Course: BACnet 2023

This training course is specifically directed to all parties involved in planning and specifying buildings, but is also important to system integrators to understand the requirements. The course will be arranged in Oslo, February 15th-16th 2023

The world of building automation speaks BACnet

BACnet (Building Automation and Control Networks) is a communication protocol specifically designed for building automation applications. Since the first issue in the year 1995 BACnet has become a world-wide standard and is continuously maintained and updated in the ASHRAE committee SSPC-135.

BACnet becomes more and more important in private and public buildings. Connecting devices from different manufacturers requires a precise specification though.

In this course you will learn the basic elements: Networks, Objects and Services and the advanced functionality areas alarming, scheduling and trend-logging. Furthermore you learn how to specify BACnet in tenders to get the best possible interoperability. Network Security using the latest approach BACnet/SC will be introduced as well.

Program for both days (PDF):

February 16th | 08:30-15:30 | TOPICS OF THE DAY:

Specifying BACnet in tenders
BACnet is not Building Automation!
Building Automation as the basis for interoperable communication
Why it is important to specify BACnet as detailed as possible
Documents to support project-designers specifying tenders (NIST-IR 6392, AMEV, KBOB)
Comparing devices: Manufacturer’s declaration “PICS” and “Epics”
The role of certification, BTL-mark and the ongoing BACnet update process
Conformance testing, what does a certificate cover, what does it not cover?
Working with the “BIBBs” BACnet Interoperability Building Blocks
Presentation on the device profiles
Responsibilities in multi-vendor projects

Network Security in building automation systems
Why network security matters
Don’t do’s when connecting BACnet network through the internet
