Tridium’s JACE 8000 is an all-new modular hardware platform optimised for Niagara 4. This ‘next generation’ controller and its range of complimentary modules is a dramatic step forward in connecting and controlling devices worldwide, featuring a new global design for legacy systems with scalability for the future.

Global capacity licensing and upgrade capability

Determine the number of points that will be integrated and select the right capacity license from the start. License upgrades can be easily purchased as your needs grow.

Expandable with up to four option modules

Option modules directly attach to the JACE for additional communication ports, incl. LonWorks, RS232 and RS485 networks.

Modular hardware design for fast and easy installation

Controller and option modules are designed for easy mounting on a 35mm wide DIN rail.

24VAC/DC-standard global power supply
Intuitive user interface

Users can easily check the systems status by glancing at the front panel LEDs to diagnose network and power issues.

Rich choice of different colours, materials and finishes for differentiated OEM brand identification
Connectivity profiles
  • Native Wi-Fi capability – WAP or Client A, B, G or N networks
  • 2 x on-board 10/100Mb Ethernet ports
  • 2 x embedded isolated RS485 ports
  • Optional add on modules include: LON FTT10 | RS232 | 2 x RS485

Efficient global design

The new, modular design of the JACE 8000 controller 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.

Wireless capability

Standard Wi-Fi offers enhanced wireless capability when interfacing with the next generation of wireless sensors and devices. The JACE 8000 controller also is configurable as an access point so that mobile phones and tablets can display information and advanced graphics. Expansion also is available when interfacing with other wireless fieldbuses seen in connected buildings.

Optimised for Niagara 4

The JACE 8000 controller leverages the exciting new features of Niagara 4. It adds to the enhanced user experience, maximizing Niagara 4’s key advantages: pure Web interface based on HTML5 with HTML5 views, charting and data visualization, a common design language, better reporting, robust security and improved device management.

With simple configuration, tool-less installation, low-cost integration and high-powered performance, the JACE 8000 controller is a dramatic evolution in connecting and controlling devices worldwide.
