MOTORIZED VENETIAN BLIND
- Our motorized venetian blind will only be manufactured in the 50mm width blinds, ie in aluminium, wood, modwood and Vintage wood.
- To measure for the motorized blind you measure as per normal and we do the normal deductions.
- Motorized venetians do not have connecting brackets therefore each blind is separate with its own installation brackets.
- For the motorized venetian we supply side box brackets with centre brackets, as the normal standard swivel bracket is not used, as is the case with the manually operated venetian.
- NB: The minimum width of the blind would be 700mm as this is the length of the motor.
- Attached to the motorhead there is one small, thin black cable and a thicker white electrical cord. The thin black cord serves as the aerial and is hidden once the blind is installed. The white electrical cord is 2m long.
- The motorized venetian blind is no different in look than the normal 50mm venetian blind. What you will find on using the remote is that the blind will move effortlessly up and down with no cord and toggles in the way. Also will the opening and closing of the slats be so much easier as no pull cord has to be used especially on the heavier blinds. The slats can be tilted with the remote.
- Even though I am supplying you with certain technical aspects each order will receive with it a user manual. Please take note that the difference in the manual is that we do not use the remote as indicated but the remote as in the pricelist on page 81. Much of the other information in the manual you will not necessarily need as we set the blind for you in the factory to move up- and downwards completely. Points 6 and 7 in the manual accompanying the blind are important to you but I also describe that in layman’s terms below.
- We make use of a tubular motor, DM35RQ-8/15, in the headrail with a built-in receiver controlled by a remote/emitter. You will find the performance of the blind to be extremely silent as the motor makes virtually no sound.
- The tube is manufactured of aluminium and fits perfectly in our existing 50mm headrail.
- With the LCD control remote/emitter, Model DC1602, you will be able to operate 15 blinds at a time with one remote as 15 channels can be programmed on the remote, ie should you have four blinds you can set the one remote from numbers 1 for blind 1, 2 for blind 2, 3 for blind 3, 4 for blind 4 etc. with the side arrows when you look at the remote. The left arrow takes you down to number 1, ie reduces the channels, while the right arrow takes you up to higher numbers, ie increases the channels.
- When you press the up arrow the slats will close and simultaneously move up towards the headrail but you need to hold the button in for about three (3) When you press the down arrow the opposite will happen, viz the slats will move down still in a closed position. The same goes for the downward movement by holding in the down arrow for at least three (3) seconds. With the middle line you can control where you want the blind to stop, ie you can regulate the height at which you want the blind to stop.
- In order for you to only tilt the slats you need to press the up or down arrow but not necessary to hold them in for three seconds.
- Please be careful not to let the blind run up into the headrail so tightly that the top slat will basically squash up against the headrail as it will damage.
- When you receive the made up blind it will be set at the factory for immediate usage but you might want to change the up or down positions of the blind for some reason. For that purpose there is also a purple adjusting regulator which you use to adjust the rotation or direction.
- Between the top slat and the bottom part of the headrail you will see part of the motor. On that you will notice a white hole which can be turned with the adjusting for the upward movement of the blind. The red hole can be adjusted to control the blind moving downwards.
- The remote opens up at the back by means of a sliding panel downwards (look for the small arrow) and is supplied with a round lithium battery the size of about a 20c piece. Should you need a new one please take along the old one to your nearest hardware store or electrical shop. The battery in the remote which you will be supplied with is a lithium cell 3V1 with the code CR2450. According to specifications supplied to us the battery should last at least one year.
- The remote is attached to the wall with a screw for the back plate to rest in and the remote fits snugly onto the plate magnetically. The remote has a white plastic cover around it with aluminium strips along the sides for clean modern lines.
- Inside the box of the remote are the emitter specifications and remember we make use of the DC1602 remote/emitter.
- Failures should they occur and solutions summed up
|Failure phenomena||Failure causes||Solutions for failure recovery|
|1.||Switch on, the drive adapter runs in one-way operation||Inside limit switch of motor does not open||Crown running one circle in the opposite direction of the drive adapter, then it will operate again|
|2.||Motor starts slowly or does not work after power connection||Power voltage is slow
|Adjust power to rated data
Check circuit and correct wiring connection
Rate torque associated with installation of load
Re-install the motor
|3.||Motor stops suddenly after running||Should motor overheat
|Motor will automatically start working after 20 min of cooling|
