Gateway DALI - KNX

DIN-Rail mount modules

CODE: EK-BG1-TP

DESCRIPTION

Device working as a gateway (protocol conversion) between a DALI network and a KNX (TP) network. Configuration available through either ETS tool or dedicated PC software application, via the integrated Ethernet communication port. Mounting in distribution board on EN 60715 rail (4 modular units, each 18 mm). To be used in KNX installations for home and building automation.
