New logic elements such as »Calendar«, »Lua Script«, or »Statistics« enable you to comfortably realise challenging tasks. With little helpers, the so called »Tools«, you can change or filter values between two logic elements. Its web-based, platform-independent technology allows you to use the LOGIKEDITOR on almost any device.

     

    It can be used in parallel to the existing »Job Editor«. Your configured jobs from the classic editor will stay intact and you can continue to edit them there.

    Service Release for EIBPORT 2.1

    2016-10-10 17:25

    Update for EIBPORT 2.1

     

    For us, as a manufacturer of innovative and long-lasting KNX products, security is a vital issue also for our older hardware. Through information provided by external experts we were able to increase the data security when accessing EIBPORT 2.1 (08/2008 - 08/2011) devices via Internet.

    To mitigate the underlying issue, BAB TECHNOLOGIE published a service release. It is available to you in the download section of our website. This latest firmware (0.11.8) allows you to connect to an EIBPORT 2.1 via Internet using a VPN (Virtual Private Network). We recommend that all customers with affected devices apply the update. To further increase security during access via Internet, we recommend the following measures:

    • Use a VPN to connect to your EIBPORT via Internet

    (You can find instructions for setting up a VPN here)

    • Use password-protected visualisations
    • Create an isolated network for your building automation (in large facilities)

    Should you have further questions regarding this topic, or others, send us an email (info@bab-tec.de) or call us at +4923147642530.

    SMART GATEWAY SOLUTIONS

     

    »Smart Gateway Solutions «

    At Light & Building 2016 in Frankfurt a. M., we focused on «Smart Gateway Solutions» and showcased intelligent solutions in the fields of smart home, smart building, multiroom audio, lighting control, and intelligent use of photovoltaic energy.

    We showed how easy and, above all, safe it is to combine FACILITYMASTER and LINKMODULE, using our BAB SECURE LINK protocol, to solve demanding facility management scenarios.

    We managed to capture the imagination of our visitors with new approaches to creating reasonably priced real-time 3d visualisations of office buildings, and smart use cases for NFC and iBeacon technology.

    The long-awaited relaunch of the "job editor" has surely been our highlight at this year's fair. Graphical editing, simulating logics, job groups and intelligent filters are only some of its new features. Based on cutting-edge HTML5 technology, the new "job editor" is incredibly versatile.

    Our top-hat rail audio product family has been extended with a premium amplifier and a dedicated server. Both were thoroughly tested by our customers during the fair. Our customers like to refer to this now completed system as a «Sonos® for top-hat rail mounting».

    We also presented the numerous variants of our DUODMX GATEWAY, which offer solutions for controlling RGB LEDs over KNX, EnOcean or directly with a smartphone app. With a total of 11 varieties, the DUODMX GATEWAY is surely the LED controller with the broadest spectrum of control possibilities in the market.

    Finally, one more innovation on display was our fully integrated intercom solution, a cooperation with Comelit. It extends our popular «CUBEVISION» visualisation with yet another convenient feature.

    AUDIO MODULE

    2014-06-30 09:14

    The AUDIOMODULE is a network streaming client which is optionally available with Line-Out or Speaker output. As a top hat rail device, it is installed in the distribution board. It is easily configured by means of a Web user interface. Based on the proven Squeezebox™ technology, it is integrated into the KNX® or EnOcean® system in next to no time in connection with the Logitech™ Media Server and EIBPORT. Apart from the option of playing back music from the local server, the use of Spotify is also possible.

    AUDIOMODULE as the Client

    tl_files/Artikelbilder/Service/News/AUDIOMODULE/AUDIOMODULE_Zeichnung_Client_EN.jpg

    The AUDIOMODULE works as a squeeze slave (client) and automatically logs in to the Logitech™ media server. The server transfers the music from its hard disk to the modules via the network. It can be controlled using the visualisation of the EIBPORT or via KNX® or EnOcean® sensors.

