    BACnet Explorer PR-19

    Your one-stop solution to explore
    any BACnet Device within Smart Building Network

  • BOSS Explorer
  • Overview

    BACnet is a complex and continuously evolving standard. The difficulty to troubleshoot interoperability issues is compounded by lack of access to in-field conditions.

    Building automation solutions providers and smart building OEMs are constrained by a lack of comprehensive and certified tools to establish BACnet communication within their product offerings. In addition, many of the available, certified tools are not compliant with the latest BACnet standards.


    Solution

    Softdel’s BOSS Explorer enables users to auto-discover BACnet devices, objects and their properties in any BACnet network. It allows developers and system integrators to browse, monitor, configure and edit property values within the discovered devices. It also provides segmentation support and is compliant with the latest industry protocol revision, PR-19.
