Adjusting Limits on a Somfy RTS Motor

Introduction:

There may be occasions where you will need to adjust the upper and lower limits of a Somfy RTS motor. Most often, this is when you are first installing the treatment or when you’ve temporarily removed it from its location for cleaning and maintenance. This article will walk you through adjusting the limits of an RTS motor which is in User mode. For a walkthrough of how to set the limits on a factory-defaulted motor, see our articles “Resetting a Somfy 24VDC RTS Motor and Setting Limits in Program Mode” or “Resetting a Somfy 110VAC RTS Motor and Setting Limits in Program Mode,” depending on which type of motor you have.

 

Requirements:

  • Installed Somfy 12VDC, 24VDC, or 110VAC RTS Motor in User mode
  • Somfy Handheld Remote Control (i.e. Telis 1 or Telis 4)

 

Procedure:

*** IMPORTANT ***

If you have multiple Somfy RTS motors operating on the same channel you MUST power only one motor at a time when adjusting the limits.

 

To Change the Upper Limit:

  1. Press UP to send the window covering to its current upper limit.
  2. Press and hold both UP and DOWN simultaneously until the treatment jogs.
  3. Adjust to a new upper limit position.
  4. Press and hold MY/STOP until the treatment jogs to confirm the new limit is set.

 

To Change the Lower Limit:

  1. Press DOWN to send the window covering to its current lower limit.
  2. Press and hold both UP and DOWN simultaneously until the treatment jogs.
  3. Adjust to a new lower limit position.
  4. Press and hold MY/STOP until the treatment jogs to confirm the new limit is set.

 

Results:

The motor will now have new upper and lower limits. Press up or down to confirm that the treatment moves to the newly-set upper and lower limits.
