Façade controlling for up to 16 individual facades that provides optimum lighting and climate conditions in living and utility rooms. The environmental factors are measured through a weather station and supplied to the KNX Bus.
The weather station (IP 65) can determine 2x wind speed, wind direction, rain, snow, frost, ice, outside temperature and brightness from 8 directions. Time and date are sent to the KNX Bus from the DCF receiver integrated in the weather station. In addition, inside temperature values can be determined and assigned to zones to achieve maximum energy savings.
Zone timers must be integrated in the central controller. Weeks and year timers can also be used and integrated freely on the KNX Bus.
Automatic commands can be stored as desired by the user selectively and are over-writable in the zones.
All safety functions (wind speed, wind direction, rain, snow, frost, ice, outside temperature) are sent to the Bus cyclically.
For each of the 16 facades, individual response and delay times can be parameter for all available functions.
Adjusting slats according to the zone and depending on the elevation and azimuth of the sun must be parameterable in the user software. The complete parametering of the sun protection central controller is done over a user-friendly, Windows, graphic interface. The individual façades can be controlled over the user interface. Moving directly to a freely determined position is also possible. For maintenance reasons, it is possible to block individual façades or even the entire building over the user interface.
All real values can be sent to the KNX Bus and can be visualised simultaneously over the Windows interface on a PC. Additionally, the state of the façades can be called up and the set values, as long as password access is given, can be changed in the menu by the user without previous ETS knowledge.
