The Cimetrics BACstac (BACnet Protocol Stack, BACnet Stack) is the leading 3rd party BACnet protocol stack (SDK) with a customer list that includes many well-known brands in the HVAC, lighting control and physical access control industries world wide.
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. This typically saves man-years of software developer time EVERY YEAR!
BACnet/SC makes it much easier to create secure and standardized BA infrastructure that is fully compatible with existing BACnet deployments, friendly to IT best practices, and that enables cloud-based applications.
From an IT perspective, BACnet/SC solves many common problems:
* BACstac/32 supports Gateways with Virtual Devices only for Protocol Revision 16 or below. You can build a Gateway with one Device for Protocol Revision 17 - 19. Cimetrics Windows and Linux BACstac products have full support for gateways that employ virtual devices and virtual networks.
