Heating and cooling using KNX: The Gira 6-gang heating actuator with integrated controller facilitates the integration of heating and cooling systems into intelligent building technology with KNX. The heating actuator controls up to six heating or cooling circuits in the building. 230 V or 24 V thermal valve drives can be used as drives. Integrated room temperature controllers in the heating actuator mean that separate room temperature controllers are not needed in the respective rooms. In short: where a Gira KNX touch sensor 3 Plus with room temperature controller was previously needed, the cheaper touch sensor 3 Komfort can now be used.
The dimmer with LED constant current can drive the LED directly, has four independent channels and two independent outputs. The output current of each channel can be set via the linked switch button and can produce 350 mA / 700 mA or 700 mA / 1 A. When the output current exceeds the rated current of the load, the load will probably burn out and cannot use a 700 mA output to drive 350 mA LED. In the case of a full load, if all LED are 350 mA, the dimmer can output eight fold, but if some LED are 700 mA or 1 A, it cannot output eight fold in certain configurations and the LED cannot reach the expected brightness value.

The KNX IR Linker from Viatron is a solution for combining infrared devices with the KNX bus system. The KNX IR Linker allows KNX devices such as switches, dimmers and blinds to be controlled via an infrared signal. In addition, the controlling of AV devices such as TV, blu-ray player etc. via the KNX bus system is also possible. All common infrared protocols are supported. Up to 22 switches, seven dimmers and seven blinds can be controlled and a total of 64 infrared signals can be emitted. The KNX IR Linker can be configured very easily and innovatively via the KNX bus system. Supported by KNbriX.
Alluring at first sight, the Eikon Tactil ranges make a smooth, bright glass surface come alive. And beneath this elegant material you will find the Vimar KNX transponder readers for installation outside rooms. These devices have two relays to control the door lock, a courtesy light, or for other uses. With two inputs for connecting On/Off electrical equipment (for example to control the switch for opening and closing the door, a magnetic contact for signalling windows are open or closed, ceiling pull alarm, etc.) they are supplied with a front panel with four LED, each one associated to an icon for signalling a state.
Adding the new WAREMA KNX multiple actuator to the surface-mounted housing allows between two and eight sun shading drives of 24 V DC voltage or 230 V AC voltage to be controlled independently of each other. The manual override operation and activation of the KNX programming button via Bluetooth and smartphone app are innovative and unique. Another advantage: easily replaceable miniature fuses provide the optimum line protection for the connected components, guaranteeing an extra level of safety. Standard commercial (venetian blind) push buttons can be connected via integrated binary inputs.
The KNX USB Stick 332 is a compact interface for the KNX bus. Like the new KNX USB interface 312 (DIN-rail mounted, 18 mm), the new stick supports the so-called KNX long frames. Longer telegrams speed up the download and are required for KNX security. The integrated LED show the connection status, telegram traffic as well as communication errors on the bus. The stick is compatible with the ETS® software (ETS3 or higher) and with numerous visualisations. The SDK kDrive is available for Windows and Linux to integrate the interface into its own programs. A module variant is also available for integration into the device.
The KNX ENO 626 secure and 636 secure by Weinzierl are the first KNX gateways on the market to support secure radio communication with EnOcean devices. Commissioning is very simple: encryption can be activated individually for each channel. EnOcean sensors and actuators which support security can be linked as usual. The expanded scope is also new with over 100 device profiles (EEP EnOcean equipment profiles) now supported. The model 626 has eight channels and is suitable for installation in a flush-mounting box. The KNX ENO 636 supports up to 32 channels and has a discreet housing for wall mounting.
With the combo multifunction switch actuator, Yonnet provides control for lighting, shutters/blinds, underfloor heating and on/off valve. The product ranges is from 4-gang up to 24-gang with six different sizes available (4-, 8-, 12-, 16-, 20- and 24-gang modules). Yonnet offers good quality, very competitive prices and strong support.
is again taking to the stage with a new product which drew attention at ISE Amsterdam on the KNX booth and at Frankfurt L+B. The last self-developed product from Yönnet is a KNX switch that outshines everything with its brilliant design and its functions. Iswitch has integrated light and temperature sensors in different button configurations, from one button to 12 buttons. There will be two models with and without VATN display. Iswitch offers perfect touch sensitivity, so the traditional customer who doesn’t like using touch keys will be more than satisfied. Besides, the unit is only 12 mm thick. Interra continues to work hard at full speed and will have new surprises soon.
IWAC Display is the Zennio access controller with display for hotels, which allows room access to guests through NFC or Bluetooth. Its design is printed on a high-strength tempered glass with exclusive customisation (images, icons, texts or logo) to give the desired aesthetic impression. The 2.4" backlit display shows the room number / name, an image or message when a guest is trying to access the room. IWAC Display allows each button to be selected to be used as a door bell, switch or any other action. Two outputs make it possible to open the door as well as the activation of other systems, such as the door bell. Two analogue / digital inputs are included.
Z35 is the new Zennio capacitive touch panel with a 3.5" display, internal temperature probe and thermostat for two independent areas. It is able to contain up to 42 controls / indicators, distributed over up to seven pages with a navigation menu. A screensaver with date, time and / or temperature is set when the touch panel is not in use, and the device wakes up automatically when the user approaches thanks to the proximity sensor. Its brightness is regulated by the included ambient luminosity sensor. In addition, it incorporates four analogue-digital inputs that may be configured as binary inputs, for sensors and potential-free push-buttons, as temperature probe inputs or as motion sensor inputs.
If you are looking for a price-optimised solution for single room regulation, then the KNX push button with room temperature sensor is the best choice. To measure the temperature in the living room, a feeler cable or an external temperature sensor can be attached to the KNX push-button at any time. Therefore the costs for expensive KNX room temperature sensors are dispensed with. If the temperature sensor is attached outside the KNX push button, the push button is also not influenced by the dissipated heat of the LEDs. The room temperature sensor can be mounted to save space on the wall and is programmed occurs via ETS. Contact: www.zidatech.ch
