double clicked
9.4. Swap Button: Select ‘once’ to right-click on next touch only, or ‘always’ to right-click on every touch. Select minimize to reduce to system tray as a shortcut.

10. Helpful Notes:

10.1. Place the monitor at an easy-to-touch position and avoid direct strong lighting to reduce glare on the screen.
10.2. It is easier to use the stylus for clicking smaller icons; dragging and drawing (apply constant pressure when drawing).
10.3. Make one-point touch only. Do not lean your hand on the screen or touch it with more than one finger or stylus.
10.4. Increase the size of icon and menu bar for easy touch.
10.5. If double-click is difficult, change to single click in ‘Tools\Folder Options’.

11. How to take care of your Magic Touch product:

11.1. DO NOT touch the screen with hard, sharp objects.
11.2. DO NOT hit or drop the screen.
11.3. DO NOT spray any liquid directly to the screen. Clean the screen with soft cloth or paper towel dampened with cleaning solution, such as Windex, alcohol.
