MotorLink® technology enables different opening/closing speeds to be used, dependent upon the digital command received. A slow and soundless speed when in automatic mode contrasts with a faster more audible speed when activated by the manual keypads in order to provide an immediate obvious response to the user. There is a third speed of operation for swift opening for fire safety and alarm functions.
Accurate data communication between the actuators and the MotorControllers enables the actuators to report back their precise opening/closing position. This enables the BMS system to know the exact position of the vents at all times enabling the accurate positioning of the windows. This ensures that all the windows in the same part of the building can be opened to the same point thus maintaining the external appearance of the façade.
There is a large variety of MotorLink® compatible window actuators available including chain actuators, spindle actuators and locking actuators. The correct actuators can be specified taking into account:
There is no better way to secure a budget than by choosing tried and tested solutions based on international standards. By using MotorLink® products no additional dedicated software development is required – simply set-up some parameters online to interface with KNX, BACnet, LON or Modbus. This reduces commissioning times and associated costs.
