The AX Supervisor® is one of a suite of Niagara Framework® products designed to integrate a variety of devices and protocols into a common distributed automation system. It incorporates the industry’s first software technology to integrate LonWorks™, BACnet™, Modbus, and various Internet standards in a common object model, embedded at the controller level and supported by a standard web browser interface. Web Supervisor also includes integrated network management tools to support the design, configuration, installation, and maintenance of interoperable networks.
AX Supervisor® is a flexible network server used to manage multiple JACE stations on larger projects, or to provide a central monitoring station in multi-site projects. It also, optionally, supports direct communication with other systems via various IP based protocols, including BACnet I/P, OPC (client), Modbus TCP, EIB/KNX, LON-IP & SNMP. This enables seamless integration of other systems at the IP level, with a common browser user interface, providing much more flexible access (from any networked PC), and simplifying operator training.
AX Supervisor creates a powerful network environment with comprehensive database management, alarm management, and messaging services. In addition, the AX Supervisor provides a full engineering environment and graphical user interface. Advanced graphics can be created for display in any browser. The optional CSV, SQL, MySQL, DB2 and Oracle drivers enable seamless data transfer to these industry standard databases. The optional SMS service enables alarms to be sent as SMS messages. User selectable UI profiles enable support for touchscreens (large buttons and virtual keyboard) and non-JAVA enabled browsers.
