Power Supply By Hunter Douglas

Today’s blog discusses hard wire options for Hunter Douglas Window Treatments. The entire PowerView collection is low voltage in its operation. So, we need to convert 110V power in your outlets to 18V power at the shades, blinds or shutters. The current offering from Hunter Douglas is the 16 Shade Power Supply.

This is a recent upgrade to the previous 8 Motor Power Supply, that is now discontinued. Some shades have more than one motor in them, like top down / bottom up shades, or very large Duette shades as an example. The new Power Supply is able to handle multiple motors in one shade. This means that with the old system, you could have an 8 motor supply, but only control 4 shades.

The new 16 shade power supply actually can accommodate 16 individual shades with the one box. Keep in mind that you can NOT daisy-chain with this system. Each shade requires a home-run for the wiring. If you don’t understand any of this, then that is a good thing. You will need to hire a licensed electrician to run the wires to your shades.
