Abstract
(EN)
This disclosure provides a window controller that includes a command-voltage generator configured to generate a command voltage signal. The window controller also includes a power-signal generator configured to generate a power signal based on the command voltage signal. The power signal is configured to drive an optically-switchable device on a substantially transparent substrate. In some embodiments, the power-signal generator is configured to generate a power signal having a power profile that includes one or more power profile portions, each power profile portion having one or more voltage or current characteristics.

La présente invention se rapporte à un dispositif de commande de fenêtre qui comprend un générateur de tension de commande configuré pour générer un signal de tension de commande. Le dispositif de commande de fenêtre comprend également un générateur de signal de puissance configuré pour générer un signal de puissance sur la base du signal de tension de commande. Le signal de puissance est configuré pour commander un dispositif à commutation optique sur un substrat sensiblement transparent. Selon certains modes de réalisation, le générateur de signal de puissance est configuré pour générer un signal de puissance qui présente un profil de puissance qui comprend une ou plusieurs parties de profil de puissance, chaque partie de profil de puissance présentant une ou plusieurs caractéristiques de tension ou de courant.
