KNX is the only open worldwide standard for Home and Building Control. KNX complies with the requirements of the international standard (ISO/IEC 14543 - 3) as well as with both European standards (CENELEC EN50090 and CEN EN13321-1 respectively EN13321-2) and the US ANSI/ASHRAE.
In 1990, nine companies with an electro-technical and building management background founded the KNX Association. Since then more than 300 companies from 34 countries have joined the KNX association, which is based in Brussels, Belgium, and offers more than 7000 certified products. KNX offers wired (Twisted Pair, Powerline, IP/Ethernet) as well as wireless communication (Radio Frequency) solutions.
The high interest in China for compatible KNX products and the KNX technology has encouraged the KNX Association to have the international ISO/IEC approved Standard 14543-3 translated into Chinese. The translated KNX Standard was fed into the Chinese standardization process via the standardization body SAC TC124 and approved by this committee as GB/T 20965, making KNX the only approved standard for Home and Building Control in China.
China is predicted to be one of the most prominent markets for intelligent building control in the coming years. KNX is well prepared for the market growth in China. A multitude of KNX member companies (including 20 Chinese members) have already been active in the market for years. There are now four certified training centers that offer qualified KNX training for system integrators, building designers and investors.
A neutral testing laboratory already supports manufacturers when certifying their products according to the KNX standard.
The manufacturer and product independent KNX commissioning tool ETS is now available in Chinese and the KNX Handbook in Chinese offers an introduction into the KNX technology.
