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 will automatically detect whether a monitor is present or not, and therefore will automatically switch between whether your View button controls the internal or external monitor.

If you would rather enable/disable the external monitor manually, tap Setup -> Settings and use the Monitor option under Displays.

The command line will always be displayed along the bottom of the external monitor. If you disable the external monitor, or unplug the external monitor when FLX is set to auto detect, the command line will also be displayed along the bottom of the internal touchscreen.
