The mass popularity of powerful micro PCs such as the Raspberry Pi brings low-cost computing power to technical professionals and hobbyists alike. Suitable for most field installations, they also provide an excellent training and experimental platform for individuals interested in controls and automation. Contemporary Controls, committed to open controls, is contributing to this effort by offering controller products under the BASpi name which are powered by the Raspberry Pi.
The Edge Controller series has been expanded to include the BASiot-Edge Controllers. These 12-point cloud connected BACnet controllers utilize eMMC flash for robust data storage with drag/drop programming and IoT capabilities to deliver BACnet client/server communication over Ethernet with cloud connection to Azure and AWS.
