Contemporary Controls Participates with the BIG-CN in Guangzhou Building Automation Show

Preview of StandMay 2011 - Contemporary Controls will be one of four exhibitors in a joint stand with BACnet Interest Group China (BIG-CN) at the 2011 Electrical Building Technology Guangzhou show June 9 - 12 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex, Guangzhou, China. The show supports China's rapidly growing green building technology market with a focus on building and home automation. With over 10,000 sq-m of exhibition space, nearly 200 exhibitors from nine countries are expected.

The four-day show is one of the most popular events for China's growing building automation industry. Last year, more than 71,000 visitors attended the event, which is held concurrently with the Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition. The two shows attract system integrators, building engineers, contractors and architects from around the world.

"Sharing a stand with BIG-CN allows us to demonstrate our shared purpose of promoting BACnet for China's growing building automation industry," said Jason Peng, Product Manager at Contemporary Controls (Suzhou) Ltd. "We have several products in our BASautomation line that support BACnet while providing a convenient method of integrating other protocols such as Modbus in BACnet building automation systems. Integrating Modbus energy meters in an overall building automation system is an important green application in Asia."

The other exhibitors in the BIG-CN stand are Schneider Electric, Delta Controls and PcVue Solutions. Using Contemporary Controls' CTRLink Ethernet infrastructure products, there will be a demonstration of BACnet/IP connectivity among the four exhibitors. Demonstrating seamless integration of BACnet equipment from different BACnet vendors is one of the goals of the BIG-CN.

The BASautomation line consists of BACnet routers, gateways and controllers while the CTRLink line provides Ethernet infrastructure products such as managed and unmanaged switches, media converters, wired and wireless IP routers. Ethernet has become very popular when deploying BACnet systems.
