  • Creating applications using wire sheets and powerful drag-and-drop function blocks
  • Routers and their ability to route messages between BACnet/IP, BACnet Ethernet, and BACnet MS/TP networks
  • Gateways, which can provide an interface to "foreign" devices (such as Modbus) and allow them to appear as part of the BACnet network
  • Using BASview supervisor to provide a visual interface to your process
  • Obtaining secure remote access to your job site using Virtual Private Networking (VPN)

The training at COD will take place in the state-of-the-art HVACR lab, located in the Technical Education Center (TEC) on the college campus and led by an industry expert in DDC sequence of operation programming, mechanical HVACR equipment, BACnet. In addition, Contemporary Controls staff will be present during the sessions to answer any technical or product questions as well as assist students in understanding core concepts of the training topics. The goal is to give participants a good grasp of how to facilitate a robust and low-cost HVACR/BAS automation system with controller programming, network integration, building supervision, and secure remote access.
