Controller: BACnet Building Controller(BBC), 16x16, Clock

The BACnet Building Controller (B-BC) is a high-performance, native BACnet direct digital controller. As part of a complete interoperable building automation system, this 16x16 B-BC provides precise monitoring and control of connected points. Integrated into the controller is a BACnet router, web server, and expandable I/O (CAN-A168EIO expansion module) in a native BACnet device.

Web Server Functions

  • Built-in web configuration pages allow web browser to configure I/Os and objects, monitor values and alarms (configuration/monitoring also available through TotalControl), and set-up users and passwords.)
  • Firmware upgradable (without requiring physical access) through the web or Ethernet connection, allowing easy updates
  • Custom web graphical interface (created/published in TotalControl, ver. 1.7 or higher)

Router Functions

  • Can route traffic between two MS/TP ports, one BACnet PTP (point-to-point) port, four (logical) BACnet IP ports, and one (logical) BACnet Ethernet port (BACnet IP and BACnet Ethernet are logical ports on the Ethernet physical port)
  • Supports BACnet IP foreign device registration and Broadcast Management Device (BBMD), supports PTP modem communications, and performs IP packet assembling/disassembling (PAD) routing for up to four BACnet IP PAD networks
  • Each of the four (logical) BACnet IP ports can be configured for BACnet IP, BBMD, foreign device registration, or PAD

I/O Expansion Capability

  • Up to seven CAN-A168EIO expansion modules can be added, each providing an additional 16 universal inputs and 8 universal outputs (for a maximum total of 128 inputs and 72 outputs)
  • I/O expansion modules are connected via standard shielded twisted-pair wire and can be installed up to 200 feet from the B-BC
  • Onboard and remote expansion I/O consolidates control of central mechanical plants, air handling units, and other equipment requiring single-point coordination and control of process loops

Other Features and Benefits

  • Email notifications of alarms and events via an external SMTP server
  • 16 universal inputs and 16 universal outputs onboard (expandable to 128 inputs and 72 outputs), software-selectable as analog or binary objects
  • High-performance 32-bit processor
  • Dynamic allocation of memory resources provides flexible use of scheduling, trending, and exception reporting in small- to medium-sized buildings without requiring a personal computer
  • Meets or exceeds the specifications in ANSI/ASHRAE BACnet Standard 135-2004 for BACnet Building Controllers
  • Up to 32 Control Basic custom program sequences for optimal control of a central plant, air handlers, and other connected equipment
