Johnson Controls FX06 Field Controller

Field Controller
FX06

The FX06 is a compact field controller in the Facility Explorer range of products. The controller is designed specifically for commercial Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration (HVACR) applications.

The FX06 is a high performance controller with a powerful 16-bit microprocessor and state-of-the-art software for the precise control of many types of mechanical and electrical equipment. The controller has 17 physical inputs and outputs and supports a wide range of temperature sensors and actuating devices. Active sensors for the measurement of humidity, pressure, and other variables are also supported. The FX06 also includes an onboard real-time clock to support the start-stop scheduling of equipment and real-time based control sequences.

The FX06 has an attractive Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) with a set of graphic status icons used in the most common HVACR applications. The controller also supports a remote panel or wall mounted Medium User Interface (MUI).

Communication modules are available to enable the controller to be integrated into an N2 Open or LONWORKS® network of a building automation system. For stand-alone applications, the FX06 field controller also features communications services to transmit event notification messages via Short Messaging Service (SMS).

The FX06 field controller is fully configurable or programmable, using the FX Tools software package, for a wide range of commercial HVACR applications including multi-compressor and scroll compressors, close control units, fan coil units, and unit ventilators.

Refer to the FX06 Field Controller Product Bulletin (LIT-12011165) for important product application information.
