Somfy expands Sonesse™ quiet motor range with new 110V version

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. From a distance of 3 feet, Sonesse™ is barely heard, creating a peaceful environment for all to enjoy.
Sonesse™ 50 is consistent with the current Somfy 500 series platform and is ideal for larger size window covering applications. 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. And, the new motors are capable of adjusting to precise intermediate positions for increased control flexibility.
The Sonesse™ range is also easily integrated with automation systems and with simplified plug in wiring, simple to install. And, as with all Somfy products, the new Sonesse motors are backed by a 5 year warranty.
