Theben adds KNX version to LUXA 103 presence detector for indoors and outdoors applications

Theben is expanding its LUXA 103 presence detector series for efficient indoor and outdoor lighting and HVAC control with a KNX version. The LUXA 103 S360-12 KNX with round detection area (360°, Ø 12 m at 3 m mounting height) is ideal for individual and open-plan offices, meeting and storage rooms, cellars and toilets. The LUXA 103 S360-28 KNX with rectangular detection area (360°, 28 x 5 m at 3 m mounting height) acts as a special presence detector for corridors, hallways and corridors. This reduces the number of devices required and benefits from a consistent design for all detectors in the building. Both devices each have 2 light and HVAC channels as well as 3 logic channels. A device variant is also available for the KNX smart home system LUXORliving.

Elegant design, flexible installation

The LUXA 103 KNX offers an elegant, compact design and many other advantages: The devices are not only suitable for simple surface-mounted installation, but also for quick ceiling or flush-mounted installation. Using the theSenda Plug app in combination with theSenda B remote control or via the ETS, the presence detectors can be parameterised with minimal effort – even for scene control. With the day/night switchover, separate lux values and run-on times can be preset for day and night operation. The integrated temperature sensor for HVAC control enables numerous other functions.

Protection class IP54

Thanks to protection class IP54, operation in outdoor areas such as covered house entrances, balconies or terraces as well as in damp rooms is also possible without any problems. The highlight is the clever rubberisation of the cable inlet for surface-mounted versions. It ensures that the cable access into the device is optimally protected against moisture.

Tested detection

As with all presence detectors and motion detectors from Theben, the detection range of the LUXA 103 KNX is tested in the Theben sensLAB detector laboratory according to strict sensNORM criteria. The optimum basis for reliable detector planning.
