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.

 


Capability Timeline

January 2004 B-AAC devices
May 2005

B-BC devices and testing for Protocol_Revision 4

April 2008 Same as the May 2005 test package except this package contained many test corrections applicable to the B-BC device profile
June 2009 Workstation Profiles
December 2011 Testing up through Protocol_Revision 9
August 2012 Testing up through Protocol_Revision 12 (135-2010)
September 2014 Testing up through Protocol_Revision 14 (135-2012)

 


BACnet Profiles®

The BTL currently tests the profiles colored in BLUE below:

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-RTR

[Router]

B-BBMD [BACnet Broadcast Management Device]
B-GW [Gateway]


DATA LINK

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

 

BACnet/IP

ISO 8802-3 ("Ethernet”)

MS/TP

Point To Point

ARCNET

LonTalk

BACnet/ZigBee

 


ROUTING

The BTL is capable of testing the following routing combinations colored in BLUE below:

 

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 colored in BLUE in the below tables.

Profile Exceptions:

 

1.     DM-BR-B is tested, but not required by any B-BC device if less than Protocol_Revision 10, due to technical issues with the standard for DM-BR-B prior to Protocol_Revision 10.

2.     NM-CE-A,B are not currently tested. B-BC devices are no longer required to have this feature. The reason these BIBBs are not currently tested is that the PTP data link layer is not currently tested, and because there is no interoperable way to configure this feature.

3.     DM-DOB-A is no longer required for B-BC devices. There is no well defined application for DM-DOB-A that cannot easily be done by other means.

4.     AE-ASUM-A, AE-ESUM-A, AE-INFO-A, SCHED-A, T-VMT-A, T-VMMV-A, DS-RPC-A and, DS-RPC-B are deprecated BIBBs.
