KNX: The Standard in Home and Building System Technology

KNX is a uniform, manufacturer-independent communication protocol for intelligently networking state-of-the-art home and building system technologies. KNX is used to plan and control energy-efficient solutions for more functionality and convenience while simultaneously reducing energy costs.

KNX System Features:

  • A distributed bus system that allows devices to exchange information directly
  • Bus voltage: 24 VDC (+6/-4 V)
  • CSMA/CA protocol protects against data loss resulting from telegram collisions.

  • Up to 12,000 bus nodes can be connected

  • Data transmission rate of 9.6 kBit/s, termination resistors not required
