    N2 Integration Options

    As far as I know the options for us non JCI guys are either a field server, or an FX-40 / 60. I know that an FX would be the way to go. We are a Tridium office, but are not an ABCS. There are no ABCSs in our area. So the problem I have is how do I go about getting my hands on one? What are the restrictions JCI puts on ABCS contractors in terms of selling outside their region? Tks.

    Contact Cochrane Supply in Michigan to find out if they can sell to you.
    I know they handle the JCI line.
    Good luck.

    Take a look at our S4 Open: OPC-N2 Router. It was released about 3 months ago and is performing well in its initial installations. Hopefully, some of these customers will produce case studies for us.



    If you prefer a BACnet head end take a look at our S4 Open: BACnet-N2 Router. We are in the final testing stages with it.



    Our web site and contact information are in my profile if you would like more information.

    Yep.
    We're starting a job next week where we are removing an NAE and replacing it with an FX60, bringing an N2 and a Modbus RTU trunk into it. We bought the FX60 and drivers from Cochrane.
