BMA'S BACnet Testing Laboratories Completes First Phase of Customer Product Testing

Securing Buildings News

contemporary Boston, Massachusetts,:- February 20, 2002: The BACnet Testing Laboratory (BTL) recently completed the initial phase of BACnet interoperability testing. Application specific controllers, smart sensors, and smart actuators made by Alerton Technologies, Automated Logic, Delta Controls and Teletrol passed the tests and will be listed on the BACnet Manufacturers' Association (BMA) web site. Listing means the products passed an extensive suite of tests designed to check compliance with the ASHRAE/ANSI BACnet specifications and interoperability with other BACnet products. Preparations are already underway to test more BACnet products later in the year.

About BACnet BACnet (Building Automation Control Network) is an ASHRAE and ANSI standard protocol for achieving interoperability in building systems. Non-proprietary interoperability provides flexibility for the design and configuration of systems, and promotes competitive bidding. BACnet is ideal for use with medium to large-sized systems in multi-building sites to implement integration with central plant equipment, and for integration between different building systems. BACnet was developed by ASHRAE with the cooperation of almost every major manufacturer of building automation and control equipment.

About BMA The BACnet Manufacturers Association is an organization formed to encourage the successful use of BACnet in building automation and control systems through interoperability testing, educational programs, and promotional activities. BMA membership is open and includes companies involved in the design, manufacturing, installation, commissioning and maintenance of control equipment that uses BACnet for communications. For more information and questions about membership, contact the BMA at
