Notes on Cable Lengths:
Please Note
➀ Make sure power is disconnected before installing controls.
➁ LVC-III and MC1 are line voltage controls, designed to operate one
motor with activation by Low Voltage input commands.
➂ The MC1 receiver has a built in fuse that provides protection from
electrical shorts and overload.
➃ Avoid static discharge, especially to screw terminals and eye jack.
Please Note:
All input devices (low voltage LED switches, IR eye, RF receiver) which
connect to the Eye jack must be connected using electrically straight 4conductor modular cable (RJ11). This means colors do not cross over: blue
leads to blue, orange to orange, etc. (see diagram below)
Electrically Straight Data Cable
You can have a total of approximately 100 feet of cable (this includes ALL
cables connected to ALL Eye and Aux ports) per MC1 or LCV-III, up to a
maximum of 1000 feet. However, the RF Receiver can drive up to 1000 feet of
cable.
Spring-Loaded Terminals
When running wires to the spring-loaded terminals on the MC1 or LVC-III,
use the following steps:
➀ Strip outer wire sheathing back 1", then strip insulation of individual wires
back 3/8".
➁ Place screwdriver into the top slot to open the spring-loaded terminal.
➂ Slide wire into terminal connection point.
➃ Remove screwdriver. Wire is now locked into place.

Using Telephone Cable
If you use standard telephone cable, you must first remove one connector,
turn it over and re-attach, to ensure that the cable is electrically straight (see

AC current.
Screens, AeroLifts and Micro Projector Lifts are shipped with internal
wiring complete and control switch(es) fully boxed. Wire to connect screen to
switch(es) and switch(es) to power supply should be furnished by installer.
Connections should be made in accordance with approved wiring
diagrams, and wiring should comply with national and local electrical codes.
All operating switches should be “off” before power is connected.

Notes on Power Consumption:
Any input device may be connected to any available Eye port. All Eye
ports are "powered" by the MC1 or LVC-III they feed off of. Each MC1 Eye
port provides 2 milliAmps to the connected input devices; the LVC-III Eye port
provides 75 milliAmps at 5V of power. You may attach any combination of
input devices to an MC1 or LVC-III Eye port, as long as the combined power
requirements do not exceed the available power from the MC1 or LVC-III (see
chart). RF receivers and LED switches require their own power supply
when used with the MC1. Power supply can power up to three input
devices.

It must be electrically straight (see explanation on
page 2). LED switch must be within 1,000 feet of the MC1, must have a power supply, and must run through a splitter before the MC1. Power supply can power
up to three input devices. A dry contact wall switch may also be connected to the MC1 using 3-conductor wire.
When a button is pressed, the LED next to the button turns from green to red, and remains red until another button is pressed.

➁ Before you can send commands, the RF receiver must “learn” the remote
transmitter. When the RF receiver first receives power, a red LED on the
bottom of the receiver activates. This means it is in learning mode. To
“learn” the transmitter, simply point it at the RF receiver and hold down the
“up” button until the red LED goes out.
➂ Once the remote is learned, press “Up” to test the screen. If screen goes
down, then the motor direction needs to be reversed. Press and hold
“Stop” for five seconds, then press the “Up” button. Motor directions will

Wire to connect power to MC1 should be between 18 AWG and 12 AWG (solid or stranded) 2 conductors with ground. Wire size needs to be sufficient to
carry the motor load. Red and Black wires are the “open” and “close” leads from the motor. The MC1 comes enclosed in a metal box conforming to the National
Electric Code (NEC) with appropriate spacing between the wires and any exposed parts of the box. IPD 4 for control via Ethernet (network communication) is
connected to MC1 using low voltage modular data or telephone cord (RJ11), which is isolated from the AC power line. This wire is commonly called Silver Satin.
It must be electrically straight (see explanation on page 2). IPD4 must be within 1,000 feet of MC1. A dry contact wall switch may also be connected to the MC1
using 3-conductor wire. An RF transmitter can also be connected to the IPD4 to allow commands to be transmitted to a radio receiver connected to the MC1.
Protocol and Address
The IPD4 shall be pre-configured with an IP address of 192.168.42.4 and port 4001. To communicate with the IPD4, establish a connection to its address
and port, and then transmit data packets containing instructions. The protocol for the IPD4 are not as complete as that for the RS232 protocol used by the MC1,
but they are compatible. Please consult the RS232 Protocol Guide for details of the instructions.
Follow the standard pin configuration for MC1 wiring (black always on the left, straight through). The ENET port on the IPD4 allows for the network connection to be established. The RJ45 connection (T568A) can be configured as a standard straight through connection (see Fig. 1 below) when connected to
network hub. A cross-over connection (T568B, see Fig. 2 below) is used when connecting directly to a PC without a network connection. A data quality CAT5
cable must be used for the ENET port on the IPD4 and connect to the network.
