What is a BASview and Why Should You Care?

BASviewSeptember 2014 - During a recent presentation of the BASview, one of the attendees remarked, "you can use the BASview to do an application without attending a 5 day training session and passing an exam." Yes, it is an easy to understand and configure a BASview application using its stand-alone, embedded, web-based graphical interface. No special software required. Supporting up to 2,000 nodes the BASview is ideal for small to medium applications that require a simple-to-use graphical interface with no licensing requirements.

Key benefits include:

  • No software licensing requirements, included standard drivers are:
    • BACnet/IP
    • Modbus TCP
      • Optional Module Drivers
      • BACnet MS/TP
      • Modbus RTU
  • 2,000 tree nodes which can be any combination of points, graphics, trends, etc.
  • Animated graphics
  • Trend collection, display and export
  • Alarm condition monitoring with email notification
  • Internally maintained schedules with sunrise/sunset and stagger offsets
  • Runtime accumulation with email notification
  • Calculated point values (average, min, max, etc)
  • Python programming language for controlling equipment
  • Database of up to 100 users and 100 user groups
  • Multiple simultaneous users
  • Activity log for tracking important user actions
  • Template system for quickly cloning points, graphics, devices or entire networks
  • Calculations may be performed on data points
  • Support for mobile devices

In addition to having extensive functionality the BASview is easily configured. If you are using BACnet you just discover the BACnet devices, and then discover the BACnet points. Now just drag the points onto the trend charts, into the alarms, the scheduling screen, or onto the graphic components. Use the template facility to duplicate repetitive functions like trends and graphics to minimize development time. Help screens are available on board to guide you throughout the entire configuration process. Most of the time, the configuration requirements are intuitively obvious.
