Features of JCI Facility Explorer

Experience higher performance and less maintenance with JCI Explorer through a fully customizable user interface and controllers that provide scalable, system-wide control and supervision.

A suite of powerful engineering tools allows you to reduce energy consumption, improve occupant comfort, and optimize efficiencies. Facility Explorer from JCI provides enhanced capabilities and scalability thanks in part to the all-new enhancements that include:

Productivity Tools

The suite of productivity tools can help reduce engineering, commissioning, estimating, installation, configuration, cost, and time.


Exclusive to Facility Explorer, Auto-Tagging can lower configuration time from days or weeks to mere hours. Auto-Tagging is built on Haystack and custom tag libraries and automatically adds data tags during station import based on CCT standard applications.

MRP Ring-Enabled IP Controllers

Facility Explorer IP controllers are easy to implement and highly resilient. This allows for faster troubleshooting and data access as the Cisco Industrial Ethernet 2000 Switches connect all IP controllers with the supervisory controller and engine via the ring-topology network.

FX IP Controllers are the only Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP)-enabled BAS solution on the market and allows networks to support more devices per ring while quickly overcoming failures.

Next-Gen Equipment Controllers

The next-gen equipment controllers boost system performance and help reduce installation costs via the VAV Box and General Purpose Application Controllers. Fast processing, high-capacity memory, fast installation, and easy programming are just a few of the many benefits you’ll get from our latest controllers.

So far MACC has converted 4 of our buildings from Staefa controls to Tridium N-4. Their sales, engineering, installation, and service personnel both during and since these projects have been outstanding. They are a group of people that have had many years in the HVAC field so they know how systems are supposed to work and have made many upgrades in the logical programming to make our system much more efficient and user friendly which is far over what we would have imagined. The staff has been more than willing to listen to us as customers and combining our suggestions along with theirs to give us a product that has been seamless, flawless, and just plain works! So far this has been a great experience and a looking forward to working with MACC in upcoming projects soon to take place. I am willing to talk to anyone anytime to answer questions you might have about our experience. MACC can get you in touch with me.Paul Sexton Building Systems Superintendent County of York
