Schüco TipTronic - comfort at the touch of a button
A feature on your car that you have come to know and love, namely electrically operated windows and central locking
is now also available for your windows at home: Schüco TipTronic is the first automatic, locking window system that can also be connected to an automated building system.
Schüco TipTronic offers sensor-controlled opening and shutting of windows. This helps save on energy because this sensor control prevents rooms from getting too cold. The sensor also provides for fresh air once the existing air has got stale.
From a technical perspective, Schüco TipTronic is particularly impressive with regard to its real-time responsiveness, with locking and unlocking requiring less than one second. All the safety features required today for automatic windows come as standard with the system, for example, anti-finger-trap protection, emergency release in the event of a power failure, and priority for safety commands over standard commands. The lock monitoring offers increased protection against burglars.
With its advanced design and technical features, this fitting is the ideal solution for high-quality residential construction. Inaccessible windows such as hard-to-reach toplights and windows in residential homes for the elderly or disabled are also important fields of application for Schüco TipTronic. Schüco TipTronic is available for turn/tilt and bottom-hung windows.
Until now, automatic window control has tended to be a trademark feature of modern office complexes. Yet demand for automatic opening and locking of windows is now also increasing in the luxury home sector. A central feature of Schüco TipTronic is the mechatronic fitting for windows which is key to the automation of buildings. Schüco TipTronic is the first fully mechatronic turn/tilt fitting and combines intuitive operation in real time with automated building technology, making your windows a component of an intelligent building. Schüco TipTronic is also easy and convenient to operarate, whether manually or via PC, time-controlled or sensor-controlled. Hard-to-reach windows are also easy to operate.
Schüco TipTronic goes beyond the limits of existing mechanical fittings technology because it was developed as a mechatronic solution specifically for electric window operation. All the component parts of the mechatronic fitting are fully concealed and so do not interrupt the clean lines of the window. One thing is certain: through their excellent functionality and modern appearance, Schüco TipTronic windows increase the value of your real estate.
To accompany the changed functionality and design, Schüco has combined the fitting with a newly developed handle design, which enables the window to operated simply and intuitively. Two buttons control the tilt function, while the turn function is controlled - as with a conventional window - by turning the handle. Optional extras include illuminated handles and status indication via integrated LEDs.
As well as operating an individual window, the new generation of fittings will, of course, allow units to be grouped together or connected to building management technology (e.g. EIB, Ethernet/TCP/IP). When incorporated with numerous different networks, a window handle may not be needed at all.
