* Increased flexibility due to ability to integrate Modbus devices in KNX or BACnet systems
Remember, the standard development organization of BACnet was ASHRAE, and almost the entire standard was originally written with HVAC systems in mind.
BACnet, ASHRAE's building automation and control networking protocol, was designed to foster efficient and working communication for building automation and control systems.
Industrial control system (ICS) security experts have long warned that common BAS protocols that include BACnet and Modbus, among others, are dangerously susceptible to cyber- intrusion.
Key topics expected to discuss as part of the event includes the evolution of BACnet from HVAC into other areas, as well as the protocol's impact on sustainability and green buildings.
The industry standard Building Automation Control Network (BACnet) protocol is used in nearly all major building automation systems (BAS).
* Extension of BACnet capabilities to new applications.
By using open communication protocols, such as BACnet or LonWorks, HVAC, lighting, life safety, access, security and other building system control devices can interoperate, enabling facility owners to achieve improved energy efficiency.
Since BACNET (Building Automation Control Network) is a connectionless protocol, the need for message segmentation and end-to-end error checking is much less than in a connection-based protocol.
In this study, simulation models of the three most commonly used BACnet local area networks (LANs) were developed.
The MatrikonOPC Server for BACnet provides real-time data access between OPC systems and building automation system devices supporting the international building automation protocol BACnet (Annex J compatible devices).
