Ok, its been awhile and I forgot.
So please remind me.

I know about the new launcher and in the near future our NAE/JCI folks will do just that.
But I'm still faced with all the FX JACEs and AX JACEs.

I will always advise to take advantage of knowledge when it's offered to you. I teach final year electrical apprenticeship for a non union apprenticeship program. I've been in the HVAC controls...
I love not going to the same place doing the same damn thing day after day. It truly cracks me up that they tell kids in school to work hard, get into college and get a career. After they spend 4...
Shouldn't any MAU unit have preheat coils to prevent the freeze stat from tripping all the time?
If it doesn't, does a logical solution entail programming the hotwater coil to circulate with the...

Thanks for the response!
Yep, its both age and low bid.... can't seem to get it across to the Project Managers, etc how important it would be to spec one manufacturer. I think we are slowly getting...
Anyone else finding that they need a different dongle for PCT and FEC?
PCT dongle is a FX-BTCVT and an FEC is a MS-BTCVT.
Man, can't JCI just have one?
Hey out there!
I'd like to see if there are any other Controls guys out there in a similar circumstance...
I work for a school district that maintains 162 schools with more being built.
I would strongly advise you to do some work on the install side first. This comes from personal experience. I installed for 7 years as a journeyman electrician before I got the laptop and learned...
Uploaded the DX program into my GX9100 tool and traced back to the PID loop from the AO. I doubled the value on the PB on the data 2 page.
Works like a champ! No more chasing, it's a mellow, nice...

Great to hear all the different backgrounds and experiences.
I hear ya on the can't sit behind a computer all day Crabmaster!
I spent the day behind one today. Now ready to get back to plugging...
Just wondering how many out there are on the service side of controls?
What's your background? Did you do the programming side first and service later?, etc.
So I found some loose duct lining in front of the baffles in the Supply Air section. This looks like it came from the fire alarm guys installing a duct probe across the section. I reached in with a...
Thanks for all the replies!
- ASC means application specific controller in JCI language and I'm referring to the AHU controller, not the VFD. If you haven't worked on JCI's metasys line before,...
Ok, so here it is...
AHU unit controlled by JCI AHU controller. (Metasys)

I looked up FAN 410 in the CG Products search that is for JCI.
It just has 2 hits that mention enumerated sets.
I never installed JCI stuff. But did do a lot of Siemens, Invensys, etc. As far...
Did you check out the Johnson Controls Website?
Look under Metasys or look under scheduled classes. We just had one were the teacher traveled to our location. It was on FX series of controls and a...
Thanks for the help Dracula and Xarralu!
Dracula...we are the owners, but I did come across the administrator password login and don't know it (do you know the default?). Hopefully we have it on...
I read the last post on ALC with interest.
I am in a similar situation, however I found the database with the .eiw files.
Can I somehow pull all the old databases into a new Sitebuilder program...
I forgot to mention we do have a front end dedicated server and LGE and LGR routers that all work.
As far as 5.2, I got a call today from the local rep. The district won't go for the upgrade because of budget and we're gradually phasing out ALC.
I do have WebCntrl 3.0 and...
I do have my computer config'd ok from the sounds of all the helpful replies on this forum.

To Crabmaster...I applied for the pro status under the "here" link you mentioned.
For Xarralu...I did try many of the troubleshooting items mentioned by Hotrod 53... In particular doing...
Thanks MaxBurn and CrabMaster...
Yep, that's what I thought. You'd think since you have this ALC stuff in 16 different buildings that support would be available for the control tech. having to...
I was reading with interest a thread that mentioned ALC forums for FAQ,s discussions, etc.
Can I get onto it without some kind of subscription?
By the way, thanks for the recent help...
