- Niagara AX Special Software Lighting Control Components and Applications for upgrade or additional functionality
elitedali Multidrop for Niagara AX® offers all the functionality necessary to allow (from within the Web environment of Tridium’s Niagara AX Framework) commissioning, control, management and monitoring of DALI lighting networks just as for BMS and other systems.
Tridium’s Niagara AX Framework® is a global convergent Open technology platform that seamlessly enables the commissioning, control, management and visualisation of disparate networked control devices in a web environment.
A JACE™ (Java Application Control Engine) is Tridium’s hardware component for the Niagara AX Framework. This is an embedded controller that allows a System Integrator to connect many different types of automation and control technologies inside one hardware platform.
