The Application and Data Server (ADS) Lite-A system leverages the building control and data storage capabilities of an ADS with the scalability of the Metasys® engines to meet the needs of middle-sized buildings and campuses.
The Application and Data Server (ADS) Lite-A manages the collection and presentation of large amounts of trend data, event messages, operator transactions, and system configuration data. As Site Director, the ADS-Lite-A provides secure communication to a network of Network Automation Engine (NAE) 45-Lites and Network Integration Engines (NIEs).
The Site Management Portal UI of the ADS-Lite-A provides flexible system navigation, user graphics, comprehensive alarm management, trend analysis, and summary reporting capabilities. With the Site Management Portal UI, you can efficiently manage occupant comfort and energy usage, quickly respond to critical events, and optimize control strategies. The ADS-Lite-A includes an Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) compliant database package for secure storage of historical and configuration data.
An optional interface called the Ready Access Portal UI provides an intuitive, task-based user experience designed for remote operations of your building.
The Metasys system can communicate with cloud-based applications easily and securely. To make this connection, the Metasys system requires minor programming and set up by Johnson Controls. Once connected, you can access multiple cloud-based applications and features. To learn more, please visit www.jci.com and visit the Metasys product information page.
