BACNET – PRODUCT TESTING AND CERTIFICATION

Testing and Certification of Components for Building Automation Systems in accordance with ANSI/ASHRAE 135 (DIN EN ISO 16484-5)

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.
  • 认证过程一览

    1.您需要向BACnet检测实验室提出非正式申请

    2.在针对您产品的技术规格以及我们实验室的相关检测能力进行初步沟通后,您需要向我们的检测实验室提供完整的BTL检查清单,以及PICS和EPICS(如有)等文件。

    3.我们将按照检查清单确定可行性、检测能力、测试范围和可能的测试日期和时间。依据核对结果,我们将出具一份初始报价单,该报价单无约束性。

    4.如果您确认委托我们进行认证,您需要提供进一步的技术资料和具有完整功能的成品。

    5.提交所有资料后,我们将立刻根据BTL测试时间表和相应的结果文件进行所有相关的测试。如果愿意,您也可以在实验室观察我们的测试这可能是个好建议——您不仅可以观察产品的实际使用,还能观察到单独的测试过程。 

    6.所有测试成功完成之后,我们将立刻将结果总结成报告,过程透明清晰。之后您将拿到这份测试报告。检测成功后,我们会立即将检测所需的产品交还给您。

    7.到此您已经获得了BTL认证的所有结果。您可以通过BTL网站在线提交认证申请。

    8.一旦您向BTL提交了所有要求的资料和测试报告,您的资料将被正式审核。

    9.审核结果通过后您将收到认证证书,并有权在您的产品上加上BTL标志。该证书自签发之日起有效期5年。
