ASHRAE GUIDELINE 13
Specifying Building Automation Systems
|Publication Date:||1 January 2015|
This guideline covers building automation systems (BASs) for HVAC control, monitoring, and management functions. The guideline specifies hardware performance, installation, and training. It also addresses system architecture, input/output structure, communication, program configuration, system testing, and documentation. The guideline only includes examples of how to integrate to fire, life safety, lighting, and other systems. The design and specification of these non- HVAC systems is not part of this document. There is also no specification of facility management functions, as this is beyond the scope of this document.
The purpose of this guideline is to provide recommendations for developing specifications for building automation systems (BASs) in heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) control applications.