    AUDIOMODULE – Stand Alone

    tl_files/Artikelbilder/Service/News/AUDIOMODULE/AUDIOMODULE_Zeichnung_StandAlone2_EN.jpg

    The AUDIOMODULE works as a Logitech™ media server. The music is either on a locally connected USB stick or is available on the network. Any smartphone or tablet with the UPnP application controls the music transfer from its source to the AUDIOMODULE. Depending on the application, the music can also be played from the smartphone.

    KNX EASY

    2014-06-30 08:53

    Our old KNXeasy is obsolete – now the future beckons for our new KNXEASY. The KNXEASY converts KNX telegrams into ASCII code and vice versa. This enables third-party applications to be integrated extremely easily. KNXEASY sends its data not only via TCP but also via UDP. Thanks to the use of ETS4 project data, the identifiers and data types can simply be assigned to the ASCII commands. In addition, the KNXEASY is the programming interface for the ETS which means, for example, that it saves the USB interface.

    The KNXEASY in use

    KNXEASY – KNX/TP

    tl_files/Artikelbilder/Service/News/KNXEASY/KNXeasy_KNX-TP_EN.jpg

    KNXEASY is connected to the twisted pair bus as a further KNX participant. The third-party application communicates via the network (TCP or UDP) bidirectionally with KNXEASY after the KNXEASY protocol is implemented. This provides the third-party application full access to the KNX system and vice-versa.

     

    KNXEASY – KNXnet/IP

    tl_files/Artikelbilder/Service/News/KNXEASY/KNXeasy_KNXnet-TP_EN.jpg

    In larger installations, the KNXEASY replaces an IP router with the integrated KNXnet/IP server. Using the KNXEASY protocol, party applications are connected bidirectionally to the entire system. Therefore, the advantages of both worlds are ideally linked with just a little extra work. 

    DUO DMX GATEWAY SR

    2014-06-30 08:45

    (Send and Receive)

    As is well-known, the DUODMX GATEWAY has two independently configurable DMX interfaces each with 512 channels. The SR ("Send/Receive") versions are new and facilitate not only the DMX Master mode, but also the DMX Slave mode. The gateway transmits DMX packages in master mode and receives them in slave mode. In this way the DUODMX GATEWAY serves not only as a unidirectional gateway between KNX and DMX, but also sends the DMX values on request as an acknowledgement to KNX. The standalone version is also new: Independently of a building control system, DMX devices are therefore addressed directly using a smartphone app.

    The DUODMX GATEWAY in use

    tl_files/Artikelbilder/Service/News/DUODMX/DUODMX_Zeichnung_Stand_Alone.jpg

    The smartphone and the DUODMX GATEWAY log in to the local WLAN router. The smartphone application sends the control command to the gateway via WLAN. The control command is forwarded to the DMX dimmers.

    tl_files/Artikelbilder/Service/News/DUODMX/DUODMX_Zeichnung_Extension.jpg

    As an extension, the DUODMX GATEWAY is provided with the control commands from the eibPort via the BMX protocol. As a result, the DMX packages for the dimmers are triggered.

    tl_files/Artikelbilder/Service/News/DUODMX/DUODMX_Zeichnung_KNX.jpg

    The DUODMX GATEWAY is connected to the KNX® bus (twisted pair) using a pluggable screw terminal. It therefore receives its commands directly via the KNX® bus and forwards them to the DMX dimmers as converted DMX packages.

    tl_files/Artikelbilder/Service/News/DUODMX/DUODMX_Zeichnung_KNXnetIP.jpg

    In this variant, the DUODMX GATEWAY receives its control commands via KNXnet / IP routing. As a result, the DMX packages for the dimmers are triggered.tl_files/Artikelbilder/Service/News/DUODMX/DUODMX_Zeichnung_EnOcean.jpg

    The DUODMX GATEWAY is given the control command via “EnOcean® radio control”. The EnOcean® signals are converted to DMX packages and forwarded to the DMX dimmers.
