Coupler - KNX

The Faradite KNX coupler provides a KNX interface for our range of TAP front plates. The brings both the TAP-1 and TAP-5 switch front plates, and all the sumptuous finishes available, into the the KNX system. 

The KNX coupler boasts a huge range of great KNX features and each button can be configured to send any of the function types available on the product including Switching, Dimming, Scenes, Blinds, and advanced data types. This makes the KNX coupler a powerful option for the KNX integrator looking to offer incredible functionality from the aesthetically stunning TAP switch range. 

The internal temperature sensor gives accurate, fast temperature reporting the KNX bus, allowing for zonal; temperature control to be achieved without the need for any other bulky, standalone temperature sensors in the room. Threshold objects are available for further temperature monitoring functions. 

The humidity sensor provides building protection options so ventilation systems can be used to remove any, potentially harmful humidity from the room. Humidity threshold options can be used to control MVHR systems to boost the extraction and re-circulate the air to balance the humidity.

The halo light that gently illuminates the outer edge of the switch can be configured to provide visual feedback of each button press, or it can be controlled via KNX group object. This means it can be used as a status light for anything in the KNX system such as, doorbell notifications, alarm status, and many others. 

The KNX Coupler can be installed directly in round EU back boxes and square UK back boxes, and the back of the coupler only requires XXmm clearance in the back box.
