BASrouter 3.0 Provides Enhanced Diagnostics

BACnet users will find the robust BASrouter from Contemporary Controls even more versatile with the enhanced diagnostic capability offered in software version 3.0. The BASrouter provides stand-alone routing between BACnet networks such as BACnet/IP, BACnet Ethernet, and BACnet MS/TP, allowing the system integrator to mix BACnet network technologies within a single network. Field proven circuit design and up-to-date ANSI/ASHRAE BACnet standard operation provide unbeatable reliability.

Building on this proven reliability, we have enhanced the BASrouter features to provide built-in BACnet diagnostic capabilities with visual analytics that include an MS/TP status table, routing status table, network error counts, and traffic statistics. The new features allow the integrator to install robust BACnet networks with rapid troubleshooting capabilities that easily identify network issues.

"The BASrouter is a favorite product with our system integrators because its DIN rail mounted, housed in a metal (not plastic) case, and simple to power from an AC or DC source, "said Joe Stasiek, Sales Manager. "The new diagnostics let integrators connect to a system quickly and identify which units are online and which are not. Traffic can be monitored easily, and MS/TP issues can be tracked down rapidly."
