VDI 3805 / ISO 16757 compliant digital product data for HVAC

Electronic product data exchange with VDI 3805 for HVAC & MEP

VDI 3805 is a guideline series for the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) sector that acts as a standardised exchange format between the CAD and calculation software. This enables the correct dimensioning of components and systems for heating, room air, sanitary, building automation and electrical engineering.

VDI 3805 / ISO 16757 standardizes the collection of the required data in order to cover different tasks with access to a standardized product data model. On the basis of the standardised data model, calculations, planning, simulations and analyses as well as the operation of HVAC systems can be carried out.

As an open data exchange format, VDI 3805 offers planners all the manufacturer-specific, geometric and alphanumeric information required for the correct dimensioning of components, as well as dynamic functions, regardless of the CAD software in use. A conversion of VDI 3805 into the international standard ISO 16757 is already in progress.

Unsere VDI3805 Experten

We are actively shaping the position paper & PDTs of VDI 3805

Together with different associations, manufacturers and cooperation partners, we play a leading role in the preparation of the VDI position paper as well as the respective technical product sheets and thus define the framework conditions of the HVAC sector with regard to the implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM).

We are technology partners of ARGE Neue Medien & VDMA

In various sub-working groups and working groups we support the VDI 3805 guideline development. In our function as standardization coordinator we are a member of the steering committee "BIM for electrical engineering and building automation".
