- The tubular motor is used for roller blinds and projection screens. The motor is integrated with a wireless receiver within its casing. No wiring is required between the motor and its control point. Our motor is convenient, reliable and user-friendly.
- Motors have built-in overheating and overload protection, and are constructed of flame retardant materials. The components of the tubular motor is prelubricated so as to reduce noise. The motor should however never be hit or bumped against an object as it may break or lose its settings. When picking up the blind keep the motor on the top side of the blind as it should not be put down on the ground in order to prevent accidental damage. Lubricants should not be added to the motor or any other components.
- The tubular motor can be set for the client to have the fabric rolling up or down to a desired height. This can be changed by the client (directions to follow).
- The 50mm diameter tube is constructed of aluminium and the bracket sets into which the tube fits are construed of powder-coated steel.
- There is a 3 (three) year warranty on the motor and a 1 (one) year warranty on remotes when factory defect is proven.
- The brackets are substantially larger than our slim normal roller blind brackets as the motorized tube (50mm diameter) is so much heavier.
- When the fabric has been attached to the tube there will be a gap of approx 20mm between fabric and bracket on either side of the blind. Should there not be a wide enough frame down the sides of the window panes in order for the glass to be covered by fabric it would probably be more advisable to order the blind face fit.
- There are specific connecting brackets for different fits such as corner windows, bay windows, two blinds next to one another on one tube etc. (Refer to table for the different brackets & connecting brackets available under SYSTEM ACCESSORIES on the next page). It is important to indicate to the factory whether the blinds are bay- or corner windows or blinds on one tube or on separate tubes in one window for us to be able to supply the correct brackets and/or connecting brackets where two or more blinds are fitted on one tube with only one motor.
- When ordering a motorized roller blind you order as for any normal roller blind, ie reveal, face fit, pin-pin, exact. For reveal fit we do the necessary deductions, ie 7mm. Please take note of the following information regarding roller blinds: when rollers are installed cutouts are hardly ever required to accommodate for tiles or skirtings as the bracket sets already take up approximately 40-47mm of the space.
- Remember that on bay- and corner windows the measurements put through to the factory have to be EXACT as we cannot do the deductions not knowing how the blinds are to be fitted into the openings.
- Maximum widths and drops of blinds in accordance with indications as given in the pricelist under normal roller blind sizes.
- The minimum width of our motorized blinds would be 800mm as this is the length of the motor.
IMPLEMENTATION OF THE MOTOR FOR THE BEST RESULTS
- When using the motorized blind remember that there are no control chains. However, please indicate to the factory on which side the controls would have been for us to preset the direction in which the fabric has to roll up and down.
- The blind rolls up as normal with the fabric rolling down behind the tube but should the client require the fabric to roll over the tube the direction of the turn can be programmed on the control.
- On the motorhead of the blind there will be one thin cable. The thinnest cable is the aerial for the remote.
- The third thick electric cable gets connected to either a power point or a distribution box. As a reminder, the brown is the live wire, the blue neutral and the green/yellow the earth. The motor is supplied with 1.4m electrical cord.
- There are two “turn/travel” holes in the motorhead. The stiff plastic adjust pen (refer to table) is used to set the preferred stop point of the fabric. The steps to reprogramming your settings should you wish, are as follows:
- To set the limit if required the whole system (fabric included) has to be installed.
- Direction A & B on the motorhead are the turning directions of the motor output shaft.
- The limit cannot be set until the remote control has been activated. (Refer below for the setting of the remote.)
- Should you wish to adjust the fabric set point, adjust Direction hole A (the top hole) in a clockwise (+) direction and the fabric will move up to the set point.
- Should the fabric exceed the set point for any reason, adjust Direction A anticlockwise (-) upon which the motor will automatically switch to Direction B (bottom hole) and then back to Direction A until the set point is reached. Direction A rolls the fabric down while Direction B rolls the fabric up.
THE REMOTE CONTROL
- Before the remote control function can be used the control channel setting has to be activated to let the internal radio receiver (wireless) record the transmitter channels. At most 16 (sixteen) channels can be recorded per motor. Whenever the motor receives the remote channel signal, it will work correspondingly.
- The remote control includes 1 (one) battery (round CR2032 battery).
- One remote can be programmed (up to 16 channels) to move blinds individually but then more than one motor will be required.
- Two or more rollers can be used in conjunction with one motor whilst all are connected to each other with the appropriate brackets (refer to table) for specific requirements. With one motor all blinds will roll up or down simultaneously. If the client does not want them to move simultaneously two motors will be required which can be programmed on one remote.
- For bay- and corner windows one motor can be used as the correct connecting brackets make provision for this but the blinds will then move simultaneously. For blinds to move separately in these instances separate motors will have to be used.
- There is only one speed to the operation of the blind.
- When there is a power failure the settings and programming will not be affected.
- Should it be evident that these products are treated with disrespect, resulting in damage to the tubes, motors, remotes and any electrical appliances related to these blinds as well as damage to the fabric resulting in unusual/unnatural warping or discolouration, these will not be replaced. Before a complaint is lodged, make sure that you do a full investigation into the reason for the problem, eg windows being left open, too close to the sea, no regular cleaning, window or door frames not fitting snugly into walls, wet or damp areas around the building, thickness and type of glass used for the openings
