Controlmicro replacement kit: Merten Touch Panel 7
The KNX touch panel Controlmicro is the perfect alternative to the Merten Touch Panel 7. The modern operating panel can easily display the entire KNX building control system on its generous 8-inch high resolution display. In addition to the included YOUVI software, any other Windows- or web-based visualisation can be used for building control. Users thus not only receive an elegant KNX operating device with a higher resolution and larger display compared to the replacement device, but also an appealing visualisation of the home control system. Thanks to the adapter contained in the replacement set, the Controlmicro is quickly installed in the previous flush-mounted box – without the need for any further chiselling work.
Please note: The Controlmicro requires a power supply of 24 V DC/2.4 A. To use the Controlmicro in the corresponding flush-mounted box, an additional power supply may be necessary.

Controlmicro: The reliable KNX Smart Home solution
The Controlmicro is a reliable 8-inch multi-touch panel with integrated KNX interface, high-quality design, powerful performance and tested industrial components. As an alternative for the Merten Touch Panel 7, the Controlmicro also covers all common functions of KNX building control. Thus the states of the most common devices (e.g. light, blinds, heating or dimmer) can be displayed and controlled without any problems. In addition to the area of house and room control, the Controlmicro can also be used as a status and information display or as an intercom for door communication systems.
The ideal replacement for the Merten Touch Panel 7
The Controlmicro is the perfect replacement device for the old Merten Touch Panel 7. It is a full-fledged computer equipped with Windows 10 LTSC, which enables the use of all Windows- and web-based visualisation systems (e.g. Gira QuadClient*, X1, or CubeVision from BAB-Tec). The desired visualisation can be shown on the larger and higher-resolution display without any problems. Or you can use the included visualisation YOUVI, which automatically creates itself from the ETS project and fulfils the highest design demands. In addition, users benefit from the features provided by Windows, such as fast navigation using wiping gestures or eye-friendly operation in the darkened night mode. The preinstalled Windows LTSC reduces maintenance and software problems as no Windows updates are allowed except for security updates. Furthermore, browser applications can be used or any Windows programs can be installed. The high-quality aluminum frame, milled from one piece, is available in matte black with a black front glass or silver in combination with a white front glass. This allows the smart home panel to be ideally adapted to the interior of the room. Its low installation depth ensures that it appears very flat on the wall without the need for a new flush-mounted box.
*as of GIRA Homeserver Version 4.11, only the display in landscape format is supported
YOUVI: The All-in-One package for KNX home control
The YOUVI Basic software package is also included in the scope of delivery. The KNX software includes visualisation, IP router and bus monitor software.

With the YOUVI modules, the range of functions can be flexibly extended.
