Portescap 16N78 Athlonix Brush DC Motor for Automated Door & Window Blinds

Automated Door Window Blinds Motor

A leading global provider of doors and windows was seeking a motion solution for an automated blind and shade application. This innovative design is remote-controlled and was created with both the private residential market and the commercial real estate market in mind.

Since doors and windows act as barriers to the outside elements, the application needed to be durable enough to withstand specific operational conditions like extreme levels of temperature and humidity, as well as shock and vibrations. Other features such as quiet operation and long life expectancy were also required by the customer.

Portescap was selected as the motion solutions provider based on its expertise in micro-technology, fast prototyping ability, highly durable products, and ease of communication. Portescap engineers recommended a customized version of the 16N78 Athlonix Brush DC coreless motor. This solution has a life expectancy of 10,000+ cycles, which was over 20 times more than the competition’s product offered the customer.

The end result was a quiet, durable, long-lasting product that catapulted the customer to the top of their industry.
