Retractable roofs’ motor:
The motors used in retractable roofs are of tubular (cylindrical) type. These motors have specific features which makes them very suitable for retractable roof’s mobile mechanism:
- long lifetime and high performance
- wide range of different engine powers
- its body’s specific volume and geometry accordingly lower occupancy
- very low noise
- equipped with delicate and accurate micro switches
- equipped with powerful gearboxes
- producing smooth and steady movement
- equipped with temperature protective sensor inside the motor
These motors, due to tubular motor’s special functions (awnings, parking’s gate, all
kinds of retractable roofs, etc), are so designed that the time needed for motor’s operation be at most 4 minutes.
Considering specific functions of tubular motors one notices that these motors are used repeatedly.
In these kinds of motors electromagnetic coil is steeped in a tubular case so that air can’t reach it. By excluding this possibility, i.e. loss of air, and devising a temperature protective element, motor wouldn’t break down anymore. The protective element inside tubular motor operates so that if electromagnetic coil’s temperature reaches to 160 °C, this protective element cut the electricity off and pause the tubular motor’s operation. By falling temperature down to rated limit (20 to 30 minutes), motor can be used again. These motors are designed according to this fact that they don’t move much while being used and are not used frequently.
Technical features of tubular motors:
- Power source: single-phase electric power
- Power input type: urban electricity 50 Hz- 220 V
- Operating time: 4 min
- Torque: 20 to 500 N/m
- Optimum temperature of environment: -12 to +50 °C
- Internal temperature: ۱۶۰ °C
- Electric power: 130 to 250 Watt
Hereof, Saye-Roshan Co has leaned on the experience and potency of biggest tubular producer companies in the world: Somfy of France and Dooya of China (belonging to Somfy).
Somfy of France (www.somfy.com) is the inventor and designer of tubular motors in the world. This company guarantee its tubular motors for 5 years; Saye-Roshan company as the representative of Somfy presents same guarantee for its textile retractable roof’s costumers.
