CINEAK introduces innovative CIC automation module


Automate and control the DUAL motorized recline/incline mechanism AND articulating motorized headrest from a home automation-control system. The CIC module consists of a proprietary intelligent control box, which is mounted inside the CINEAK chair, and enables the use of the RS-485 protocol for communication between the motors and the control system using an accurate and reliable 2-wire single BUS connection between all the chairs and the control system. Each of the chairs can be controlled individually via BUS ID commands. Programming is done at the control system level. Adding an RS-485 to IP convertor allows the user to address each of the chairs and their operation via the IP protocol. Now, smart phones, mobile tablets, remote controls and touch panel devices will enable operation of the chairs!







The CIC Module and its technology allow for the following features:

All-off Reset Feature: at the press of a button, all of the chairs automatically return to their upright position
Pre-sets/Memory Settings: program a user’s preferred seating position and preferred headrest location- similar to a memory-setting in an automobile
Single Button Control: the push of a single button can reset the entire chair mechanism to its full upright or inclined/reclined position
Best in Theater Performance: enables the “money-seat” to be set to a preferred position- and all other chairs in the theater automatically recline/incline-creating the optimal visual and acoustical experience
Individual Control of Chairs: individual control over each of the chairs with the ability to operate them and assign presets
Visual Control: Control of the footrest, backrest, and articulating headrest from a graphical interface on a touch panel or tablet/phone device
And many other features…



An additional feature of the CIC automation module is the use of a more “intelligent” push button integrated in the armrest of the chair. This allows the user to have more intelligent controls such as memory settings, single button control, etc. at the push button level in the armrest. The new push button control also features “back-lit” buttons, allowing users to conveniently locate their control buttons in the darkness.

CINEAK products come with a wide-range of technology features which add luxury and comfort to a unique experience.

> Motorized Articulating Headrest
> Warm & Cool Ventilation

CINEAK’s ARTICULATING HEADREST
NOW AVAILABLE MOTORIZED!

The importance of an articulating headrest!
When seated in the reclined or inlined position while watching a movies, the key element to ultimate comfort is the ability to adjust the position of your headrest. The ability to do so, will allow for proper neck support while viewing an image on the screen no matter what recline position the back rest is in. The lack of such feature can result in back and neck pains and a miserable movie-watching experience.

Most of CINEAK’s theater seating products have this feature and now CINEAK offers this feature as a motorized option. That’s right! At the push of a button the headrest moves forwards/backwards and can be adjusted to your desired viewing position. The push button is available in black or silver.
