Control Concept pureKNX4Hotel

If you want to install KNX panels in a control cabinet or a control panel, other requirements are needed than at smart homes or conference rooms - for example a robust aluminum front in IP65.


KNX Panels for Control Panels

TCI offers different 7- and 10-inch touch panels with integrated KNX visualization and IP65 front. They are suitable for the installation at a control cabinet or control panel. It can be used wherever robust industrial devices are sensible for the operation of KNX controlled building automation. 

This could be a control center of a gym, where the touch panel replaces a large number of buttons to control HVAC systems. Due to IP65 protection it can be also used at swimming pools, heating systems and other harsh environments.

The parameterization of the integrated pureKNX visualization is done directly at the native ETS dialog. For the creation of the surface the electrician needs to enter the structure of the KNX installation into ETS, create functions and connect them with group addresses. When loading the configuration onto the touch panel, the visualization and operation surface is created automatically. Neither plug-ins nor external engineering tools are required.

Since there are mobile apps for android and iOS, the visualization on the smartphone or tablet is identical with the same "look and feel".  Using the installed touch panel and the mobile device at the same time is possible as well. This ensures maximum flexibility.
