Building Automation and Control Network Protocol
BACnet is the ASHRAE Building Automation and Control networking protocol. It is a flexible standard used in building systems such as heating, air conditioning, light control, fire detection, etc. The standard itself is object oriented and lends itself to a LabVIEW implementation.
Endigit has extensive experience with talking to BACnet devices in LabVIEW. We have developed a class-based API natively in LabVIEW that talks over both BACnet-IP and BACnet MSTP and could easily be extended to other BACnet supported interface layers.
