EIBNODE is the intelligent, decentral and flexible solution for great KNX facilities

    EIBNODE is the intelligent link between the KNX and Ethernet. The gateway couples several KNX lines via Ethernet and provides separate, self-sufficient control functions. Thanks to the Ethernet fast backbone with 100 mbit/s, there is no data jam any more. EIBNODE can be integrated into existing facilities without great work. Because of an amount of special features EIBNODE can be set up as a system coupler anywhere in the classic KNX topology. Even above area couplers and between area and line couplers.

    Functional overview

    Line and area coupler function

    • Fastbackbone with 100 mbit/s
    • Week- und Year timer
    • OPC Interface
    • Adress state table
    • extensive automation module
    • Logic modules
    • 32768 virtual group adresses

    Coupler function

    The EIBNODE couples KNX lines, KNX areas or whole KNX worlds over Ethernet.

    The EIBNODE  allows a backbone speed (Ethernet) with 100 mbit/s.

    • Coupling of KNX lines and
    • KNX areas over fast backbone (100 mbit/sec)
    • Address state table of all KNX group addresses
    • NetBroadcast, global main groups
    • NetID, independently operating of different KNX installations over one network
    • Extensive filter functions (KNX and UDP)
    • Storing of the last 10 000 telegrams


    ActiveX component: a group of technologies that allows software components to communicate with each other in one network not regarding the different programming languages.

    LabView: connection to LabView using a dlf file (dynamic link library) from M.E: Elektronik Innovativ.

    NetxEIB: connection to the NetxEIB software from NETxAutomation.

    NETx Open OPC: Opc server software. Opc server and client can run on the same pc. Very stable in combination with EIBNODE; multi-redundant. The software controls cyclical all connected EIBNODE. Because a memory map of the facility is in each EIBNODE the server can shut down. The facility will still be controlled. And a complex initialisation when the software restarts is not necessary.
