To import the configuration of a KNX project into a management application like an OPC server, the ETS offers an export function called "Export OPC". This export functionality provides only basic information about the KNX installation. The NETx BMS App is a user-friendly way to import the whole KNX project and its meta-information into the NETx BMS Server or the NETx KNX OPC Server. The output of this ETS App is an enhanced export file that contains the used KNX Group Addresses, the deployed KNXnet/IP routers and interfaces, and the full ETS project structure including the network topology (areas, lines, devices, and Group Objects) as well as the building and trade view. In addition, the App detects the configured IP addresses of the KNXnet/IP routers and interfaces. Based on the topology of the KNX project, the App automatically assigns the KNX Group Addresses to the routers and interfaces that are later on used for accessing them. Thus, a manual, time-consuming and error-prone assignment of the KNX Group Addresses to the KNXnet/IP routers and interfaces is not necessary anymore. Using the NETx BMS App, the whole KNX project including the well-known ETS view can be imported into the NETx BMS Server or NETx KNX OPC Server in a fast and intuitive way.
The NETx BMS App Secure is a user-friendly way to import the whole KNX project and its meta-information into the NETx Server. The export file contains enhanced information like the used KNX group addresses, the deployed (secure) KNXnet/IP routers and interfaces, and the full ETS project structure including the network topology (areas, lines, devices, and communication objects) as well as the building and trade view. Compared to the standard NETx BMS App, the NETx BMS App Secure also exports the information required to access secure KNXnet/IP routers and interfaces. Furthermore, it allows the export of the configuration of KNX/DALI gateways that is used by the NETx LaMPS Module.
Project Data Exchange helps you to transfer ETS project data like topology, Group Addresses and building structure by exporting and importing
* between ETS projects
* between ETS and other tools (e.g. CAD programs)
The current app version works only from ETS 5.7.2! The app is available for ETS6.
Compare your current ETS project with an earlier version of the project (knxproj file or restore point) and get a detailed list of all differences for each individual project element. Jump directly from the difference list to the corresponding element. Many options control details of the comparison.
The current app version works only from ETS 5.7.2! You cannot use the app with ETS6.
All all changes made in projects (except changes that have been made by device plug-ins) are registered in chronological order in the project history automatically. By licensing the Project Tracing app, you can see all the automatically created entries. This App can also serve to monitor the progress of projects under construction.
