Abstract:

Army Installations often expand their use of digital control systems for heating, ventilating, and air conditioning and other mechanical and electrical building systems on a building-by-building basis. Associated control systems are installed under separate contracts by different contractors resulting in intra-system incompatibilities. The implementation of multi-vendor Open Building Automation Systems BASs is meant to overcome such incompatibilities however BASs can present their own technical and administrative including contractual challenges. This report defines a methodology for the development and execution of a basewide Open Building Automation System BAS implementation plan based on LONWORKS registered trademark technology and American National Standards Institute ANSI communications standard 709.1 where the BAS consists of a basewide Utility Monitoring and Control System UMCS that is interoperable with multi-vendor LONWORKS registered trademark direct digital control DDC systems.
