Theben compact room sensors for zoned KNX lighting control


Theben compact room sensors for zoned KNX lighting control

Established across mainland Europe as a source of innovative controllers enabling KNX engineers to make best use of the open protocol to design more intelligent buildings, Theben is making its products and technical support services more easily available in the UK through it’s London-based daughter company Timeguard Ltd.

The flagship square detection fields of the Compact Office ceiling-mounted presence detectors have been chosen for major UK infrastructure projects, where there is a need to achieve energy efficiency while catering for flexible and often unpredictable working patterns.

The square pattern of the detectors gives full coverage without overlap, so reducing the total number of detectors needed and making planning a lot more straightforward. With two outputs, these controllers can be used to control two lighting groups, either switching lights on and of or maintaining constant lighting levels. Master-slave configurations give designers maximum flexibility in planning detection areas and lighting zones.

The features packed into the stylishly-designed Compact Office detectors belie its small size: maximum dimensions of the installed product are 102.5 mm^2^, mounted on a 70mm^2^ assembly plate.

An additional benefit of these detectors is their ability to make allowance for users’ behaviour, within pre-set KNX-programmed parameters, to avoid unnecessary on/off switching which, when energy saving lighting is fitted can be counter-productive.
