This one's for Japan

Several years ago the BACnet committee received a request for a new capability from the Institute of Electrical Installation Engineers of Japan (IEIEJ), via the ISO/TC205/WG3 committee. As presented by Mr. Toyoda and Mr. Honda ("a driving force for BACnet" is how they introduced themselves in ISO/TC205/WG3 a long time ago), the overall capability was labeled ExternalModeNotification and was comprised a number of elements, many of which have already been added to the standard (the TrendLogMultiple object is one such case).

The last major piece was discussed by the final session of the Objects & Services Working Group this morning, taking up most of the allocated time. But it was worth it to get it much nearer to publication and the OS-WG voted it up for disposition.

Hopefully it won't be long before we can report to the IEIEJ that this request has been filled.
