Building Automation System Integration with Open Protocols builds upon the foundation of control device knowledge covered in Building Automation Control Devices and Applications.

This textbook introduces concepts of automated electronic controls and network communication and then details the two primary protocols for wired networks:

  • LonWorks
  • BACnet

Each protocol system is thoroughly described with information about installation, configuration, operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting.

The capstone of this textbook is a series of examples that illustrate the design, installation, and configuration of each protocol in various scenarios. The final chapter discusses the future of building automation, including trends in the industry, networking, protocols, and control strategies.

A CD-ROM is included with Building Automation System Integration with Open Protocols and contains information to supplement the textbook.
