The world’s first wireless energy harvesting KNX light switch module that is configurable via ETS (from ETS5) is being presented by ZF Friedrichshafen at ISE.
The KNX-RF Module – which is configurable without a gateway – uses energy harvesting technology to power the switch, and therefore needs no power supply for normal operation. This means that the module requires virtually no maintenance during operation. The accessory power supply is only required for programming or to make changes within the application.
ZF’s intelligent operating concept allows the switch to carry out up to six different functions. The functions available for dimming, shading operations, scene retrieval, or classic toggle operation make it possible to perfectly adapt each module to the user’s needs.
The wireless light switch module comes ready to install and is compatible with standard frames and panels for energy harvesting light switch modules, and can also be combined with customer-specific designs and control panels.
