Control Systems

Control systems integrate all operable building envelope systems into a single distributive network. This unique network approach allows each controller to perform individual tasks while cooperating with other building envelope systems.

Control systems are s a two motor controller designed specifically for the operation of motorized shading systems. In addition to controlling two motors, each controller is capable of accepting six dry contact inputs. Programmable layers allow for the addition of sensors and A/V system integration. The controller operates stand-alone 
or networked using BACnet/MSTP over RS-485.

Control systems manages internal light and glare by responding actively to varying environmental conditions via signals or inputs from devices such as sun and wind sensors, switches, remotes, timers or a combination of all five. The system is compatible with all shading systems featured on this site.

Overall, control systems maximize indoor environmental quality and reduce energy consumption; creating comfortable, productive and sustainable built environments.

Programmable layers include:

  • The capability for each shading device to evaluate how its performance contributes to a specific lighting condition.
  • Sun tracking and scheduling capabilities for time of day, week and/or year.
  • Glare and heat gain control.
  • View displays the entire floor plan of the system, including sensor performance and the status of each shading device.
  • Provides access to system logs, lockout/overrides and alarms.
  • Monitoring and configuration from within a standard web browser.
  • Gives an individual user point-and-click control of shades in their individual area.
  • Supports scene control, scheduling and tweaks.
  • Predetermined parameters allowing customized functionality for each building system.
