ASHRAE Addendum Makes BACnet Easier
According to ASHRAE, the proposed addendum “d” will replace the Conformance Class and Functional Group structure of the current standard with a new approach based on BACnet Interoperability Building Blocks (BIBB’s). The BIBB’s are grouped into the five areas: data sharing, alarm and event management, scheduling, trending, and device and network management.
The addendum is open for public review until Jan. 30, 2001. Drafts of the proposed addendum are available during public review period, and can be obtained online at www.ashrae.org/STANDARDS/pubrevdft.htm.
