BACnet Two Pane Viewer

Windows Client Software for BACnet Systems

If you're an end-user or installer of BACnet systems, you know how complex and costly it can be to set up even simple color graphic screens. Even then, it can be difficult to get high-end software working and inter-operating across vendors. Automatic discovery tools are fine, but a lot of the time you already know specific groups of points you want to see over and over all the time. You just want an easy way to set up some simple screens without having to understand every option known to man. You probably don't have the time to become that much of an expert. You need fast and reliable tools to help you get right into communicating with BACnet devices and focus on solving your application problems. You need helpful, flexible tools that really work, that you can easily customize, at a price that won't blow your budget. You need BACvu™.

 

BACvu is an easy-to-use, all-purpose BACnet point viewer, and simple workstation software for Windows. BACvu runs under Windows 7,8,10, Server 2008/2012 and XP, and provides a robust set of client features tailored to the needs of end-users, installers and product testers.

 

BACvu uses our famous sixth-generation BACdoor Client technology to deliver fast and reliable performance. BACvu works with BACnet/IP over Ethernet, and you can even use MS/TP through USB or any standard serial COM port, with an external EIA-485 converter. For legacy applications, you can use Ethernet 8802-3 and ARCNET local area network types with NDIS-compliant drivers, or PTP through any standard serial COM port.

 

BACvu let's you easily organize your projects into a hierarchy of screens, as many as you like. Each screen has a list of "points" that represent BACnet object-property values. Each one has a description and continuously refreshes while you are watching. Points automatically colorize based on status, and show optional engineering units and "human" state values (like "off" and "on" instead of 0 and 1). You can even capture screen data to a file or print it for documentation. Alarm and warning values can also trigger emails to alert you when things happen.

 

BACvu also lets you easily modify values right on-screen. You can modify Binary, Multi-state and Analog point types. Commandable points are also easily managed via a simple popup selector.

 

Setting up screens is fast and easy. You can create and edit them by hand, or drag and drop from a "points list" for each device. You can even import points from text or spreadsheet files.

 

Configuration is also easy from a master settings screen.
