Granite State Chapter of ASHRAE
Event Notice
October 12th, 2017

On Thursday October 12th, we will be having our first meeting at the Viega training facility in Nashua and will be hosting David Turner of XL Communications, a leader in building automation software.

The building automation market has been characterized by proprietary software and control hardware, making it difficult to mix vendors and modify controls. This has resulted in customers becoming locked into expensive contracts and costly upgrades over the life of their systems. This presentation will demonstrate how a building automation control system can be built on a open integration platform utilizing non-proprietary controls.

By implementing a building automation system on an open hardware and software platform, customers can reduce both initial implementation costs, as well as long term savings while increasing functionality, flexibility, and system longevity. This presentation will reveal how an open controls platform can be achieved, how multiple systems can be specified to work within the open framework, and the benefits of enabling multiple service providers for future upgrades or changes.

For those of you involved or interested in the building automation market, this is a "must see" presentation. We hope to see you at this month's event, and thanks for your continued interest and support in our ASHRAE chapter.
