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