Configuration Modes

The KNX Standard includes different Configuration Modes: S-Mode (System Mode): S-Mode uses the standard frame format. It needs active Network Management (as performed by ETS) with Broadcast and Individual Addressing. Controller Mode: It uses Group communication with the standard frame format. It needs active Network Management (as performed by ETS) with Broadcast and

KNX Topology

- KNX systems can be installed at required places and can consist of several KNX subsystems. - It follows a tree topology. Nodes (N) are assigned to a line (L) Several lines are connected via a main line (ML) and form an area (A) Several areas are connected with each other via the backbone line (BL) - The basic unit of a KNX TP installation is a line which inc

System Components and Network Structure

Typically KNX network consists of 3 major set of components: - Sensors (e.g. push buttons, temperature , movement-sensors) - Actuators (e.g. Dimming units, bulb, motors) - System devices and components (e.g. Line-Couplers, Backbone-Couplers) - Operating and monitoring (visualization) devices such as control panels
