solar-roller-shutters-1What Is SolarSmartTM?

SolarSmartTM has been developed by CW Products (Australia’s leading supplier of roller shutters and home automation products), and is the most advanced technology in solar powered roller shutter automation in Australia.

SolarSmartTM is a roller shutter automation system independent of mains power, that harnesses the suns energy through solar cells positioned on the shutter pelmet or near the shutter, which charges a battery system that in turn supplies power to a DC motor for automation. The SolarSmartTM system utilises the latest in sophisticated electronics to manage the charging of the advanced battery system and is controlled via a specialised wireless remote control transmitter. This all means an easier, more cost effective, environmental and efficient way to operate roller shutters, not to mention an easier way to install motorised roller shutters!

At CW Products we’re committed to making life easier for roller shutter users and protecting our Earth!

solar-roller-shutters-2Three Solar Panel Options

The SolarSmartTM solar panels are an aluminium framed amorphous type which have excellent power output even in cloudy conditions, but must be directly exposed to sunlight in normal sunny conditions. They also have a better power output than most solar panels when affected by heat. North, east and west facing orientations require 1 solar panel. South facing orientations require 2 solar panels for optimum performance. The solar panels are supplied with 2 brackets which allow the panels to be attached flat to the pelmet or wall, or to the required angle to ensure maximum power performance. With all solar panel installations, all wires must be protected from UV radiation and the weather with all drill holes well sealed.

Two Remote Control Options

The SolarSmartTM system incorporates the stylish Maxim Radio Transmitter and is available in both 1 Channel and 6 Channel options. Both transmitters are powered by a 3 Volt Lithium button battery.
