The alonco GmbH from Wangen (Allgäu) presents a new building automation solution which is delivered already preconfigured in a ready-to-connect control cabinet. The solution from alonco combines BECKHOFF technology with DALI and SMI and is therefore a cost-effective HIGH-END alternative to KNX. Due to the full integration of the u::Lux Switch the configuration is done automatically. (u::Lux Config is not necessary anymore) The electrician connects the control cabinet and you already operate light, shading or room climate with the u::Lux Switch.
Alonco breaks new ground in planning with the alonco configurator. The smart tool for planners, architects and builders allows the calculation of construction costs and energy values (EnEV). Even performance specifications for electrical systems, heating, ventilation, cooling and shading can be easily planned and calculated.
The entire building and room planning can be managed step by step as well as different construction options and their effects on energetic values and costs.
A planning, created with the alonco configurator, contains the entire turnkey home and building control technology. The ready-to-use preconfigured alonco control cabinet to control shading, light and heating can be easily and fast installed by every electrician.
The range of functions of the alonco system is enormous and thanks to its modular design it is always expandable: Shading, lighting, room climate, ventilation, switchable outlets, complex access systems with video transmission as well as a keyless entry with fingerprint (ekey) have already been realised.
The operation is intuitive through the u::Lux Switches and the alonco control App, available for desktop computer, smartphone and tablet computer (iOS, Android) – of course also with an external access.
The control of the home and building automation is done through the proven and scalable industrial PC solution from Beckhoff, combined with DALI and SMI as well as many supported standards such as Modbus, M-Bus or EnOcean. As a result of the constant development of further bindings the system of alonco is open and future-proof for many other new standards. www.alonco.de
