Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
BACnet manufacturers now have another peer joining the ranks of BACnet International with the addition of silver member Accutrol LLC. Accutrol LLC, the manufacturer of the AccuValve® Airflow Control Valve, joined BACnet International as part of their ongoing strategy to ensure their products integrate seamlessly with all modern Building Automation Systems. “Accutrol recently released the AVC product family, which incorporates a high performance controller with the revolutionary award winning AccuValve product. The AVC brings BACnet connectivity directly to the AccuValve. Field programming of the AVC is accomplished using an intuitive PC‐based programming tool called the AVC ‘Insight,’” stated Brian O’Rourke, Vice President of Engineering and Manufacturing for Accutrol LLC. “Having BACnet interoperability at the valve‐level provides building owners and operators with a product that they can maintain without having to rely on the valve supplier for support services.”
As a silver member, Accutrol LLC joins over 80 of the leading building automation vendors and integrators in the world in pursuing advancement of BACnet as a communication protocol.
“Successful integration and interoperability is an important goal of BACnet International and its members,” stated Andy McMillan, President of BACnet International. “We are pleased to have Accutrol united in this goal.”
