Controllers powered by NIAGARA

iSMA Building JACE controllers powered by Niagara AX has been designed to allow archive trends, alarms, easy and seamless integration of multiple protocols and data exchange between devices. In addition, in smaller projects where only 1 JACE is required can function as stand alone BMS system by building a graphical interface accessible from standard web browsers or mobile devices.


iSMA-B-MAC36NL is a compact Master Application Controller with built-in different types of I/O and operating in Niagara Framework environment. Using the specific local I/O set 16x UI, 8x AO, 4x DI and 8x DO allows to use the device in different applications. The controller provides control, data logging, alarming, scheduling, integration and visualisation.

To allow IP connectivity there are 2x Fast Ethernet ports which can operate as two independent ports.
Built-in 1x RS485 can be used to expand number of I/O by connecting iSMA-B-MINI or iSMA-B-MIX series I/O modules or to integrate with other subsystems.
There is another hardware version of the controller with the second RS485 port available.


iSMA-B-MAC36NL provides rich graphical interface displaying on a standard Web browser or on external display connected to built-in HDMI and USB port (touchscreen support) (not supported yet).

Main features
16x Universal Inputs (16xUI)

All Universal Inputs have 16-bit ADC which support the following types of inputs:
