ABB’s new Busch Pri-On combines intelligence with style 

Simple control of a building's lighting, heating and entertainment functions can now be achieved at the touch of a single button with the launch of ABB's Busch pri-On intelligent control unit. Using the Busch pri-On, building operators or occupants can control and monitor all room functions from a central point, offering a range of new possibilities for hotels, commercial and residential premises.

Adjustment of room functions can be simply achieved by using the Busch pri-On's intuitive rotary knob, enabling manipulation of multiple room functions. The 3.5 inch TFT display screen shows all information in clear text, with symbols representing each room function. To help make individual controls easy to recognise and adjust, each room function corresponds to a different colour - lighting is yellow, blind control is blue, indoor climate-heating is orange and scenes are purple.

A ‘scene save' function allows the user to attribute specific titles to their favourite room settings, which can easily be called up at any time with a single turn of the jog wheel.
This feature is further enhanced by a timer feature, which allows users to program specific settings for certain times of the day. Functions within the timer include an alarm clock plus automated control of heating, lighting and blinds.

Another key feature of the Busch pri-On is its energy management function. Users can see precisely how much energy they are using at a given moment via diagrams on the control panel.

As well as the rotary knob/pushbuttons, the Busch pri-On also includes remote control capability. Provided there is line-of-sight between the panel and the remote control pad, the device can be remotely operated from the comfort of an armchair.

Freely programmable functions, such as light scenes, blind functions or particular lights can also be called up using the Busch pri-On's switch rockers.

The Busch pri-On incorporates 21 languages and is available in four design versions: in gloss white, glass white, glass black and stainless steel with special anti-fingerprint coating. Once installed, the device can be integrated with ABB's i-bus KNX intelligent installation system as a source of control within a building.
