Elegant, flexible, easy-to-install: the new theLuxa motion detectors from Theben
Theben is successively replacing its previous motion detector product range with the new theLuxa product family. Its new features include not just the name and the unified, elegant design, but, among others, the teach-in function direct on the device, which allows the user to quickly and easily define the light conditions under which the detector should switch on.Motion detector theLuxa
Squaring the circle: The new thePrema presence detectors from ThebenHTS for energy-efficient light and air-conditioning control indoors
ThebenHTS presents the new thePrema presence detector product family designed for energy-efficient, presence-dependent control of lighting and air conditioning. The design resembles a droplet in the course of being formed: clear, round and perfectly shaped. When installed in the ceiling, it is barely noticeable. Its high performance, however, is extremely noticeable.Presence detector thePrema
More modern, more emotional, sharper contours: Theben’s new look
Have you noticed? Our company website at www.theben.de/en and the mobile website at http://m.theben.de/en have a new look. No wonder, because as of now Theben AG is setting new trends in its external image and will present itself with a completely new image in future.More on the new corporate design
Maximum energy efficiency from clear to cloudy: The Theben Meteodata 139 KNX uses weather forecasts to optimise light and climate control
Wouldn’t it be nice to use weather forecasts to, for example, regulate heating control and solar protection in advance, completely automatically, and make energy efficiency savings in the process? No problem with the new Theben Meteodata 139 KNX. Unlike traditional weather stations, which react to the state of the weather, the Meteodata 139 KNX offers a glimpse of the future.More on the Meteodata 139 KNX weather station
Dim LEDs steplessly: Universal dimmer DIMAX 532 plus and DIMAX 534 plus
Save money and help the environment with comfortable lighting – it works. The new universal dimmers from Theben have an extremely low standby consumption of only 0.2 W, soft ON and soft OFF switching that protects your lights and thus extends their service life.Dimmer DIMAX 532 plus and DIMAX 534 plus
Turns night into day: Theben LED spotlight with motion detector LUXA 102-180 LED 32 W
Theben extends the successful LUXA LED spotlight with integrated motion detector series with an additional, powerful light unit. The four LEDs of the LED spotlight LUXA 102-180 correspond to around 230 Watts in a standard halogen spotlight. With a light output of 2000 lumen, the LED spotlight reliably illuminates even larger, commercial areas and turns night into day. Six additional, identically-designed spotlights without motion detector function round out the product range.LED spotlight LUXA 102-180 LED 32 W
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.
