See all condition definitions- opens in a new window or tab
Seller notes: These controllers were returned to the factory to have a new motor/gearbox fitted. The initial gearboxes had an axle support bush that was too shallow. This resulted in the axle and gearwheel flexing and dislodging when a heavy load was introduced. The new motor/gearbox unit has been tested to lift a 12KG weight vertically for one metre. Controller has therefore been rebuilt but comes with full one year warranty.
The Least Expensive Automatic Curtain/Blind Control System in the UK.

Basic Operation:

The controller drives the pull cord of a corded curtain or blind track via a drive wheel/pulley....(ball cord or regular cords up to 2.5mm diameter). 
Simple two screw wall fixing.
Auto operation with plug in light sensor....opens in the morning, closes at dusk.
RF remote module with key fob size transmitter....20m range (through the wall, not line of sight)
Remote Module has latching or momentary positions.....latching operates full travel with single push of the key fob button transmitter - momentary means you hold the button down for travel. Latter suitable for using the controller to rotate vertical blind louvres for precise angle positioning.
X-10 compatible...i.e can work with home automation systems by plugging 3rd party home automation module into the volt free remote controller module's jack port....accepts 4mm DC mate plug with 1.75mm pin.
A key fob sized transmitter is supplied coded to the receiver. Additional transmitters can be added by depressing a coding button on the receiver.   Over one million coding combinations ensure uniqueness.
Open and Close Limits (your curtain span) set manually by adjusting two operating limbs which rotate and strike a centrally positioned on/off switch. When power is restored, the motor drives in the other direction.
Power supply unit can plug into a regular lamp type timer...not supplied.


Powerful DC motor can draw curtains up to 18KG with wheeled type runner tracks or 10 KG with a slider type track.   The motor/gearbox unit has been tested to lift 12 KG dead weight over 1metre.

Optional tracks are available.   If required, contact me for details.


Simply fit the controller to any vertical blind operated by ball or regular continuous loop cords...i.e. not rod/wand type.  Vertical blinds have two cords, usually a ball cord for louvre (slat) rotation and a regular draw cord for fully drawing the louvres to one end or centre draw to either end.

The controller may rotate the louvres of vertical blinds to any angle from full open to the closed position when using the remote control module with 'Momentary' selected.  Without the remote connected, the positioning is from full open to mid position to full closed.   Note that if the controller is fitted to a vertical blind mounted in a recess, the controller may touch the end louvre ......check dimensions given below.

The controller, when positioned for the draw cord, can operate the louvres fully open or closed longitudinally on blinds up to approximately 2 metres long.......also to any intermediate position.  Note that one controller is required for each function....i.e. one to draw the louvres and the other to rotate.


The controller can operate roller blinds up/down up to approximately 2 metre span by 2 metre drop.  Note that the when operating, the blind may foul the controller if it is mounted in a recess.  It may be possible to extend the ball chain to enable the controller to be fitted below the lower drop of the blind.  A ball joiner is supplied for this purpose.
The controller is not suitable for Roman type blinds.


The Controller can operate in the following ways:

1)  From your wall socket on/off switch.
2)  Automatically with the light sensor fitted thereby closing at dusk and opening at dawn.
3)  It can also operate with a regular lamp type 24 hour time clock (not supplied).
4)  Remote control operation....ideal for folks with restricted movement.

Supplied with all fixings....wall plugs/screws/self tapping screws for fixing to aluminium framework.

Compact controller...approximately 115mm (l) x 82mm (d) x 62mm (w).
Child Safety - Cord tensioned when controller fitted thereby eliminating strangulation risk
Safe 12V DC operation via the 240V AC to 12V DC power supply unit.
Power supply unit supplied with 3m cord.
Safety Cut Out...controller will not operate unless drive pulley guard is fitted in place.
Supplied with Full Fitting and Instruction Manual.
CE and RoHS accreditation.

100% satisfaction guaranteed....within one year of purchase, full refund with return shipping cost paid if not satisfied.
