With Conventional electrical installations, you have to determine in advance how and where your buildings switching system will be installed, before construction even commences. But with KNX from Merten, you can keep options open. That’s because everything in the system can be changed or extended at any time without the usual mess and without laying new cables.
In addition, all building technology devices and installations are connected via a single bus line.
The bus line is laid in parallel to the 230 vac power supply. When you activate a sensor for eg a push button, an actuator will carry out all the switching commands required.
KNX is the only worldwide approved INTERNATIONAL STANDARD for home- and building control. It already met the requirements of both European standards CENELEC EN50090 as well as CEN EN 13321-1. Its recent approval as an international standard (ISO/IEC 14543-3) now confirms the global importance of the KNX standard.
As KNX provides specifications that are not only used for the automation of electrical installation equipment but also a. o. for HVAC applications, KNX Association proposed its specifications also to CEN for publication as a European standard for building automation control systems. CEN TC 247 accepted the proposal and the KNX specifications were published by CEN as EN 13321-1.
In Building Automation System, there are many factors to be taken into account like Flexibility, Comfort, Cost efficiency, safety and security. In terms of comfort, take the following example: getting cosy in the evening no longer means going from one switch or thermostat to the next. Instead, simply press a single button to activate all the desired functions in one go., blinds are lowered, atmosphere lighting is switched on and the room is heated to just the right temperature. Scenes such as these can be created exactly as you want them and you can do so via remote control, PDA, Touchscreen or PC.
