We have a super selection of articles for you this month, starting with a report from the CEDIA Expo by Frederic Chaussy and Christophe Lavergne of DMC Technology. KNX USA and other manufacturers put on a splendid show of residential control technology, igniting interest in KNX as well as helping those already familiar with the protocol to better understand its capabilities.
This is followed by a step-by-step tutorial by Julio Díaz of Sapienx Automation on how to deal with traffic management in large KNX installations. For this, he uses the NETxAutomation OPC Server and BMS Server - a package that has been recommended for large KNX installations since 2006.
Next, we have a country profile on Saudi Arabia by Ayman Babelly of MacTech. A growing number of systems engineers and contractors are being trained in KNX, and it is set to play a big part in the 'economic cities' that are being developed to help the country diversify its economy. Our regular contributor, Charlotte Blissett-Griffiths of Ivory Egg then treats us to an overview of how to keep lighting control simple for the end-user, with useful tips, examples, and advice. And finally, our technical guru Simon Buddle, returns to CEDIA Expo, with his take on how KNX is spreading to the USA, and what trends he noticed at the show.
Don’t forget that you can comment at the end of these articles, and do remember to send us a picture of you, wherever you may be, with the KNX logo and a smile for our 'Where is KNX?' gallery. Enjoy!
