Add-A-Motor 80 - Drapery Controller
[AAM80]
$85.89
Item: AAM80

Rating: Not Rated
Price: $85.89

The Model 80 Add-A-Motor opens and closes draperies and vertical blinds that have a pull cord (or ball-chain) with a "U' shaped end-loop. Its drive wheel fits cord (chain) supplied by all window covering manufacturers. It can be operated on a time schedule, or by remote control (not included) according to the features of the control switch supplied by the consumer.

The Model 80 opens and closes window coverings (WC) to all positions that can be selected by hand operating the WC cord (chain). It can be set to open and close a WC partway, all-the way, and all positions between. Virtually any two positions can be set as Automatic Open and Close stop positions. It does not have a built in timer.

HOW THE MODEL 80 WORKS

Similar to hand operating the Window Covering, the Motor can pull the cord (chain) in 2-directions to open and close the WC. The Motor "knows" to reverse the direction of travel for each new operating Cycle. The Motor is controlled by two adjustable Stop Position Screws that allow you to set virtually any two Automatic Stop Positions.

The Model 80 runs until an Automatic Stop Position is reached, or until the WC is all-the-way open or closed. The normal run time is about 20 seconds. To prevent the Motor from running continuously it has an electronic "supervisor' that automatically turns it OFF after 45 to 60 seconds. It also has a Drive Wheel designed to slip if certain conditions exist.

TIME SCHEDULE OPERATIONS

Select a Clock-switch with 2 ON plus 2 OFF settings, or more. Set it to the current time. Proceed as follows:

EXAMPLE:To automatically open window covering at 7:45 AM, and close it at 8:30 PM, set four (4) actuation times as follows:

1. Set a 7:45 AM ON actuation time.
2. Set a 7:46 AM OFF actuation time, or as soon as possible after.
3. Set a 8:30 PM ON actuation time.
4. Set a 8:31 PM OFF actuation time, or as soon as possible after.

The number of "ON" settings determines the number of times the WC can be opened and closed daily. A clock-switch with 6 ON settings can open the WC up to 3 times daily, plus close them 3 times daily; a total of 6 movements. Each ON causes the Motor to move the WC to the next Stop Position. Some switches permit 12 or more WC movements daily, with different times on weekends.

The "OFF" settings of the clock-switch play a special role. An OFF setting should be set to occur from 1 to 30 minutes after every ON setting. Failure to set an OFF after every ON prevents automatic operation and causes the WC to remain at the last Stop. This condition is easily corrected by turning the switch to OFF.

For fully automatic time schedule operation, always set the clockswitch with an OFF setting following each ON setting. HOT SELLER!

Notice/Warning: Not to be used with Chicken Coops. For Chicken Coops, use model number D20.
