USB2KNX

USB interface between PC and KNX BUS


„The intelligent solution for optimal connections.“ The new KNX USB interface USB2KNX establishes a bidirectional data connection between PC and KNX BUS. The device enables addressing, setting parameters, visualization, protocolling and diagnosis of BUS devices.
The USB connector is galvanically isolated from the KNX BUS. With this KNX USB interface you have the possibility to address every BUS device in the BUS system. The communication between KNX USB interface and with the connected devices is handled via flexible common EMI protocol through USB2KNX. This protocol is designed for actual and future applications. The connection between KNX and PC running standard software like ETS3, EITT and other software is handled by the FALCON driver.
USB2KNX supports long messages (up to 228 byte length) and ensures easy handling in software under operating systems not supported by the FALCON driver (e.g.: Linux).
For specific diagnostic applications like EITT the USB2KNX is supporting a „raw frame“ operating mode.

       INFORMATIONS

    The USB socket and bus connection is on the front side of the device together with two yellow LEDs. Each is an indicator for connection status and traffic concerning the PC and the bus. The USB2KNX needs no application program to be downloaded in general you need no specific device driver, since the USB HID class is used. For this device class, device driver already exist in all common operating systems.

    In case of using older versions of ETS or FALCON driver, it can be necessary to provide manufacturer specific device informations to FALCON. This can be done by importing a manufacturer specific data base entry. The delivery includes a Wago BUS connecting terminal.
