KNX

 

KNX is a truly open protocol meaning that it is a vendor neutral solution. Products from many different manufacturers will all work together on a common KNX busline sharing commands and information.

 

KNX solutions can be used across an extremely wide range of building control and automation applications across all market segments including commercial and industrial. It is highly flexible and is typical for the system to be used for many different applications within one project. Such applications include:

 

 

The KNX Topology has no limit to the size and scale of the buildings in which it can be used. It is equally well suited to large scale commercial projects as to a residential building. KNX is extremely powerful when interfacing with other systems and protocols as there are many established gateways from a number of suppliers. These include OPC Servers, SCADA, BACnet, DALI and others.

 

KNX is regulated by the KNX Association based in Brussels and is supported by all of the world’s leading electrical manufacturers. The KNX Association manages all aspects of KNX including testing and certification standards and protocols used by manufacturers to ensure compatibility and interoperability. The KNX Association is also responsible for the management and development of the ETS software used by systems integrators to commission all KNX installations as well as developing and implementing standardised training programs which all systems integrators must undertake in order to commission KNX projects.
