ENSURE BACNET CONFORMITY OF YOUR PRODUCTS FROM AN EARLY STAGEBacnet Building Automation Systems

Building automation is crucial for the efficient and sustainable management of buildings and real estate and for ensuring the required connectivity. Smooth and standardised communication between all components of building automation systems is essential for this technology to succeed. The BACnet communication protocol makes it possible. The BTL logo (BTL = BACnet testing laboratory) and a BACnet conformity certificate in accordance with ANSI/ASHRAE 135 (DIN EN ISO 16484-5) provide proof that communication between the components also works in practice. Our recognized BACnet testing laboratory will be happy to help you fulfil the relevant criteria.

recognized BACNET TESTING LABORATORY

As a BTL-recognised BACnet testing laboratory, we can assess all components of building automation systems for their BACnet conformity, irrespective of whether the products have been developed for field, automation or management level. We offer support for all functional devices, from sensors and actuators to application-specific controllers (B-ASC, B-AAC), freely-programmable systems DDC (B-BC) and management and operation equipment (B-AWS or B-OWS).

The ANSI/ASHRAE 135.1 (DIN EN ISO 16484-6) standard defines the test method to ensure tests are comparable and reproducible. Following successful completion of testing, you will receive a test report. Manufacturers can submit this test report to BTL, the umbrella organisation that oversees testing and certification carried out by the BACnet testing laboratories. Once formal review of your documentation has been completed with success, you receive a BTL certificate which proves that your product is in conformity with all relevant requirements of the standard. The certificate also entitles you to affix the BTL logo to your product. In addition, BTL will include the device in its Listing of Tested Products. For more detailed information about the certification process, see below.

WHY IS BTL CERTIFICATION OF YOUR PRODUCTS WORTHWHILE?

Although not mandatory, BTL certification of your BACnet products in accordance with ANSI/ASHRAE 135 (DIN EN ISO 16484-5) gives you significant advantages over your competitors. For instance, it provides you with a third-party quality certificate which enables you to demonstrate the high quality of your products to your customers. Calls for tender for (public) real estate construction projects increasingly require equipment to bear the relevant BTL logo. Depending on the project, you may also have to furnish further evidence, such as AMEV attestations issued by the Mechanical and Electrical Working Party of National, Regional and Local Authorities (AMEV). These attestations are based on third-party conformity certification carried out by an recognized BACnet testing laboratory.

BACNET PRODUCT TESTING OF COMPONENTS FOR BUILDING AUTOMATION SYSTEMS – OUR SERVICES

  • Product testing of your BACnet-enabled components (controllers, sensors, actuators, management-control units) to ensure their conformity with the
    ANSI/ASHRAE 135 (DIN EN ISO 16484-5) or ANSI/ASHRAE 135.1 (DIN EN ISO 16484-6) standards;

  o Product testing throughout the design and development stage (pretest). By offering pretesting, we support you right from the design and development stage with appropriate partial tests. These tests are also based on the standard. However, in contrast to conformity assessment (full test), they save time and money in case of non-conformities as products need not undergo repeated conformity assessments in a laboratory.

  o Comprehensive support in the preparation of the EPICS of your product as one of the criteria of the future BACnet assessment and certification process.

  o Conformity assessment of the implemented BACnet protocol for completeness according to the standard.

  o Support during the total BTL testing and certification process.

  • Integration tests for additional operator requirements that go beyond the BACnet standard (e.g. AMEV).

Our certification and assessment services are provided under our accreditation by the German national accreditation body (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle, DAkkS) as a test laboratory (D-PL-14153-04-00) according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. We thus ensure premium quality in testing, assessment and certification as well as documentation of results.


BACNET CERTIFICATION OF COMPONENTS For BUILDING AUTOMATION SYSTEMS – YOUR BENEFITS:

  • Enhance the quality of your products, thereby ensuring you are ideally prepared for BACnet certification. Save time and money with an ideally aligned certification process.
  • Ensure your products’ conformity with the BACnet standard at an early stage.
  • Reduce total costs of development and speed up time-to-market cycles.
  • Benefit from traceable and robust test results that you can also communicate to third parties.
  • Gain statements which consider the state of the art, test programmes and verification methods (e.g. ANSI/ASHRAE and DIN EN ISO) recognised at national and international level.
  • 인증 프로세스 한 눈에 보기

    1. BACnet 시험 연구소에 문의합니다.

    2. 제품의 기술 규격과 실험실의 관련 시험 역량에 대한 초기 상담 후, 가능하다면 PICS, EPICS와 같은 추가 문서와 완성된 BTL 체크리스트를 시험 연구소에 제공합니다.

    3. 체크리스트를 바탕으로 타당성, 시험 역량, 필요한 시험 범위, 가능한 시험 날짜 및 기간을 확인합니다. 이 확인 결과에 따라 가견적서를 발행합니다.

    4. 인증을 진행하도록 위임하는 경우, 추가 기술 정보와 완전한 기능을 갖춘 제품 하나가 필요합니다.

    5. 필요한 모든 정보가 제출되는 즉시, 결과에 대한 적절한 문서와 BTL 시험 일정에 따라 관련 시험을 모두 수행합니다. 원한다면 연구소에서 시험을 참관할 수도 있습니다. 시험에 참관하는 것은 좋은 생각일 수 있습니다. 제품을 사용하고 있을 때 뿐만 아니라 개별 시험 중에도 마찬가지입니다.

    6. 필요한 모든 시험이 성공적으로 끝나는 즉시, 결과를 시험 보고서에 바로 기록하여 투명성과 명확성을 보장합니다. 시험 보고서를 전송합니다. 시험이 잘 완료되면 시험에 사용했던 제품을 반환합니다.

    7. 이 단계에서 BTL 인증에 필요한 모든 결과를 얻게 됩니다. 인증 신청서는  BTL 웹사이트를 통해 온라인으로 제출할 수 있습니다

    8. 필요한 모든 정보와 시험 보고서를 BTL에 제출하면 BTL은 문서를 공식적으로 검토합니다.

    9. 이 검토가 긍정적인 결과로 완료된다면, 고객은 요청한 인증서를 받게 되며 제품에 BTL 로고를 부착할 자격이 주어집니다. 인증서는 발급일로부터 5년간 유효합니다.
