Testbed for KNX devices

in categories Home Automation

For creating my RoomSensor i have build a testbed for KNX Devices.

KNX testbed

It consists of:

  • MDT 160 mA KNX power supply
  • eibmarkt USB to KNX interface
  • Busch Jaeger
  • ABB 4
  • TPUART2 Evaluationboard

The base board is designed to fit into an Systainer Size 1. This has the advantage that i can take the testbed with me and use it also for openhab demos. Systainer open

If you like to mill a base board for a Systainer Size 1, you can get the Rhino 3D drawing, of the exported dxf.

TPUART Evalboard mounted

It is also the first time i have created a label for the pins used on the TPUART2 evaluation board. You can get the Rhino 3D drawing here and use it as a base for your own labels.

The connection between the evalboard and the breadboard is done by one of my breadboard adapters.
