A reminder from our friends at KMC
“As announced last year, end of life for the legacy BACnet controllers BAC-58XX and VAV’s BAC-7XXX is less than 2 weeks away. I know you may already be using the next generation Conquest controllers…but I wanted to send one last reminder.
If you need to order these devices you must place your order no later than May 1, 2017…or sooner.”
