Line-base code, not so scary?

IBC’s BMS Engineer, Szymon Drozdek, walks us through his experiences with RC controllers programming using line-base code. Scary or not?

Once I realised that the RC Controllers programming method is done by line-based code instead of Object-oriented, as I know from other well-known Building Automation Systems Manufacturers, I became very sceptical.

I think most BMS Engineers have very similar feelings when they hear about line-based code nowadays. These feelings create a major obstacle that is big enough to prevent technical staff from investigating the topic deeper and check if it is worthy to invest or not.
