BIG-EU and OPC agree cooperation deal

BACnet Interest Group Europe (BIG-EU) and the OPC Foundation have signed a cooperation agreement.
BIG-EU and OPC agree cooperation deal
BACnet is the data communication protocol for building automation and control networks. The BIG-EU coordinates the European BACnet activities and globally represents the interests of the European members and countries in close co-operation with the ASHRAE, BACnet International (BI) and all existing and prospective BACnet Interest Groups.

The OPC Foundation is an industry consortium that creates and maintains standards for open connectivity of industrial automation devices and systems.

In October, the organisations established a joint working group on their work.

Klaus Waechter of the BIG-EU board said: 'By working together, we connect the building automation systems to the enterprise level on a broad scale. BACnet as a global protocol, provides a perfect base.'

Stefan Hoppe, president of the OPC Europe, added: 'BACnet is the de facto standard for building automation - OPC UA provides an IT transport to other markets and to the ERP level . We want to make better use of both together.'
