In conjunction with the WAGO I/O System, the KNX IP Controller is used as a user-programmable application controller within KNX IP networks. The controller supports both 750/753 Series digital and analog input/output modules, as well as communication and specialty modules. The IEC 61131-3 programmable controller is capable of 10/100 Mbit/s data rates. KNX objects of any type (EIS/DPT) can be created using the programming tool. Libraries including pre-made function blocks are readily available on the WAGO Website for programming. The controller supports a maximum of 253 communication objects, as well as 254 group addresses and associations.
Combined with the KNX/EIB/TP1 Module, the KNX IP Controller (750‐889) operates as a router on an IP backbone (ETHERNET). No IEC application is required for router functionality.
Both devices are commissioned and configured via ETS software using the WAGO product database. The software includes a plug‐in that automatically installs and opens for configuration.
The KNX IP Controller features an integrated 2‐port 10/100 Mbit/s switch, allowing a line structure to be easily created without additional network components. The maximum number of controllers that can be wired in series is 20. An internal server is available for Web-based applications. The number of KNX/EIB/TP1 I/O Modules (750‐646) supported by the KNX IP Controller does not depend on the application. When the KNX IP Controller (750-889) is connected to the first KNX/EIB/TP1 I/O Module (753-646), the controller can be used as a KNXnet/IP router. The I/O module is switched to router mode automatically. An application program is not required for operation in router mode. Additional I/O modules that are connected to a KNX IP Controller are addressed in device mode by the application.
An external KNX power supply and ETS Professional Software are required to operate the KNX/EIB/TP1 I/O Module.
A DALI Master Module connects up to 64 electronic control gears and 16 multi-sensors. When setting up a new system, it is recommended to assign a maximum of 66% of the available subscriber slots.
The WAGO ETS Plug-In is a WAGO ETS product database extension that allows the use of WAGO devices, such as the KNX/EIB/TP1 I/O Module (753-646), KNX IP Controller (750-889) and KNXnet/IP Router (consisting of KNX/EIB/TP1 I/O Module and KNX IP Controller).
