Motor for blind control recommendations needed


(Tito) #1

Could anyone recommend the best motor and gear set for window blind motion? I have been testing many combinations of motor, gear set and RPM to close and open horizontal blind without much success. The biggest issue is torque needed with desired RPM. Direct coupling of stepper motor will not work. I need low speed and high torque. Please share me if you have any successful test or experience. Thanks in advance.

Hopefully you’ll get some answers from people with specific experience.

Meanwhile, if you’d like to see what some other community members have done, you can look at the project reports on the quick browse lists in the community – created wiki. There’s a list for shades and motorized windows.
