The Somfy Ondeis Rain and Sun Sensor is a solar-powered combined rain and sun sensor compatible with Radio Technology Somfy® motorized exterior products, including awnings, rolling shutters and screens. The Sensor is completely wireless and uses optical rain-sensing technology to measure rainfall and sends an RTS command when rainfall exceeds the user-selected threshold. The Sensor also utilizes a sun-level sensor that sends an RTS command when sunlight exceeds the user-selected threshold.
Comfort & Convenience: Mode selector sets usage for an awning, exterior screen, or a rolling shutter. One sensor fits all! Extend or retract depending on the preference. For example, will extend rain proof screen to protect patio furniture or retract the awning to protect it from heavy rain. In sun sensor mode, the sreens will come down to provide shade, energy savings and UV protection.
Protects the awning: Heavy rain can cause damage. The rain sensor automatically retracts the awning based on the selected rain threshold.
Energy Savings: Energy cost reduction and automatic protection from damaging UV rays.
Optical Sun & Rain Sensor: Senses moisture from heavy fog to a downpour. Heavy rain can cause damage to an extended awning. Provides protection from the elements. Senses brightness levels from .5 klux to 50 klux.
Communication: Sends a signal to the motor regularly to ensure a maintained connection. The sensor operates even if the signal is lost, ensuring protection of the motorized application.
LED Indicators provide visual feedback of production funtions – Easy-to-see confirmations.
