Over recent years, there has been a rapid transition from serial (RS232, RS422 and RS485) to Ethernet based BMS Systems. This sudden change in the way that PCs, outstations and controllers are networked together has left some companies in need of assistance with Ethernet / IP network design.

Amplicon have worked with many high-profile building controls manufacturers and installers to produce high reliability networks. In this guide, we share all of the most useful tips, tricks and solutions as well as delivering a jargon free introduction to networking basics – everything you need to know to get the job done with minimal IT jingo!

Below you will find a short introduction to the networking principals and concepts that are important to the typical BMS engineer. Whilst this section is not exhaustive, it provides a very good indication of the protocols and technologies that should be considered for further study.

Here you will also fins a series of networking solutions, tips and tricks that could save you time and money or provide a project winning idea.
