Building systems engineering KNX
A panel for controlling KNX systems and door communication
Intuitive operation for more convenience
With its high-quality capacitive surface the Busch-SmartTouch® adapts itself to the mobile trend and is as easy to operate as a smartphone or tablet. The display, which is intuitively operated, can be used to switch and dim the lights in the entire building, as well as control the blinds and the heating. The integrated room temperature controller cares for this. Also complete scenes can be created from all these functions. A total of 480 KNX control elements are displayed on a maximum of 30 pages. The user himself can define his favourite pages and set time programs. Also logic functions and presence simulation are easy to specify. All of this makes the life of the user more pleasant, safer and it saves energy.
The colour display has a diagonal of 17.78 cm (7") in 16:9 format. The special feature of the Busch-SmartTouch®: It has a minimal mounting height only 13 mm. The panel is available in two colour versions – in genuine black or white glass. It can thus be perfectly combined with the carat® and Busch-axcent® switch ranges. The bottom design bar made of brushed stainless steel lends the panel that visual refinement. In combination with the mounting frame the Busch-SmartTouch® can be mounted on the old Busch-Jaeger control panel box, normal flush-mounted boxes or also on the new ABB-Welcome table stand.
One device for two systems
The operating system of the Busch-SmartTouch® is located on a supplied micro SD card (SDHC). This must be inserted in the suitable fixture on the device prior to initial commissioning. Subsequent updates of the operating system are then made via the SD card. The home automation of the KNX system and the fully integrated functions of the
ABB-Welcome in the one device - a real plus of the Busch-SmartTouch®. Aside from the direct KNX connection, the panel also has a direct two-wire connection for the ABB-Welcome. The door communication system, which has won several awards, impresses with its holistic concept for numerous areas of application and sets both technical as well as creative standards. Instead of needing an additional indoor station for ABB-Welcome, door calls can now be very simply accepted via the
Busch-SmartTouch®. This opens totally new dimensions for home automation - with a high degree of comfort, safety and energy efficiency.
