BASremoteContemporary Controls - The BASremote is Even More Flexible

The BASremote has evolved over the years from its original intent as a BACnet/IP remote I/O device. We were one of the first to add a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) option ― allowing the device to operate without the need for control panel power. Next we added Modbus RTU to BACnet/IP gateway functionality which greatly expanded the point handling capability of the unit. Then we added Modbus TCP to Modbus RTU routing ― providing the BASremote with Modbus TCP client capability. Next, we added a Sedona Framework virtual machine (SVM) eventually obtaining Sedona 1.2 certification ― making the BASremote a freely-programmable B-ASC controller. The Linux-based BASremote is appropriately identified as a versatile BACnet/IP controller/gateway, but we did not stop there. By listening to our customers we are releasing several new features.

BASremotes with firmware release 3.7.7 have these added features: ◾Simplified trending ◾Authentication ◾Secure email notifications ◾Convenient firmware upgrades

New Miniature Air Flow Transmitter for HVACE+E Press Release: New Miniature Air Flow Transmitter for HVAC

The new transmitter EE671 measures air velocity up to 20 m/s. Thanks to its compact design it is ideal for mass applications in HVAC. The flow sensing element sets new standards in terms of accuracy and resistance to pollutants.  The built-in VTQ flow sensing element based on thin-film technology works on the hot-film anemometer principle. Thanks to its innovative design - made possible by the use of the latest transfer molding technology - the sensor is particularly resistant to contamination. A high reproducibility of the sensor characteristics, fast response time, low angle dependence and excellent long-term stability are further advantages of the high-quality sensing element.

ClassTi;meClassTime Bridges the Gap Between the Building Automation System and Student Registration Software

How much energy could be saved if educational facilities operated their HVAC systems only while classrooms are in use? ClassTime software  keeps building automation system  schedules synchronized to student registration software to optimize building performance.  As changes are made to class registration schedules, HVAC systems and lighting controls are automatically adjusted accordingly. By reducing energy used in unocccupied classrooms and lecture halls, ClassTime software can account for 5% - 10% in energy savings across a campus.  Further savings can be realized by eliminating the need for coordination between administrative personnel and facility managers, as well as manual entry of changes to building automation system schedules.
