Title (EN) HEAD RAIL-MOUNTED ACTUATOR FOR WINDOW COVERINGS
(FR) ACTIONNEUR MONTE SUR RAIL DE DIRECTION POUR COUVRE-FENETRE
Abstract:
(EN) A mini-blind actuator (600) rotates a head tube (606) of a roll-up shade (602). The actuator (600) has a dc motor and a housing that holds the motor and a dc battery, with the motor being actuated when a sunlight signal or a user-generated remote control signal is generated.
(FR) Un actionneur (600) de store à mini-lamelles fait tourner le tube de direction (606) d'un store (602). Cet actionneur (600) est pourvu d'un moteur fonctionnant sur courant continu ainsi que d'un boîtier logeant le moteur et un accumulateur à courant continu, le moteur étant actionné par l'émission d'un signal produit par un capteur sensible à la lumière du jour ou d'un signal par télécommande généré par un utilisateur.
