Abstract

See full text

A method of monitoring the operation of a partition movement system having a partition. In an embodiment, the method includes monitoring a parameter having a relation to movement of the partition, generating a first value based on the monitored parameter, and generating a difference value between the first value and a threshold value. The threshold value is indicative of a potential pinch condition. The method also includes determining a position value of the partition corresponding to a relative position of the partition when the difference value is generated, and using at least one of the difference value and the position value to determine a state of the partition movement system.
