Following the release of the new generation of ETS only half a month ago, KNX France took the initiative of organizing a conference in the suburbs of Lyon nearly entirely devoted to the subject of ETS5.
After the KNX President, Mr. de Carné opened the conference, informing the more than 80 attendants on the activities of KNX France, Mr. Napar of Siemens brought more insight into the topic of energy efficiency of buildings, the consequences of French regulations related to this subject matter and the role KNX can play in all of that.
Mr. Demarest, CTO of KNX Association was subsequently invited to report on recent activities of the international organization, the growth figures of the KNX community, the revamped eCampus and Online Shop (now called myKNX) and to explain the technical reasons behind the support of KNX RF S-Mode devices now in the ETS5.
Mr. Klotz from the KNX certified training center of LECS, then dug into the new features of ETS5 in more detail, a presentation that was highly appreciated by the audience and resulted in quite a number of detailed questions: a demonstration was given how with a KNX RF USB, traffic of a mixed TP/RF installation can be monitored, without the need for a physical connection between the installation and the PC.
Seen the success of this conference, immediately the decision was taken to organize more in the course of 2015 in other regions of France.
