Certificated KNX devices manufactured by Video-Star Electronics Co. (GVS)
Video-Star Electronics Co., as a new member of the KNX Association, they are currently developing KNX products, which can be used in building & lighting smart control systems. First, they will focus on intelligent lighting control products including dimmers, switch actuators, display programmable LCD panels and multi-function sensors.
The Worldwide STANDARD for Home and Building Control
In order to transfer control data to all building management components, a system is required that does away with the problems of isolated devices by ensuring that all components communicate via one common language: in short, a system such as the manufacturer and application domains independent KNX Bus. This standard is based upon more than 24 years of experience in the market, amongst others with predecessor systems to KNX: EIB, EHS and BatiBUS. Via the KNX medium to which all bus devices are connected (twisted pair, radio frequency, power line or IP/Ethernet), they are able to exchange information. Bus devices can either be sensors or actuators needed for the control of building management equipment such as: lighting, blinds / shutters, security systems, energy management, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, signalling and monitoring systems, interfaces to service and building control systems, remote control, metering, audio / video control, white goods, etc. All these functions can be controlled, monitored and signalled via a uniform system without the need for extra control centres.
A single approach with many advantages
Wherever it is employed, KNX brings real benefits to architects, designers, and contractors and, above all, to building owners and/or users.
- Low operating costs resulting in considerable energy savings: Lighting and heating are only switched on when needed, e.g. depending on time profiles and/or actual presence, thus saving energy and money. Furthermore lighting can be controlled automatically in relation to the daylight intensity of the daylight, thus maintaining a specified minimum level of brightness at each work place and reducing energy consumption.
- Time saving: Interlinking all communicating devices with a single bus considerably reduces design and installation time. A unique manufacturer and application domains independent Engineering Tool Software (ETS) allows the design, engineering and configuration of installations containing KNX certified products. As the tool is manufacturer independent, the system integrator is able to combine products of different manufacturers with different communication media (twisted pair, radio frequency, power line or IP/Ethernet) to one installation.
- Flexibility and adaptability to future developments: A KNX installation can be easily adapted to new applications and is easily extendable. New components can be easily connected to the existing bus installation.
