brightness detector / wall-mounted / outdoor / commercial
Wind speed, precipitation, twilight, temperature and brightness can all be measured and evaluated with the new KNX/EIB weather station Standard. In addition three brightness sensors offset by 90º determine the brightness. The evaluation of the sensors is possible individually or together. The weather station is installed on the building outside, for example on the roof, and connected to the KNX/EIB system.
Two different limit values can be taught in per sensor. A teach-in function allows for adoption of a current measurement value as the limit value.
In order to increase functional reliability, the weather station monitors itself with regard to important functions and reports corresponding faults independently via signal objects on the bus. Operation without 24V additional supply is possible. In this case, rain detection is deactivated and the corresponding safety objects are permanently activated.
