LabVIEW over BACnet, a New Approach for Electromechanical Equipment Remote Monitoring System
BACnet is a standard data communication protocol designed specifically for building automation and control systems. In BACnet network, each device is modeled as a collection of network-accessible, data structure called “objects”. LabVIEW is a graphical development environment for creating flexible data acquisition, device control and industrial automation applications at minimal cost. In this study, a remote monitoring system based on LabVIEW and BACnet was proposed, in which electromechanical equipment is described by a series of BACnet objects and LabVIEW provides a friendly unified human-computer interface for users. In order to evaluate the feasibility of this system, an experimental model was developed. Due to the characteristic of device-independent, not only can extend the scope of BACnet application, but also make different equipments monitored under the same platform becomes possible.
