### EMS actuator for Slat angle

Hi everyone, I am trying to control the Slat angle based on the actuator available as per the application guide.

I am able to control shading type to blinds on or off, but I am not able to control the slat angle via actuator.

Sub Surface 1,           !- Actuated Component Unique Name
Slat Angle Control,  !- Actuated Component Type
Slat Angle;          !- Actuated Component Control Type


Sub Surface 1 is a window, I am unable to find the actuated component type for slat angle, as per the application guide slat angle can be controlled.

Any help appreciated.
