KNX BAOS Module 838 kBerry
The Weinzierl KNX BAOS Modules are a powerful solution for KNX connectivity on a compact circuit board at low costs. They are targeted at manufacturers who want to integrate existing or new products into the KNX system as full compliant devices with complete support of the ETS software.
The KNX BAOS Module 838 kBerry is an adaptation of the proven KNX BAOS modules specifically made for the Raspberry Pi. It can be attached directly to the pins of the Raspberry Pi and communicates via a serial port galvanically isolated. The module includes a certified KNX stack and can be configured with the ETS. A generic ETS database provides up to 1,000 data points. Individual ETS entries can be created with the KNX Manufacturer Tool (KNX MT).
The KNX part of the kBerry Module is supplied by the bus voltage. To implement your software for the BAOS object server the BAOS SDK is available as a free download. For using the kBerry as telegram interface the kdriveExpress SDK for the Raspberry Pi can be used. For the kDrive-Express a free version is available, too.
- Low investments
- Optimal price-performance ratio
- Shorter development time
- For modular device concept
- Simple baseboard design
- Free demo software available
Integrated Object Server
The benefit of the Object Server in the KNX BAOS Modules is the logical decoupling of the application from the KNX communication. The application can access the values of the communication objects without any knowledge of KNX telegram formats or KNX addresses used in the current installation. The KNX BAOS Module 838 kBerry offers up to 1000 data points.
The module autonomously generates and sends group telegrams. Received group telegrams will be interpreted in the module and the values will be stored in the addressed communication objects. The complete download of ETS is handled within the module.
Ready to run
The kdriveExpress SDK for the Raspberry Pi is available as a free download and allows the instant operation of the KNX BAOS Module 838 kBerry on the Raspberry Pi (which is not included in the sales kit)
Quick start into KNX device development
For a quick start into the development of KNX devices we recommend our KNX BAOS Starter Kit. It contains a development board and two KNX BAOS Modules. For the development board we provide a free demo project which implements the BAOS protocol and a simple application. A demo tool for Windows® is available to test the BAOS protocol from a PC.
A generic ETS (Engineering Tool Software) database is available for setting the data types and linking the communication objects. Of course, it is also possible to create individual databases for your devices. So the KNX BAOS Modules allow a fast development of full value KNX devices which of course can be certified by the KNX Association.
Weinzierl BAOS CSV Importer
For all Weinzierl BAOS modules and devices, a generic ETS entry is available. It contains a list of all available data points. You can select a data point type and enter a name for each data point. In addition, a so-called DCA (Device Control App) is now available with the Weinzierl BAOS CSV Importer. The Weinzierl BAOS CSV Importer is available for all Weinzierl BAOS devices with a generic ETS product database and is an easy way to export the existing configuration of a generic BAOS database into a CSV file and import it into another project. Thus, a tedious configuration by hand is spared.
The Weinzierl BAOS CSV Importer is available as a free download in the online store of the KNX Association under Shop / ETS-Apps (Creating a user account is necessary). After adding to the shopping cart and check-out you will receive the download link for the Weinzierl BAOS CSV Importer within “My account / Products“. You can also download the Weinzierl BAOS CSV Importer here.
Installation instructions and usage documentation are also available here.
Please note: the Weinzierl BAOS CSV Importer requires a commercial license of ETS 5.5 or higher.
