Although Innotech has used BACnet as its preferred integration solution for many years, we have watched BACnet become the dominant protocol for manufacturers of BEMS globally, mainly due to the ease of interoperability between brands.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 23, 2015
Members of the BACnet community are welcoming Innotech to the ranks of BACnet International. The new silver member is a privately owned Australian manufacture of world-class building and energy management system (BEMS) hardware and software solutions. With extensive in-house research and development and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, Innotech is self-sufficient and highly adaptable to market changes and client needs. This structure is the key to Innotech’s success over the past 30-plus years, ensuring the delivery of client-focussed, sustainable solutions, with global distribution and support.
“Although Innotech has used BACnet as its preferred integration solution for many years, we have watched BACnet become the dominant protocol for manufacturers of BEMS globally, mainly due to the ease of interoperability between brands,” said Thomas McIlhatton, Innotech’s distribution manager. “While there are many native BACnet offerings on the market, there are also many differences in what they can achieve. When developing Innotech’s Omni BEMS platform, we made the decision to build a feature-rich native BACnet solution that provides savings, as well as one-of-a-kind innovation. Further, we realized a need to have Omni independently tested and listed with BTL to guarantee it meets the BACnet standards for interoperability. This provides Innotech with many new opportunities globally, for projects and distribution partners.”
Innotech Controls joins more than 110 of the leading building automation vendors and integrators in the world in pursuing of BACnet as a communication protocol.
“As BACnet International finds it mission critical to promote the successful use of BACnet protocol in building automation, it is exciting to welcome a company like Innotech Controls to our membership,” said Andy McMillan, president and managing director of BACnet International. “Innotech's commitment to producing BACnet-enabled BEMS hardware and software solutions makes them a perfect fit for our association, and we look forward to enhancing the company's sucess through their membership.”
