DAYTON, NJ-- Somfy Systems, Inc., the world's largest manufacturer of tubular motors for interior and exterior window coverings, is proud to unveil the Somfy Digital Network (SDN) 2.0 family of support products, a powerful solution for building management. SDN 2.0 products solve common design challenges by simplifying system troubleshooting, enhancing connectivity options, reducing common installation headaches and delivering more efficient ways to distribute power and data.


"SDN 2.0 is an example of Somfy's constant drive for innovation," said Tom Murphy, Chief Operating Officer of Somfy North America. "SDN 2.0 builds a cohesive system by increasing power and connectivity, while streamlining installation and planning for the design and integration community."

With this update, SDN 2.0 improves power and data distribution over the automated shading digital network and addresses common design and installation challenges. These updates also expand distance limitations, providing easier installation and control.

All SDN 2.0 devices feature automatic end-of-line termination, as well as built-in mis-wire protection. LED indicators provide the real-time status of power and data connections, ensuring everything operates smoothly. These control and safety features prevent design or installation mistakes which could damage the system, while making it easier to design, install and support.

Somfy's SDN 2.0 Certified Quality Promise ensures all products have met the highest quality standards for SDN communication and distribution by Somfy engineers. Systems built with SDN 2.0 certified products and installed by a trained professional are more reliable and better performing.

"SDN 2.0 solves challenges and expands possibilities," Murphy said. "With simplified connectivity between digital components, SDN 2.0 improves as much as it innovates."
