Automatic Retractable Awning Controls
Automatic controls which could not be imagined are now common place and their use on sunblinds and shutters is no exception.
Automation can be specified to respond to a number of stimuli:
- Solar control, where the device operates automatically when a certain degree of light is received by the sensor. This is especially useful where sunblinds are specified to prevent furnishings or stock fading as the blind will operate even when no one is present.
- Timers may be specified.
- An anemometer (wind speed sensor) is always fitted when timer or sun sensors are used in order that the blind is retracted in windy conditions that otherwise could result in damage.
- Deans can design command controls to operate combinations of units to operate together, or in groups and can de-activate other control units, such as timers or other sensors according to a customer's requirements.
