The KNX/EIB cable is a European installation BUS fieldbus cable suitable for use in KNX systems, formerly known as EIB, by KONNEX™. It forms part of 'green' building control systems and intelligent building technology, improving comfort levels whilst reducing carbon footprint and running costs. The applications include the operation and control of heating, lighting and air conditioning to respond to changing internal or external conditions.
The KNX/EIB cable works on the standardised OSI network communications protocol, succeeding EHS, BATIBUS and EIB. With its excellent electrical and shielded transmission performance, KNX/EIB cables can be used for data transmission and to connect building technology systems, allowing the operation and control of lighting and climate control. They can be deployed both in private houses and public places (where a Flame-Retardant, Non-Corrosive Low Smoke Zero Halogen (FRNC-LSZH) sheath is recommended).
The intelligent building control applications can deliver cost-savings and environmental offset for greener buildings.

||Solid copper wire
||Polyester tape (PET)
||Aluminium / Polyester tape (Al/PET)
||Tinned copper wire
||Flame retardant - Polyvinyl Chloride (FR-PVC)
KNX/EIB cables have a layout in quad (2 pairs) in order to offer reduced external dimensions. This range is available with a galvanised steel wire armour and a duct grade tough polyethylene (PE) waterproof outersheath.
In addition to the standard green, this cable is available in white for internal applications.
