Detailed description

Energy Efficiency

The usage of automated functions already save energy in every installation. Especially the usage of KNX has a lot of potential for further energy savings, which can contribute to a better environmental footprint. Be extending KNX to more functions and applications, energy savings of up to 60% can be realised. Thanks to the flexibility of KNX, these functions can easily be implemented in this installation

Innovation

Smart homes and buildings are always an upgrade in comparison to a conventional installation. Not only automated functions and a higher level of comfort contribute to a higher living standard, but also the possibility to be ready for coming innovations. Thanks to the usage of KNX, the door has been opened to integrate new innovative solutions, using the worldwide STANDARD for home and building control.

Ease of Use

By integrating KNX, we automatically experience a higher energy efficiency and comfort. Furthermore, by the possibility to use further devices, in order to make the usage of the project easier, we can look at further opportunity to even make the whole installation easier in usage.

Applications used

  • Lighting: Switching , Dimming , Light Scenes , Timed Control , Automatic Occupancy Detection , Constant Light Control
  • Security and Safety: Supervision (e.g. Cameras)
  • Operation and Visualisation: Switches / Push Buttons , IR Remote Control , PC Visualisation , Touch Panels & Display Panels
  • Automation and Remote Access: Timed Functions , Logical Functions , System Supervision , Internet Access , Remote Programming
  • Energy Management/Smart Metering: Metering , Data Logging , Visualisation , Current Detection

Customer's description

As of the completion of construction in Guangzhou Metro System new lines, GVS has won the KNX part in the metro system automation. The THREE new lines (line #13, #14, #21 with 40 stations) are now being implemented with K-BUS (KNX) as well as other KNX brands, functions include public lighting, entrance/exit lighting, centralized/scenario control, sensors, metering etc. are being used into the project. The whole project will be finished within December 2017. ONCE FINISHED, THIS WILL BE A NEW RECORD (LARGEST) OF KNX AUTOMATION SYSTEM IN THE CATEGORY OF METRO STATION AUTOMATION WORLDWIDE.
