Power linking projector, linear actuator (projector lift), and projector screen motor on one switch

I have a moorized projector screen - elite screen "silver max 92h" - And projector - epson powerlite- that I built a lift for using a firgelli linear actuator. The screen is a 12v dc motor and has an up/down/stop switch that connects to 110v outlet power (and I think uses 60hz resistance) The projector says "100-200V, 50/60 Hz, 3.2-1.4A" Linear actuator just has 2 wires coming out of it (thought it would come with a switch but it doesn't) and is 12VDC. With no limiter it will stop at full up and ful down positions which is perfect for my lift. My question here (if you've made it this far haha) is how do I possibly connect all of them to one switch that drops the screen, drops the projector (by powering the actuator) and also turn on the projector (and adversely will power down the projector and pull up the projector and screen by reversing polarity in the actuator and screen motor)? Hope that's not too confusing and thanks for any help you can provide I don't know much about this sort of thing. Also one idea I had was to tap the actuator into the line heading from the switch to the screen motor, they are both 12VDC so my hope is that the one switch would then lower them both, bur I don't know if that would work? Then I'd have to just figure out the projector power? HELP! Haha or at least let me know I I'm on the right track. Thanks a lot!! -MJ

SOURCE: USING 1 CHANNEL

I can't find any documentation for your amp; it was made when Jensen was owned by Recoton, and they're no longer in business. With any 4-channel amp, you can't bridge all four channels into a single channel. What you can do, if you're connecting it to a single sub, is to bridge two of the channels into one channel and leave the other two channels unused. It doesn't usually matter which two channels you pick, but some 4-channel amps designate channels 3 and 4 (or rear channels) for the subwoofer. Whichever ones you use should have a "LPF" or "LP" crossover setting available.

SOURCE: Designing a linear regulated power supply

what you are doing is over **** for 300 mA, now if you will pulling some real wattage then you would need linear regulation.
just use a 10.00 ac adapter . or a zener diode .
the calculations in real time analysis is complex GE has the formula online . but a spike at 300ma will be assorbed by the transformer easilly. if you are protecting delicate circuit then a fuse will not work quickly enough , fry and blow is all they do.
a crowbar circuit is what most designers use nowdays.fast and efficient.
There are plenty of IC regulators on the market that will give these specs but I think your are over thinking your needs unless you have an exact spec for medical research.

SOURCE: will 25 amp power supply pull 250-linear?

Yes it could, but... but it also depends on your antenna, what antenna are you using. Do not upgrade the power of your radio unless you know your antenna can handle the output power.

The Key FOB is stuck in the ignition. How can I get it to eject?


Most if not all vehicles have a Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.

Your best bet is to take it to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer ! The fix involves taking the steering column apart an or the floor shifter assembly ! Also electrical test to determine what is the problem !

I have a 2007 Cadillac cts my key stuck my Windows stuck my flashers flashing and my car starts up so what's going on


Your key is stuck ? It won't move , it won't come out of the lock cylinder ? Can you shift it from park to drive , neutral etc... Are there any lights lit on the dash , yellow wrench light , service vehicle soon light ? any messages on Driver Information Center ? Your Cadillac has numerous electronic features controlled by modules - computers ! If your not familiar with electronics an these things I suggest you take it to someone who is . Does you Cadillac have console fool shifter ?

The windows are no exception , they are controlled by modules in each door an are connected by a serial data communication bus !
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door window can be operated, either from a power window switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA) , or, from a power window switch mounted locally on its associated door. The driver door window can be operated only from the driver door power window switch built into the DDSA.
When the driver door module (DDM) receives a driver door window switch request from the DDSA, the DDM examines the request and inspects to see if it has received any messages from any of the other vehicle modules prohibiting the movement. If no prohibitive messages have been received, the DDM then applies power and ground to the driver door window motor to move the window as requested.
When a passenger door module, passenger front door module (PDM), LH rear door module (LRDM), or RH rear door module (RRDM), receives a window switch request from, either the DDSA or the window switch mounted locally to its door, the passenger door module examines the request and inspects to see if it has received any messages from any of the other vehicle modules prohibiting the movement.

