New Digital QMT motor sets a new standard of performance for customers, backed by a limited lifetime warranty
Crestron® announced today that its new Digital QMT Shade Motor(CSM-QMTDC-256-2) is now shipping. The first solution of its kind, it transforms home shading solutions with a brushless DC motor with solid-state control that is incredibly small, yet powerful enough for any job. The Digital QMT motor delivers energy-efficient and virtually silent performance for window shades of almost any size. Crestron is so confident in the reliability of the CSM-QMTDC-256, it comes backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
Brushless design. Big benefits.The Digital QMT motor is the first brushless motor design for shades, which translates into exceptional reliability, smoother operation, and ultra-quiet performance. It provides superior torque in a small package — a single motor is able to power a shade as narrow as 21 inches or as wide as 10 feet. Variable Speed Control (VSC) settings in 1/10th RPM increments offer an unprecedented level of precision. Plus it eliminates the carbon dust generated by motors utilizing brushes.
“This is a huge leap forward in technology that puts Crestron Shades in a class all by themselves,” said Charlie Derk, Shading Solutions Technology Manager at Crestron. “Our new digital motor ensures customers will only notice the beauty and convenience of their shades; not a whirring sound interrupting their dinner party, or shades stopping unevenly, or a motor failing because it is clogged with carbon dust. Customers will also enjoy the peace of mind that comes with our lifetime warranty.”
Seamless integrationThe Digital QMT motor integrates seamlessly into the complete Crestron home automation ecosystem, allowing homeowners to adjust their shades, lighting, audio, video, temperature, door locks, and more from any device they choose, including touch screens, iPad®, or their smartphone.
The perfect solution for small windowsCrestron will soon introduce new hardware for the Digital QMT motor to enable bracket-to-bracket widths as narrow as 17.25 inches, making it the only shade motor to fit in such slim windows.
