The OZRoll Drive System E-Series for Roller Window Shutters
Battery-powered remote control
A battery powered, remote operating system is a cost-effective, easy-to-use and extremely safe means of operating your roller shutters and at Direct Shutters, we use and recommend the OZRoll Drive System E-series.
OZRoll Drive System (ODS) E-series
The OZRoll Drive System (ODS) E-series is a battery-powered remote operating system that gives you complete control over your roller shutters at the click of a button. It is a low-voltage, battery operated system that does not run on mains power, nor does it require the services of an electrician to be installed. A battery powered operating system also means that there are no unsightly tapes or winders inside your home.
The system works via an E-port controller, a small and unobtrusive rechargeable power pack that operates the shutters from a plate attached to the wall alongside each shutter. When the E-port controller is sitting in the wall plate, the shutter can be opened and closed easily and simply by clicking a button. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery enables you to open and close your shutters about 30-40 times before it requires recharging.
Recharging too is a very simple process. An indicator light tells you when recharging is required (although the unit will still continue to operate for some time after the light first comes on), and then you simply remove the E-port controller from the wall plate and recharge it using any power socket, just as you would a mobile phone or laptop (the charger is of course supplied).
Alternatively, the E-port is also available with an E-trans RF (radio frequency) option, so that more than one shutter can be operated from a single unit. The E-trans RF remote unit itself is powered by a long-life battery that does not require recharging.
Using the ODS E-series is simple and the programming options are user-friendly, making the shutters easy to operate by every member of the family. The shutters can be stopped or started in any position, giving you the same sort of control as you would have with a manual system.
Multiple shutter operation
Multiple shutters can be operated using one E-port controller, and so upfront installation costs can be reduced, but further power packs can be added if and when required. The OZRoll E-series operating system can also be fitted easily to existing shutters without the need to remove them, so making the switch is simple and straightforward.
Independent of mains power
Another advantage is that as the E-series ODS operates independently of mains power, in an emergency it is not subject to power cuts or failures, meaning that you are always in control, regardless of the circumstances.
