The e-magazine for KNX home & building control

KNX UK Introduces its New KNX Consultants Guide

KNX UK has introduced its new KNX Consultants Guide. Much more in depth than the first edition, it is designed for building services consultants and specifiers working within the electrical and mechanical industry, actively involved with the design of intelligent sustainable low energy buildings.

Today, design for energy conservation is paramount if the demands of regulations, industry targets and client requirements are to be achieved. Building controls play their part within the electrical and mechanical design process by providing the operating parameters, strategy, measurement and monitoring by which all systems can operate.

The Consultants’ Guide introduces the concept of KNX Open Protocol integrated building control, highlighting its advantages compared with the traditional approach of many standalone separate systems. It also discusses why lifecycle costing must be considered at the specification stage of any project in order to achieve the carbon reduction targets set by Government and associated advisory bodies.

The philosophy of KNX is to bring together different manufacturers’ products on one bus network and so the guide explains not only the different types of products that can be integrated, but also spells out the advantages of this approach in terms of future proofing, interoperability and expanding an installation.

The Consultants’ Guide is packed with many practical examples, case studies and illustrated with highly informative building layout diagrams.
