FS-8700-146- KNX

FieldServer Driver – Fieldbus


KNX Gateway


The KNX driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices using KNX protocol. The Fieldbus connection is included with the FieldServer. The FieldServer can emulate a Client.

KNX driver enables data access from KNX networks to other FieldServer protocols. Most KNX datapoint types are supported, allowing communication to almost any kind of KNX device in the installation, such as temperature sensors, shutters, light switches, actuators, alarms etc. This allows Building Automatino and Industrial Control systems to access a KNX network using direct read and write of KNX configured groups. This setup does not require the use of ETS4 to configure the QuickServer KNX gateway.

The QuickServer is intended to act as a Client on the

KNX bus and make information available to other protocols.
