The BAS Remote Adds Powered by Sedona Framework™ ControllerThe BAS Remote Adds Powered by Sedona Framework™ Controller

Contemporary Controls, a leading manufacturer of Ethernet technologies used in automation, has added Tridium’s function block Sedona Framework to the BAS Remote, thereby providing the product with controller capability.  The BAS Remote is known as a versatile building automation appliance because it can function as a BACnet/IP and Modbus TCP remote I/O, a Modbus serial to Modbus TCP router, and it can be configured via web pages.  With the addition of a Sedona virtual machine (SVM) in the BAS Remote, the BAS Remote can now execute stand-alone control schemes while benefiting from the ease of drag-and-drop programming. The BAS Remote retains its web server configuration capability and its ability to communicate over a BACnet/IP network while functioning as a true application specific controller (ASC).
