ABB drives offer BACnet capability

ABB drives
BACnet ready — ABB drives for HVAC applications.
ABB claims to be the first drives manufacturer to offer support for the BACnet communications protocol. It is now a standard feature of the company’s HVAC drives. BACnet is one of the most accessible of the open systems on the market, giving more scope for future development. All BACnet devices communicate in the same language, without the need for additional hardware and gateways. ABB’s BACnet-enabled drives can be directly connected to a BACnet system and take advantage of features like auto-discovery, dynamic binding, time synchronisation and read/write variable requests. The benefit is that the end user of a native BACnet drive will get better control at a lower installed price.
