Motorization gives us the option of adjusting our window treatments with the click of a button throughout the day with programmed ease. Graber’s new cordless option – the Virtual Cord Control (VC) is the cornerstone of a new, advanced motorization technology. Developed by Springs Window Fashions, it is a modern version of a manually operated shade.


Product Detail

A motorized component is included for every automated shade with a range of preprogrammed functions that can be altered to suit your needs. Graber’s Virtual Cord is enabled (RF) and is very simple to operate. It has a new innovative protocol and an inbuilt antenna that gives it a sleek look. It can be fixed close to the shade being used, either on the window, adjacent wall or kept anywhere else in the room.

As the control button is integrated with the end cap coordinated to the head rail, SWF has introduced the Optional Control Single Channel Remote. With this option, the shade can be conveniently controlled from virtually anywhere in the home up to a distance of 65 feet. It can control a group of shades and the intermediate position of a shade, too. It has an UP button, DOWN button, and a MY button in the middle, to stop the shade at any intermediate position desired.

The VC is powered by an Integrated Battery case, using 8 AA Lithium batteries.  It is designed in such a way that it can be accommodated on the head rail of the shade, even if the depth of the window is shallow. It is attached to the shade prior to installation by using an extra bracket included in the head rail.

 The VC can also be powered by a Plug-in Transformer, which includes a 6’ power cord and an 8’ extension cable.

Motorized Cellular Shades can be operated smoothly and quietly and has all the components necessary for a VC Control. This allows for a simple installation and easy operation of the shade.

Incorporated on to the right of the head rail, this new thru shaft motor utilizes a unique communication protocol referred to as “iO” specifically designed for simplified programming and a reliable shade operation. It has a consistent speed even for larger widths like a 144” x 144”, narrow shades as in 16” x 144” and the tallest of heights.

The End Cap on the right side of the Headrail has a push button control. A programming function in it is necessary while setting up the shade. Should the Optional Control be misplaced, it can be used for operating the shade. The LED feedback that it provides makes operation and programming of the shade very simple. It is color coordinated with the Headrail.

The End Limit Safety Programming feature provided is used for reprogramming should it be necessary.

An Inside mount or Outside mount can be made without any obstructions. A shade provided with a VC control is not available in the BOTTOMUP/TOPDOWN feature, Speciality shapes or as a multiple shades on one rail.

The value of a motorized cellular shade is enhanced with a VC control. While the shade itself gives us the benefits of glare control, energy efficiency, and comfort by controlling the room temperature,   motorization eliminates the hazard of strangulation of kids and pets because of dangling cords, enables access to hard to reach window treatments and controls multiple shades at the same time.
