For those of you attending AHR Expo 2018, be sure to stop by booth 4118 to register for your chance to win a free BASpi. If you're like us and love a new toy, then the BASpi is going to be your favorite part of AHR. It's control without restrictions.
The BASpi I/O board is a 12-point BAS expansion board for Raspberry Pi. The I/O board, plus the firmware files provided by Contemporary Controls turn your Raspberry Pi into a BACnet-networked, Sedona-programmable controller with 6 Universal Inputs and 6 Relay Outputs. All 12 physical I/O points, in addition to 24 Virtual Points are served up over BACnet/IP using Ethernet or Wi-Fi. BASpi is web page configurable over Ethernet or Wi-Fi connections. The Sedona Application Editor is offered as a free download. This programming tool is used to create control applications by linking graphical components on a wiresheet. The BASpi I/O board is available stand-alone, as well as a complete system — the BASpi-SYS, which is packaged with RaspberryPi 3 board + BASpi I/O board for immediate control right out of the box.
The BASpi is part of our grander vision of being a champion for open control. We'll have our full suite of BAScontrollers at AHR and we'll be showcasing the free BAScontrol Toolset and free pre-built applications that support the BAScontrol series. The free software and programming expertise we provide greatly reduces the amount of time an SI needs to spend with set-up and testing.
For our BACnet router fans, be sure to check out the advanced features that come with BASrouter Series Version 3.0. We have enhanced the BASrouter features to provide built-in BACnet diagnostic capabilities with visual analytics MS/TP status table, routing status table, network errors count, and traffic statistics. This allows the integrator to easily install robust BACnet networks, or speed up troubleshooting drastically when necessary.
We love to greet our customers, so be sure to stop by and say hello. And don't forget to register to win the free BASpi – we'll be giving away several during the show. See you in booth 4118!
