IntelliFlex I/O is a scalable, flexible shade control; a new complete control solution for motorized shades from Draper. The window shade automation system is flexible and expandable to the size and complexity of a project. Intelligent motors are connected to wall switches and other input devices through a wired network. The network allows communication between the devices and distributes power to them from the motors, eliminating the need for external power supplies.
The backbone of IntelliFlex I/O is the Network Device Connector (NDC) which connects to each system component, such as a shade motor, wall switch, or another interface. Power comes from the motorized shade motors and is distributed through the network via the NDCs. You can connect up to 120 devices and extend the network to 4000 feet in total with no further restrictions on connections between components.
- Wall Switches
Intelligent low-voltage wall switches are available for single- and dual-zone use. Switches feature an in-wall user interface.
- Sensor/Schedule Interface
Up to 8 scheduled override events can be configured using onboard buttons and the LCD display. Allows up to 4 sensors to be added to an IntelliFlex® I/O network. Includes built-in support for brightness, wind and precipitation sensors as well as pyranometers.
- Contact Closure Interface
The Contact Closure Interface connects existing third-party controllers that require contact closures.
- A\V Gateway
The A\V Gateway supports serial, contact closure, low voltage, and IR interfaces.
- Wireless Network Gateway
For simple integration from a single receiving point, IntelliFlex® I/O Wireless Network Gateway offers wireless roller shade control on a wired network.
- Motor Limit Tool
The IntelliFlex® I/O Motor Limit Tool allows the end-user to copy and paste motor limits and preset stops easily to a network of motors.
- IR and RF remote controls
These are also available. The RF handheld remote provides control of roller shades from anywhere with a simple touch or swipe. The IR Remote features 3-button control for up, down, and stop directional functions.
I/O is highly customizable and can grow and adapt as needs change without the need to replace existing hardware and wiring, providing a scalable solution ideal for small to mid-size commercial projects. The I/O product page has more information.
