Magnetic Charger

Simple & Efficient Charging

The Automate Li-ion battery motors are a robust solution for new and retrofit shade applications. The lithium ion battery can hold a charge up to 500 shade cycles, but like every battery device a recharge is required. Charging Automate shades has never been easier with the latest release of the Magnetic Charger. Simply snap the charger in place and pull off when fully charged.

A strong magnetic pull force eliminates the need for a ladder to access the charging port; bringing greater independence to home occupants when a recharge to their Automate shading system is needed. Removal of the magnet is a simple pull to disconnect. The attached motor pole is discreetly hidden and out-of-site when charging is idle preserving the finished aesthetic of the window shade.

Building wide Automation

4 Channel Motor Controller

The Automate 4-Channel Motor Controller is a standalone unit that controls up to four Mechanical Limit motors all on one switch, individual switches, or even dry contact closure devices. By default, the controller has four intermediate positions (20%, 40%,60%, and 80%) to provide precise control of each shade.

To expand control, each unit can be daisy-chained to the system to a total of 128 motors across 32 devices. The unit is small so it can be discreetly installed out of the way on the top of the ceiling or in an IT closet.

The 4-Channel Motor Controller can integrate with existing BMS (Building Management System) using either RS485 or TCP/IP network making it ideal for larger scale projects and Building Automation.
