Arduino EIB/KNX Interface via TP-UART

This is a very first version of an interface between Arduino and EIB/KNX using the TP-UART interface and Arduino library.

Last modified 06.06.2017

Hardware

We leverage Siemens BCU 5WG1 117-2AB12 - for about ~30€

-> Please note: When using an additional power supply galvanic separation between ARDUINO and BCU is necessary.

We leverage ARDUINO MEGA (SERIAL PORT 1)

-> No restrictions on the programming

We leverage ARDUINO UNO (SERIAL PORT)

-> During programming, the BCU may have no connection to the ARDUINO UNO.

-> After programming for communication with the BCU. Connect the jumpers ICSP1 PIN 5 and ICSP1 PIN 6 together, tested only with ARDUINO UNO revision 3.

-> For programming the jumper ICSP1 PIN 5 and ICSP1 PIN 6 must be not connected together and the voltage must be taken away for a short time. Then, you can transfer the new "sketch".

Software (library was tested with IDE 1.0.5-R2 and IDE 1.6.9 by arduino.cc)

The Arduino library is found in the directory KnxTpUart and can be directly placed in Arduino's library folder.

Supported commands / telegram types

All commando (write) to bus :

Bool (DPT 1 - 0 or 1)

knx.groupWriteBool("1/2/3", bool);

4 Bit Int (DPT 3)

knx.groupWrite4BitInt("1/2/3", int);

4 Bit Dim (DPT 3)

knx.groupWrite4BitDim("1/2/3", direction, steps);

1 Byte Int (DTP 5 - 0...255)

knx.groupWrite1ByteInt("1/2/3", int);

2 Byte Int (DTP 7 - 0…65 535])

knx.groupWrite2ByteInt("1/2/3", int);

2 Byte Float (DPT9 - -671 088,64 to 670 760,96 )

knx.groupWrite2ByteFloat("1/2/3", float);

3 Byte Time (DTP 10)

groupWrite3ByteTime("1/2/3", Weekday, Hour, Minute, Second);

3 Byte Date (DTP 11)

groupWrite3ByteDate("1/2/3", Day, Month, Year);

4 byte Float (DTP 14 - -2147483648 to 2147483647)

knx.groupWrite4ByteFloat("1/2/3", float);

14 Byte Text (DTP 16)

knx.groupWrite14ByteText("1/2/3", String);

All commando (answer) to bus :

Bool (DPT 1 - 0 or 1)

knx.groupAnswerBool("1/2/3", bool);

4 Bit Int (DPT 3)

commented out -> knx.groupAnswer4BitInt("1/2/3", int);

4 Bit Int (DPT 3)

commented out -> knx.groupWrite4BitDim("1/2/3", bool, byte);

1 Byte Int (DTP 5 - 0...255)

knx.groupAnswer1ByteInt("1/2/3", int);

2 Byte Int (DTP 7 - 0…65 535])

knx.groupAnswer2ByteInt("1/2/3", int);

2 Byte Float (DPT9 - -671 088,64 to 670 760,96 )

knx.groupAnswer2ByteFloat("1/2/3", float);

3 Byte Time (DTP 10)

knx.groupAnswer3ByteTime("1/2/3", int, int, int, int);

3 Byte Date (DTP 11)

knx.groupAnswer3ByteDate("1/2/3", int, int, int);

4 byte Float (DTP 14 - -2147483648 to 2147483647)

knx.groupAnswer4ByteFloat("1/2/3", float);

14 Byte Text (DTP 16)

knx.groupAnswer14ByteText("1/2/3", String);

Once for all DTP -> commando (read) to bus :

knx.groupRead("1/2/3");

Evaluation telegrams from bus :

Bool (DPT 1 - 0 or 1)

value = telegram->getBool();

4 Bit Int (DPT 3)

value = telegram->get4BitIntValue();

Bool (DPT 3)

value = telegram->get4BitDirectionValue();

1 byte (DPT 3)

value = telegram->get4BitStepsValue();

1 Byte Int (DTP 5 - 0...255)

value = telegram->get1ByteIntValue();

2 Byte Int (DTP 7 - 0…65 535])

value = telegram->get2ByteIntValue();

2 Byte Float (DPT9 - -671 088,64 to 670 760,96 )

value = telegram->get2ByteFloatValue();

3 Byte Time (DTP 10)

value = telegram->get3ByteWeekdayValue();

3 Byte Time (DTP 10)

value = telegram->get3ByteHourValue();

3 Byte Time (DTP 10)

value = telegram->get3ByteMinuteValue();

3 Byte Time (DTP 10)

value = telegram->get3ByteSecondValue();

3 Byte Time (DTP 11)

value = telegram->get3ByteDayValue();

3 Byte Time (DTP 11)

value = telegram->get3ByteMonthValue();

3 Byte Time (DTP 11)

value = telegram->get3ByteYearValue();

4 byte Float (DTP 14 - -2147483648 to 2147483647)

value = telegram->get4ByteFloatValue();

14 Byte Text (DTP 16)

value = telegram->get14ByteValue();
