spiral_logo.pngThe Spiral Pivot range of opening roofs and sun louvers have been designed to be automated by 120v Somfy Tubular motors.

wireless_technology.pngState–of-the-art technology is incorporated in the design and manufacture of the motors and automatic controls ensuring exceptional performance and reliability. All motors carry a five year warranty.

Two wiring options are available:

  1. Direct Wiring (DW)
  2. RTS Wireless Technology (RTS)

Note: Somfy motors are fully compatiable with modern "smart wire" and C Bus Systems

Direct Wiring (DW)

direct_wiring.jpgSomfy automated Spiral Pivot louvers can be installed using conventional Direct Wiring.

This is where motors, switches and controls (such as group controllers or rain sensors) are all direct wired in a normal manner.

RTS Wireless Technology (RTS)

RTS_wireless_technology.jpgAlso available is Somfy’s range of Inteo Wireless remote controllers, using RTS Technology that eliminates the need for additional wiring to switches and controls.

Wiring is limited to the supply of power to the motor via a receiver, except where an Altus RTS motor is used – here the installation is further simplified as the receiver is integrated within the Altus motor.
