BACnet at Light+Building 2018


Dortmund, 4th September, 2017. – BACnet will present itself at the next Light+Building from 18-23 March 2018 in a brand new environment. At the OPEN BUILDING AUTOMATION market place in Hall 9.1, the world's leading providers will be displaying the interoperability of tomorrow. BACnet is assuming a central role amid further pioneering standards. Top themes such as the migration of building automation to IoT technologies and 20 years of BACnet in Europe will be included in the joint presentation programme.


Building automation and control technology are in a state of rapid change. IoT-driven offers are competing with traditional solutions. Increasing diversity! This is extremely satisfying for users looking for new perspectives – for the digitalisation of their properties and for the Internet as a communication platform. Word of the interoperability between the standards is spreading.


New perspectives for BACnet and the entire sector
Whereas previously the open networking within building automation maximised investment security, today potential cost reductions and new synergies between the building, energy, IT, transmission and industry systems are highly sought after. Progress in building information modelling (BIM), with wireless technologies and at the interface with industrial automation, is creating new perspectives for BACnet and the sector as a whole.

The BACnet stand is being organised by MarDirect for the BACnet Interest Group Europe (BIG-EU). Supported by Messe Frankfurt, the OPEN BUILDING AUTOMATION market place is a joint venture between MarDirect and TEMA AG. Contact: bruno.kloubert(at)mardirect.de
