KNX Gateway DMX-IP
KNX gateway DMX-IP
art.-No.: 135 16 111
Intelligent system device, RMD type, for coupling of DMX512 systems to the KNX/EIB. To this effect, the KNX gateway DMX-IP is connected with the KNX and the DMX512 bus. The gateway needs 24 V AC/DC supply voltage.
The following functions are supported:
• DMX master:
routing of telegrams from KNX to DMX
• DMX slave:
routing of telegrams from DMX to KNX
• Control of RGB or RGBW luminaires via special
• Master dimming object for RGB and RGBW group
• Dimming out of the KNX via 1byte or 4bit
• Assignment of several group addresses per DMX
• Max. 2000 group addresses / max. 1024 objects
• Programming either via RS 232 or Ethernet
• The gateway is downwards compatible to older
• Firmware updates possible
By means of the tool software DMX-Gate2 the gateway is configured and the connection between the DMX512 devices and the KNX group addresses is made. DMX-Gate2 offers separate configuration of KNX objects and logic modules to configure RGB or RGBW luminaires as group. In this case, the required communication objects for the DMX channels are created automatically. Via a master dimming object (1byte) all assigned RGB channels can be dimmed by percentage comfortably with only one KNX group address. Absolute (1byte) or relative (4 bit) KNX-dimming can be configured.
It is not possible to send illegitimate telegram contents.
Programming is effected either via RS232 or Ethernet interface.
The DMX-Gate2 supports reading of already configured gateways (reconstruction) and programming of the physical address of the KNX project.
DMX multi master operation requires a DMX Merger. Depending on the data direction desired, the KNX gateway can be programmed either as DMX master or as DMX slave. For bi-directional data transfer two gateways are needed.
The tool software DMX-Gate2 can be downloaded free-of-charge in German and English language at www.elka.de.
