General information about

HAUTAU drives

comfort drive techology
The term “comfort drive“ serves as a heading for a collection of functions and / or technologies in drives.

Integration of HAUTAU network capability
networking several drives with one another, formation of synchronous drive sets for several drives at one window, possibilities of setting with the HAUTAU ConfigTool, reading out of operating conditions with the HAUTAU Config-Tool

Integration of self-detection
factory settings as a “single” drive, thus immediately usable, synchronous drive sets are detected automatically, automatic detection of associated lockings, no software or ConfigTool required

Quiet operating noise
quiet, particularly at low speeds

Integration of electronic control
constant speed at different loads, ability to preset other speeds


Integration of a synchronous operation
direct coupling of several drives at a window, no additional modules required (synchronous or tandem module), monitoring of the drives on the network function

Configuration via mobile device
configuration and operation by means of smartphone / tablet, wireless transmission via WLAN, the application(app) HAUTAU ConfigTool for all products with, HAUTAU bus interface

HAUTAU drives are available for use in 24 V DC (direct voltage) and 230 V AC (alternating voltage) systems. By default, they are controlled by reversing the polarity of the 24 V DC drive voltage or by activating the respective line conductor (phase) for an opening or closing operation. Thanks to their HAUTAU interface, the drives also offer a control option for WLAN and LAN (IP) solutions via a HAUTAU bus line.

Overload cut-offs
All HAUTAU drives are equipped with overload cut-offs or limit switches that will reliably switch off the drives after completing a retracting or extending operation. While travelling, the drive consumes a current. This current is specified as a rated current [A] in consideration of the maximum force [N]. Drives fitted with built-in overload cut-offs are switched off based on an internal current measurement. This cut-off value is greater than the rated current. The internal electric motor housed inside a drive effects increased current consumption on account of the physical property associated with the starting torque. Starting and cut-off currents must be taken into account when using customer-provided power supplies and switching actuators (relays or bus actuators).

Multiple interconnection
Depending on the drive type used, the drives can be interconnected to allow for synchronous operation on one window. Multiple drives may be requested if a single drive alone cannot generate the necessary force, if greater torsional stiffness is required or several sealing points are needed.

  Gleichauf Synchronisation „Gleichlauf“
  Tandem sequence control Synchronisation Synchronous run
Benefits Affordable solution offering the option to activate a locking. External synchronisation modules make it possible to reliably operate 4 drives with stroke lengths of up to 1,000 mm. Thanks to the integrated solution for synchronous operation at varying loads, it is possible to directly interconnect 4 drives – also in combination with lockings.
Note Since not offering synchronous run or synchronisation, a tandem sequence control is only suitable for short stroke lengths on glass windows. Can only be used in combination with spindle drives. Can only be used in combination with HAUTAU drives and lockings equipped with comfort drive technology.
