KNX devices are characterised by the fact that their application software offers parameters for all possible functions. Furthermore, with the help of ETS, device configurations can be easily changed at all times. But there are however situations where systems integrators have to dig deeper into devices. It can for example happen that unknown bus components come to the surface unexpectedly, when reconstructing an existing
KNX installation. In such cases, the ETS App “Device Reader” can be used in order to read out the memory of devices, which will provide the user with the crucial and possible clarifying information.
This ETS App is intended to exchange Group Address information of Busch-ComfortTouch® panels from Busch-Jaeger or ABB between ETS and IPP. The ETS App provides IPP data with recent changes in ETS and vice versa ETS data in IPP. By pressing the import button you can import XML files that were created by IPP into ETS. Using the export button you can generate an XML file for import into IPP.
Speed up project design!
The ETS App "Extended Copy" is used to quickly create similar structures in a project. This feature is meant especially for KNX users dealing with large projects, with for example recurring room functionality. During the copy process, a dedicated dialog will allow devices, bus lines, even complete building parts together with their destination address assignments, parameterization, group addresses, links, text attachments and other information to be adjusted. Thereafter, the configuration is inserted seamlessly. This results in new projects at very short notice. Projects that otherwise had to be re-configured via a very time-consuming workflow.
For full system visualisation, telegrams shall be allowed to pass the line coupler. To this end, a dummy device is inserted in the ETS project. It contains all the Group Addresses required by the visualisation system. The ETS takes the Group Addresses from the dummy device into account when creating the filter tables.
Fill VisualizationDummy helps you to link a dummy device in the ETS with a list of Group Addresses for a visualization.
Product data for dummy devices can be obtained from several manufacturers.
The information about the group addresses can be read either from a file (different formats are supported), or the group addresses can be selected from the current ETS4 project by drag and drop.
The ETS App Function Test supports you in function test / acceptance of a finished KNX project:
- At any time, it is clearly visible which functions are tested and with which result
- The results can be printed as report
- For the function types Switching, Dimming, Sun protection and Heating, pre-defined "Mini-Visualizations" are available making it easy to view and modify the current states.
- It is possible to control the App from iOS or Android-based mobile devices with the help of the "Elvis Viewer" app.
