This BACnet protocol stack (SDK) is used by MANY leading building automation companies, and numerous BTL-listed products have the BACstac inside.
Customers say..."It would have taken us MANY man-years of ongoing development if we didn't go with your solution... our engineers and management made the right decision !"
More than 150 manufacturers are registered members of the BACnet community. This group includes prestigious companies like Siemens, Honeywell, Secom, JVC, Trane, Eaton/Cutler Hammer, KMC Controls, LG Electronics, Priva, Loytec, Matsushita, Matrikon, Mitsubishi, Samsung, Trend, Wago, and many more.
ALL of these companies mentioned use the Cimetrics BACstac !
Our role in the industry is to keep these well known companies UP-TO-DATE with the latest BACnet features and to make sure that this code is compatible with the ENDLESS Windows changes.
The Cimetrics BACstac saves “man-years” of development when your company needs to create a BACnet solution !
The BACnet standard is a 600 page book that is a challenging assignment for even the most skilled computer programmers. There are concepts in the HVAC and BUILDINGS INFRASTRUCTURE world that are just not taught in computer school. These differences between BACnet and traditional IT protocols can lead to a significant learning curve when starting from scratch.
Our software team has created a set of BACnet libraries when greatly simplify the task of interfacing to BACnet. Even the largest companies in the HVAC industry use our code because it is a very complex and time consuming task keeping up with the ongoing changes that are taking place in the BACnet committees. For example, many hundreds of protocol modifications, requirements, and enhancements have taken place in just the past year !
And then there is Microsoft... everyone knows that the number of operating systems released by Microsoft has increased dramatically. If you sell applications that combine a PC using the Windows OS and BACnet then you will need to do extensive testing oe Win XP, Vista, Win 7, Server 2003, Server 2005, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2 and 32 bit vs. 64 bit ! By purchasing the Cimetrics BACstac solution, we do the compatibility coding and testing ! This typically saves man-years of software developer time EVERY YEAR !
