The definitive guide to KNX

The KNX UK Association has introduced a definitive guide to KNX intelligent building technology with their new 24 page Consultants Guide. It sets out precisely for M&E consultants and specifiers, detailed information on the KNX standard and the applications of KNX technology. It will assist building professionals in making informed choices on the use of KNX within any building services project.

The KNX Consultants Guide looks at the challenges faced by consultants in delivering sustainable building services designs and optimising the energy consumption of buildings in the 21st century. It goes on to discuss steps to good practice in the specification and application of building control systems. The advantages of open protocol and the KNX Worldwide Standard for Home and Building Control are illustrated through examples of KNX bus cable specifications, system layouts and KNX reference projects.

The philosophy of KNX is to bring together products from different manufacturers on one bus network. The Consultants Guide explains not only the different types of products that can be integrated seamlessly, but also spells out the advantages of this approach to consultants, systems integrators and building owners alike.
