Buildings are increasingly intelligent. Ensuring that the rooms in buildings are perfect places to be, requires intelligent devices – like the new presence detectors WIDE, which combine five functions for a pleasant atmosphere and energy savings in the room. The new presence detectors with a wide detection range capture data on CO2, temperature, humidity and brightness and thus control not only the illumination systems but also ventilation and heating systems. This creates optimal ambient conditions in the space – for maximum comfort and the highest energy efficiency.
Apart from identifying true human presence, the True Presence® multisensor KNX from STEINEL also detects brightness, room temperature, humidity, air pressure, the concentration of volatile organic compounds (VOC) as well as the level of CO2 actually measured in a room. This means that besides saving energy, the focus is also on providing a good indoor climate. And, as a 360-degree multisensor, it can watch over up to 177 m² with absolute precision. Extending the range of KNX applications, True Presence® supports over 170 Group Objects. Combined and grouped together, they are already capable of delivering the information for digitalising the automation of tomorrow's intelligent building today.

Just as easy: commissioning by SMI Key ID via ETS or motor search/allocation by app. The smart SMI motors provide feedback on the position of the sun shading system and send any error messages.
Two-in-one in the Match-55 series: KNX RF / ENO push button 440 secure wireless push button for EnOcean and KNX RF in one device. Without configuration, the push button works in EnOcean or EnOcean Secure mode. Through configuration with ETS®, the push button switches to KNX RF mode with optional support of KNX Security. The push button is suitable for numerous switch ranges available on the market with an internal dimension of 55 mm. With a soft and quiet keystroke, it is available as a single and double rocker. The sister model KNX TP push button 420 secure offers a solution with integrated bus coupling unit for the KNX bus.
NV Embedded® sets the stage for the future of indoor climate control. With focus on IoT, BMS adaptability and flexible fieldbus communication, the solution presents new, unmatched features that will alleviate the obstacles that previously prevented building professionals from opting for automated natural ventilation. The system fits all building types, as the solution doesn’t require a specific fieldbus technology. It can use all open standards including KNX depending on the preferred level of BMS integration. As a result, the new NV Embedded® is both flexible and scalable. Furthermore, NV Embedded® benefits from an app and cloud solution allowing building administrators to access building data.
Universal dimming actuator (RLC, LED, CFL) for DIN rail (4.5u) with four channels for up to 210W@230VAC (160W@110VAC). It allows double-channel connection, up to 400W@230VAC (300W@110VAC) and quad-channel connection to control up to 750W@230VAC (600W@110VAC). Autoload type detection (RLC). Configurable dimming curves for LED and CFL. It allows manual control of its outputs thanks to the push buttons on the cover. It includes 10 independent logical functions. Error detection: short-circuit, voltage surge, overheating, anomalous frequency, supply voltage failure, parameterisation error.
ZF Friedrichshafen, TAPKO Technologies and Voltus are cooperating to offer a KNX RF S-Mode training kit as a perfect basis for KNX training centres to start with KNX RF. The partners have composed a basic kit (Voltus part number: 1692969), which consists of a KNX RF switch with programming adapter from ZF, compatible design parts and a KNX RF media coupler. A supporting extension kit (Voltus part number: 1692970) is offered which contains in addition to a KNX RF USB stick, also a KNX RF socket to enable the training of additional functions. Both sets are directly available from Voltus.
KNX Secure offers effective protection according to banking standards in smart homes or smart buildings. KNX devices are connected with a computer, central visualisation or other data processing devices via IP using the JUNG KNX IP interface. The KNX IP router can also be used as an area or line coupler. IP Secure encrypts the data communication in the IP network. Thus, communication to visualisation is safe. KNX Data Secure ensures that KNX telegrams selected independently of the medium are authenticated and encrypted. Thus, the communication between the sensor and actuator can neither be interpreted nor manipulated. In Switzerland, the JUNG IP interface and IP router are available exclusively from ZidaTech.
