ASIC/1-6000 BACnet VAV controller
The new ASIC/1-6100 VAV controller with BACnet MS/TP capability and UL listing is now available. The ASIC/1-6100 shares the same enclosure and integrated actuator as the ASIC/1-6000 VAV controller. It is programmed using ASI Visual Expert software, but you will need to download and install an updated ASIC1.mdb in order to recognize the new device. This BACnet VAV controller features the same control sequences as the ASIC/1-6000 VAV controller, and is compatible with the same sensors as other ASIC/1 controllers. If ASIC/1-6100 controllers are installed on a sub-network of a JASIC (Tridium JACE) device then the JASIC should have a BACnet-IP driver enabled so that ASI Expert will be able to reach the 6100’s by tunneling through the JASIC controller on BACnet-IP. You will need Visual Expert version 3.4 or higher to communicate with the ASIC/1-6100. An ASIC/1-6100 datasheet can be downloaded from the Integrator Center, or from the web page for the new product. We will start the BTL testing process this year, and expect certification may take approximately a year to complete.
