Full cassette folding arm motorised awning are the most common awning type on the market. Operated at the touch of a button via remote control or wireless switch, instead of manually operated via a gearbox and crank handle.The motor contains a built-in radio receiver and is functioned via either a handheld remote control or wire-free wall switch, with a typical range of 200m in open space or 20m through two reinforced concrete walls. When the transmitter sends a command to the full cassette retractable awning; open or close, the motor turns in the relevant direction at a consistent speed (normally 17 revolutions per minute) ensuring a smooth operation. The motor is limited to automatically stop at the fully extended or retracted positions, however, the full cassette awning can be stopped anywhere in-between the open and closed positions by pressing the stop button on the transmitter.
Furthermore, a range of sensors can be linked into the full cassette awning motor configuration, with the most common and recommended being a wind sun and rain sensor. As the name suggests a wind sensor detects the wind speed the awning is subjected to and retracts the awning in case of high winds, to reduce the chance of damage to both the awning and your property.
