Contemporary Controls designs and manufactures the system building blocks for networking, integrating and controlling automation processes where performance and reliability are important. Our products are built upon open technologies such as ARCNET®, BACnet®, Controller Area Network (CAN), Ethernet, Modbus®, Niagara Framework®, Sedona Framework™, and are typically found in building and industrial automation industries.
Our customers are systems integrators, contractors and mechanical and controls OEMs seeking simple and reliable networking and control products from a dependable source. With headquarters based in the US, we have operations in the UK, Germany and China with self-manufacturing in the US and China.
Using our BASgatewayLX to integrate Modbus devices can't get any easier because our sales manager, Joe, has developed a Modbus Device Profile Library for more than 100 popular product models, which saves you hours of development time because you don't have to create your own device profiles on a point-by-point basis.
Our concept of a truly open controller is one which uses BACnet — an open protocol, an open source drag and drop component based programming language — Sedona, as well as an unrestricted programming tool — our free Sedona Application Editor. Our BAScontrol family of products provide all of the features necessary for a truly open controller.
Our diagnostic switch is an Ethernet switch with hub functionality. Yes, we purposely "broke" the address learning functionality of the switch so that all messages - directed, multicast, broadcast - are flooded to all ports on the switch allowing a protocol analyzer tool such as Wireshark® the ability to observe all traffic on the network.
