How to connect Thingworx to KNX or DALI or DALI-2 system?

I am trying to get a solution for Building Management System where the building is using KNX, DALI and DALI-2 protocols for lightings. But I am not sure how to get data from them as these protocols are not listed in Kepware.

Hi @RajatBain,

 

After doing research over the web it would seems this solution building management system could be possible to acquire data from KNX protocols.
It would seem that you need to get all your data in one spot and connect your things.
You can create a data lake out of many individual ponds and ponds can be things or systems.
Data can be real-time and historical.
Once you have Things connected, moving data between Things is possible.
A lake in this context implies Thing connectivity, Thing management, data storage, visibility (modeling) and analysis.
Some areas and systems have no existing sensors or data interfaces.
Protocol gateways can help access closed or complex networks:–LON/KNX gateways, Zigbee-to-Ethernet, MBusto Modbus converters

 

Steps
1.Determine interfaces of existing Things
2.Bridge physical mediums and proprietary/fieldbus protocols with inexpensive gateway devices
3.Add new sensors as needed
4.Establish Thing connectivity using a device connectivity platform (like KEPServerEX®)
5.Connect your connectivity platform to your lake (and connect Things to the lake directly when possible/if advantageous)

 

Hope it helps,

Hi @RajatBain.

 

These protocols do not appear to be supported.
