HAI by Leviton Announces KNX Gateway
Allows users to control KNX devices from HAI controllers and interfaces
Melville, New York – HAI by Leviton announced today the launch of its KNX Gateway, an interface allowing HAI by Leviton’s Omni and Lumina Ethernet-based controllers to communicate with and control KNX devices through KNX’s standardized network communications BUS protocol. Lighting devices, temperature and energy management, motors for window coverings, shades, shutters and more are among the many KNX devices that can be controlled in homes and businesses from an HAI by Leviton interface or automated via controller programming.
The KNX Gateway maps specific data points of each KNX device to a unit or thermostat number on the HAI by Leviton controller. The interface between the KNX Gateway and the HAI by Leviton controller utilizes a RS-485 serial connection. Compatible controllers include the OmniPro II, Omni IIe, Omni LTe, Lumina Pro and Lumina. The KNX Gateway is powered either via a PoE Ethernet connection or 12-24V AC/DC.
“The KNX Gateway contributes to the bountiful lighting control options within our automation solutions,” said Jay McLellan, president of HAI by Leviton. “KNX is a truly an open platform that guarantees cross-vendor interoperability, and the KNX Gateway product from HAI by Leviton allows for seamless integration with our systems.”
The HAI by Leviton KNX Gateway, part number 97A00-1, is available now in all markets. A high resolution photo of the KNX Gateway can be downloaded here: http://www.homeauto.com/mediacenter/HaiPRImage.asp?image=KNXGateway.jpg
