Project details: Blinds control with access to the control system of the building

 

 

 

Industries

  • Facility Management, Propulsion Technology

 

Technology fields

  • Propulsion Technology, Testing and Measuring Technology

 

Project requirements

  • The aim of the project was the development and production of a modular expandable controller in order to regulate 64 blinds motors simultaneously. Operation is via a building control system as well as manually via digital inputs (external push-button). The control unit is parametrized via a serial interface. In order to determine the exact position of the motors, an encoder is provided.
