Theben ToGo: The mobile website m.theben.de/en for when you're on the move
Since 02. January 2013 alongside the traditional website, Theben has made a mobile variant for smartphones and tablets available to its customers. Product information, technical data and operating manuals can be quickly and easily accessed at http://m.theben.de/en from the construction site or on the move.Mobile website http://m.theben.de/en
Additions to the family: PlanoCentro presence detectors for large offices and training rooms
Theben supplements the current PlanoCentro product family (PlanoCentro and PlanoCentro KNX) with new three-channel presence detectors. The Theben PlanoCentro 201 offers an additional presence channel for energy-efficient HVAC control of classrooms, seminar rooms, offices or hotel rooms, among others. If no one is in the room, the presence detector turns off the light and powers down the heating and ventilation control. The Theben PlanoCentro 300 uses an additional light channel for presence-dependent control of a third light group, for example to light up a whiteboard in classrooms.PlanoCentro 201 and 300 presence detectors
Steplessly dim LEDs with the new KNX dimmer actuators from Theben
Light elements such as LEDs, halogen and energy saving lamps can be dimmed steplessly with the new KNX universal dimmer actuators from the MIX2 series. Optimised dimming curves provide - depending on the particular light element - harmonious, stepless dimming behaviour.Dimming actuators and dimming boosters in MIX2 range
Tried and tested further improved: Meteodata 140 GPS KNX weather station with anemometer
The new Meteodata 140 GPS KNX weather station from Theben not only provides multiple functions such as brightness, wind, temperature and rain measurement. And it also looks good: The facade colour shows through its transparent housing and the weather station fits in perfectly with every background.Meteodata 140 GPS KNX weather station
Weekly, yearly and Astro program: The new 8-channel KNX time switch TR 648 top2 RC KNX from Theben
Theben presents the new quartz 8-channel KNX time switch TR 648 top2 RC KNX: Weekly, yearly and Astro program are programmed via the text-based user instructions in the display, via the KNX bus or on a PC with the help of the intuitive OBELISK top2 PC software.More on the digital KNX time switch TR 648 top2 RC KNX
Minimal size – maximum effect: Theben LED spotlight LUXA 102-140 LED with integrated motion detector
The new LED spotlight LUXA 102-140 LED with motion detector stands out due to its incredibly compact size and high light output. The minimal standby energy consumption of just 0.3 W at standby speaks for itself. The LED spotlight LUXA 102-140 LED with motion detector for outdoors is available in two versions: with the choice of one LED spotlight or two LED spotlights.LUXA 102-140 LED with integrated motion detector
Theben: The experts for motion detectors, KNX building systems technology and much more
KNX makes life easier
KNX building systems technology makes building control more convenient, easier and more environmentally friendly. From lighting and environmental control in public buildings and private accommodation or fully automatic sun protection. KNX from Theben is the solution for energy-efficient building control and smart homes.
Lighting and climate control with KNX
KNX presence detectors such as the award-winning design PlanoCentro monitor areas of up to 100m2 and, in contrast to motion detectors, are able to detect the slightest movements, such as typing on a keyboard. At the same time, the presence detector measures the intensity of natural light. The light level in a room can be controlled to a preset brightness level, or if the presence detector no longer registers movement the lights can be turned off. Heating can also be controlled as required via presence detectors and KNX: For example, if all the students have left a classroom, the temperature can be automatically reduced by 2 degrees and the lights are switched off. That drastically reduces operating costs. In the case of heating, it does not matter if you are controlling underfloor heating or a traditional radiators, Theben KNX can control both.
KNX weather station for fully-automatic sun protection
But KNX is capable of more: A KNX weather station allows blinds and shutters to be controlled automatically. The sun protection for each facade is controlled separately depending on the position of the sun. At wind speeds above 8 m/s, awnings and blinds are raised automatically, thus protecting them from damage in event of a sudden storm when nobody is at home.
Visualisation on KNX multi-function display
All functions of the KNX system can be read, set and corrected as required via the VARIA 826 KNX multi-function display. Individual room heating control is equally possible as the setting of individual light scenes in living rooms, corridors or children's rooms via the text-based guidance on the large display. Group functions, also called scenes encompass light and temperature settings and are easy to call up with the press of a button. The VARIA 826 KNX was awarded the red dot Award 2009 for its elegant design.
Via a central OFF function, the KNX system ensures that all important devices are switched off when you leave the house. It can be remotely controlled via the Internet or telephone at anytime. Only KNX building systems technology offers such high levels of integrated comfort and control.
Motion detectors – for energy-efficient lighting control
It doesn't matter if you are looking for a motion detector for internal or external use, for wall or ceiling mounting or whether it should cover a detection area of 110° or 360°: At Theben you will find the ideal motion detector to meet your individual requirements.
Motion detectors for external use
Our motion detectors provide more security in external areas (IP 55): If they detect movement, they always switch on the light. A function that has an effect on uninvited guests: What burglar wants to be put under the spotlight? It doesn't matter if you're near home in your car or if you are outside your front door – creep under protection detects movement right under the installed motion detector and it never leaves you in the dark. The horizontally and vertically adjustable sensor head allows the detection area to be set as required. With the help of different segment discs, it is possible to further refine the detection area of the motion detector and it avoids unnecessary operation.
Motion detectors for internal use
Whether it's hotel corridors, staircases or cellars light provides security. Especially in areas you are unfamiliar with or in areas where you don't have an empty hand to operate the light switch, motion detectors can be a great help. Wide as the range of applications is for motion detectors, they all have one thing in common: They provide more security, lower energy costs and reduce CO2 emissions. However motion detectors can do much more. A second output allows the connection of environmental control. The individually adjustable time delay controls, for example, how long a fan should stay on in a bathroom after the room is vacated.
Innovation and quality "Made in Germany"
With around 700 employees, including 550 in Haigerloch, five subsidiaries in Europe and branches in over 50 countries worldwide, Theben is one of the global leaders in the production of KNX building systems technology, lighting control,climate control and time control.
In addition to our original core expertise in the area of "time control", we have been a member of the "KNX Association" since 1992 and have made a significant contribution to establishing KNX as a globally-recognised standard in building systems control. The merger with the inventors of the presence detector – the Swiss company HTS in 2007, enabled us to extend and reinforce our expertise in the area of presence detectors, motion detectors and lighting control.
Our in-house testing laboratory, authorised by the VDE institute, enables us to thoroughly test Theben products from the initial idea, through development to the production stage. A 100% final inspection in production ensures that there are no unpleasant surprises after distribution.
