Tridium N4 +BACNET dumb IO
Hi. Looking for recommendation/advice. We have several circal 1985 Solidyne Micromizer systems that we are replacing with the jace 8000 and several RIO modules. All within the boiler room. But we have a few things we would like to pickup out in the building without going full DDC; ventilation, radiation, lighting for examples. We could use another RIO module, but we really don't need that many points. Any recommendations for something smaller & cheaper that we could wire to the BACnet bus? The functional device's RIBTW24B-BCAO with 1DO, 1DI, 1AO & 1 AI comes close, but could use a couple more analog inputs. Thanks for any thoughts you can provide.
may be try this:

Thank you for the replies. I should have said BACNet over MSTP so that takes out BASautomation.
Does the EasyIO have a slave-mode model; looked like ASC types to us.
At this point we may go with the cheapest solution although short an input for our application- functional device unit is ready-to-go enclosed in a box with a power supply that will even convert 120 supply. The exactlogix is another inexpensive choice but would require an assembly for installation. Both of these devices are under $200 where the easyio & Control Solutions are over $300.
The EasyIO seems like massive overkill for what your going for to pick up a few extra monitoring points and can be a little complex to program for such a simple application.
