In this Six Part smart building controls training series, we will introduce you to the world of building automation controls. If you are new to smart building and building automation controls, this video training series will give you a solid understanding of this exciting branch of HVAC controls. We will post a new episode every week, so check back for episode two.
The Functional Devices RIBR Series are DIN mounted 10 amp pilot control relays. The Functional Devices DIN Rail Mount Relay in a Box ® features a removable socket relay for easy replacement as well as a 10 amp contact rating and comes in 10-30 VAC/DC or 24 VAC coil voltages. These multi-coil voltages are suitable for a wide variety of applications [Read more…]

We had a chance to catch up with Honeywell’s Steve Hoffman at the 2018 Honeywell Momentum Event. Steve works with consulting engineers making sure they understand the value Honeywell brings to the Smart Buildings Controls market. In this video, Steve shares what we need to know about IP controllers and what makes Honeywell’s new IP controllers special.
Introducing the P864 Edge controller that operates building equipment autonomously and expands up to 8 IO modules total (144 hardware points). Connectivity is made easy via BACnet IP (PoE), MS/TP, and MS/ TP routing. Applications include HVAC, central plant, lighting and hydraulic systems control and monitoring.
When coupled with Optergy’s software and 50 built-in applications, contractors have a complete solution for Smart Controls, Smart Metering, Utilities billing, Afterhours Billing, Automated Reporting, Live Dashboards and Foyer Displays.
Optergy’s built-in applications reduces engineering costs and enables contractors to offer value added solutions at a competitive price.
Optergy ensures you stay ahead of the game.
With only 3 physical parts to stock the P864 can transform from a unitary controller to a VAV controller to a plant controller all with a fraction of the price of commercially available choices.
Contemporary Controls is excited to announce that their BAScontrol22 and BAScontrol Toolset were utilized at a 4-day course on Building Automation Systems (BAS) taught at the newly completed International Training and Conference Center in Cosby Texas. This 237-acre facility is the largest and most comprehensive training facility for union Operating and Stationary Engineers in North America.
Students were taught using the BAScontrol22. Topics included basic control theory, wiring and connecting controllers, DDC device configuration, and HVAC/R system controls. Wire sheets were created using the BAScontrol Toolset, which was perfect for this training event. The open-source Sedona Application Editor (SAE) embedded in the toolset allowed the students to create wire sheets and configure and interconnect components to create applications. The included BASemulator allowed students to then emulate on a Windows PC the operation of any of the controllers in the BAScontrol series. They could practice on their own time, complete homework assignments, or simply improve their control sequences at their convenience.
BASbackup — the BAScontrol Project Utility, (included in the Toolset) allowed students to back-up the work they had done on the emulation platform and restore the entire project (Sedona application files and device configuration files) onto the real BAScontrol22 in the classroom and observe their application working on a real device.
Contemporary Controls is committed to open source building automation solutions to reduce the cost of implementing solutions for our customers and extend the range of applications that can interact without restrictions. We were pleased to be chosen as a partner for this hands-on training session.
