The JACE-700 is one of a next generation embedded server product family from Tridium that runs on the standard NiagaraAX® platform. These embedded server platforms support multiple applications like building automation and energy management on the same platform. The JACE-700 is designed to provide high performance for control functions in a convenient din-rail mounted package. The JACE-700 can be accessed by remote Web browsers over a local Intranet or via the Internet and remotely via an optional GPRS Modem card.
