Interface for the bidirectional data connection between a PC or laptop and a KNX bus installation. It enables addressing, parameter setting, visualization, protocolling and diagnosis of KNX bus devices through ETS (Engineering Tool Software). Mounting in distribution board on EN 60715 rail (2 modular units, each 18 mm). To be used in KNX installations for home and building automation.
Connection of a PC or laptop to a KNX bus installation
The ekinex® USB/KNX interface EK-BA1-TP allows to establish a bidirectional data connection between a PC and a KNX bus installation. The device enables addressing, parameter setting, visualization, protocolling and diagnosis of KNX bus devices. With the USB/KNX interface every bus device of a KNX bus installation can be addressed. The communication between the USB/ KNX interface and the connected devices is handled via
the common EMI protocol. This protocol is designed for actual and future applications. The connection between KNX and PC running standard software like ETS, EITT
and other software is handled by the FALCON driver. The device supports long messages (up to 228 byte length) and ensures an easy handling of the software with operating systems not supported by the FALCON driver (e.g. Linux). For specific diagnostic applications like EITT the device is supporting a „Raw Frame“ operating mode.
