MDT History

/ ‏‏‎ New branding

In recent years, MDT has noticeably grown as a manufacturer of innovative KNX products. In order to strengthen the brand and support the internationalisation of the company, they have modernised their logo and the entire branding. The fresh design and the modern logo are seamlessly tied to their predecessors and therefore guarantee that the brand will be recognised.

/ ‏‏‎ Extension to the main building

In order to meet the growing demand for KNX products, MDT expanded the company headquarters in Engelskirchen with an extension, which was put into operation in 2019. The new building has increased production and administration capacity by 50%.

/ ‏‏‎ First MDT KNX product range

Since 2009, MDT have exclusively manufactured KNX products. The first range featured XY products. These included binary inputs with integrated logic function – a combination that had not previously existed in any product. Today, they continue to bring new, innovative products to the market.

/ ‏‏‎ New company name

The brand name of MDT working memory was increasingly equated with the company name, which is why MDT decided to officially change the company’s name from MCI to MDT technologies in 2005.

/ ‏‏‎ Flexible working memory production

Computer production was discontinued at the end of 1996. From then onwards, MDT exclusively produced working memory for PCs. During this phase, their extremely flexible production processes were established because the company aimed for an order placed in the morning to be delivered the same evening.

/ ‏‏‎ Foundation

Today, MDT is known as a manufacturer of leading KNX products. However, MDT had already been operating in the electrical and electronics market for more than 25 years before it started producing KNX components. Since their foundation in 1983, they had produced personal computers and working memory trading under the name MCI.

The actuators >>

KNX Switch​ that take up 30% less space in the switch box.

The bigger the KNX system, the more space is needed in the switch cabinet. This means that for planning purposes it is important to accommodate as many functions in as few components as possible. The 20-fold/24-fold Switch Actuators of the MDT AKS series cut space requirements by up to 30% compared with other manufacturers.

KNX Shutter with travel time measurement that cuts installation time

With standard shutter actuators, the travel time for the shade needs to be measured manually and set for each shutter individually. MDT has found a better solution for this and the new KNX Shutter Actuator has an automatic travel time measurement function, which only needs to be activated once when setting up the system. Then the actuator independently measures the travel time for the sun shading for each channel, which makes commissioning much easier for you. Ongoing travel time correction in the background ensures permanent and optimal runtime setting for the shutter motors.

KNX Heating with clear text diagnosis for easy troubleshooting

The MDT Heating Actuator has clear text diagnosis. It displays the current status/error status via a 14 byte object for each channel. This means that errors can be localised quickly and makes commissioning much easier for the system integrator.

KNX Dimming with time-dependent dimming

Energy saving for your customer as in the evening the light is dimmed, meaning that instead of 100% lighting only 20% is used to light the way. This is enough to see where you are going and will not disturb the neighbouring rooms. In the MDT Dimming Actuator, you can save percentage values for the lighting. Either one value each is defined for day/night, or it is possible – and this is only true with MDT – to set up time-dependent dimming.

MDT Push-button with integrated display for quick, individual labelling

When the KNX system is first set up in particular, it is frequently the case that the requirements for the assignment of the push-buttons will change. The associated labelling on MDT displays can be quickly and easily adjusted when changes are made, meaning that the push button displays the new assignment once programming has been carried out. MDT Push-buttons with integrated display are available in both the glass and the plastic range.

MDT Push-buttons reduce the need for additional sensors

KNX Push-buttons are mostly available with an integrated temperature sensor. Some of the sensor products have an integrated brightness sensor or a humidity sensor. Therefore it is not necessary to find additional space for these sensors in the room.

MDT Push-buttons in a timeless design, appropriate for any customer

The plastic range, with its dimensions of 55 mm and 63 mm, fits into most switching programs from leading manufacturers and can therefore be easily integrated into these frames. The MDT Glass Push-buttons are a popular alternative. With their twelve function buttons, they open up a wide range of control options, and their timeless design means that they fit harmoniously into any room.

MDT Motion Detectors recognise the direction of movement

Energy saving for your customers: as it has two sensors, the MDT KNX Motion Detector is able to detect the direction of a movement. This means, for example, the light can be switched off early if a movement towards the exit is detected.

KNX Power Supplies for any project size

No matter how big your project is, MDT have the right KNX Bus Power Supply. Choose from the range from 160 mA to 1280 mA, with or without diagnosis function. For increased reliability, the range also includes redundant KNX power supplies.

KNX Timer Switch for easy programming of various functions

The switching times of the KNX Timer Switch can be easily programmed via the ETS. The automatic holiday calculation also saves you a bit of programming time. In total it is possible to set up 20 channels, for example with the MDT shutter function.

KNX Logic Module for a unique range of functions

MDT Logic Module allows you to choose from 17 different functions, which you can use for the 24 integrated, independent function blocks. This makes your project even smarter.

KNX safety for your projects

With the MDT Safety Module, you are protecting the KNX project against access across the boundary. All commands that are sent from outside are blocked here. In order to block online hackers, the MDT Router and the MDT IP Interface are equipped with KNX Data Secure.

KNX VisuControl App for managing and controlling several smart buildings

The free MDT App can be used to manage up to four VisuControl Object Servers. This provides a central overview and control, for example, for building complexes consisting of up to four parts.

KNX VisuControl Object Server for quick and easy set-up

You can configure MDT Object Server directly in the ETS, it does not require any additional set-up via a visualisation. The display via the MDT App already uses the responsive design, i.e. it adjusts automatically to the smartphone or tablet used and does not require further configuration.

Easy retrofitting with KNX Wireless

With the KNX wireless components, there is no need for breaking work for subsequent cabling. In existing buildings, this means that the products can be easily and quickly retrofitted to modernise the facilities. For example, conventional switches can be replaced with KNX RF+ Push Buttons with integrated 2-fold switching actuator (neutral wire required).

MDT RF+ acts as a repeater

In addition to its normal function, every KNX product from MDT RF+ Wireless range also acts as a repeater. This means that with sufficient wireless products it is possible to build up a stable network.

MDT RF+ is sustainable

MDT RF+ devices are powered from the 230 V grid; we do not use any batteries.
