PLC – WAGO & DIVUS natural symbiosis

In the very competitive world of automation we are being bombarded by different options and different solutions. There are solution coming out more from AV solutions – focusing on software and server solutions (Crestron, Savant) or engineering solutions (KNX Bus, WAGO PLC, BUSING) – implementing integration through detailed settings on lighting, heating, alarm control (with possible extensions to other systems).

In all of that spider of marketing campaigns, small and big battles between main players we being normally left being confused which way to go. This question applies equally to engineer, contractor and end user.

At Home of Technologies (HoT) we carried recently extensive study and researches comparing systems and fining, other that end user taste, ultimate key to approach your project.

Our technical team assessed 20 of projects – from small residential (5 bedroom) to medium commercial (5 floors – 80 offices) across supplied by us systems/solutions.

We looked equally to aesthetics and practicality of the solutions with reference to efficiency of the budget.

Our criteria were measured in scale 0-5 and outcome was measured as average in points. We focused on following categories: functionality, time for integration, multi-platform interactions, software/application adjustment options, price, future proof, expansion/alteration options. Within those 7 categories tested exposed some minor and unexpected issues. On position 1 we found Wago PLC Controler 750-849, position 2 Crestron, position 3 KNX, position 4 BUSing Ingenium, position 5 Savant with overall score 4.7, 4.4, 4.1, 3.4 and 3.1 respectively.

Based on this research we created our own solution – friendly for End User and Integrator – with wide range of engineering & building applications based on WAGO PLC 750 controller, range of 0-10V dimming modules, relays and contactors, and all in conjunction with DIVUS KNX/Door Entry server. That unique solution in comparison with rest of tested systems proved to save from 22-45% on average cost of your ‘control components’, win 25% more contract on user friendly interface and showed far going flexibility in interaction with Crestron, Control4 and other AV components (just free of charge android app and typing IP address of your Crestron, Control 4 server and your content with visualisation is on your DIVUS touch screen).

WAGO and DIVUS came to our regular solution for any size of the project with any type of lighting, heating and AV. For KNX integrator we supply complex cabinet with all component inside and electrical termination diagram – based on your project requirement. Along with the box you will receive XML file which you import to ETS4 and all your desired group objects appear in your project – all you need to do is to drag dedicated group objects to your group addresses. All we need is your specification and project drawings – PDF or AutoCad.
