ISH is one of the world’s leading trade fairs for energy and HVAC ( heating ventilation and  air-conditioning ) in the building . This fair presents trend-setting solutions for buildings – a good reason for TAPKO to join in.
On the KNX-booth in Hall 10, level 3, A49, we present up-to-date Tapko-developed KNX modules as well as the intelligent KNX communication stack KAIstack.
In keeping with the motto “one for all and all for one”, Tapko, alongside all other KNX-developers and -manufacturers, exhibits on the KNX-booth -  in order to promote the “common standard for all applications in building automation” especially to the HVAC companies. “In future, we see no place for proprietary solutions in this application area”, sais Petar Tomic, Tapko CEO. He concludes: “established standards assure the success of future efficient solutions.”
TAPKO experiences the development of KNX in this market very positively. Klaus Adler, CEO Tapko, states: “KNX should finally become the basis of integral solutions and manufacturers should be brought to achieve comprehensive building automation by abandoning their proprietary solutions. We look forward to interesting discussions on the fair!”

Using TAPKO hardware components TI designed a KNX thermostat reference design board

Texas Instruments and TAPKO partnered to enable customers to develop KNX building automation solutions in minimum time. To evaluate a ready-for-KNX buildup TI created a thermostat demonstration platform for manufacturers. For an efficient automatic temperature and humidity adjustment it is advantageous to create profile data with use of an MCU. Using our KAIstack media module for interfacing the MSP430 microcontroller to the KNX twisted pair bus enables developers to concentrate on further requirements.

Genuine product premieres: For many visitors the interest of TAPKO´s new products was particularly large focusing the narrowest power supply of its kind, the IPS640, and the IP devices without external power supply, the IP router MECip and the IP Interface UIM KNX IP.
Under the motto "Get together" TAPKO launched on March 16th a fair party. Despite of parallel events in other halls all VIPs and friendly business partners came to TAPKO and partied with DJ Petar until the end. The music, food and networking event was a huge success.

20.10.2015 "25 years KNX Association"

TAPKO congratulates to the anniversary

KNX today is the global standard for building automation. Back when everything started, we spoke of EIB and accordingly the Organization existing then was called EIBA. Much has changed since. TAPKO followed along with every step of today’s successful and globally active KNX Association and some steps were even influenced by Tapko!

The two managing directors of TAPKO Technologies GmbH, Mr. Petar Tomic and Mr. Klaus Adler , were employed at a large building automation  manufacturer  prior to the establishment of their  own company -  so they were familiar from the beginning with building automation with EIB/KNX. Both put considerable expertise into the development of EIB and helped to “baptise” KNX.

TAPKO today offers consulting, KNX development of software and hardware, production in Europe and an accredited KNX Test Lab. Their own range of products is extensive and already enhanced by the pioneering wireless technology. As a longtime member of the KNX Association, TAPKO Technologies wishes: Happy Birthday KNX!
