Steinel has integrated its microwave, ultrasonic and high frequency presence detectors with the KNX system aimed particularly at building management systems.
The KNX platform is generally used to detect slight movements at office rooms, conference rooms, class rooms, laboratories, meeting areas and in other general places where there are large motions such as aisles and corridors.
The KNX system is considered as the industry standard for use in various control applications such as building control, energy management, ventilation, security systems, heating, metering and air conditioning. The technology that can be used in both new and old buildings has been employed by more than 200 companies all over the world in various applications. The presence sensors from Steinel that are enabled with KNX are equipped with solutions such as brightness control, lighting control, HVAC system control and detecting presence. The sensors are controlled by the use of ETS software, which can provide programs for each sensor separately. Such programmed sensors can then be used for controlling building monitoring systems.
The KNX enabled presence detectors from Steinel also come with two IR remote controls that are for optional use. These remote controls can be used to set the dimming, lighting, retrieving and saving in four modes. The remote control can also be used to calibrate the brightness control, to change the parameters that should be used for detection and to start and end a test mode without the use of the ETS software.
