KNX Association Announces 2.1 Release of the KNX Standard

It has been already more than four years since KNX proudly presented Version 2.0, in which a large number of KNX system extensions – that were previously documented in Application Notes – were fully integrated into the body text. Now we are happy to announce the 2.1 Release of the KNX Standard. Four years have indeed passed, implying 4 years of thorough work of KNX technical working and expert groups.

KNX standard version 2.1

Here are a few of these extensions and novelties, now in version 2.1:

* KNX Data Security and Security at KNXnet/IP level
* New Profiles for the true support of Radio Frequency in ETS
* Making KNX RF more robust and future proof via the Multi extension
* New standardized KNX Datapoint Types for new application domains (e.g. DPT Prioritized Scene Control for load management)
* Flexible E-Mode Channels – an innovative way of allowing to extend the current E-Mode Channels with additional group objects and parameters
* Functional Block Profiles , introducing the possibility for manufacturers to choose between different flavors of common application descriptions
* Functional Block Profiles , introducing the possibility for manufacturers to choose between different flavors of common application descriptions
* Master Reset and Configuration Signature, allowing manufacturers to reset their devices to predefined factory states respectively allowing a counter to keep track of changes in device settings
* Bringing existing mask versions to the IP level (e.g. Mask 57B0h)
* A completely overhauled Coupler 2.0 model, of which forthcoming KNX TP1/RF Media couplers will be the first realizations
