Learn about BACnet with Chipkin Automation

Chipkin Automation is offering up another great resource for any aspiring Controls Freak wanting to know more about BACnet.

Chipkin Automation Systems have been a leading expert in building and industrial automation communication protocols since 2000. As such, they definitely know a thing or two about BACnet which is shown by some of their in house developed BACnet tools like the CAS BACnet Explorer used for discovering, testing and debugging BACnet devices. So with all that knowledge they decided a few years ago to put some really good base knowledge of BACnet in to a guide for field technicians.

This field manual has 80 pages full of easy to read information about the BACnet protocol, ways it is implemented, do’s and don’ts and how to’s. There are plenty of illustrations with all this useful information which include screenshots, photo images, charts and tables.

Just to be clear this guide was written for field technicians who are already out in the field working with controls and BACnet devices and are wanting to learn some more in depth information about the protocol etc. Though the helpful information is an easy read, it will likely be over the head of someone who has not worked with BACnet devices previously.

In the past I have even referred others I work with to check the guide out specifically for the sections on ‘How to Capture with WireShark‘ and ‘How to Filter with Wireshark‘. These two sections have some screenshots that break out exactly what you need to do to setup a capture using the FREE (for personal use) Wireshark utility, what to look for in the data you collect and then how to filter out what you don’t want to see or to search for very specific data packets coming or going to certain devices etc.
