To integrate diverse systems a physical connection to a device's network is required. The Java Application Control Engine (JACE) is the mechanism that provides this connectivity to systems within a building. By connecting common network protocols such as LonWorks, BACnet, and Modbus, along with many proprietary networks a unified system without seams emerges. Scalability and reliability concerns are avoided with the unique distributed architecture that a network of JACE's creates.
There are several JACE Controller options including:
Ideal for smaller facilities, remote sites and for distributing control and monitoring throughout large facilities.
In small facility applications, the JACE-600 is all you need for a complete system. The JACE-600 also supports a wide range of field busses for connection to remote I/O and standalone controllers. Optional input/output modules can be plugged in for applications where local control is required.
The JACE-600 serves data and rich graphical displays to a standard web browser via an Ethernet LAN or remotely over the Internet, or dial-up modem. In larger facilities, multi-building applications and large-scale control system integrations, VYKON AX Supervisor™ software can be used to aggregate information (real-time data, history, alarms, etc.) from large numbers of JACEs into a single unified application. The AX Supervisor can manage global control functions, support data passing over multiple networks, connect to enterprise level software applications, and host multiple, simultaneous client workstations connected over the local network, the Internet, or dial-up modem.
A rack-mounted solution ideal for commercial and data center applications.
Specifically designed for commercial and data center applications, the JACE 5R-AX is ideally suited for users who require a compact controller that can be 19" rack or wall mounted. Its low 1U (1.75") height requires little room in crowded racks. A single JACE 5R-AX controller supports a network of devices via the LonWorks port, or through the four RS-485 ports, or the two RS-232 ports with the appropriate protocol driver.
The JACE 5R-AX can integrate a combination of LON, Modbus, BACnet, or legacy devices with the appropriate optional drivers.
Compact controller perfect for commercial applications
Specifically designed for commercial applications, the JACE-545 is ideally suited for users who require a compact controller that can be wall or enclosure mounted. A single JACE-545 controller can be used to support a network of devices via the LonWorks port and auxiliary devices that can be accessed through the four RS-485 ports or two RS-232 ports(unless used by the optional internal modem). A JACE-545 can integrate any combination of LON, Modbus, BACnet, or legacy devices with the appropriate optional drivers.
- JACE 403
Designed for light commercial applications with the flexibility to be wall or enclosure mounted
Specifically designed for light commercial applications, the JACE-403 is ideally suited for users who require a compact controller that can be wall or enclosure mounted. A single JACE-403 controller can be used to support a network of devices via the LonWorks port and auxiliary devices that can be accessed directly via onboard I/O, or through the RS-485 port, or an RS-232 port (unless used by the optional internal modem). The on board I/O can be used to monitor pulse contacts from power/demand meters, analog sensors or transducers, as well as control energy consuming devices with digital relay outputs. The JACE-403 can integrate up to 27-networked devices with any combination of LON, Modbus, BACnet,or legacy devices. For installations where more than 27 devices are required, the JACE-403-EXT can be used. The JACE-403-EXUP is an upgrade that eliminates the 27-node restriction on existing JACE-403 controllers.
Ideal for small facilities and remote sites
The JACE-2 is ideal for smaller facilities, remote sites, and for distributing control and monitoring throughout large facilities. Optional input/output modules can be plugged in for applications where local control is required. The JACE-2 also supports a wide range of field busses for connection to remote I/O and stand alone controllers. In small facility applications, the JACE-2 is all you need for a complete system.
Designed for remote monitoring and smaller facilities
The JACE-202-XPR is an embedded controller/server platform designed for remote monitoring and control applications. The JACE-202-XPR is ideal for smaller facilities, remote sites, and for distributing control and monitoring throughout large facilities. On-board inputs and outputs are available for applications where local control is required. The JACE-202-XPR also supports a wide range of field busses for connection to remote I/O and stand-alone controllers. In small facility applications, the JACE-202-XPR is all you need for a complete system.
Greater computing power for commercial and light industrial installations
The JACE-NXS is ideally suited for integration, monitoring and control in commercial and light industrial installations. It has greater computing power with 512 MB RAM standard, 1-Gb Flash drive, optional hard drive, and a 650 MHz Celeron processor in a fan-less cabinet. Jace NXS-AX-FL has no moving parts which provides increased reliability. The JACE NXS-AX-FL includes an integral UPS. This superior computing and processing power make it ideal for installations where large amounts of archives and graphics are required. Because it has a PC processor platform with hard disk and is offered with either full or embedded Microsoft™ Windows XP, the JACE-NXS is ideal for organizations whose IT policies dictate Microsoft products or when applications such as OPC require a Windows-based operating
system. This unit is available with either Vykon Release 2 or AX software.
Greater flexibility to choose your own hardware platform
Now you can take advantage of the real-time control, dynamic graphics, and multi-protocol integration capabilities of Tridium’s Niagara Framework on the hardware of your choice. The AX SoftJACE makes it easy to address unique application needs such as rack mounting, extended temperature ranges, industrial packaging Windows environment. The SoftJACE provides all of the capabilities of a programmable controller, multi-protocol adapter, network manager, web server (with optional Web User Interface), data logger and alarm system in a single software solution. You can run the AX SoftJACE on most Microsoft XP Professional®Windows Server 2003 and other Windows compatible computers. The AX SoftJACE communicates with external devices utilizing Ethernet-based protocols, and currently supports the industry’s most common standard protocols: OPC, BACnet IP, Modbus TCP, and SNMP. The client BACnet IP driver is included with the SoftJACE license, other drivers are sold separately.
