Truly Open BACnet Controllers Built on the Sedona Framework
There are many BACnet controllers on the market which utilize a closed/restricted programming tool with a proprietary programming language. Our concept of a truly open controller is one which uses BACnet, an open protocol, an open source drag and drop component based programming language - Sedona, as well as an unrestricted programming tool - our free Sedona Application Editor. Our BAScontrol family of products provide all of the features necessary for a truly open controller. Learn more.
BASgatewayLX — Modbus to BACnet® Converter
Modbus remains a popular network interface. It is commonly found on jobs such as boiler control, variable speed drives, and metering applications, but these devices lack BACnet compliance. To make Modbus devices appear as individual BACnet devices, a BASgatewayLX is used. This device has one 10/100 Mbps Modbus TCP or BACnet/IP Ethernet port and an opto-isolated Modbus EIA-485 serial port for Modbus RTU or Modbus ASCII devices. Learn more.
BAS Router — BACnet® Multi-Network Router
Contemporary Controls provides several BACnet routing solutions for your integration requirements. The compact and durable BASrouter provides stand-alone routing between BACnet networks such as BACnet/IP, BACnet Ethernet, and BACnet MS/TP — thereby allowing the system integrator to mix BACnet network technologies within a single BACnet internetwork. Router configuration is accomplished via web page. Diagnostic web page displays statistics about the MS/TP bus which allows the System Integrator to analyze and ensure the stability of the MS/TP network segment as well as resolve existing network issues if necessary. A Routing Table web page contains information about the network topology of the surrounding network, destination network, network status, network type, etc. — making network troubleshooting faster and easier.
