Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 30, 2009
BACnet International today announced that EBTRON, Inc., a leader in airflow measurement for more than twenty years, is now a Gold-level sponsor of BACnet International. EBTRON has been manufacturing microprocessor-based measurement instrumentation since 1984 that are designed to exceed normal performance criteria and meet the most demanding and restrictive placement requirements. EBTRON's participation in BACnet International will give them access to interoperability testing, educational programs, and enhanced visibility within the BACnet International community on the Web site, product catalog, and newsletters. A full listing of BACnet® International membership benefits is located here (http://www.bacnetinternational.org/displaycommon.cfm?an=1&subarticlenbr=9).
Len Damiano, EBTRON's vice president of sales and marketing communications, explains why they became a member of BACnet International, "we are joining BACnet International to take advantage of all of the benefits that BTL testing offers for our growing number of native BACnet devices: from duct-mounted measurement instruments, to wall-mounted environmental sensors and people counters." Mr. Damiano also commented on the power of the BACnet® protocol, "BACnet offers users 'true' interoperability and the freedom to grow their systems as economically efficient as possible without sacrificing reliability, speed or power. Provided that the implementation of the ASRHAE Standard is complete and true to the intent, real interoperability is readily attainable. BACnet is very powerful, flexible and is designed to provide for quick and trouble-free installation. If a manufacturer needed to select one protocol to bet the future on - BACnet is probably it."
Andy McMillan, President of BACnet International and President/CEO of Teletrol Systems, commented on EBTRON joining BACnet International, "EBTRON is a great addition to the community as they have been responsible for a number of 'firsts,' in the BACnet community, and continue to drive innovation in the building automation space." McMillan added, "In addition to helping shape the future of the BACnet protocol, they will also have access to promotional programs that will help increase awareness of their products and services among thought leaders in the building automation industry."
