Beckhoff Automation’s recently introduced CPD courses have proved incredibly popular with attendees looking to learn more about converged building controls and building control communications protocols.

The courses focus on aspects of networking that can help to achieve energy efficient building operation in the long-term.
The first course offers an in-depth look at converged building controls and the industry standard BS EN 15232.
BS EN 15232 defines the effect of building automation control systems (BACS) on energy efficiency. The course shows how greater energy savings can be achieved through converging all aspects of room control, such as heating, cooling, ventilation and lighting, into a single platform.
As well as offering background information on the standard, the one-hour session provides insight into the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) and Part L of the Building Regulations.
The second course focuses on building control communication protocols and covers a range of common protocols such as DALI, KNX, BACnet,
