>Shutters / Blinds Contents Shutter control - Customer benefits? Shutter control methods Shutters at home Shutters at work Schneider Electric offer overview
Sun/Brightness Night/Darkness Time control >Shutters / Blinds Customer benefits? • Improve comfort & make consumers' lives easier • Prevent people from hard work or awkward movements • Avoid having to get up (remote control) • Avoid opening windows (when it 's cold out or when it' raining and for elderly or disabled people who have difficulty moving) • Save energy by improving thermal insulation • Protection against heat & sun in daytime • Protection against cold at night Reduce heating or cooling time. • Programmes for opening/closing when you want.
Customer benefits? Save time In the morning, time to go to work, shutters open automatically Avoid accidents (avoid false moves + hot temperatures) For children (avoid the risk of falling from upstairs windows) For elderly and disabled people Improve security Protection of homes, small offices & shops, garages, etc. Presence simulation Sun/Brightness Night/Darkness Time control >Shutters / Blinds
>Shutters / Blind Applications Slat shutters Roller blinds Roof windows • For Residential Pool covers Home video screens Garage doors Gates And also sun breakers and awnings
>Shutters / Blinds Applications Sun breakers/Anti-glare screensin offices Slat shutters (with slat orientation) Roller blinds • For Buildings Opened Closed Professional garage, shop window shutter Conference room screen Sunshade slats on the roof Photos for internal Use only
Residential Renovation >Shutters / Blinds Our technologies • Shutters may be controlled directly by users • By hard-wired solution • By infra-red solution • By radio-frequency solution • (FUNK CONNECT, AIRLINK offers) • By home control system(Intelligent Home Controller) • By bus: KNX, LON Residential & Buildings Residential Buildings
Our technologies Shutters can also be controlled by external sensors Wind measurement Shutters protected from violent gusts of wind Rain control Automatic closing if rain is detected Brightness Comfort enhanced by lowering blinds or shutters if light is too bright Darkness Safety enhanced by automatic closure when night falls Time-switch Comfort and safety enhanced by systematic opening / closing at a set time °C >Shutters / Blinds
>Control methods 3 approaches to shutter control • Individual control • Up-Down control of each blind/shutter: • Local control by a switch or directional push-button • Group control • Control of a group of blinds: • 1 group control + individual control • Centralised control • Associate groups of blinds: • 1 centralised control + group controls + individual controls.
>Control methods Individual control L N PE • One control = One shutter • Each shutter is controlled separately S1 S2 = Mechanical switch On Off On Off Down Up M Red circuit = Down Blue circuit = Up S1 S2 Off On (S1= Off) + (S2= Off)= No movement (S1= On) + (S2= Off)= Down (S1= Off) + (S2= On)= Up (S1= On) + (S2= On)= Impossible due to mechanical locking On Off Down UP
>Control methods Group control principle • Each shutter is controlled by: • Group control • Individual control • External sensor • Time switch • Suitable for • a room with several shutters(living room, open spaces, etc.) • a group of rooms • a floor or a wing of a building… Group control Individual controls 1…….X See wiring diagram in appendix
>Control methods Centralised control principle • Each shutter is controlled by: • Centralised Control • Group control • Individual control • External sensors • Time switch • Able to control all the shuttersof all types of buildings Centralised control Group 1 Group 2 …
3 2 1 >Control methods Mechanical Push-Button and SwitchWhat’s the difference? Push-button • The shutters move up or down as long as the button is pressed until the shutter's internal limit switch is reached. • Button released The shutter stops immediately. Double rocker switch • One press (pulse) on the first rocker The rocker stays in position and the shutter moves up or down. • Then you can: • press again on the same rocker, in the opposite position the shutter stops. • press once on the opposite rocker the first rocker returns to zero (mechanical lock) and the shutter moves in the other direction. 1 2 3
Limit switch DIRECTION 1 M Up S1 L Down Protect. S2 Limit switch Direction 2 N >Control methods Types of motors • 230 V AC Motor(wall windows, doors) • Integrated limit switches S1 & S2 to stop Up and Down movements • Integrated protection • To go Up, send 230 V AC on Up line • To go Down, send 230 V AC on Down line • In this case, 3 wires out of the motor + PE
>Control methods Types of motors • DC Motor(typical application: roof windows, Venetian blinds, awnings) • Integrated limit switches S1 and S2 to stop Up and Down movements(can also be serially hard-wired) • Integrated protection • To start the motor: Send + DC. • To change direction, cross polarities • In this case, 2 wires out of the motor + PE Limit switch Direction 1 M L S1 L r AC + E 230Vac DC - F N S2 Limit Switch Direction 2
Our technologies How to install a brightness sensor For sun protection, place brightness sensors on the South and West sides of the building, which are exposed to the sun How to install wind control We recommend the installation of a wind sensor: For general control, on the roof or on the windiest side For awning protection, close to the shutter The conversion unit can be mounted outdoors (IP55) or indoors. >Control methods i.e MTN580692 / 690 3 m cable Can be extended to 20 m with a shielded cable MTN580693
>Control methods Protection • For shutter installation We recommend a dedicated protection line from the control cabinet For control cabinet Mini-Pragma Series 13635… PF’Clic 16614 Surge arrestor if necessary Control cabinet L N RESIDENTIAL ID’Clic XE 23157 or equivalent (30 mA for protection of people) Opale or Mini-Opale Series 13401 D’clic 16A 20726 or equivalent Light circuit 1 Outlet Circuit 1 RESIDENTIAL Light circuit 2 Shutter circuit 1
Entrance door Individual Control >Examples of applications • I want to control my shutters in my living room Centralised control from the entrance door Individual control for each shutter Flexibility with remote to control each shutter individually
Entrance door Brightness sensor Individual Control >Shutter control at home • I want to save energy by using my cooling system less A brightness sensor controls the opening of the south and west shutters. A natural solution to keep the air cool in my living room!
Brightness sensor Entrance door Individual Control >Shutter control at home • Combination of shutter time switch & brightness sensor Temperature: the brightness sensor controls closing/opening when it's too hot. In the morning, I'm often in a rush to get to work: the time switch opens the shutters automatically! At night, I secure/optimise the temperature of my house. The time-switch closes my shutters automatically even if I am still out. The astro function optimises open/close operations wherever I live!
