First Manufacturer to Integrate All Building Functions under a Single BACnet-Compliant System

Andover, Mass. - Andover Controls Corporation announces a new product line of native BACnet controllers and front-end workstation software. The Company's Continuum BACnet Family will be available for ordering this May.

BACnet is a data communication protocol and an ISO worldwide standard for Building Automation and Control networks developed under the auspices of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air -Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

Designed in strict accordance with ASHRAE standard 135-2001, Andover's native BACnet products can interoperate with other BACnet devices without the need for gateways. No special protocol converters are needed, saving users valuable system configuration time and ongoing maintenance costs.

Schools, universities, governments, and other organizations have chosen BACnet to be their standard communications protocol primarily for temperature control and DDC systems. Andover Controls takes BACnet a step further by incorporating the protocol seamlessly with their Continuum integrated building solution. Building managers can now incorporate all their building subsystems under a single, BACnet-compliant facility management system.

Andover Controls is the first manufacturer to combine BACnet temperature control with security/card access, badging, power and lighting, even digital video, as well as other vendors' BACnet and proprietary devices. Plus, with Andover's dedicated BACnet front-end workstation, users have true single-seat control of their entire facility while managing multiple systems and vendors; or get instant web access to their building system from anywhere with Andover's BACnet web browser package, web.Client.

Founded in 1975, the company has over 40,000 systems installed in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. It is part of publicly held Balfour Beatty plc, a British engineering conglomerate.
