KNX STACK FOR LINUX kTux
Today many devices for building automation use a Linux platform for control purpose. Typical examples are boiler, air condition, ventilation, photovoltaic converters or charging station for electrical cars.
The purpose of this product is to connect a Linux device to the KNX network. The result is a full value KNX device which can be managed by ETS® commissioning software and can even be certified according the KNX Standard.
Architecture of the kTux Solution
A binary executable file handles the management and communication of the KNX system completely by itself. An application can access the API of the KNX Stack via a TCP/IP socket. It uses the BAOS protocol, which is well established for many years.
This solution is available for three KNX media:
- KNX TP (twisted pair), bus access via USB Stick or Module
- KNX RF (radio frequency), bus access via USB Stick or Module
- KNX IP (internet protocol), bus access via IP/Ethernet
