The KNX MULTI.SENSOR is suitable for ceiling mounting, manages the detection and includes a brightness sensor for environmental lighting control. The device also includes humidity and temperature sensors with the relative control algorithms and a sound sensor that can be used in rooms with parts not totally visible to the infrared sensor.
The KNX MULTI.SENSOR has a rear connector with 3 digital inputs that can be connected to buttons or switches free of potential and used for on / off commands, dimming, shutters or blinds / scenarios, sequences, step commands, etc. One of the 3 inputs can be configured as analogue for the connection of NTC temperature probes with which to send the temperature measurement on the bus or manage a complete thermostat module.
The thermostat manages 2 stages with an integrated PI controller for controlling heating and cooling equipment, valves, 2 and 4-pipe fan coils, etc. The humidity sensor (MULTI.SENSOR version) manages the measurement of the ambient relative humidity and allows the control with thresholds and ysteresis of humidification and dehumidification equipments. Presence detection, based on a passive infrared sensor, has 5 independently configurable channels with different functions that can be activated. Moreover, 12 logic blocks are available to implement simple expressions with logical or threshold operator or complex expressions with algebraic and conditional operators; It’s possible to use predefined algorithms as proportional controls of temperature and humidity or dew point calculation.
The device also integrates the “Virtual Holder Logic”; the field of application is the hotel room: through a magnetic sensor installed on the door and connected to a digital input (also to the sensor itself), accurate presence information is managed. The presence detection solution can deduce the presence of people in the room using one or more dedicated sensors. It also detects an unexpected presence and is able to differentiate more behaviors.
The device manages the ambient lighting based on the measured illuminance; it is also possible to enable the logic called “Circadian Rhythm” with which brightness and color temperature are imposed on the basis of predefined curves or on the basis of the real position of the sun during the day with respect to a terrestrial coordinate. This function allows you to recreate lighting comfort in an environment as close as possible to reality.
