Becker Awning Motors History
The history behind Becker Awning Motors begins in the small village of Sinn in Hessen, Germany in 1921. Two brothers, Emil & Adolf Becker established a mechanical and electrical workshop performing machining and milling work. Thanks to their creativeness and versatility, they entered into the drive business.
In 1968 they released their first tubular drive for the automation of roller shutters. Becker has continually developed and improved their range of drives and today produces a high quality and innovative range.
Becker is a reliable future orientated and internationally established brand in the automation industry. Proximity to the customer on the one hand, and the quality of all procedures, processes and products on the other are still the defining features of the company’s philosophy. The foundation of our business success.
Becker Awning Motors Australia
Becker Australia began in 2007, bringing all the ideals and philosophies of our German Head Office to the local market. Today, Becker Awning Motors Australia is one of the leading suppliers in the automation of sun protection in Australia.
Wireless Motors (R8/17 C PSF – L120/11 C PSF(+))
The radio controlled Becker Awning Motors are the most advanced motors in the range. Perfect for the renovation market where wiring to a switch can leave unsightly conduit or damage to walls and ceilings. Only 240v power is required to the point where the awning is mounted. The motor plugs into a standard GPO power point. The blind can then be operated by hand held or wall mounted remote controls!
Easily programmable intermediate positions are available to the consumer. This allows you, the consumer, to set your own favourite sun position which is remembered each time you would like the awning operated.
Wind Sensors, Motion Sensors, Sun & Wind Sensors and Timers can be used with these motors. The sensors all communicate wirelessly with the motor, further reducing wiring requirements. They can also be connected to a BMS (Building Management System), through Becker radio control relays.
Electronic Awnings Motors (R8/17 C PS – L1 20/11 C PS)
The electronic motors are a more advanced hard wired product. They offer automatic cloth length adjustment when the fabric stretches in the awning over time. This will ensure the awning closes completely each time; minimising fabric wear as well reducing the need for service calls to make this adjustment.
These motors, due to an inbuilt switching relay, can have multiple motors wired to a single switch. The end limits are simpler to program through either simple switch movement on the motor head or they can be programmed via an installation set.
Wind Sensors, Sun & Wind Sensors and Timers can be used with these motors. They can also be connected to a BMS (Building Management System).
The Standard Remote Controls for Awnings and Retracta Roofs (Hand Held)
- EC541A-II: For individual operation of a single awning. Can also operate multiple awnings as a group.
- EC545A-II: For individual operation of up to five awnings. There is also a designated group channel for group operation of the five individual channels.
- EC5410A-II: For individual operation of up to ten awnings. There are also two sub group channels (channel 1 – 5 and channels 6 – 10) for operation of the two sub groups.
There is a further group channel which allows operation of all ten individual awnings as a group.
The Standard Awnings Remote Controls for Awnings and Retracta Roofs (Wall Mounted)
If you are concerned about misplacing the hand held remote, Becker offers these options:
- Single channel EC311A: For individual operation of a single awning, or multiple awnings as a group only.
- Five Channel EC315A: For individual operation of up to five awnings. There is also a designated group channel for group operation of the five individual channels.
- as a wall mounted option.
Hard Wired Switching
- EC52: The most basic form of switching is a hard wired three position switch. Offering UP, DOWN & STOP functions in either a fixed or momentary mode.
Power is required to the switch as well as wiring from the motor down to where the switch is located.
Remote Controls for Wind or Sun & Wind Sensors
- SWC241A-II (Wind or Motion Sensor Remote): For individual operation of a single awning when used with a motion sensor or wind sensor. Adjustment of the sensitivity of the sensor is done through an adjustment dial on the back of the remote control. Can also be used to operate multiple awnings as a group.
- SWC441A-II (Sun & Wind Remote): For individual operation of a single awning when used with a sun and wind sensor. Adjustment of the sensitivity of the sun and the wind sensor is done through adjustment dials on the back of the remote control. There is also a sliding switch that can be used to turn OFF the sun sensor should this function not be required. It can also be used to operate multiple awnings as a group.
- SWC411A-II (Wall Mounted Sun & Wind Remote): A battery powered radio controlled wall mounted switch for individual operation of a single awning when used with a sun and wind sensor. Adjustment of the sensitivity of the sun and the wind sensor is done through adjustment dials on the front of the switch. There is also a sliding switch that can be used to turn OFF the sun sensor should this function not be required. It can also be used to operate multiple awnings as a group.
- SWC545A-II (5 Channel Sun & Wind Remote): For individual operation of up to five awnings when using either a motion, wind or Sun and Wind Sensor. There is also a designated group channel for group operation of the five individual channels. Remote comes with simple LCD display allowing preset times to be set for the automatic operation of the awning. Adjustment of the sensitivity of the motion, wind or sun sensor is easily adjusted from with a menu in the remote control.
Wind Sensors for Awnings
Wind sensors will offer protection for your external awning from damaging winds should it have been inadvertently left out. It is mounted on the façade above your awning and measures the conditions of the day. The wind speed you would like the sensor to activate the awnings to retract is set through the remote control or wall switch. Once the wind sensor activates the awnings to retract, the awnings are disabled whilst the wind remains above the preset threshold.
This is available as a remote control version, 240V powered (SC711A) or as a hard wired version (SC71).
Motion sensors are designed to offer protection for your Folding Arm Awning against damaging winds should it be left out. The motion sensor is mounted on the front bar of the awning & measures the movement of the awning. Once the movement of the awning becomes too aggressive the sensor will retract the awning.
The sensor also offers a second function, inclination. This is primarily used when the awning comes straight out and doesn’t allow water to run off it. Once the inclination function is activated the sensor will measure the angle the awning is on. Once the angle changes by a preset level, the sensor will retract, preventing dangerous levels of water pooling in the awning.
This is only available as a remote control version (SC211A). It is powered by two AAA batteries that should be replaced every twelve months.
Sun & Wind Sensors
This is a combined sensor that measures both level of sun as well as the level of wind. This type of sensor offers you the ultimate in automation allowing protection of furniture, reducing heating costs in your home and protecting your awning from damage. The sun sensor is designed to bring the awning out when the sun is starting to hit the windows of your home, then will take them back as the sun goes down. The wind sensor is also there to offer protection to your awning should the winds become too strong.
It is available in two versions by remote control. 240v Powered (SC811A) or Solar Powered (SC861A) or as a hard wired product (SWC52).
Awning Rain Sensor
Should you be concerned about rain damaging your awning then a rain sensor can be fitted to retract the awning should it have been left out when it starts to rain.