Precor efx 546 error.


please follow this steps and fix it. God bless youError 43 - Zero Switch not FoundDescriptionThe C944 and several versions of C96X used a lift position identification system that did notutilize a potentiometer.Instead, it utilized a switch that would be physically actuated by the lift when the lift was in thezero incline position. A revolution sensor counted lifted motor revolutions to determinesubsequent lift positions. In addition two limit switches where used to remove power from the liftmotor if the lift moved outside of it's normal range.When the unit was powered up the lift would start to hunt for the zero switch. It would first go up4% (maximum lowest physical position was -3%) if it did not find the zero switch or it hit the upperlimit switch, it would then go down until did find the zero switch. When the zero switch waslocated it would stop, the system would then know its physical position and be prepared tomonitor the revolution sensor. If during this power up procedure the zero switch was not found anerror 43 would be displayed.Possible Causes1. The lift position actuator does not physically operate the zero switch.2. The lower PCA is bad.3. The zero switch is bad.Possible Remedies1. There are several physical problems related to the lift platform mounting or the plate the zeroswitch is mounted on that can cause the actuator knob to miss the zero switch as it movespast. Repair the lift platform mounting, repair or replace the lift switch mounting plate asrequired.2. The lower PCA provides a 5 VDC power source for the zero switch. You should measure 5VDC across the zero switch when the zero switch is activated. If the reading is significantlylow, remove both wires from the zero switch and repeat the measurement across the wiresremoved from the zero switch. If the reading is still significantly low, verify the zero switchwiring. If the wiring is intact and correctly connected, replace the lower PCA.3. Move the lift to position where the zero is switch is not activated and remove power from thetreadmill. Remove both leads from the zero switch and measure the zero switch with anohmmeter. The zero switch should read very near 0 ohms. While measuring the zero switchwith the ohmmeter, activate the switch by hand, the reading should change to infinite (open).If either of the above readings are significantly incorrect, replace the zero switch.

Is there a cluch in sliding gate motor


There is no internal clutch for the linear actuator gate motors... only a mechanical limit switch(micro-switch) which is only relevant in the arm-retracting motion, and a sight-wheel & eye which is used for electronic limits in the arm-extending motion.

2000 gmc sierra truck windows will not work even after change motors


If you have a voltmeter/multimeter you can check the window relays to make sure they are actuating when you depress the button. You need to verify the power supply is regulating to the motor from teh window switches. Second thing you need to verify is that you changed not just the motor but the entire regulator assembly. no offense to some aftermarket motors but they are underpowered and produced in china, etc. They cant lift the heavier regulators in your truck that are factory regulators. Since it sounds like you are handy and replaced the motors yourself, then I woudl reopen the door panel and actuate the window switch. You will be able to see if the gears on the motor head are turning to actuate the cables on the regulator. If you dont see movement then the problem is with either the fuse assembly or power supply to the window switches. If you see movement then the issue is with bad regulators and or underpowered motors. If you purchase the motors from ebay, I would be suspicious of the motors... Good luck.

I just changed the bulb but the unit will not power on. I can hear clicking as if it is attempting to power on.


The problem with the bulb cover interlock(safety switch) tab is that it is molded with the plastic cover. When these projectors are ceiling mounted upside down, the heat from the bulb melts the interlock tab and causes it not to actuate the interlock switch.


If you push the switch arm in you can hear the switch click. The fix I did on my projector was to bend the switch arm so that it stays actuated. You can use a small set of needle nose pliers or two small screwdrivers. be careful to only bend the arm in the middle, if you break the arm from the switch, you will have to go in and bypass the switch.... Just be carefull...

After you bend the switch arm try to press it in, if you did it right you won't hear the click. install the lamp, cover, and your done.

Ford Taurus Window won't go up


If you are hearing the clicking from the power window relay the only things left would be a break in a wire or a failed window lift motor. If this window only goes down but not up I would inspect the wiring at the door jamb for a damaged wire. If this fails to go either way I would remove the panel, insert test light into the lift motor leads (X2)and actuate the switch, if I get power then I would replace the lift motor. If you get no power in one direction - test switch.

3-way wall switch left in up/down position


Most Projection screens which are electronically operated have a couple of switches inside, so that when the motor runs to the stop point, the switch activates and the motor stoops. The central point is there purely to allow you to have the screen at a custom height, say to make a 4:3 screen appear as 16:9 without loads of white space around the picture. Also, if the motor didn't stop, it wouldn't burn out at low point, as it would simply wind the screen back up the wrong way round the axle.

Hope that helps.
