BACnet International Releases BACnet Secure Connect Reference Implementation in Open Source

Reference Implementation assists Building Automation System providers with in-house BACnet/SC device testing

ATLANTA (PRWEB) August 17, 2021

BACnet International has announced the public release into open source of the BACnet Secure Connect (BACnet/SC) Reference Implementation, a Java implementation of BACnet/SC. The Reference Implementation includes a System Test Bench which provides manufacturers with powerful and effective device and system test capabilities. BACnet International is an industry association that facilitates the successful use of the BACnet protocol in building automation and control systems through interoperability testing, educational programs and promotional activities.

The Reference Implementation was created by BACnet International in an effort to accelerate the adoption of BACnet/SC for the greater good of the building automation industry. It provides Building Automation System (BAS) providers with a quick way to ramp up their in-house BACnet/SC testing with a set of capabilities and scripts that can be used across multiple platforms. Included is a sophisticated Test Bench that enables rapid creation of multiple nodes and hubs to simulate complex network environments.

"There is a lot of pressure on BAS manufacturers to bring products with BACnet Secure Connect capability to market," stated Andy McMillan, president and managing director of BACnet International. "We're happy to provide the Reference Implementation to help speed up the process of testing and, ultimately, launch."

The Reference Implementation, along with the System Test Bench, were originally provided to participants as part of BACnet International's BACnet/SC Interoperability Acceleration Program. This program provided BAS suppliers with the knowledge and skills necessary to incorporate BACnet/SC in their products and solutions and a fast track to developing in-house technical knowledge. The Reference Implementation was community-vetted in this program and is now available on Source Forge, the open-source repository, for download at
