  • Fusion Brain to control Toucscreen on/off

    Can the fusion brain be used to control the on/off of a touchscreen? Specifically, I'm wondering if I can either power the touchscreen with the fusion brain, or, connect up to the IR remote or even power switch to do it.

    Any suggestions?

    Set the screen to auto-on. Then put a relay on the fusion brain to kill the power to the screen when you want it off, or give it power when you want it on. It should turn on when it gets power.

      Well with the power switch it is just an on/off pulse, so that would work. If the screen has an auto-on function you can get to, then might as well use that and a relay as suggested above.
