Sedona Framework™ Downloads

Sedona Application Editor (SAE) - Allows graphical development of control applications for Sedona devices like Contemporary Controls' BAScontrol20, 22 and BASremote. Included with the download is a Sedona Virtual Machine (SVM) that runs on your PC so that you can experience the simplicity of developing Sedona applications with SAE without first needing to purchase a Sedona controller.

Using the Sedona Project Backup and Restore Utility
BASbackup-our Sedona Project Backup and Restore utility-has been updated to simplify the backup and restore operations of BAScontrol Series controllers. Usually Workbench is used to save Sedona application files but with BASbackup saving and restoring can now be accomplished without the need of Workbench. All BAScontrol Series configuration files-not just Sedona application files-can now be saved in one simple zip file for easy project retention and recovery.

To use Niagara Workbench as a Sedona Tool your computer must have a copy of either Workbench 3.7 or 3.8 and must also have a proper installation of Sedona Framework and a Component Bundle-both available via the links below.

  • Adding Sedona Framework to the Workbench Tool

    The Niagara Workbench tool can be used to create wire sheets on a Sedona compliant controller such as the BASremote or the BAScontrol series assuming Sedona Framework is installed in the tool. If in Workbench you can do a File > Open > Open Device operation then Sedona is installed. If not, you can install Sedona Framework into Workbench by following the instructions in our video entitled Installing Sedona Framework and Kits.

    The Niagara Workbench tool may come with different names depending upon where the product was obtained. Sedona Framework is provided on one zip file and can be loaded into Workbench versions 3.8 or 3.7. There are different installs for each version so make sure you download the proper version for your tool. Watch the video and follow the instructions. Once Sedona Framework is installed go to the second step in the process entitled Adding Component Bundles to the Workbench Tool below.

  • Adding Component Bundles to the Workbench Tool

    A Sedona controller has a particular personality that describes its features and capabilities. In the jargon of Sedona Framework, a controller is described by its Platform, Kits and Manifests. We simply use the term Kits to describe this personality and the term Component Bundle to indicate what actually must be loaded into the Workbench tool so that the tool understands the personality of the Sedona controller to which it is connected. The Component Bundle contains components for all Contemporary Controls' Sedona controllers and comes as a zip file referenced by a version number. As more capabilities are added to Sedona controllers in the form of additional kits or revised kits, a new Component Bundle is created that reflects the capabilities of current and former versions of Sedona controllers. The component bundle version number is then incremented. To install a component bundle into the Workbench tool follow the instructions in the video entitled Installing Sedona Framework and Kits.

    ZIP Icon  Free Download:  Component Bundle 1.0.20 for BAScontrol20 versions 3.0.25 or greater and BASremote versions 3.4.8 or greater.*

ARCNET Software Downloads

ARC20 Sample "C" Language Source Code - ARC20 is a set of DOS software driver routines that provide an easy way to start using our COM20020-based ARCNET interface adapters. These allow you to initialize, read, write, and get the status of the network. Along with your application code, these routines provide a basis for a complete ARCNET DOS application. Sample applications and source code are provided for all routines.

ARCshark - Captures all ARCNET messages and saves them in a file format compatible with Wireshark

DI-SDK -This is a set of files for those developing software for use with the AI-SRVR, AI-USB, PCI20U, PCI20EX, and USB22.

DLL for Visual Basic access to ARCNET - Normally, Contemporary Controls Null Stack drivers interface to Visual C/C++ 32-bit applications. However, this DLL allows Visual Basic 6.0 applications running on Windows® 95/98/ME/2K/XP to communicate through ARCNET NIMs that use COM20020/22 ARCNET controllers.

FIND PCI - PCI devices have their resource settings automatically assigned either by the BIOS or by Windows. Determining these settings in Windows is easy with DeviceManager, but when running DOS these parameters can be difficult to determine. FINDPCI.EXE overcomes this difficulty.

IRQ Test - This is a DOS utility that tests the I/O and IRQ settings for the card. It is ONLY for cards that use a COM2002x ARCNET controller chip.

NETMAP - This DOS utility lists all nodes currently on the ARCNET, regardless of the type of card at each node. However, the program must RUN from a station that accesses the ARCNET via a card that uses a COM2002x ARCNET controller chip.

PCX Test - This is a DOS utility that exercises the I/O, memory and IRQ settings on PCX, PCA66 or PC10466 cards. This is the ONLY utility available from Contemporary Controls for these cards.

Setnode - This is a DOS utility that allows the Node ID for a PCM2x card to be set despite the absence of a Node ID switch. It is ONLY for Windows 95/98/ME. On reboot the card's Node ID buffer defaults to a value of FF (255). Hence, if a Node ID value other than 255 is desired, SETNODE.EXE must be used each time the host computer is rebooted.
