External Display

Flx Straight On With Monitor Transparent Small 2

External monitors can be connected to FLX, FLX S48 and ZerOS Server.


As the external monitor output connection is a DVI-D (digital) connector, passive DVI to VGA adapters will not work, as the digital signal will need to be converted to analogue. To do this an active adapter will be required to convert DVI-D to VGA.

Passive DVI to HDMI, or DVI to DisplayPort adapters may be used.

Enabling/Disabling the External Monitor

On FLX S48 and FLX consoles, the windows the internal touchscreen displays are affected by whether you have an external monitor connected. This is primarily to avoid having information duplicated on the internal and external monitor.

By default, FLX S48 will have the external monitor disabled. This does not mean that your external monitor won’t work. Your external monitor will still display, and if you have a touchscreen or mouse connected, you will still be able to interact with the external monitor. When the external monitor is disabled this means that the View button will control the internal touchscreen, and you will have access to all information internally. Enabling the external monitor, will result in the View button controlling the external monitor instead, and some windows will then no longer be available internally.

To do this, tap Setup -> Settings and use the Monitor option under Displays.
