Test Capabilities

The current BTL Test capabilities include Workstation Profiles, Operator Displays, Building Controllers, Advanced Application Controller, Application-Specific Controllers, Gateway Controllers, Smart Actuators, and Smart Sensors.

If you have a device of another type that you want tested, please contact the BTL Manager to see if your device can be accommodated.

The BTL has been incrementally adding testing capability over the years. The BTL Listing specifies the Testing Requirements at which the device was tested and thus indicates the testing capability available at the time of testing.

DATA LINK - 

The BTL can test devices that support the data link implementations below:

 

BACnet/IP
MS/TP

ISO 8802-3 ("Ethernet”)

BACnet/IPv6

Point To Point

ARCNET

LonTalk

BACnet/ZigBee

BACnet Secure Connect 
BACnet Direct WebSocket

 


ROUTING - 

The BTL is capable of testing 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.

 
 

The BTL can currently test all BIBBS.
