STArter S2 / STArter S2+


Sliding gate operator STArter S2 and STArter S2+

Intelligent sliding gate operators with impressive travel dynamics

The intelligent sliding gate operators in the STArter S2 range are the ideal operators for small to medium-sized sliding gates. Their intelligent control offers a wide range of connection options. In addition to convenient operation via radio control system, they can be integrated into the Smart Home systems SOMweb and Delta Dore. Sliding gate operator STArter S2+ provides an added advantage when it comes to gate weight, movement range and speed.

Integrate the STArter S2 sliding gate operator into the Delta Dore Smart Home system

Delta Dore

With the Delta Dore X3D module, you can integrate the sliding gate operators STArter S2 and STArter S2+ into the Delta Dore Smart Home system. The Tydom app from Delta Dore allows you to control and query the position of the sliding gate operator.

One control unit, a wide range of connection options

Photocells and other safety devices are automatically recognised by the control unit. LEDs on the inputs and outputs display the connection statuses visually. If required, the gate can be additionally secured on the outside and inside by integrating a second safety input.

Radio system SOMloq2

Bidirectional SOMloq2 radio control system from SOMMER

Secure encryption

The future-proof SOMloq2 radio control system offers maximum data protection against hackers thanks to 128-bit AES encryption with rolling code.

Repeating radio signal

The auto-repeat function ensures convenient opening while approaching the building. The output radio signal repeats in a certain cycle to permit optimal availability.

Feedback and gate position

The SOMloq2 bidirectional radio control system transmits radio signals in both directions. If the function is supported by the transmitter, the operator confirms receipt of commands or allows querying of the position of the sliding gate.

High radio range

An innovative hop function extends the range, as radio signals are forwarded from SOMloq2 receivers.

Also for existing SOMMER operators

Transmitters with the SOMloq2 radio control system are backward compatible with the Somloq Rollingcode radio system, making it possible to control existing operators and radio receivers.

Quick and easy installation

SOMlink service interface app on a smartphone

Intelligent control technology

In addition, features and parameters can be configured via smartphone, tablet or laptop with the SOMlink service interface for specialist retailers.

Horizontal control unit

The horizontally installed control unit guarantees easy access to the connections. All control elements are directly visible. For easier identification, the pluggable terminals are colour-coded.

FAQs

Where can I find the manual for the STArter S2 / STArter S2+?
Where can I find the design data for the STArter S2 / STArter S2+?
Can I control the STArter S2 / STArter S2+ from a smartphone?

With optional accessories, the intelligent sliding gate operators can be controlled from a smartphone, tablet or PC. In order to operate the STArter S2 or STArter S2+ via Smart Home, you need the SOMweb Smart Home solution or a Delta Dore X3D module.

If a SOMweb is installed, the sliding gate operator can be added in the app. With the Delta Dore X3D module, you can integrate the sliding gate operator into the existing Smart Home system from Delta Dore.

The operator only functions with a connected photocell.

Is the STArter S2 / STArter S2+ compatible with HomeLink?

With the optional HomeLink radio receiver module, the sliding gate operators STArter S2 and STArter S2+ are compatible with HomeLink.

Can I replace the predecessor model STArter with a STArter S2 / STArter S2+?

The predecessor models STArter and STArter+ can be simply replaced with a STArter S2 or STArter S2+. The mounting points, the pinion and the pinion height are identical to the predecessor model. You will need to replace the handheld transmitters if they are not compatible with the SOMloq2 radio system.
