Maestro – KNX Gateway
CD Innovation is proud to announce its new version of Maestro as a ‘Gateway Only’. This new version of Maestro enables the Connection to KNX by implementing very simple ASCII commands only; thus avoiding the complexity of implementation of the full KNX protocol and benefiting from Maestro’s advantages such as:
- Providing UpToDate status of all KNX loads based on the history of telegrams sent on the KNX bus.
- Regulating KNX bus traffic load avoiding bus overload.
- Automatic transformation of Data-Types.
- No limits on amount of Group-Addresses.
- All Data-Types are supported. Maestro transforms the simple ASCII values automatically to the KNX Data Type format.
- And much more.
Following are 2 examples:
To Turn on a light on Group-Address 0/1/11, send the following string:
To set analog value such as set point on Group-Address 0/3/1, send the following string:
This enables external control systems such as: Control4, Crestron, RTI and other to control KNX, most reliably and efficiently.
Not only that, but RTI Controllers that will utilize Maestro Server as KNX gateway can dramatically enhance the efficiency of KNX to RTI integration. As it enables to import the entire KNX project from ETS to the RTI controller in less than a minute! (See this Video for a demo)
In addition, Maestro also incorporates a built in support for various common protocols to interface with KNX e.g. KNX and DMX, KNX and MODBUS etc’.
Additional protocols to interface with HVAC, Alarm Systems, Blinds e.g. CoolMaster, Paradox, DSC, Somfy can be imported by the integrator from Maestro’s existing libraries or he can develop his own interfaces to some other useful devices and protocols.
Maestro in its ‘Gateway Only’ version (no access to graphic pages made by Maestro Designer) will be offered at a reduced cost.
The new Maestro ‘Gateway Only’ version is a continuation of the company’s ongoing efforts to provide creative technology and price solutions in accordance with wishes of professional channels and customers everywhere.
