    FX-40 or NAE

    I have customer that has a NCM 350, he is thinking of upgrading his system to BAC-NET with a FX-40 or NAE.

    P.S can we buy FX40 direct from JCL I'm under the impression we can't

    FX hands down.
    Bacnet?For future? If its a straight conversion what would be the point?The FX has a N2 driver. with Lon and Bacnet ability as well. Buy them from a JCI ABCS. Make sure you get one with "Enterprise Connectivity" And with Full Workbench software embedded..

    Thanks for your response Freddy-b
    Can you give me more info why i would need enterprise connectivity and workbench software with the FX-40.

    Why BacNet? Customer wants to operate BAS in remote location.

    go with a Jace 403 or Jace 6 then from HW, Vykon, Distech, etc.

    The 40 is an overloaded, out of date burden, period.

    *But how do you talk to the N2 devices then without the FX40?

    And yet, still FAR superior to the NAE.

    *Frebby-d: Are you saying that you don't see that bacnet is the future yet?
    *A conversion to a NAE gives you a conversion upgrade AND is bacnet at the super level.
    *Then with the power of the NAE, you can and bacnet MTSP at the field controller level.
    *LON? Are you not aware of the LN line from JCI. I'm just starting on it, but it looks amazing.
    *I've been shown, on the web, that it's so good that other companies are buying them and putting their names on them. One of them is a company Dictech
