The JACE 8000 is a compact and embedded IoT (Internet of Things) controller and server platform designed to connect various devices and subsystems. It combines internet connectivity and web-serving capabilities, offering integrated control, supervision, data logging, alarming, scheduling, and network management. Through Ethernet or wireless LAN, as well as remote internet access, it streams data and visually appealing displays to standard web browsers. Within the JACE 8000, the Niagara Framework® hosts applications such as Niagara Enterprise Security, which enhances security, and Niagara Analytics, an extension for data analytics.
The JACE 8000 controller features a simplified licencing model and comes with standard drivers, with optional IO and field bus expansion modules for increased flexibility and expandability. It operates on Niagara 4, the latest version of the Niagara Framework, ensuring optimal performance. For larger facilities, multi-building applications, and extensive control system integrations, Niagara 4 Supervisors can be used alongside JACE 8000 controllers to aggregate information, including alarms, historical and real-time data, creating a unified application.
JACE 8000's Efficient Design In Action
The JACE 8000 controller features a modular design that simplifies installation, integration, and deployment. Its tool-less installation and expandable nature reduce complexity and improve flexibility. With a global power supply and improved access to standard enclosures, system integrators can focus on engineering solutions rather than assembling components.
Equipped with standard Wi-Fi, the JACE 8000 controller offers enhanced wireless functionality when interfacing with the latest wireless sensors and devices. It can also be configured as an access point, allowing mobile phones and tablets to display information and advanced graphics. If necessary, the JACE 8000 can be ordered without the wireless interface.
