OAS delivers cover story: MAIN TOWER in BACnet Europe Journal


The photo of the OAS case study on the MAIN TOWER made it to the cover of the latest BACnet Europe Journal. The study describes how OAS used BACnet and the Niagara Framework® to set the cornerstone for the planning of a building operation system MAIN TOWER in Frankfurt, Germany. It focuses on the planning of a service-neutral building automation ethernet and the concept of the BACnet-enabled Building Operation System.

"Sustainable management of the MAIN TOWER is the goal," explains Michael Wellenberg, senior project manager at GGM Gesellschaft für Gebäude-Management in the case study published in the BACnet Europe Journal. "On a sample floor, OAS and PGA demonstrate how the digital future works."

The bilingual BACnet Europe Journal has been published twice a year in English and German since 2004 and is edited by the BACnet Interest Group Europe (BIG-EU). OAS became a member of BIG-EU in 2021 and has since contributed to innovative solutions in building automation with case studies and product introductions.
