The BAS Remote series provide the system integrator a flexible building block when integrating diverse building automation protocols or when expanding the number of points in a building automation system. By supporting open system protocols such as BACnet®, Modbus and Sedona Framework SOX, the BAS Remote series is easily adaptable.

For small systems, it can operate stand-alone. For larger systems, it can communicate to supervisory controllers over Ethernet. Depending upon the model, the BAS Remote has the flexibility to provide the following:
