Building Automation System Integration with Open Protocols builds upon the foundation of control device knowledge covered in Building Automation: Control Devices and Applications.
Building Automation System Integration with Open Protocols builds upon the foundation of control device knowledge covered in Building Automation Control Devices and Applications. This textbook introduces concepts of automated electronic controls and network communication and then details the two primary protocols for wired networks: LonWorks® and BACnet®. Each protocol system is thoroughly described with information about installation, configuration, operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting.
The capstone of this textbook is a series of examples that illustrate the design, installation, and configuration of each protocol in various scenarios. The final chapter discusses the future of building automation, including trends in the industry, networking, protocols, and control strategies.
A CD-ROM is included with this text. It contains the following features:
* Quick Quizzes®
* Illustrated Glossary
* Flash Cards
* Media Clips

A building automation system is a network of "intelligent" control devices used in one or more building systems, such as HVAC, lighting, and security systems. Building automation systems operate cooperatively to share building information and control system devices automatically according to programmed logic. Building Automation: Control Devices and Applications focuses on these control devices and how they work together in common automation scenarios. This textbook covers the operation, signals, and functions of the senors, acutators, and other control equipment used in automated systems in commercial buidlings. The textbook is organized by building system, and each system is explained so that the function and application of each device is clear. The system-based foundation is then used to discuss the typical interactions between multiple systems in automated buildings.
