I have been working with JCI hardware/software for around 25 years now and am not satisfied overall with the quality and support of the newer products, starting with the FX control line. By the time we finally developed enough expertise using the FX products to do almost anything with them, JCI announced that they would be moving away from them. We are slowly moving to the FX-PCG line, but mainly on VAV applications only, still relying on the FX controllers for AHUs, Heat Exchangers and more complex control. We have been researching other manufacturers' products, but I am looking for real opinions by people that really use the controls. The FXs work well, but have so many little finicky issues, it takes us 3 times as long to program and commission them as compared to the older DX-9100. Is there anything out there that would be worth the time to learn and program going forward. I am trying to make a decision between looking at Honeywell, Alerton, Easy IO, etc.. Since everything is now BACnet, at least we don't have to re-learn the Network side, sticking with Niagara on the network. I am also not sure if any of these manufacturers will sell hardware and software to any contractor or if they need some type of agreement. We are so embedded with JCI, that it is hard to make a switch, but I'm curious what your real world opinions are of other control lines. Any suggestions or opinions would be appreciated.
