KNX becomes technical specification in Australia and NZ

Standards Australia has adopted KNX, a standard for intelligent building networking, as a technical specification. 

In doing so, Standards Australia acquired key parts of the ISO/IEC 14543-3 standard, under which KNX is already standardised on an international level.

“The standardisation in Australia and New Zealand is another important milestone for us. It is proof of KNX’s future security as a non-proprietary standard and also of the quality of all KNX-certified products,” said Franz Kammerl, President, KNX Association. 

The growth of KNX allows for interoperability and communication ability between KNX products, independence from any hardware and software technology, and the possibility of integration into existing system landscapes.

KNX is already recognised under the European standards CENELEC EN50090 and CEN EN 13321-1, or CEN EN 13321-2, the Chinese standard GB/T 20965 and the US standard ANSI/ASHRAE 135. 

Recognition as a technical specification by both international and national standard and standardisation organisations is the highest distinction for technical innovations, said KNX.
