Hardware design | Firmware design | Prototype build
An engineering company approached us to upgrade the electronics for their existing window opener system with a view to improve performance, reduce product cost and enable wireless controls
Electronic Partners designed and developed a motorised actuator for one of their window products. The actuator opens and closes windows by pushing (or pulling) a chain. The chain is driven using a standard DC (brushed) motor via a cog.
Our scope of work involved designing the electronics to control the opening and closing of the window.
In addition, a remote control was developed to open and close the window using BLE.
Although this project appears simple, the challenge was to deliver a design that was able to control large windows operated using multiple actuators. This involved ensuring that the actuators work as a synchronized set to avoid twisting and breaking the window.
