Automated Logic, a part of Carrier Global Corporation has released new BACnet Secure Connect (BACnet/SC) solutions for the WebCTRL® building automation system, making it easy to implement the latest BACnet security model on new and existing WebCTRL systems.
BACnet/SC secures building automation and control networks from possible threats using standards widely accepted by the IT community. Automated Logic, a leading provider of innovative building management solutions, is a part of Carrier Global Corporation , the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.
“We are proud to bring our BACnet/SC solutions to market,” said Mead Rusert, President, Automated Logic. “As an early adopter of the BACnet/SC protocol, we are committed to providing both existing customers and new customers a path forward for implementing the most secure building automation networks in the industry.”
Both new and existing WebCTRL systems can support BACnet/SC with the following components:
- WebCTRL v8 software. Existing installations can be upgraded easily.
- BACnet/SC virtual hub. This licensed software application is installed on a dedicated server, and authenticates and authorizes BACnet devices to use a site’s BACnet network. The BACnet/SC virtual hub resides at the same location as the WebCTRL server, either on-premises or in the cloud, and manages the secure, encrypted communications between the WebCTRL server and the BACnet devices at the facility.
- BACnet/SC router. This device routes between BACnet/SC and existing WebCTRL networks: BACnet IP, BACnet over ARCnet and/or BACnet over MS/TP.
