Controlmini replacement kit: ABB/Busch-ComfortPanel 8136
The KNX touch panel Controlmini is the perfect alternative to the Busch-ComfortPanel 8136. The modern operating panel can easily display the entire KNX building control system on its generous 11.6-inch Full-HD 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 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 Controlmini is quickly installed in the previous flush-mounted box – without the need for any further chiselling work.
Please note: The Controlmini requires a power supply of 24 V DC/2.4 A. To use the Controlmini in the corresponding flush-mounted box, an additional power supply may be necessary.
Please note: The delivery time is currently 6 weeks.
Controlmini: The reliable KNX Smart Home solution
The Controlmini is a reliable 11.6-inch multi-touch panel with integrated KNX interface, high-quality design, powerful performance and tested industrial components. As an alternative for the ComfortPanel 8136 from Busch-Jaeger, the Controlmini 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 Controlmini can also be used as a status and information display or as an intercom for door communication systems.
The ideal replacement for the Busch-ComfortPanel 8136
The Controlmini is the perfect replacement device for the old Busch-ComfortPanel 8136. 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. Browser applications, e.g. for playing music on external speakers, can also be used via the Controlmini. The flat Controlmini becomes a real eye-catcher in the KNX Smart Home with an individually designed glass cover. Its low installation depth ensures that it can be installed almost flush with the wall without the need for a new flush-mounted box.
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. Thanks to YOUVI and the integrated KNX interface of the Controlmini, the execution of all basic control tasks of a KNX smart home is possible without the need to access an external server or IP router. With the YOUVI modules, the range of functions can be flexibly extended.
