Help Building IR or preferably RF sensor device

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have an anamorphic lens that is mounted on a motorized sled with 12v Trigger input. When I turn on the sled, lens moves out of the way to OFF position. I want the lens to move back in when I engage "VERTICAL STRETCH" feature of a video processor / projector. "VERTICAL STRETCH" is one of the menu options on the projector. I don't have any video processor but plan to get DVDO edge (which does not have 12v trigger out). How could I add IR/RF capability to motorized sled? Sled DOES NOT has an IR sensor input. I wonder if I could build IR/RF receiver/decoder which could somehow engage/activate the 12v trigger input on the sled when I pass the discreet IR code for "VERTICAL STRETCH" to the projector or video processor causing the anamorphic lens to move in place. Disengaging the "VERTICAL STRETCH" on video processor should move out the lens to its OFF position (by triggering the sled). How difficult would It be? any ideas?
I know this is possible with VP50Pro with its trigger output, but looking for DIY solution first.
I greatly appreciate any insight.
Thanks,
Satbir

If you tell me what brand remote you have, then I could possibly emulate the command through a universal remote. Many remotes use the NEC IR format, and I am familiar with that.

Decoding the IR shouldn't be that hard. The output would be a +12V out (transistor) to trip your sled.
