The ProtoCessor KNX OEM Gateway enables manufacturers to provide KNX communications output to meet their customer’s interoperability needs.
Most KNX datapoint types are supported, allowing communication to almost any kind KNX device in the installation, such as temperature sensors, shutters, light switches, actuators, alarms etc. This allows OEM devices to access a KNX network using direct read and write of KNX configured groups. This setup does not require the use of ETS4 to configure the ProtoNode KNX gateway.
Typical data points supported on the ProtoNode with KNX are:
Switching (1-bit DPT1)
Step Control (4-bit DPT2)
Dimming (4-bit DPT3)
Set (8-bit DPT4)
Access Control (32-bit DPT15)
Scene Number (8-bit DPT17)
Scene Control (8-bit DPT18)
Enum Value (8-bit DPT20)
Unsigned Values (8-bit DPT5, 16-bit DPT7, 32-bit DPT12)
Signed Values (8-bit DPT6, 16-bit DPT8, 32-bit DPT12)
Floating point (16-bit DPT9, 32-bit DPT14)
The product versions include:
KNX Gateway: Allows BMS systems to access a KNX network using direct read and write of KNX configured groups. This setup does not require the use of ETS4 to configure the ProtoNode KNX gateway.
KNX Device Emulation: Allows third party devices to be recognized as KNX devices. This utilizes the system mode offered by ETS4, to configure the ProtoNode along with the rest of the devices in the KNX installation.
