There are many BACnet controllers on the market that utilize a closed/restricted programming tool with a proprietary programming language. Our concept of a truly open controller is one that 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.
The BASremote is versatile in that it is both a controller and gateway. Up to 63 half-load Modbus serial devices can be connected to the BASremote. Modbus device profiles for common Modbus devices are available from Contemporary Controls.
