B.link is a DIN rail module that integrates infrared and serial RS232 IP-modules with KNX.
With B.link it becomes possible to control any IR or Serial RS232 device with KNX. CD players, tuners or digital set top boxes, all become part of the Asano system.
B.link can be combined with up to 16 B.link flex modules that communicate over IP and can be placed anywhere in the house. To each B.link flex, you are able connect up to 3 IR transmitters using a splitter or a single Serial RS232 cable. Power for the B.link flex is provided over Ethernet.
As a bonus, up to 3 surround receivers can be integrated directly over IP. With B.link, source selection and volume control with full feedback can be controlled with KNX commands.
B.link supports receivers from Pioneer, Marantz, Integra, Onkyo and Denon.
B.link comes with a configuration tool that allows you to program macros that include sending out KNX commands in combination with IR and serial commands so that you can create powerful welcome and goodbye scenarios.
B.link has two LAN ports with integrated switch for daisy chaining.
