Schneider TAC Xenta driver for Jace 8000 - Supervisor


The driver enables direct communication between Schneider Electric TAC Xenta controllers and Tridium Niagara-powered devices. Xenta series include a range of freely programmable controllers, which support a proprietary TAC protocol on top of open LonTalk medium.

Niagara device with Xenta driver provides a unique and cost-effective solution for Schneider building management system retrofit, seamless integration of various protocols and convenient makeover of front-end software. Xenta devices should not be reprogrammed and the original TAC Vista front-end could coexist with Niagara on the same network until the end of the commissioning.

Niagara uses a standard LON card to connect to Xenta network. Xenta device points and schedules are imported into Niagara automatically without complex engineering. They retain their names, descriptions and unit facets, which greatly simplifies the integration process.
