OAS supports BACnet protocol: networking with the BACnet Interest Group (BIG-EU)


For OAS, the fall meetings of the BACnet Interest Group (BIG-EU) were all about networking with the attending vendors and users. For the first time, OAS participated as a new member of the BACnet Interest Group (BIG-EU) at the general meeting in Frankfurt am Main on October 11. OAS was also represented in the Marketing Working Group and the Facility Management Working Group and contributed to the broader application of the BACnet protocol.

Anna Schweikert represented OAS in the Marketing Working Group (WG-M). Here, the networking of the BACnet standard in Europe is promoted, ideas for joint actions are generated and implemented. A review of the joint booth at Light + Building was on the agenda as well as the planning of the joint exhibition at ISH 2023, where the focus will be on the anniversary of the 25th anniversary of the BIG-EU.

Benno Schweikert represented the OAS in the Facility Management Working Group (WG-FM). The youngest of the three BIG-EU working groups set its first goals. One focus of the work will be the application of Building Information Modeling (BIM). Among other things, the working group will work to standardize the names of data points.
