The KNX® Bus in the high seas…

On big ferries KNX® is already partially applied in simple structures but not in the sports boas sector. Here, deep-rooted and long-lived “isolated solutions” can be found in the area of automation that can now be improved considerably by the use of KNX®. The project posed many different challenges such as the contact with extreme conditions (heat, cold, movement, very salty air, strong movements and hits) or the often huge amount of data from the CAN bus or the NMEA system. 

After a two-year planning stage and 8 months of system integration as well as many different approval tests and examinations by SeeBG (ship safety) later, MY KONNEXA is currently the first KNX® yacht for commercial use worldwide that has been equipped with standard modular KNX® packages and that disposes of a licence as exhibition and training yacht in the sport boat sector.
