Practicle Example 2 Blind ControlAutomatic electric blind control systems are considered to be part of the dynamic façade management solution for a building.pdfDownload Blind Control PDF


Controlling the glare and solar radiation entering the building, can result in major savings on internal cooling energy. The saving on mechanical cooling could be up to 40% by reducing the solar gain within the internal space.


  • Glare control improves the internal environment for all occupants.


  • When using PCs and visual display screens, optical comfort must be considered at design stage. This is key now that many buildings have a 90% glass façade.


  • KNX blind control solutions are modular and fully scalable.


  • There are products that can control 230V and 24V blinds along with other more specialist encoder motor systems.


  • Practicle Example 2There are many different products to select depending upon the application and wiring configuration.


  • A key benefit of KNX blind control is that it can sit on the same KNX bus network as the lighting and/or heating control or any other KNX network that may be planned. No single KNX application should be considered as a separate standalone system.


  • There are KNX weather stations, LUX sensors, temperature sensors, solar radiation sensors, wind sensors, rain sensors along with the normal internal sensors such as presence detectors.


  • KNX can be interfaced with many other systems including AV systems and building management systems (BMS).
