New BACnet Controller
Ken Sinclair, Publisher
The MACH-ProZone™ controller, the latest addition to the MACH-Pro
series of controllers, was released in mid-February and opened a new
chapter for Reliable Controls®. The MACH-ProZone™ is a fully
programmable BACnet Building Controller (B-BC) with highly scalable I/O
in a very small footprint. The MACH-ProZone™ is ideal for a wide range
of applications that include small to mid-sized roof top and heatpump
applications, and small mechanical room applications. The controller
features up to eight universal inputs and up to eight universal outputs
with jumper selectable TRIAC configuration. The MACH-ProZone™ ships
standard with removable connectors and support for up to eight
SMART-Sensors (SSLs) or four SMART-Sensor™ EnOceanAccesspoints (SSEAs).
With BACnet® and EnOcean protocol support and a dynamic memory model,
the MACH-ProZone™ provides tremendous flexibility for green building
designers to implement the integrative strategies needed to maximize
Energy and Atmosphere (EA) credits and Indoor Environmental Quality
(IEQ) credits within the LEED rating system.
Reliable Controls® has a long track record of commitment and achievement with BACnet®. From its announcement to commit to the protocol in 1996, to its regular presence at the Interoperability Plugfests, Reliable Controls® has been a steadfast investor in the ASHRAE open protocol.
Recently, Reliable Controls® has embarked on a new level of commitment by allocating key personnel to the administration of the BACnet protocol.
Reliable Controls® President and Founder, Roland Laird, has accepted a nomination to the Board of Directors of BACnet International for a three year term. BACnet International (BI) is the organization committed to the promotion of the BACnet Protocol and protection of the brand. The BACnet Testing Labs is part of BI which ensures compliance to the standard. As one of seven directors, Roland will be responsible for guiding the organization’s technical and marketing activities, policies, and finances.
At the end of the ASHRAE 2012 summer meeting, Reliable Controls® Firmware Manager, Michael Osborne, will assume the position of Secretary of the Standing Standard Project Committee (SSPC) 135 (BACnet). Michael was appointed to the secretary position by the Chair of the Committee and is expected to perform his BACnet duties for four years, after which, Michael will be appointed to the position of Vice Chair of the Committee for an additional four years. After serving as Vice-Chair, Michael will assume the Chairman position for an additional four years, for a total of a 12-year commitment.
Congratulations to Roland and Michael on their new BACnet appointments.
