End users now have several new BACnet Testing Laboratories (BTL) Listed products available for selection. A BTL Listing, and the related BTL Mark, are becoming the recognized worldwide credential to establish that the product is tested, compliant, and that it correctly implements the BACnet standard. The following products completed testing and became BTL Listed products in the second quarter of 2012:
American Auto-Matrix BACnet Building Controller
Hitachi HC-A8BNC H-Link Gateway
Johnson Controls Facility Explorer
Johnson Controls Field Advanced Controller
Johnson Controls Field Equipment Controller
Johnson Controls Input / Output Module
KMC Controls TotalControl Workstation

Trane Tracer™ UC600 Programmable Controller
Danfoss FC101 Frequency Converter
A BTL Listing, noted through the use of a BTL Mark, is increasingly being recognized worldwide as the credential identifying product which has successfully passed the standard conformance and interoperability BACnet testing program. This requirement is steadily becoming the benchmark stated in project specifications, to avoid sub-standard implementations.
