ASI Controls has added the ability to back up a controller via SD card as a new feature to ASIC/3 controllers running firmware version 3.5 or later. When the controller starts up the device’s configuration will be automatically saved to the SD card and update as changes are saved in ASI Visual Expert.
If an SD card-compatible device requires replacement, a technician only needs to install the card from the original controller in the new controller, power up the device, and then hold the service button for ten seconds. This will load the last saved .ASI file to the new controller.
ASI will begin shipping ASIC/3 controllers with SD cards in the next few weeks.
