Title: Roller shade motors - Same speed in different sizes?
Post by: bryblind on August 08, 2018, 12:56:05 AM
I have some Rollease 1.5" tubes adjacent to 1" tubes.  If I mix and match motors, will they roll/unroll the shades at the same rate?

Thanks!

Hello, thanks for your interest.

The shade delpoyment speed is determined by several factors, such as motor design, tube diameter, and weight of shade. It is unlikely that your arrangement would result in the same speed of delployment, but you will be able to program the travel limits so that they always end up in the same place.

You can compare the speed of motor types in our cart, but please keep in mind the tube diameter also plays a signifigant role:

Did you actually experiment with this at all, Bryblind? I'd love to hear about your experiences.

Yes. The speeds are adjustable and I was able to get it close enough.
