I do not know your receiver, but letīs try it together:
Connect as follows:
Receiver Color Actuator
A red 1
B white 2
Sensor green Sensor (maybe 3)
Ground Shield 4
Leave +5V, because this could be used for the polarizer or hall-actuator and
I believe your motor is a reed-type.
The whole ting should run by now. If the actuator goes in the wrong
direction, just exchange red against white on the receiver-side. If 3 or 4
is Ground, you have to check by yourself.
