ThinKnx Configurator is the tool for the creation and development of the supervision project. It allows to create all the connections needed between the graphic interface and the actual devices that are part of the system. With simple steps and intuitive parameters, the graphical interfaces can be compiled with high customization and used with all clients and all devices. Just as easily, the user can create logics and configure system elements in order to achieve integration between all the devices. According to the specific user, the tool allows to load the project on client devices and servers with differentiated exports.
There is a wizard that automatically provides the base information in order to speed up the creation of a new project.
Graphics are highly customizable. The usage default graphics can be avoided by importing wallpaper images, commands etc.
ETS Project Import
In order to make the commands setting more accessible, it is possible to visualize the KNX groups tree by importing the CSV file of the ETS project.
The project can be optimized by removing unused files and resizing images in order to preserve performances on clients, which require a poorly elaboration.
Once the project has been configured, it is possible to upload it on the server simply by clicking a button in the Configurator software.
Different versions of the project can be created to upload on iPad, iPhone, Android or Window, specifying whether each graphic object of the project can be displayed or not.
Groups and Users
The Configurator allows to manage exportable users groups. Graphical (for example full-screen mode) or functional (for example VoIP data) parameters can be configured in relation to the settings previously selected by the user.
It is possible to specify which users or groups are allowed to visualize each graphic object in the interface as soon as the project has been exported.
Logical operations (AND, OR, XOR) based on values coming from KNX groups can be created using simple and intuitive interfaces. This function is useful to create the OR logic which switches off the boiler when all the heating valves are closed.
This function allows to create mathematical functions, to write reports or to control some commands. For example, the switching on/off timing of the boiler can be determined by associating a load (a relevance level) to the heating valves.
The generic gateway allows to perform actions depending on a command or a specific value sent by the KNX bus. It can be used to create temperature alarms.
The generic command allows to include customized commands, different from “Switch” object, into the interface. Using this object, it is possible to send KNX telegrams to specified groups, to launch scenarios, to operate in the graphic interface, and so on. It is commonly used to control devices such as IR Trans, audio/video moulds, Sonos etc.
