The BACnet community is proud to announce that CAREL has decided to upgrade its BACnet International membership from Silver to Gold. CAREL, based in Padova, Italy, provides control solutions for air-conditioning, refrigeration and heating, and systems for humidification and evaporative cooling. Its solutions are used in commercial, industrial and residential applications.
“The BACnet® protocol has been supported for many years on our optional cards and monitoring solutions, ensuring integration of CAREL's products into the building's systems,” stated Francesco Pesce, CAREL Programmable Controllers Platform manager. “Now we have decided to make further investments so as to integrate our controllers with BACnet® as standard, making it the main connectivity reference for our high-efficiency solutions. Having the entire c.pCO range of programmable controllers B-BC (BACnet Building Controller) certified is an important achievement. This certification means we can guarantee our customers the highest reliability in efficient, high-performance and technologically-advanced connected systems.
“We work very closely with BACnet® International, whose activities are fundamental in the areas of building automation and integration,” added Pesce. “Indeed, starting this year we have decided to become a Gold Member, further underlining CAREL’s commitment to a sector we have been leaders in for more than forty years.”
CAREL is one of more than 125 leading building automation vendors and integrators around the world who are BACnet International members, actively advocating BACnet as a communication protocol.
“CAREL has been a strong, active member of BACnet International since 2008,” stated Andy McMillan, president and managing director of BACnet International. “We are delighted to see them move up to the Gold level and really capitalize on the benefits offered to our member companies.”
