Lab Capabilities

Protocol Test Lab (PTL) supports testing of BACnet devices as per the latest BACnet standards, for multiple Profiles, with various Data Link Layer and Routing options. PTL has an in-house, structured training program to build a knowledgeable, skilful and efficient test team, proficient at conducting BACnet Compliance and Interoperability Testing.

Protocol Test Lab tests all the following Profiles:

B-XAWS [Cross-Domain Advanced Operator Workstation]
B-AWS [Advanced Operator Workstation]
B-OWS [Operator Workstation]
B-OD [Operator Display]
B-BC [Building Controller]
B-AAC [Advanced Application Controller]
B-ASC [Application Specific Controller]
B-SA [Smart Actuator]
B-SS [Smart Sensor]
B-ALSWS [Advanced Life Safety Workstation]
B-LSWS [Life Safety Workstation]
B-LSAP [Life Safety Annunciator Panel]
B-AACWS [Advanced Access Control Workstation]
B-ACWS [Access Control Workstation]
B-ACSD [Access Control Security Display]
B-ALSC [Advanced Life Safety Controller]
B-LSC [Life Safety Controller]
B-ALSC [Life Safety Controller]
B-AACC [Advanced Access Control Controller]
B-ACC [Access Control Controller]
B-ACDC [Access Control Door Controller]
B-ACCR [Access Control Credential Reader]
B-RTR [Router]
B-BBMD [BACnet Broadcast Management Device]
B-GW [Gateway]

PTL tests devices that support the following data link implementations:

BACnet/IP
MS/TP
ISO 8802-3 ("Ethernet”)
BACnet/IPv6
Point To Point
ARCNET
LonTalk
BACnet/ZigBee

PTL tests the following routing combinations:

Physical BACnet LANs*
Half-routing as per clause 6.7 ASHRAE 135
Virtual devices and virtual BACnet LAN as per clauses H.1 and H.2 in ASHRAE 135

Note: The physical BACnet LANs available for testing are limited by the BTL capability of testing the data link layer. See the Data Link chart above.
