In comparison with classic electrical installations, an intelligent building control system offers noticeable advantages. All the different functional subsystems within the building are integrated via a bus connection to a single communicating system. This enables the optimal, energy efficient interaction of the subsystems, which is almost impossible with conventional technology.

More comfort, more efficiency, more safety

morecomfort_buildings_292x196Intelligent building control systems enable the realization of a complete solution according to the wishes of your project partners and customers, whether they are buyers, tenants or operators. The functions of ABB i-bus KNX can be quickly and simply adopted to suit to the individual needs and uses of the premises. The system warrants energy-saving, tailor-made control of all electrical consumers and offers at the same time the best possible safety and security for people and property.

A wise investment

investment_building_292x196Utilizing ABB i-bus KNX means cost advantages throughout the entire lifetime: from planning and implementation, through the building phase, sale or rental, right up to operation and administration. This ensures that the building well be up-to-date and profitable in the long-term thus ensuring a short amortization period.

KNX - The standard


KNX is the first globally standardized system for the automation of residential and non-residential buildings in accordance with the international standard (ISO/IEC 14543-3), the European standard (CENELEC EN 50090, CEN EN 13321-1 and 13321-2), the Chinese standard (GB/Z 20965) and the US standard (ANSI/ASHRAE 135).

ETS – The universal KNX software


Electrical professionals can simply select products from a database by drag-and-drop, set the parameters and interconnect sensors and actuators with one another. After a KNX installation has been successfully commissioned, the ETS software tool assists in the creation of the project documentation. The ETS runs under the current versions of Microsoft Windows®. ABB offers comprehensive training programs for the parameterization and commissioning of the ABB i-bus® KNX system.
