Our high quality whisper quiet RollerTrol™ DC tubular roller motors are precision
engineered to exacting standards, with state-of-the-art remote control systems.
We have prepared this FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) summary to help you understand the unique features of
Q. Are these motors quiet when operated?
Yes! At an average 38 db, our whisper quiet RollerTrol™ motors are among the quietest motors in
the industry. Many other tubular motor brands are much noisier.
Q. Can I make blinds and projector screens that have a custom width and height, to fit the dimensions of
Yes! The width is controlled simply by the length of slide-on tubing you select (minimum is 11", or 29 cm),
and the height is controlled by the length of material you select (maximum number of motor turns is unlimited, unlike
Q. Can I make horizontal or angled blinds?
Yes! If you take a regular spring loaded window blind and remove
the latching mechanism, you can attach the tubular motor with wire or
fishing line to deploy/retract the blind. You can also install plastic
or wood guides on either side to help keep it flat.
Q. Are there good reasons to use low voltage DC instead of regular AC?Yes! There are many reasons:
lower cost overall
safe: low voltage 12 volts will not harm children or adults
an electrician is not required for installation
wiring is small gauge, typically lamp cord, easy to conceal
motor can be used in a variety of environments (home, RV, marine, etc)
many power source choices: A/C house current, battery, solar, etc.
Q. Do the motors have a warranty?
A. Yes! We guarantee them against defect for a full year. They have been factory tested to 30,000+
cycles (approximate life of 82 years at 1 cycle per day).
Q. Do they work if there is a power failure?
If you use a battery in the system, they will work even when your house
power has failed.
We have small high-efficiency rechargeable backup batteries that fit
inside any standard valance or fascia board. They can also
be concealed lower down behind something, or you can use your own
Q. Could I use a solar panel?
Use a 12v solar panel system, wind generator, water wheel or other 12v
power source. These are very efficient motors that require very little
power to operate, typically 5 to 10 watts for perhaps 30 seconds when
operating. If you use the radio remote type, the standby power is
approximately 18 mA for the radio receiver. We also have special
ultra-low power radio models with a standby power current of only .03 mA
Q. If I don't want a battery, can I run these on regular AC house power?
A. Yes! Just use our standard plug-in 12v power supply 'wall wart'. The battery is completely optional.
Q. Can I use these motors for a home theater screen AND blackout window blinds?
A. Yes! You can make our RollerTrol™ motors do many different things.
Q. Can I control window blinds and screens separately, with a single remote?
A. Yes! Our multi-channel radio controllers can control radio equipped RollerTrol™ motors
individually, but they also have an 'ALL' setting to move everything at once.
Q. Can I buy one unit now and add others later that will work with the same remote control?
A. Yes! Our RollerTrol™ motors have full 'learning' capabilities and can be added to an existing
system at any time.
Q. Can I control blinds and screens in other rooms?
A. Yes! Our Rollertrol™ RF radio type remote controls pass the signal through walls and have a
range that can reach anywhere in a typical home.
Q.Can I havequite a few individual channelson myremote control?
A. Yes! Currently we have models with up to 14 individual channels
Q. Can I interface these systems with other home automation systems?
A. Yes! Our controllers can accept external switch closure signals from other types of home automation
Q. Can I set the upper and lower travel limits easily?
A. Yes! The Rollertrol™ radio equipped motors use an electronic system set by activating a 'learn' mode with the
multi-channel remote control, and the limits are set from the remote. You don't have to touch the motors at
all. This is much easier than the old style with fiddly screw settings on the motor.
Q. Can I have a long window covering or screen with this system?
A. Yes! The Rollertrol™
motors use an electronic 'pulse count' system, instead of the old style
of screw adjusted mechanical limit system. Unlike the older mechanical
designs, the number of rotations allowed is style="font-family: Georgia;"> We provide a 'no quibble' return policy for 7 days after receipt of goods (buyer is responsible for return freight, 25% restocking fee).
