NOTE: Due to an interoperability issue, Power Polling for this projector is not available. If power feedback
is required, we recommend using a third party power current sensor. If the projector's automatic shutoff
timers are disabled, the SmartPanel will reliably remain in sync with the projector unless the projector is
powered on or off manually.
II. Wiring Specifications
NOTE: For a wiring diagram, please see the SP Controls Application Note for the Sharp XG-P20XU
1. RS-232:
Wire the Panel RS-232 port to a female DB9 as follows:
RX to 2
TX to 3
GND to 5
JUMPER 7 and 8
Connect this female DB9 to the projector port labeled RS-232C.
2. Infrared Emitter:
Wire the Panel IR/Serial port to a female 1/8" Mini as follows:
IR/SER to tip
GND to ring
Attach to the projector port labeled Wired Remote using a male 1/8” mini to male 1/8” mini (not
included).
III. Additional Projector Information
1. If the Panel is wired to the Projector’s Wired Remote port, the Wired Remote port must be manually
switched to IR on the projector.
2. You must set the Economy Mode labeled “MNTR Out/RS232C” to OFF. If you leave this setting on,
the Sharp will not respond to RS-232 control when in standby mode. See Application Note Section V.

3. You should set Economy Mode labeled Auto Power Off feature to OFF. If you leave this setting on,
the Sharp will automatically shut itself off when no signal is detected for several minutes. If you desire
automatic shutdown, use the Panel’s Automatic Shutdown Timer. See Application Note Section V.
Special Control Note for instructions.
4. Baudrate: The RS-232 port of the projector must be set to 9600 bps (which is the default projector
factory setting). See Application Note Section V. Special Control Note for instructions.

II. CONTROL WIRING
This section specifies how RS-232 and Wired Remote
should be wired to the Sharp projector.
PROJECTOR CONTROL
A. RS-232 should be connected to the Sharp control port
labeled RS-232C IN. Connection should be as follows:
SENSE
GND
IR/SER
+12V
CTS
IR/SERIAL
GND
RTS
TX
RX
RS232
1. Wire the Panel to a female DB9 as follows:
RX to 2
TX to 3
GND to 5
JUMPER across 7 and 8
2.
Female DB9
55 44 33 22 1 1
9 8 7 6
1/8" Mini
Female
Jumper
8 to 7
Connect this female DB9 to the projector port labeled
RS-232C IN
B. The Wired Remote should be connected to the Sharp
port labeled Wired Remote.
1/8" Male Mini to 1/8" Male Mini
(not included)
NOTE: If the Panel is wired to the Projector’s Wired
Remote port, the Wired Remote port must be
manually switched to IR on the projector.
RS-232 to
RS-232C IN
Connection should be as follows:
1. Wire the Panel to a female 1/8" Mini as shown; wire
IR/SER to tip and GND to ring. Direct wiring to male
1/8” is not recommended as it makes removal of the
Panel for service more difficult.
2. Attach to the projector port labeled Wired Remote
using a male 1/8” mini to male 1/8” mini (not included).
3. Alternately, replace the male to male cable with the
included the IR Emitter and attach it to one of the IR
windows on the projector. The emitter glows red when
IR is emitted so wiring can be verified.

III. TROUBLESHOOTING
Additional tips can be found in the SmartPanel Configuration and Installation Guide.
The Projector keeps turning itself off!
The Panel turns itself off when power verification indicates that the projector is off (see Note 1). Also, if
the Automatic Power Shut-Off Feature is on, the projector will shut itself off if it does not receive a signal
after fifteen minutes.
•
Check to make sure the RS-232 connection is correctly wired. If a third party power current
sensor is being used, make sure correctly wired and calibrated. The most common cause for
power polling failure when other control works, is that the RX line is incorrectly wired or soldered.
•
Verify that the P20XU’s Economy Mode Automatic Power Shut-Off Feature is set to OFF as
explained in the Special Control Note in Section V of this document.
•
Also verify that the MNTR Out/RS232C is set to OFF as explained in the Special Control Note in
Section V of this document. If this setting is incorrect, the Sharp will not respond to SmartPanel
power polling and the Panel will shut itself off (see next note and Note 1 below).
The Panel does not do anything at all.
When power is applied to the Panel it should run through a brief power on self-test, during which all of
the Panel lights will turn on and off in sequence. If you do not see this self-test, make sure power is
connected correctly and that polarity is correct.
The Panel has only partial control over the Sharp.
Verify that both RS-232 and the wired remote are correctly wired. The most common error is reversal
of RX and TX for RS232, and polarity reversal of the wired remote. Note that the Sharp is controlled
using both Wired Remote and RS-232. If a subset of functionality appears to be working, verify that
both types of control wiring are correctly wired.
Also, be sure that the Wired Remote port is manually set to “IR” and not to “Gyro” on the projector
and that pins 7 and 8 are jumpered on the female DB9.
IV. TECHNICAL NOTES
1.
By default, projector power is verified by polling every few seconds via the RS-232 port. Power
polling can be suspended by depressing and holding the On key; polling will be restored when the
key is released. Should the Sharp power off, the Panel will usually detect this condition and power
off within twenty seconds. Should the Sharp power on, the Panel will usually detecting this condition
and power on within ten seconds.
2.
The Sharp is controlled via RS-232 and wired remote. The Sharp can alternately be controlled with
RS-232 and IR emitter. A discussion of the advantages of Wired Remote versus IR can be found in
the SmartPanel Configuration and Installation Guide.
3.
The lockout timer specifies the amount of time allowed between sending POWER OFF and POWER
ON to the projector (the delay allows the projector bulb to cool before re-powering). This delay can
be configured using the Configuration Utility; however, adjusting the lockout timer delay is
strongly discouraged as rapid re-powering causes undue wear on the projector’s bulb. Also, the
Sharp will not allow power to be restored before a minimum delay has expired. Therefore, disabling
the lockout delay will cause potentially confusing Panel behavior.

SmartPanel Projector Driver Application Note
Sharp XG-P20XU
V. SPECIAL CONTROL NOTE
Read before attempting to control the projector
The XG-P20XU can be configured with two power saving settings as an Economy Mode. These settings
determine whether (a) the projector shuts itself off in the absence of an input signal; and (b) whether the
projector responds to RS-232 command when in standby (“off) mode.
When installing the P10XU:
• You must set the Economy Mode labeled “MNTR Out/RS232C” to OFF. If you leave this setting
on, the Sharp will not respond to RS-232 control when in standby mode.
• You should set Economy Mode labeled Auto Power Off feature to OFF. If you leave this setting
on, the Sharp will automatically shut itself off when no signal is detected for several minutes. If you
desire automatic shutdown, use the Panel’s Automatic Shutdown Timer.
Economy Mode settings are changed via onscreen menus, Options: Economy Mode. Make sure both
arrows point to the RIGHT, away from the “green leaves.” Access the onscreen menus with either the
SmartPanel’s hidden functions, or the Sharp’s remote control.
Baudrate: The RS-232 port of the XG-P20XU projector can be configured to different baud rates. The
codes used in the projector driver assume the projector is set to 9600 bps (which is the default projector
factory setting). This should be verified using the on-screen menus. In the pulldown menu labeled
“Options” scroll down the RS-232C and select 9600. Press ENTER to save the setting.
Source Selection Switching: Please be aware that because of the way that the XG-P20XU responds to
RS-232 commands to switch sources, there is an unusually long delay in switching between input
sources (approximately 2 seconds). IR control of source selection is not possible for the SmartPanel at
this time.
Questions should be directed to SP Controls technical support at help@spcontrols.com.
