Q : What is the difference between the Evanesce (tension) B and Evanesce(tension) Series?
What is the difference between the Evanesce (tension) B and Evanesce(tension) Series?

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 : Do any of the trim pieces from the Evanesce B Series screen come off to allow installation if there is no access above the screen?

Yes, please click HERE for a diagram to achieve a direct control (dry contact).

Q: My projector is not triggering the screen to drop. How do I test the trigger to ensure that the screen is not the issue?
Q: My projector is not triggering the screen to drop. How do I test the trigger to ensure that the screen is not the issue?

By exposing the red and green wires of the provided trigger, connect a 9-volt battery to the bare wires according to their polarity with the screen plugged in to the wall outlet. Once the wires make contact with the battery’s terminals, the screen will drop. Releasing the voltage from the battery will make the screen rise automatically. This indicates that the trigger and screen are functioning properly. Please check with your power source’s manufacturer for further assistance.   If the screen does not drop when applying the voltage with the battery, the next step would be to test the screen’s circuit board. Do this by plugging in the provided wall box and pressing the DOWN button. If the screen drops, then you may need a replacement trigger. Please contact Elite’s service department for support by sending an email to service@elitescreens.com.

Elite Screens offers a wireless Universal 5-12 volt projector accessory (Part# ZU12V) for projectors that do not have a trigger output. Contact your preferred Elite Screens reseller or visit shop.elitescreens.com for information about purchasing this product.

Q: If I install a Motorized Screen into the ceiling, what are my possible methods of controlling it?
Q. If I install a Motorized Screen into the ceiling, what are my possible methods of controlling it?

Since the Spectrum’s Infrared (IR) Sensor is hidden within the ceiling, there are a few options in which to control a ceiling installed Spectrum Screen:

  1. IR Eye Extender (ZSP-EYE&12V):  With the need of line of sight, the IR signal will not be sensed by the IR receiver built within the housing of the Spectrum.  By using an IR eye extender that attaches via the Spectrums all purpose RJ45 port, the extended sensor provides a solution to this problem.
  2. Radio Frequency (RF) Remote (ZSP-RF-B, ZSP-RF-W): The Spectrum, unfortunately, does not come with an RF remote.  It does, however, have an RF receiver built into the housing.  Without the need of direct line of sight, an RF remote would be a good control option.
  3. In-Wall Switch (ZIW-B, ZIW-W, ZIW-W1):  The spectrum comes with an all purpose RJ45 port.  By routing a cable within the wall, the In-Wall Switch provides a close proximity control option.  In addition, you can create your own in-wall switch by purchasing only our ZIW-Module.
  4. Wireless 12V Trigger (ZSP-TR01):  Use your projector as a screen control option by hooking up this simple device to your projector’s output trigger port.  If your screen doesn’t have an output trigger port, the Universal Wireless 12V Projector Trigger (ZU12V) works just as well for all projectors.
Q: Does the ZPM-RT2 control kit work with other Elite Screens electric screens?
Q: Does the ZPM-RT2 control kit work with other Elite Screens electric screens?

No, the ZPM-RT2 only works on the Spectrum 2 series.
Note: Compatible only with Spectrum 2 Series with serial number 198Exxxxx and after.  Example. 198E00497

Q: Are Elite’s electric screens compatible with Harmony remotes?
Q: Are Elite’s electric screens compatible with Harmony remotes?

Most of Elite’s electric screen products are compatible with Harmony remotes and are in their database. The only electric screens series that are not compatible with Harmony remotes are the Starling and Starling Tab-Tension Series (Versions 1 and 2). New Elite Screens series may not appear in the Harmony database, but you can simply select the VMAX2 series as the IR codes are identical for all series. Click here to visit the Harmony website for further assistance with programming your remote with our electric screens.

Q: Can I increase the Top Black Border on my screen?
Q: Can I increase the Top Black Border on my screen?

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: Why does my electric screen no longer function?
Q: Why does my electric screen no longer function?

There are a few possible things you could check:

1. Make sure your wall plug has power and that the screen is properly plugged in.
2. If the screen works well with the wall switch but not with the remote controls, ensure that fresh alkaline batteries are installed in the remote controls.
3. Check your screen’s internal fuse. (Please call our Tech Support for location of fuse before tampering with the screen.)
4. Our Home2, CineTension2, Kestrel, Raptor and VMAX Plus 3/4 screens feature a tubular motor equipped with a Thermal Relay.  This feature will automatically shut off the screen should your motor become too hot, thus preventing overheating of the motor.  To correct this, simply leave the screen alone for 20-30 minutes and try again.
