Numerous SAUTER products, solutions and services in building management have received certifications and awards. We are pleased to announce that more are following. SAUTER modulo 6 automation stations modu680-AS and the latest addition modu660-AS have recently been BTL-certified.
SAUTER modulo 6 is unequalled in terms of performance, data points, memory space and processing speed. The complete modulo 6 portfolio of building controllers is now BTL-certified which confirms that modulo 6 complies with the BACnet standard and ensures highest interoperability and compatibility with other BACnet devices. The two automation stations modu680-AS and the modu660-AS have both been certified as building controllers (BACnet device profile B-BC) as well as lighting devices (new BACnet profile B-LD).
Extended BACnet functionality
The BACnet functionality has been extended to comply with BACnet device profile B-BC and B-LD. These enhancements include
The new BACnet Lighting Device Profile
The standardised output object set for applications in lighting has long been included in SAUTER devices. It provides enhanced support for a range of lighting applications requiring analogue control, including fading down or ramping up the light intensity, egress control as well as dedicated command possibilities ‒ no programming efforts needed. The new BACnet profile B-LD assures its high level of quality and conformance. The profile also confirms supported interaction with the lighting output object as defined by the service “Data Sharing Lighting Output B” (DS-LO-B BIBB), allowing the operation by client devices supporting the DS-LO-A or DS-ALO-A BIBB (“Data Sharing Advanced Lighting Output A”).
BACnet Certification explained
It may be invisible but the BACnet standard is indispensable in building automation. It is the predominant communication protocol in the industry today. Put simply, the protocol defines the rules for data exchange between each HVAC and building automation device. The certification programme of the BACnet Testing Laboratories (BTL) bestows companies with a certificate of conformity (inclusion in the BTL list). The certificate confirms that the range of functions documented is compliant with the standard and the BTL logo indicates this.
