Setting, controlling, and monitoring building functions

(PresseBox) (Nuremberg, ) Siemens Building Technologies (BT) is expanding its Gamma instabus range with the following three new devices for setting and controlling electrical installation systems: the Gamma N 305 scenic lighting/event module, the modular N 512/11 switch actuator and the N 151 IP viewer.

With the N 305 module, the user can recall up to eight different scenes or eight event programs such as "Presentation" or "Central off" that set the room or the building to a pre-defined state. This includes switching on and off, dimming of light sources, and heating control. Temperature sensors or any other sensors and events can trigger the relevant programs.

The N 512/11 switch actuator switches three outputs with 230 V AC and 16 A. The user can supplement the N 512/11 actuator with up to four expansion modules, and thus flexibly control 6, 9, 12 or 15 outputs. To replace at a later time, only the affected module needs to be changed. The switch actuator also has an integral scenic lighting control, status display, full local operation and load check.

With the Gamma N 151 IP viewer, the user's PC becomes the central switching and display element for KNX systems. The device functions as the interface between KNX signals and the LAN in the office environment. It can be used stand-alone as a operator panel and display unit. Any standard browser, whether on PC or PDA, can be used for display and operation. It is also possible to connect a centralized visualization system via the N 151 IP viewer.
