iRidium for KNX
Description on the web site
Updated: 25.01.2014

iRidium for KNX is a package of tools for creating unique interfaces and controlling automation systems on the basis of KNX equipment.

iRidium for KNX enables connection of control panels (iOS/Windows/Android/OS X) to the KNX TP1 network via any gateway or KNX router with IP Unicast support: Jung IPS 100/200 REG, Jung IPR 100/200 REG, Evika Logic Machine 2, 3, Reactor, Weinzierl KNX IP BAOS 770/771/772, ABB, Siemens, Gira, etc.

iRidium for KNX uses the IP Unicast connection to the KNX IP gateway to transfer data to the KNX TP1 network via the KNXnet/IP Tunneling protocol.
See information about working with the KNX bus through KNX IP BAOS 771/772 and Object Server (Datapoints) in the KNX IP BAOS section.

This manual introduces only the standard way of using iRidium for controlling equipment of the KNX bus (without using scripts).

Licensing of iRidium for KNX (more):

  • Device License Pro (KNX) – a license for a control panel. It enables control of any equipment in the KNX bus via any KNX IP gateway or router with the KNXnet/IP support.
  • Site License Pro (Logic Machine 2,3,Reactor) – a license assigned to a Logic Machine controller with the KNX IP gateway function. It can be uploaded on several control panels. The license works when there is connection with the licensed Logic Machine controller.
Attention.png It is important to know that Logic Machine supports not more than 10 control panels connected simultaneously. If there are more than 10 control panels, then it is required to install an additional KNX IP gateway for which you also need to get a Site license.
Attention.png This license can be used also when working with other KNX IP gateways and routers (not only Logic Machine), but the number of simultaneous connections will be lower. For example, you can use KNX IP BAOS without Object Server. It will provide up to 5 simultaneous connections.
