Software drivers install in the same way that any other driver installs on the Niagara system (like drivers for BACnet, KNX, Modbus, etc).
Remove the legacy (branded) controller and connect the wiring for the existing network of sensors, actuators and devices to the Niagara controller.
The Niagara controller then appears to the network to be a branded controller – by using the software driver.
The existing installed network can be connected to the Niagara system, and fully integrated with other components, energy management interfaces, etc.
The drivers are written in java and are fully scalable to tens of thousands of points at high data rates.
The drivers work with all Niagara hardware and software controllers – JACE, Soft JACE, Web Supervisor and the equivalents from OEM suppliers like Honeywell, Distech, etc, also Alerton controllers running Niagara4.
