The motor control unit must be replaced in full, including the mains unit!

Electrical connections need to be made by an authorised electrician!
Electrical connection / wiring of AstroTec is identical to connection of PEZ control units.

 

Are spare parts also available for PEZ control devices (control panel, cover)?

PEZ-84, PEZ-85, PEZ-88-R, PEZ-88-RS, PEZ-90-R-RS, PEZ-95-R-RS-ASTRO, PEZ-R-RS-ASTRO

No. PEZ control devices were discontinued a few years ago and spare parts are no longer available. The successor is the AstroTec with integrated timer. The Astro function enables efficient opening and closing of hangings according to sunrise and sunset times.

How do I change the batteries on the PEZ?

Instructions on changing batteries on the PEZ can be found in the download area
Enter the product name in the search field and select "Archive".

What is the difference between tubular drives with electronic and mechanical limit switches?

On tubular drives with mechanical limit switches, shutdown in the hanging's upper and lower end position is via a micro switch in each case. The shutdown position for the relevant sense of rotation can be adjusted via a limit switch setting screw on the drive head.

For drives with an electronic limit switch unit, the shutdown points are adjusted via the connecting cable and stored. Depending on the type, these drives enable special movement strategies or hanging protection functions via this end switch unit.

Are sun/wind monitors still available as spare parts for the Sonneboy control units?

Sonneboy, Sonneboy 90, Sonneboy impuls

No. Sonneboy control devices and sensors were discontinued a few years ago and spare parts are no longer available. The cable-based light and twilight sensor Lumero is compatible with Sonneboy control units.

Evaluation of wind has been changed on the new control system. For this reason the Sonneboy/Sonneboy 90 control units are neither compatible with the new Aero and Ventero sensors nor the old sun/wind monitors with the new AeroTec.

Electrical connections need to be made by an authorised electrician! Electrical connection/wiring of AstroTec is identical to connection of Sonneboy control units.

 

Can the AstroTec / AstroTec-868 timer also be used as a sunblind?

Yes. The AstroTec / AstroTec-868 timer can be combined with the Lumo light sensor and control the roller shutter according to sunlight incidence.
  
 

How can I find a suitable drive for my installation situation?

With the drive calculation program by elero, you can find a suitable drive for your relevant installation situation in just a few clicks.
 
 

Can I upgrade my existing wireless roller shutter control unit to include a sun protection function?

Yes. You can upgrade your existing elero radio control units to include the Lumo-868. Using the battery-powered light, twilight and glass breakage sensor,  roller shutters are optimally controlled based on light values.
