Position and angle of TapHome Blinds is based on timing. Micro-controller inside module that controls at least 2 digital outputs, calculates exactly how long the blind is going in up and down directions.
There are 2 types of blinds:
- Blinds (with angle)
- Slide (without angle)
- Open configuration of module with at least 2 digital outputs (All devices → DO12 / NTC2DI2DO2 / CORE14 / LED/OC)
- Enable Blind 1
Set its name, type and terminals for up and down direction
Blind 1 Enabled Name My Blind Type Blind Up DO4 Down DO5
- Hit Back button to store configuration
- In All devices, you can already see your new blind defined
Service settings of the blinds
Open detail of My Blind, hit Service Settings. Switch to Device tab.
Make sure, that you have correctly set up and down terminals. Check if blinds are moving up when you control them from the app.
Position of the blinds is calculated based on timing that is set in Duration section.
|Duration when level is changed from 100% to 0% / from 0% to 100%||60.000ms|
|Duration when angle is changed from 100% to 0% / from 0% to 100%||750ms|
|Delay when motor changes direction|
E.g. when motor was running in direction down, module will wait at least 200ms before powering the motor in direction up
|Duration until motor starts moving upwards / downwards|
Compensation of inertia of the motor.
Module forgets the calculated position of the blind after every power-loss. In the table below is the example scenario how the calibration works:
Real position of the blind
Postion of the blind calculated by the module
|Normal operation||e.g. 75%||e.g. 75%|
When blinds are moving, module controls switching of up and down terminals, and calculates position of the blind.
In our example, blind is at level 75% when power-loss occurs.
|Power loss||75%||0% (top)|
After power loss, module forgets the calculated position of the blind,
|Initialization of the module|
Calibration when module is initialized
Module holds the terminal for up direction turned on for 60s.
|After calibration, module returns to position stored in control unit||75%||75%|
Back to normal
|Start calibration when module is initialised|
When micro-controller inside the module is reset, e.g. by power loss, it loses information about position of the blinds.
|Calibrate automatically when blinds are sent to level 0% or 100%|
Each time when blind is sent to top or bottom, it will keep the output terminal turned on for 10% longer time, to make sure that blinds really hit the limit.
Slats angle adjustment and Sun orientation
These sections are used only when smart rule Blinds Adjustment According to Sun is used.
Once you setup all the attributes of one blind, you can duplicate them to another blinds.
- Open master blind, go to Device tab
- At the bottom, hit Duplicate properties
- Select devices on which you want to apply properties of the master
- Choose which sections should be duplicated
