Stardraw bolsters KNX support

Stardraw.com has bolstered support for KNX systems with an upgrade to its system control platform, Stardraw Control.

KNX is a standardized (EN 50090, ISO/IEC 14543) network communications protocol for intelligent buildings and the successor to, and convergence of, three previous standards: the European Home Systems Protocol (EHS), BatiBUS, and the European Installation Bus (EIB or Instabus).

Stardraw Control now includes a compound or "multi-device" driver for KNX systems so that a single object in the topology view can now represent, control and monitor an unlimited number of physical devices.

Furthermore, the multi-device driver can load KNX ETS configuration files (ETS is a manufacturer-independent software tool to design and configure intelligent home and building control installations within the KNX system).

The update also includes a new IP-KNX driver which allows Stardraw Control to communicate with KNX devices through any IP-KNX gateway.
