    Cool need honeywell files for fx40

    The current jar files did not have the w7760c or the w7750c config files for the FX40. Any solutions?

    You have to be a Honeywell contractor to access the Forum.

    If you like the Honeywell controllers, why not buy WEBs instead of FX?

    To add to that.....

    FX40'S are at version 3.0.106 with tons of known issues especially when it comes to LON, your best best is with a Jace that is running 3.2.

    Also, you will "NOT" be able to utilize Honeywell's wizards on the FX40, Major handicap !!!

    This is because of HW though, not the FX.

    When and if JCI ever decides to upgrade to at least 3.1, they will/should work.

    The 3.0.99s didn't work. HW told me it checks the license 'brandID', and if it's not HW, they won't work. Same crap with the spyders.

    Honeywell wants to sell systems, not just bits and pieces.

    You need to decide if the the FX N2 interface is more important than the Honeywell LCBS and Spyder integration.

    It's also a valid question as to whether JCI will keep FX up to date with AX upgrades.

    JCI obviously does not keep up to date.....

    If you do not need the N2 driver, then stay away from the 40 !!!

    Couldn't find them in the file sharing section. There's nothing under WEBs AX. Where did you see those?

    Just another attempt to lock people up. Kind of defeats the purpose of the power of the Jace, dont you think?

    As far as JCI and FX's. They will always be behind. As Chris said if you dont have N2 devices to integrate dont bother with it. Lon applications are much better served with a straight Tridium Jace and Distech controllers. Now that is a true "open" solution. Then it just comes down to performance. and customers are not locked down. People who are good , fair priced, show up, and communicate have nothing to fear. Except getting such a good rep that people seek you out for work. Salesmen wont even exist. You wont need them.

    FX-40 vs 3.2

    I'm not the actual user/programmer of the FX-40 in my company but I know that we use the FX-40 as a Regular Jace403. We noticed that every Fx-40 we've got from JCI in the last 3 months have a valid 3.2 licence. We never use the JCI appliance: we just commission (upgrade) the FX-40 like a normal Jace 403 in 3.2 . After that I can asure you that there is no difference between that FX-40 and a Tridium Jace403 except for the N2 port (and the 4 JCI module that are still in 3.0 version).

    We have use more than a 10 FX-40 that way (on jobs without the need for N2) and we can't see any difference from our Tridium Jace403.
