      Specifying Building Automation Systems 


      • Purpose

      The purpose of this guideline is to provide recommendations for developing specifications for building automation systems in heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) control applications, as well as recommendations for specifying the integration of other building systems into a building automation system. 

      • Scope

      This guideline provides guidance for specifying the following aspects of a building automation system:

          • Direct digital control (DDC) for HVAC equipment control, monitoring, and management functions
        • DDC hardware performance and installation
        • System training
        • System architecture
        • Input/output structure
        • Communication
        • Program configuration
        • System testing
        • Documentation
        • Integration with other building systems such as lighting, fire and life safety, security, and factory-installed equipment controls
        • Integration with other enterprise level applications, such as facility management, preventive maintenance, or energy management systems.
    1. The guideline does not include specifying control of fire or life safety systems or equipment, nor does it include specifying security systems or enterprise level applications.
