MECtp / MECtp-secure

One TP Line Coupler Device for all kinds of KNX TP Interconnection

Basic functionality of the line coupler MECtp is coupling a KNX TP main line to a KNX TP subline providing a galvanic isolation between both TP bus lines connected.
Due to flexibility the MECtp coupler can be used as KNX line coupler, as KNX backbone coupler, as KNX area coupler or as KNX line repeater.
The 6 duo-LED display shows accurately the filtering condition as well as bus status and telegram traffic on each line. 

MECtp-secure supporting KNX Secure

TAPKO presents the Line/Area Coupler MECtp-secure as first system component supporting KNX Secure. Its ability to process secured telegrams guarantees safe commissioning. Being particularly important for couplers and routers, the configuration communication is protected. To prevent access to the main line, MECtp-secure can block device oriented messages from the subline. The function button, originally introduced by TAPKO for temporary deactivation of message filtering, is further improving the comfort and reliability of this device.

  • On activiation the MECtp temporarily switches to individually-configured filtering conditions.
  • Galvanic isolated KNX bus lines
  • Suppression of device configurations from subline to main line while full access from main line to subline
  • Configurable one-button activation of special functions, e.g. transmit all Group telegrams (useful during commissioning, automatic reset after a dedicated time, max. 8h)
  • Bus status (traffic, errors, filter) on each line are accurately shown by six duo-LEDs
