The new solar chain winder integrates Dynaveil’s knowledge of solar cells
and rechargeable batteries with Arens’ expertise in window actuators to deliver
a purpose-built solar actuator. Dynaveil technology’s proven track record for

The advanced design of Arens’ solar chain winders minimises power
consumption and optimises the charge rate, ensuring that it is always ready to
operate when required. The performance or reliability of the actuator is not

commercial and domestic applications.
Key features and benefits of Arens solar chain winders include no
cabling requirement, allowing installation to new and existing windows; single
cell technology recharging the battery to power the actuator; expected life of 7-10
years for rechargeable battery in the actuator; ability to charge the actuator
with any USB charger in rooms with low sunlight levels; window opening of 300mm
enabled, facilitating natural ventilation; and operation via a programmable
remote control, wall switch or Building Management System integration.
Arens’ new programmable remote control allows up to six channels of
windows to be operated with one or more actuators per channel from a single handset;
enables window actuators, and internal and external blinds to be operated from
a single handset; and offers the flexibility to operate a single actuator with
multiple remote controls.
Arens’ solar chain winder and programmable remote
