Due to the use of the Intel Mobile Chipset technology used in the Impact-E range, if the unit has been started up without a Display attached this will cause the unit to switch to the LVDS output. This is evident when cycling the unit with an attached display and getting display output up to the Windows Loading splash screen.
Once the screen has gone black, using the hot-key-combo "CTRL+ALT+F1" will change the output back to VGA/DVI
Please note if an Administrator password has been set, the hot-key-combo will not work. If this is the case, reboot the unit and enter Safe Mode, at which point you can remove the password.
Alternatively please update the Display drivers by using IEGD
Many of the older operating systems are only now available through the embedded supply channels. These operating systems are not available with copies of the installation media which system builders can supply to their customers. We provide 3rd party recovery software called Acronis Personal. This will be installed on your system and will allow you to take recovery back-up images after you have installed all your applications. If you are interested in this please request it when ordering an Amplicon PC.
Data is being corrupted over a 485 network that implements a Magic 485 device. This occurs even over short cable runs (<5m) and at low baud rates (<19.2Kbaud). The Magic has been implicated in the problem by a process of elimination and substitution.
Likely to be caused by the specific electrical characteristics of the problem communications link and can in the vast majority of cases be solved by the addition of line biasing resistors. These should be added to only one of the 485 Magics in the 485 network, as described below-
Connect screw terminal 3 (Tx data) to VDC using 1K2 resistor Connect screw terminal 4 (/Tx data) to Gnd using 1K2 resistor
Assuming all other criteria for a successful connection are satisfied then communication over the 485 network should now occur correctly.
The majority of the USB extenders have a 14 USB device address limit connected to the REX. If you are using USB hubs cascaded to the USB extenders and require more than 14 USB devices connected to the Rex then you should use additional extenders and spread the devices across both sets of the USB extenders.
