Johnson Controls FX20/FX60 Supervisory Controllers

Supervisory Controllers

The FX20 and FX60 are Web-based supervisory-class controllers in the Facility Explorer product family. The FX20/FX60 manages networks of field controllers using open communication protocols, such as N2, LONWORKS®, and BACnet® protocols. The FX20/FX60 supports a full set of building automation features specifically designed for commercial facilities such as scheduling, alarming, histories, data sharing, energy management, totalization, and customized control routines.

The FX20/FX60 includes a graphical system user interface and configuration tool that you can access with a Web browser. Remote access is easily achieved from an Internet, intranet, or dial-up connection. Multiple users can concurrently connect to the FX20/FX60. Security and presentation preferences are managed through user profiles, logon IDs, and passwords.

The FX20 and FX60 are very similar in physical size and overall capabilities. The main difference between the controllers is the superior capacity of the FX60.

In addition, the FX20/FX60 hardware and software design is modular, so you can add accessories such as communications cards, input and output modules, and software options if needed. This also allows you to select the controller most appropriate for the size of your facility and those options best needed to control it.

• Web-Based User Interface: Provides rich, graphical displays for system operation and analysis.
• Adoption of Industry Standard Communication Protocols: Allows for the integration of a wide variety of field controllers. This includes Facility Explorer field controllers and controllers provided by others without intermediate gateways or translators.
• Embedded Configuration Tool: Requires no proprietary or desktop software to configure the FX20/FX60. You only need a Web browser for basic configuration and monitoring.
• Modular Design: Allows you to select only those components needed to meet specific project requirements.
• Small, Compact Design: Installs easily.
• FX Workbench: Reduces engineering and installation time by easily and quickly creating the FX20/FX60 database from field controller configurations.
