I’m trying to control the motor of my Garage door with a Z-Wave device. Unfortunately the motor is a little different to the normal garage door openers you can find everywhere in the US.
It’s an Italian model called Gaposa Split 60. http://www.gaposa.it/ita/prod/?industriale/serrande-commerciali/split
The motor is connected to a single-phase control panel.
The control panel receives remote control signals, that’s how I can control the door. There is no wall switch, keypad or anything like that. Only the remote.
My best chance is probably to connect a Z-Wave device to this control panel, and not directly to the motor.
I only have 2 problems:
- The Panel as well as the motor use 230V (european products). So I’d need some Z-Wave switch for 230V with US frequency.
- I’m not sure how I’d have to connect the switch. I have an idea but I don’t really want to try stuff out and end up damaging the Z-Wave device or even the motor.
So I’m hoping someone here has had a similar problem or simply has more of a clue of all of this then myself.
The available connections look like this.
As far as I understand it, there terminals 8 and 10 are to connect a wall switch (which I could control with a Z-Wave device).
There are also some exemplary connections listed. In the most simple one (without safety edges), there is a NO pushbutton connected to the terminals 8 and 10 (it’s indicated as optional)
Here’s the manual: https://www.jcm-tech.com/downloads/UM_3200504_ROLLER868_EN.pdf
I’m hoping someone can help.
