Carrier Corp. was recently honored by BACnet ® International with a “Leaders of the Pack” award at the 2010 Facility Decisions Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, Nev.

Carrier received the Fox Hound Award for its volunteerism in the BACnet community and its industry leading i-Vu® Open Control system, which combines state-of-the-art Carrier equipment, plug-and-play controllers, and the powerful, web-based i-Vu® user interface to form a cohesive, intuitive, and fully integrated BACnet® Building Automation System.

Carrier Corp., a unit of United Technologies Corp. is the world’s leader in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, improving the world around us through engineered innovation and environmental stewardship.

“We are very proud to receive recognition for advances in product innovation and our leadership in green buildings,” says Erv Lauterbach, president, Building Systems and Services, Carrier. “We are dedicated to producing and promoting innovative technologies that improve the usefulness of the BACnet standard and improve energy efficiency for the building systems market.”

In a press release announcing the awards, BACnet International noted that after formally joining BACnet International, “Carrier has made an immediate splash by participating in committees and tradeshows” and has “quickly and stealthily moved to the front of the pack.”

Carrier has been manufacturing BACnet-based products for over five years and has been active in the BACnet community but decided to join BACnet International in 2009 to further support the BACnet standard and evolving community.
