You've seen how handy our window blind and shade systems are, now you can use the same safe, low voltage technology and RADIO REMOTE CONTROL to open and close your windows. This unit also includes a "wired in" RAIN SENSOR .

These units use a similar type of remote as our shade and blind motors, and it is compatible with our roller shade motors if you use the BroadLink hub, but it is not compatible with our Zwave controller. If you want Zwave control with a rain sensor, please consider using our other actuator with a Zwave rain sensor.

The non-adjustable flex link direct-push stroke is 12" (300mm).

It is simple to adapt this actuator unit to most types of windows and skylights because it does not need to rotate like hinged units do.

The opening/closing force before obstruction is sensed is approximately 60 lbs (38 kg), current consumption is ~3 A, protection class is IP32. These units have been stress tested to over 3,000 openings.

If you are planning to use this for a skylight opener, note that you can check the force required to open the skylight by standing on a bathroom scale and pushing up on the skylight with a long broom handle or other suitable pole. If your skylight is heavier than the actuator capacity, you can offset the extra weight with gas shocks, torsion springs or external counterweights.

PLEASE NOTE: Window and skylight openers can be dangerous to children and adults as they normally have a considerable amount of force that is used to draw the window closed and provide security. There is more than enough force to crush fingers of small children and/or cause injury to adults, pets, or other animals. If you need to motorize a window, skylight or other object where there is a potential danger because the motor is within normal reach, you should consider taking steps to screen the window.

The linear chain actuator pushes straight out from the housing which lines up unobtrusively with your skylight frame, fastened in place with mounting screws. Attach the end of the chain actuator to the skylight frame with screws and you're done!

Use it to control the motion of anything you want, including windows, greenhouse vents, skylights, etc. Powered by 12v DC, it works great with solar and 12v battery sytems too. It is also compatible with our BroadLink hub.
