BIG-EU Plugfest 2018

DEOS tackles BACnet interoperability at BIG-EU Plugfest 2018

In May 2018 the twelfth BIG-EU Plugfest took place in Lüdenscheid, Germany. This annual event serves as a forum to test the interoperability of BACnet products and to further develop the BACnet standard. At the forum international participants discussed new trends and innovations around the standard.

Two teams of four people from DEOS AG Rheine took part and were involved in testing the interoperability of DEOS GLT/BMS OPENwebDEOS BACnet DDC (OPEN EMS) and DEOS Single Room Unit (OPEN SRU) with BACnet systems of other manufacturers. In addition to achieving generally good results, the teams also discovered new details that flow directly into product optimisation.

Particularly exciting for the participants was the exchange between developers and product managers, who had the opportunity to exchange ideas on neutral ground. Plugfest therefore provides the framework for identifying interoperability problems in your own BACnet products and in the BACnet standard.

BACnet products from DEOS have already proven their BACnet interoperability and performance in many building automation projects. After initial product experience, system integrators and customers regularly opt for products from DEOS’s own development department – “Made in Germany” – and request further modernization or upgrade steps.
