Cincinnati, OH – The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech launches its BAS-3000 series; designed for Facility Monitoring & Control Systems and Energy Management Applications. With web-enabled devices, the BAS-3000 series provides easy access & remote management capabilities through an Ethernet connection with a friendly browser-based interface, offline simulation, and online debugging. In addition, all control modules in this series support both local and remote I/O expansion to increase flexibility and offer auto-tuning PID control allowing engineers to operate much easier.
The BAS-series consists of the BAS-3512/3520 Direct Digital Controllers; these are stand-alone programmable controllers delivering various onboard I/O, which provides flexible options to satisfy versatile application requirements. Secondly, the BAS-3520/3521 expansion I/O modules can be stacked on the DDC controller or can serve as a remote stand-alone I/O through an RS-485 network. Lastly, BASpro, is a free programming software package integrated with BAS-3520/3521 DDC.
Developers can benefit from BASPro’s ease of use, allowing them to develop programs quickly, mainly due to user-friendly GUI. BASPro delivers powerful and flexible function blocks, such as scheduler, HVAC calculation, sequential control, PID control, alarm, message, etc. thus, eliminating the need to write program code
