BASpi Control Without Restrictions

Product Overview

The BASpi I/O boards are 12-point BAS expansion boards (HATs) for Raspberry Pi. The I/O board, plus the firmware files provided by Contemporary Controls turn your Raspberry Pi into a BACnet-networked, Sedona-programmable controller with 6 Universal Inputs and a choice of 6 Relay Outputs or 4 Relay and 2 Analog Outputs depending on model.

All 12 physical I/O points, in addition to 24 Virtual Points are served up over BACnet/IP using Ethernet or Wi-Fi. BASpi is web page configurable over Ethernet or Wi-Fi connections. The Sedona Application Editor (SAE) is offered as part of the free BAScontrol Toolset. This programming tool is used to create control applications by linking graphical components on a wire sheet. In addition to SAE, BASemulator gives you BASpi software emulation for PC and BASbackup allows you to backup and restore your entire BASpi project to a zip file.

The BASpi I/O board is available stand-alone, as well as a complete system — the BASpi-SYS (only available with 6U6R board), which is packaged with RaspberryPi 3 board + BASpi I/O 6U6R board for immediate control right out of the box.

Product Details

BASpi I/O board is compatible with Raspberry Pi 3 or 4 and requires a Raspbian with Desktop installation, as well as firmware files provided by Contemporary Controls. The firmware will only run if the BASpi-IO board hardware is installed on the Raspberry Pi.

The BASpi-SYS6U6R is everything you need, all pre-configured and ready of the box. It includes a Raspberry Pi3, an enclosure, and our BASpi-IO board already mounted and secured on the Pi using 4 screws. We have also installed an industrial grade pSLC micro SD card for increased system stability. The card is pre-written with the latest Raspbian Stretch with Desktop OS as well as the necessary BASpi firmware files pre-installed for you. Also included in BASpi- SYS is the official Raspberry Pi international wall wart power supply which provides plenty of power for any project, anywhere around the world. For mounting the BASpi-SYS, a DIN-rail mount clip is also included. All of this has been packaged together for you and will work right out of the box, all you would need to do is apply power and connect.

Both BASpi-IO models and BASpi-SYS are supported by the free BAScontrol Toolset including Sedona Application Editor, BASbackup, and BASemulator as software support.
