Stockholm, Sweden, 14 February 2019: The independent BACnet Interest Group Europe (BIG-EU) will be holding its first two-day BACnet Academy from April 24 to 25, 2019, in Stockholm, Sweden, the body announced in a Press communiqué. The Academy will present the basics of interoperability, as well as innovations from the world of networked building technology, the communiqué said.

With 64% worldwide market coverage, BACnet is already the backbone of building automation in functional buildings, the communiqué said. New applications, such as semantic tagging, are now being added to make the standard even more powerful and pave the way for all BACnet users to enter the Building Internet of Things (BIoT), the communiqué further said. This will be demonstrated using an IP-capable valve actuator and a camera-based person counter with BACnet/IP, the communiqué also said. An MS/TP valve actuator will also be demonstrated, the communiqué added.

Frank Schubert, spokesman, BIG-EU advisory board, who is also the instructor at the Academy in Stockholm, said, “With the many innovations concerning BACnet, smart buildings can be operated even more efficiently.” He will provide participants with first-hand information on the integration of lighting, security and elevator technology, on the integration of cloud computing and BACnet Secure as well as on the worldwide certification system for BACnet products, the communiqué said.

The communiqué said the Academy will support building planners, system integrators, project engineers and facility managers with an intensive and up-to-date overview of possible applications. The communiqué further said that the Academy participants will be awarded with a certificate. For information and registration, visit: www.bacnetacademy.org.
