With the new “KNX IO” device range Weinzierl will offer inputs and outputs for KNX for the first time. Furthermore, it will also introduce its first IP only device for KNX, the KNX Multi IO 580. Together with a new set of compact 1TE devices – including a line coupler and a new USB interface – Weinzierl will also present intelligent power supplies, new IP devices and our new LineMaster for KNX.
KNX IO: Inputs and outputs for KNX
All devices of this new range are for DIN rail with a width of only 1TE (18mm). This granularity offers a maximum of flexibility especially for small and medium size installations. All devices share a unified operating concept with 3 multi-color LEDs and 2 buttons for manual operation during configuration and maintenance. An installation friendly design with plug-able screw connectors also helps to reduce costs on the construction site.
First completely IP-based KNX device by Weinzierl
A very different wiring concept shows the KNX IO Multi 580. It is one of the first KNX IP only devices on the market. So it is integrated in the KNX network directly via Ethernet/IP. The commissioning is done with ETS software very similar to the integration of KNX TP devices.
Here are devices of the new IO series in detail:
1. KNX IO 410
Binary Input with 4 channels to control lights, shutter etc. with conventional switches or contacts. Inputs can be driven with external voltage between 12 and 230 V.
2. KNX IO 411
Binary Input with 4 channels to control lights, shutter etc. with conventional switches or contacts. Inputs are designed for dry contacts.
3. KNX IO 510
Switching actuator with two outputs. The application provides the function for universal outputs including scene and timer, staircase lightning and heating valves (PWM for thermoelectric valve-drives).
4. KNX IO 511
Switching actuator with one output with two binary inputs. The output part provides the function for universal outputs including scene and timer, staircase lightning and heating valves (PWM for thermoelectric valve-drives). The inputs can be connected to conventional switches with external voltage between 12 and 230 V.
A typical use case is the replacement of conventional electromechanical impulse switches. While existing cabling can be re-used, the relay is connected to the KNX network in addition.
5. KNX IO 520
Jalousie actuator with two binary inputs. The actuator drives a shutter or blind. The inputs can be connected to conventional switches with external voltage between 12 and 230 V.
6. KNX IO Multi 580
Multi IO device, fully IP based, 48 inputs or outputs (flexible configuration), to be combined with external relays. Status and manual operation via OLED display and 4 buttons. Compact size with 6 units.
New system devices for KNX
Weinzierl has also extended its range of KNX system devices. The main aspects of the new devices are a higher grade of integration and improved usability for configuration and maintenance. Weinzierl presents the first KNX IP Interface and KNX IP Router with a width of only 1 unit.
In parallel, a new device platform with an integrated OLED display has been developed for complex devices. The graphical user interface allows a quick check of the operation state of a device including main settings like KNX individual address or IP address.
Here are the new system devices:
1. KNX USB Interface 312
KNX USB Interface in new case, support of long frames, replacement of the KNX USB Interface 311 (both with a width of one unit 1TE).
2. KNX PowerSupply DGS 366
Compact KNX power supply 640 mA with four unit width. Integrated KNX node for diagnostics and logic functions. Auxiliary power output, OLED display and 4 buttons.
3. KNX PowerSupply USB 367
Compact KNX power supply 640 mA with four unit width. Integrated KNX node for diagnostics and logic functions and integrated KNX USB Interface (Micro USB connector). Auxiliary power output, OLED display and 4 buttons.
4. KNX Coupler 650
Compact 1TE KNX line coupler.
5. KNX IP Interface 731
Compact KNX IP Interface with only one unit width, optimized position of the LAN connector. The device is bus powered only.
6. KNX IP Interface 732
New style KNX IP Interface, Status and settings via OLED display and 4 buttons, optimized position of the LAN connector.
7. KNX IP Router 751
Compact KNX IP Router with only one unit width, optimized position of the LAN connector. The device is bus powered only.
8. KNX IP Router 752
New style KNX IP Router, Status and settings via OLED display and 4 buttons, optimized position of the LAN connector.
9. KNX IP LineMaster 762
New style KNX IP LineMaster, KNX power supply with 640mA output current and bus choke. High power efficiency. Integrated KNX IP Router. Status and settings via OLED display. Compact size with 6 units.
10. KNX IP BAOS 777
Universal KNX IP Gateway with interface functionality and web server. It can be used as universal residential Gateway as well as for application specific gateway via integrated BAOS Services in binary format or web services (JSON, restful). Status and settings via OLED display. Compact size with 2 units.
