ASI Controls also welcomes:

James Poston

Quality Assurance Engineer


Tyler Drazich

Senior Engineer

There are a few spots left for the next Essential Training class scheduled for APRIL 23-27, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Essential Training is a four-day course that teaches you how to program our ASIC/1 and ASIC/3 controllers and engineer a project using our IntelliFront front end. For customers seeking IntelliFront certification, there is a certification lab exercise on day five. Essential Training is a pre-requisite for Advanced Training classes. This course is intended for new users to learn how to design and configure control systems using ASI Controls products.

We know that people come and go and that sometimes mission-critical information doesn’t always reach the right person in time. We also understand the frustration of wishing you had information earlier.

ASI is currently improving its process for communicating firmware updates, bug fixes, and essential product information to our customers. To provide the most up-to-the-minute information on our products, we need to know who to contact. Help us get critical technical information to your organization by filling out the form below.

Don’t worry, we won’t spam your contact(s) with marketing or other non-essential information. They will only receive what they absolutely need to know about our products; and of course, they may unsubscribe at any time.

ASI is now shipping the ASIC/1-6100 with new firmware. This firmware version requires some file updates for ASI Expert. Users need to download the TCL and MDB files to ensure proper operation. Without the TCL file, a lot of firmware revision dependencies will fail and the display will not function properly. Without the asic1.mdb update, the new TCL will fail because some new parameters are referenced.

Log in to your Partner Portal account to download the ZIP files. They are listed under ASI Expert on the Datasheets page.

Next generation controllers which seamlessly integrate into existing building automation networks

ASI Controls Inc. received BACnet B-BC certification for its line of fully-programmable controllers. As commercial HVAC becomes more complex, cross-brand communication between controllers across a BACnet protocol has become a mandatory requirement for nearly every project. The BACnet Labs B-BC certification allows ASI to provide a powerful, cost-effective line of controllers which meet market demand.

BACnet Testing Laboratories (BTL) B-BC certification is an accolade of distinction for ASI Controls. Obtaining the BTL Mark demonstrates a commitment to developing exceptional products which meet rigorous testing criteria.

Flexible integration to meet project demands

The entire ASIC/3 line including the ASIC/3-9540, 9520, 9536 and 6115 models received B-BC certification from BTL allowing complete integration with any other BACnet capable device. With the ASIC/3-9000 line, a user can seamless connect multiple ASI devices or competitor’s devices throughout an entire building.

ASIC/3 fully-programmable controllers offer unrivaled flexibility via USB host and USB device connectors, and easily integrate into BACnet. The ASIC/3 9000 series all feature Ethernet interfaces, optional wireless communications, SD-CARD slot, and offer additional integration into Modbus networks.

“These controllers all utilize the same firmware, so they call can serve a dual purpose as either unitary controllers or supervisory controllers for other devices,” said Richard Holman, engineering supervisor.

“It’s an extremely cost-effective and powerful solution,” he added.

Customization without front-end integration

Traditionally, controllers required the inclusion of a separate front end to handle alarm and event management. ASI Controls’ ASIC/3 line improves alarm and event management by allowing the controller itself to generate alarms and communicate events to either other controllers or a front end such as IntelliFRONT or Tridium Niagara.

ASI also integrated next-generation scheduling, trending, and device network management functionality in the ASIC/3 line. With fully-fledged BACnet scheduling and calendaring, users can meet specific customer demands for weekly scheduling, holidays, and exception periods within the controllers themselves.

“We can get really specific with things like UTC offsets,” Holman said. “Users have the ability to schedule UTC offsets down to 15-minute intervals and they can save and restore configurations for each device very easily.”


IntelliFront 4.5 ScreenshotUpgrade to an enhanced user experience with IntelliFront 4.5. The 4.5 release offers intuitive a user experience enriched with new features such as an app launcher menu, simplified alarm badge navigation, add/remove favorite views, and the ability to save an existing graphic as a new entity using the Save As Graphic tool.

For developers, IntelliFront 4.5 now has an extensive API library with documentation on FIN Stack properties and allows users to search through documentation categorized by available pods.

Learn more about the all of the new IntelliFront features and enhancements available with the 4.5 release.

IntelliFront creates a seamless and full-featured system experience across mobile, tablet, and desktop devices. The configure-once and reuse approach makes building custom graphics, navigation, data point information, histories, alarms, and schedules incredibly fast and easy. IntelliFront uses the latest industry and commercial protocols including REST interfaces and Haystack tagging, which means it is ready for the cloud and IoT applications.

And with ASI Controls commitment to backward compatibility, it also works directly with ASI hardware as well as BACnet protocols.
