Chipkin offers a BACnet Stack (CAS BACnet Stack) that supports BACnet Revision 19 and is tested extensively at the annual BACnet Plugfest event. the BACnet is a software library that allows you to add a native BACnet interface to your embedded devices or applications.
Because we have also built the stack to be BACnet spec compliant (we do things according to the BACnet spec.), No device that used our BACnet stack has ever failed to receive the BTL Certification (BACnet International BLT) by the BACnet Testing laboratories. We do things the right way from the start! CONTACT US!
