One of the cornerstones of the EcoStruxure BMS is support for open standards. As a result, the MP Series controller complies with the BACnet open standard, one of the most popular standards for buildings.
The MP Series controller can natively communicate with BACnet/IP networks. When the MP Series controller is part of an EcoStruxure BMS, the BACnet protocol is used for communication between the device and its parent EcoStruxure BMS server and other BACnet devices on the IP network, including SmartX IP controllers. As a native BACnet/IP device, the MP Series controller supports BACnet services such as trends, schedules, and alarms, and the controller can communicate with other BACnet devices on a BACnet/IP network. The MP Series controller conforms to the BACnet Advanced Application Controller (B-AAC) device profile.
