Company one of four testing centers for BACnet compliance
BACnet International is happy to announce that TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH is now a Recognized BACnet Testing Organization. It is one of four such recognized testing laboratories in the world. TÜV SÜD is a trusted partner of choice for safety, security and sustainability solutions. They specialize in testing, certification, auditing and advisory services.
Recognized BACnet Testing Organizations (RBTOs) conduct BACnet product testing to confirm products’ compliance with the BACnet standard. Their test reports are the basis for BTL Certification and Listing
“Our tests determine whether the BACnet standard has been fully and correctly implemented,” says Christian Bauerschmidt, managing director of TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH. “Successful conformity tests provide product manufacturers with proof that their products are able to communicate properly with independent third parties. The correct implementation of the BACnet protocol is one of the most important prerequisites for ensuring that products from different manufacturers can be integrated smoothly into a building automation system “.
The new Building Automation Laboratory expands the portfolio of product testing and certification services provided by the existing TÜV SÜD Industrie Service Centres of Competence for Refrigeration & Air-Conditioning and Firing & Heating Technology.
As a recognized BACnet test center, TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH is authorized to test the entire spectrum of building automation components, from sensors and actuators to application-specific control devices and freely programmable DDC controllers to control technology with control and operating systems.
“We’ve very happy to welcome TÜV SÜD Industrie Service as the newest BACnet testing organization,” said Andy McMillan, president and managing director of BACnet International. “They share our commitment to raising the quality and conformance of BACnet products available on the market.”
