Additional equipment


SOMMER Lock locking magnet

Magnet motor lock which mechanically blocks the motor in any position (even with ventilation function) up to an attack force of 300 kg, thereby improving the existing break-in protection.

# 1651V000



For recording temperature and air humidity in the garage. The carriage automatically opens the door a bit if necessary (e.g. when the air humidity is too high), ensuring perfect circulation. When the optimal value has been achieved, the door is closed, reducing the risk of mould formation.

# 10371



Used to expand the memory to 450 transmitter commands. During service, saved data can be easily adopted for a new carriage.

# 10373



Additional LED lighting for the roof control. It is switched in parallel with the lighting in the carriage and can be easily
switched on and off using the light function by means of a transmitter.

# 7041V000


SOMMER alarm/warning buzzer

Two functions in one product: The alarm buzzer recognises a break-in attempt and outputs a loud signal tone. The warning buzzer, on the other hand, outputs an acoustic signal during the closing process or when the slip door is open.

# 7043V000


SOMMER parking position laser

Gives optical assistance for perfectly positioning a vehicle in the garage. The laser is active during the opening process and the set light burning time.

# 10378


SOMMER relay

Additional relay for additional switching of a garage or courtyard light or another 230 V consumer.

# 7042V000



A passive infrared sensor detects invisible thermal radiation from moving bodies (people/animals etc.) and reacts. When you enter the garage, the lighting on the operator is automatically switched on (supplemental lighting/relay) so that you can move around safely.

# S10343-00001



Supplies energy to the operator for maximum 5 door cycles > in the event of a power failure.

# S10523-00001



Allows the connection of two corded pulse buttons for control of the door and one external lighting unit. The operating mode “Defined opening” and “Defined closing” is optional.

# S10807-00001

Output OC


Transfers the door status (open/closed) to Smart Home systems. Optionally, a further external lighting unit can be operated.

# S10854-00001



For easier and more convenient installation of the tension springs on sectional doors. It is no longer necessary to lift the door yourself, making installation of the door even easier and quicker.

The LIFTer is only available for specialist dealers.

# S10941-00001
