BACnet certificate renewed
Starting with version 4024 of TwinCAT 3, the new BACnet supplement is available. With a total of 657 possible combinations of basic device, CPU, operating system and display size (for Panel PCs), the right solution is available for any application. Each controller can process data volumes for a number of BACnet objects ranging from 400 to 5,000.

The globally standardized BACnet compliance check included testing and certification of BACnet Revision 14, the routing between BACnet/IP and MS/TP, along with twelve new object types. The advanced AS-B profile of the AMEV was also recognized in connection with the certification process.

Issued in January 2019, the BACnet certificate will be valid for five years. BACnet Revision 14 also features significantly improved and expanded alarm properties. In addition, basic data types such as, for example, a date, a character string or floating-point values can now be mapped with twice the precision as before by help of the "primitive value" objects. The Remote Manager in TwinCAT 3 ensures downward compatibility with legacy objects in BACnet Revision 12.
