Siemens has expanded the offering from its KNX Gamma building control range with the release of the second generation of the KNX Touch Control TC5 panel.  

Building on the success of its award-winning predecessor, the new version retains the elegant and modern design, but offers a number of new features, further improving the aesthetics and the intuitive operating concept.  

The five-inch aluminium and glass panel device is available in a black or white finish and can be mounted in portrait or landscape orientations, making it suited to an even wider range of applications.   

With its updated firmware, the TC5 offers the potential to operate as an all-in-one KNX room control device, with multiple pages to enable configuration of all desired room functions through the ETS software, including the display of data gathered by external sensors.

And this software also allows numerous settings, such as the three different options for temperature display on the homepage: internal sensor, external sensor, or alternating every five seconds.
