Carel's full c.pCO range of controllers has received BACnet B-BC certification, covering equipment and control devices for BMS systems made by different manufacturers.
Francesco Pesce, Programmable Controllers Platform Manager, said: "In recent years we have seen increasingly rapid progress towards network-connected high-efficiency systems to improve management and save energy. The BACnet protocol has been supported for many years on our optional cards and monitoring solutions, ensuring integration of Carel's products into the building's systems.
"Now we have decided to make further investments so as to integrate our controllers with BACnet as standard, making it the main connectivity reference for our high-efficiency solutions. Having the entire c.pCO range of programmable controllers B-BC certified is an important achievement. This certification means we can guarantee our customers the highest reliability in efficient, high-performance and technologically-advanced connected systems.”
“We work very closely with BACnet International, whose activities are fundamental in the areas of building automation and integration. Indeed, starting this year we have decided to become a Gold Member, further underlining Carel's commitment to a sector we have been leaders in for more than 40years.''
