That was ISE 2018 - new products and pictures
The Ivory Egg sales team once more supported their key KNX manufacturers at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam, the world´s largest systems integration show. The annual four-day event took place at the RAI Amsterdam in The Netherlands, and hosted again an extensive range of manufacturers from the AV and intelligent building sectors.
NEW PRODUCTS IN THE MARKET
If you didn’t make it to the show, here you’ll find an overview with all you need to know about the latest products. There are several products you should not miss, ask the Ivory Egg team for more information and how you can integrate them in your next project.
BASALTE RELEASE A RANGE OF CRESTRON COMPATIBLE DEVICES
With full Cresnet support the Auro PIR, Sentido Keypads, and the soon to be released Deseo thermostats, allow for full and seamless integration with a Crestron system via the direct Cresnet connections on the products.
The stylish Eve frames have been freed from the wall with this simple yet innovative docking system. This creates the slimmest case and the smallest base available in the market. Shipping from September, watch out for more info on this exciting product range.
Asano M3 and new streaming support
The Asano system continues to grow with a new multi-room amplifier. With 4 x 50w outputs that can be configured in stereo, bridge or mono, plus a digital SPDIF output for third party amplifiers, the M3 is a simple way to expand an Asano system. It also has an optical and stereo input for connecting local sources, such as a TV or Echo Dot and thanks to CobraNet, these inputs are immediately available system wide.
Also released is an update to the S4 music server with full integration of Spotify and Tidal. Basalte is one of the first manufacturers to offer full Spotify integration instead of using Spotify Connect. For the more discerning customer Tidal support brings high fidelity, lossless streaming to the Asano system and with over 25 million tracks available there is plenty to listen to.
ABB LAUNCH TACTEO RANGE OF KEYPADS
The latest range of keypads from ABB feature capacitive touch glass with an elegant white or black finish. The keypads are designed to be labelled and with simple backlighting, the keypads are both simple and stylish. With keypads and a room thermostat, the Tacteo is perfect for a high-end project. There’s also a hotel room solution which can be paired with the DigiValet solutions made for seamless guest control of both services and AV.
LITHOSS OFFICIALLY LAUNCH FLUSH KEYPADS
Using the Select and Squares ranges as a starting point, Lithoss have developed a mounting system allowing these keypads to be mounted perfectly flush with the wall. This creates clean design lines in the building whilst still offering a high level of functionality thanks to the native KNX interfaces. There’s also connection to Crestron making the Lithoss keypads suitable for an even wider range of projects.
INTESIS RELEASE NEW CONTROLLER USING THE INTESIBOX V6 PLATFORM
The changeover to a new hardware and software platform continues with the Mitsubishi AG 150 and Modbus gateways being released. This platform builds on the success of the prior Intesis box series with a processor that is UL certified and has better connection points. The software is now easier to use saving you time and effort on site.
REDFISH LAUNCH KNX SECURE GATEWAY
One of the newest KNX manufacturers, Redfish, had their KNX secure gateway on display. Supporting KNX IP secure on the tunnelling connections, this is one of the first products to take advantage of the new secure standard. And with an impressive 25 connections it leads the way in functionality as well.
