BACnet - The Global Standard for Building Automation and Control Networks
by H. Michael Newman, Cornell University, published in 08/05/2013.
This book explains how BACnet can be used to manage heating, ventilating, air-conditioning, refrigerating, lighting, fire control, and alarm systems.
The main objective of the book is to bridge the gap between what the standard prescribes and the reasons behind the prescriptions. Knowing why the standard is written the way it is can be a great help in understanding how it all fits together!
This book should be useful to all members of the BACnet community including data communication and software engineers, building systems engineers, contractors, architects, building operators, and facilities managers.
