Wow... just went to a popular online distributor of Lon based components to show a prospective buyer the competitive pricing and functionality of Lon controls compared to proprietary Bacnet systems. I hadnt checked pricing there in quite a while but today I found all ASC at exactly double what they were less than a year ago. All ASCs averaged around $450. (all manufacturers as well) The guy looked at me like I was goofy.
Did the pricing structure change that dramatically for these recently? Maybe because the new government guidelines these companies are starting to gouge? Anyone know whats up with that?
This guy runs that facilities at a large college with over 100 buildings and is being abused by proprietary Bacnet people. I tried to convince him of the virtues of Lon until I showed him the pricing.
