Motorized cellular skylight shades north solar screen electricity and magnetism purcell pdf


Simply press the button on the remote and walk away while the radio controlled motor does the work for you! Shades are powered by a discrete and easy to use custom rechargeable lithium ion battery which is fully concealed in the headrail. The rechargeable battery is built into the back of the shade at the top. Simply plug the charger into the charging port (pigtail) in the back of the shade and the other side into a standard household outlet to recharge overnight. The charger is black and comes with 156” of wire. No special installation hardware or wiring requirements are needed. The rechargeable battery comes fully charged from the factory. No external battery wand is required to operate the shade. The factory programs the upper and lower limit stops for every shade but does not program channels for rechargeable motors. Channel programming is completed after shade installation.

The average battery charge will last 6-12 months based on an averaged sized shade that’s raised and lowered once per day. The battery can be recharged up to 500 times. It takes approximately 5 hours to recharge the motor when depleted. However, it is best to recharge when the shade starts running slow so as not to lose the programming. If the battery dies and the shade is closed it can be more difficult to pry it open and reset the limit stops.

The solar panel can be mounted to the window casing with supplied brackets or can be mounted directly to the glass using supplied special double stick tape. Solar Panel Location Requirements vary depending on the latitude of your home, angle of the skylight shade and direction the windows face. In general, the more horizontal (flatter)your skylight is, the more southward it faces, and further south of Washing DC you live, the better the solar charger will work. The more vertical, north facing and north of Washington DC you are the more you will have to use the plug in charger.

The remote utilizes one 3V battery (CR2032). Batteries are included. Batteries are under warranty for up to 3 months from date of purchase. Motorized shades installed into windows with metal casings may have a reduced radio frequency range or may not operate at all depending on the application. Don’t let the antenna on the motor touch any metal objects. This may interfere with signals from the remote control. Make sure to leave the top of the shade head rail open (motor exposed) do not cover, especially with metal materials. This could result in a reduced radio frequency range for the remote control or the she shade may not operate at all, depending on the application.
