Wind speed, precipitation, twilight and temperature can be measured and analysed with the new Gira KNX weather station Standard. In addition, three brightness sensors positioned at right angles to each other determine the brightness in different directions. The sensors can analyse data individually or collectively. The weather station is installed on the exterior of the building, for example on the roof, and connected to the KNX system.
Two different limits can be taught in per sensor. A teach-in function allows for adoption of a current measurement value as the limit.
To increase functional reliability, the weather station monitors its own major functions and reports corresponding faults automatically via message objects on the bus. Operation without a 24-V supplementary power supply is possible. In this case, rain detection is deactivated and the corresponding safety objects are continuously activated.
