Introducing New BACstacTM 7.0

Introducing New BACstacTM 7.0

Cimetrics is excited to announce a new version of our industry-leading BACnet protocol stack: BACstac 7.0. 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 keeping track of those and implementing changes we typically save man-years of software developer time EVERY YEAR!

The BACstac products include over 30 code examples that you can use to speed development.

Scalability:
- One BACnet device in the BACstac database can contain thousands of BACnet objects.
- A BACstac gateway application can emulate thousands of BACnet devices.
- A BACstac-based client application can poll over 10,000 BACnet devices in parallel.

Check out the different versions of BACstac Cimetrics offers.*

*The features of BACstac 7.0 differ from the features of uBACstac (B1150) and BACstac/DN (B1070, B1080).

What is new in BACstac 7.0:

  • This release supports BACnet protocol revision 18. Most optional functionality of revision 18 is also supported with some exceptions.
  • This release adds the following addenda: 2010aa, 2012au, 2012az, and 2012at (which include 3 new BACnet object types: Lighting Output, Channel, and Binary_Lighting_Output; and one new service: WriteGroup). This release also includes a few improvements to the Network Port object type.

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 worldwide.
