Open and close your parasol with ease
A real boon when it comes to operating convenience is the practical motor drive that is available as an optional extra for the SCHATTELLO and ALBATROS large parasols. It allows you to open and close your parasol quickly and effortlessly by pressing a button on a radio transmitter – and this from a distance of up to 25 metres. The motor is not visible to the eye, as it is fully integrated into the parasol pole.
Getting started couldn’t be easier thanks to Plug&Play technology. A waterproof plug-in connector from the earth cable to the motor cable is included – just like a hand crank is for emergency use if there’s a power failure. The motorisation of your large parasol is rounded off by an optional wind sensor. It measures the wind speed and automatically gives the tubular motor the signal to close your parasol. Solar power and remote operation means no cables are required.
Your parasol is easy to integrate into many Smart Home systems using a special radio transmitter station. We even have instructions on how easy a connection to the home automation systems made by elero, elsner, Gira, Loxone, Rademacher and Somfy, as well as for the KNX standard, is to carry out.
Please note: The wind sensor is only an aid and does not absolve the operator from the obligation to close the parasols when the wind picks up, and to secure them with cords.
Tubular motorArticle-No. 202112
fully integrated into the parasol pole and not visible; start-up using Plug&Play; opening and closing after pressing the remote transmitter for 3 seconds (protective function to prevent accidental activation), range between radio transmitter and parasol pole approx. 25 m; activated by remote control only; no wired operation (hardwiring) possible; incl. hand crank for emergency use in the event of a power failure. The motors can only be used in combination with the bases with locking hinges, e.g. AZ024, AZ120, SZ150 etc. Compatible with LED lighting, not compatible with radiant heaters or loudspeakers. Connection: 230 V~ / 50 Hz.
Single-channel hand-held radio transmitterArticle-No. 202105
sufficient for use with one parasol. 1-channel (2 signals): For operation of one parasol or for simultaneously opening/closing a group of parasols.
Holder for hand-held radio transmitterArticle-No. 202115
suitable for the single radio transmitter 202105. Secure to a wall.
18-channel hand-held radio transmitterArticle-No. 202106
for use with several parasols. Allows individual and group activation of the parasols. Programmed ex-works, subject to agreement. 18-channel (36 signals): For operating 18 parasols or groups separately. Each motor can react to 3 radio transmitter signals, for example “Parasol #3”; “Group on west patio”; “All parasols as a group”. Each motor can also react to 2 wind sensors.
Holder for hand-held radio transmitterArticle-No. 202116
suitable for the 18-channel radio transmitter 202106. Secure to a wall.
Wall-mounted radio transmitterArticle-No. 202104
The radio transmitter is secure to the wall as a fixed unit. Direct visual contact with the radio receiver is required. For operation of one parasol or for simultaneously opening/closing a group of parasols (2 signals).
Radio transmitting stationArticle-No. 202108
2-channel radio transmitter station for opening and closing using tubular motors by means of a home automation system (e.g. elero, elsner, GIRA, KNX, LOXONE, Rademacher or somfy). Direct visual contact with the radio receiver is required. 2-channel (4 signals): For operating 2 parasols or 2 groups separately. Unidirectional and sequential activation. Easy integration using isolated switch contacts (> 3 sec). Can be combined with an 18-channel radio transmitter for individual and group activation. Input 12 V / 24 V DC or 230 V~ / 50 Hz.
Wind sensorArticle-No. 202108
The wind sensor measures the wind speed and automatically gives the tubular motor the signal to close the parasol; a potentiometer is used to set the sensitivity of the signal. Solar and remote operation; no cabling required. It is secured in a suitable spot using the two wall plugs included. It should be installed in the most exposed spot, and close to the parasols. Direct visual contact to the radio receiver is required. Only suitable as an aid; when the wind picks up, the operator remains responsible for closing the parasols and securing them with a cord.
