Building automation with Sallegra®
The Sallegra® automation system is set up with the Sallegra® configurator at a central point in the system, the Sallegra® automation controller, where all the threads come together. For additional fail-safety, however, it is also possible to distribute the automation to several controllers, just as you wish.
Working with the Sallegra® Configurator can be learned in no time, as it is controlled via an easy-to-understand graphical programming interface. With just a few clicks, you can map the physical automation and link it to the logical functions. Another advantage is that you already have easy-to-follow documentation that you can print out during programming. Existing KNX projects can also be easily imported at any time.
Sallegra® Multitouch displays are real all-rounders which do not even have to be programmed. Equipped with only a few network parameters, they communicate with the Sallegra® automation controllers and build the corresponding visualization themselves. This means that no servicing and maintenance is necessary.
The system is currently the only system worldwide where the user can set all the required device parameters himself – no special software for the definition of scenarios is required as this is all done by the visualization.
The Sallegra® automation system currently supports the following field bus systems:
- Sallegra® IP sensors and actuators
- Sallegra® 2-wire bus
- and many more
Sallegra® is pre-integrated for the entire product range of Satelco AG and René Koch AG, which means that hardware from our group of companies does not need to be reintegrated and tested for each customer.
This enables fast and trouble-free planning and installation at the end customer.
The Sallegra® building automation system has a wide range of applications that can be scaled to the smallest detail: from mini systems with a single actuator to industrial applications with thousands of actuators and numerous functions and subsystems – everything can be configured individually and tailored to the precise requirements.
Thus Sallegra® is as versatile as a Swiss Army Knife.
- Sallegra® Universal Dimmer
- Sallegra® Relay Module (12-way and 4-way)
- Sallegra® Input Module (digital and analog)
- Sallegra® Automation Controller (Light, Entry and Professional)
- Sallegra® Multitouch Panels (7" - 10")
Therefore, system planning with Sallegra® is particularly simple and clear.
Unfortunately, other systems are often more complex and elaborate, making them more difficult to use. Sallegra® is an open system hardware, which is used in many areas (open HTML and SNMP protocol). Sallegra® actuators and IO's can be configured via a browser without any software.
Another advantage that should not be underestimated: The system has an excellent price-performance ratio, making it interesting even for hobbyists to deal with building automation. (approx. 2500 CHF entry level for a small single family home)
A factor not to be underestimated is that the entire Sallegra® IO’s can be easily addressed in various ways with an open protocol:
- via scripts (Windows / OSX / Linux ... )
- via browser and HTML
- via Automation software (XML / SNMP)
- via browser directly from the interface
Thus the Sallegra® IO’s can also be used without any difficulty by other manufacturers and automation systems.
