I’d like your advice on setting up a basic KNX interface.
I had some KNX devices I would like to repurpose and for that I wanted to control a number of KNX actuators through an ABB IPS/S3.1.1 IP interface.
In ETS6, I did a basic setup with building/floor/room/cabinet/…
In there I added the ABB IPS/S3.1.1 IP interface (which had the ip address from my DHCP server: 192.168.2.183)
The IP Interface is powered via PoE.
When making any type of connection to the IP Interface or downloading my settings using this device, I get this error.
However the IP Interface is recognized as a Bus interface
Thank you for your suggestions.
As the IPS/S3.1.1 has no web UI I first tried to reset the device.
Which I believe was successfull as before the name of the device was blank. Now it says IP Interface as it should (mentioned in the docs)
The Solution is to connect the KNX + & - to an KNX powersupply AND to connect the power of the IP-Interface over a second Powersupply (it can be a simple one with 12V-30V you don’t need a second KNX Powersupply) or you can use the PoE connection.
