Fusion Line Voltage Motors

European-engineered and UL-approved, these motors have built-in limit switches, thermal-overload protection, and are encased in an aluminum tube for sound insulation. DFB modular switching accessories offer substantial savings on wiring and installation. Motorized Sol-R-Shades® can be configured with line or low voltage controls. A wide range of optional remote controls are available to provide convenient operation. The motorized system is perfect for shades being driven at a 15º angle and for shades mounted on an incline.

Features & Benefits

  • Only 1-1/2″ between abutting shades
  • Easy setting or changing of limits
  • Wired and/or wireless remotes
  • Compatible with G-Series and Belgian Shade Contract fabric lines
  • Available double-motor tensioning system
  • Available valance, ceiling pocket, and side channels (standard or custom finishes)

ST90 Motor

The DFB ST90 is a line voltage encoded programmable motor that operates via a data line. Each motor has two wires. One wire is plugged into an AC power source and the other is for data. A Cat 5 data line runs from motor to motor into a central control. The central control unit varies based on the scope of the project. Controls range from a single office, full floor, or an entire building solution. The system is scalable so you can add extra controls, shade options, or new areas after the project is installed.

Features & Benefits

  • Ultra-quiet 38 DB audibility
  • One motor lifts up to 6 shades
  • Streamlined programming
  • Compatibility with DFB’s Horizon
  • Keypads allow for multiple intermediate positions
  • Provides seamless integration
  • Available in wireless
  • Simplified wiring

ST70 Motor

The DFB ST70 is rated at 40 Dba and can integrate into AV or lighting via a dry contact closure or an isolated relay for basic operation. It’s available with a built-in wireless radio control receiver so all that is required is a J box at the motor location. The DFB ST70 is perfect for skylights and for shades mounted on an incline.

Features & Benefits

  • Cost Effective
  • Used with J boxes
  • Modern raise/lower keypads
  • Reliable wireless controls
  • One motor lifts up to 5 shades

Sol-R-Shade® Wireless Remote Control

A wireless radio frequency remote control system has a built-in receiver inside the line voltage motor. It can be controlled from a single handheld transmitter, a recessed wall remote that can operate single or grouped motors, or a four-channel transmitter that can operate up to four groups. DFB also offers a remote timer to automatically operate the shades that can be used in conjunction with the wall or handheld transmitters.
