Review of the fair: Weinzierl at the light+building 2018

Light + Building is the world's leading trade fair for lighting, design and intelligent building technology and thus the platform for the digital revolution in buildings. For Weinzierl Engineering, Light+Building is also the most important trade fair and so the system specialist for KNX from Burgkirchen in Upper Bavaria was represented with its own stand in 2018.

The Weinzierl trade fair team always had something to do at Light+Building. The lively response and the great interest in KNX are evidence of the trend towards standardised networking in building technology. Weinzierl presented its comprehensive range of products and solutions for KNX integration and connection to EnOcean. Among other things, the following were shown

  1. KNX Multi IO 570 and 580: 48 freely configurable inputs and outputs on 4 or 6 modules
  2. Extension 590 and 592: Power-saving relay extensions (switch/shutter) for Multi IO
  3. KNX Compact IO 530, 532, 534, 546 and 511 secure: New 1 module KNX IO devices for light control/dimming and security
  4. KNX RF Push Button Insert 440 secure: Push-button insert for standard housings with particularly soft and quiet push-button action
  5. KNX RF/TP Coupler 672: compact flush-mounted gateway for connection to KNX TP
  6. KNX RF USB Stick 340: ultra-portable stick for convenient wireless configuration

We were pleased to receive the positive feedback and thank all visitors for the interesting discussions and the visit at the fair. We hope you had a successful stay at the fair and a pleasant journey home.

We will answer your request soon and get in touch with you. Please give us some time to process your request.

New KNX RF Products from Weinzierl 

  • KNX RF Push Button Insert 440 secure: fits into standard switches and appeals with soft and quiet push of a button
  • KNX RF/TP Coupler 672: compact flush-mounted housing to connect with KNX TP
  • KNX RF USB Stick 340: compact solution for convenient wireless KNX configuration

With three new KNX RF products, Weinzierl offers a small family for the wireless version of KNX. The KNX RF Push Button Insert 440 secure convinces with a particularly pleasant touch of a button. The compact flush-mounted KNX RF/TP Coupler 762 connects KNX RF devices to the wired KNX TP bus. With the KNX RF USB Stick 340, KNX RF devices can be configured comfortably and wirelessly via a PC.

Soft and quiet click: KNX RF Push Button Insert 440 secure

The KNX RF Push Button Insert 440 secure offers KNX Data Security and mechanically fits numerous switches available on the market. Especially the soft and soft keystroke allows the installation in bedrooms and living rooms. It is supplied by a standard battery type CR2032. The built-in USB port (Micro-USB type) allows a wired configuration of the device. Of course, the device can also be configured wirelessly with the ETS 5.

Compact in a flush-mounted housing: KNX RF/TP Coupler 672

The compact KNX TP/RF Coupler 672 fits in a standard flush-mounted box and establishes the connection between KNX radio and the KNX bus. Multi-colored LEDs indicate the current operating status of the device.

Wireless configuration via ETS: KNX RF USB Stick 340

The KNX RF USB Stick 340 allows the configuration of KNX RF devices directly from the PC. In conjunction with a KNX TP/RF Coupler, the stick also allows convenient access to the entire KNX installation. This way, wired KNX devices can be configured wirelessly from the laptop using the stick.

Growing KNX IO Product line 

  • KNX Multi IO: 48 configurable inputs and outputs
  • Relay extensions for Multi IO
  • New KNX Compact IO devices for dimming and security

Weinzierl expands its KNX IO range of products. The two KNX Multi IO devices 570 and 580 each offer 48 freely configurable inputs and outputs. The relay extensions KNX IO 590 and 592 form the logical complement to the new Multi IO devices - and the compact KNX IO range (18mm width) is extended by five new devices for lighting control and security.

KNX Multi IO: 48 universal channels for control

The KNX Multi IO 570 is a universal input and output module for building control. It offers 48 digital channels. Each channel can be used as a binary input or as a binary output. The periphery (e.g. relay) is powered by an external power supply (24V DC). Input channels may be used to control e.g. of lights or blinds via KNX. They can also be configured as pulse counters, for example for energy meters. Output channels can directly control signal LEDs, external coupling relays (e.g. KNX IO Extension 590) or blind relays (e.g. KNX IO Extension 592).

KNX Multi IO 570

The integrated USB interface allows a connection between a PC and the KNX bus. The USB connection is galvanically isolated from the KNX bus. The configuration is done with the ETS (version 4.2 or higher), local programming via USB is also possible. An easy-to-read OLED display on the front allows manual operation and diagnostics.

The KNX Multi IO 580 IP corresponds in function to the KNX Multi IO 570 TP, but is connected to the installation via LAN / Ethernet. The device thus uses the medium KNX IP and can be integrated into a network parallel to KNX IP routers. It appears in the ETS (version 4.2 or higher) as usual with parameters and communication objects. The KNX addressing, based on physical address and group addresses, also remains unchanged.

Extensions for Multi IO: Relay extensions with system

KNX Multi IO 570 TP and KNX Multi IO 580 IP allow the connection of commercial standard coupling relays to the switching outputs. The KNX IO Extension 590 serves as a power-saving alternative. The coupling relay is controlled as a mono-stable relay, but uses a bi-stable relay internally, thus reducing the holding current by up to 95%.

The KNX IO Extension 592 has been specially developed for the control of blinds or shutters. The double relay is connected to only one output of a KNX Multi IO and integrates the relay outputs for both directions. The outputs are electro-mechanically locked against each other. Both KNX IO Extensions have an integrated fuse to protect high-quality equipment.

KNX IO 1TE: growth in lighting control and security

The compact KNX IO range with a width of 1TE is now receiving multiple additions in the area of ​​lighting control and security. The KNX IO 530 is a dimmer for 230 Volt bulbs and also offers two integrated binary inputs. The KNX IO 532 is a compact combined dimming / switching actuator with a PWM output for dimming LEDs with (12-24 V) and a bi-stable relay output. The model KNX IO 534 offers a total of four PWM outputs for dimming RGB LEDs or for setting the color temperature (tunable white). The KNX IO 546 is a dimmer for 0-10 volt ballasts and additionally offers a bi-stable relay output. In addition to the control of the dimmers by switching, relative dimming and dimming value, several optional functions are integrated, including scenes, automatic, snooze function or staircase lighting. Two buttons and three LEDs allow local operation and visualization of the respective device status.

With the KNX IO 511 secure, Weinzierl is expanding its product range of the IO product family by a device with support for KNX Data Security. The compact switch actuator with one bi-stable output and two binary inputs provides functions for universal outputs including scene switching, on/off delay, staircase light switching and control of heating valves (PWM for thermal actuators).

The inputs can be controlled via conventional switches with an external voltage of 12 to 230 V. The actuator together with input B1 serves as an impulse switch. Input B2 is for zero crossing detection. The configuration is encrypted with the ETS5. All data points can communicate either securely or unencrypted. Due to the small footprint, the KNX IO series allows a high degree of flexibility in the planning and design of the electrical distribution.
