FAQ - KNX PLC
What is a PLC and what is it for?
The CODESYS PLC executes a program and elaboratesthe digital and analog signals coming from sensors and meant for the actuatorsinstalled in a KNX plant. A PLC installed a cabinet allows the implementationof specific functions for installed systems and plants: load control, heatingsystem, anti-theft system, irrigation, LAN, lighting, etc.
Does Ekinex have a KNX logic module in its catalog?
Yes, the CODESYS PLC is a freely programmable logic controller equipped with a KNX interface alllowing the contemporary executionof multiple complex logic blocks. The system integrator writes the program on aPC, using the objects defined in the ETS project, and downloads it into the PLCthrough the proper communication cable. The system integrator can verify at anytime what the PLC is elaborating by connecting to it with a PC. For furtherinformation click here.
Actuators are devices that produce a physical action on the controlled system by executing a command received from a control device.
Ekinex AB1 and AG1 KNX power supplies provide the network voltage (SELV) to all KNX components.
Ekinex proposes system equipment to be able are used to build an efficient communication infrastructure and allow the system integration in different environments.
The Ekinex® actuator / dimmer is an S-mode modular KNX device for panel mounting, able to command and regulate the brightness of lighting devices.
The ekinex® gateways are modular devices for mounting a framework. It used to exchange information with one or more slave devices, or with a master device communicate over a RS485 differential serial or Ethernet network.
In a home automation plant, commands are often realized with pushbutton interfaces, commonly referred to as “spiders”, which are connected to traditionals rockers.
The Ekinex® metering products are divided into energy meters, communication modules and network analyzers.
The Ekinex® products for temperature control are grouped in fancoil, electrothermal actuator and mixing group controllers.
