S12 series

S12 from Becker: Awning meets KNX.

The SMI version of our premium sun protection drive. If you control your building using a KNX system and you want to integrate your awning or other sun protection products, the S12 sun protection drive is the best choice for you. Whether you’re using a top-quality cassette awning or the open articulated-arm awning: the S12 sun protection drive is able to operate various sun protection products as carefully as possible thanks to its programmed intelligence. It interacts with the various sensors for sun, wind and rain, while continually adapting its torque and stopping force according to the motto “as hard as necessary, as soft as possible”. This will allow you to enjoy your sun protection product and its drive for a long time. As well as traditional awnings, we also recommend the S12 for use in markisolettes, conservatory awnings, screens, volants and projection screens.
