TYPES OF MOTORIZATION
There are four styles of motorization
These are typically powered with a battery wand or plug in 12 volt transformer and can be installed with a Solar Battery Charger that constantly chargers the batteries requiring no battery changes or wiring. This option is ideal for hard to access windows.
For larger shades requiring a stronger motor to raise and lower the shades. Power for these is provided by a 24 volt plug-in transformer or if hardwired, a dedicated remotely installed 24 volt transformer with low voltage wiring running to each motorized shade.
Hunter Douglas PowerView shades utilize an 18volt system. Power options are 18 volt battery wand or 18 volt plug-in transformer. For hardwired applications a dedicated, remotely installed 18 volt transformer can be installed with low voltage wiring running to each motorized shade.
This is the best and only option for very large shade with widths over 84” and heights up to 124”. More powerful than low voltage, the benefit is that one motor can be used to raise and lower up to 3 shades spanning a series of windows. These are individual shades that are linked (interconnected), all operating at the same time.
