USB Interface Connection for PC and KNX TP

KNX TP Interface to access KNX Bus Devices via USB

The KNX USB interface UIMtp establishes a bi-directional data connection between PC and KNX bus. The interface device enables addressing of every bus device in the KNX bus system. With the UIMtp even network configurations become less time-consuming.

The USB connector is galvanically isolated from the KNX bus. Communication between the UIMtp and the devices connected to the bus is handled via the flexible common EMI protocol. This protocol is designed for actual and future applications. Standard software like ETS, EITT (and others) is handled by the FALCON driver.

The UIMtp supports long telegrams and ensures easy software handling also under operating systems that the FALCON driver doesn´t support (e.g. Linux). For specific diagnostic applications like EITT the UIMtp supports the "Raw Frame" operating mode. Due to HID profile support no specific USB driver is required.
