BZL Lauterbach Organises KNX Competition for Apprentices at Light+Building 2014

In the workshop street at Light+Building 2014 on stand D18 in Hall 9.1 BZL Lauterbach, the Education and Technology Center of Electrical and Information Technologies will be running a competition where KNX/EIB building management tasks have to be solved in a limited time.

The KNX/EIB competition is conducted by the BZL Lauterbach on behalf of FEHR (Professional Association for Electrical Engineering and Information Technology Hessen/Rheinland – Pfalz).

In a building, the lighting, blinds and heating can be controlled with modern building control based on KNX/EIB and thus provide a high degree of functionality, comfort and safety. To illustrate the efficient use of energy, existing measurement data can be displayed by visualization components in the building.

The competition task will require components and features of the building installation to be added to make the configuration and parameterization and commissioning of various components in the KNX/EIB system.
