Does anyone know of a window blind spinner to close a shade?
I don’t need to retract the blinds, but I need to spin the rod to open a close shutters. Doesn’t require much effort and I found the only product below:
Wondering if anyone has seen something else. Trying to avoid a complete DIY project though.
Do you mean FOR how many seconds? Have you modified the servo to be Continually rotating? Also, I’m confused why you have 2 transistors before your servo. If you have a servo that works with an Arduino, this is not required. You can wire directly to the board. For example,
That servo does not require the complex circuit you describe. You merely have to connect to 5v and ground and your output pin.
Are you actually able to get granularity with that? I would thing the timing would be very difficult to figure out. I did a retrofit with a servo and an ESP board in the headrail and I’m able to adjust directly to the percentage that I dial in. Works perfectly.
Servos come in 2 varieties, 180 degree and 360 degree. They can also be modified to run in “continuous rotation”. But I don’t know how you are going to DIY a solution to go around that knob and still have a 1:1 rotation unless the servo is mounted directly out from the knob, which would look terrible.
