General Electric Screens Accessories FAQs
A: You can extend the length of your accessory using the ZSP-12V-50B. This 50 feet RJ-45 cable also includes an extender plug coupler to allow you to join connections to your existing accessory
A: There's a couple of suggestions.
- If controlling your screen’s drop and rise with a light switch, we offer our (ZIW) integrated wall switch that will work just fine with your electric projection screen.
- To operate the projection screen using the 12-Volt trigger, We recommend connecting the trigger’s RJ45 connection to your projector since it was designed solely for that purpose. Running the 12-Volt trigger through an AC/DC converter will likely not work and may even prove harmful to your product or the projector screen’s main board, so we strongly advise against experimentation with mismatched accessories doing what they were not designed to do.
A: The maximum distance is 300 feet of extension RJ-45 cable.

This means that the RF remote input is 12V and the driving Amp is :2mA. Through the RJ45 port, the input is 12V，and the driving amp is: 1mA.
A: Yes there is. You will need to splice your USB cable with an RJ45 cable. A USB has 4 wires, but you will only need the red and black. Splice them to the RJ45 orange and green wires and connect the USB. See diagram below for reference.
NOTE: If you are using your own RJ45, please use Pin 7 and 8 (Brown Pair Wire). Click here for Color Codes
