    Their website would lead you to believe that they will work with you but in the end they will pass along your contact information to a " local authorized supplier " ( in my case it was a competing contractor ). So I'll communicate with these using the " DeWalt Platform " ( cordless drill to remove from the cabinets and file in the site dumpster ).

    Call ASIC and ask for Chris in tech support, she'll help you out.

    From my limited knowledge they used some type of Modbus on their older controller and now use BACnet.

    On the Asic/2 they use their proprietary ASI protocol on the system and local bus, you have to have a 7540 to talk Modbus on the local bus, the 7040 only speaks ASI. How many devices onsite? If they have a router and more controllers they may have a Weblink front end that uses OPC.
