Title (EN) METHOD FOR OPERATING HOME AUTOMATION EQUIPMENT FOR MOTOR-DRIVEN SOLAR PROTECTION
(FR) PROCEDE DE FONCTIONNEMENT D'UNE INSTALLATION DOMOTIQUE DE PROTECTION SOLAIRE MOTORISEE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a method for operating home automation equipment for motor-driven solar protection, including: an actuator for extending and folding up a sheet, including a motor and a motor control module; and a photovoltaic cell panel that is stationary or movable by the actuator and intended to provide the power for recharging an electrical power supply that supplies power to the actuator, the operating method including the following automatic steps: predetermining a criterion for recharging the power supply; if the criterion is met, moving the photovoltaic cell panel or the sheet to a recharging position in which the panel is exposed, directly or through reflection, to the solar rays in order to recharge the power supply.
(FR) Procédé de fonctionnement d'une installation domotique de protection solaire motorisée, comprenant : - un actionneur destiné à déployer et replier une toile, comprenant un moteur et un module de commande du moteur, et 5 - un panneau de cellules photovoltaïques fixe ou mobile sous l'effet de l'actionneur, destiné à fournir de l'énergie pour recharger une réserve d'énergie électrique alimentant l'actionneur, le procédé de fonctionnement comprenant les étapes automatiques suivantes : 10 - détermination d'un critère de recharge de la réserve d'énergie, - si le critère est rempli, déplacement du panneau de cellules photovoltaïques ou de la toile jusqu'à une position de recharge dans laquelle le panneau est exposé directement ou par réflexion aux rayons solaires pour recharger la réserve d'énergie. 15 Pas de figure pour l'abrégé.
