Theben Adds to PlanoCentro Family with Presence Detectors for Large Offices and Training Rooms

Theben has added three-channel presence detectors to the current PlanoCentro product family (PlanoCentro and PlanoCentro KNX).

The Theben PlanoCentro 201 offers an additional presence channel for energy-efficient HVAC control of classrooms, seminar rooms, offices or hotel rooms, among others. If no one is in the room, the presence detector turns off the light and powers down the heating and ventilation control.

The Theben PlanoCentro 300 uses an additional light channel for presence-dependent control of a third light group, for example to light up a whiteboard in classrooms.

PlanoCentro KNX presence detector – for energy efficient light control

The PlanoCentro KNX presence detector extends the PlanoCentro family with a powerful KNX solution for energy-efficient lighting schemes. The PlanoCentro full-and semi-automatic KNX presence detector supports switching or constant light control with standby function of two light channels and scenarios. Parameters can be easily set and adjusted via a touchpanel or via the SendoPro remote.
