FAQ - KNX Power Supply
What is a power supply and what is it for?
Can I have an auxiliary output to supply my devices, if needed?
Yes, thanks to the Ekinex AG1 power supply, a KNX device which provides and monitor the 30 Vdc voltage that the bus system needs to work as well as an auxiliary 30 Vdc output that can be used as an auxiliary power supply for other devices powered by SELV. The total current absorbed by the 2 outputs (KNX busand auxiliary) cannot exceed 640 mA.
Actuators are devices that produce a physical action on the controlled system by executing a command received from a control device.
The CODESYS PLC executes a program and elaborates the digital and analog signals coming from sensors and meant for the actuators installed in a KNX plant.
Ekinex proposes system equipment to be able are used to build an efficient communication infrastructure and allow the system integration in different environments.
The Ekinex® actuator / dimmer is an S-mode modular KNX device for panel mounting, able to command and regulate the brightness of lighting devices.
The ekinex® gateways are modular devices for mounting a framework. It used to exchange information with one or more slave devices, or with a master device communicate over a RS485 differential serial or Ethernet network.
In a home automation plant, commands are often realized with pushbutton interfaces, commonly referred to as “spiders”, which are connected to traditionals rockers.
The Ekinex® metering products are divided into energy meters, communication modules and network analyzers.
The Ekinex® products for temperature control are grouped in fancoil, electrothermal actuator and mixing group controllers.
