One of the biggest barriers we’ve found in this industry is a lack of accessible educational resources. For people who are new to the business of BAS, it’s a real challenge trying to string together information.
Of course, lots of people in the industry are doing fantastic work to change this. Phil Zito’s Building Automation Monthly and Ken Sinclair’s Automated Buildings are two key resources.
There are goblins and ghouls that go bump in the night; and then there are BAS misconfigurations that give you a fright! For the last few Halloweens, we’ve collected some of your spookiest network horror stories. Read on for stories of:
What’s the problem with a “one-size fits all” solution? It usually fits nothing.
That’s why Optigo Connect networks are highly customizable and adaptive. With a wide variety of ways to alter the network design, Optigo can support all different building types.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) has long been linked with IP cameras, VoIP phones, and the like. Increasingly, though, the technology’s being adopted in more areas of traditional building automation. There’s even talk that PoE will drive the smart buildings of the future. Your building might already have lighting controls and fixtures, access control systems, and sensors or meters running on PoE.
VLANs and BBMDs seem at complete odds with each other. One’s meant to separate and segregate traffic. The other’s designed to broadcast messages across the network, without limit for which devices should get what messages.
BBMDs and VLANs do coexist on IP and MS/TP networks everywhere, and it’s important to know how to properly segregate traffic while making sure devices get the information they need.
Unresponsive Devices can cause a lot of unnecessary traffic on an Operational Technology network, but it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what’s causing the problem. Unresponsive Devices could be caused by a misconfiguration, a physical issue, or a combination of the two.
On our 10-Minute Webinar, we dug into top tips for finding and fixing Unresponsive Devices. Find out what usually causes these issues, and how you can resolve them.
