Don't Miss Our BASautomation Training

SPECIAL NOTICE: The April session of Hands on BASautomation Training has been postponed due to concerns about COVID-19. The training will be rescheduled. If you would like to receive an email with the new schedule, please contact Nicole via email at or call 630-963-7070 extention 107. Thank you for your understanding.

Registration is now open for our a two-day hands-on BASautomation training session at the College of DuPage (COD) in Glen Ellyn, Illinois April 7-8, 2020. The training will focus on what you need to know to apply our BASautomation products in real-world applications. Our goal is to help you "Build on BACnet" for your building automation and energy management systems.

The hands-on training will cover:

  • An introduction to BACnet networked DDC Controllers
  • Interfacing to Input/Output devices such as sensors, switches, motors, dampers, etc.
  • Creating applications using wire sheets and powerful drag-and-drop function blocks
  • Routers and their ability to route messages between BACnet/IP, BACnet Ethernet, and BACnet MS/TP networks
  • Gateways, which can provide an interface to "foreign" devices (such as Modbus) and allow them to appear as part of the BACnet network
  • Using BASview supervisor to provide a visual interface to your process
  • Obtaining secure remote access to your job site using Virtual Private Networking (VPN)

Taught by an industry expert in the new 50-million-dollar Technical Education Center (TEC) on the college campus, this course promises to give participants a grasp of how to facilitate a robust and low-cost HVACR/BAS automation system with controller programming, network integration, building supervision, and secure remote access. Students will be given a BASautomation Product Training Certificate at completion, a booklet/workbook with course material for future reference, and a link to a 30-day after-class live discussion thread on our Building Automation Blog where the presenters will be available to answer any questions which may come up.

The response to this instructional opportunity has been gratifying and many organizations and individuals have already registered. Space is limited, but as of this writing there are still a few seats available. Deadline for registration is March 20, 2020. For more information, visit the BASautomation training page.
