KNX RF Multi: the next generation KNX RF standard

Jens Kamenik explains the evolution of KNX RF into KNX RF Multi, what products are  available and how they are typically used. Traditional KNX installations have relied on twisted-pair (TP) cable for communication with KNX devices and powering them. This method is simple, reliable and robust. There are, however, situations where no cable, or at […]

System Maintenance: why systems integrators must fight for panel access

Simon Buddle explains that when space is at a premium, design teams can be tempted to place control panels in accessible locations, with adverse consequences for system maintenance. We’ve spoken before about maintenance on jobs. It should be a standard part of everyone’s business. Systems, once commissioned and signed off, should naturally roll over into […]

Best Practice: labelling your panels to be safe for all
