New BACnet Test Lab Established

04/04/2006


For more than five years of continuous operation, the BACnet Testing Laboratories (BTL) has operated a test lab in Boston. BACnet International and BTL have reached an agreement with SoftDEL Systems to establish and maintain a test lab for BACnet products.

SoftDEL is headquartered in Stafford, Texas, but the actual test facility that the company will operate for BTL will be located in Mumbai, India. The BTL Manager and BTL working group of BACnet International will continue to administer the test lab.

Jim Butler, of BACnet International member company Cimetrics, has served as BTL Manager since 2000.for some, we also sought for a cost-effective solution. Finally, we needed to maintain the objective neutrality of a third party. We entertained several proposals but settled on SoftDEL after extensive investigation.”

According to Ajay Nirantar, business development manager for SoftDEL, the Mumbai lab has been performing similar testing and validation since 2001.

Transitional training for test lab personnel takes place in April.
