If you are planning to use multiple touch screens, then you need to apply a touch screen module for each monitor in order to get each of the touch screens to work properly.

Add a Touch Screen Module for Each Monitor

Open the Terminal Configuration Wizard for the terminal by double-clicking on it in the ThinManager tree. Navigate to the Module Selection Page by selecting the Next button.

Add a touch screen module for each monitor by selecting the Add button. We support over a dozen touch controllers so select the right one for each monitor. If you are using two different brands with two different touch screen controllers, select the right one for each monitor

Configure Each Touch Screen

  • Each module will need to be configured to allow ThinManager to store the calibrations separately. This is done using the COM port and a monitor number.
  • Highlight the first touch screen module and select the Configure button to launch the Module Properties window.
  • If the touch screen uses a serial connector leave the Connection Type as Serial. If it uses USB change it to USB.
  • Highlight the Port (Serial Only) parameter if using serial and select the COM port being used by the monitor.
  • Highlight the Monitor Number parameter select “1” for the first monitor.
  • Select the Done button to accept the changes.

Note: Use the Set button to apply any value change for a parameter.

Repeat the actions for the second touch screen module for the second touch screen. Highlight the second touch screen module and select the Configure button to launch the Module Properties window. If the touch screen uses a serial connector leave the Connection Type as Serial. If it uses USB change it to USB. Highlight the Port (Serial Only) parameter if using serial and select the COM port being used by the monitor.
Highlight the Monitor Number parameter select “2” for the first monitor.
Select the Done button to accept the changes and close the Module Property window.
