You've seen how handy our window blind and shade systems are, now you can use the same safe, low voltage technology and MULTI-CHANNEL RADIO REMOTE CONTROLS to open and close your windows. These units use the same type of remote as our new G series shade and blind motors. Part of the RollerNode™ family of controllers, instructions for this 15 amp radio receiver actuator control are here.
It is simple to adapt this actuator unit to most types of windows and skylights because it does not need to rotate in any way like hinged units do. The flex link direct push drive has a 300mm stroke (~12"), the opening/closing force Max Push/Pull force before obstruction sensed is approximately 20 lbs (9 kg), current consumption is ~1.5 A, protection class is IP32. These units have been stress tested to over 3,000 openings.
If you are planning to use this for a skylight opener, note that you can check the force required to open the skylight by standing on a bathroom scale and pushing up on the skylight with a long broom handle or other suitable pole. If your skylight is heavier than the actuator capacity, you can offset the extra weight with gas shocks, torsion springs or external counterweights.
PLEASE NOTE: Window and skylight openers can be dangerous to children and adults as they normally have a considerable amount of force that is used to draw the window closed and provide security. There is more than enough force to crush fingers of small children and/or cause injury to adults, pets, or other animals. If you need to motorize a window, skylight or other object where there is a potential danger because the motor is within normal reach, you should consider taking steps to screen the window.

Sill Width: 50mm (2.0")
Sill Width including chain nose: 76mm (3")
Height: 34mm (1 3/8")
The linear chain actuator pushes straight out from the fixed housing which lines up unobtrusively with your window frame, fastened in place with mounting screws.
Includes actuator (WT12v-NR), a 12v radio receiver(DCG-3R-RFR), 5 Channel Remote (control 5 different opener groups), and a 12v AC/DC power supply.
Use it to control the motion of anything you want, including windows, greenhouse vents, skylights, etc. Powered by 12v DC, it works great with solar and 12v battery sytems too.
The stroke is also adjustable: 4" (100mm), 8" (200mm), 10" (250mm), 12" (300mm)
