1. News from KNX Standard

News from KNX Standard

Recently the TC 247 of the European Committee for Standardization CEN, dealing with Building Automation, positively voted on an updated version of the EN 13321 series, i.e. on

  • Part 1, which references the EN 50090 standard series, which in turn document the KNX physical media and the KNX protocol as a European standard;
  • Part 2, which includes the description of the KNXnet/IP protocol and has in this way been brought up to date with the latest developments as documented in Part 3/8 of the KNX Standard.

This again underlines KNX’ continuous effort to document its technology as an open and internationally standardized solution for home and building control. 

In the most recent KNX Technical Board voting cycle an update of the KNX Application specific Extension for mapping M-Bus on KNX was included, thus bringing the KNX standard in line with the newest evolutions in international standardization, more specifically the EN 13757 standard series. Together with this, an update of Volume 7/60/1 ‘Metering M-Bus Data collector’ was voted, which now also includes functional blocks to map electricity and gas meters in a data collector with KNX connection.
