Triacta's Multi-point Energy Management Meter Obtains Coveted BACnet Testing Laboratories Listing
OTTAWA, ONTARIO, Jan 15, 2013 (Marketwire via COMTEX) --
Triacta Power Technologies' PowerHawk multi-point energy management meters have been certified by BACnet Testing Laboratory (BTL) - achieving the highest level of BACnet compliance.
"Products that have obtained the BTL listing have undergone rigorous testing by an independent laboratory to ensure they meet the strict BACnet standards," says Wes Biggs, Triacta's President and CEO. "When selecting a BTL listed product, system integrators and end-users can be assured they are choosing a product that is fully BACnet compliant - and interoperable for the future."
With rising energy costs and increased concerns about energy and power quality, building managers need access to real-time energy and power data. Facility managers want to access this data over BACnet/IP - the networking standard for commercial building automation.
Because BACnet is an open, standard protocol, data from different systems is available in one common format, independent of vendor. With these open, interoperable systems, views of the entire building are easier to create - ensuring facility managers (and all stakeholders) have access to the energy management information they need, when they need it.
By selecting BACnet compliant products, building managers can be confident these products will integrate with existing (and future) Building Management System components. Owners and managers can build a system that gets them the data they need today without worrying about adapting to future needs.
In addition to BACnet communications, Triacta's PowerHawk IP-based meters can be accessed simultaneously using MODBUS TCP, MODBUS RTU over RS-485 or pure IP protocols such as HTTP and FTP. This allows facilities to access meter information through building management systems while IT and business systems access that same information directly through IP.
