At KNX all devices are connected to a common bus line (2 wires) which will be installed parallel to the mains circuit. Each device is mainly able to communicate with all the others. When a sensor is activated, the actuator carries out the desired orders and acts. All functions can be frame-worked and extended constantly without damaging the building.
The KNX range from Schneider Electric offers:
- System components
- Binary inputs
- Movement detectors
- Environmental sensors
- Switch actuators
- Blind/switch actuators
- Dimming actuators/control units
- Control and display devices
- Room temperature control units
The idea behind KNX is as simple as it is ingenious. KNX combines all main building functions like lighting, heating, air-conditioning or shading into one intelligent system, which helps to lower operational costs resulting in considerable energy savings, to save installation time as well as to increase flexibility and adaptability to future developments.
KNX solutions from Schneider Electric address buildings as well as top-of-the-range residences :
- Office buildings
- Public buildings
- Shops and stores
- Luxury houses
KNX building control is one of the most effective options to reduce consumption and use energy efficiently. Particularly in office complexes, KNX proves its potential.
