BACnet inside

The new reference catalogue of the BACnet Interest Group has arrived

Dortmund, May 2nd, 2016 – BACnet, the open communication protocol for “Building Automation and Control Networks” has been the standard for building automation in large properties, for example hospitals and airports, for over 20 years. Equally as large is the number of completed BACnet projects. In their new Reference Catalogue 2016, the BACnet Interest Group Europe (BIG-EU) presents from various areas 199 projects whose building automation solutions have been realized on the basis of the open BACnet standard.


The characteristics of these projects show the multifaceted ways in BACnet can be implemented for efficient and sustainable building operation. The list of buildings reaches from the Hotel Atlantis – The Palm in Dubai to the summit station at the top of the Zugspitze to the Frankfurt Airport. Office and commercial buildings, exhibition halls, sport and recreational facilities and even hospitals are all equally represented. And the catalogue also reveals that the spectrum of providers who offer BACnet solutions is broad: nearly all 125 members of the BIG-EU are represented in the catalogue.

The 76 page strong print version can be ordered for free through the BIG-EU Office (info(at)big-eu.org). A digital edition of the Reference Catalogue is already available in the Downloads area of the Service page (http://www.big-eu.org/fileadmin/downloads/160307_Referenzkatalog_BACnet.pdf).
