Title
(EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS TO CONTROL ARCHITECTURAL OPENING COVERING ASSEMBLIES
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET APPAREIL POUR CONTRÔLER DES ENSEMBLES DE REVÊTEMENT D'OUVERTURE ARCHITECTURALE
Abstract
(EN) Methods and apparatus to control architectural opening covering assemblies are disclosed herein. An example architectural opening covering assembly includes a manual controller operatively coupled to a tube to rotate the tube. The tube includes an architectural opening covering. The example architectural opening covering assembly also includes a motor operatively coupled to the tube to rotate the tube. A local controller is communicatively coupled to the motor to control the motor. The example architectural opening covering assembly further includes a gravitational sensor to determine an angular position of the tube.
(FR) L'invention porte sur des procédés et sur un appareil pour commander des ensembles de revêtement d'ouverture architecturale. Un exemple d'ensemble de revêtement d'ouverture architecturale comprend un dispositif de commande manuel couplé de façon fonctionnelle à un tube pour faire tourner le tube. Le tube comprend un revêtement d'ouverture architecturale. L'exemple d'ensemble de revêtement d'ouverture architecturale comprend également un moteur couplé de façon fonctionnelle au tube de façon à faire tourner le tube. Un dispositif de commande local est couplé de façon à pouvoir communiquer au moteur afin de commander le moteur. L'exemple d'ensemble de revêtement d'ouverture architecturale comprend de plus un capteur gravitationnel pour déterminer une position angulaire du tube.
