Contemporary Controls has developed the BAScontrol Toolset, which is a set of tools to develop, store and restore application programs for the BAScontrol series of controllers and the BASpi. The BAScontrol series of controllers is built on Sedona - a license-free software environment where components deployed in kits are assembled onto a wire sheet to create applications. The toolset is stored in a Contemporary Controls folder on a Windows PC sharing a common data folder of Tridium 1.2 release kits along with Contemporary Controls' custom hardware-dependent and hardware-independent kits. Kits can be updated or added to the data folder at any time without impacting the toolset.

The following tools are included in the BAScontrol Programming Toolset.
The Sedona Application Editor (SAE) is the Sedona tool used to create custom applications in the Sedona environment. Using graphical means, components residing in kits are dragged onto a wire sheet, configured and interconnected with other components to create applications. By keeping the kits database updated with the latest kits, SAE can program any model within the BAScontrol and BASremote series of controllers. Learn more.
The BASemulator is a handy utility that works in conjunction with the Sedona Application Editor (SAE) and BASbackup - BAScontrol Project Utility. BASemulator can emulate on a Windows PC the operation of any of the controllers in the BAScontrol series - BAScontro20 and BAScontrol22. All real, virtual and web points including Sedona logic in a BAScontroller can be viewed with SAE as if it was the actual controller. All web pages used for displaying point status and for configuration appear on your web browser as if it was the actual controller. Learn more.
The BASbackup provides a convenient way of storing and restoring a BAScontrol project to a desktop or laptop computer. Although you can store and restore a Sedona application with the Sedona Application Editor, a BAScontroller has IP addressing and BACnet configuration files that are unrelated to Sedona. With BASbackup you can save both Sedona application files and configuration files on the BAScontrol making a comprehensive copy of your BAScontrol project. Learn more.
