B.E.G. Launches KNX Presence Detectors with Built-In Sound and Temperature Monitoring

B.E.G. has released two deluxe KNX Generation 6 Presence Detectors which for the first time have built-in logic as well as sound and temperature monitoring.

The Deluxe versions of the PD2 and PD4 offer a premium solution for KNX integrators facing more demanding applications with extra functions, include a logic module, sound sensor and temperature sensor – an industry-first for the KNX market.

The logic module is independent of the detector operation and has proved to be most useful to integrators. The integrated sound sensor can be used in areas where there are restrictions to the normal presence detection such as toilet cubicals. If configured the sound sensor will activate, but only after motion is detected. Run-on times are configurable.

The built-in temperature sensor will send temperature reading to the KNX bus to be used by HVAC actuators. This means separate temperature sensor do not have to be fitted to the wall, saving installation time and expense.

The PD2 KNX is a ceiling-mounted presence detector, available in flush and surface mounting versions, and widely used for commercial projects such as open-plan office areas, with a maximum detection range of 10m.

The PD4 KNX has a much larger detection range of up to 24m across. There is a corridor version of this product which can cover up to 40m, greatly reducing the number of sensors required. B.E.G. also offer a PD4 sensor for greater heights (up to 14m height) for sports hall or warehouse applications.
