The PDX3000/LDX9000/LTX9000/LDX1000 family of universal line displays has been preassembled to make the installation as simple as possible. Please follow steps below for models of different interfaces.


Steps For Hardware Installation


    Serial interface displays   

  • Mount the pole display to the metal base plate using the mounting hardware provided.  
  • The pole display can be used in a freestanding mode or attached to the counter using the remaining mounting hardware.
  • Connect the DB9F connector to the computer’s serial port (for example, COM1 or COM2) if serial interface model is used.  
  • For serial pass-through model, connect the DB25M connector to the peripheral device and turn on power of the peripheral device. Connect the female power jack of the power adapter to the male power jack of the interface cable.  
  • Plug the power adapter into a 120VAC outlet. 
  • A start up text message will be present for a short time to identify the selected command set and selected baud rate. When this message disappears the cursor will be displayed at the left-most digit of the top row.


    USB interface displays

  • Mount the pole display to the metal base plate using the mounting hardware provided.  
  • The pole display can be used in a freestanding mode or attached to the counter using the remaining mounting hardware.
  • Install USB driver following instructions on "USB DRIVER INSTALLATION" section.  
  • Plug the USB cable from the pole display into the computer’s USB port.  
  • For double sided USB pole displays, connect the female power jack of the power adapter to the male power jack of the interface cable and plug the power adapter into a 120VAC outlet.  
  • A start up text message will be present for a short time to identify the selected command set. The test message will NOT be present until USB driver is installed correctly. When this message disappears, the cursor will be displayed at the left-most digit of the top row.


 USB Driver Installation


    Windows 7/8/10

        

        The USB drivers are available on our web site at www.logiccontrols.com. Please download and unzip the driver files before installation. There are two types of driver interface available.  If the POS software is only able to access COM port for the pole display, use the virtual COM port interface. After the driver is installed, the USB interface will be assigned a COM port name so that the POS software will be able to communicate with the USB display as a COM port. Note that the operating system will assign the display a different COM port number if the display is plugged into a different USB port.  Another driver interface use a specific device name (\\.\LCPD3\, \\.\LCLD9\, or \\.\LCLD1\) to access the pole display directly. 


Install this driver if you are using OPOS or the POS software was tailored to use this device name.  

1. DO NOT plug the device in USB port

2. Run “install.bat” batch program in this driver package:

        

3. Plug the device in USB port and wait for the hardware wizard message box to display:

        


        4. Click <Next> button to continue installation automatically. When finished, click <Finish> button to end installation (this can delay some seconds): 

    


          5. Invoke Device Manager to check COM port number or the device driver's name.  The driver is installed under "Ports (COM & LPT)":


            


6. To change the assigned COM port number, double click "LCI Line Display (\\.\LCLD9\) (COMx)" to display the Properties dialog box and select <Port Settings> tab.  Then click <Advanced...> button


7. Click on COM port number box to select from the list of unused port number and click <OK> to accept new settings (example COM7):

            

  8. Unplug the device and plug the device again to check COM7.


NOTE: It’s better to set the virtusl COM port number x between 1 – 8. 


MAC OS X 10.6.6, 10.6.6 X64, 10.5.8 INTEL, 10.5.8 PPC

Latest USB drivers are available on our web site at www.bematechus.com. Please download and unzip the driver files before installation.

1. DO NOT plug the line display in USB port

2. Download the zip file into “Documents” folder. Unzip the zip file.

3. Double-click “Install_lcpdDll” to Install LCI pole display API library.

4. Plug the pole display to Mac PC USB socket. And wait until a logo message displayed on the screen of the device.

5. Run the testing program by double clicking “QcPdUsb” to test the API.

Note1: 

If error message box pop out: 

1. "QcPdUsb cannot be opened because of a problem" - the driver was not installed properly. 

2. "No LCPD devices found" - check the connection of the USB line display with Mac PC. 

3. "... tty ..." - do the followings:  

Open the terminal in the “Applications -> Utilities”.  

Run “cd usr”.  

Run “cd local”.  

Run “sudo rmdir lib” to remove the folder.  

Run “cd ..” to return to "usr" folder.  

Run “sudo rmdir local” to remove the folder.  

Run “cd ..” to return to current user folder.  

Run “sudo rmdir usr” to remove the folder.



Note 2:

To run the testing program in a terminal: 

    1. Open a terminal window. 

    2. Navigate to the testing program folder with “cd” command. 

    3. Run “chmod 755 example” in the terminal window. 

    4. Run “./example”. 

 
4.3 LINUX KERNEL 2.6.XX

1. Login as root user.

2. Copy "setup" folder to Linux.

3. Modify the permissions of "install.sh" and "testlcpd" by the following command:

 chmod 777 install.sh  

    chmod 777 testlcpd

4. Modify install.sh according to your Linux distribution. 

    Type "vi install.sh"

 Find the line of "AUTO_FILE=/etc/rc.d/rc.local",  

    If you use Redhat/Fedora, keep it as it's.  

    If you use Suse, modify it to "AUTO_FILE=/etc/rc.d/boot.local"  

    If you use Ubuntu/Xubuntu, modify it to "AUTO_FILE=/etc/rc.local"

5. Install driver: 

    Type "./install.sh".

6. Enter the auto-run shell script as step 4, add the following line right after "mknod /dev/usb/lcpd c 180 128" line.

- chmod 777 /dev/usb/lcpd

7. In the script as step 4 (for example, rc.local or boot.local), if "exit 0" line exists, please move it to the LAST line!

8. Type "lsmod" to check if "usblcpd" has been loaded into system.

 - lsmod | grep usblcpd

9. Connect PD to USB Port.

10. Test PD.  

        -After installed driver, enter "setup" folder and type "./testlcpd" to see if data on PD.

11. If you want to change USB port in which PD's plugged, please follow the steps below.

 Unplug the USB cable of PD.  

     Run "rmmod usblcpd" and "rm /dev/usb/lcpd" commands.  

     Replug in USB cable of PD to another USB port.  

     Run "./install.sh" again under setup folder.
