Dear partner, the worst phase of the pandemic in Europe is now thankfully behind us. We will all do our best to ensure there are no further waves of infection. Thanks to the huge commitment of our staff and the best efforts of our suppliers, we were able to continue production without interruption and to guarantee a more or less regular process across the logistics chain. Despite this, we were sadly unable to avoid additional delays over the last few weeks and wish to apologise for this. We are committed to ensuring that, from now on, you will experience the normal Sontex again.
To date, we have had no diagnosed corona virus cases within the company and are happy that the safety and health measures taken contributed to this. The measures continue to be implemented in the factory until further notice. At the beginning of June, all staff who were still working partly from home will return to the factory for the most part and will be able to work as a team on new products and services.
We would like to thank all our partners for their patience and their great support during these difficult and challenging times. We look forward to meeting you in person again soon. And soon we will hopefully be able to enjoy a good meal together again.
Stay healthy! See you soon!
Olivier Carnal. CEO Patrick Grichting, CMO
The Corona virus pandemic is affecting us across all areas of life, starting with our own health – in family life, at work and not least in our leisure time. This requires patience, mutual understanding and time.
According to information from the Swiss government, we too have taken important precautions with regard to the Corona virus (SARS-CoV-2), primarily to protect the health of our employees, customers, suppliers and partners.
Due to the current situation throughout Europe and the situation which is changing hourly, it is difficult at the moment to predict what changes will occur in the coming days for us and our customers. We are committed to maintaining our operations and delivering on our promises to customers. However, these events are not without consequences. Our suppliers are currently experiencing the same situation as we are and are having difficulty meeting our needs. Many of our employees are in the process of organising their personal and family situations while others belong to risk groups and are temporarily unable to work at the company. It is therefore inevitable that longer delivery times will occur.
We stay in close contact with our customers and partners in order to focus the remaining resources on the essentials and to satisfy all your requirements as much as possible. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for your constructive cooperation.
Although we are forced to slightly reduce our production volume, we will do our utmost to continue to provide you with the best possible service.

Dear partners and visitors

Your Sontex ISH-Team
ISH in Frankfurt more than two months, though we would like to sincerely thank you for your visit at our booth and the confidence placed in our products.

According to statistics most fires start during the night and asphyxiation by smoke is one of the main causes of death.
The radio modules Supercom 323 and 327, developed in partnership with Ei Electronics and approved by the KRIWAN Test Centre, allow remote inspection of the EI650FA smoke detector. A periodic remote reading of the smoke detector enables to check, in real time, the functioning of the sounder and the battery. In the event of a malfunction it is possible to react quickly and thus ensure the safety and well-being of the tenants.
For more information about the radio modules Supercom 323 and 327 please see Communication Modules.

On the 13th of June 2017 the RED (Radio Equipment Directive) 2014/53/EU will definitely replace the past R&TTE 1999/5/EC. In addition to a stronger harmonisation, it is the target of this directive to assure that radio communication is done in an effective and efficient manner while avoiding unnecessary disturbances. Our products have been tested and the documentation has been adapted accordingly in order to comply with the new directive.
Do you want to know if your heat pump is working efficiently and possibly take advantage of government incentive programmes? A special version of the heat meter Superstatic is now available to measure the efficiency and performance of heat pumps: the Superstatic 470 SPF heat pump meter.
Sontex introduces its new radio modules Supercom 587 at ISH 2017 in Frankfurt. It allows the readout of consumption data of various Wherle Modularis water meters via Wireless M-Bus according to OMS. As for all other radio modules it can be retrofitted at a later stage without impairing the calibration.
