DEOS passed Fraport AG' BACnet test

In December 2014, DEOS control systems GmbH passed the demanding Fraport BACnet tests for the OPEN 4100 EMS, OPEN 810 EMS and OPEN 600 EMS products.

The successful completion of the Fraport AG tests for BACnet conformity is the basic requirement for DEOS partners to participate in Fraport tenders in building automation. After all, only partners and manufacturers with this verified conformity with the Fraport BACnet requirement are taken into consideration. In addition, Fraport, the global airport company, also tests the interoperability with these partners and manufacturers while simultaneously using several products at its Frankfurt Airport (FRA) home base.
"The confirmation of the Fraport conformity and interoperability test also provides other DEOS partners with the assurance that our products offer a high degree of compliance with the standard and thus a good basis for property-specific interoperability in building automation," said Kai Baumann, Managing Director of DEOS control systems GmbH.
With this BACnet conformity and interoperability test, Fraport tests the compliance of all functions required in the latest product specification version 7.0, which is based on the international standard (DIN EN ISO 16484-4,-5 135.1 as well as the BLT test plan). The Fraport product specification describes the requirements to be satisfied for BACnet services, objects, properties as well as building automation functions.
Fraport already introduced the BACnet communication protocol as the standard in building automation at Frankfurt Airport in 2006. A comprehensive BACnet test facility was constructed in a test laboratory that was especially set up at FRA for testing devices. The test series is conducted using individual testing methods, depending on the manufacturer and test unit.
The DDC controllers OPEN 4100 EMS, OPEN 810 EMS and OPEN 600 EMS are programmed, parameterized and commissioned with the FUP XL engineering tool, which DEOS developed in-house. There a various software tools available for operating and visualizing the unit. This includes the DEOS BACnetOPENweb building management system software, the web-based operation via OPENview integrated in the controller as well as various control units (DEOS tablet PCs and room control units).

For the current winter timetable, FRA is served by 98 passenger airlines flying to some 250 destinations in 105 countries worldwide.  More than half of FRA’s destinations are intercontinental (beyond Europe) – underscoring Frankfurt’s role as a leading hub in the global air transportation system. In Europe, Frankfurt Airport ranks first in terms of cargo tonnage and is the third-busiest for passenger traffic.  With about 55 percent of all passengers using Frankfurt as a connecting hub, FRA also has the highest transfer rate among the major European hubs.
Frankfurt Airport City has become Germany’s largest job complex at a single location, employing more than 78,000 people at some 500 companies and organizations on site.  Major new real estate developments – such as The Squaire, the Gateway Gardens business park, and the Mönchhof Logistics Park – are creating an exciting new dimension and range of services at the evolving Frankfurt Airport City of the 21st century.
Almost half of Germany’s population lives within a 200-kilometer radius of the FRA intermodal travel hub – the largest airport catchment area in Europe. FRA Airport City also serves as a magnet for other companies located throughout the economically vital Frankfurt/Rhine-Main-Neckar region. Thanks to synergies associated with the region’s dynamic industries, networked expertise, and outstanding intermodal transportation infrastructure, FRA’s world route network enables Hesse’s and Germany’s export-oriented businesses to flourish in global growth markets.
Frankfurt Airport meets the increasing needs of the export-oriented economies of the State of Hesse as well as Germany as a whole, for optimal connections to growth markets around the globe. Likewise, FRA is a strategic gateway for companies wanting to access the huge European marketplace.  Thus, Frankfurt Airport – which is strategically located in the heart of Europe – is one of the most important hubs in the global logistics chain.
