Contemporary Controls to Introduce Additional Open Sedona Controllers at AHR Expo 2017
During AHR Expo 2017 in Las Vegas, Contemporary Controls will be featuring our expanded BAScontrol Series of BACnet controllers that can be freely programmed using a Sedona Tool like Niagara Workbench or Sedona Applications Editor (SAE).
“The BAScontrol Series has been very popular with our customers looking for a controller that supports both BACnet/IP and Sedona Framework (SOX) protocols via an Ethernet connection,” said Joe Stasiek, Sales Manager. “The new controllers we added to the series share the same common core of features and differ only by I/O count or network connections.”
The new BAScontrol22S is a BACnet MS/TP Sedona Unitary controller and the new BAScontrolZ is a BACnet client controller used to drive remote I/O systems from third-party vendors such as Metz Connect and Functional Devices. All BAScontrollers comply with Contemporary Controls’ vision of an open controller:
In addition to BACnet server compliance (B-ASC), all BAScontrollers
have a common core of Sedona components – 68 from Tridium Sedona 1.2
release, and 88 from Contemporary Controls. Using a Sedona tool,
components are placed onto a wire sheet, configured, and then
interconnected via links to create an application. Program
changes are immediately realized speeding commissioning.
Contemporary Controls has developed components that pass wire sheet
data to web browsers or BACnet clients for increased
functionality. Now a new component called the NetV provides
BACnet client functionality to any BACnet/IP or BACnet MS/TP server
device thereby allowing a Sedona wire sheet on a BACnet client to drive
inexpensive BACnet remote I/O devices distributed through a plant or
The BAScontrol22S has the same basic functionality as the BAScontrol22. However, instead of two Ethernet ports on the BAScontrol22, the BAScontrol22S has one Ethernet port for programming and troubleshooting and one MS/TP port for communications. The BAScontrol22S appears as a freely programmable BACnet server device on the MS/TP network.
The BAScontrolZ has much the same functionality as the BAScontrol22S having one Ethernet port and one MS/TP port except it has no I/O. Instead it gains BACnet client functionality to drive both BACnet/IP and BACnet MS/TP server I/O devices by incorporating the new NetV component. For convenience, Contemporary Controls has developed custom Sedona components to handle both Metz Connect Cube I/O and Functional Devices RIB MS/TP I/O. For other devices, multiple NetV components can be used instead. The BAScontrolZ is a compact fully-featured Sedona controller that can be adapted to a host of remote I/O devices that lack the ability to execute programs.
