Desigo Configuration Module (DCM) is in phase-out from 2023-10-31 until the end of 2026.
Desigo Configuration Module (DCM) lets users, who work in sales or project implementation, design the building automation and control system.
See Desigo Configuration Module (CM110752).
DCM is automatically updated with the latest data if installed correctly by using the provided setup program, keeping the suggested installation path, and if an online/network connection is available. The updated data can also be updated regionally or dependent on a user to reflect relevant requirements.
Field of application
DCM calculates the required materials for an installation from raw system data, such as data points, panels, and building and plant structures.
You can use DCM to conduct analysis of variants after defining and completing the installation structure by generating copies and then subsequently changing the hardware specifications. If prices are stored in DCM, you can also compare prices to find the best possible device for the money. You can copy the devices calculated in DCM from the price lists or export them as an Excel file to calculate a bid.
You can enter the data directly into DCM or import it as an Excel file for the automation and Desigo room automation level.
The structure in DCM is hierarchical, but you can customize the structure according to your requirements.
The required software licenses for the selected functions, devices, integrations and data points are calculated on the management level. The licenses are listed and the required software units are calculated.
Calculations can be made for new installations and for upgrades and migration. To calculate upgrades and migration, you can import existing license keys. The import provides the exact installed basis and explicitly allows additional, required licenses and software units.
Devices for the Desigo Web Interface are also determined on the management level. The calculation is based on the number of data points to be integrated in the web interface and by the number of desired touch panels.
Desigo room automation level
The Desigo room automation level lets you create highly complex building structures with the sublevels building, floor, zone, room, and room segment for Desigo room automation.
The required hardware is calculated from the specified functions and/or data points and/or KNX PL-Link and KNX devices. The specification follows a model function set that is then assigned to the structure within the Desigo room automation level. In addition, multiple model function sets can be created in a project and each of them assigned as needed. A structure at the Desigo room automation level may have multiple, assigned model function sets, and a model function set can be assigned to different structures. As Desigo room automation often uses the same structures and functions, you can indicate a multiplier on each sublevel within the Desigo room automation level.
At the automation level you can calculate the required hardware based on specified data points.
You can choose and calculate many variants using presettings. Variants include, e.g., the automation station type or I/O module type, larger automation stations, or if plants are to be distributed among multiple automation stations. You can also consider other criteria, such as available panel sizes.
You can choose solutions with LON and/or KNX. You can choose predefined solutions with drag & drop and then equip them with the required field devices. This way you can create a sample room and replicate it as required.
You can integrate third-party devices with protocols, such as LON, KNX, ModBus, M-bus or OPC, on all levels.
