BAS Remote Master Can Be Expanded to a Total of 32 Universal I/O Points and 8 Relay Contacts
Downers Grove, IL (June 24, 2008) - Contemporary Controls new BAS Remote Expansion Modules (BASR-8X) can be daisy-chained together to the BAS Remote Master (BASR-8M) to meet specific I/O requirements at a cost and space savings. With the addition of three compact BASR-8X modules, the BASR-8M can be expanded to a total of 32 Universal I/O points and 8 relay contacts to suit any building automation installation.
The configurable Universal I/O can support BACnet®/IP or Modbus/TCP points. They are both analog inputs and analog outputs, in addition to accommodating a contact closure. Digital inputs can accept pulse trains in the range of 0 to 40 Hz (50% duty cycle) to measure flow rates.
Unlike conventional expansion modules, the web page that resides in the master allows users to configure each of the expansion ports without requiring dip switches.
The BASR-8X offers a total BACnet® solution at a $295 price with availability scheduled for mid-August.
