Crestron is demonstrating at CEDIA Expo the new Digital QMT 3 Series shade motor (CSM-QMTDC-163-1), which expands its industry-first line of brushless motors with solid-state controls. The new motor features a smaller diameter than the 5 Series (CSM-QMTDC-256-2), enabling placement in narrower window jambs and shallower pockets. Crestron says it delivers tremendous torque with virtually silent operation, powering shades up to 8’ wide or as small as 17.5” wide. Both motors are available with Cresnet or wireless infiNET EX communications.
New shade hardware is also on display for 3 Series and 5 Series Digital QMT motors, in both the Décor and Architectural styles. This includes new adjustable brackets, pockets, and fascia for a full range of installations. Décor style brackets are now available for inside mount as well as outside mount. Architectural brackets are now available for dual-roll configurations. The System 3 bracket is designed to fit pockets as small as 3”x3” for a single roll; 5 Series brackets fit pockets as small as 5”x5”.
Also, Crestron is introducing more than 100 new fabrics, making the company’s total offering mover than 450 fabrics in a full range of styles and textures. The company has also added an exclusive line of textiles from designer Hartmann & Forbes.
