EasyIO 8000 Network Supervisory Controller:
The EasyIO 8000 Network Supervisory Controller includes microSD card, (2) 10/100 Mb Ethernet ports, (2) RS-485 serial ports. Licensed for (5) Device/250 Point Limit, (1)0 Devices/500 Point Limit, (2)5 Devices/1,250 Point Limit, (100) Devices/5,000 Point Limit, or (200) Devices/10,000 Point Limit, this controller provides centralized site management. Integrate EasyIO controllers directly to the EasyIO 8000 (Niagara 4) supervisor with BACnet or TCOM.
EasyIO N4 Supervisor
The EasyIO N4 Supervisor is an IoT (Internet of Things) software platform used in server-class applications. It makes managing all buildings at an enterprise level possible, giving facilities managers the ability to quickly respond to problems and insights to optimize their system.
The EasyIO N4 Supervisor allows multiple Niagara-based JACE® controllers, along with other IP-based controllers, to be networked together. It serves real-time graphical information to standard Web-browser clients and provides server-level functions. These functions include centralized data logging/ trending, archiving to external databases, alarming, dash boarding, system navigation, master scheduling, database management, and integration with other enterprise software applications through an XML interface (oBIX standard). Also, it provides a comprehensive graphical engineering toolset for application development.
TCOM for Integration
TCOM is a communication driver between EasyIO and the Niagara N4 and AX framework. It simplifies the migration of Sedona Objects to Niagara with auto-discovery. There is NO need to create additional objects and NO need to export as BACnet or Modbus, which increases engineering efficiencies by up-to 50%.
TCOM provides the capability for the Niagara Server or JACE to tightly integrate with the EasyIO IP controller’s data including Sedona Objects, Time Schedules and Historical Data. All of which can be displayed and edited in the Niagara environment. TCOM can integrate directly to Supervisor software without an onsite JACE Network Controller. The configuration is simple. Point and setup data can be scanned requiring minimal engineering resources. To ensure optimal performance the TCOM driver provides for a “Tuning Policy” which controls the “read/write” of data so you can “fine-tune” your integration network.
