This section distinguishes between Operator Interfaces and Field Interfaces to the BAS. The Operator Interface refers to the main 'front-end' method for accessing and operating the BAS. The Field Interfaces typically access the BAS from the controller-level and have limited functionality, and may include HID, LDP, and ZBI as described below. This section describes the devices only; OI functionality is generally covered in the Software, while Field Interface functionality is detailed further in the individual Controllers
Operator Interfaces (OI)
Dedicated Operator Workstation (OWS)
Dedicated PC(s) with proprietary workstation software
"Thin" Client Browser Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher. Windows 2000 operating system with the lastest service packs. Pentium 4 1.7 Ghz PC with 512MB RAM
"Thick" Client Browser N.A.
Product Application(s): N.A.
Handheld Interface Devices (HID)
PDA-Based Information not provided
Proprietary Information not provided
Local Display Panel (LDP) eBuilding offers a LCD screen to edit and view hardware/software.
Zone Based Interfaces (ZBI)
Thermostat with communication port to access local controller/network Information not provided
Other thermostat types available (without communication ports)
Interface to BAS Networks BACnet/IP
Compatible with the building's IT network? Yes
Protocol(s) BACnet/IP
Cabling and Speeds Standard IP Cabling
Expansion Capability Information not provided
Additional Information
Peer-to-Peer or Polling? Peer to Peer
Protocol(s) Teletrol TSCnet
Cabling and Speeds 19.2 Kbps
Expansion Capability Up to 64 TSC controllers per eBuilding controller.
Additional Information
Includes a listing of available Gateways, Routers and other devices that provide additional communications flexibility into and out of the BAS. Repeaters, bridges, standard modems and the like are typically not included here. Note: If in use by the BAS, the Internet/building IT Network is extremely open and non-proprietary. If a vendor uses the IT Network, CI devices such as IP routers and hubs can be purchased from third parties.
