IntelliFlex I/O
Scalable and Flexible Control Solution for Motorized Shades
Motorized FlexShade I/O AC

A complete control solution

Window shade automation should be elegant, simple, and scalable. IntelliFlex I/O is a complete control solution for motorized shades that is flexible and expandable to the size and complexity of a project.

Intelligent motors are connected to wall switches and other input devices through a wired network. This network allows communication between the devices and distributes power to them from the motors, eliminating the need for external power supplies.

System Overview

IntelliFlex I/O diagram

The backbone of IntelliFlex I/O is the Network Device Connector (NDC). An NDC connects to each system component, such as a shade motor, wall switch, or other interface. Power comes from shade motors, and is distributed through the network via the NDCs. Connect up to 120 devices and extend to 4000 feet in total with no further restrictions on connections between components.

Simple to purchase, install, and use

Quote all components in a single line item on DraperOnline, our online window shade ordering system. There is no need to remember component part numbers, or worry about compatibility between controls and motors.

Once installed, configuration is done from the devices themselves. Without a computer, you can copy and paste limits from one shade to another, or from one shade to the entire network. Visual displays make troubleshooting fast and easy.

I/O is highly customizable, and can grow and adapt as needs change without the need to replace existing hardware and wiring.
