Elero RolSolar – Living comfort and safety with the power of the sun

For house construction and renovation, ever greater attention is being paid to energy-saving concepts. At the same time, automation solutions in particular should be fully user-friendly and reliable. But what if there is no power connection or if power lines cannot or should not be run to the window (e.g. in an older building)? Baden-Württemberg-based drive and control manufacturer elero is launching the RolSolar M-868 DC drive system for precisely this purpose. It is powered by solar energy, representing a particularly practical solution for privacy and sun protection.


Innovative solar-powered roller shutter motor provides lasting shade

RolSolar is ideal for the complete motorisation of roller shutters and interior blinds without an electrical connection: Garden houses and garages in peripheral locations benefit from the innovative drive as well as architects and installers who want to offer their customers an ecological as well as efficient type of roller shutter automation. A plus in living comfort and safety, privacy protection on request and lower heating costs are the key advantages of such a solution. 

Practical product bundles for easy installation
The radio drive RolSolar 868, battery pack and solar panel are simply connected with the help of a pluggable cable, without the need for a connection to the mains or a control unit. The end positions are set directly via the radio transmitter. The autonomous drive system receives its 12 V power supply from a rechargeable battery pack with powerful NiMH batteries - a real guarantee for the system's long-lasting durability. The battery is charged by a solar panel, which is available in both screwed and glued versions. It is also possible to add another solar panel, an additional battery or a charger at any time. This may be advisable, for example, for systems that are north-facing. Since it is a low-voltage solution without a power connection, the fitter can install the drive system even if they do not have an electrical certification. For the industrial production of roller shutter elements, there is RolSolar D+ 868; the plug-&-play version of the drive recognizes the end positions automatically and saves them. 

High quality radio drive, easy control
RolSolar 868 includes electronic blind protection, soft start, soft stop and a silent soft brake. As a result, the drives are long-lasting and reliable, and the roller shutters are protected. Two intermediate positions can be freely defined. 
The intelligent radio drive can be operated via a handheld controller or wall transmitter, and can be easily integrated into the smart home solution Centero Home, which enables extremely user-friendly control via a smartphone or tablet. The system operates with bidirectional ProLine2 DC radio at 868 MHz, ensuring minimal standby consumption and a long service life. 
"There is a growing trend towards solar solutions. With RolSolar, we provide an efficient, market-driven product package. Specialist companies benefit from the short installation time and high demand from building owners," explains elero CEO Enzo Viola.

With RolSolar, the roller shutters and sun protection specialist elero rounds off its extensive range of innovative drive systems for outdoors and indoors with a sustainable practical component. In combination with the quiet RolMotion roller shutter drive from the Silent Motion range, the JA Comfort range for venetian blinds and external venetian blinds and the Centero Home smart home system, home and apartment owners can control all home automation components at the touch of a button and thus benefit from security and living comfort throughout the home.
