One of the greatest advantages of working with KNX-RF products is the seamless experience from the system integration point of view:
ETS and RF-related Apps
ETS continues as the all-purpose tool, which is able to configure KNX-RF devices not only via TP/RF media couplers, but also directly thanks to the USB-RF. KNX RF devices are easily spotted in the Online Catalog, thanks to the specific wireless symbol, and are added to the project like any other device (taking into consideration that the transmission medium must be set accordingly).
Another great support for KNX Partners working with KNX RF devices is the availability of specific Apps for RF device management: it is possible checking the signal strength between RF devices in a visual way, which allows the system integrator placing re-transmitters (when necessary) in the most optimal position, commission devices knowing that the signal strength, etc.
KNX RF Applications
The increase of KNX devices dedicated to different applications (lighting, HVAC, relays, push-buttons, shutters…) makes possible that pure KNX RF installations are conceivable: not only extensions of KNX-TP installations, but whole installations (back-end and front-end) conforming KNX-RF projects. Check the attached brochure with some good examples, including devices implementing KNX Secure communication and also battery-less devices.
