Hands-On BASautomation Training Update

Due to concerns about COVID-19, our two-day BASautomation training session at the College of DuPage (COD) in Glen Ellyn, IL had to be postponed. Many of our registered attendees were understanding and willing to wait. Unfortunately, until further notice, the COD college campus is closed, and their regular classes will utilize alternative instruction. We have therefore (regretfully) decided to cancel our training session and will be reaching out to our attendees to offer refunds. Once conditions improve, we are committed to provide this training.

The training was to focus on what you need to know to apply our BASautomation products in real-world applications. Our goal is to help you "Build on BACnet" for your building automation and energy management systems.

The hands-on training planned to cover:

  • An introduction to BACnet networked DDC Controllers
  • Interfacing to Input/Output devices such as sensors, switches, motors, dampers, etc.
  • 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)

To be taught by an industry expert in the new 50-million-dollar Technical Education Center (TEC) on the college campus, this course would give participants a 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.
