The Nice Era Mat T family of tubular motors is designed to automate various types of sun awning: horizontal awnings with articulated arms, with and without box; vertical roller awnings, with and without box; canopy awnings, with and without mechanical blocks; fixed arm awnings and pergola awnings.

Which transmitters can I use to control Nice motors in the Era Mat T family to automate sun awnings?

Era Mat T motors can be managed by the Era P, Era W, Era MiniWay, Era P View, Era Touch, EraTime, NiceWay and TTX4 families of transmitters.

How can I associate the first transmitter with the Nice Era Mat T motor?

To associate the first transmitter with the Nice Era Mat T motor, follow the procedure shown in the video, or proceed as follows, respecting the sequence:

  • Power the motor and wait for it to perform 2 movements.
  • On the transmitter, select the channel you want to associate with the motor. If it is a single channel transmitter, go directly to the next step.
  • Press and hold the STOP key and wait for the motor to perform 3 movements, then release.

The transmitter has been correctly associated.

How many transmitters can I associate with a Nice Era Mat T motor?

A maximum of 30 transmitters can be memorised for each Nice Era Mat T motor.

What procedure should I follow to programme the upper and lower limit switches of the Nice Era Mat T motor?

The procedure to programme the positions of the limit switches of the Nice Era Mat T motor varies according to the characteristics of the application.

Manual adjustment is ideal for classic arm or vertical sun awnings.

Semi-automatic adjustment is ideal for sun awnings with box.

Automatic adjustment is ideal for sun awnings with mechanical opening and closing stops, such as pergola awnings.

What procedure should I follow to programme the limit switches of the Nice Era Mat T motor if it is installed in a sun awning without box?

For sun awnings without box, the limit switches must be adjusted manually. This manual procedure can also be used for all other types of sun awning.

To adjust the limit switches of the Nice Era Mat T motor manually, follow the procedure shown in the video, or proceed as follows.

Position the sun awning at the midpoint, using the transmitter memorised previously.

Initially, the motor might move in the opposite direction to the one indicated on the arrow key of the transmitter. The motor will not automatically associate the correct direction until both the upper and lower limit switches have been set.

To set the upper limit switch, proceed as follows, respecting the sequence:

  1. Press and hold the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW key on the transmitter until the awning is in the desired upper limit switch position, then release;
  2. Press and hold the STOP key and wait for the awning to perform two movements, then release;
  3. Press and hold the STOP key and wait for the awning to perform four movements, then release;
  4. Press and hold the UP ARROW key and wait for the awning to perform two movements, then release;
  5. Press and hold the STOP key and wait for the awning to perform three movements, then release.

To set the lower limit switch, proceed as follows, respecting the sequence:

  1. Press and hold the DOWN ARROW or UP ARROW key on the transmitter until the awning is in the desired lower limit switch position, then release;
  2. Press and hold the STOP key and wait for the awning to perform two movements, then release;
  3. Press and hold the STOP key and wait for the awning to perform four movements, then release;
  4. Press and hold the DOWN ARROW key and wait for the awning to perform two movements, then release;
  5. Press and hold the STOP key and wait for the awning to perform three movements, then release.

The upper and lower limit switches have been set correctly.

What procedure should I follow to programme the limit switches of the Nice Era Mat T motor if it is installed in a sun awning with box?

For sun awnings with box, semi-automatic adjustment of the limit switches is ideal.

Alternatively, the limit switches of the motor can be adjusted manually.

To adjust the limit switches of the Nice Era Mat T motor semi-automatically, follow the procedure shown in the video, or proceed as follows.

Position the sun awning at the midpoint, using the transmitter memorised previously.

Initially, the motor might move in the opposite direction to the one indicated on the arrow key of the transmitter. The motor will not automatically associate the correct direction until both the upper and lower limit switches have been set.

To set the upper limit switch, press and hold the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW key on the transmitter until the awning is completely wound and closes hermetically against the box. The motor recognises this position as the upper limit switch. Do not release the ARROW key until the terminal bar has struck the box.

To set the lower limit switch, proceed as follows, respecting the sequence:

  1. Press and hold the DOWN ARROW or UP ARROW key on the transmitter until the awning is in the desired lower limit switch position;
  2. Press and hold the STOP key and wait for the awning to perform two movements, then release;
  3. Press and hold the STOP key and wait for the awning to perform four movements, then release;
  4. Press and hold the DOWN ARROW key and wait for the awning to perform two movements, then release;
  5. Press and hold the STOP key and wait for the awning to perform three movements, then release.

The upper and lower limit switches have been set correctly.

What procedure should I follow to programme the limit switches of the Nice Era Mat T motor if it is installed in a sun awning with mechanical opening and closing stops?

Automatic adjustment of the limit switches is ideal for sun awnings with mechanical opening and closing stops, such as pergola awnings.

Alternatively, the limit switches of the motor can be adjusted manually.

To adjust the limit switches of the motor automatically, proceed as follows, respecting the sequence.

Position the sun awning at the midpoint, using the transmitter memorised previously.

Initially, the motor might move in the opposite direction to the one indicated on the arrow key of the transmitter. The motor will not automatically associate the correct direction until both the upper and lower limit switches have been set.

Press and hold the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW key on the transmitter and wait until the awning moves up until it automatically strikes the structure, then release. The motor recognises this position as the upper limit switch.

Press and hold the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW key and wait until the awning moves down until it automatically strikes the structure, then release. The motor recognises this position as the lower limit switch.

The upper and lower limit switches have been set correctly.

What should I do if the awning does not move upwards when I send a raising command?

The motor may not be responding to the raising command because the awning is near the upper limit switch position. If this is the case, move the awning downwards briefly, then try sending the raising command again.

What should I do if the awning stops during a movement when no STOP command has been sent?

If the awning stops during a movement without having received any STOP command, make sure there are no obstacles or mechanical obstructions.

If there are no obstacles, adjust the limit switches of the motor again.

What should I do if, when I send a command, the motor moves in the opposite direction from the one I want?

The motor will not automatically associate the correct direction until both the upper and lower limit switches have been set.

If the limit switches have already been set and the motor is still turning in the opposite direction to that indicated on the arrow key of the transmitter, delete the limit switch positions, then re-programme them using the correct procedure:

  • manual adjustment for classic arm or vertical sun awnings;
  • semi-automatic adjustment for sun awnings with box;
  • automatic adjustment for sun awnings with mechanical opening and closing stops, such as pergola awnings.

What should I do if, when I power the motor, it performs a number of movements?

If the motor performs a number of movements when powered, this means that programming has not been completed. Verify and complete programming of the first transmitter and the limit switch positions.

What should I do if the motor blocks and does not respond to any command?

The motor has a thermal protection device which intervenes and stops it from moving when the temperature reaches a critical level or is too high.

Wait for the temperature to return to within the working limits.

Also make sure the motor is correctly powered and configured.

What should I do if, when I release the transmitter key, the motor stops and does not complete the manoeuvre?

The motor moves in "hold-to-run" mode until both the limit switch positions have been programmed. You therefore need to adjust the upper and lower limit switches.

What should I do if I have lost or damaged the only transmitter memorised in the motor?

If you have lost or damaged the only transmitter memorised in the motor, buy a new Nice transmitter with ARROW and STOP keys.

Use the new transmitter to reset the radio receiver of the motor to the default configuration, then proceed to memorise the first transmitter.
