Q: What is the difference between the Evanesce (tension) B and Evanesce(tension) Series?
A: The Evanesce B and Evanesce Tension B Series' differ from the regular series in that the B Series were mainly designed for home theater applications. With that in mind, we focused on the most popular aspect ratios and diagonal sizes used in a home theater setting. We also reduced the size of the housing and motor. By focusing on fewer models and by reducing the amount of materials used for the housing unit, we were able to cut down on production costs which we in turn passed along to the consumer.
The Evanesce and Evanesce Tension were designed more for commercial applications such as conference rooms and auditoriums. Nevertheless, the screens can also be installed in dedicated home theaters. The Evanesce and Evanesce Tension feature a wider array of aspect ratios and sizes, have a faster motor, and utilize a more robust housing unit. All series come with a complete remote kit and have hardware accessories that allow for either a below or above ceiling installation (excluding Evanesce Plus).
Q: How can I extend my RJ-45 accessory such as my 5-12 v trigger, 3-way wall switch, and IR "eye" sensor?
A: You can extend the length of your cable using the ZSP-12V-50B. This 50 feet RJ-45 cable includes an extender plug coupler to allow you to join connections to your existing accessory.
Q: What preventative maintenance does Elite Screens recommend for electric screens?
A: Elite strongly recommends using either a standard surge protector or a power conditioner on all electric projection screens.
Q: Will I void my warranty if I cut the power cord on my Evanesce screen to hardwire it?
A: No, you will not void your warranty, but cutting the cord is not necessary. Please see our hardwired connection (direct control) instructions here.
Q: Where can i find the IR codes for my Evanesce Tab-Tension B IR remote?
A: Elite provides binary codes for the IR remote, see below.
Up: 1111 0000 0001
Stop: 1111 0000 0010
Down: 1111 0000 0100
Q: What is the frequency of your RF remote?
A: The frequency of the RF remote is 433MHz
Q: Can I increase the Top Black Border on my screen?
A: No, your screen’s Top Black border has been set to deploy to its full extent. Attempting to increase will damage the motor and void your warranty with Elite Screens.
Q: What are the Evanesce Tab-Tension B Series Model Numbers?
A: Here is the full list of model numbers for the Evanesce Tab-Tension B Series: ETB100HW2-E8, ETB120HW2-E8

A: Please click here for the motor information of your Elite electric screen.
Q: Can the Elite Screens Evanesce in-ceiling screens be installed a drop ceiling with t-bar ceiling tiles?
A: All of our Evanesce Series in-ceiling screens (Evanesce, Evanesce B, Evanesce Tab-Tension, Evanesce Tab-Tension B, and Evanesce Plus) include installation hardware kits for ABOVE and BELOW. The kit includes four long vertical brackets to allow the screen to be suspended from any above structure.
Q: What is the power cable length of the Evanesce Tab-Tension B Series Electric Screen?
A: The power cable length for all Evanesce Tab-Tension B Series models is approximately 70.8" (1.8M) + with extra control box. Note: This measurement is accurate for USA only, other countries may be equipped with different lengths for each model.
Q: What is the recommended amperage of Elite’s 5-12V Trigger?
A: Regarding the amperage of Elite’s 5-12V Triggers, their transistor pulls (3.3V)) to MCU GPIO.
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.
Q: Can I Interface my 5-12V Trigger with an AC Power Switch?
A: There's a couple of suggestions.
1. 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 Evanesce Tab-tension B.
2. 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.
