OPEN.WRX AS BACnet/SC certified

The first controller worldwide with encrypted communication via BACnet

The new DEOS controller generation OPEN.WRX is the first controller worldwide in the industry to be BACnet/SC certified. This means that encrypted communication via BACnet is possible.

BACnet/SC marks the beginning of a new era in modern IT infrastructure. As a result, it is finally possible to encrypt the approximately 25 million BACnet devices installed worldwide thanks to 100% compatibility with the already existing BACnet IP or BACnet MS/TP networks. Complex BBMD configurations, static IP addresses or unencrypted telegrams are now a thing of the past. With BACnet/SC, segments, networks, buildings or even entire properties can be easily interconnected.

OPEN.WRX is the first controller worldwide to be BACnet/SC certified

Designed to be compatible with the B-SCHUB profile

The DEOS team of experts is proud to be pioneers and to offer the first controller worldwide with a BACnet/SC certification. For DEOS, the focus has always been on standardised networking via BACnet, which simultaneously offers a high level of interoperability. We have therefore implemented the entire range of BACnet/SC functions including:

  • node connections
  • and hub functionalities.

Hub functionality is also ensured through compatibility of OPEN.WRX AS with the new BACnet profile BACnet Secure Connect Hub (B-SCHUB).

Features of the BACnet/SC certification

5 BACnet/SC functions bundled in one device

OPEN.WRX AS can be used as a simple BACnet/SC participant in a BACnet/SC network, allowing seamless insertion into an existing BACnet/SC network.

The primary hub is the device in the BACnet/SC network that manages the communication in the network between all BACnet/SC participants. Within each BACnet/SC network, there must be exactly one primary hub.

The failover hub is the device in the BACnet/SC network that automatically takes over the management of communication in the network if the primary hub fails. In BACnet/SC networks, failover security can be increased in this way. The use of a failover hub is optional in BACnet/SC networks.

The programming of the BACnet server and BACnet client connections is carried out as before. By using OPEN.WRX AS, routing into a BACnet/SC network is done with one click: only BACnet/SC has to be activated on the OPEN.WRX AS. Thanks to the 4 integrated Ethernet interfaces in particular, the OPEN.WRX AS offers even greater flexibility for networking BACnet IP devices.

The programming of BACnet client connections is carried out as before. By using OPEN.WRX AS, routing into a BACnet/SC network is done with one click: only BACnet/SC has to be activated on the OPEN.WRX AS. With up to 3 integrated RS485 interfaces, OPEN.WRX AS offers even greater flexibility for connecting BACnet MS/TP devices.

Working further towards the future

Our web-based building management system (BMS) OPENweb is also on its way to BACnet/SC certification. Here, too, we will implement the full range of functions in order to offer our partners the greatest possible flexibility.
