This compact, embedded controller/server platform, features modular plug-in I/O options helping to save on panel space and make installation quicker, and more cost-effective.
The JACE is a compact, DIN-rail mounting platform utilising the Niagara Framework® for integration, control and web serving. Ethernet and serial comms ports are included as standard. Plug-in option cards enable additional comms ports and a GPRS modem option to be added into 2 expansion slots within the unit. Up to 66 points of directly wired input and outputs can also be added via DIN rail mounted I/O modules.
The JACE makes it easy to install, integrate and deploy. Tool-less installation with expansion capability reduces installation complexity and improves flexibility. Systems integrators can focus on engineering solutions, not assembling components. And their lives will be simplified with a global power supply and improved access to standard enclosures.
Tridium has created an all-new hardware platform optimized for Niagara 4: the JACE 8000 controller. This “next-generation” controller is a dramatic evolution in connecting and controlling devices worldwide, featuring a new global design that functions with legacy systems and has the ability to scale for future needs.
