How to wire an electric blind


Novice Member

I'm looking to purchase 4 remote controlled blackout roller blinds.

I'd like to have them connected to 4 switches in a single grid plate, so they match my light switches.


I'd like each switch to control a blinds individually (using a 3 position retractive switch - up/down/off).

I know that the motor used is basically a 2-core - 2 wires that would connect back to the appropriate control module to supply the voltage to drive the motor in one direction or the other:
  • A +24Vdc supply will result in the motor driving in direction 1 (i.e. blind open)
  • A -24Vdc supply will result in the motor driving in direction 2 (i.e. blind close)
  • Removing the voltage will stop the motor (i.e. stop the blind at a mid point between open and close)
Can you suggest the best way to wire this - I assume wired to a master controller that takes a mains feed and powers all the blinds or something similar?

Anyone who has seen a wiring diagram would be really appreciated!
