Are you looking for an optimal operator workstation (OWS) or building management system (BMS) for your non-proprietary building automation with BACnet? Then you may benefit from the varied B-CON functions tailored for BACnet and our 15 years of experience gained in hundreds of BACnet projects.
“Building Automation and Control Networks”, or BACnet, is a globally standardized communications protocol. It is particularly suitable for creating manufacturer-independent building automation systems. By now, virtually all vendors of proprietary automation stations are offering interfaces to BACnet or use BACnet for communication at the management level.
A special feature of BACnet is that all of the information and functions related to an object are transmitted in a BACnet object. In practice, this means for example that a temperature value is displayed together with alarm parameters like the upper and lower threshold, the alarm status, etc., instead of transmitting this information in separate data points without the actual value.
Another special feature is that BACnet objects and all their properties can be accessed easily via the network. This ensures that no information is lost between the programming of the automation stations and the setup of the management stations. This is a key function in the construction process, in particular with regard to Building Information Modeling (BIM).
Even though the “Building Automation and Control Network”, or BACnet, is a globally standardized communication protocol, many proprietary vendors of automation systems use BACnet only to create dependencies by adding functionalities outside the standard. For this reason, various organizations have begun to specify how exactly automation systems under BACnet should be implemented so that in the end, all of the relevant information and functions are available to everybody. B-CON enables you to support all conformity requirements, in particular those by the workgroup on machinery and electrical engineering of German national and municipal administrations (AMEV, Arbeitskreis Maschinen- und Elektrotechnik). In practice, B-CON allows you to benefit from
Your primary benefits from using BACnet and B-CON are:
