Before buildings were tied to the proprietary protocol of manufacturers, so if customers wanted to upgrade or expand they had only one supplier choice, like it or not. At Delta Controls we felt that this was wrong, people choose our systems and stay with them not because we lock them in, but because our systems consistently perform well.
- BACnet is designed to allow HVAC/R, lighting, life safety, access, security, power, vertical transportation and other building system control devices to interoperate.
- BACnet affords facility owners and manager's maximum flexibility and cost-effectiveness by allowing control products made by different manufacturers to be integrated into a single, uniform system.
- The BACnet protocol was initiated by end-user groups, and developed to be a consensus standard, under full public scrutiny. Today, as an international standard, it cannot be changed without public review and comment – ensuring it's robust and practical.
- BACnet is now considered the leading international protocol gaining worldwide certification including a European standard (CEN) and ISO standard (ISO 16484-5).
Delta’s building automation system includes HVAC/R, Card Access and Lighting control. It is the world's first fully integrated BACnet system, featuring full interoperability and internet accessibility. It has the industry’s most extensive implementation of BACnet, native to all products through all levels of the system.
Delta Controls still plays a major role in the continued development of BACNet to meet future needs. With Carl Neilson, one of Delta Controls most experienced senior developers, serving as Chair of the BACnet committee until 2016, we will continue to lead the way within our industry.
