pureKNX - Touch Panel for ETS-Programmers

The advantages of tci-touch panels with 7, 10 or 16 inches will give you a simple introduction to building technology:

  • for ETS-programmers
  • parameterized in native ETS dialog,
    no plug-in
  • only 1x programming - multiple using: 
    - load the app to your smartphone 
    - smartphone will automatically find the pureKNX
    - ready for immediate use
  • Wi-Fi and internet
  • optional with door communication

Control Concept easy smart home

Complicated is a thing of the past. With the totally new control concept easy smart home, the smart home can be controlled simply and intuitively.

 

  • A unique combination of switch and menu navigation
  • Can be individually adapted to people and life situations
  • Frequently-used functions are directly available
  • Can be integrated into existing KNX installations

This enables simple interaction between KNX components such as switches, motion or presence detectors. Whether for families, the elderly, children or public facilities, with easy smart home, you can implement individual operator control concepts in the twinkling of an eye.

Selectable Functions

with one button (e.g. light)
2-Fach pureKNX
with two buttons (e.g. light & shutter)
4fach pureKNX
with four buttons (e.g. light, window, shutter and scene)

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. 

Extended Value Added by the pureKNX App

 

mobil

 

Extended added value to the guest: In addition to the control of the booked rooms
with an ambiento touch panel all functions can be operated directly with a smartphone.
Simply get going by downloading the free tci ambiento app for android or iOS!

 

zeitliche Begrenzung

Time restriction: The guests control their rooms with the app from the date they check in
until the moment they check out. After this period the room controlling session 
of the app ends automatically and the next guest is getting access to it.

 

räumliche Begrenzung

Room restriction: Only the own rooms can be operated with the app. So the guests are
the masters of their own environment and can develop freely without worrying.

pureKNX System Familiy

pureKNX started with two touch panels and has developed into the system family since than. Common to all solutions is the integrated KNX-TP interface and simple programming with the ETS software. Depending on application and requirement, you can use or combine the following devices individually:

 

pureKNX-Base

  • resistive touch
  • ideal for a low cost entry
  • mounting into a built-in box
  • front design selectable

pureKNX-Line

  • combines the simple functions of pureKNX-Base with the timelessly elegant design of pureKNX-Trend
  • various mounting options
    (in the wall in the UPG, flush with the
    wall in the EPG, in front of the wall or
    as a tabletop unit)
  • compatible with pureKNX-Trend7/
    -Trend10

pureKNX-Trend

  • glass touch 7", 10" and 16"

Touchpanel IP65

If you want to use KNX panels in harsh environments for example near heating systems, in utility rooms or near swimming pools, they need to meet some other requirements than those KNX panels, which are placed in a smart home or a conference room. In this case protection class IP65 is indispensable.
