Automation Solutions

Automation in the Energy, Utilities and Transportation sectors are growing and our Ethernet and ARCNET products are being used in wind farms, tunnels, and gas fields. Our BACnet BAS Automation products are used for sub-metering of tenants within a single building. With a focus on alternate energy sources, there is no lack of need for reliable networking technology.

Contemporary Controls is unique in the industry by supplying products that maximize the benefits of both BACnet and Ethernet. BACnet, an internationally recognized building automation standard, can take you from the field level to the Internet. With buildings pre-wired for Ethernet, BACnet/IP is the ideal choice for building automation systems. Ethernet is everywhere and understood by many. With BASautomation – Building on BACnet and CTRlink – Ethernet Built for Buildings, Contemporary Controls provides the system building blocks for networking, integrating and controlling your building.

BASautomation BACnet routers link IP networks to BACnet MS/TP. Gateways adapt other protocols such as Modbus to BACnet. BACnet/IP controllers Powered by Sedona Framework and Niagara Framework do the work. Once on Ethernet, the CTRLink family – with its collection of managed and unmanaged switches, media converters, wired and wireless IP routers – can complete the connectivity process. With locations around the world, and a reputation for technical support, Contemporary Controls will make your building automation projects successful.
