The SOMMER base+ garage door operator features our most advanced garage door control unit with various optimised speed profiles and the option of precision setting of the operating forces. The garage door operator also learns continuously and automatically and adjusts the door operation accordingly.
What makes our operators so powerful is the ingenious technology. Our motors are not statically fixed to one point; they travel along a stationary, tensioned chain. This ensures optimal application of force with maximum safety at all times.
Intelligent control technology The system continuously reads in the required force and adapts it to the external conditions, thus providing the highest level of safety.
Certified quality Our garage door operators are tested and certified according to the strictest guidelines. You can be assured that our products are of the highest "Made in Germany" quality. More than 5,000 door-operator combinations with SOMMER garage door operators and doors from well-known manufacturers are certified. You can find the current reference list under Certifications
LED lighting The LED lighting integrated into the motor carriage is equipped with six individual LEDs, ensuring optimum lighting in the garage.
Numerous expansions The modular system structure makes it possible to expand the garage door operators with countless accessories.
Restriction of closing forces The system monitors the closing forces in accordance with EN 12453 via electronic motor monitoring. This control mechanism provides maximum safety.
Emergency release Thanks to the integrated emergency release system, the motor carriage can be engaged and disengaged in any position. This makes it possible to open the garage even in the event of a power failure.
Environmental and cost efficiency In power-saving mode, these energy-saving operators have a power consumption of lees than one watt. This not only makes then inexpensive to operate, but also extremely environmentally-friendly.
Safety thanks to encrypted radio control system SOMloq2 Thanks to the bidirectional SOMloq2 radio control system, the operators can be controlled conveniently via radio. The 128-bit AES encryption with Rollingcode provides maximum protection of data against hackers.
Universal use with various door types Our operators are suitable for sectional doors, overhead doors, up-and-over doors, one piece doors, side-opening sectional doors and side-opening doors. The SOMMER pro+
is also suitable for use on hinged double doors.
Emergency power supply in the event of a power failure During a power failure, the operator can be run in emergency mode with our optional Accu, meaning that your door will never fail.
Smooth-running and long-lasting Thanks to the gear-saving technology, the garage door operator is extremely quiet, low-wear and has a very long lifetime.
Our garage door operators are tested and certified according to the strictest guidelines. Experience over more than 40 years ensures that our products are of the highest quality and naturally Made in Germany.

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.
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.
Used to expand the memory to 450 transmitter commands. During service, saved data can be easily adopted for a new carriage.
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.
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.
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.
Additional relay for additional switching of a garage or courtyard light or another 230 V consumer.
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.
Supplies energy to the operator for maximum 5 door cycles > in the event of a power failure.
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.
Transfers the door status (open/closed) to Smart Home systems. Optionally, a further external lighting unit can be operated.
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.
The "Type-tested" certification represents a voluntary commitment to added security above and beyond the CE conformity test.
