Cranbury, NJ August 2007 - Sonesse ™ 50 is the latest introduction to the Somfy ultra -quiet Sonesse™ motor family. The new motor is powered by 110V AC with a 2 in. diameter for larger type shades. Sonesse™ 50 is designed to motorize roller shades, roman shades, horizontal blinds, sheer horizontal shades, pleated and cellular shades and projection screens. The new motor range which received the WCMA Most Innovative Overall Design award is designed with all the Somfy quality components, but now features superior noise reduction technology.

A variety of control options, are available including Radio Technology Somfy ® (RTS) which allow for control of individual window coverings or groups of window coverings from the same transmitter.
