New BACstac V.6.8

Cimetrics is excited to announce a new version of our industry-leading BACnet protocol stack: BACstac 6.8. The Cimetrics BACstac saves man-years of development when your company needs to create a BACnet solution !

Our software team has created a set of BACnet libraries which 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. By purchasing the Cimetrics BACstac solution, we do the compatibility coding and testing. This typically saves man-years of software developer time EVERY YEAR !

What is new in V6.8:

  • This release supports BACnet revision 15 without Network Security (Addendum 2008g) and lighting related functionality (Addendum 135-2010aa, 135-2010i). 

    Seven new BACnet addenda are now supported: Addendum 135-2010ad, 135-2010ae, 135-2010ao, 135-2010ak, 135-2012ar,  135-2012av, 135-2012ax.

Cimetrics is a leader in providing BACnet communication products to OEMs since 1996. BACstac software was the first third-party BACnet implementation in the industry and is now the leading third-party BACnet protocol stack used by many major brands in the HVAC and lighting controls industries world wide.
