Building control and automation...
…is a rapidly growing field, not only in commercial and industrial buildings but also in homes and residential developments. With applications ranging from managing the energy usage in a building to reduce carbon footprints, to offering a householder the ability to run their home from a smartphone or tablet, KNX is emerging as the dominant control protocol adopted by hundreds of manufacturers worldwide.
The KNX protocol was designed to encompass control of all major electrotechnical functions in the operation of buildings.
- Lighting, enabling features ranging from load and energy management to mood lighting and scenes control.
- Heating, Cooling and Ventilation, allowing fully zoned environmental control with resulting energy managment options.
- Windows, Shutters, Blinds and Curtains, facilitating passive heating and ventilation, automatic solar gain management and security benefits.
- Other electromechanical functions, such as motors for anything from an irrigation valve to a gate operator.
It is also able to fully integrate with other Building Management systems and can be used as the major field bus component of such a system.
